Migrate an application from Azure to Bluemix - Bluemix is an implementation of IBM's Open Cloud Architecture, leveraging Cloud Foundry to enable developers to rapidly build, deploy, and manage applications and services. Although Microsoft Azure, another popular PaaS platform, shares quite a few similarities with Cloud Foundry, several elements still need to be addressed when porting Microsoft Azure applications to IBM Bluemix.
This tutorial will take you step-by-step from creating a Node.js app on Azure and then migrating that app onto IBM Bluemix; it will also give you the key differences between Microsoft Azure and IBM Bluemix from a developer's point of view. [Read more...]

OMG, you see a lot of messages stating Broken Pipe! There is got to be something wrong, right?
Well, not necessarily...
These messages are rather usual in a TRIRIGA system served by Weblogic.
If not, there is no need to take action about those messages
If so, there are a few steps you can take to prevent performance degradation related (or even not) with those messages. Engage your DBA and ask for
AWR reports. That should give you a feel for where long-running queries or heavy page loading occurs.

No need to say this does not occur in WebSphere

So, you upgrade your version of CAD Integrator and now, when you try to login, you get an error indicating that no valid application definitions exist. Do you think "What sort of dark magic is this?" or do you think something a bit more normal like "What? But I was able to login via CAD Integrator before, why am I getting this error now?" Either way, it can be quite frustrating. Fortunately, the SMC wikis and forums can help shed some light on the issue and help get you to a point where this problem is a thing of the past.
When the 12.x release of CAD Integrator (CI) was first released, Ryan Koppelman created a Wiki on the Service Management Connect (SMC) site regarding application definitions. If you are seeing errors when you are attempting to connect via CI to your IBM TRIRIGA Application, review the information at his wiki entry via the link below.
When the 12.1.x release first came out, Martin Burch created a wiki specifically about the "No valid standard application definitions were found. Check the server environment and log." message when attempting to connect to TRIRIGA. The information at the wiki, which you can access via the link below, was for a very specific set of circumstances. Review the information at the very start of the wiki to determine if this may be the cause of the issue in your case.
Since the Application Definitions require an application component, if you only upgrade your platform and leave your application at a 10.2.x release, you would need to manually load the application definition components. Martin created the following wiki entry about how to do this via the URL shown below specifically for the CI 12.1.x releases.
Along these same lines, Martin created another wiki entry on performing the same manual import for the CI 12.0.x releases.
You might also want to post a question in the CAD Integrator forum via the link below. You will see entries in that forum from Martin as well as Ed Silky, a principle architect and developer for the IBM TRIRIGA Platform. In addition to posting questions there, you may be able to find an answer in one of the existing forum threads. There are several pages worth of entries in the IBM TRIRIGA CAD Int

For anyone who is confused as to which release of CAD Integrator is compatible with which release of the IBM TRIRIGA Platform, navigate to the URL below for a blog entry on this subject. The blog contains a compatibility table along with information on how I derived the information in that table.

As my role as a new TRIRIGA L2 support engineer grows, I can see many ways a client can help expedite the resolution by following simple best practices. Knowing where to find information and how to use it is a key factor. Let's face it, there is a lot of information out on the IBM sites not to mention the internet. Sometimes it can be overwhelming so I'd like to go through some of the tools available to our users and explain what they are.
Document Control Facility documents (DCF's) - are technotes. Sometimes they are based on a client who had a particular issue and how it was resolved. Other times they may be knowledge our team has and wants to share or clarify. The resolution could be a fix that is in a fixpack or it could be a mis-understanding of how the functionality should be used. One of the most powerful IBM support tools for finding content is our support resource pages. The link below will take you to the TRIRIGA Support Resources page where you will find the most relevant links to most of our client needs. In addition, you will find tabs at the top of that page that will take you to a TRIRIGA help page where single click buttons allow you to quickly find relevant documents to the subject you are searching. Of course you can always search using Google and much of our content that is not protected is indexed there. Content is always being added, so keep on checking.
Communities - IBM has developed these communities that people can join that relate to a particular indu
This is where you will find some of the many blogs written by people from IBM who have information to share about TRIRIGA. You have the capability to set up notifications to be daily or weekly, so you get notified of when there is something updated and you may want to read. A good idea is a weekly notification where you get a summary of what has been added during the week, so you can then scan and determine what you may or may not want to read.
In addition to blogs, one very powerful aspect of the TRIRIGA community is forums. These are monitored by people from support, development, documentation, services, other clients and more. If you have a question that falls outside the scope of support, for example, a customization question, you can ask it on the forum and you have a world of people who may be able to help you answer it.
Social Media - if you regularly inter-act with a support engineer, you might want to consider following them on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook. They might post / tweet something that will point to a blog post or a community that might be worth a read. It is yet another way to keep informed about the latest news. Depending on how often you use social media, it can be a quick way to find out about something without having to wait for your weekly notification to read about it. You might also hear about upcoming user group events this way as well.
YouTube - You can find some good how to videos if you need to know how to do some
User Groups - User Groups are a great way to meet other customers and talk about how they are using the product, especially if they are in the same industry as you. They might have found a way around some problem that you are experiencing. Plus you are able to meet IBMer's face to face and ask them questions or find out what is up and coming about the products. They can be as large as IBM's InterConnect which encompasses many software products. Or there are the smaller, regional user groups like TRIMAX which only covers TRIRIGA and Maximo products. These are a valuable way to get information. If you can, you should try to go to one.
How do all these tools help the client? It is sharing information that the client might otherwise have to enter a PMR. Depending on the complexity of an issue, a PMR requires considerable data collection and replication of issues to determine if it, in fact, works as designed, is a defect or may be user error. All these information avenues puts the client in the driver seat. They might see something they might want to consider using in the future or can avoid entering a PMR. It's all about sharing information and staying current.
