The UK Oracle User Group PeopleSoft Roadshow is nearly upon us. It’s my favourite PeopleSoft event in the UK’s calendar as you know that everyone there has a focus on PeopleSoft and the agenda is always really strong.
It’s 26th April (yes, a week today!) in the Crowne Plaza, London – the same as last time, which was a great venue.

In terms of Oracle speakers, we’re spoiled this year with (more...)
So I suppose that if I'm going to blow the trumpet and announce the resurrection of this blog, I'd better write something meaningful...
I'm in Northern California at Oracle HQ this week. It's always fun to observe what's happening here in Silicon Valley. For example, I can see the tech market is still good...lots of employment ads on billboards between the San Jose and San Francisco airports. And the highly-publicized drought is clearly broken: (more...)
Every person has a gift, or an ability that sets them apart from the crowd. Good managers recognize this and try to use it to their advantage. Great managers try to surround themselves with talent...they recognize that with that much talent in their corner, they can't fail. Bad managers feel threatened and try to discredit […]
Welcome back, my friendsTo the show that never endsWe're so glad you could attendCome inside! Come inside! -- From Emerson, Lake and Palmer's Karn Evil 9
Yup, it's true. We're breathing new life into an old blog with the resurrection of ORCLville.
When I closed down ORCLville last year, it was over concerns regarding conflicts of interest over my employment with Oracle (more...)
It is nearly 10 years since I first wrote about how to call Unix shell scripts from the Process Scheduler
. Although very little has changed, I have had a number of questions recently, so I thought it was time I checked the script and updated the posting. I have used PeopleTools 8.54 in the preparation of this note.
The Process Scheduler is essentially just a mechanism for initiating processes on another server. (more...)
We are in the final countdown for Alliance 2017. I am really excited about this conference. It is such a great opportunity to meet up with old friends as well as make new ones. The Alliance session content and delivery is extremely high caliber. HEUG is a very engaged community. The MGM is a pretty amazing facility as well.
At GreyHeller our week starts with an amazing Monday workshop. On Monday, February 27th from 10:00 (more...)
I discovered the unistr sql function, which shows the unicode symbol of an hexadecimal input.
eg> select unistr('\2713 ') tick from dual;
As such I constructed a dynamic (sql) LOV in apex, converting the Y/N codes into a unicode symbol. See the tick symbol query above.
Linking the LOV to a reporting column (text shown as LOV) changed the Y/N values of the column in a nice symbol.
Things might look a little different on the blog if you haven’t been back in a while. And, things might not be working quite up to par for a bit. Please pardon the dust. I’m trying to get things back in order as quickly as my schedule allows.
So, here’s what’s going on: I am moving my website to a VPS. My term at Hostgator expired, and I decided that this next year, I want (more...)
Wish every one a Happy New Year.
The next profile in our ‘How I Work‘ series is Colton Fischer. Colton is one of the crop of new PeopleSoft bloggers bursting on the scene during 2016. His PeopleSoft Mods blog is a treasure trove of great content and if you’ve not been there before it’s worth scrolling back through Colton’s historical posts – as he doesn’t just look at existing delivered functionality but extends PeopleSoft in ways that it’s clear to (more...)
We are working on a native plsql integration between popay.net and Netsuite. We need such for some new customers in Kenya and South Africa. The solution will be based on raw SOAP messages, all handled with plsql, including the token based authentication (TBA).
By pure coincidence, Larry opted to acquire Netsuite during the same period.
The documentation is sometimes a little though to get
There’s a great episode of Marc Weintraub’s PeopleSoft Talk interview series, featuring a 30 minute discussion with Paco Aubrejuan. There’ll be some great points for everyone to take away from it, however here are my highlights:
On the current Support End date of December 2027:
There’s no plan on ending support for PeopleSoft then, it’s actually not that important a date. It happens to be the date right now that our lifetime support goes to … (more...)

At 11:00 AM Pacific on Tuesday, October 25th (tomorrow), I have the privilege of talking about Cloud and on-premise (ground) integration. Whether cloud to cloud, cloud to ground, or ground to ground, integration is probably one of the most difficult aspects of any implementation. Integration comes in two flavors:
Back-end integration is the most common. Back-end integration involves integrating data between two systems either for processing or presenting a common user experience.
Oracle being proactive about out-of-support systems, patch availability and expiring passwords is nothing new. But this takes it to a different level altogether.
