Compose end to end tracing, logging and monitoring with ECID set from WebLogic in Database (exposed in V$SESSION)

The title of this blog is unfashionably long – and really says it all. The ECID (Execution Context ID) that is used in Fusion Middleware to identify a conversation across components in one or more WebLogic servers can be used to trace that conversation into the database. When an HTTP requests enter the FMW world, the ECID is established and when that request causes various components – such as ADF, Service Bus, SOA Composite – (more...)

Connecting two laptops (and a Virtual Box VM) for the purpose of a live demo using Personal Hotspot on Smart Phone

During the Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum in Budapest (March 2015), Luc Bors and myself are presenting a live demo with Luc developing a mobile application (using MAF) that consumes REST services that are published on my laptop from within a Virtual Box VM that runs Oracle SOA Suite.

Our challenge for this live demo was: how to make the services exposed in the VM available to Luc’s laptop?

Our solution – based on (more...)

Preparation for Live Mobile Hacking with an OFM 12c red stack – Budapest 2015

On March 4th, I am to present – together with ADF and Mobile Application Framework expert Luc Bors – a live development demo session at the EMEA Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Forum in Budapest, Hungary.

It all started in the Fall as Jürgen Kress, responsible (more...)

This rate remained rock solid for the last couple of years, but Oracle has decided to change this rate at February 3th, 2015.

Security Features of Standard Edition (One) – Part 1

License costs was one thing where many IT-managers put their question marks and so often the decision was made to downgrade the Oracle database back to Standard Edition.

Continuous Delivery kan niet zonder rust in IT omgeving

IT blijft een interessant vakgebied. De verveling lijkt nooit toe te kunnen slaan en zeker geen grip te krijgen op de mensen die in deze wereld werken. Dit komt vooral door de constante beweging, de hang naar verandering en de blijkbaar onuitputtelijke noodzaak om het anders en beter te doen.

Wie durft over te slaan?

Automatic: Nice, but Not Necessary

Editor’s note: Here’s the first post from one of our newish team members, Ben. Ben is a usability engineer with a PhD in Cognitive Psychology, and by his own account, he’s also a below average driver. Those two factoids are not necessarily related; I just don’t know what his likes and dislikes are so I’m spit-balling.

Ben applied his research chops to himself and his driving using Automatic (@automatic), a doodad that measures (more...)

Concurrentievoordeel door Identity- en Access Management

Elke organisatie maakt gebruik van Identity- en Acces Management (IAM/IDM). Dit is een van de basis elementen van goede informatiebeveiliging.
