Docker containers are like magic.  You can create a wodpress instance in minutes.

Today i create a docker-compose.yml file for a WordPress inance.

Just create the file with the commands bellow and you will get a WordPress site.  You will not loose the customizations because they are saved on the host machine.

Create the folders /wp-content and wp-content/uploads  bellow the folder that contains docker-compose.yml. I test this instance only on my Mac for development.

XML external entity (XXE) security vulnerabilities in Apache FOP and Apache Batik affect IBM WebSphere Portal.

Apache FOP could allow a remote authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an XML external entity (XXE) error when processing XML data. By using a specially-crafted SVG file. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information or possibly cause a denial of service.

There are several ways to parse JSON with java.

I am working on a project with IBM Watson Conversation and Discovery and we need to creat a parser for JSON objects when we crawl an endpoint.

I found this site -> http://www.jsonschema2pojo.org/.  There you only need your JSON object or SCHEMA to genereate the classes.

The webinar was driven by a common scenario: A sysadmin is sitting at her desk minding her own business when a developer walks in and says “here’s the the new app, it’s in a Docker image. Please deploy it ASAP”. This session is designed to help provides some guidance on how sysadmins should think about managing Dockerized applications in production.

From IBM L3 support:

“WebSphere Portal does not explicitly claim support for Oracle Data Guard. It is our understanding that Oracle Data Guard is an extension
of the Oracle Database product. We do support the Oracle Database as isted in our “Supported software” documentation. Unless Oracle Data
Guard limits functionality or impacts the behavior of the Oracle Database product in an intransparent manner or requires changes to the
Portal database object definitions, we do not see a reason why WebSphere Portal would not work in that setup. In other words: If the
database system, that is used by the customer, behaves like a regular Oracle Database, it should work. In case an issue is observed, we may
have to ask the customer to reproduce that issue on a system that is mentioned explicitly in our “Supported software” document.”
