Three Great Things You Didn’t Know About SQLT

SQLT is an amazing tool with a host of user friendly features. This post covers three I've found particularly useful; how to use SQLT on a test database where it isn't installed, how to get rid of histograms and how, when your system is large, you can get the information (more...)

PL/SQL function in SQL – short example – Oracle 12c

This is my first post about Oracle 12c. When I first time heard about PL/SQL functions inside SQL my first thought was - can I use it in my topaas.sql script to run it in loop ? I decided to give PL/SQL functions in SQL a quick try to and (more...)

Easy HTML output in IPython Notebook

If any object has a _repr_html_ method, the IPython Notebook will use it to render HTML output. It's really easy to make a simple class that permits general dynamic HTML-rich output with Markdown. Markdown is a superset of HTML, so HTML in your output string will work, too.

Oracle Database 12c Multitenant Option and Application Express

As you probably know by now, Oracle Database 12c was made generally available on Tuesday, June 25th.

Oracle Database 12c is ‘out’ – some pleasant surprises

Without fanfare, other than a "didyaknow" on Oracle-L, Oracle 12c for Linux and Solaris became available on Oracle's edelivery site.

Some time later, the docs showed up at http://www.oracle.com/pls/db121/homepage and via http://docs.oracle.com (but not yet on tahiti.oracle.com) and on OTN's http://download.oracle.com

KScope 13 – Monday

This week I'm in the Big Easy hanging out at ODTUG’s Kscope 13 conference. I have heard this is the best conference for Hyperion and Oracle Business Intelligence so my expectations are high. I’m not as strong in either topic as I am with PeopleSoft but there’s nothing like a (more...)

Let me SLEEP!

DBMS_LOCK is a slightly obscure built-in package. It provides components which so we build our own locking schemes. Its obscurity stems from the default access on the package, which is restricted to its owner SYS and the other power user accounts. Because implementing your own locking strategy is a good (more...)

Oracle 10g – a time traveller’s tale

Time travel sucks, especially going back in time. Nobody takes a bath, there are no anaesthetics and you can't get a decent wi-fi signal anywhere. As for killing your own grandfather, forget about it.

The same is true for going back in database versions. In 2009 I had gone straight (more...)

Where’s SCOTT?

The database on the Developer Days Database App VBox appliance doesn't have the SCOTT schema. This is fair enough, as the sample schemas aren't include by default any more (for security reasons, obviously). I know the official sample schemas used in the documentation - HR, OE, and so on - (more...)

How One Man Killed the Cloud

While I was not surprised that the U.S. intelligence agencies monitor web activity, I was surprised at the scale revealed by the Edward Snowdon leaks.

Credential Store Framework

Sometimes you have the need for credentials (username/password) in your ADF, or other Fusion Middleware, application. I've seen numerous solutions with property files, web.xml context parameters, deployment plans, etc. Most of these run into problems with SysOps or anyone else worried with security.
