Select for update, nowait, skip locked

Wed, 2012-03-28 13:20

Our DB Adapter uses Skip locking to enable distributed polling - one of the ways to scale up your inbound db processing. I thought I would illustrate at a very high level how select for updates in general, and skip locking work.

Easy Automation of common Weblogic and FMW Administration commands via WLST Recording

Fri, 2011-12-02 14:27

The WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) is a command-line scripting environmentthat you can use to create, manage, and monitor WebLogic Server domains. Weblogic Serverprovides you a way to record your configuration edits in the WLS Console asWLST scripts that can then later be edited and used for configurationautomation. Note that for security reasons, it does not allow you to record allcommands. Refer to the WeblogicServer documentation for what is disallowed.

Here is a simple run through of how you can use WLST recording and generate scripts for config automation.In this example, we will record the creation of a simple JDBC resource via WLSConsole and edit it post-recording.

Step 1: Log intoWLS Admin Console and click on “Preferences” at the top and click on the “WLSTScript Recording” tab.

This page gives you details on where the script will be generated post recording, and the name of the file. You can change it to suite your needs.

Step 2: Click on “StartRecording” and then proceed to create the data source as shown in the stepslater. This is under the assumption that Automatic Recording is turned off. Inthis case, you can start and stop recording when you have finished atomicrecording tasks. Once you start recording, you can see a message indicatingthat the recording is on.


Step 4:Once youhave completed the configuration, you can click on “Preferences” at the top tocome back to the Recording settings page and stop the recording. You can seethat the recording window has captured all configuration changes in Jythonformat.

Step 5: Click on “Stoprecording” to generate the file at the desired location.



Step 6: Next, youcan update the script to pass them as command line arguments or read them from aproperty file. See below.

Step 7: WLST canbe run in a variety of ways. One way is to set the environment using wlserver_10.3/server/bin/setWLSEnv.shand then running

java Weblogic.WLST scriptName.py.

Refer to the WLSTdocumention for other means to execute WLST [Interactive, Embedded, Antetc].
