Full certification of macOS Sierra will be completed by end of October 2016 or approximately 30 days after the general release of macOS Sierra.

IBM Client Application Access (ICAA) Feature Pack 1 due out in November 2016 will support macOS Sierra.

Working this week on a new WebSphere Portal Project.

Several content are using AngularJS and some calls to get data go to another server in another domain.

To avoid CORS we implement a reverse proxy on the IHS side.

Bellow the config of my httpd.conf.

LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/mod_proxy_connect.so
LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so
LoadModule ibm_ssl_module modules/mod_ibm_ssl.so

AngularJS web WebSphere WebSphere Portal

Textbox.io for AngularJS allows developers to leverage the capabilities of the Textbox.io WYSIWYG Rich Text Editor in forms within your AngularJS application. This provides a far more feature rich content authoring environment than a standard textarea.

“Domino applications that are created from system templates that make use of Java applets, such as the Domino Directory (names.nsf), Document Library, Domino Web Server Configuration database and Widget Catalog database, will be impacted by the removal of NPAPI functionality. The Teamroom and Discussion databases created from older (pre-8.5.3) templates will be impacted as well.
Additionally, custom Notes applications that are using Java applets also may not work correctly in web browsers due to these changes.
It is recommended that you either (1) redesign the portions of the applications that use Java applets to use HTML, or (2) redesign the entire application to leverage XPages design elements.”

I think IBM will not replace any Java applet.


To change the type of encryption using the command line, issue the following command:

idsldapmodify -p port -D  adminDN  -w  adminPW  -i  filename 

where filename contains:

dn: cn=configuration
changetype: modify
replace: ibm-slapdPWEncryption
ibm-slapdPWEncryption:  password_encryption_mechanism 

Here, the ibm-slapdPWEncryption attribute can be assigned any of the 
following values: none,aes128,aes192,aes256,crypt,sha,ssha, md5
sha224, sha256, sha384, sha512, ssha224, ssha256, ssha384, or ssha512.

To cause the updated settings to take effect dynamically, issue the following idsldapexop command:

idsldapexop -D  adminDN  -w  adminPW  -op readconfig -scope single 
        "cn=configuration" ibm-slapdPWEncryption
