Goodbye Custom BlogEngine.Net – Hello WordPress

We used to run manzana.biz on blogengine.net, but lack of updates and some customization means that our stint with that platform has come to an end. Today we are redeploying on a wordpress platform.

Some stuff may still be wrong, or missing – but we are working on the needed changes.

Installing Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 2

Hi,

Welcome to Installing Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 2 of the series

Doing a Complete install of Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Oracle 11 r2, Win 2008R2. All from Scratch

In this part we will configure prerequisite software to support the siebel installation. We will install more software as we go along, where appropriate. But there is a lot of prerequisite software to install.

Siebel 8 is still a 32 bit application, running on a x64 os+machine, that means 32 bit versions of all basic software needs to be installed. Oh Oracle/Siebel get that fixed! Give us a native x64 build – thanks! (note to self and others – write to supportweb and ask for this!).

To Install a Siebel Development Server we will go through the following steps

  1. Install the Prerequsite Software (this step)
  2. Install and Configure the Siebel Enterprise Server
  3. Install and Configure the Siebel Database Server
  4. Install and Configure the Siebel Server
  5. Install and Configure the Siebel Web Server
  6. Patching and Postinstallation Tasks
  7. Installing Siebel Charts
  8. Enabling OpenUI

Here’s the initial list of things you will install and configure in this part:

  • install jre x64
  • install jre x32
  • install oracle client x64 version
  • install oracle client x32 version
  • Install and configure Microsoft Office 2007 x32 version
  • Create the Siebel File Share

Notice that I Install the x32 versions last, to keep my path env. variable in order like this:

Installing Oracle BI Publisher 11g1 On Windows 2008R2 Server Part 1

Hi,

Welcome to Installing Oracle BI Publisher 11g1 On Windows 2008R2 Server Part 1 of the series

Doing a Complete install of Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Oracle 11 r2, Win 2008R2. All from Scratch

In this part we will install the Siebel Application server. This server will house a complete Siebel development server. Production servers should generally not be deployed on a single instance as we do here, but the installation of the development server demonstrates that it is possible, this walk-through will focus only on the development server installation.

Before we begin prepare the Siebel Development Server by doing the following steps:

  • install win 2008r2 operating system
  • join domain
  • update operating system with latest patches
  • install your favorite tools (mine are notepad++, procmon from sysinternals and winrar)

To Install a Siebel Development Server we will go through the following steps

  1. Installing Oracle Business Intelligence Applications – Reports – BiP 11g – Part 1
  2. Configuring Oracle Business Intelligence Applications – Reports – BiP 11g – Part 2
  3. Configuring BiP 11g in Siebel

I’m still doing the writeup of many of the steps, as I bring them online I’ll update the links accordingly.

Siebel ST Scripting Engine – and ECMAScript Compliance

Hi,

Do you ever write eScript in Siebel ???

With never versions of Siebel (7.8+) Siebel introduced the ST Scripting engine. It contains a lot of changes, and Siebel may have jumped the gun a little by actually supporting ECMAScript revision 4, before the standard was finalized, but the information about the compliance is not to be found anywhere in the documentation, or supportweb….

I recently had the chance to discuss the subject with a very knowledgeable Support Engineer, that i have had the pleasure of working with on many occasions. Here´s his reply to my question:

Q) “Which version of ECMA-262 is Siebel eScript based on?”   

A) “Siebel eScript in Siebel 8.x is based on ECMA-262 version 4. This version actually never made it past the proposal status, as mentioned on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecmascript#ECMAScript.2C_4th_Edition

This fourth edition proposal contained new language features like static typing, which were adopted by Siebel eScript, to make scripts faster and also more robust against the typical programming errors associated with dynamic typing.

While the ECMA-262 version 4 proposal has vanished, eScript continues to provide these new features.

Siebel eScript does adhere to ECMA-262 as much as possible, but subtle differences may always occur, and this is more likely for ECMAScript features that are not documented in Siebel Bookshelf.”

Here is a link to the standards definition (note that this may or may not be the features supported by the Siebel implementation of ECMAScript 4…).

Installing Oracle 11r2 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 3

Hi,

Welcome to Installing Oracle 11r2 on Windows 2008R2 Server Part 3 of the series

Doing a Complete install of Siebel 8.2.2.4 on Oracle 11 r2, Win 2008R2. All from Scratch

In this part we will

  • Configure the Oracle Listener
  • Verify and Configure Windows Services
  • Configure the Windows Firewall
  • Do Connectivity Tests

The listener will provide access to the database instance we just created in Part 2. If you desire one listener can cater to more than on database instance on the same port, or you can chose to create multiple listeners on different ports, on for each database instance on the box. The latter provides better granularity control. That’s how I will do my install.

To Install an Oracle database we will go through the following steps

  1. Install the Oracle Database Software This was completed in Part 1 Here
  2. Configure the Oracle Database This was completed in Part 2 Here
  3. Configure the Listener
  4. Verify & Configure Windows Services
  5. Configure Windows Firewall
  6. Do Connectivity Tests

To Configure an oracle listener you need to run the netca from a command prompt. Follow the screenshots, and step guide below to configure the database for use as a Siebel development server.
