Good Habits for Consultants

I found this great link the other day about good habits for consultants.  Doing some Googling, I was able to build a quick list of posts about habits for consultants:

Log Messages in Application Engine

Here is some SQL that lists the Log Message actions in Application Programs:

[sourcecode language=”sql”]
SELECT A.AE_APPLID, A.AE_SECTION, A.AE_STEP,
M.AE_MESSAGE_PARMS, S.MESSAGE_SET_NBR, S.MESSAGE_NBR FROM
PSAESTMTDEFN A, PSAESTEPMSGDEFN M, PSAESTEPDEFN S
WHERE A.AE_APPLID = M.AE_APPLID
AND A.AE_APPLID = S.AE_APPLID
AND A.AE_SECTION = M.AE_SECTION
AND A.AE_SECTION = S.AE_SECTION
AND A.MARKET = M.MARKET
AND A.MARKET = S.MARKET
AND A.DBTYPE = M.DBTYPE
AND A.DBTYPE = S.DBTYPE
AND A.EFFDT = M.EFFDT
AND A.EFFDT = S.EFFDT
AND A.AE_STEP = M.AE_STEP
AND A.AE_STEP = S.AE_STEP
AND A.AE_STMT_TYPE = ‘M’

libclntsh error

I had an error with data mover:

[pshr@localhost ~]$ psdmtx -CT ORACLE -CD HRDMO -CO SYSADM -CP SYSADM -CI PEOPLE -CW PEOP1E -FP ~/test.dms
PeopleTools 8.49 - Data Mover

dlopen in libpscompat failed for ‘libpsora.so’: libclntsh.so.9.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
PSDMTX Error: signon
Reason: Could not sign on to database HRDMO with user SYSADM.

The fix was to create a symbolic link:

[pshr@localhost ~]$ cd /home/pshr/app/pshr/product/11.1.0/db_1/lib
[pshr@localhost lib]$ ln -s libclntsh.so libclntsh.so.9.0
