WebLogic Update @ Voxxed Days Istanbul

| Jul 29, 2015

It's relatively rare Java focused conferences have clearly WebLogic centric sessions. This is understandable as conference organizers must carefully balance between education, vendor-neutrality, sharing useful information and outright sales pitches. The distinction is very tenuous and historically frequently abused at Java conferences. As a result Java conference organizers (and attendees) often choose to err on the side of caution and avoid content focused on commercial products (note that while WebLogic is beyond a doubt a (more...)

Social hiring is BIG, but mobile recruiting promises to be even BIGGER.

Modern Finance: The Swiss Army Knife CFO


The CFO often must be the most multifunctional tool in the executive office.

And I mean ‘tool’ as ‘a device used to carry out a particular function’ (not the urban slang definition). The CFO’s I interact with are multi-learned, multi-talented, multi-skilled. That’s because their responsibilities typically go well beyond finance, most often to overseeing IT and HR functions.

Maintenir le JAVA de votre manager ASR à jour

Le manager 5.x supporte Java 7 et Java 8.
Il n'y a plus de développement autour de Java 7, plus de correction de bug, c'est pourquoi je vous recommande vivement d'utiliser Java 8, et de le maintenir à jour.
Comme l'upgrade de java est extrêmement simple et sans risque, je pense qu'il est raisonnable de mettre Java à jour sur une base trimestrielle.

Cette procédure est valide pour un manager ASR en version 5. (more...)

Optimizing the PL/SQL Challenge VII: Removing Function Calls

Waaaay back in the first entry in this series we tuned one of the queries on the PL/SQL Challenge. The index we created improved its performance significantly. This missed the bigger picture however.

The query was embedded in a PL/SQL function. The main SQL statement on the Library page called this function. We could still make noticeable performance gains by extracting the query out of PL/SQL and placing it directly in the main select.

Why?

ORAchk – How to log SRs and ERs for ORAchk

ORAchkI have recently recommended to use ORAchk in its new version 12.1.0.4 - and I can just emphasize on this.
