My bodybuilding routine: Fatloss & maintaining muscle

You can find me at the gym 6 days a week. And when I’m at the gym, I am probably there for almost 2 hours. It seems like a long time, also it was me who said you have to hit the gym short and hard. But I don’t just do weight training in those 2 hours. It’s a complete workout. Right now I am trying to maintain my muscle and lose...

Reading cookies in Mule ESB 4

Reading cookies in Mule ESB

If Mulesoft is good in anything it’s the lack of examples and documentation. I find myself busy with trial and error programming quite often. Now: reading a cookie from a HTTP request from an HTTP connector. So what I do is sending out an HTTP-request and get a response, which contains a cookie (e.g. session id). I have to use the value of the cookie in all the following request I am making to...

Enterprise Single Sign-On Server: Unspecified error

Always fun to install BizTalk 2013 without installing Visual Studio first. There seem to be so many components in Visual Studio’s installation that make the BizTalk installation easy. But now busy with the production server I am getting the following error. Brace yourself! Enterprise Single Sign-On Server: Unspecified error After some digging in the instrallation log I noticed some weird text though (C:/Users/<USER>/AppData/Local):  

  Notice the weird characters...

Discipline and a lot of time in the gym

I spend 2 hours a day in the gym, that’s quite impossible if you have 2 kids running around Last time I blogged it was about me having a hard time at the gym, but also about my results. People seem surprised by the results I was showing in just 6 months of hard work. “How did I build up so much muscle in so little time? And what did you use...

BizTalk 2013 SSO installation error: Internal Error 2337

Just a quick blog here. For myself and for other guys on the Internet run into same problem. I tried to do a cluster installation of the SSO Master Secret Server for BizTalk Server 2013 and I got the error below: Product: Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On — Internal Error 2337. 0, Microsoft.ExceptionMessageBoxCopy.dll The solution is easy. Make sure you install the .Net Framework (4.5) first. And then restart your SSO Master Secret Server...

Getting back on track at the gym

I do take a lot of selfies according to some friends 🙂 Yes I am proud of myself lately. I’ve been busy with so many things lately. Work, holiday, working out, learning Mule, writing articles for a big Dutch Windows Phone blog and getting that blog redesigned as well. I neglected writing articles on my own blog, so I think it’s time for an update! Apart from not writing articles for my own...

BizTalk 2013 TCP/IP Adapter

For a client’s migration to BizTalk 2013, I came across a TCP/IP adapter which needed to be migrated as well. I was unable to find a 2013 version of the adapter though and decided to update it myself. I used the 2010 fork of the original adapter and updated all references. Also the depricated setup project needed to be rebuilt, so now the setup uses a InstallShield Limited Edition setup...

Mule ESB: Reading data from a JDBC endpoint Stored Procedure call

As some of you may know I have also been busy with some open source middleware, specifically Mule ESB, by Mulesoft. The first thing I noticed was that there’s really not that much information to be found online for all the cases you encounter. It makes starting development harder than at first glance. Added to the fact that I had some shortcomings when it comes to Java, as a .Net...

HL7: party not resolving custom namespace in BizTalk 2013

I have been busy with this the last couple of hours and really didn’t get it. We recently started a migration to BizTalk 2013 and I was just testing the development machine and came across the problem that my custom namespace was not being resolved in HL7. Problem I created a party ROB, which used a custom ADT^A04 schema with namespace http://roborop/HealthCare/HL7/2X. I changed the namespace accordingly in the BTAHL7...

My lose-that-weight nutrition plan – or – peanutbutter diet 0

My lose-that-weight nutrition plan – or – peanutbutter diet

Sometimes people come up to me and ask me what I did to lose weight. I always end up saying that I go to the gym and that I only eat peanutbutter. And you should see the faces 🙂 It’s actually true that I also eat peanutbutter to lose weight, but of course not only peanutbutter. Peanutbutter is good, since it doesn’t really contain sugar but contains a lot of...
