Cleaning Up After Yourself

Maintaining a Clean SOA Suite Test Environment Fun blog entry with Fantasia animated gifs got me thinking like Mickey about how nice it would be to automate clean up tasks. I don’t have a sorcerers castle to clean up but I often have a test environment which I use to run tests, then after fixing problems that I uncovered in the tests I want to run them again.  The problem is that all the data from my previous test environment is still there. Now in the past I used VirtualBox...

Whos Port Is It?

Who Owns What Port? It is not uncommon to be unable to start a server process because some other process is holding onto a network port that is required by the server.  The question is how do you find the offending process?  I thought I would identify some of the commands I use to track down wayward port usage.

Using Coherence with JDeveloper

Configuring JDeveloper for use with Coherence Doing some work with Coherence again and so I needed to create some Java code calling Coherence API and edit some Coherence configuration files in JDeveloper.  The easiest way to do this is to register the Coherence jar file and the Coherence Schemas with JDeveloper, once that is done then you can use JDevelopers XML insight features to help you create the XML documents.
