Diagnostics. If you purchased the Weblogic Management Pack license then
you already own it. JVMD allows administrators to diagnose performance
problems in production Java applications. By eliminating the need to
reproduce these “production only” problems in QA, it reduces the time
required to resolve them. It does not require complex instrumentation or
restarting of the application to get in-depth application details.

Last week I was talking to Seamus Moran, our
resident accountant and we chatted about the new Revenue recognition Standard,

We have released JAXB 2.1.17.
It has several bug fixes:
- Fixed HashMap unmarshalling bug.
- Fixed wrong ref element generation.
But the main reason for the release was broken Maven dependency for builds 2.1.15/16. Because of missed dependency com.sun.xml.bind.core jar. Now it should be OK
Prepare for Openworld!
The "Focus On..." documents provide you with a selection of the key sessions on specific solutions and product areas:

- Create new disk (and Physical Volume) and then add in Volume Group.
