For a mistake the first time I ran and installed the cognos-setup.bat script inside CognosConfig package for connections 4.5, I installed both Transformer and BI Server on the same folder, E:IBMCognos64.
I fixed the error into cognos-setup.properties ( Transformer into E:IBMCognos and BI Server in E:IBMCognos64)So I removed everything with uninstaller on E:IBMCognos64uninstall. Only the BI package was available for removal.
If I try to run again the cognos-setup.bat script, the tiny Cognos Stream Installer in the upper left corner was every time getting this exceptionyou cannot install this version of the product over a previously installed version
After checking and doublechecking (regedit show no presence of any transformer reference, and I also tried installing and removing Transformer with standalone installer on the wrong directory, to be sure everything is correctly removed from user registry or whatever).
At the end, I had an idea: the response file for perfoming installation was still held into the AppData/local/temp folder. I uninstalled everything with Cognos uninstaller, removed physically the folders where I was installing, and purged everyhing in here
(If you can't see this folder with explorer, just type it in the path)
Now run again cognos-setup.bat and everything will install correctly

Hybris setup issue: Unsupported major.minor version 52.0 |

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
