AEM Forms – No SSLMutualAuthProvider available

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In the process of setting up the AEM Workbench to use 2-way-SSL, you will need at some point to use a Hybrid Domain and a specific Authentication Provider. Depending on the version of the AEM that you are using, this Authentication Provider might not be present and therefore you will never be able to set that up properly. In this blog, I will describe what was done in our case to solve this problem. The…

AEM Forms – “2-way-SSL” Setup and Workbench configuration

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In the past two years almost, I have been working with AEM (Adobe Experience Manager) Forms. The road taken by this project was full of problem because of security constraints that AEM has/had big trouble dealing with. In this blog, I will talk about one security aspect which brings some trouble: how to setup and use the “2-way-SSL” (I will describe below why I put that in quote) for the AEM Workbench. I have been…

Solr Sharding – Concepts & Methods

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

A few weeks ago, I published a series of blog on the Alfresco Clustering, including Solr Sharding. At that time, I planned to first explain what is really the Solr Sharding, what are the different concepts and methods around it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the time to write this blog so I had to post the one related to Solr even before explaining the basics. Today, I’m here to rights my wrong! Obviously, this blog…

Documentum – Large documents in xPlore indexing

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

Documentum is using xPlore for the Full Text indexing/search processes. If you aren’t very familiar with how xPlore is working, you might want to know how it is possible to index large documents or you might be confused about some documents not being indexed (and therefore not searchable). In this blog, I will try to explain how xPlore can be configured to be able to index these big documents without causing too much trouble because…

Documentum – Encryption/Decryption of WebTop 6.8 passwords ‘REJECTED’ with recent JDK

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

Recently, we had a project to modernize a little bit a pretty old Documentum installation. As part of this project, there were a refresh of the Application Server hosting a WebTop 6.8. In this blog, I will be talking about an issue that we faced in encryption & decryption of passwords in the refresh environment. This new environment was using WebLogic 12.1.3 with the latest PSU in conjunction with the JDK 1.8u192. Since WebTop 6.8…

Alfresco – Share Clustering fail with ‘Ignored XML validation warning’

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

In a recent project on Alfresco, I had to setup a Clustering environment. It all went smoothly but I did face one single issue with the setup of the Clustering on the Alfresco Share layer. That’s something I never faced before and you will understand why below. Initially, to setup the Alfresco Share Clustering, I used the sample file packaged in the distribution zip (E.g.: alfresco-content-services-distribution-6.1.0.5.zip): <?xml version=’1.0′ encoding=’UTF-8′?> <beans xmlns=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans” xmlns:xsi=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance” xmlns:hz=”http://www.hazelcast.com/schema/spring” xsi:schemaLocation=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-2.5.xsd…

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….
