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)”.
In previous versions of the WebLogic server an beahomelist file was created that contained the paths to the installations aka. the Middleware home’s.
cat beahomelist /u01/app/oracle/product/fmw;/u01/app/oracle/product/wls;/u01/app/oracle/product/adf;/u01/app/oracle/product/osb
When you deinstall a WebLogic server the path is not removed from beahomelist, but next time you install (more...)
If you create a OSB domain with WLST offline and the standard templates your Managed server will always be called osb_server1.
To get around this I normally just change the name directly in the config.xml.
But there is an alternative. Oracle has created a special domain template you can (more...)
Here is my experiences with installing SOA Suite 18.104.22.168 on Red Hat 6 (64-bit) using Java 7.
First have a look at the documentation:
Oracle Fusion Middleware Download, Installation, and Configuration ReadMe (22.214.171.124.0)
Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide (126.96.36.199. (more...)
Here is a quick way of creating your own CA and issue server and client certificates via OpenSSL.
I will test the certificates via the Apache HTTP Server by configuring one and two-way SSL.
I use Oracle Linux 5.
You should of cause only use this for test scenarios.
Since JRockit is dead this post might not be interesting, but anyway …
I have never used JRockit Real Time (JRRT). At a customer site I could see that JRRT was installed and the custom said that they used it.
But there was also installed a newer regular JRockit and (more...)
Often you do not want servers in your internal network segments to be able to access the Internet directly.
One way to get controlled access to the Internet is to place an Apache HTTP Server in a DMZ network segment. Internal servers can then use the Apache server as a (more...)
I have only used the Apache HTTP Server on Windows for a couple of years since I mostly use Linux.
Until now I have downloaded the binaries from the Apache Software Foundation or one of its mirrors.
I have been missing the latest releases (2.2.23 and 2.2. (more...)
I recently had to find the size of the data stored in the HTTP Session State. On MOS I found this note:
“Session Replication Fails Due To Non-Serializable Object: JSP Test Page [ID 1073386.1]“.
It contains a JSP test page that will show you if your session data is (more...)
