Issue with migrating BPEL from Orace SOA 11g to Oracle SOA 12C - An unexpected Server error has occurred in JDeveloper

Issue with migrating  BPEL from Orace SOA 11g to Oracle SOA 12C - An unexpected Server error has occurred in JDeveloper

Issue:

Trying to migrate some composites from Oracle SOA 11.1.1.5 to 12c. But after I load the project in JDeveloper 12c, its throwing the error "An unexpected Server error has occurred in JDeveloper" and its giving the options like 1)"save all files and exit" 2) Exit without saving 3) continue.

Selected “continue" option and after that tried opening "*.BPEL" file and its completely blank and also all the wires were disappeared from "Composite.xml".

1) Open your SOA project in JDeveloper version 11.1.1.5 and create the SAR ( deployable ) file into your deploy folder. ( Ex: scaSample_rev001.jar )

2) Close the JDeveloper 11.1.1.5 and now open JDeveloper 12c ,

3) File -> Import -> select "SOA Archive Into SOA Project" -> OK -> Next -> Composite Archive Browse to the above SAR file created ( Ex: scaSample_rev001.jar )

4) The composite.xml  and BPEL file will show the content now

Configuring same short URL/Vanity URL for different sites with https – Adobe CQ5

This post will explain how to configure same short URL/Vanity URL for different sites that is accessible through https in Adobe CQ5/AEM.

Recently we had a scenario to be implemented, two different websites needs to be accessed with same URL and with https protocol.
e.g
https://example1.com/en.html
https://example2.com/en.html

Both the sites are mapped to different nodes as below

https://example1.com/en.html  --> /content/example1/en
https://example2.com/en.html --> /content/example2/en

Create the redirect rules in dispatchers, inside the corresponding virtual host (httpd.conf) to redirect the http request to https and to shorten the URL’s .

RewriteRule ^/content/example1/(.*)$  /$1 [NE,L,R=301]

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^/$ https:// example1.com/en.html
RewriteRule ^/en.html https:// example1.com/en.html
RewriteRule ^/en/(.*)$ https:// example1.com/en/$1

Repeat the same for example2.com and for all the dispatchers.

Mapping in publisher :

Go to <<AEM Publisher Host>>:4503/system/console/configMgr with admin credentials. Search for Apache Sling Resource Resolver, and change the value of mapping location from /etc/map to /etc/map.publish

This is caused by using an incorrect JDK version(1.8).
All Fusion Middlleware 12.1.3 products will run on JDK 1.7.55+ version.

To fix the issue downgrade the JDK to supported version.

Downgrade the JDK:

Change all the JDK location referred in the following paths:

<<Middleware_Home>>/Oracle_Home/user_projects/SOA_domain/bin/setDomainEnv.sh

<<Middleware_Home>>/Oracle_Home/oracle_common/common/bin/commEnv.sh

<<Middleware_Home>>/Oracle_Home/user_projects/SOA_domain/nodemanager/nodemanager.properties

502 Bad Gateway while accessing /libs/cq/security/userinfo.json via telnet after upgrading to AEM 6.1

We were using /libs/cq/security/userinfo.json url in BIG-IP via telnet to check the staus of the server(heartbeat check of AEM servers) to control the availablity of servers in BIG-IP.

This is working fine in AEM 5.6.1 but it stopped working after upgrading AEM to 6.1(the server status is down in BIG-IP even though the server is up).

The same URL is working fine using wget,curl command and also from browsers, only not working via telnet(This issue is only via dispatcher but it is working fine directly with publisher)

Trying 10.xxx.xxx.xxx...
Connected to 10.xxx.xxx.xxx.

org.apache.sling.commons.json.JSONException: Misplaced array - JSONWriter

The Misplaced array exception is thrown,While we are trying to create the JSON Array of objects from the servlet using - org.apache.sling.commons.json.io.JSONWriter.

Code:-

JSONWriter writer=new JSONWriter(response.getWriter());
try {
writer.object();
writer.key("authorName").value("test");
writer.key("biography").value("test");
writer.key("image").value("test");
writer.array();
writer.object();
writer.key("authorName").value("test");
writer.key("biography").value("test");
writer.endObject();
writer.endArray();
writer.endObject();
} catch (JSONException e) {

}

The root cause of the exception is not providing the key for initialized array(there will be different scenarios we will receive this exception)

To fix the issue as shown below in the code, add the key before starting the array.

JSONWriter writer=new JSONWriter(response.getWriter());
try {
writer.object();
writer.key("authorName").value("test");
writer.key("biography").value("test");
writer.key("image").value("test");
writer.key("list");

writer.object();
writer.key("authorName").value("test");
writer.key("biography").value("test");
writer.endObject();
writer.endArray();
writer.endObject();
} catch (JSONException e) {

}  

O/P

{"authorName":"test","biography":"test","image":"test","list":[{"authorName":"test","biography":"test"}]}

Taxonomy/Tag issue after upgrading to AEM 6.1

Taxonomy/Tags are used for search purpose. These tags are used by external search tool to provide the details.

Issue being discussed here is about the Meta tags not being displayed.


This issue is expected to be seen after upgrading the environment to AEM 6.1 version and the root cause is due to change in the user permission.

To resolve this issue provide the required permissions, go to Useradmin. Give permission (Read, Modify, Create, Delete, and Replicate) to /etc/tags folder for the group everyone.

Only Read access is sufficient for publisher instance.

