Alfresco Clustering – Solr6

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco, I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository, the Alfresco Share and for ActiveMQ. I also setup an Apache HTTPD as a Load Balancer. In this one, I will talk about the last layer that I wanted to present, which is Solr and more particularly Solr6 (Alfresco Search Services) Sharding. I planned on writing a blog related to…

Alfresco Clustering – Apache HTTPD as Load Balancer

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco, I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository, the Alfresco Share and for ActiveMQ. In this one, I will talk about the Front-end layer, but in a very particular setup because it will also act as a Load Balancer. For an Alfresco solution, you can choose the front-end that you prefer and it can just act as a…

Alfresco Clustering – ActiveMQ

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco, I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository and the Alfresco Share. In this one, I will work on the ActiveMQ layer. I recently posted something related to the setup of ActiveMQ and some initial configuration. I will therefore extend this topic in this blog with what needs to be done to have a simple Cluster for ActiveMQ….

Alfresco Clustering – Share

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In previous blogs, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco and I talked about the Clustering setup for the Alfresco Repository. In this one, I will work on the Alfresco Share layer. Therefore, if you are using another client like a CMIS/REST client or an ADF Application, it won’t work that way, but you might or might not need Clustering at that layer, it depends how the Application is working….

Alfresco Clustering – Repository

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog, I talked about some basis and presented some possible architectures for Alfresco. Now that this introduction has been done, let’s dig into the real blogs about how to setup a HA/Clustering Alfresco environment. In this blog in particular, I will talk about the Repository layer. For the Repository Clustering, there are three prerequisites (and that’s all you need): A valid license which include the Repository Clustering A shared file system which…

Alfresco Clustering – Basis & Architectures

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

This blog will be the first of a series on Alfresco HA/Clustering topics. It’s been too long I haven’t posted anything related to Alfresco so I thought about writing a few blogs about my experience with setting up more or less complex HA/Clustering infrastructures. So, let’s start this first part with an introduction to the Alfresco HA/Clustering. If you want to setup a HA/Cluster environment, you will have to first think about where you want…

Alfresco – ActiveMQ basic setup

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

ActiveMQ is an open source Java Messaging Server (JMS) from the Apache Software Foundation that supports a lot of protocols. In Alfresco 5, ActiveMQ has been introduced as a new, optional, component in the stack. It was, at the beginning, only used for “side” features like Alfresco Analytics or Alfresco Media Management in the early Alfresco 5.0. In Alfresco 6.0, ActiveMQ was still used for Alfresco Media Management but also for the Alfresco Sync Service….

Documentum – D2+Pack Plugins not installed correctly

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | No Comments

In a previous blog, I explained how D2 can be installed in silent. In this blog, I will talk about a possible issue that might happen when doing so with the D2+Pack Plugins that aren’t being installed, even if you ask D2 to install them and while there is no message or no errors related to this issue. The first time I had this issue, it was several years ago but I never blogged about…

WebLogic – Upgrade of Java

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

If you are used to Java, you probably know that there are really important security fixes published every quarter in the Java Critical Patch Update (CPU) and it’s really important to keep it up to date. It’s always easy to upgrade your Java installation, you just have to deploy the new version entirely. In most cases, it’s also pretty easy to update the Components that are using Java (E.g.: Application Servers like Apache Tomcat), since…

WebLogic – JAVA_HOME in WebLogic, a nightmare?

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

Everybody knows Java but not everybody loves Java. With everything Oracle is currently doing regarding Java, I can’t say I’m blaming them… But that’s not the topic of this blog! hurrah. Well actually I’m not sure the topic of this blog is much better since I will talk about the management of the JAVA_HOME environment variable with WebLogic and more specifically a very simple WebLogic Server in standalone, nothing more. I always wanted to write…
