  • Ignore STOP-AFTER when stepping in the debugger

    If a STOP-AFTER phrase is in effect, the STOP condition is raised when the time-out is reached while stepping with the debugger. This leads to difficulty in identifying where the problem is. For starters, the code initially seems to "crash"...
  • Samples for OE REST Adapter Security and Authentication

    Instead of having a truckload of pdf's on REST (Web applications, security, eclipse tools, ...) I would really appreciate some simple helloworld examples on how to set up security, especially when AppServer needs to deal with Security instead of the...
