ImportError: no module named wli: Make sure $OSBHOME/lib/sb-kernel-api.jar is added into the CLASSPATH.

ImportError: no module named customization: Make sure $OSBHOME/modules /com.bea.common.configfwk_1.5.0.0.jar added into the CLASSPATH.

java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Make sure $OSBHOME/lib/sb-kernel-impl.jar added into the CLASSPATH.

 CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$OSBHOME/modules/com.bea.common.configfwk_1.5.0.0.jar:$OSBHOME/lib/sb-kernel-api.jar:$OSBHOME/lib/sb-kernel-impl.jar;export CLASSPATH

Customizing the OSB Service through WLST script

This post will explain how to Customize the OSB Service through WLST script

The below WLST script will help us to run the OSB customization file.

import sys
from import FileInputStream
from com.bea.wli.config.customization import Customization
from import ALSBImportOperation
from import ALSBConfigurationMBean
from import SessionManagementMBean

def customizeOSBService(customizationFile):
    SessionMBean = None
        connect('weblogic', 'welcome1', 't3://localhost:8000')
        sessionName = String("Customization"+Long(System.currentTimeMillis()).toString())
        SessionMBean = findService("SessionManagement", "")
        OSBConfigurationMBean = findService(String("ALSBConfiguration.").concat(sessionName), "")
        print 'Loading customization File', customizationFile
        iStream = FileInputStream(customizationFile)
        customizationList = Customization.fromXML(iStream)       
        SessionMBean.activateSession(sessionName, "Complete customization using wlst")

        print "Unexpected error:", sys.exc_info()[0]
        if SessionMBean != None:

def main():
        print 'Successfully Completed customization'   

Customization File:

Customization file will help us to modify the environment specific values for a OSB project.
The previous post can be referred for more details on customization file.

Modify the  environment specific values in the customization file.

Running the Script:
Login to the server and copy the wlst script and the Customization file to some location.
Execute the below two commands

CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$OSBHOME/modules/com.bea.common.configfwk_1.5.0.0.jar:$OSBHOME/lib/sb-kernel-api.jar:$OSBHOME/lib/sb-kernel-impl.jar;export CLASSPATH /home/eaiapp/Albin/OSBCustomization.wlst

Before executing the first command change the com.bea.common.configfwk_1.5.0.0.jar file version according to your environment.

After successful execution verify the service from OSB Console

  DOWNLOAD OSBCustomization.wlst

Removing the default rowselector column from DOJO Enhanced Grid:

Make sure the value for rowSelector is set as 0px or remove rowSelector property from the grid definition.

var grid = new dojox.grid.EnhancedGrid({
        id : gridObjectName,
        structure : layout,
        rowSelector : '0px',
        sortFields: [{attribute: defaultsort, ascending: true}],
        noDataMessage:"<span class=\"dojoxGridNoData\">No Matching Rows Found!!</span>",
        plugins : {
            pagination : {
                pageSizes : [ "25", "50", "100" ],

Fetch Type vs Fetch Mode in Hibernate

Fetch type (lazy/eager) tells when Hibernate fetchs the association, whether in advance when it fetches the entity (eager), or whether it waits for the code to ask for the association (lazy).

Fetch mode (select/join) refers to how Hibernate will fetch the association, i.e. does it use an extra SELECT statement, or does it use a join.

Some combinations of these make no sense, e.g. lazy+join. If you use lazy fetching, then SELECT fetch mode is the only one that you can do.If you use eager fetch, then you can choose to use either fetch mode.

Creating Validation TextArea in DOJO

Creating Validation TextArea in DOJO:

Sometimes we may need to do the validation of the data entered in TextArea but unfortunately the default TextArea provided by DOJO will not support the validation .

We can create a custom component extending both dijit.form.ValidationTextBox and dijit.form.SimpleTextarea, this will provide the functionality of both the ValidationTextBox and

                  postCreate: function() {
                validate: function() {
                    if (arguments.length==0) {
                    return this.validate(false);
                    return this.inherited(arguments);
                onFocus: function() {
                    if (!this.isValid()) {
               onBlur: function() {

We have to add the dojo require for ValidationTextarea  -  dojo.provide("ValidationTextarea");

Using the ValidationTextarea in jsp page:

<textarea id="clntlocn" name="clntlocn" data-dojo-type="ValidationTextarea" required="true" missingMessage="Enter the Client Location Name" rows="2" cols="20"" maxLength="50" style="resize:none"></textarea>

Now we can include all the validations applicable for dijit.form.ValidationTextBox to

Validating the Email address in DOJO

Validating the Email address in DOJO

<input  data-dojo-type="dijit.form.ValidationTextBox"regExpGen="dojox.validate.regexp.emailAddress" required="true" name="email"  id="email" missingMessage="Enter the Email id"> </input>

