Another J2ee Framework and Another AJAX Toolkit

I came across yet another J2EE framework this week. Open SubSystems and another AJAX toolkit. ThinWire they cleverly also put a page about the differences between Thin Wire and the Google Widget Toolkit. The interesting thing is that with ThinWire you have access to the Full Java API not just the ones available through the Google Widget Toolkit.

The only problem with all of these frameworks and toolkits is which one to choose.

Locked out of your WAS ?

Somehow I managed to lock myself out of my WAS server during configuration of Domino LDAP - doh! I'd turned on Global Security with the wrong credentials for the LDAP server. After much Googling I finally found the nugget of information to allow me to disable Global Security without the server running.

Want to know what it is ?

WAS_ROOT\bin\wsadmin -conntype NONE


and then wsadmin>quit

It was in a document called "Common Mistakes for Enabling Security" hidden away in the IBM website.

I've been tagged...

By Carl. So here are five things that you don't know about me.

  1. My first computer was a Sinclair ZX80. I spent a lot of time typing in programs from magazines that never actually worked.
  2. My first car was a Mini Metro Van, which cost me the princely sum of 325 English pounds. I repaired the rust and eventually upgraded the engine from a standard 998cc to a 'tuned' 1398cc with a really LOUD exhaust. It served me well all through University. I had to get a sensible car when I started work, so it got dismantled and the engine is still in the back of my folks garage!
  3. My nickname in University was Sheepy as I was from Wales - great imagination from one of my classmates! If you didn't know the Welsh are rumoured to like sheep - alot!
  4. I once went to a fancy dress party dressed as one fifth of the Village People, my three other house mates and a good friend were the other four. I was the biker guy. We even went to the local pub dressed in full regalia.
  5. I once tried out for a part time job as a barman, but my mental arithmetic was so bad that I only lasted one night.

I suppose I should nominate 5 people. Gareth Cook, Micheal Rice, Simon Hampel and Cali Clarke, if they've not been tagged already.
