When analyzing a (performance) issue in Fusion Middleware components, Dynamic Monitoring Service (DMS) Metrics can support you with the necessary information to support resolving the issue. DMS Metrics can be accessed using a variety of tools like JConsole, Oracle EM, WLDF, WLST and the DMS Spy servlet. The DMS Spy servlet is a perfect tool to get insight in the actual metrics but does not provide a way to store or g
In a previous post i wrote how to Secure Coherence communications for FMW SOA by enabling SSL through a Coherence override file. Setting up SSL involves setting up a keystore and truststore which are protected by a passsword. To access the key- and truststores Coherence retrieves the required passwords from the <password> elements in the Coherence override files. Currently Coherence does not support encryption
JGroups is an open source messaging framework used by Oracle Identity Analytics and used to reliably exchanges messages between all nodes in the OIA cluster. There are two different JGroups clusters active in each OIA cluster, commManager and OSCache. OSCache is a Java framework developed by OpenSymphony to cache content in Web applications, in this case the OIA web application. OSCache utilizes JGroups for reliable
When confidentiality is required for an Oracle Fusion Middleware environment, the first thing you probably will do is configure SSL for the domain. You might think that this will secure all your connections in the domain, but various FMW applications utilize different frameworks like JGroups or Oracle Coherence which connections are not secured by configuring SSL for the domain. Various FMW applications, like Oracle
Today one of the Adminservers failed to re-start and was flooding the AdminServer.out with multiple EmbeddedLDAP java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundException messages per second. [crayon-5598f7914e609385107465/] I do admit, this is not the first article about how to recover from this issue, and probably not the last. Although i was able to Google multiple articles and blogs on this exception, all of the suggested solution
Last week i was writing a Weblogic Console extension using AngularJS to retrieve JSONP data from a remote server. To be able to test the extension i needed a simple webserver which could send a JSONP function in the response. AngularJS expects the JSONP function name in the response which is supplied in the URL variable callback of the request. Therefore a bash script which returns a static JSONP function would not s
OIA can be configured for Web Access Control so that it can be integrated with solutions such as Sun Access Manager, CA’s eTrust SiteMinder, Novell’s ICHAIN. But what if you need to implement SSO for OIA using a specific authentication solution which is not able to set the username and password in HTML header variables?
