Quarter 1 of 2018 ...

I just recently completed the rollout of the famous Layer 7 CA API Gateway.

For the one about to make the decision of an API Gateway or API Management solution, let's share the good, the bad and the very ugly of this solution.

The use case drives the selection of the product and implementor, and there is no perfect solution, simply a good or great fit.

Engaging this well established software company and a reference product in the industry, many bad surprises came during the project.

Switch off your light and check if you see a difference...


So what is the result, please post it now! Thanks

Just a small collection of findings, research, wired topics, etc. Enjoy !

I list few tips to have more privacy and reduce various annoyances during web browsing, using your standard Firefox updated browser.

Tor Browser or OS like Tails are probably better choices if you are really looking for advanced anonymisation or privacy.

Here are few simple and very effective tips to improve the compliance of your Oracle databases in regards to installed and used options.

These tips cover most of the options commonly deployed. "Common" because they get installed during a standard installation (without probably one's knowledge) or used due to their known benefits by an application or by DBAs.

The "EAR Search" tool searches for text and regular expressions within a given JAVA archive file (EAR, WAR, JAR and ZIP). The tool does recursively search within included archive files.

Command syntax is very simple, similar to grep:

Syntax: java -jar EARScanner.jar [-c] [-E] [-k] [-n] fileToAnalyze searchPattern
    -c: search within comments (following java.util.Properties definition)
    -E: treat searchPattern as a regular expression
    -k: keep exploded files and directories
    -n: show line number

Here are the few Open Source projects I have been working (playing!) on in the past few years.

This NAGIOS plugin allows to remotely monitor Windows hosts in a agentless fashion.


Technically it is using the Win32 API from a Windows proxy server to the remote host. Syntax wise it mirrors NSClient++ features.
