When I try the following http debug parameters in opmn for my oc4j instance I get no logs after restarting instance:

http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B32110_01/web.1013/b28950/sysprops.htm#CHDBDBII

This is because the logging level has not been set. So I now add "oracle.oc4j.trace.finest=com.evermind.server.http" and restart the instance and then I see the logging.

I am trying to increase the Xmx value to 1500M on JDev. However when I do so, I get the "Error occurred during initialization of VM Could not reserve enough space for object heap" error. I am on Windows XP and have 4GB of RAM. And have plenty of available RAM.

Sun JDK needs a contiguous address space to allocate memory.
On the other hand, JRockit does not need a contiguous address space.

So, if I use JRockit as JDK, and then run JDeveloper with -Xmx1500M it works.

Returning values from Nested Tables using JDBC

Posted by Steve Racanovic | Posted in | Posted on 1:25 PM

0

When running a select statement in sqlplus on a nested tables we get the results returned. However the same can not be said when running the same statement through JDBC. He is an example of returning values from a nested table with JDBC.

1. Here's how the sql script looks like to create the type and tables.


drop table person;
drop type nested_addresses;
drop type address;

create or replace type address as object(
street varchar2(50),
city varchar2(20),
postcode varchar2(8),
state varchar(8))
/

create or replace type nested_addresses as table of address
/

create table person (
firstname varchar(20),
lastname varchar(20),
address_list nested_addresses
) nested table address_list store as person_addresses
/

insert into person values ('Fred','Flinstone', nested_addresses(address('345 Cave Stone Road', 'Bedrock', 'BR345','BR'),address('1313 Cobblestone Way', 'Bedville', 'BV1313','BV')))
/

commit
/

2. If I now run the select statement we can see the results:

scott@orcl> set head on feedback on
scott@orcl> set pages 999
scott@orcl> set linesize 120
scott@orcl> col firsname format a20
scott@orcl> col lastname format a20
scott@orcl> col address_list format a50
scott@orcl> select firstname, lastname, address_list from person;

FIRSTNAME LASTNAME ADDRESS_LIST(STREET, CITY, POSTCODE, STATE)
-------------------- -------------------- --------------------------------------------------
Fred Flinstone NESTED_ADDRESSES(ADDRESS('345 Cave Stone Road', 'B
edrock', 'BR345', 'BR'), ADDRESS('1313 Cobblestone
Way', 'Bedville', 'BV1313', 'BV'))


1 row selected.


3. However if I now run the same select query, through a java client using JDBC we will get null values returned.

import java.sql.*;

public class Person {
public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException, ClassNotFoundException {

// connection parameters
String dbUrl = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@sracanov-au2.au.oracle.com:1522:orcl";
String dbUser = "scott";
String dbPass = "tiger";

// load the driver
Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");

// create connection
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(dbUrl, dbUser, dbPass);

// query the table
Statement s = con.createStatement();
String query = "select firstname, lastname, address_list from person";
ResultSet res = s.executeQuery(query);

// look at the result set
res.next();
System.out.println("First Name: " + res.getString(1));
System.out.println("Last Name: " + res.getString(2));
System.out.println("Address: " + res.getString(3));

// close connection
con.close();
}
}

[sracanov@sracanov-au C]$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_16"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

[sracanov@sracanov-au C]$ javac -cp .;"D:\My Contents\My Software\Oracle\JDBC\Drivers\11.2.0.1.0\ojdbc6.jar" Person.java

[sracanov@sracanov-au C]$ java -cp .;"D:\My Contents\My Software\Oracle\JDBC\Drivers\11.2.0.1.0\ojdbc6.jar" Person
First Name: Fred
Last Name: Flinstone
Address: null


This is because we need to get a collection of objects and handle them in java by returning arrays elements. The correct way to return this is:


import java.sql.*;

public class Person1 {
public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException,
ClassNotFoundException {

// connection parameters
String dbUrl = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@sracanov-au2.au.oracle.com:1522:orcl";
String dbUser = "scott";
String dbPass = "tiger";

// load the driver
Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");

// create connection
Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(dbUrl, dbUser, dbPass);

// query the table
Statement s = con.createStatement();
String query = "select firstname, lastname, address_list from person";
ResultSet res = s.executeQuery(query);

// look at the result set
while (res.next()) {
int addresscounter=1;
System.out.println("First Name: " + res.getString(1));
System.out.println("Last Name: " + res.getString(2));
Array array = res.getArray(3);
Object[] address_list = (Object[]) array.getArray();
for (int i = 0; i < address_list.length; i++) {
Struct address = (Struct) address_list[i];
Object[] attrib = address.getAttributes();
for (int j = 0; j < attrib.length; j++) {
System.out.println("Address " + addresscounter + ": " + attrib[j]);
}
addresscounter++;
}
}

// close connection
con.close();
}
}

[sracanov@sracanov-au C]$ javac -cp .;"D:\My Contents\My Software\Oracle\JDBC\Drivers\11.2.0.1.0\ojdbc6.jar" Person1.java

[sracanov@sracanov-au C]$ java -cp .;"D:\My Contents\My Software\Oracle\JDBC\Drivers\11.2.0.1.0\ojdbc6.jar" Person1

Created a simple example of how you can isolate and trace the bind variables for the records inserted and understand what to look for in the trace file.

The table here consists of 3 columns. A varchar2, number and timestamp.

The jdev 11113 workspace for this example is here.

When running the application, this following results are displayed:

Here you can see the first insert query references "CURSOR #8" that will bind to "BINDS #8:" which shows the binding values:

value=0
value=

Timestamp is in hex format. You will to convert that yourself to find the value.

Note for myself to create a simple custom ADF login page with jspx.

