Profiling Creator's Application server

By | January 31, 2006

There were some questions about the memory consumption of the application server on the Creator Forum. That’s especially interesting when you try to develop applications which might be used by numerous clients at a time. So I decided to take all the pieces together and try it. You need: The latest release of Netbeans 5… Read More »

Where am I from?

By | January 30, 2006

          Where did I come from? I played a bit with Google Maps. And I found a nice picture of the area where I grew up.  The map to the left shows the city where I was born and the village where I spend most of my earlier fun time;-) It also shows… Read More »

Creator Applications and setup directory:-(

By | January 30, 2006

Just a word of caution: Don’t create a directory called “setup”  in the project  root.   That is a reserved directory name for NetBeans. Creator itself inherited that NB hehavior partially. So if you do create such a directory, you might end up with very strange errors when you try to build or deploy your project.… Read More »

Creator 2 Applications and Oracle OC4J – The conclusion

By | January 27, 2006

I finally found the problem.

Creator 2 Applications and Oracle OC4J – A Bit Closer

By | January 27, 2006

An update to my last posting – I found one problem;-) Apparently OC4J does employ some kind of *.TLD caching by default and that does not work with our applications which bring their taglibs with them. The error message did not help much in this case:-( The solution: Switch of the jsp-cache-tlds either globally or… Read More »

Creator 2 and Oracles OC4J:-(

By | January 25, 2006

I wanted to try some simple Creator generated applications with Oracles Application Server (OC4J) 10g. But so far, it’s a No-Go:-( I exported the application as a J2EE 1.3 compliant war file and I could deploy it. So far, everything seemed to be happy.  But when I tried to view the start page, I end… Read More »
