While migrating discoverer sso-connections, ‘ssomig’ hangs

Helped a collegae who was migrating a discoverer configuration to another node with a different version (from 10.1.2 to 10.1.4) with now a 10.2 – infrastructure database in a separate home. The OID-users were already successfully migrated, with a little help of the example-script here, but one of the problems was that discoverer didn’t use the single-sign on. The other was that the private and public connection users had made, had disappeared.

How firefox 3.6 accelerates the phasing out of Jinitiator (and frustrates Metalink..)

The customer is using Firefox, 3.5 in this case, and Internet Explorer (6!). Suddenly the application does not work anymore for a lot of clients, as a matter of fact, the firefox-users. They had upgraded their Firefox to 3.6., and got the message that an add-on must me installed ( appears to be the JRE ) . After installing this, it still does not work.

Logrotating of files like default-web-access.log with help of Linux

What to do about the ever growing files on Oracle application server as: - default-web-access.log - server.log and more.. These files are not logrotated (OAS < 10.1.3 ) and cannot always be deleted or renamed manually on a 'normal' way, and it must be scripted to avoid extraordinary large log-files. Quite annoying, until Frits Hoogland pointed me to a standard Linux-functionality, 'logrotate'.

Knowabouts regarding C# webservices connecting Oracle database

By | 2009-09-28T16:25:52+00:00 September 28th, 2009|Categories: App. Server|Tags: , |

A java-progam (.jar) is calling a webservice, written in C#. I'm able to unzip the jarfile to detect which service it is calling, but how do I know the service is listening to that name? Especially it's not documented and I don't have a clue about the name of the wsdl-file. A webservice, written in C#, is calling an Oracle Database. Oracle 9i client has been installed. Message appears: "System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater".
