How to Find the Elusive WSDL URLs in WebLogic

Have you ever had a need to test a BSSV server or respond to a request for a WSDL/End Point? See the steps to follow in the WebLogic Admin Console to get this information and test the WSDL End Point.

Quick Reference for Subsystem Jobs in JDE

Simply speaking, subsystem processing allows a quick-running UBE to be submitted both automatically and repetitively. Subsystems begin by loading environment specs when started and then continually submit subsequent runs of the job. This allows for more efficient processing, as only the UBE logic needs to be executed during all subsequent submissions of the UBE.

Planner Database Backup

A local planner database on your JD Edwards deployment server is often not included in the regular backup plans. Even if your deployment server is backed using your server backup technology, there is a possibility that the E1Local Oracle database might not be recoverable due to the data files being locked. A deployment server recovery might not be as simple if the local database is no longer accessible/recoverable. The planner database doesn’t change very often but it does hold a lot of important configuration details and a simple backup to disk once a month can save you a lot of headaches.

New Server Manager Features in 9.2

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Server Manager has always been an effective operational & technology tool. Historically speaking however, many customers & business partners have felt the need to supplement what is provided with more advanced capabilities. Recently, Oracle has introduced several valuable new features that are available at Release Level 9.2. Collectively, they serve to noticeably enhance an administrator’s ability to proactively manage, monitor & diagnose server-related issues.

Collaborate 19 Highlights

First off, let me say what a nice change on the venue; San Antonio offered a very good setting to host Collaborate 19. Everything was contained within a reasonable walking distance and I believe everyone enjoyed the scenery change! Following the pattern of previous conferences, Collaborate 19 offered 250+ JD Edwards education tracks, so there were plenty of sessions to choose from depending on specific path.

Impact Analysis: Useful Tool, or Auditor’s Check Box?

We CNCs have 101 tasks to do every day.  Some of them you WANT to do, and many are ones you HAVE to do.  Generating an Impact Analysis is one of those tasks that is both.  You should have to do it, AND you should want to do it.  In the long run it will save you and your company lots of valuable time and reduce the risks associated with change.

E1 Package Compression: To Use or Not to Use?

What is package compression and why do you care if it is used? I spent my first 7 years as a consultant building packages for one particular client. I built packages for 3 environments two times per day. I discovered three issues in the area of package management: disk space, time, and keeping development clients up to date.

Comparing Specs Using P98780H – Work with Repository History

Repository History is created when you apply an ESU, check an object in, promote an object in OMW, etc. You can access the Repository to get information about all historical actions that have been taken affecting object specifications. For this example, after application of an ESU, errors were being received that indicated there was a problem with the structure of one of the JDE tables. The ESU was reapplied using Force Merge for this object, but the error remained. In order to verify that specs were updated by application of the ESU, P98780H was used to export objects and compare them.

Databrowser Security – Part II – The 9.1 Remix

So, way back last year (okay, just a few weeks ago), Chris wrote Part 1 of this blog, and promised a Part 2 with a 9.1 workaround for the same problem. To recap – a client wanted to grant access via Databrowser to just a few tables for a role. We knew we couldn’t use object level security, as that would completely limit that user in all of E1 to just those few tables. In the first part of this blog – I’ll pause here in case you want to go re-read – Chris talked about how to accomplish this in 9.2 with UDO View security. But there are still E1 customers on 9.1, so how could they accomplish something similar without the cool UDO features you get in 9.2?

Databrowser Security – Part I

Recently, a client came to me with a request to give temporary databrowser access for just a few tables to a new role that was being created. My first thought – not possible, based on having to setup table security within security workbench to deny access to all tables and grant back access to the [...]
