1. Java code
In Maximo java classes we don't always use the right method to get the unique id value: it always has to be getLong("<uniqid>") .
In the recent code you may find getInt (mostly), getDouble, or even getString to get the unique id value, which can lead to run time errors (and PMRs) in the future (we already fixed (and hotfixed) many issues happening because of that).
Sometime in MAXATTRIBUTE table we don't have sameas definition... [More]

One of the things that I... [More]

Hi there, I decided to check in and throw my 2 cents out there on a topic that I think a lot of people might benefit from and that's using Escalations in Maximo.
The Escalations application first came onto the Maximo scene with version 6 and has developed
into a powerful and extremely useful tool that can help to solve many problems.

The tree control found in IBM Asset Configuration Manager (ACM) used to display hierarchical data has changed as of version 7.5. The new control is far less flexible than it used to be. Why?
Please allow me to share some lessons learned with fellow developers and application designers. For many years (I fell in love with programming in 1979), the buzzwords "flexible" and "reusable" been heavily emphasized when it comes to program code and the development of components such as the ACM tree control. The version... [More]
