With dozens of ADF/Forms/Mobile/Cloud sessions planned for Oracle OpenWorld 2014, choosing which to attend can easily become an overwhelming task. Since I can relate to the chaos that occurs leading up to OOW each year, I thought I would make your lives a little easier by sharing my top ten picks of sessions to attend this year. (And to be frank it took me almost 4 days). Life requires too many decisions as it is, so (more...)
Now finally after a long period of waiting - and looking presentations and reading blogs I was able to do In-Memory databasing on my own. Having sampled some theoretical background how a a pure In-Memory Db works with SAP HANA; my expectations on the Oracle In-Memory Option were high. Also because Oracle promised it would work without code change, out of the box.
The Oracle database is located on Sun Solaris Machine (more...)

Somebody asked how to put PostgreSQL on my Fedora image with Oracle Database 11g and MySQL. It’s fairly simple. You can check for the current download at yum.postgresql.org and then download it like this as the
yum localinstall http://yum.postgresql.org/9.3/fedora/fedora-20-x86_64/pgdg-fedora93-9.3-1.noarch.rpm
You should see the following output when the download is (more...)
Both jQuery and Font Awesome are standard included with APEX5 (still in early adopter). With a little bit of jQuery you can create an animated button that reflects that it is doing something in the background.
For this example I created a button "Text + Icon button". Simply drag and drop this in the Page Designer.
The Icon CSS Class: "fa-play-circle-o"
and the action: "Defined by Dynamic Action"
For the Dynamic Action: it should respond (more...)
create table ...clustering by linear order (col1)
Almost two years ago, I wrote a little blog on how to trigger a Dynamic Action from a report. You can find that blog right here.
Things have changed with APEX5 (which is currently still in "early adaptor 2") which allow you to do this in a more clean way (or at least I think so). No need to create a "fake link" so the user know that the icon is clickable. No need to (more...)
|Larry Ellison 1978|
While I admit I'm far removed from the reality of the situation, I find it a little amusing how it's been deemed as a 'shake up' when a few paragraphs before he's quoted as saying this (referring to new co-CEOs)
“I am going to continue to do what I have been doing (more...)
At Oracle OpenWorld 2014, the company will roll out its new Database Cloud Service — a new multi-tenant database-as-a-service offering that will let customers migrate their existing apps and databases to the cloud “with the push of a button,” said Ellison. Data will be compressed ten to one and encrypted for secure and efficient transfer to the cloud, with no reprogramming. “Every single Oracle feature — even our latest high-speed in-memory processing — is included in (more...)
This book took me much longer to write than I initially anticipated - and to be fair, that's the reason for staying quiet at the blog. I just didn't have time/energy to write everywhere :-) Although, it was fun writing - (more...)
My application normally responds to button clicks with sub-second performance, but there were a few operations where users can initiate quite long-running transactions (e.g. up to 15 seconds long in one case where it was hitting an eBus interface thousands of times).
When the user clicks the button, I want the page to show a “Please Wait” message with an animated running indicator (I won’t call it a “progress bar” even though it looks (more...)
During a trial run for my presentation at Oracle Open World "Oracle 12c for Developers", you can find the slides on slideshare. there was a question regarding "Temporal Validity".
What is Temporal Validity?
The documentation says it best:
Temporal Validity Support lets you associate one or more valid time dimensions with a table and have data be visible depending on its time-based validity, as determined by the start and end dates or time stamps of (more...)
This is very easy to accomplish with a Hidden item and a Dynamic Action.
First the Master Report, for this example I am using the DEPT table:

Simple requirement – I’ve got a CLOB (e.g. after exporting an application from Apex from the command line) that I want to examine, and I’m running my script on my local client so I can’t use UTL_FILE to write it to a file. I just want to spit it out to DBMS_OUTPUT.
Strangely enough I couldn’t find a suitable working example on the web for how to do this, so wrote my own version. (more...)
