The Ghosts of Java EE 7 in Production: Past, Present and Future

In the past few days I've seen a certain predictable group of folks on the Interwebs feigning concern over the viability of using Java EE 7 in production. I have to be honest in that I think it is fairly obvious these concerns are more -ahem- opportunistic than sincere or well-intentioned. Nevertheless I think this is a great trigger to discuss something valuable to the Java EE community anyway - Java EE 7 production adoption (more...)

The Ghosts of Java EE 7 in Production: Past, Present and Future

                            "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

                                                                                                                 – Mahatma Gandhi

For those unfamiliar the three ghosts analogy comes from the Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol. I hope the real message of the analogy is an entertaining but insightful literary puzzle for you to figure out, not to mention the far less imaginative opening quote largely along the same lines :-).

In the past (more...)

SQL Developer: Active SQL Monitor

SQL Developer has the ability to generate "Active SQL Monitor" report for a long time but current version 4.1 has a small problem.
It can't generate perfectly correct HTML file when connected to DB 12.1.0.2.

This issue is already reported and there are some work-arounds.

First one is to not open the HTML file directly in browser. Have it served from HTTP server.
HTTP server can be local. For example, if (more...)

Loading Custom Calendars using the Universal Adaptor

Author: Chuan Shi

Introduction

In Oracle BI Apps time dimension, we support fiscal calendars extracted from customers’ OLTP systems. However, there could be situations that customers need to use a custom calendar that does not exist. For example,

  • Siebel customers do not have any fiscal calendars in the OLTP
  • EBS/PSFT/Fusion customers do not have the specific calendar they want to use in their OLTP.

In these cases, (more...)

ORA-10260: Limit size (1048576) of PGA heap set by event 10261 exceeded

| Jun 8, 2015

ISSUE:
Customer is using BI Custom Report, which use to work fine before, but with time due to on-going requirements, Customer added more functionality and the code becomes more complex SQL. The report in question is complex because the user requirements are complex and there is no obvious way of reducing complexity. And not only that, but these BI Custom Report is now throwing "PGA Heap Size Error".

The Impact of Training: Getting to the Finish Line

It has been said before and it will always ring true: many factors can contribute to the success or failure of an IT project. A popular misconception tells us that training is a luxury ill-afforded during lean economic times, but can you really afford not to train with technologies changing at a speed resembling that of a NASCAR race? Another question: What does it take to get ahead of the pace car?

The Little Known Business Value of Wearables


Many of us have been tracking the progress of wearable adoption (no pun intended) and have share the same reaction: Why???? Or, even worse: That’s just creepy. From a lifestyle perspective wearables such as smartglasses, smartwatchs, and smartrings seem to offer little more than what we currently enjoy via our smartphones.

With that said, innovative companies continue to prove that, if we can imagine it, we can build it. Think Dick Tracy's 2-way wrist (more...)

Oracle Partners ♥ APIs for PaaS and IoT User Experience
