Navigate the following by starting at OracleContextn and working you way down to PORTAL you will get the password to the Oracle Database used by the portal. Using Oracle SQL-developer you can used the JDBC connection string to connect and view the database.
OrclResourceName=PORTAL,orclReferenceName=YourDomain.YourDatabase,cn=IAS Infrastructure Databases,cn=IAS,cn=Products,cn=OracleContext
ldapsearch -h -p -D “cn=orcladmin” -w -b “cn=IAS Infrastructure Database,cn=IAS,cn=Products,cn=OracleContext” -s sub “orclresourcename=PORTAL” rclpasswordattribute
I stumbled upon http://www.hostip.info/dl/index.html…it has a free API or you can download the entire database as a sql script. Very nice if you plan to do Geo targeting. It can even go down to a city level on certain ip’s.
As i was catching up on Scotts Gu’s blog. i came across this posting http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2008/11/24/new-asp-net-charting-control-lt-asp-chart-runat-quot-server-quot-gt.aspx about the new charting control in asp.net. And i thought to myself….finally. With ASP.net mvc going 1.0 and Silverlight3.0 beta announced this probably got very little attention.
