This article describes the configuration of various JDBC-related features in the BEA WebLogic 8.1 Server. Although we use Oracle 8.1.7 as our example database management system (DBMS), the general concepts are easily transferable to other relational databases as long as the databases in question provide connectivity through JDBC. Introduction JDBC is a standard Java API that is used directly or indirectly by almost all J2EE applications that require database access. In BEA WebLogic 8.1, configuring JDBC connectivity consists of creating and configuring two main artifacts - JDBC connection pools and data sources. Related to these two principal artifacts are other secondary configurable artifacts, such as a Multi pool or a data source factory. Connection Pool or Multi Pool? Before we dive into how to create and configure a connection pool, we need to take a brief look... (more)

Also, a developer's requirement could be to store an Excel spreadsheet in a database table. The Apache POI HSSF project is an API to create an Excel spreadsheet. The data in the Excel spr... (more)

Configuring the WebLogic-Eclipse Plug-in

The WebLogic-Eclipse plug-in is designed to run the WebLogic Server from the Eclipse IDE. With the WebLogic-Eclipse plug-in, the WebLogic Server gets started and stopped from Eclipse. An application deployed in the WebLogic Server can be debugged from Eclipse with the plug-in. By installing the WebLogic plug-in in Eclipse the WebLogic Server can be configured and administered from the Eclipse IDE by setting the server classpath and JVM options in Eclipse. Overview A J2EE developer is commonly required to administer the WebLogic Server and debug applications deployed in the WebLo... (more)

How to Create a Directory Service Using the OpenLDAP Directory Server

A directory service is an application(s) that stores, retrieves, and modifies information about network resources such as network users. The actual data is stored in a database; a database service is an abstract layer on top of the database. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a lightweight protocol for accessing directory services. LDAP is based on entries; an entry is a set of attributes identified by a globally unique Distinguished Name (DN). Each of a directory entry's attributes has a type and one or more values. The attributes in a directory entry's distingu... (more)