We have to add  regExpGen="dojox.validate.regexp.emailAddress" in the

Also, we have to add the following dojo require


Handling the select event of dojo tab container

Handling the select event of dojo tab container:

<div data-dojo-type="dijit/layout/TabContainer" style="height:  400px;" id="client">
   <div id="usersTab" data-dojo-type="dijit/layout/ContentPane" title="Users" >
  <div id="akrTdrTab" data-dojo-type="dijit/layout/ContentPane" title="AKR/TDR" >

Add the below code in the JSP page to handle the selection event of the tab.

      dojo.addOnLoad(function() {
             tabContainer = dijit.byId('client');
             dojo.connect(tabContainer, "selectChild",handleSelectedTabs);

    function handleSelectedTabs(selectedTab){
                  case "usersTab":searchUsersData();
                  case "akrTdrTab":searchAkrtdrData();

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Mapped Statements collection does not contain value - iBatis

Sometimes we will be receiving the following exception when executing the iBatis queries.

org.apache.ibatis.binding.BindingException: Invalid bound statement (not found):
        at org.apache.ibatis.binding.MapperMethod$SqlCommand.<init>(
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Mapped Statements collection does not contain value for
        at org.apache.ibatis.session.Configuration$StrictMap.get(

The issue is due to server could not able to locate the mapper xml file.

This might be due to multiple reason, the following are the some of the ways the issue can be fixed.

1. Make sure the mapper xml file is in the same location as the mapper interface

2. Make sure the mapper interface java class name and the mapper xml file is same.

3. When u are using maven make sure the xml files are getting copied when packaging. Make sure we have added the below resource entry under resources section in pom.xml

Populating DOJO dropdown list based on JSON Data

Populating DOJO dropdown list based on JSON Data:

<select data-dojo-type=dijit.form.Select data-dojo-props='name:"dcDistcode"' missingMessage="Enter the Distict code" style="width: 180px" id="dcDistcode"></select>

var data ={"identifier":"value","items":[],"label":"distcode"};
            var len = newContent.length;   
            data.items.push(dojo.mixin({"distcode": "--SELECT--"},{"value": ""}));           
            for(var i=0; i < len ; ++i){       
                data.items.push(dojo.mixin({"distcode": newContent[i].dcDistcode+' - '+newContent[i].dcDistname},{"value": newContent[i].dcDistcode}));           
             var distStore ={data: data});

identifier specifies the value for the drop down list,  label specifies the display label for the drop down list.

newContent is the JSON data received from the server.

Converting the JSON text to Javascript Object

Converting the JSON text to Javascript Object:

We can use two approaches eval function or JSON parser 

Eval function: 

var jsonText="{success:false,error: 'Invalid Data'}"  
var dataObject = eval('(' + jsonText+ ')');  
The properties can be accessed from dataObject. 
var errorMessage=dataObject.error; 
The eval function is very fast. However, it can compile and execute any 
program so this may create security issue, if the JSON text source is trustable
the eval function can be used 

JSON Parser: 

var dataObject= JSON.parse(jsonText); 
Converting the Object to JSON String:  
var jsonText= JSON.stringify(dataObject);

Validating the DOJO form programatically from Java Script

Sometimes we may need to validate the dojo form programatically from java script.

<form id="createForm" data-dojo-type="dijit.form.Form" data-dojo-attach-point="form"> .......</form>

The below line of code will help us to validate the form from java script

var formResult=dijit.byId('createForm').validate();

The validation result will be true if the validation of all the filed is success else the value will be false.

Getting the selected rows from DOJO Enhanced Grid

Getting the selected rows from DOJO Enhanced Grid :

The below line of code will help us to get the selected rows of the  Enhanced grid


Getting the model value of the selected rows.

var selectedRows=dijit.byId(gridId).selection.getSelected();

for(int i=0;i<selectedRows.length;i++)

Stopping the Busy Button in DOJO

Getting the selected rows from DOJO Enhanced Grid :

DOJO busy button will help us to display the Busy Label to user while performing some actions, sometimes we need to stop the busy label and to display the normal button back.

<button data-dojo-type="dojox.form.BusyButton" id="loginButton" style ="margin-top: 10px; margin-right: -8px;" data-dojo-props="busyLabel:'Authenticating...'" onclick="loginForm()">SignIn</button>

If we are clicking on SignIn the button label will be changed to "Authenticating..." and the user will not be able to click the button again but in case of authentication failure the button should be displayed as normal

The below line of code will help as to cancel the busy button.


Getting the logged-in user details in Spring

The below piece of code will help us to get the logged-in user details from spring security context.
