Yesterday we conducted the SuperSunday WebLogic Hackathon at the UKOUG Tech13 conference.
It went well and people looked like they had a pleasant time.
I have enjoyed preparing for the event. The team contained a Brit, a Dutch, a Swiss and a Dane. It has been very motivating meeting people (more...)

Oracle Lifetime Support contains a lot of different features. It is not only technical support through My Oracle Support.
The Support Policy has 3 support stages:
- Premier – 5 years from general availability (GA) date
- Extended – 3 years extra (Normal support fee + 10-20%)
- Sustaining – Perpetual (Normal support (more...)
For medium to large size projects the network setup can be quite complex, especially if it involves several external partners or third-party networks (VPN, MPLS etc).
Normally network changes are done by network engineers that do not have access to the servers and therefore cannot verify the changes they make.
- Entropy pool
- Monitoring entropy
- Using /dev/urandom
- JRE – java.security
- rngd daemon
- Additional information
In computing you often need random numbers. They are used for encrypting stuff but (more...)
Here is my experiences with installing ADF 184.108.40.206.0 on Red Hat 6 (64-bit) using Java 7.
FMW releases are big and complicated. Between the main FMW releases, Oracle release some products on separate “branches”. This is to fast track new features.
ADF 11g Release 2 is (more...)
All FMW products except the WebLogic server is patched via the opatch tool. From FMW 12.1.2 the WebLogic server is also patched by opatch.
In a FMW installation you can have many Oracle Homes. When you install a patch you need to know which home to apply the (more...)

In some situations you have to restart a WebLogic server many times to get something working. A quick and dirty way of restarting a server is to kill the process and let the Node Manager start it up again.
When you kill the process you will see this in the (more...)
The WebLogic server stores its configuration in files in the DOMAIN_HOME/config directory. The main file being config.xml.
The way configuration changes are handled depend on if you are using the domain configuration locking feature. In Production Mode configuration locking is enabled by default and in Development Mode it is (more...)
The Apache HTTP Server does not rotate log files.
On Red Hat Linux, Oracle Linux etc. rotation of the Apache log files are handled by cron.daily and logrotate.
On Windows it is a bit more difficult because of the way open files are locked. You have two options, either (more...)
It is normally not enough to just install the FMW software you will also need to apply different kind of patches.
Each quarter Oracle releases security updates. The patch program is called the Critical Patch Update (CPU).
In the beginning the patches released by the CPU program was (more...)
Oracle no longer posts updates of Java SE 6 and JRockit to its public download sites.
If you have a support contract you can download new updates from MOS.
You can locate the Java SE 6 downloads in this note “All Java SE Downloads on MOS (Doc ID 1439822.1)”.
