    Unanswered: Apache 2.0.35

    I have Oracle 8.1.7, Enterprise Manager 2.2, Aplication manager 2.2 and Apache 2.0.35 installed. I have an application that I wish to display on the Web, but I don't know how to create the DAD (database access descriptor) When I enter http://localhost I get the default Apache web page that say all is well with the world. What I need to do is create the DAD and configure the apache congig file (httpd.conf). I don't know how to do this. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for your time and efforts.

    Cool

    It is not so clear what is your application and how is related to the software you are describing. If you post more details may be more people could help you out.

    If you already have your index.html file created which points out to your web page (application) then add into httpd.conf the following lines:

    Alias /<base_dir_for_http>/ "/<real_local_server_dir_for_web_site>/"

    <Directory "/<real_local_server_dir_for_web_site>/">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    Save the file, stop and start Apache, point your browser to:

    http://localhost/<base_dir_for_http>/ to see your web site.

    Hope that helps,

    Cool

    One more time, what is your application? How someone could tell you how to create DAD if you don't explain what you have: OAS, WebDB, or what?

    I can tell you how to do that for Oracle Portal (former WebDB):

    1. Go to the DAD page
    http://<host_name><domain_name><port>/pls/PORTAL30/admin_/dadentries.htm

    2. Click on the Edit icon of the PORTAL30_SSO entry

    3. Rename the DAD name entry PORTA30_SSO into MY_DAD_NAME

    4. Click on the OK button

    Oracle Portal creates an entry named MY_DAD_NAME.

    5. Click on the Edit icon of the MY_DAD_NAME entry

    6. Change all portal30_sso entries by my_portal_sso

    7. Click on the OK button

    Now, you are able to access to the Portal Home Page

    If you have any other app, check your installation docs how to do that or post its name, so eventually someone could help you out.

    Hope that helps,

    Good morning. Sorry about the lack of info. What I have installed is:

    Oracle Server 8.1.7
    Enterprise manager 2.2
    Oracle Application Server 2.2 ( and all applicable patches)
    Appache Webe Server 2.0.35

    Does this help? If I can get the DAD created, I'm pretty sure my site will come up. Thanks again for your time and trouble.

    OK.

    Getting a bit clear. So if I understood right, you have an application and want that application to use Oracle Application Server 2.2, right?

    I believe in this case you have to write PL/SQL or Java cartidge for your application and then to plug that cartidge into OAS. I have done this only for WebDB. Once you have the cartidge then you can follow this procedure (it is for WebDB but will give you an idea):

    Adding the WebDB Cartridge to OAS:
    ------------------------------------------

    1. In your Web browser, display the top-level administration page for Oracle Application Server. At the top of the navigational tree, you should see Website40 Site (or whatever you named the site when you installed the OAS server).

    2. Click the plus sign (+) to display the components on the site. You should see Oracle Application Server, HTTP Listeners, and Applications.

    3. Click Applications to display the applications in the right frame of the
    browser window.

    4. Click the + button in the right frame to display the Add Application dialog box.

    5. In the Add Application dialog box, specify the following:

    Field Specify
    ------------------ ----------
    Application Type CWeb
    Configure Mode Manually

    6. Click Apply. The Add Application dialog box displays again.

    7. In the dialog box, specify the following:

    Field Specify
    ------------------ ----------
    Application Name WebDB
    Display Name WebDB
    Application Version 2.2

    8. Click Apply. A Success dialog box displays.

    9. In the Success dialog box, click Add Cartridge To This Application. The Add C-Web Cartridge dialog box displays.

    10. In the Add C-Web Cartridge dialog box, specify the following:

    Field Specify
    ------------------ ----------
    Cartridge Name wdbctx
    Display Name WebDB Cartridge
    Cartridge Shared Object the full path to the wdbctx.dll file on
    Windows NT. For example:
    c:\ora4081\bin\wdbctx.dll
    Entry Point(Shared Object) wwwre_Entry
    Virtual Path /wdbctx
    Physical Path The field shows <OAS_HOME>\bin as the
    physical path. Leave this field as it is.

    11. Click Apply.

    12. Using your Web browser, display the administration page for Oracle
    Application Server. Navigate to the Web Parameters page located in the
    WebDB Configuration folder under the Applications node.

    13. On the Web Parameters page, remove any listed file extensions such as .jpeg or .gif from the Application MIME Types field. This field should be blank.

    14. Click Apply.

    15. Configure your server’s listener to update the mapping of the /images/ virtual directory to the correct physical directory on your server.

    16. Click Apply.

    17. Click Website40 Site at the top of the OAS navigational tree.

    18. Select the ALL radio button in the right frame of the browser window.

    19. Click |<< to reload the server for the new configuration to take effect.


    Testing WebDB 2.2 Cartridge Using OAS
    ----------------------------------------------

    1. Type the following URL into your Web browser’s location or address field:

    http://servernameort/wdbctx/admin_/gateway.htm

    2. On the PL/SQL Gateway Settings page, adjust the settings in fields
    contained in the Database Access Descriptor (DAD) section. You can click the small help icon on the upper right corner of the page to view
    information about fields.

    3. Click Apply.

    4. Run WebDB by typing the following URL into your Web browser’s location or address field:

    http://hostnameort/wdbctx

    Note: You will be prompted for the WebDB user and password. By default, it will be webdb/webdb.

    5. Test file uploading and downloading by typing the following URL into your Web browser’s location or address field:

    http://hostnameort/wdbctx/DAD/{schema}.wwv_testdoc.show_form

    where:

    - hostname is the name of the server on which you installed
    WebDB
    - port is the port you specified during installation of WebDB
    - DAD is the Database Access Descriptor name (default: WebDB)
    - schema is the schema WebDB is installed in (default: webdb)

    Hope that helps,
