So what is life like, after Siebel?

It has been many, many months since my last blog update. Life has changed considerably for me in 2016 with my two kids growing up, school drop offs, homework and being aeroplanes in the garden taking precedence over writing articles and installing Siebel patches. In...

An ‘Active Users’ view using Server Manager and a VBC

I've recently implemented a very interesting requirement using my old favourite, the Virtual Business Component (VBC). VBCs are great and allow you to build your own recordset beneath a virtual BC definition that behaves (almost) exactly like an old fashioned BC. The...

Siebel Logger 1.3

The limitations and quirks of Siebel Tools continue to drain my will to live the life of Siebel. I recently had the joys of debugging a Siebel Workflow process that was generating a SQL error - don't you love that the Workflow Simulator ignores the /S switch on the...
