Cedar had a strong presence at the recent Apps14 conference in the ACC, Liverpool. It is supposed to be the largest applications conference in Europe with over 800 attendees, and we were particularly interested in the PeopleSoft and Apps Innovation streams.
This year we’d decided not to have a stand (as the conference is mixed with the other applications and the database/tech community, it means the exhibition stands are much more expensive than at the PeopleSoft-only (more...)
There has been a lot of talk over the last couple of weeks about PeopleSoft Selective Adoption, the recently-coined term for the PeopleSoft Update Manager delivery model. Much of this has been on the direct benefits to the customer, which is how it should be. Greg Parikh has linked to some of the posts on LinkedIn.
While discussing this with a colleague at the recent Apps14 conference we noticed that there is another implication that I’ve not (more...)
One of my old tricks was to create a PeopleCode dump from the system. Then I could use a text editor tool such as gVim or Ultraedit to search through the code to find examples or certain uses of definitions.

Reading departure signs in some big airport
Reminds me of the places I've been.
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure
Makes me want to go back again.
If it suddenly ended tomorrow,

Good times and riches and son of a b*****s,
I've seen more than I can recall
Nice feature for Oracle dba's to handle the backups using NetApp technology.

I just came back from the East Coast Oracle User Group conference. Good conference. Lots of solid, technical knowledge being shared. Being there got me to thinking...
Over the past few years, a big concern for people attending conferences is the need to justify their attendance. It's a big deal. And, in my own mine, the only real justification is what you bring back, share and apply post-conference. Let me tell you a story (can (more...)
I have been doing some on-line performance tuning on a PeopleSoft Financials system using PeopleSoft Performance Monitor (PPM). End-users have collect verbose PPM traces. Usually, when I use PPM in a production system, all the components are fully cached by the normal activity of the user (except when the application server caches have recently been cleared). However, when working in a user test environment it is common to find that the components are (more...)
Oracle has made the presentations used at Open World 2014 available for download this time too. Here are all the ones that are related to PeopleSoft.
It has been released earlier this week, time to move to VMWare ESXi.
My workaround I described here is still working. To make it short, updating the ovf file as below:
1. ovf:capacity=(ovf:capacity*2)-64512 (I used diskMode=thin in the VM disks’ definition for the import)
2. <OperatingSystemSection ovf:id="101">
And the VM starts properly.
