show soap message of JAXWS / wsimport generated Java clients

To show the raw SOAP message you could set the following values:

com.sun.xml.internal.ws.transport.http.client.HttpTransportPipe.dump = true
com.sun.xml.internal.ws.transport.http.HttpAdapter.dump_threshold = 64000;

they could be set using the debugger or the -D parameter used to execute the program.

here you could see a older older Version using System Propertys

System.setProperty("com.sun.xml.ws.transport.http.client.HttpTransportPipe.dump", "true");
System.setProperty("com.sun.xml.internal.ws.transport.http.client.HttpTransportPipe.dump", "true");

GFTP Password descrumble

if you want to descrumble gftp passwords from the bookmark file you can use the command decode.py

you need to search for the password=$SOMETHING inside of the bookmark file. Than you code use the

apache virtual hosts after update

if your subdomains got lost after updating your apache, this may be related to a new default setting.
To test this, you can try to enable your missing subdomain.


if you get a "ERROR: Site YOURSUBDOMAIN does not exist!" you should have a closer look to your /etc/apache2/sites-availble directory. If your files does not end with .conf they woundn't be found anymore.

if you want to rename them

find . -print0 -not -name "*.conf" | xargs -n 1 -0 -I {} mv {} {}.conf

and you should be able to a2ensite them again.

Analyse Image based PDF Files for Text content (great for Fax services)

If you have to analyse image based texted files (like from a fax or scanner), you could try to use a OCR software like tesseract. It works quite well and you can reorganise a complete new source for information.

i simply use following commands (see attached file):


if [ $# -eq 1 ]; then

Magento WS-I Compliance mode, fixing the WSDL

If you try to generate code from the WS-I Compliance WSDL of the magento soap service you may run into the problem that:

{urn:Magento}[message:catalogProductAttributeRemoveResponse] not exist.

in Version 1.7.2 (CE) and Magento Enterprise this is not fixed.
I found a solution. Someone on stackoverflow fixed the wsi.xml and made a diff file. I did the same changes and added the file so you do not need to update the file by yourself.
