HEUG Alliance is next week. I hope you are registered. I know this will be a fun and informative conference (as always). I am scheduled for two sessions at Alliance:
- PeopleSoft Developer: Tips and Techniques on Monday at 3:30 PM in room 6B/C and
- PeopleSoft Meet the Experts on Tuesday at 10:15 AM in room 307/308 table 2.
When I'm not in sessions, you will find me in the demo grounds. Stop by and say "Hello!"
Cloud. There are many definitions out there. Marketers and sales people. Engineers. Industry analysts. The National Institute of Standard and Technology. Frankly, most of those definitions are either wrong, or they're technically accurate while thoroughly useless. (more...)
Be aware that you can search the web and find many definitions regarding a Center of Excellence is and what it does. Forget that stuff, most of it does not (more...)
Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service(ABCS) is generally available now.
ABCS is an all-in-one box: software development and database in one service.
Oracle ABCS provides a platform to not only create mobile and web applications in the cloud, but also deploy and host them in a cloud environment.

The BI Publisher SIG is gearing up for Collaborate 2016 in April and is looking for volunteers to share their experiences, tricks, tips, challenges, etc… with fellow users during our meeting in Las Vegas on Monday April 11th. Do you have a story to tell? Want to showcase a challenge? Want to brag about an accomplishment?

One particular technique that I will take as an example for this article is index compression. A good example in PeopleSoft is the tree node table, PSTREENODE. It drives many security and hierarchical queries. It is not updated very frequently, only as new trees are brought on. Many of the indexes are good candidates for compression. Oracle can (more...)
For a procedure (or function) in a package, you can assign default values only in the package specifications without assigning them in the package body:
SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE test_default_pkg AS PROCEDURE set_global (p_num IN NUMBER DEFAULT 1); END; / Package TEST_DEFAULT_PKG compiled SQL> SHOW ERRORS; No errors. SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY test_default_pkg AS PROCEDURE set_global (p_num IN NUMBER) AS BEGIN NULL; END; END; / Package body TEST_DEFAULT_PKG compiled SQL> SHOW ERRORS; (more...)
Some of Dr. Pareto's work is based on the Pareto Principle: the idea that 80% of effects come from 20% of causes. In the real world, we continually see examples of the Pareto Principle.
I've been conducting one of my informal surveys (more...)
The title of the Contribute event/seminar was "Oracle Forms 12c: Built to last".
Indeed, Forms is built to last. It has been around for over 20 years and it's added to Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c, which is supported until 2023.
Oracle Forms is still running at a lot of Belgian companies looking at the turnout.
The ‘Year in Blogging’ reports have come through so I can see what posts and newsletter items garnered the most views.
PeopleSoft Tipster Blog
So, according to the summary, this blog was visited 130,000 times during the year, an average of ~350/day with the busiest day being just over double that at 749 visitors. About 50% of the traffic is from the US, 15% from India, and 5% from the UK and Canada.
Amazingly, the (more...)
Next up in our ‘How I Work‘ series is Dan Iverson. Dan – together with partner-in-crime Kyle – runs the PSAdmin.io blog. If you’re a PeopleSoft administrator and connected to the Internet then there’s no doubt that you’ll have heard of their blog as they’re really prolific and have posted some great content. Clearly blogging wasn’t enough however, and there is now the PeopleSoft Administrator PodCast which is ~45 minutes of topical awesomeness. I (more...)
Oracle did an update of the support document for Fusion Middleware.
Fusion Middleware 12c(12.2.x) is supported until October 2023(extended support).
Of course this includes Forms and Reports!
But you can also see that the premier support for Forms 11gR2 ends at the end of this year!
Just to remind you, the support is (almost)the same for premier and extended, but you'll have to pay an additional fee for extended support.
