WebSphere Plugin Key & Password Expiration 4/26
   

Accelerated Value Announcement:  WAS Alert affecting ICS Products !

WebSphere Plugin Key & Password Expiration 4/26

Overview:    WAS Support posted two Flash Alerts to customers about Expirations on 4/26.  These expirations could have significant impact to production environments if not addressed. The following alert applies to all products that are built on top of WebSphere Application Server, for example: Portal, Sametime, Connections, and Quickr J.

ACTION:  Make sure that your customers are aware of these items and the April 26th date .

1)The password to the Plugin-key.kdb file  that is shipped with the WebSphere Plugin install will expire on April 26, 2012:
 
Please refer to the following link for additional details.  

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21588312

The impact  of the "password expiration issue in the above flash" is that the https transport between the WebSphere plugin and back-end AppServers will stop working, if not resolved.  It means that the Plugin-key.kdb (and the personal & signer certificates in it) will not be loaded during the plugin initialization and the https transport will not be used.

2) The personal certificate  called "WebSphere Plugin Key" within the plugin-key.kdb that is shipped with the WebSphere Plugin install will expire on April 26, 2012:

Please refer to the following link for additional details.  

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21577327

This will affect those WebSphere AppServers that are configured to require SSL client authentication (SSL mutual authentication) and that are using the default WebSphere plug-in key.  Most of our customers did not configure WebSphere AppServers to use SSL mutual authentication between the plug-in and WebSphere AppServers.

Developing Social Rendering Lists

I started to pull together a static post about modifying a Social Rendering list, but the post was becoming unruly. With a special thank you to Matt Dull who graciously acted as my editor, we proudly present a video instead. Be kind... this is my first video endeavor on my Mac. [read] Keywords: mac

Dressing Up Connections - Social Rendering
Thu, Sep 5th 2013 8:10a   David Greenstein
I recently worked on a project where we had to service two different user types with one deployment of Connections. The customer had extensive UI and feature changes for the smaller of the two groups of users. To achieve this goal, I decided to solve their particular challenge with Social Rendering and API portlets to develop the extranet UX and enable the internal users to use Connections virtually out-of-the-box. Social Rendering is a feature of Portal / WCM released with the 8.0.0.1 upda [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus portlet websphere websphere portal wiki

Connections 4: Profiles Customization Gets More Flexible

So I am not sure if anyone else has really spent time with this feature yet or not, but IBM has rewritten the was Profiles customization and extension happens. It now takes advantage of the FreeMarker templating system for customizing Profiles, Business Cards, and Profile Search results. IBM has provided a demo example in the product wiki to walk you through the steps to execute a simple extension. The beauty of this approach is that code which would previously have been put into a custom [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus blogger profile wiki xml

Connections 2.5–4.0 Upgrade Notes
Tue, Sep 25th 2012 8:09a   David Greenstein
While working on one of the first 2.5 to 4.0 upgrades with my team, here are some of our lessons learned: You MUST use an HTTP server when running features from more than one WAS profile. Accessing some of the features like homepage, which make use of the ajax proxy, do not work in all browsers. Be sure to install and access your deployment through an HTTP server before you continue to troubleshoot. You can string together the database upgrade scripts (2.5 > 3.0.1 > 4.0) without install [read] Keywords: connections notes ajax application best practice blogger css database profile server

iOS Connections Mobile Update
Sat, Sep 8th 2012 6:10p   David Greenstein
If you have not found it yet, it appears the updated connections iOS app has hit iTunes. Be sure to update. I also expect everyone has realized C4 was made available for download yesterday. Started my first production upgrade to C4 already and a new install is likely not too far off. If this is any indication, I see a very busy 9-12 months ahead.
