clip_image002The Oracle ADF team is happy to announce the release of the Oracle Alta Workbetter ADF application sample.

You can now get the complete source code for this sample application, so you can further learn how to develop cool user interfaces with Oracle ADF Faces that implement the Oracle Alta UI design patterns.

At the last Oracle OpenWorld conference where we announced Oracle Alta UI, we got great reactions from people who saw the new Alta UI in our new cloud services and apps. And with Oracle ADF Faces it is very easy to implement these type of user interfaces in your application too.

The WorkBetter sample application is aimed at highlighting various aspects of Oracle Alta UI design patterns, and by looking at the source code you can learn how to implement each part of it. The application is hosted here so you can play with it. Here is a quick video that shows you how the application looks and behaves at runtime. You can get the source for the application from the Oracle ADF Sample Page. Read the complete article here.

clip_image002I had to estimate the effort for decoding a Base64 encoded message. Honestly clip_image003 A reminder to self (and for others working in the dark spheres of lowest level integration).

Python / WLST

You can easily decode a Base64 message in Python. With WebLogic installed this obviously is working with WLST (also in offline mode). No imports, no nothing, no questions asked:

‘Base64Encoded_String’.decode(‘base64′)

Online (I am tempted to write PaaS clip_image003[1])

For a quick I-need-to-get-this-decoded solution try one of the online services such as

https://www.base64decode.org which is working pretty well for me.

clip_image001LDAP servers can be configured to use as authenticator in Weblogic Server. In order to efficiently use an LDAP server, it must be possible to uniquely identify LDAP objects. GUID (global universal identifier) attributes can be used as unique identifier for an LDAP object. There are several specific and some more generic LDAP authentication providers available for Weblogic Server. The specific authentication providers have default GUID (global universal identifier) attributes (see here at ‘Use of GUID and LDAP DN Data in WebLogic Principals’). When using the generic Weblogic Server LDAPAuthenticator, there is no default GUID attribute. In order for LDAP caching to work and to allow browsing of group memberships for users, the GUID attribute needs to be defined. The entryUUID is a good candidate for this since every LDAP server should support it. See RFC 4530. Also see here.

In my example, I’ve used the user ‘maarten’ to authenticate myself with when logging into Weblogic Server. The user ‘maarten’ is member of the groups Administrators and DummyGroup. The debug information was acquired by setting the DebugSecurityAtn flag as described here. Weblogic Server 12.1.3.0.0 was used and ApacheDS 2.0.0 as LDAP server. For the configuration of ApacheDS/Weblogic Server, I’ve used the following: http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/03/ldap-weblogic-using-apacheds-authentication-provider/.

GUID Attribute set to entryUUID

In the below example, the GUID attribute is set to ‘entryUUID’. As you can see, the GUID is correctly determined and there where no errors during authentication. Read the complete article here.

clip_image002I’m about to embark on a journey that explores the use of WebLogic Server within a DevOps regime.  My first port of call for this journey will be using Chef.
A loose travel itinerary is:

  • Setting up an environment to explore the basic operations of Chef – using the Chef Development Kit (ChefDK)
  • Exploring the basics of how Chef works to install Java and WebLogic Server on a single node
  • Installing and examining some of the existing cookbooks that are available for Java and WebLogic Server
  • Extending the environment to provision multiple nodes to create a typical multiple machine clustered WebLogic Server environment

I’ve started working on the first task, where I’ve also explored using Docker to create an isolated, reusable and easily shareable environment that contains the ChefDK.
The Docker project is here on GitHub:

I also tried a quick experiment with using Oracle Linux as the base docker image:

The Dockerfile contains the set of instructions required to install the ChefDK and the necessary utilities into the docker image when it is built. Read the complete article here.

The feature highlights are:

1. Added a tab for displaying information about Elastic Data

2. Added a tab for display JCache Information when using Coherence to store JCache (JSR-107) caches

3. Additional metrics to track partitions stats graphically for a service

4. Displaying extra details for some data via drill down.

Displaying Elastic Data Information

We have added support for displaying a tab when you are using Elastic Data. We support clusters running 3.7.x and above and display information about both the Ram Journal and Flash Journal usage as well as the number of compactions taking place. Read the complete article here.
