Documentum – D2-Smartview class cast exception

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

D2-Smartview is a new UI that OpenText now provides starting with the version 16 of D2. It’s a lightweight UI that can perform some of the actions that D2 does. The list of features will probably increase with time but at the moment, I guess it’s more for simple users that have very basic needs, consumer like roles mainly. An interesting thing is that with a small configuration, users can switch between D2 and D2-Smartview…

WebLogic Server – Automatic/Silent setup of a SAML2 SSO

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In a previous blog, I explained how it is possible to create an LDAP/LDAPs Authentication Provider on WebLogic. My initial goal wasn’t just to setup an LDAP/LDAPs on WebLogic Server. That was only a first step needed in order to automate the setup of a SAML2 Single Sign-On linked with the authentication from a LDAPs. Therefore, in this blog, we will take a look at that second part. Just like for the LDAP Authentication Provider,…

WebLogic Server – Automatic/Silent creation of an LDAP Authentication Provider

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

In a previous blog, I explained how it is possible to create an LDAP/LDAPs connection from a Documentum Content Server automatically/silently (without any need for a GUI). So I thought I would do the same thing but from a WebLogic Server to have the full chain from the Application to the backend, all connected to the LDAP/LDAPs. This blog isn’t linked to Documentum, it is really just WebLogic Server specific so if you want to…

Documentum – NoSuchMethodError on setResourceBundle with D2-REST 16.4 on WebLogic

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

In the scope of an upgrade project, with some colleagues, we have been deploying some D2-REST applications on Kubernetes pods using WebLogic Server. As explained in a previous blog, we first tried to upgrade our D2-REST 4.x into 16.4 but faced a small error. I don’t know if you already used/deployed D2-REST but it seems to me that the deployment is always kinda chaotic. Sometimes you will need to apply some steps and then for…

Documentum – Cast trouble with D2-REST 16.5.x on WebLogic

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

In the scope of an upgrade project, with some colleagues, we have been deploying some D2-REST applications on Kubernetes pods using WebLogic Server. At the beginning, we started using D2-REST 16.4 and that was working properly (once the issue described here is fixed (and some others linked to FIPS 140-2, aso…)). After that, we tried to switch to higher versions (16.5.0 Pxx, 16.5.1 P00 or P04) but it stopped working with some error. We were…

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…

WebLogic – Update on the WLST monitoring

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

A few years ago, I wrote this blog about a WLST script to monitor a WebLogic Server. At that time, we were managing a Documentum Platform with 115 servers and now, it’s more than 700 servers so I wanted to come back in this blog with an update on the WLST script. 1. Update of the WLST script needed Over the past two years, we installed a lot of new servers with a lot of…

Deploy WebLogic docker images using Docker Toolbox and Virtual Box on Windows

By | Application integration & Middleware | 4 Comments

I was interested to run Docker on my Windows machine and found out the Docker Toolbox for Windows that configure itself with the already installed VirtualBox at installation time. Once installed, You can start the Docker QuickStart shell preconfigured for a Docker command-line environment. At startup time it will start a VM named default and will be ready to work with Docker. Starting “default”… (default) Check network to re-create if needed… (default) Waiting for an IP……

Documentum – DA 7.3 showing java.lang.NullPointerException on every actions

By | Application integration & Middleware, Entreprise content management | 4 Comments

Last year, we started to upgrade some Documentum Administrator from 7.2 to 7.3 and directly after, we started to see some NullPointerException on the log files. We are using DA 7.3 on some recent WebLogic Servers versions (12.1.3, 12.2.1.2). We usually deploy DA as a WAR file (so not exploded) with just the dfc.properties, keystores and logs outside of it. This is the kind of errors we started to see as soon as it was…
