WebLogic – Cannot register for disconnect events on local server

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

When working with WebLogic, there will probably be a moment when you will ask yourself: damn, what is wrong?

Encryption of shell scripts

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In this blog, I will talk about the encryption of files and in particular the encryption of a shell script because that was my use case. Before starting, some people may say/think that you shouldn’t encrypt any scripts and I globally agree with that BUT I still think that there might be some exceptions. I will not debate this further but I found the encryption subject very interesting so I thought I would write a…

OUD – Oracle Unified Directory 11.1.2.3, How to change the Java version of OUD 11.1.2.3 with Weblogic and ODSM

By | Application integration & Middleware, Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

In this blog, I would like to show how to change the Java version used by OUD and WebLogic, in case you use the ODSM. The OUD (Oracle Unified Directory) is written purely in Java, not like OID for example, and so, it relies heavily on your installed Java version.
