Changing Records in Queries

This isn’t best practice, but I found a way to switch out a record in a query without redoing the criteria. Here’s the situation: I have a query in which the row-level security is causing problems. It is slowing down the query and also eliminating future-dated rows from the results. So, I created a view of the table which would select all of the rows from the original table. It was basically a copy with (more...)

Null Date in PeopleCode

Just the other day, I needed to set a Date to null or blank, and I couldn’t remember how to do it.  Here’s my notes so that I can remember next time.  Javier’s blog came to the rescue:

Javier’s PeopleSoft blog: Setting Date Variables to Null in PeopleCode

The short version is: use the Date(0) function:

     Local Date &hireDate;

     &hireDate = Date(0);

Here’s some more information to explore a little more in depth…

The Date() function (more...)

Implementing Deferred Segment Creation After an Upgrade

I have written previously about Deferred Segment Creation. Each empty table and its indexes use only 64Kb (assuming an 8Kb blocksize and locally managed tablespaces), but in a PeopleSoft there can be be tens of thousands of such tables and that adds up to a saving worth making.

If you are upgrading your database to 11gR2 , you might want to make sure that you are using it.  Deferred segment creation was introduced in (more...)

WebCenter LDAP Filters Explained!

We recently has a client with some LDAP performance issues, and had a need to tune how WebLogic was querying their LDAP repository. In WebLogic, the simplest way to do this is with their LDAP Filters. While trying to explain how to do this, I was struck by the lack of clear documentation on what exactly these filters are and why on earth you would need them... The best documentation was in the WebCenter guide (more...)

What are you all looking for?

Every year all of the social media sites mail out “your top posts/tweets/pages/slideshares/whatever for the year” summaries. I expect that you’ve had some of these too.

I thought it’d be interesting to put mine in one place to see if there’s any correlation or trend in what you all find worth reading.

Could Oracle Cloud Trump Amazon Web Services?

OK, we all read or heard it recently in one form or another.  Oracle has told Amazon that it’s “game on” for leadership in the “commodity” Infrastructure as a Service (“IaaS”) market.  In other words, “we’ll beat you on price”.  Lots have folks have called the declaration crazy - Oracle can’t compete with Amazon on the basis of commodity pricing and never will.  Funny thing is, I think Oracle could actually (more...)

Xprtly – Extreme Coolness

Something cool happened today…something extremely cool.  Xprtly was released into public beta.

What in the heck is Xprtly?  The best way to describe it is a cloud-based support platform, with a mobile application and a web interface for administration.  The idea is to connect users with support personnel who can respond to issues as they arise.  Xprtly also allows for data collection of both user and support personnel behavior, plus analytics (more...)

Fusion Applications: Some Suggested Reading
