Hi Ranchers

May one of You have some experience about what Managed File Transfer system(MFT) to choose in accordance to JAVA programming

Best regards

Hi Ulf !

What do You mean by

"How would not running in an app server improve security? "
Hi Chris !

During the last 15 years a lot Projects has been concentraed on getting programs out of legacy systems to application serves like OAS, WAS etc.

So I ask if time now has come to re-engineer in the opposit direction ?

One good reason could for example be to improve the security.
Hi Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak,and Michael Remijan !

I have considered developing my own Java package that can integrate to different Application Servers on different operating systems, such as Java , . Net and also as far as z-OS.
I had imagined that it would be by combining traditional EJB 3.0 technology with the Spring framework.

I hope you have some good advice for me?
Hi Coderanchers !

regarding: IBM-RAD-9: Can't "quick fix" from my "Software analyze" perspective

I have succeeded in generating code review report both PDF and XML’s

So for so good !

But I have not yet succeeded in making a quick fix all from my Software analyzer perspective !
The action point Quick fix all is greyed-out and therefore disabled for generating quick fixes (

Best regards

Hello to All of You !

Issues brought up through this discussion are rather essential for me, and have been so for quite a while.

As an example :

How can you as legal authority identify a person by a name, address etc, if you meanwhile have to transpose between different character formats ?
Formats like Win 1251, EBCDIC, ASCII, Latin, Unikode . You really have to be strictly and sure about the scope of transposition

For the time being I'm going to make a draft describing how to convert from Unikode to Latin and vice versa.

I would grateful if You some links or hints that could help me about the work above.

Hi All !

Thank you very much !

Your information are most usefull.

Hello !

"I'm searching for some best practices, documents links etc. concerning this topic !"

Nor do I like the use of @suppresswarnings.
But of course - there might be special cases where it can be helpfull.

I've run through a lot of Enterprise code from external consultants where approximately 30%
of the java files uses @suppresswarnings.

I think it's too much !!

Hello !

I would like to get som information about testing Java-security and especially Rolemappers , SAMTokens etc. with unit tests.

Do You by chance know anything about It ?

Is it possible to implement SAML tokens when using Spring 3

Hi !

You have several ways to detect errors.
The logfile systemout.log is probably the most common for the WAS
(WebSphere Application Server)

Look for MQJMS**** exceptions

Normally You will start to have connection problems: wrong Quemanger, Quename
etc. MQ reasen code like: 2005 2058 2008

Thank You very much William !

I look forward to read about it tomorrow.

Hello William !

In any case I bet the limiting factor will be the speed at which the MQ server accepts messages.

Tomorrow I will give You an answer because I've already created and Integration-tested that part. I just have to make a test file which generate and write 2*10E5 dummy-messages to an input queue.

About the implementation: The only thing I can be sure about is that the
XML is in a proper format. Therefore it is too risky to let it be line dependent.

I concider a XMLreader and XMLwriter combined with an iterator will do
the job.

Anyway I just have to try - even the ultimate code with less than 15 line
would be nice. There must an XML API having a String like method that simply grabs the whole content of an XML-element including the child elements. ;)

Thank You for the suggestions.

Regarding: Where in the world are these 200,000 files going?

William Brogden - These files are putted to a MQ queue i slices because
our MQ-system i not allowed having messages in the size about half a Giga-byte

I have done it with SAX and "Streaming a large HTTP file" about four years ago, but this time i has to be in a more "generic"(I hate that word) fashion

Have a nice day or evening to all of You
Hello !

I have a XML document containing 200.000 elements.
Those elements should be placed respectively into 200.000 new XML files.

I would appreciate to hear from You about this problem

NB! No validation is needed.

The input should be streamed

- So far my own suggestion concerns about SAX2 - DOM2 - XPATH - XSLT or even just using som of the Java STRING metods.

Thanks in advance
