Un-bundle that Liferay Environment!

One of the most common questions we encounter when starting up a new Liferay project is: "Which Liferay bundle should I use for installation?" Our response is often not what clients are expecting to hear; in most cases, we do not recommend that you use any of the prepackaged Liferay bundles, at least, for integration, QA, and production environments. While the Liferay bundle is ideally...

Make your dynamic data list more powerful

Liferay Dynamic Data List  is a powerful tool to create simple CRUD applications without writing any code. But it is not powerful enough to create a real dynamic application, because simple CRUD actions do not contain business logic. For example, if we want to execute some custom code before/after adding or updating a record and perhaps want to make the custom code configurable for...

Alerting on elevation of privileges in SQL Server

Many of our Virtual-DBA clients need to complete audits for compliance with regulations. SOX (Sarbanes Oxley) is a common audit that our customers need to successfully complete. A common question the auditors ask is,   “How do you know a user has been granted elevated privileges?”   How do we do this? Let’s get started. The use of WMI queries in alerts...

LPX-00106: DataGuard Observer is Version Picky

If you're like me, you tend to brush off concerns of compatibility between Oracle Client and Server versions.  After all, SQL*Plus hasn't changed much in the last 15-20 years, and I've gotten used to being able to connect to pretty much any database server version with any version of it.  While that may be true, some of the newer client tools are version specific.  RMAN 11g...

SQL Server Deployment Considerations

Jaspersoft Studio – Passing Parameters to Datasets

To pass parameters from the Main report to the datasets, the parameters have to have the same name. That is, if the name of the parameter in the main report is ‘Region’, then the Datasets which need this parameter will have to have a parameter with an identical name. The datasets can be used once the parameters have been added to the dataset and the query.     ...

Liferay, Solr, Elastic Search comparision

To continue this series of blogs about Elastic Search, I would like to focus on performance. A lot of customers ask the big question: for search, what is the best solution? Liferay as is? Solr? Elastic Search? Anything else?   Many people would say that there is no correct answer for this, that it depends on a lot of factors, how important are searches, managability of the environment,...
