Reserved characters in WebSphere Application Server passwords... Really!?
Thu, Jun 2nd 2016 11:01a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Had somewhat of a surprise today when IBM Support informed us that the issue our customer was experiencing could be due to unsupported characters in the password of the user mapped to the connectionsAdmin J2C alias. Say what!? But apparently there are restrictions on the different characters one can use. The password we were using had exclamation point (!) in it which is a no no. The customer is currently on WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.6 and support suggested we try and upgrade to 8.5.5.7

First Git hook for Atlassian Bitbucket (formerly Atlassian Stash)
Thu, Jun 2nd 2016 10:55a   Mikkel Heisterberg
For my current project I've setup a full CI pipeline to automate the build process of the application (an EAR-file in this case) and deploy it to the test server. The build itself is a Maven build that runs all the tests and builds the EAR file. We are a number of people working on the application - some do frontend work (mainly JavaScript) and I do the backend. The Git repository we use is split into three branches as it concerns this project - one for backend (feature/eventboard_backend), one

Using Tomcat APR (Apache Native Runtime) on Mac
Sun, May 15th 2016 5:30a   Mikkel Heisterberg
I had to document some steps using the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) and TLS configuration and for that needed APR on my Mac. I couldn't really make it work at first but after fiddling a bit I figured it out. There are the steps in bullet form: Download APR and compile Download APR from Apache (http://apr.apache.org/). I downloaded v. 1.5.2. Compile in Terminal. CFLAGS='-arch x86_64' ./configure make make test make install Install OpenSSL with headers The OpenSSL on Mac doesn't come wi

Test agents in Eclipse by extending AgentBase

I continuously get questions on how I do Java agent development and I'm happy to answer them as I hope that some of the answers I provide means that more and more Domino developers see Java as a strong alternative to LotusScript for background processing. Most times the approach I recommend is a mock object approach that I wrote about waaaaaay back in 2006 (did I really write that 10 years ago?!?!?). If / when you want to read the posts please start from part no. 1. Here's a link to all 5 pa

Working with routes from the IBM Bluemix CLI
Tue, Mar 29th 2016 4:48p   Mikkel Heisterberg
Today I played with routes on IBM Bluemix. Routes are how you access the app on IBM Bluemix so basically they are hostnames mapped to apps. By default apps are assigned a hostname under mybluemix.net but once you've proved a domain belongs to you you may also may custom domain names to your apps. Of course you still need to create a CNAME record in DNS to make it map correctly but you get the point. Working with routes is possible from the GUI but the command line interface (CLI) is more effici

Slides and recorded, narrated, demo from my Engage.ug session on OAuth
Tue, Mar 29th 2016 6:41a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Last week at the Engage user group in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, I gave a session on OAuth 2.0, how the protocol works and how easy it is the code against. The demo I showed at the end of the session showed just how easy it is and how little code is required to make a fully functioning OAuth 2.0 Client. Below you'll find the slides on Slideshare as well as a recorded, narrated, demo. The demo walks you through coding an OAuth 2.0 app in Eclipse and deploying it to IBM Bluemix. Oh and do rem

OpenVPN
Wed, Feb 17th 2016 4:19a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Have a Synology Diskstation at home which I among other things use as an OpenVPN server. When I'm traveling I enjoy being able to watch Danish TV without any geographical restrictions. I do this by having my OpenVPN profile (ovpn file) tunnel all traffic through the VPN incl. DNS. It also means that I can use it to safely browse if on a questionable wifi such as no-encryption hotel wifi or conference wifi. The two commands you need to add to the configuration generated by the OpenVPN server on

Certificate bananza...
Wed, Feb 17th 2016 3:29a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Helped a collegue yesterday for a few hours configuring his system with TLS certificates and showed code to enable authentication using client certificates. All easy enough if you know how... :) Start by creating keys and certificates for a server and a person and create a Domino KYR keystore using the kyrtool from IBM. The below commands were all executed on Linux. # change dir cd /local/notesdata/ # generate key and self-signed cert for server openssl genrsa -out server.key 4096 cat server.k

Custom widgets for IBM Connections v.5.5 and what the "themes" attribute mean
Tue, Jan 26th 2016 8:27a   Mikkel Heisterberg
Starting with IBM Connections v. 5.5 a new required attribute was added to the widgets-config.xml file that controls how widgets are rendered for Profiles and Communities. IBM addresses the issue by referring to a technote (Custom widgets not displaying correctly after migrating to IBM Connections 5.5) that mentions just adding an attribute. The fact that simply requiring customers to add static text is lunacy for a product - if you need something where a static text will do for most cases and i

If only IBM had a mail client...
Wed, Jan 6th 2016 2:57p   Mikkel Heisterberg
Over the last year we've seen more and more customers move to Microsoft Office 365 for mail and calendaring. The funny thing is that very few users actually end up using the webmail experience but almost all end up in Outlook. This made me think that IBM could probably still be competitive in the mail market including for the people who prefer a rich client if it wasn't for IBM Notes. The client is simply too bloated, too slow and too difficult to centrally manage and update. Oh and then there
