I’ve been spending a lot of time working with Oracle Identity Manager (OIM) lately and I’m putting together some walkthroughs / tips and tricks on working with the product.Â I’ll start with a quick and short one today.Â Sometimes DBA’s get wild hairs, I think its in their nature, the just decide they want to rename a database and tell all the developers that they need to make updates to their code / jdbc data sources to reflect that.Â Inside an OIM deploy with OC4J there are two files you need to change to make this happen.Â They are:
- <OH>/j2ee/<oim container>/config/data-sources.xml (2 places)
- <OIM HOME>/xellerate/config/xlconfig.xml (1 place)
If you search for ‘jdbc:oracle’ in each of the files you should be able to find these references pretty quickly.Â These are also the places you need to modify things if you are migrating into a RAC environment or if your IP address / hostname / port change on the database.
Hopefully I’ll have something with more meet to post this weekend.
So I’ve been missing from here, email, etc for a while but I’ll address that later, for a sneak preview of why you can see my new disclaimer on the right hand side of this blog.Â If you’ve been paying attention to the guys over at AppsLab (and who wouldn’t be), you’ll have noticed that they added some new functionality to Oracle Mix to nominate and vote on sessions for this years Oracle Open World.Â Not too long after the launch Jake mentioned that they needed some new ideas on how to review the submitted sessions.Â I had an idea to create a wordpress widget that lists all the sessions in a random order.Â It took me a little while squeezing it out while life got in the way, but here it is:
If you want to check it out you can see it running in the sidebar of every page on this blog.Â It’s a pretty generic plug-in, if you want to stream any feed from mix it should be pretty simple to modify, just remove the parsing for votes in the code.Â The installation is pretty simple: Continue Reading
