Debugging WebLogic authentication by Maarten Smeets

clip_image002Login information and group memberships (identity) often are centrally managed in Enterprises. Many systems use this information to, for example, achieve Single Sign On (SSO) functionality. Surprisingly, access to the Weblogic Server Console is often not centrally managed. This is caused by a common misconception that achieving centrally managed Weblogic Server Console authentication/authorization is difficult. As a result, often there are many local Weblogic Server users or everyone uses system users. Both workarounds have obvious disadvantages.

If you can obtain user and group information from a centrally managed authorization/authentication provider, you only need to manage those users there. As an additional benefit, the developers only need to keep track of a single password instead of a password per server. This increases security and developer productivity. Also it reduces operational cost. Your server landscape could for example look like the image below where minimal effort is required for user administration while still implementing a separation of concerns between development/test and acceptance/production. This separation is usually a requirement when different people are responsible for the environments and/or environments are on different network segments.

​An LDAP server is often used to manage identity. Usually there is already a managed directory service provider present in an organization such as Oracle Directory Server or Microsoft Active Directory which contains users, groups and login credentials. In Weblogic Server you can configure authentication providers to allow usage of such servers to allow access to the Weblogic Server Console.

The complexity of using an external LDAP provider as authenticator for Weblogic Server, is often overestimated, especially if a configuration does not work as expected. What can you do to find out what’s wrong? In this article I will provide suggestions on how authentication using an external LDAP server can be debugged in order to lower the bar to apply this configuration pattern.

Debugging authentication using Weblogic Server Console

The below decision tree can help with debugging configuration issues in a Weblogic Server. The steps are also described in the text below in more detail. The tree is specific to a configuration where you can login with users from the DefaultAuthenticator (Weblogic embedded LDAP server) and from an external authentication provider. Read the complete article here.

Docker – Take Two – Starting From Windows with Linux VM as Docker Host by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002My first attempt with Docker was from my Windows host machine using boot2docker, as described in this article: https://technology.amis.nl/2015/03/15/my-first-steps-with-docker-starting-from-windows-as-the-host/. Boot2docker is a great tool for being able to work with Docker on a Windows machine. However, I ran into limitations – such as not being able to create containers with the GUI applications running in them. Besides, Linux seems to be – for now at least – the more natural environment for Docker. So decided to create a Linux VM – actually a Virtual Box VM – that would serve as my Docker host.

In this article I will walk through the steps I went through in order to get this Linux VM running on my Windows host and subsequently turn that VM into the Docker Server in which one or more containers will be running – eventually to serve as demo and training environments, for example with Oracle Databases and Middleware. After all, Mark Nelson showed the way in this wonderful article: https://redstack.wordpress.com/2014/11/14/gettingn-to-know-docker-a-better-way-to-do-virtualization/.

I decided to closely follow Mark’s lead in his choice of Linux VM: Ubunty 14.04.1, to be created using Vagrant (about which I have blogged before – for example https://technology.amis.nl/2014/06/26/provisioning-an-oracle-11g-database-virtualbox-vm-with-vagrant-and-puppet-for-dummies/ ).

Stage One – Create Ubuntu VM using Vagrant

I have both Vagrant and Virtual Box set up on my laptop. From that starting point, I open a command line window and create directory into which to create the Vagrant configuration for the VM. Read the complete article here.

Deploy ADF Library Jar as shared library and refer it from Consuming App by Rohan Walia

clip_image002In this post I will explain a way to create an ADF application consisting of task flows as ADF Library jar and deploy it as shared library and then refer it in your Consuming Application. In this scenerio, we will not be creating a WAR, rather we will be deploying ADF Library Jar as shared library.
In this case we dont need to create weblogic.xml . We will use weblogic-application.xml which is already there in META-INF folder when we create ADF Application.
Created an ADF Application TaskFlowFirstApp.
The TaskFlowFirstApp is just having a TaskFlow with one fragment which displays Departments table out of DepartmentsVO.

The Task Flow application is deployed as a ADF Library Jar.  While creating the deployment profile for ADF Library Jar, need to add the MANIFEST.MF File like below. Read the complete post here.

Custom selection listener for af:listView, Invoke selectionListener programmatically by Ashish Awasthi

clip_image002In the last post (Better UI for data collection using af:listView, Enable selection in ADF Faces List component ) about af:listView, we saw that how can we present data collection in a better way using af:listView and enable selection using EL (same as used for af:table)
Now in this post i will describe about defining custom selection listener for af:listView
Suppose you have to do some task on selection of an item in list other than making it current row, for this you have to override default selection listener and define own custom selection listener in managed bean
So next step is to define a method in managed bean for handling selection event of af:list view

  • Select af:listView, goto properties and click on edit menu of selectionListener property and create a method in managed bean Read the complete article here.

Using ADF BC Declarative Built-in Rules (Part 9 of 10): Script Expression validator by Antonis Antoniou

clip_image002The last set of validators consist of the "Script Expression" validator and the "Method" validator which can be defined either at the entity level or the attribute level to validate either the entire entity object or a specific entity attribute. The "Script Expression" validator enables you to validate either the entire entity object or a specific entity attribute using a Groovy expression that returns either true, meaning that the validation is successful or false to define that the validation has failed.
The "Script Expression" validator has some very interesting characteristics which we will see in practice using an example by Frank Nimphius
I will be using the HR schema and the employees table to define an attribute level validation using a "Script Expression" to define a departmental salary budget and to ensure that the cumulative salary of employees per department does not exceed their respective departmental salary budget.
I have created an ADF Fusion Web Application and created the basic business components that I will be using in this demo; two entity objects based on the Employees and Departments HR tables, default view objects based on the two entity objects and a default application module. Read the whole article here.
