Run Forrest Run!

“Run Forrest Run” – do you remember that scene from the movie Forrest Gump? Well, that seems to be the trend nowadays with government agencies running away from costly entreprise solutions towards more open source software because it is, well, free.  Luckily, Forrest Gump unshackles himself from his polio braces and breaks free; and so so

Some stocking stuffers for your Publisher deployment

Some stocking stuffers for your Publisher deployment

Recently we found a client’s aging Publisher deployment started becoming forgetful. Well maybe not so much forgetful, but exhibiting the advanced symptoms of dementia! We were finding that free memory in their deployment was consistently finding itself hovering at about 1% of total memory. This fact lead us to continually bump up the maximum memory

Publisher is up but it’s sort of down.

󰀄

An instance of Publisher that I had a chance to touch recently went down with a puzzling exception and unknown cause. What better way to liven up the day of your friendly neighborhood portal than a vague and somewhat unexplained service error for a component of your deployment that has not given you any trouble

Thawing a Frozen Publisher Explorer

󰀄

Recently a client came to me with a problem where Publisher Explorer was freezing up on them while they were attempting to edit a particular content item. The first thing that we tried was to copy the content item to see if the copy was still behaving badly. It was and  the copy of the

A different view of an Analytics portlet

󰀄

We recently had a client that needed a portlet that showed the top visited pages in a community and its sub communities. That was easily implemented by creating a portlet based on the Analytics Traffic Webservice. However as we already know the default Analytics reports look rather clumsy. An example screen shot might be as

An Early Christmas Present: Free code to list Published Content Links

Howdy all, hope this note finds you well and recovering from Turkey overload. Warning: This is a pretty specific discussion of a pretty specific situation that occurs when you’re moving a bunch of stuff around in Publisher.  If you’re not interested in Publisher and it’s idiosyncrasies,  you should save your time and skip this post. Anyhow,

Javascript ‘Access is Denied’ Error When Using Publisher RichText Editor

󰀄

There’s no better way to express my creative side than building colorful announcements and news articles with the ALI Publisher Rich Text Editor. Aqua text with burgundy background and cool animated gifs are all I need to create eye-popping, nausea-inducing, kaleidoscopes of information. But ALAS, one of my trusted clients could not share in this excitement

Import Content into Publisher

󰀄

These are exciting times with Aqualogic (ALI) and its direction as a Portal technology after Oracle’s acquisition of BEA Systems.  Some of our ALI clients have decided to migrate off ALI’s Content Management System (CMS), Publisher, and adopt a different platform; e.g. Adobe Contribute. While others are embracing the new Portal CMS Web Center Interaction

Publisher 6.5 – Workaround for Broken Upgrades

󰀄

Ruh, roh.  This one’s a doozy.  Yeah, I’m pretty high on Publisher 6.5, especially the feature where Publisher no longer issues a redirect for published content, greatly improving performance because it allows the portal to cache all this content. Unfortunately, I just ran into a major problem with this feature in a dev upgrade: the

Aqualogic Interoperability Matrix

󰀄

I mentioned the ALI Interoperability Matrix (login required) in the Publisher 6.5 post, and realized that I don’t always go to the official site to check compatible versions of the Aqualogic stack; instead I just use a locally saved copy because it’s quicker to pull up.  Obviously, the locally saved snapshot can get out of
