Opatch WLS 12c

Backup Oracle Home:
It is highly recommended that you back up the Oracle home before any patch operation. You can back up the Oracle home using your preferred method. You can use any method such as zip, cp -r, tar, and cpio to compress the Oracle home.

Opatch path:

List patches:
./opatch lsinventory
./opatch lsinventory -detail

Check if it's feasible:
./opatch apply /Users/German/tmp/patches/23639929 -report

Apply patch:
./opatch apply /Users/German/tmp/patches/23639929

Rollback patch
./opatch rollback -id 23639929

Too many open files

The following problem may occurr in WLS:

Caused By: java.net.SocketException: Too many open files
  at java.net.Socket.createImpl(Socket.java:447)
  at java.net.Socket.connect(Socket.java:577)
  at oracle.net.nt.TcpNTAdapter.connect(TcpNTAdapter.java:161)
  at oracle.net.nt.ConnOption.connect(ConnOption.java:159)
  at oracle.net.nt.ConnStrategy.execute(ConnStrategy.java:428)
  at oracle.net.resolver.AddrResolution.resolveAndExecute(AddrResolution.java:506)
  at oracle.net.ns.NSProtocol.establishConnection(NSProtocol.java:595)
  at oracle.net.ns.NSProtocol.connect(NSProtocol.java:230)

This is a common issue when  File Descriptors are not enough for the OS processes.

Checcking the most open FD appear WLS Managed Servers and they are almost on the limit:

4076 376 /u04/Middleware/WLS12c/jdk/bin/java-server-Xms1024m-Xmx2048m-XX:PermSize=256m-XX:MaxPermSize=512m-Dweblogic.Name=WLS02

4063 32526 /u04/Middleware/WLS12c/jdk/bin/java-server-Xms1024m-Xmx2048m-XX:PermSize=256m-XX:MaxPermSize=512m-Dweblogic.Name=WLS01

Checking with lsof we see a lot of open jar files from war files, because we have several war files deployed.


$ ulimit -n

Therefore the solution is to set a bigger soft&hard limit.

How to know OHS version

$ ./httpd.worker -v
./httpd.worker: error while loading shared libraries: libexpat.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

$ ps -fea | grep httpd

$ export ORACLE_HOME=/u04/Middleware/P_OHS12c/product

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/u04/Middleware/P_OHS12c/product/lib

$ cd /u04/Middleware/P_OHS12c/product/wlserver/../ohs/bin/

$ ./httpd.worker -v
Server version: Oracle-HTTP-Server/2.2.22 (Unix)
Server built:   Sep  3 2015 01:14:57
Server label:   APACHE_12.

Sed cheat sheet

Sometimes we need to clean-up a file (ie: log prod file)

sed -i.bak '/<ConnectionEnv.cleanup, jconn=oracle.jdbc.driver.T4CConnection/d' ./infile

Inputless WLS Credentials

Awkwardly WLS develoment version does not show credentials input when booting.
Of course, the solution is to create security/boot.properties.
however if I don't press [enter] then it waits forever :S

Probably there is a patch for this, but dev version

Software Architect Skills/Responsabilities

There are several list of required skills/responsabilities a Software Architect should have.
One of these (a little old now, but still valid) is:


  1.     Knowledge of relevant technologies
  2.     Strong analysis & design skills
  3.     Coding & POCs
  4.     Architecture & design activities
  5.     Modeling language/Tools
  6.     Architectural frameworks/Tools
  7.     Communication
  8.     Training/Mentoring
  9.     Sales/Pre-sales
  10.     Presentation Skills

PD: as usual, I'll be updating this Post as I find new resources or my own ideas...

Java Muxer WLS

Go to Environment > Servers > your_Server > Tuning, under Advanced, set the Muxer Class based on your OS and reboot the server.

Catastrophic Regexp (again)
