GET /apex/oow13/hr/employees instead of a GET /apex/oow13/GetAllEmployees. With REST you have six methods (with the most common associated database actions: GET (select), HEAD (select), OPTIONS (to get a list of methods supported by the resource), PUT (merge (more...)
Today the "Database as a Service" has been announced. Not to confuse with the "Database Platform as a Service" that was announced last year and is available since early this year. With the "platform" service, you get one schema within a database. With the "database" service, (more...)
Redwood Shores, Thursday September 19. 5:30 AM.
5:30 AM? So I must be in the "wrong" timezone.... Just like most European based Oracle ACE Directors in this hotel I woke up early. Not as early as some others - I noticed tweets from around 2:30 - but nevertheless early.
We're just in the second half of the 2013 and now we're already talking about "The best conference of 2014"?
Yep! And this conference will be held on Jun 22-26 in Seattle. So I am talking about ODTUG Kscope 14. What else could it be .... And the best conference (more...)
APEXPosed 2013 will be held on September 10 and 11 in Montreal. The agenda looks great, with a nice mix from local and international speakers. The APEX Development Team will be represented by both (more...)
Last week I presented at the OUG Scotland conference. To my surprise, I received the latest, 50th edition (!), of Oracle Scene - the publication of the UK OUG during registration. And, less to my surprise, there was an article in there written by yours truly: "Building Mobile (more...)
One of my current customers would like to use their LDAP (Microsoft Active Directory) server for authentication and authorization of APEX applications. Of course we tried to set up a standard LDAP Authenication that's available within APEX. But we couldn't get that to work. Maybe it has to do with (more...)
Wow. Doesn't that sound dramatic? It sure does. But in a weird way it also might come true - as I have experienced in the past.
The first Kscope conference I attended was five years ago. And purely by coincidence that was in New Orleans as well! That first year I met all the (more...)
On May 14, the second online ODTUG's Expert Panel will take place.

Very recently a new book came out: "Oracle Application Express for Mobile Web Applications". This book is aimed at developers with some knowledge of APEX and want to know more about building web applications with APEX (of course) especially aimed at mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, and other brands of smartphones (more...)
That's the message I received from a DBA friend who ran into this problem at her customer site. What really happened was that a couple of times a week one of the APEX processes was killed by the operating system due to reaching the limit of 16Gb memory. 16Gb!
Today we ran into a problem in our recently upgraded APEX environment. In one of the pages we had a report defined on a pipelined table function. This function also changed a package global variable. The value of that global variable is used as a source for a page item (more...)
As every year, the UKOUG conference is planned in the first week of December - and therefore as always nicely clashes with a Dutch national event, called "Sinterklaas" (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas for the background information on that event!). Luckily my kids are somewhat older now (and "non-believers"), so (more...)
