Hello XML Gurus,

Does anyone know if there is a tool or utility out in the XPath world that can generate basic XPath expressions for all the possible paths described by an XML Schema? Essentially the tool would output the possible paths (within reason) down the tree (from the root is necessary). The closest I could find was the XPath Explorer (Eclipse plugin/app) but it generates path expressions from an XML document and is good for experimenting with XPath expressions but doesn't specifically work with schemas.

Anyone know of such a tool or feature in a tool?

Thanks in advance,

Alan
Hey BJ, it is funny. Now that I think about it I think I've seen your name on the ranch before a few years back actually. I haven't been back to the ranch in a while. Thanks for your input as always.

Hello All,

Does anyone know where I can get a compatibility list or matrix for Web Browsers supported by IBM HTTP Server 2.0.47.1?

If not, then can I assume that browser support would be dictated mainly by the support of the browser for the version of HTTP IBM HTTP Server 2.0.47.1 is running?

Any advice is appreciated in advance.

Thanks,

Hello All,

My client is looking for a design which includes providing failover for the deployment manager. How do other companies handle this? I hear little talk about this subject and would like to know if anyone has had experience with such a set up?

I understand the deployment manager is not critical part of the WebSphere application doman as a whole and can even be turned down if not being utilized. And there are ways of administering to the application servers using wsadmin and the WAS shell scripts to, but the client is looking at options for providing failover.

We've proposed a solution whereby the config information for the deployment manager is stored in a Shared Storage location. The config is shared by 2 installations of deployment managers. One deployment manage is running at any given time. If one manager goes down, the other is brought up manually to take over.

The Primary DMGR is assigned a dedicated IP. Failover involves stopping the primary DMGR and unmounting the deployment manage profile partition. Then activate the IP on the secondary deployment manager and mount the profile partition. Then start the secondary deploymnet manager up.

In theory this should work, but I need to know what the standard practice is. Or whether anyone has attemped what I'm proposing and can give advice or opinions.

Much thanks,
