Error 404: SRVE0190E: File not found: /stores/servlet/home

This could happen due to multiple reasons but a couple of reasons that I have seen prominently and please free to add in your comments.

Debugging 1st approach: WebServer configuration
1.Goto access.log in C:\IBM\HTTPServer\logs  and you will see - -"GET /shop/home HTTP/1.1" 404 60
2. Goto C:\IBM\HTTPServer\conf and make sure the httpd.conf and make sure toolkit is pointing to correct directory.
3. Before you make any modifications, do take a backup of httpd.conf

Debugging 2nd approach:

1. Make sure the WC->properties->Java EE Module dependencies has Stores.war checked.

Deploying WebsphereCommerceServerExtensionsData --EJBDeployer had Errors

This happens due to a bug in RAD and RAD goes into an inconsistent state. I would try clean build and close data project but even if this does not work. If you have a working data project copy , try to replace that with the data project from workspace and try doing java EE->prepare deployment.

CMN8413E: The messaging system cannot find an appropriate profile | Enable transports in V7

If you see an error similar to the one below, most likely your transport is inactive.

[6/25/14 14:05:41:279 PDT] 00000047 CommerceSrvr  A loadAdminData(Integer,Integer,Integer) CMN8413E: The messaging system cannot find an appropriate profile for MSGTYPE_ID "101" to match an active transport of the STORE_ID "10051" in table PROFILE. Ensure that the MSGTYPE has been assigned to an active transport under the store or site.

Login into Admin console and activate Websphere MQ by changing status as show in the image on the right.

If the transports are not visible enable them from wc-server.xml. In V7 by default they are not enabled so 

Search for the string below in wc-server.xml and make enable true and similarly you can do it for other transports: A couple of enabled transport xml snippets from wc-server.xml below.
        enabled="true" id="3"
        name="JMS" retries="3">
        enabled="true" id="1"

Data Loader Override FullImage, Thumbnail scenario fix or any other columns exclusion

This blog explain a scenario where  FULLIMAGE and THUMBNAIL are overridden in table CATGRPDESC even when the CSV files is not passing the values for these fields.
This can be used to apply column level exclusions for any other component similarly so these fields are not overridden.


Pasting a block where the change is required..this XML has much more business object configurations:
 <_config:DataLoader className="">
    <_config:table name="CATGRPDESC" columns="FULLIMAGE,THUMBNAIL" />
    <_config:DataReader className="" firstLineIsHeader="true" useHeaderAsColumnName="true" />

Sample RunProductLoad.bat for testing, make sure the path for wc-dataload-catalog-group.xml is correctly done as it is pointing to relative below:

@echo off
cd "C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\bin"
call dataload ..\workspace\DataLoad\dataload\CustomDataLoad\MasterCatalog\wc-dataload-catalog-group.xml -DXmlValidation="false" -DComponent=CustomDataLoad\MasterCatalog -DFeedHome=C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\workspace\DataLoad\dataload -DWCConfigHome=C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\workspace\WC\xml\config -DCVConfigHome=C:\IBM\WCDE_ENT70\workspace\DataLoad\dataload\Config

Sample CSV file: CatalogGroup.csv, GroupIdentifier points to CATGROUP.IDENTIFIER and ParentGroupIdentifier is the parent from CATGRPREL

Start date 2013-01-28 16:40:42 
36010,310010,FALSE,0,Sample & Decors,Sample & Decors,1

If you have spaces before of GroupIdentifier or ParentGroupIdentifier: It causes this issue below:

Exception message:
The ID was not resolved for the table CATGROUP with the unique index data [  310010, 7000000000000000051].

Encryption key based algorithms in Commerce | Error Invalid Key Size

I have encountered this since older versions of commerce, all the way to V7 and this could happen with any type of key based encrypted algorithms. In this scenario, I was testing AESCipher using AES encryption but can happen working on multiple algorithms with larger key size.

This error is caused by restrictions in some countries with key size and hence the default Java spec does not provide unlimited key strength as a default configuration and it requires the policy jars to be updated.

Back up the following files from C:\IBM\SDP\runtimes\base_v7\java\jre\lib\security and get the latest files for IBM JDK and replace with these existing files and restart. Do not get these files below from as IBM uses it's own SDK.

Steps to download the IBM JDK security files:

This step would be required on all the server environments similarly to update the policy files.
