Introducing Sametime 8.5.2

by Gabriella Davis Marie L. Scott Thomas Duff | November 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM Networking & Telephony

Why would a company or organization choose to use Sametime? They might choose Sametime because it closely integrates with their existing collaboration environment—IBM Lotus Notes and Domino, Lotus Quickr, or IBM Connections. They may also choose a real-time collaboration system such as Sametime to save money. Online meetings and instant messaging helps save money by eliminating the need for travel costs and long distance phone expenditures, especially if a company integrates Sametime with their existing Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system.

In this article written by Gabriella Davis, Marie L. Scott, and Thomas Duff, authors of IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide, we will cover:

  • What's new in Sametime 8.5.2
  • What has changed with regards to Sametime server architecture
  • The different types of Sametime clients available in Sametime 8.5.2
  • Why you should install Sametime 8.5.2 or upgrade from prior versions

IBM WebSphere Application Server: Administration Tools

by Steve Robinson | September 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

WebSphere Application Server, often referred to simply as WAS, is a JEE-compliant application server platform. JEE stands for Java Enterprise Edition and was previously referred to as J2EE. JEE application servers provide functionality to deploy fault-tolerant, distributed, and multi-tier Java software.

In this article by Steve Robinson, author of IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 Administration Guide, we will be covering a few of the command-line tools shipped with WAS to help you with problem diagnosis when WebSphere or applications are not running as they should. We will also introduce the IBM Support Assistant, a very powerful WebSphere Application Server (WAS) support tool, and walk through how to analyze a WAS log file using one of the many ISA add-ons.

Specifically we will cover the following topics:

  • Dumping namespaces
  • EAR expander
  • IBM Support Assistant (ISA)

Troubleshooting WebSphere Security-related Issues

by Omar Siliceo | August 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

It is not uncommon to run into issues when global security is first enabled in a WebSphere environment. Some of those situations may occur due to performing tasks out of order. Other problematic conditions related to security configuration may take place due to inadvertently omitting one or more steps in a set up process. Moreover, a third category of errors that may happen due to security configuration is caused by using the wrong values to one or more parameters.

In the previous article by Omar Siliceo, author of IBM WebSphere Application Server v7.0 Security, we took a look at tuning websphere security. In this article we will be presented by a set of some conditions that may appear in a WebSphere Application Server ND version 7 (WAS ND7) when global security is first enabled. The first subsection covers circumstances that may come about during the configuration phase. Next, a subsection is included that presents circumstances that may happen at runtime.

Tuning WebSphere Security

by Omar Siliceo | August 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

The generic term "tuning security … " some say, it's an oxymoron. Why so? Well, in many cases, tightening up security is normally reflected in poor performance. So, if a portion of your environment is performing poorly, it may need a review of the security configuration in order to see if loosening it a bit does not compromise the environment itself. This article by Omar Siliceo, author of IBM WebSphere Application Server v7.0 Security, briefly describes tuning in three major areas:

  • General security configuration
  • CSIv2 connectivity
  • LDAP and Web authentication

IBM Lotus Domino: Creating Action Buttons and Adding Style to Views

by Richard G. Ellis | May 2011 | Enterprise Articles IBM

Views serve as indexes to documents in a database. Virtually all Domino applications that contain composed documents also contain one or more views that facilitate locating and re-opening previously saved documents. Some views are intended for users, and some views are intended to be used only by internal processes or by formulas to look up values. Of course, you can use the same view for both users and lookups, but doing so can be problematic.

In the previous article by Richard G. Ellis, author of IBM Lotus Domino: Classic Web Application Development Techniques, we explored various view options for the web.

View templates are forms that can accommodate buttons, fields, and computed text as needed to enhance your views. Most views include a few Action buttons, so this article offers suggestions about including buttons on view templates. We will also take a look at adding style to views, opening documents in a separate window, and adding view scrollbars dynamically.
