“Monty Hall Problem” simulation in ZX Spectrum BASIC

Something completely different this week! I've been a bit of computer spod for most of my life, and it all started with a 48K ZX Spectrum home computer. My dad bought it in the early 80s and I took to writing games and keying in code listings from the likes of Your...

The Wonderful Workspace

I've been around Siebel for nearly 20 years now. Yes, I know I don't look old enough, but that would be the fresh Scottish air. Siebel has evolved over that time but never to any sort of degree that truly made life better for a Siebel developer. Now, with the release...

Applet Edit Web Layout in IP 2017

A couple of people have asked me recently about the inactive "Edit Web Layout" menu item in Siebel Tools. Well, that functionality is gone - web templates are no longer stored locally in files, but in the database, and so the ability to access this function in Siebel...

Siebel Utils Going Free!

I've put together many tools and apps over the years, mostly to help me learn the C# language, but also to help me on my quest to get the most out of Siebel. The Siebel Store was an experiment in "commoditizing" these tools and my code, and it hasn't really worked...

Self Signed Certificate for Siebel 17

It has been rather quiet of late, I'm afraid. The trials and responsibilities of everyday life continue to thwart my efforts to update the blog and keep you appraised of all things "after Siebel"! However, Siebel 17 is not forgotten and I've been working closely with...

Siebel 17 – Database Configuration

Having installed the Siebel 17 software, there's one more step before we can set up the logical Gateway, Enterprise, Siebel Server and Application Interface (what used to be the SWSE): install the Siebel database. As part of the Siebel Server installation, you'll have...

Siebel 17 – Installation

So, it's finally arrived - Siebel 17 is here! Of course, I've immediately hammered my home broadband to download all 20 delightful gigabytes of installation material to give you the low down on how to set it all up. I've prepared 4 VMs for my Siebel 17 environment:...

Siebel 17 – Useful Links

I've just seen a load of excellent posts on John Bedford's "Oracle Siebel CRM" blog, answering many of the frequently asked questions related to the upcoming release of Siebel IP 2017: Innovation Pack 17.0 FAQ - Architecture Innovation Pack 17.0 FAQ - Cloud Innovation...

Siebel IP 2017 is coming…

My time away from Siebel is almost at an end: we're looking at our Siebel 8.1 UCM service and are kicking off a project to bring in IP 2017. I'll admit to being quite excited about getting back onto familiar ground and to see what has become of my beloved technology....
