Patch SOA/BPM VM to WebCenter 11.1.1.8

At http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/soasuite/learnmore/vmsoa-172279.html one can find the latest 11g SOA/BPM Virtual Machine (VM) which also contains Webcenter. Unfortunately, Webcenter has been added in version 11.1.1.7 to that VM; as there are major enhancements in Webcenter 11.1.1.8 it generally makes sense to upgrade the VM to that version. At http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29542_01/doc.1111/e16793/patch_webcenter.htm#BABGAFDE a documentation for upgrading from 11.1.1.7 to […]

IT-Security (Part 5): WebLogic Server, perimeter Authentication and Identity Assertion

I tried to discuss about “perimeter authentication” in one extra part of IT-Security’s blogs, because this authentication’s process is an essential approach in a heterogonous world of systems, applications and technologies that they need to trust and communicate to each other.  Generally, we discussed about perimeter authentication, if a remote user requires an asserted identity […]

Java SE capabilities: Security APIs Java uses APIs to access security features and functionality and […]

IT-Security (Part 2): WebLogic Server and Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS)

OPSS Architecture As we discussed (http://modj.org/home/aktueles/it-security-weblogic-server-and-oracle-platform-security-services-opss/e17330b741d0e387ead1a36591466a7c.html), OPSS is Oracle proposals regarding enterprise security services. It is as a framework that provides a comprehensive set of security services. These services based on Java technologies and have a consistent approach for design and apply security policies to Java EE and resources. We look at OPSS architecture from […]

IT-Security: WebLogic Server and Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS)

IT security is popular in a way never known before! I love it! If I discussed e.g. in a WebLogic Server workshop about that, I heard normally form administrators: That’s not my thing, forget it! But newly, everybody wants to know “how can we secure our data and our information?!”  To be honest, you need […]
