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.

Knowabouts regarding C# webservices connecting Oracle database

By |2019-10-05T19:23:23+02:00September 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".

By |2019-09-28T17:20:20+02:00August 11th, 2009|Categories: App. Server|Tags: , , , , , |

Problem: A report, designed for generating PDF with the true-type font Univers in it, does not work while deployed on the web, and uses other fonts instead.
Cause: there’s no Univers installed in the Reports Services on Unix.
Solution: install the font and configure the Reports Service!  Sounds simple…

By |2019-09-29T19:25:08+02:00June 12th, 2009|Categories: App. Server|Tags: , , , , |

Creating Virtual Host with Webcache and HTTP-server. Not that high-tech, but takes quite a lot of small steps, and must be done without taking risks in a production environment. I did this with Enterprise Manager, while I did not completely rely on my abilities on updating the $ORACLE_HOME/webcache/webcache.xml ..... , and eventually I had to hand it over to the production-DBA.

Headstart 10g installation/configuration 6.5.4

By |2019-09-29T17:38:36+02:00June 8th, 2009|Categories: App. Server|Tags: , , |

10 years ago the installation and configuration of Headstart was a lot of sweat(r)ing, mostly not automated installation-scripts with a lot of faults in it. And thank God it has not changed!! Scripts are Windows-oriented, never heard of Linux, documentation is not quite self-explainable.
