Blog Topic: WLShell for Quick Access to Data
By Mark Vaughn
Sure, both WLShell and WLST have a good bit of functionality. WLST may even have more, in some aspects. However, WLST is still lacking the GUI ability to graph resource usage in real time. I initially looked at WLShell as a tool to script and automate changes to WebLogic configurations. That would make migrations between environments and across clusters both more accurate and less time consuming. However, in the process of evaluating WLShell, I found the all-important "-g" option.

Sure, "get /JVMRuntime/$SERVER/HeapFreeCurrent" will get you instant access to information on your JVM Heap, and "get -r 5 /JVMRuntime/$SERVER/HeapFreeCurrent" will get the same information and update it every five seconds. But if it is hitting the fan and you need to know why, "get -g /JVMRuntime/$SERVER/HeapFreeCurrent" is the command you are looking for. This gives you a graphical representation of your JVM Heap, and updates it in real time.

Now that you have the ability to pop off a graphical window on MBean attributes, why not check on your JDBC Pools, your execute thread pools, your EJB stats, and your cluster stats? WLShell has a decent selection of commands that will allow you to read from shell prompts, throw in a few "if/then" statements, and drop it all into a quick "for" loop to get quick access to a wide array of data from multiple managed servers in a cluster.

This script (http://dev2dev.bea.com/blog/mvaughn25/archive/EXAMPLE.wlsh) is an example of a script I use to pull the data that I consider critical to troubleshooting application issues. If an application is misbehaving, I use this script to get all of the data in front of me. That lets me quickly determine where to focus my troubleshooting effort and lets me monitor the health of the application as we address the issues.

Blog Topic: WebLogic 8.1 SP3 Long Value Bind Problem
By Franz Garsombke
After wasting about 5 hours on this problem, we have finally figured out the solution. The problem was that we had a database column of VARCHAR2 (4000) size.

Any time we would insert larger than 1333 characters we would get the following error:

(Hibernate operation): encountered SQLException [ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only for
insert into a LONG column
]; nested exception is java.sql.BatchUpdateException: ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only
for insert into a LONG column

which, needless to say, is very misleading. The answer is that WL 8.1 SP3 comes with Oracle 10g drivers, and we are on an Oracle 9.x database. This link is how to fix this problem: http://e-docs.bea.com/wls/docs81/jdbc/thirdparty.html#1050527.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