Create a new workspace by following the example shown here:

http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/11/cuecards111/adf_set_29/ccset29_ALL.html

Once completing this, then go through the follow link http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E15523_01/web.1111/b31974/adding_security.htm#BABDEICH to create the custom jspx page and backing bean to login into the application.

The finished login will look something like this.

Using Oracle 11.2g Data Encryption and Integrity Connection Pool in OAS10g

Posted by Steve Racanovic | Posted in , | Posted on 12:03 PM

I haven't had the chance to write something for a while now. I was recently working on new feature with oracle advanced security data encryption and integrity using a JDBC connection pool. So I'll write my steps up of how I went about configuring this in OAS 10g.

This setup allows for data encryption and integrity without the overhead of SSL.

I used the following products to configure the steps detailed here:

* Oracle Application Server 10.1.3.2.0
* JDev 10.1.3.4.0
* JDBC 11.2.0.1.0
* Oracle Database 11.2


I am referencing these documentation for further details:

Oracle® Database Advanced Security Administrator's Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2)
Configuring Network Data Encryption and Integrity for Oracle Servers and Clients
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/network.112/e10746/asoconfg.htm#insertedID0

Oracle® Database JDBC Developer's Guide, 11g Release 2 (11.2)
Support for Data Encryption and Integrity
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/java.112/e10589/clntsec.htm#EHAFHEIG

Here are my complete steps:

1. First follow the steps to configure the database: - http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/network.112/e10746/asoconfg.htm#i1006517

Depending on your selection, your 'sqlnet.ora' file should look something like this when finished:

# sqlnet.ora Network Configuration File: /home/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/network/admin/sqlnet.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

SQLNET.CRYPTO_CHECKSUM_TYPES_SERVER= (MD5)

SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_SERVER = required

NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT)

SQLNET.CRYPTO_SEED = 'example123456'

SQLNET.ENCRYPTION_TYPES_SERVER= (RC4_256)

ADR_BASE = /home/u01/app/oracle

SQLNET.CRYPTO_CHECKSUM_SERVER = required
Once the steps have been completed, restart the listener and wait for the service to come back up.

2. Download JDBC driver 11.2.0.1.0. You can get the driver from here. http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/java/sqlj_jdbc/index.html
Since OAS comes with JDK 1.5_06 by default, I'll used the 'ojdbc5.jar'.

3. In My Oracle Support, review document 420303.1 - How to Use The Latest Thin JDBC Driver Across All Applications For a 10.1.3.x OAS Container

Based on that document, here are the steps how I upgraded the driver and verified it updated correctly:

4. I created a new instance called JDBC112010

> createinstance -instanceName JDBC112010

5. I started the new instance and checked to make sure it was up.

> opmnctl startproc process-type=JDBC112010
opmnctl: starting opmn managed processes...

> opmnctl status

Processes in Instance: web.sracanov-au.au.oracle.com
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
ias-component | process-type | pid | status
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
OC4JGroup:default_group | OC4J:JDBC112010 | 5124 | Alive
...

6. I then deploy the following application 'drvtest.ear'

7. I accessed and ran the application from URL - 'http://<server>:<port>/drvtest/dbdetails.jsp'

I completed my database details and clicked on the 'Submit' button.


The current JDBC details are displayed:

=============
JDBC Driver Name is ........ Oracle JDBC driver
JDBC Driver Version is ..... 10.1.0.5.0
JDBC Driver Major Version is 10
JDBC Driver Minor Version is 1
=============

8. I then continued to followed Doc ID 420303.1 to upgrade the JDBC Driver.

In point 7 of the document, I entered

Shared Library Name : oracle.jdbc
Shared Library Version : 11.2.0.1.0


NOTE: The name must be 'oracle.jdbc'

9. In point 15 of the document, I first created a backup of 'system-applications.xml'. I then entered



NOTE: The name must be 'oracle.jdbc'. The version details must match version enter in step 8.

10. After restarting the instance, I then accessed the test application again. 'http://<server>:<port>/drvtest/dbdetails.jsp'

I completed my database details and clicked on the 'Submit' button.

This is the results I received

=============
JDBC Driver Name is ........ Oracle JDBC driver
JDBC Driver Version is ..... 11.2.0.1.0
JDBC Driver Major Version is 11
JDBC Driver Minor Version is 2
=============



I can now see and confirm the JDBC Driver upgrade worked successfully.

11. Then created the datasource. You can do this following document 456270.1 - Creating a datasource in Application Server Control (ASC)/Enterprise Manager (EM) for 10.1.3.X

Here is how my connection pool looks like in 'data-sources.xml':











NOTE: You must use a managed datasource with oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver factory class. Can not use native data source. The pool properties there do not implement the encryption properties from oracle.jdbc.OracleConnection interface.

The XXX_TYPES should match the setting as configure in the database. Step 1


12. Download and deploy this application EAR file 'drvtest2.ear' which you will then connect to this connection pool.



Access the URL 'http://<server>:<port>/drvtest2/dbdetails.jsp' and enter the JNDI of the pool and click 'Submit'.



Your results should look something like:

System Information

JDK Details

=============
JDK Vendor is ... Sun Microsystems Inc.
JDK Version is ... 1.5.0_06
=============

JDBC Driver Details

=============
JDBC Driver Name is ........ Oracle JDBC driver
JDBC Driver Version is ..... 11.2.0.1.0
JDBC Driver Major Version is 11
JDBC Driver Minor Version is 2
=============

Database Details

=============
Database Product Name is ... Oracle
Database Product Version is Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options

Secure Algorithm Details

=============
Encryption algorithm is: RC4_256
Data Integrity algorithm is: MD5




Now I can see the encryption & data integrity algorithm used in this connection. You can further download a tool like wireshark - http://www.wireshark.org/ and run it on the application server to monitor this connection pool and confirm the message are encrypted and unreadable.
