We had an odd scenario with a Novell directory, where the uid attribute was mapped in another attribute. To support this scenario first we had to modify wimconfig.xml into WebSphere configuration to expose uid as another attribute (edit under <config:attributeConfiguration> )
<config:attributes name="customUid" propertyName="uid">
then after mapping in TDI scripts, into map_db_from_source.properties the following,
we noticed that every user trying to accessing got an exception like this one
AssertionException: Unsupported access by user with no profile: cn=FRANCESCO DE COLLIBUS,ou=users,dc=test,dc=com
Making the SQL query
connect to PEOPLEDB
select * from EMPINST.EMPLOYEE where PROF_SURNAME like '%De Collibus%'
my record in database was correctly found
So we deployed snoop servlet and we noticed how the user was presenting himself to the Connections
The UserPrincipal and the RemoteUser, both contained DistinguishedName.
So into map_db_from_source.properties we mapped
We ran a sync_all_dns script, and now users can correctly access.

While I was typing the final "ant all" command for hybris, it miserably failed with the following exception hybris/bin/platform/resources/ant/antmacros.xml:123: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: de/hybris/ant/taskdefs/DbDriverValidator : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0 at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method) Even though a "java -version" gave me back version 8, ant is still using $JAVA_HOME variable. So you have to change it into the script. My suggestion is that y
If you can't install Oracle Express XE 11g 2 on Windows...|

I spent the whole afternoon trying to set up a Oracle Express instance without any success. I had the drivers installed, but I could not uninstall them. It looked like the main instance was not correctly set up. After looking around, I noticed that even after complete uninstall of Oracle XE still the ORACLE_HOME environment variable was still there. I tried again manually removing it from System Variables and then reinstalling... and it finally worked!
How could I be so stupid using hibernate criteria with timestamp? |
Wed, Aug 31st 2016 8:06p Francesco De Collibus
I needed to make a query to find all records valid today for columns with effectiveFrom and effectiveTo range I spent a couple of hours trying to understand why criteria.add(Restrictions.ge("effectiveFrom",currentDate.getTime())); criteria.add(Restrictions.le("effectiveTo",currentDate.getTime())); was giving no results. After many trials and attempts with other criteria tricks, I remembered that hibernate is not comparting if currentDate.getTime is greater than ef
