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 very well given the nature of what we expect (i.e. everything for free) and how niche developers work together as a community (through mutual sharing).

In the true hacker spirit, therefore, I’m making all the tools completely free to download from now and for ever more. Simply head on over to the Software Store and choose your downloads – you don’t even need to be a registered user. I’m giving away:

Siebel Performance Log Analyser

Quickly see poorly performing SQL in your client or server SQL logs

Siebel Error Log Analyser

Quickly and easily identify critical “SBL” errors in your log files

Siebel Logger

Dynamic dedicated web client logging – and yes, it supports Siebel IP 17!

MSMQ Explorer

Advanced Microsoft MSMQ queue management in one handy app

I hope these tools help you on your own journey’s towards Siebel greatness!

Blog and Store Registration Problems

I’ve had a few complaints recently that the registration and password reminder system is not working properly on the site. This includes creating a Siebel Store account, as well as registering for the Blog.

The problem seems to be related to / email servers rejecting the “New User Registration” emails. I suspect this is because the WordPress site uses the host SMTP server, resulting in a mismatch of domains that causes suspicion with that provider (and probably others).

I’ve now resolved this by using the Google Mail API to send all site emails. The result is that recipient mail servers should be far less likely to reject / block the email that is send on registration or when you request a password reminder.

Siebel Store – 500th Download!

Okay, so it’s no iTunes or Play Store, but the 500th item from the Siebel Store has now been downloaded!


The experiment that it The Siebel Store has been a really, really interesting one. I suppose it’s no surprise that free downloads have been gobbled up by passers by and very little in the way of actual sales have been made. Still, it was never about the money and it’s good to know that there is some demand out there for Siebel software.

Siebel Repository Analyser – Client Edition

There has been some interest in the Siebel Repository Analyser, but questions over it’s use of the Siebel COM Data Control. As you know, this control connects directly to the Object Manager on a given application server and so requires both the corresponding server components installed, and firewall access to the server itself.

This has caused some issues for a small set of users.

As such, I’ve built a version using the Siebel Mobile Web Client Automation Server. All you have to do is launch a Mobile or Developer Web Client. Clicking ‘Login’ in the Repository Analyser will connect to that running Siebel instance and you’ll be able to use the functionality from there.


Very useful for running the tool against Local Database Repositories!

The client version of the tool is now available for download in The Siebel Store.

Store FAQ and Forum – Now Open

The Store is still going strong – in terms of free downloads! Please consider purchasing some of the paid for items and submitting some code of your own.

I’ve opening up two new areas on the site:

Store FAQs

This new page contains a load of Frequently Asked Questions, divided into specific areas of Store functionality. Here you’ll find purchasing FAQs and details of how to submit items for consideration.


Store Forums

The forums have been setup to allow you to communicate with Store developers and the community in general. It’s here that you can raise issues that you have with The Store itself, items that you’ve downloaded from The Store. More importantly, there is a forum dedicated to product suggestions. Personally, I’m happy to accept challenges from the community as I do enjoy writing code! Please feel free to submit suggestions and requests and I’m sure someone out there will be happy to help – trhis is also key in growing the products available in The Store.
