IBM Connections – WAS Plugin issue

If you get an HTTP 404 Error in a browser, after trying to access an IBM Connections Application and errors like

“File does not exist: E:/IBM/HTTPServer/htdocs/profiles”

start popping out in “error.log” file of the IBM HTTP Server, then most probably there is an issue with WAS Plugin.

I had this error just after the Installation of IBM Connections and the reason was the incorrect value of “WebSpherePluginConfig” variable, which contains the path to the “plugin-cfg.xml” file in the HTTP Server configuration. After the value was corrected and a correct path was supplied, IBM Connections could be accessed without any issue.

Travelog, on the Path to Pink!

Today I attended an IBM Webcast, translated to English “Path to Pink”, it was held by Martti Garden and Matthias Schneider. Personally, I found it exciting and very informative. The IBM is keeping their promise and continuously delivers new Connections “Pink” parts.

I will skip the talk about technology and components on top of which Pink is being built, as well as the reasons why this is done, I am sure most are familiar with this part.

After a brief introduction with OrientMe, Connections Customizer and “Pink Metrics”, all these components are already delivered as a part of the pink package. We got a bit of insights what is coming next and a demo of some components which are not published yet.

For example, IBM Docs is coming as a Container, I personally liked the Docs Editor, which can be used in Files, Blogs and Wikis. It has a powerful export feature, which lets you export a blog to a wiki article.

“Pink Profiles” also extends the functionality of the Profiles application, many customers will like this, as it brings some highly practical functionality which was desired by many.

“Pink Middleware” will be delivered to allow new plugins and applications to be integrated in the Pink package easier.

“Pink Note”, “Connectron Client” (was also demonstrated) and “Pink Content” were just some of many terms mentioned.

For sure, these are very fun and excitement times to work with IBM Connections. I like the path were Connections is developing and the effort put by the IBM to develop the workplace of the future.

Orient Me 6.0.0.2 is Available for Download

Orient Me 6.0.0.2 is available for Download from the Fix Central.

The Update solves Docker 17.06 CE incompatibility issue, this is the only fix and there are no new features delivered with this update. If you already have Orient Me 6.0.0.1 with Docker 17.03 installed, then there is no need to update to 6.0.0.2 version. If you want to install Orient Me from scratch, then you should use the newest version.
