Kümmern Sie sich um Ihre Kunden – bevor es der Mitbewerber tut

Im Onlinehandel auf sich aufmerksam zu machen, wird für Unternehmen in der virtuellen Welt immer schwieriger. Die Märkte nahezu jeder Branche sind in den vergangenen Jahren explosionsartig gewachsen.

Some Data Pump issues: + DBMS_DATAPUMP Import via NETWORK_LINK fails + STATUS parameter giving bad performance

Take the Creepy Out of Recruiting

| Jun 30, 2015

By Jim Lein


I admit it. Sometimes I creep. Anyone who prides themselves on being a top notch web researcher will from time to time. For instance, my son just received his roommate assignment for his freshman year at college and I knew everything the web could tell me about that kid within half an hour.

In fairness, most LinkedIn users are probably more flattered than insulted by recruiters looking at their profiles. But if (more...)

Groovy Tuesday: Custom Validations When Loading Data

Did you know that if you use the file-based loaders for importing business transaction records it will bypass any custom groovy logic and object/field validation rules you've added through Application Composer.  If you don't want that to happen, then you should use the related web services for creating/updating transaction records. This is because unlike the loaders the web services are built-into the functional flows and enforce the same validation as that on the UI. (more...)

Zone Creation updated

I have updated my MOS note(1916639.1) to reflect the current best practice related to application zone creation. It is recommended to use one LUN per LDOM as a shared pool from which to allocate the rpools for each zone. The number of ISCSI luns configured affects the failover time on the ZFS storage appliance. Therefore it is a best practice to use a shared pool for the allocation of the rpools for each application (more...)

The svcbundle(1M)program is intended to help you get by that roadblock. Based on the command line options svcbundle generates a valid service manifest or profile. In all but the simplist of cases, you will need to hand edit the generated file, but svcbundle gets you off to (more...)

“We are explorers, Rom”

After over a decade, I’ve come to a bend in the road, which while I’m super excited to take and move along, makes me leave behind all familiar scenes of classrooms full of learning and fun. That I’ve only fond memories of most part of my teaching profession at Sun and then at Oracle is with no tinge of exaggeration. And sure enough, I wouldn’t be willing to trade the bygone decade of my life (more...)
