By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

After upgrading the Oracle Access Manager from 11.1.2.3 to 12.2.1.3, I extended the WebLogic Domain with User Messaging Services to be able to use the Forget Password feature.

Documentum – Checking warnings&errors from an xPlore full re-index

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

When working with xPlore as a Full Text Server (indexing), there are a few ways to perform a full re-index.
