Resolving deployment issues with Service Bus 12c – OSB-398016 – Error loading WSDL

I was completely stuck with Service Bus 12c project deployment from JDeveloper to the Service Bus run time. Every deployment met with the same fate: Conflicts found during publish – OSB-398016, Error loading the WSDL from the repository:  The WSDL is not semantically valid: Failed to read wsdl file from url due to — java.net.MalformedURLException: Unknown protocol: servicebus.

I was completely lost and frustrated – not even a simple hello_world could make it (more...)

How Accurate Are Wearables for Running? Why Not Test It for Real?

How accurate are wearable devices for fitness? And does it matter?

There’s a lot of research out there to suggest there are issues with actual accuracy of what’s being recorded, and variances between different devices and what they measure too. If you use different fitness bands simultaneously you will no doubt have noticed some of this.

I’m a runner, and into tracking and measuring stuff, so I decided to test out my own wearables and (more...)

Rapid creation of Virtual Machine(s) for SOA Suite 12.1.3 server run time environment – leveraging Vagrant, Puppet and Biemond

imageIn recent previous articles I have discussed the use of Vagrant and Puppet for the automated creation of Virtual Machines, for example with various Oracle software components completely installed into them. In this article, I am merely the consumer of goodies. Edwin Biemond published on GitHub the complete set of Vagrant and Puppet configuration files for creating VMs with the SOA Infra database (Oracle Database 11.2.0.4, populated with the RCU installer) and (more...)

Complément : Réduction du temps de patching OMS


Depuis quelques semaines, la nouvelle version d' Oracle Enterprise Manager (12.1.0.4) ainsi que les bundle patches pour OMS sont disponibles.
Si vous prévoyez de d'appliquer ces patches et que la problématique d'arrêt de service vous concerne, il est désormais possible de réduire le temps d'arrêt.
Le document intitulé "Reducing Downtime While Patching Multi-OMS Environments" contient les instructions et les étapes pour cela.

Fastest way to a Virtual Machine with JDeveloper 12.1.3 and Oracle Database XE 11gR2 – on Ubuntu Linux 64 bit

In a previous article I have explained in quite a bit of detail how to create the Vagrant and Puppet scripts for stamping out a Virtual Box VM with Oracle Database XE 11gR2 and JDeveloper 12.1.3 (with ADF 12.1.3) on top of Ubuntu (64bit Linux): http://technology.amis.nl/2014/07/29/creating-automated-jdeveloper-12-1-3-oracle-xe-11gr2-environment-provisioning-using-vagrant-and-puppet/. If you want to learn a little more about Vagrant and Puppet, that might be an interesting read. However, if you do not (more...)

Creating automated JDeveloper 12.1.3 & Oracle XE 11gR2 environment provisioning – using Vagrant and Puppet

Standing on the shoulders of many smart and persistent friends, peers and colleagues, I was able to fairly quickly concoct the Vagrant and Puppet configuration that allows automated provisioning of a VirtualBox VM that runs Ubuntu (64bit Linux) with Oracle Database XE 11gR2 and JDeveloper 12.1.3 (with ADF 12.1.3). With a few command line actions, the creation of a clean and preconfigured VM is done in the background. image

A Smart Holster for Law Enforcement

So, back in January, Noel (@noelportugal) took a team of developers to the AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon in Las Vegas.

Although they didn’t win, the built some very cool stuff, combining Google Glass, Philips Hue, Internet of Things, and possibly a kitchen sink in there somewhere, into what can only be described as a smart holster. You know, for guns.

You read that right. This project was way out of our usual wheelhouse, which (more...)

Teradata bought Hadapt and Revelytix

My client Teradata bought my (former) clients Revelytix and Hadapt.* Obviously, I’m in confidentiality up to my eyeballs. That said — Teradata truly doesn’t know what it’s going to do with those acquisitions yet. Indeed, the acquisitions are too new for Teradata to have fully reviewed the code and so on, let alone made strategic decisions informed by that review. So while this is just a guess, I conjecture Teradata won’t say anything concrete (more...)

ADF Performance Monitor: Measuring Slow Network Time

Recently I was implementing the ADF Performance Monitor at a customer site and doing a detailed performance analysis. This customer had severe (and less severe) performance problems but was unable to pinpoint the exact pain points. Frequently, end-users were complaining because they were experiencing first a very good performance (response times less than a second), and then suddenly experiencing a drop in performance for a certain period of time (an hour or so) with response times between five to twenty seconds.

SCOTUX: Cell Phones Important Feature of Human Anatomy

If there’s anyone out there still hoping to close a deal or impress customers with a message about how “mobile is a game changer”, then the words of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) might clarify just how outdated such positioning is:

Cellphones “are now such a pervasive and insistent part of daily life that the proverbial visitor from Mars might conclude they were an important feature of (more...)
