- Calling the Test Server Page (<host>:<port>/otpc) you just get a simple message “Oracle Team Productivity Center” Request to Oracle: Please display some more information: Version, active connectors, etc.....!!! At the moment this does not look enterprise production ready!! Sorry. It looks like a prototyp so far……
- Do I really have to create all the users into the OTPC repository by hand? Can’t I connect to an LDAP-Server? This also looks not enterprise production ready. Sorry.
