Siebel ST Scripting Engine - and ECMAScript Compliance



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:

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



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

"Doing a Complete install of Siebel 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.
