BI Publisher exposes four public Web services which can be used to perform a variety of activities including running a report.
The screenshot below is of a simple SOA composite which calls the runReport() method on the ReportService Web service to run a report with parameters. While Oracle’s official documentation is sufficient enough to make this a trivial exercise but there are still a couple of points to remember which is why this blog post is here in (more...)
I just wanted to post a quick note with my schedule for Collaborate 2016. I will be presenting PeopleSoft Developer Tips and Techniques on April 13th at 9:15 AM in Reef C. My publisher assured me that I will have a box of books waiting for me at the conference and we plan to give them away at various sessions during the conference. Here are a couple of other sessions I recommend attending at Collaborate:
I am presenting in OAUG Collaborate 2016 about our experiences with running E-Business Suite on Engineered Systems - Exadata, Exalogic, ZFS and PCA. Session Details:
Please attend, if you are coming to OAUG Collaborate.
There have been a few announcements over the last couple of weeks about the Oracle Public Cloud. But what does it actually mean for the PeopleSoft community?
What is Oracle Public Cloud?
The Oracle Public Cloud is Oracle’s competitor to the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers that have swiftly risen to create a whole industry that didn’t exist 10 years ago. Because they’re the market leader (by far) everyone automatically thinks of Amazon, however (more...)
The next profile in our ‘How I Work‘ series is Sasank Vemana. Sasank burst onto the PeopleSoft blogging scene in 2014 with his Sasank’s PeopleSoft Log site, and has been adding entries at a ferocious pace since. He is probably best known for his series of posts on altering the PeopleSoft branding to make it match a corporate palette, as well as configuration and code changes related to UI/UX.
I met Sasank at (more...)
Lately I have had to install Weblogic 12.1 and OHS 12.1 on a Linux server in silent mode.
Somehow, there was very small space left on the default temporary filesystem /tmp.
I was having to find a way to install within the non-default /tmp.
Not so simple to find the option in the command line, that's why this article as a note for myself, maybe it also can help others.
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!"
I have recently spent far too much time in far too many conversations in which the terms "cloud" and "SaaS" are used interchangeably. Let's be clear: the two terms are not interchangeable as they describe very different concepts.
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...)
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? We would love to have YOU, the actual user spend 10-15 minutes sharing your experiences/stories with (more...)
A long time I was not really active on eBS, a long time I was not blogging anymore.
I just want to document my R12.2 adventures.
One was that the fast formula text is now stored in a clob column, gone is the long column. Finally. Our Documentool for Payroll supports this little change already for a while.
Value set security. I was not able anymore to enter values for a value set. Reading
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);
Package TEST_DEFAULT_PKG compiled
SQL> SHOW ERRORS;
SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY test_default_pkg AS
PROCEDURE set_global (p_num IN NUMBER) AS
Package body TEST_DEFAULT_PKG compiled
SQL> SHOW ERRORS;
