So...I'm working with a dev group on a relatively new project. Not all of the environments are up and running yet and I'm the one that is doing the automation for application installation and deployment on the servers. The applications are enterprise java applications and we're using IBM websphere as our application and process server. A few weeks ago, I knew nothing about websphere and had to learn quite a bit about the wsadmin jython interface.

So we're running into problems with installation that mostly revolve around my lack of knowledge of websphere and my lack of access to a test environment. We've corrected a large portion of the problems through a very slow process of trial and error that involves a chain of people to get each step done. This has resulted in a monumental waste of time.

However, there is this one problem where I'm telling them where the problem resides and my lack of knowledge, experience, etc, with websphere is being put into question by blaming my scripting rather than actually looking where I'm suggesting. Sadly, of all of these people, I'm the least knowledgeable of this system and...I'm the one that's right.

Can't do any more testing until tomorrow, at which point I'll be able to do it myself as I should finally have access to an environment and have access to the information I need. Until then, this has been another day of wasted time. At least once I have the appropriate access I need to the information I've been waiting for I'll be able to fix a lot of the broken logic in my scripting!

\m/

BTW, I hate websphere.

Today started with the same old chain of people to write code, test, complain, blame, etc. I finally got my access approved and once that happened, I had a working script in a matter of minutes, working around the various problems I've been running into. I believe I'll be getting more done tomorrow than I did in the past few weeks. I'd work on it more today but I'm about to leave for physical therapy (ugh).
