Getting Started with Coherence*Web in WebLogic Server 12.1.2 by Tim Middleton

Coherence*Web is a great feature which allows you to store your HTTP sessions in a Coherence Cluster. Doing this allows your to de-couple the HTTP sessions from your JVM’s that are running your web apps, (which can free up JVM memory) and take advantage of the RASP (Reliability, Availability, Scalability and Performance) capabilities of Coherence for storage.

Implementing deadline functionality with Oracle Adaptive Case Management by Léon Smiers

Oracle released Adaptive Case Management (ACM) in 2013 as part of the BPM stack. One of the functionality we needed in a project recently, was the handling of deadlines in the context of a case. There is (currently) no out-of-the-box solution to, for example, escalate or reassign a case when a specific deadline has expired. In this blog we describe how this functionality can be created with the out-of-the-box functionality of Oracle Case Management.

VNC Cut & Paste on Solaris 10

I love being able to cut & paste between my laptop (e-mail, web browser, etc.) and my VNC session. This functionality is controlled by vncconfig. From the man page:

vncconfig is used to configure and control a running
instance of Xvnc, or any other X server with the VNC exten-
sion. Note that it cannot be used to control VNC servers
prior to version 4.

On SSE_ROLE DBA alternative

There is often an awkward quandary among DBA's whenever the development team asks the DBA to create SSE_ROLE per Oracle documentation. This is true especially in production.

Per Oracle Docuentation:
CREATE ROLE SSE_ROLE;
GRANT DBA TO SSE_ROLE;
GRANT SSE_ROLE TO OBAW;

I suggest the following alternative to my clients:
Grant schema with CONNECT, RESOURCE, and SSE_ROLE_ALT. Use SSE_ROLE_ALT instead of SSE_ROLE

Grant below privileges to OBAW:
CREATE TABLE
CREATE TRIGGER
CREATE SEQUENCE
CREATE PROCEDURE
CREATE INDEXTYPE
CREATE CLUSTER
