LiveCycle PDF Generator ES4 SP1 provides Quick-Fix patch to take the advantage of Microsoft Windows hotfix 2815716

Microsoft released hotfix 2815716 to resolve the issue which restricted different users running in a single session (using runas command) to print from 32 bit applications. This restriction earlier forced the users to end the Splwow64.exe process manually before using the runas command to print from a 32-bit program with different user account in a single session.

This restriction required LiveCycle PDF Generator service to terminate splwow64.exe before Microsoft Office and other native conversions could be executed (though this termination was not done in case it was known that non-availability of Splwow64.exe would not cause a failure).

To know more about this development and its impact on LiveCycle, read Sudhanshu Singh's blog post.

Configuring LiveCycle JDBC Data Sources in WebLogic for DB Failover

Jayan Kandathil

For IBM WebSphere, see here.

LiveCycle ES2′s Configuration Manager (LCM) provides you two options for configuring JDBC data sources in WebLogic:

1) Package it inside the EAR files (more secure)
2) Create it in the WebLogic Admin Console

Choice #2 provides a lot more flexibility when it comes to configuring the data sources for database failover. Runtime configuration changes such as increasing the pool size can be done without having to un-deploy and re-deploy EAR files.

To ensure that the connections in the connection pool are valid, the following additional configuration changes are necessary. This is based on an actual customer deployment against an active-passive SQL Server database cluster. You can make changes as necessary to fit your IT environment.

1) In the ‘Connection Pool‘ tab for the JDBC data source, in the ‘Advanced‘ section, ensure that the checkbox for ‘Test Connections on Reserve‘ is checked

2) Set ‘Test Frequency‘ to 10 seconds

3) Set ‘Test Table Name‘ to “DUAL” or “EDCJOBENTITY”

4) Set ‘Seconds to Trust an Idle Pool Connection‘ to 5 seconds

5) Set ‘Init SQL‘ to “SQL SELECT * FROM DUAL” or “SQL SELECT COUNT(*) FROM EDCJOBENTITY”

6) Set ‘Connection Creation Retry Frequency‘ to 12 seconds

7) Set ‘Login Delay‘ to 0 seconds

8) Set ‘Inactive Connection Timeout‘ to 0 seconds

9) Set ‘Connection Reserve Timeout‘ to 10 seconds
