SSL installation on Weblogic 11g – part 1

In this first of three posting series, we will outline steps to install SSL certificates on weblogic 11g server so that it can service SSL requests from client webservers such as IIS and Apache.

In this first part, we will show how to create java keystores on Weblogic 11g server. In the second part, we will show how to configure your weblogic server to use the keystores to make it ready for SSL. We will show how to configure IIS 6.0 to communicate with Weblogic 11g through SSL.


WLI purging forever

The Issue

Recently we experienced a strange issue on one of our clients’ Weblogic Integration domain. From Weblogic Integration console, when we were trying to purge process data, it was always showing a RUNNING state and didn’t allow us to trigger the purge process. After observing the phenomenon for several weeks, we realised the issue. The root cause for the change in behaviour is a deployment change for MDBs between 8.1 and 9.x. Since 9.x a MDB deployed to a cluster connects to a physical queue that resides on a remote server in the cluster. This was different in 8.1. Here the MDB connected to local queues only.
