Change or Die

http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/94/open_change-or-die.html Kotter has hit on a crucial insight. “Behavior change happens mostly by speaking to people’s feelings,” he says. “This is true even in organizations that are very focused on analysis and quantitative measurement, even among people who think of themselves as smart in an MBA sense. In highly successful change efforts, people find ways ...

uP3 Day 6: More Layouts & GAPS

Published lots of portlets… edited lots of data.xml… really need a publishing tool. 🙂 Faizan’s been struggling all day without to much traction working on getting GAPS working – looks like some kinks between the updated PersonDirectory code and changes Dan’s been making on GAPS as the API evolves. I saw he posted last night ...

uP3 Day 5: More Person Directory & Data.xml Channel Publishing

Faizan’s PersonDirectory changes didn’t seem to take on my machine — not sure why, maybe the UserAttributesPortlet got patched, and I don’t have the most current version? I think he started looking at GAPS at home, but was running into some problems. I’m still looking at migrating our template user into the portal framework. For ...

uP3 Day 4: PersonDirectory & Portlet Publishing

Faizan got PersonDirectory working — after several updates and IRC exchanges with Eric. So uP3 now hits Rutgers LDAP to retrieve a mapping of our person attributes. Hard to test since the Portlet spec makes you explicitly declare the user attributes a portlet recieves. Probably privacy friendly, though writing a “show me all the attibutes” ...

uP3 Day 3: More Person Directory, Publishing, & CVS

Eric posted new PersonDirectory code which we updated to try to get — so we’re now running on changeset 2877, not RC1. Sometimes, CVS is just plain evil. Now performing the 3rd import. All kinds of issues with missing files due to default .cvsignore rules -I ! is your friend. Not such a productive day, ...

uP3 Day 2: Oracle & Users

Well, only got a couple of hours today to crack on uP3, but did manage to get it running on Oracle. After fixing the dbLoader thing, today it looks like everything is working (numerous restarts and cleans later). So, then went to add some users, which requires… manual SQL. Adding users required inserting rows into: ...

uP3 Day 1: Download & Install

Downloading uP3 quickstart was easy enough. Faizan exported RC1 from SVN and imported it into our CVS repository. build.properties seems not to have made it — maybe some kind of .cvsignore filter he had on Eclipse when he did the initial checkin. Tried hooking up to Oracle, ran into problems… Spent 30 min or so ...

JA-SIG Projects in Action

John Lewis from Unicon talked about open-source in Universities. Higher Ed has an extremely complex, dynamic, organizational structures. uPortal has grouping and other mechanisms which are more sophisticated than other projects, battle tested for large and sophisticated higher-ed deployments. CAS was one of the first systems, has features like Proxy Auth that no one else ...

Cornell Notification System (KEN)

Project looking to provide a super-inbox for important notifications. Using the Kuali Enterprise Notification service – again use cases look a lot like the myRutgers Alert system. Actually, sounds like the vision of our alerts combined with announcements combined with other things. avoid the overloaded email box integrated with workflow user & group addressing audit ...

OpenEAI

OpenEAI is about integration, out of U. Illinois, open source. Sample enterprise (reference model) with gateways to link applications into the bus and serices provided by the bus. Some of the functions (authoritative user accounts, finding names) sound very IDM like. The sample enterprise has a quickstart-like distribution that can run all of the services ...