Enabling basic authentication for specific website in dispatcher : Adobe CQ5/Adobe AEM

Create a file dispatcher.htaccess in dispatcher.
Create the required users by using the following commands.

htpasswd -c /etc/httpd/conf/dispatcher.htaccess user1

Add the following configurations to the httpd.conf, change the site URL and AuthUserFile accordingly:

# unsets authorization header when sending request to AEM
RequestHeader unset Authorization
SetEnvIf Request_URI ^/content/en* auth=1
AuthName "Please login to access english part"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/dispatcher.htaccess
# first, allow everybody
Order Allow,Deny
Satisfy any
Allow from all
Require valid-user
# then, deny only if required
Deny from env=auth

This will enable the the basic authentication for the website path starts with /content/en

If the site is enabled for https then add the following content to the ssl.conf file

<Location />
# unsets authorization header when sending request to AEM
RequestHeader unset Authorization
SetEnvIf Request_URI ^/content/en* auths=1
AuthName "Please login to access english part"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/dispatcher.htaccess
# first, allow everybody
Order Allow,Deny
Satisfy any
Allow from all
Require valid-user
# then, deny only if required
Deny from env=auths
</Location>

Adobe CQ/Adobe AEM: Configuration Services for Multiple Sites through configurationFactory

Adobe CQ/Adobe AEM: Configuration Services for Multiple Sites through configurationFactory

Sometimes, we have to define configuration services that will differ only with configuration values. For e.g we will have different sites that will use the same configuration service but with different configuration values specific to sites.

In this scenario, we have to create a site specific configuration service for all the sites (multiple services) but OSGI provides the concept of ServiceFactories, the service factory can be used to create configuration services with same set of properties and different values.

As an example let’s assume, we have two different sites that will use the same configuration service but require site specific configuration values. The configurationFactory can be used to create configuration service for different sites.

Suppressing the Selection Failure exception in Assign activity – Oracle SOA Suite

This post will explain how to suppress the Selection Failure exception BPEL Assign activity – Oracle SOA Suite
In BPEL Assign activity if the xpath returns empty result then SelectionFailure RuntimeFault will be thrown by the engine.

But some cases we may need to suppress the selectionFailure error while assigning the optional elements.

In my case I have a assign activity that will mapthe elements  input and input1 from inputVariable to result and result1 of outputVariable.


The input2 is optional and somecases input2 element  will not be available in the request payload.

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:sup="http://xmlns.oracle.com/Application1/SuppressSelectionFailure/SuppressSelectionFailure">
   <soapenv:Header/>
   <soapenv:Body>
      <sup:process>
         <sup:input>?</sup:input>
      </sup:process>
   </soapenv:Body>
</soapenv:Envelope>



Don't support MessageVariable in fromPart - Oracle SOA Suite 11g

Don't support MessageVariable in fromPart -  Oracle SOA Suite 11g:

This error will be thrown while invoking the service with Multipart Message type and the receive activity uses the fromPart to retrieve the parts data and assign to a variables created based on message type or invoke activity uses toPart to assign the data to parts based message type variable.




To resolve this whenever retrieving or assigning values to parts in receive/invoke activity through fromPart or toPart use the element based variables instead using the message type based variable.

window.location.href is not working while clicking on hyper link in IE

I was trying to redirect to a page while clicking on a hyper link with JQuery Ajax and java script windows.location.href

<a id="signout" href="">signOut<a/>

<script>
    $("#signout").click(function(){

                       $.ajax({
                        type : "POST",
                        async: false,
                        url : "/services/logout",                    
                        success : function() {
                                       window.location="/content/test/test.html";
 },
error : function() {
                                       window.location="/content/test/test.html";
}
});
    } );
</script>

This is working perfectly in both Firefox and Chrome but it is not working in IE.

In IE while redirecting the URL is stripped off to /content/test/(test.html got removed while performing the redirect)

The issue can be fixed as below by adding # in href attribute.

<a id="signout" href="#">signOut<a/>

Removing the Cookie is not working in IE10 and IE11

While trying to remove the cookies in IE10 and IE11 through Java, the cookies are not getting removed in the browser.

The code snippet used to remove the cookie is

Cookie[] cookies = request.getCookies();
if (cookies != null) {
for (int i = 0; i < cookies.length; i++) {
String cookieName = "SampleCookieName";
Cookie cookie = cookies[i];
if (cookieName.equals(cookie.getName())) {
cookie.setPath("/");
cookie.setMaxAge(0);
response.addCookie(cookie);
}
}
}

The root cause of  the issue is IE10 and IE11 expecting the value for the attribute Expires as 0 not for Max-Age.

Fix for the issue - Use the below code to remove the cookies

Cookie[] cookies = request.getCookies();
if (cookies != null) {
for (int i = 0; i < cookies.length; i++) {
String cookieName = "SampleCookie";
Cookie cookie = cookies[i];
if (cookieName.equals(cookie.getName())) {
StringBuilder cookieString = new StringBuilder(cookieHeaderName + "=" + "" + "; ");

cookieString.append("Expires=0" + "; ");
cookieString.append("Version=0; ");
cookieString.append("Path=/; ");
cookieString.append("Max-Age=0" + "; ");
//cookieString.append("HttpOnly");

response.addHeader("Set-Cookie", cookieString.toString());
}
}
}

Refer the following blog to set cookies in IE10 and IE11 - cookie-values-are-not-setting-in-ie10-and-ie11
