ORAchk 12.1.0.4 released – a MUST USE Tool

ORAchk I have blogged a while back in March 2015 about ORAchk 12.1.0.3  as it had added the support for Oracle Restart amongst other great features.

ORAchk (short for: ORA check) is such a great tool to check your environment before any upgrade, but also on a regular basis for almost everything. I'd call it a MUST USE Tool not only for Oracle Grid Infrastructure or Oracle Restart upgrades or patches or changes. (more...)

POCO(Power of Cloud by Oracle) と POCOs

不思議なものでしばらく関わりのなかった Windows .net に関連ある仕事が2つ続いています。
一つ目は火曜日にこのブログに書いた SOAP WebService の件です。
二つ目は以下の日本語のOTNのページで登場するODAC,ODP.NETなどと呼ばれるデータベース系の製品です。

.NET Developer Center

Entity Framework 6 Code First および Code First Migrations; .NET Framework 4.5.2

新機能を調べていたら "POCOs" という単語が出てきてました。これはもしや世間では紛らわしいことになっていないかと
Twitterで検索したところやはりそういう方がいらっしゃいました。

"Plain Old CLR Object" oracle lang:ja - Twitter Search

Plain Old CLR ObjectがOracleに関係あるんだっけ?

これは関係あります。マニュアルはここです。Oracle的にはPOCO"s" と小文字sを付けるようです。

Code First

Within Code First, the classes defined in code that comprise the model are known as Plain Old CLR Objects (POCOs).

一方 "s" のない "POCO" は上のtwitter検索でも出てきますが The Power of Cloud by Oracle です。

Using Universal Connection Pooling (UCP) with JBoss AS

Even though WebLogic with Active GridlLink is Oracle's suggested approach to deploy Java applications that use Oracle Real Applications Clusters (RAC), there might be scenarios in which you can't make that choice (e.g.: certification issues, licensing, library dependency, etc.). Application servers and their database connection pool mechanisms might end up being a bottleneck in the architecture of your applications and a critical component to provide performance, scalability and high-availability.

UCP, besides providing (more...)

Why We Do “Fancy Friday”

It started out innocently enough: One person wanted to bring back “Fancy Friday,” a tradition from the pre-acquisition days of the startup Vitrue. Since the dress code was relaxed, they decided to dress up on Fridays.

Seems simple, right?


It was - in the beginning. One person did it, then a few more joined in, and before we knew what was happening, we were dressed up as pirates.

Wait, what?


Yes, we’re dressed as pirates. (more...)

ODI – Hive DDL Generation for Parquet, ORC, Cassandra and so on

Here you'll see how with some small surgical extensions we can use ODI to generate complex integration models in Hive for modelling all kinds of challenges;

  • integrate data from Cassandra, or any arbitrary SerDe
  • use Hive Parquet or ORC storage formats
  • create partitioned, clustered tables
  • define arbitrarily complex attributes on tables

I'm very interested in hearing what you think of this, and what is needed/useful over and above (RKMs etc) 

When you use this technique (more...)
