Application Servers

An application server is a software framework that provides both facilities to create applications and a server environment to run them. Most application server frameworks contain a comprehensive service layer model, acting as a set of components accessible to the software developer through an API defined by the platform itself. For Web applications, these components are usually performed in the same running environment as their web server(s), and their main job is to support the construction of dynamic pages. However, many application servers target much more than just Web page generation: they implement services like clustering, fail-over, and load-balancing.

Hello, experts,

I need some recommendations to tools to install to a Linux server to track file changes. stuff that could impact systems like updates, etc.

let me know what you use. thanks in advance.

Error while publishing  report with dynamic cascade params in CR Enterprise  . Error:The server with kind rptappserver returned an error result. Failed to copy the report file to the report object. Refreshing the report object properties might have failed. Failed to read data from report file . Reason: Failed to read parameter object

Report runs OK in developer .  Also  when first published, ensured "Update Repository" box on the Save As is selected. User is added to admin group as last resort.No effect.
Also
-Verified the database

- File--> printer-->Ensured 'No Printer' is checked
Restarted RAS server and also all the servers . Since this did not fix, when to CCM and restarted Apache TOmcat & application servers.
What could be the soluction ? CR enterprise  BO 11 4.1 . BVM isn't available because its CR enterprise ?

when choosing a database for a financial application/system, what are few things to consider. I've worked with mysql, sql server and oracle, but apart from writing simple queries , I haven't dig deep into these databases. I know few differences between them , like one being free vs another. some have automatic logging and so forth.

if i were choosing to develop a financial app, is there any preferred database system to use?

We're configuring our Solaris Weblogic to send via syslog
to Qradar log collector & vendor gave us the steps below:
however, I don't see anywhere in the steps below indicating
IP of the log collector (ie syslog server) & I think some steps
are missing.  Can anyone enhance it & add on any missing
steps/inaccuracies?

1.1      WebLogic 12.1.3.0
===================
Enable configuration auditing by one of these methods:
•      Use the Administration Console. Select the Configuration > General page for your domain and set the Configuration Audit Type. See "Enable configuration auditing" in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Help.
•      When you start the Administration Server, include one of the following Java options in the weblogic.Server command:
•      -Dweblogic.domain.ConfigurationAuditType="audit"
Causes the domain to emit Audit Events only.
•      -Dweblogic.domain.ConfigurationAuditType="log"
Causes the domain to write configuration auditing messages to the Administration Server log file only.
•      -Dweblogic.domain.ConfigurationAuditType="logaudit"
Causes the domain to emit Audit Events and write configuration auditing messages to the Administration Server log file.

Weblogic / apps support colleagues face challenges in implementing all
hardening recommendations of Weblogic 12.1.3 adapted from Oracle.

Need assistance here to assess if there are alternative mitigations &
how risky if we don't implement some of it: refer to attached.

Appreciated comments on the risks of not implementing & any
mitigating factors

Within the same major version of Weblogic ie  12.1.x vs 12.2.x,
are the hardenings the same?   Have seen hardening docs from
Oracle for 11.x.y & 12.1.x  but I can't locate a doc that's for 12.2.x
so can I assume the hardening options for 12.1.x (specifically we
are on 12.1.3 & going to move to 12.2.x) are the same as for
12.2.x?

The web application in my organizations uses Apache web server that load balance across Application servers (Tomcat instance). There are two Apache (Web server) instances that route the traffic to 4 Application server instance.

The HTTPS traffic coming to the application terminates at the Web server layer, and then communication between Web server and App server is over HTTP. My assumption is that Web server and App-server communicates over HTTP and not over HTTPS.

However lately in a discussion with my IS team I came to know that Web server communication to App server over HTTP is not considered secure, and Web server should instead communicate to App server over HTTPS.

I would like to know your views on how generally this works in your organization?

Hello all
I have an application server and and a database.
The application runs a report by reading the data from the SQL DB server.
The report to be completely generated is taking around 20 mins.
We doubled the hardware  resources on both servers. But the process is still taking the same exact amount to finish.
The network utilization between the two servers is not fully utilized during the process.

1- that means the bottleneck for this is not HW over utilization.
2- what else could it be? Any ideas where to look?

hi guys

The environment I'm working in has around 150+ servers. Our team have to apply patches and keep these servers updated on a regular basis which they haven't done as yet. Now, the issue we have is that these servers are not just owned by the infrastructure and security teams, as that would be easy to manage. But the business analysts, business intelligence and applications teams own a good percentage of these too.

I need to put strategies in place so that my team, infrastructure&security, ensures that when these updates are applied that the impact is minimised and that we don't suddenly have updates which affect the applications sitting on those servers and firefighting errors.

One of my ideas was to ensure that there is a testing environment. But if I did, would I then liaise with the development teams to replicate everything that is on the production environment onto their testing too and regularly? So that when they make changes to development, they do the same onto testing?

What is the approach you have found works best?

Thanks for helping
Yash

while we have the following (refer to attached Excel for details) :
Jas service
WSO2 AM
WSO2 IS
WSO2 ESB
Front-end
Redis
RabbitMQ
Marathon
etcd

Can point me to among the better sites for hardenings of above & ideally scripts that could be readily run.

Also, whereabout can we obtain patches for the above opensource middlewares?

Dear Experts

We have application servers hosted on-premise, the servers are behind the firewall.  users who access the application server from external network have to pass though the VPN network. I am looking for the network monitoring tool and also vulnerable scanning tool for web application server. I found following New Relic network monitoring tool and Qualys Security solution but these are cloud based. Please suggest for on premise deployment and suggestions please.
Thanks in advance.

My colleague got the attached error last month back when trying
to download Sparc Solaris 10 patchset : what's the reason?

Didn't try to download the patch for Solaris x86.  Does the support
contract we have with Oracle makes any difference if it's Sparc or x86?
Or the patch is simply old & has been superseded with a new one?
