Today morning, I received this note from one of my colleague. Very good one!
At 10 minutes to seven on a dark cool evening in Mexico City in 1968 John Stephen Akwari of Tanzania painfully hobbled into the Olympic Stadium -- the last man to finish the marathon .The winner had already been crowned, and the victory ceremony was long finished. So the stadium was almost empty as Akwari --alone, his leg bloody and bandaged--struggled to circle the track to the finish line.
The respected journalist Bud Greenspan watched from a distance. Then, intrigued, Bud walked over to Akwari and asked why he had continued the grueling struggle to the finish line. The young man from Tanzania answered softly, "My country did not send me 9,000 miles to start the race. They sent me 9,000 miles to finish the race".
Attitude should be commitment to finish a task through to the end.
Couple of days back, I got a query from my customer on how to re-configure BPC in WPS (v6.1.2). The reason to do is at the time of profile creation the embedded derby database was used for the BPEDB. As its not a scalable DB, we had to point to another DB, Oracle in this case. Though this won't be a regular scenario, thought it would be helpful to point the same here. Even this might be useful when there is a change in DB vendor in your location and want to migrate to a new DB. Here are the steps:
First you need to stop and undeploy all your business process and human task applications.
Then run this nice bpeunconfig.jacl under (WPS_install_dir)\ProcessChoreographer\config. More on the same in WPS infocenter.
After successful running of the script (which undeploys the BPC related apps and resources), re-start the server and BPC is now available for new/fresh configuration.
