JBO-29000 Excpetion

Users tried to log on to the development instance an after logging on they get the really helpful message:
You have encountered an unexpected error. Please contact your System Administrator for assistance.

Digging into the exception log I found this:
JBO-29000: Unexpected exception caught: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError, msg=Could not initialize class oracle.apps.fnd.functionSecurity.User;

So I ran autoconfig after seeing a few things about mx paramter in the $CONTECT_FILE. I then started the services again and everything was working fine.Hope this helps anyone who might be scratching their heads about this.

Session Killer

I've been noticing lately that the database does not seem to be cleaning up after itself and the processes just keep climbing and climbing. Some sessions are more than two weeks old. I thought this was a bit weird and when our monitoring system started alerting to the number of sessions I realised there was a lot of dead session that are inactive but not being cleaned up. This is probably due to pooling and the way the DB is trying to save resources but in the EBS once a user closes a form they will not be using that session again. This sql give me the code to kill the session both in the DB as well as on the server itself:

select vp.SPID,vs.username, UPPER(vs.program) program, logon_time,         floor(vs.last_call_et / 60 ) min_inactive        ,floor(vs.last_call_et / 60 /60 ) hr_inactive, vs.status, vs.status        ,'alter system kill session '''||vs.sid||','||vs.serial#||''';'        ,'kill -9 '||vp.SPID from v$session vs, v$pro…

Failed to initialize the application 'EBSDataSource' due to error weblogic.application.ModuleException after FNDCPASS apps change

adrci Tool

I found this neat little tool for digging into the alert log without having to actually open it up and start searching line by line. Produces a nice little summary and also generates a report if you need to upload something to MOS.
