In a series of blog articles I will show how you can instrument your ADF Application key actions. Instrumenting gives visibility and insight of what is happening inside the ADF application and in the ADF framework (what methods and queries are executed, when and how often). These runtime diagnostics can be very effective in identifying and solving performance issues. This enables developers to diagnose and solve performance problems at an early stage and to build an (more...)

On Friday 7th of March, Bob Rubart interviewed both Jeremy Ashley and Lucas Jellema about trends in User Experience, the consequences of these trends – both in terms of opportunities as well as challenges – and the reasons why the UX Expo event on March 18th at AMIS HQ (Nieuwegein, The Netherlands) is going to be such a thrilling event.
After years of hounding from me, Noel (@noelportugal) made the jump to Android usage and development about a year ago. He started with a Nexus 7, the first generation one, but it wasn’t until he got a phone, the Moto X, that the transformation was complete.
So now, Noel is mixed ecosystem guy.
We’ve had Chromecasts since they were announced last year (they’re awesome), and with the recent release of the (more...)
In big projects hopefully testing the components of the system is a key point. When multiple teams are working on a project and each create services in there functional domain, you want the place the responsibility of these services with that software development team (SDT). Let’s talk in terms of a assembly line. If one team needs to integrate with a service of another team it should not have to wait for (more...)

About a month ago, I walked off a plane into the terminal at SJC. As I hiked that long walk to the exit, I heard a familiar and annoying sound, the Emergency Alert System sound.
The sound was muffled, and it took me a few more steps to realize it was my own phone bleating in my pocket. Somewhat embarrassed, I took it out and quickly dismissed the alert, which happened to be an AMBER (more...)

Robert Scoble (@scobleizer) told a Google Developer Group meetup recently about how the Ritz-Carlton Hotel near his home in Half Moon Bay, California offers a superb experience for guests by knowing more about them.
Years ago, such knowledge was mined from wastebaskets in guests’ rooms after they’d checked out. The evidence was matched with guest records. Next time they checked in, guests would be astounded to find their favorite candy bar already (more...)
After a presentation by Lucas Jellema I decided to try something with types in Oracle. One of the issues posed in this
presentation was that the type cannot self-reference. Neither direct nor indirect.
A table like the emp table cannot be expressed as an object type. The table has a column mgr which is a reference to another employee.
So I tried something like this:
TYPE emp_t AS OBJECT ( empno number(4) , ename (more...)
I am no Linux wizard by any standard. During the installation of some piece of Oracle software, I ran into a an error, indicating that my /tmp folder had too little space.
The installer was right about that. Unfortunately, the /tmp folder was on a device that I could not extend. So I tried to persuade the installer to use a different location for its temporary files:
export TEMP TMPDIR
Unfortunately, the installer (more...)

Ellison Honors Steve Jobs at Business Hall of Fame
This is very different than my usual technical posts, but I think it is very worthwhile. Be sure to watch the embedded video in the article to hear Larry give a touching tribute to his friend, Steve Jobs.
This year the 14th edition of the Oracle Partner Community Forum was held on the island of Malta from 17th till the 21st of Februari at the Hilton Hotel. I went there together with three other colleagues and this is my recap of the week.
This event took 4 days and was split in two parts. The first two days were spent on the conference itself and the last two days were spent on (more...)
