[oracle@localhost ~]$ export ORACLE_SID=soasuite12c
[oracle@localhost ~]$ sqlplus

AVM Fritz: WLAN Mesh with Powerline Repeater does not work – Part 2

A month ago i tried to get the new WLAN mesh running with my Fritz!Box 7490 and Fritz!Powerline 546E.

Some days ago AVM release a new firmware for the 546E:

But even with the new firmware the powerline adapter does show up with the "mesh symbol" inside the home network overview:


I am wondering, if the WLAN mesh only works by using the powerline connectivity. AVM support pages show up the following advisory:

Contao: How to create a virtual system from your live website

Since a couple of year my sport club runs its website with contao.
Because our webhoster changed the support for php, i have to find a way to do an upgrade without damaging the running website.

The plan:
  1. create a linux host as a vm
  2. install mysql, apache2, php
  3. import the backups
The first step was easy. Inside virtualbox i created an ubuntu 17.10 system.
The second step was not that simple:

Mediator throwing incomplete BusinessFaultException

A while ago I ran into the issue that business fault information was not returned to the calling system by the Mediator component in the SOA composite. Instead, only a message that a business fault occurred was responded to the calling system. The response would look something like the below example:

<env:Envelope xmlns:env="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
	<env:Header/>
	<env:Body>
		<env:Fault>
			<env:Code>

How to Configure the Top 4 GSA Features in Mindbreeze – Plus 6 New Favorites

In the past few weeks, we’ve looked at why fishbowl chose Mindbreeze as a GSA replacement and how one of our GSA customers transitioned to Mindbreeze. Today I’ll share how to set up the most-used GSA functionality within the Mindbreeze InSpire enterprise search appliance.

Dynamic Navigation

The GSA’s Dynamic navigation enables users to refine a search using metadata attributes as filters. Within Mindbreeze this functionality is called Filter Facets. A default set of filters can (more...)

Ubuntu 17.10: problems with gnome extensions

After migrating to ubuntu 17.10 the unity desktop is gone and the system starts up with gnome 3.
As i wrote here, there are some problems with window decorations which can be fixed by (re-)moving some directories.

But i still had some problems with gnome extension:
The installation process via the webpage gnome extensions worked fine, but e.g. the system monitor did not show up...

Still Stuck on SiteStudio? Move Your Intranet and Modernize with WebCenter Portal

Fishbowl’s Enterprise Architect, Jerry Aber, contributed to this blog post.

Surprisingly, there are still many SiteStudio (Oracle WCM) customers out there using the product for their employee intranet. We just chatted with another one this week, in fact. I say surprisingly because even though the product is technically under support (extended lifetime) until 2019, there are so many advantages and benefits of upgrading a SiteStudio intranet to Oracle WebCenter Portal. Oracle themselves outlined a few (more...)

2017 hroug – Croatia



I came to #hroug2008 and although I really enjoyed it there were not any english speaking presenters and I found that intimidating. However now the SiOUG and hroug events run back to back, it is very different.


The event is still held in Rovinj but now on an island at the Hotel Istra. To even get there you have to go by boat.

It is a beautiful setting complete with its own castle which is (more...)

Manufacturer Replaces the Google Search Appliance with Mindbreeze for Intranet and Website Search: From Racking to Go-Live in 37 Days

In today’s post I’m excited to share the story of a recent Mindbreeze deployment. One of our long-time customers, a global leader in the field of industrial automation, needed a replacement for their expiring Google Search Appliances (GSAs). They had used the GSA to power the search on their public-facing website as well as their employee intranet. When Google announced the GSA’s end of life, they were left in a need of a replacement.

Myths about Wayland (display server protocol / X11 replacement)


If you ask Google abount wayland (which is shipped with ubuntu 17.10 or fedora 26) there are some articles, which are not or no more accurate:



"You can not export any X11 application to a linux host which runs wayland"
Wrong... Just login to other linux machines via "ssh -X"  and run xclock or whatever. It works...


"Screenshots will not work anymore"
Hmmm. Ok. X11 screenshot applications will not work anymore - but (more...)

Manually rotate WebLogic Server Logfiles

From time to time you have the requirement to rotate the WebLogic Server Logfiles manually on the fly without stopping the WebLogic Managed Servers or AdminServer, for example while you perform some load tests in order to have fresh WebLogic Server Logfiles.

Here is a small Python Script, which rotates the WebLogic Server Logfiles for a list of given Managed Servers and AdminServer.

You will need:

Ubuntu 17.10: Upgrade from xorg to wayland: window decorations broken!

Today i upgraded my ubunto from 16.04 to 17.10:






Up to this step everything worked fine.
But after the reboot i got tiny window decorations. This had to do with some further changes to the unity desktop - i used compiz there and this broke the new wayland configuration.

I found some hints about
dpkg --purge compiz-plugins ...
but this did not really help.
The way out was this:
mv .compiz .compiz.old

I didn't blog about that conference but I did comment on the three most wonderful user group presidents and (more...)
