ADF 12c – Allow user to personalize the form items at run time using MDS based Change Persistence

The requirement is easily written down: the web page contains a form with multiple form items. Each user should be allowed to personalize the form at run time. This personalization entails the ability to hide and show form items. When user has decided to hide and show specific items – this decision should be persisted across sessions so that when the user logins at a later date, the form items she has hidden are still (more...)

Searching Oracle Service Bus Pipeline Alert contents

There are several ways monitor messages passing through the Service Bus. Using pipeline alerts is one of them. Pipeline alerts can be searched in the Enterprise Manager based on several parameters such as summary or when they have occurred. Usually an important part of the message payload is saved in the content of the alert. This content can not be searched from the Enterprise Manager. In this post I will provide an example for logging (more...)

Kwaliteit in dienstverlening is een zaak van perceptie

Kwaliteit in dienstverlening is een zaak van perceptie. Het gaat over voldoen aan verwachtingen. Het imago van een organisatie, verhalen van referenten, persoonlijke informatie-uitwisseling met account managers en de inhoudelijk betrokkenen spelen allemaal een rol. Deze elementen in combinatie met persoonlijke ervaringen vormen een verwachtingspatroon. Een verwachtingspatroon dat bij iedere stakeholder anders is. Net zoals de wijze waarop de uitvoering van de dienstverlening wordt ervaren. Daarbij komt dat verwachtingen niet altijd expliciet worden uitgesproken of (more...)

Data Integrator

My first experiences with ThreadLogic

A while ago I came into touch with ThreadLogic. Most of the people whom I was talking about it, did not know the tool. This unfamiliarity with ThreadLogic made me decide to write this blog. I think that every WebLogic Administrator should know ThreadLogic and that it is also a very interesting tool for Fusion Middleware Developers.

But let me start at the beginning. A while ago Michael Sahadat, a SOA/Integration Architect at Oracle, came over to (more...)

OAUX Emerging Technologies RD&D Strategy

Speaking of strategies, Misha (@mishavaughan) asked me to write up an article–not a post, there’s a difference–describing how this team goes about its business, i.e. researching, designing and developing solutions for the emerging technologies that will affect our users in the near and not-so-near future.


You can, and should, read the resulting article over at the mothership, Usableapps (@usableapps). Check it out:

Donderdag 16 april/Thursday April 16th – Speedy Joe’s – Using asynchronous interaction in Java EE to turn the world’s slowest restaurant into a super performant place

De Java SIG (Special Interest Group) van AMIS organiseert op donderdag 16 april een bijeenkomst (publiek toegankelijk) over asynchrone interacties in Java EE (web) applicaties. Synchrone interacties in de echte wereld en in IT applicaties kunnen de boel behoorlijk ophouden. Synchroon betekent wachten – en resources vasthouden. Dat kan een probleem vormen voor schaalbaarheid en performance. In deze sessie leer je dit probleem te tackelen.

Some tips on creating, editing and manipulating and merging MP4 video files

Over the last few days, I have spent quite some time on creating several videos, demonstrating the use of technology. Creating this videos took a lot of time – especially the final step: merging five MP4 files together. This article provides some very brief pointers.

First of all, I have used SnagIt to create the initial screen-cams. Recent releases of SnagIt (note: this is not a free tool, although it is good value for its (more...)

Awesome Oracle ERP Cloud on Apple Watch design concepts. For more information see: A Glance at Smartwatches in the Enterprise: A Moment in Time Experience.

Are We Ready for the Apple Watch?

So, apparently Apple is launching a watch soon, which has people asking us, i.e. Oracle Applications User Experience (@usableapps), what our strategy is for the watch of watches.

If you read here, you probably already know we’ve been looking at smart watchessuper watches, and wearables of all kinds for a few years. So, the strategy is already in place.

Combine version control (SVN) and issue management (JIRA) to improve traceability

Version control and bug tracking systems are found in almost every software development project. Both contain information on release content. In version control, it is usual (and a best practice) to supply an issue number when code is checked in. Also it allows identification of code which is in a release (by looking at release branches). Issue management allows providing metadata to issues such as the fix release and test status. This is usually what (more...)

Demonstration of Oracle Stream Explorer for live device monitoring – collect, filter, aggregate, pattern match, enrich and publish

This article describes a use case for Oracle Stream Explorer – Oracle’s business user friendly interface on top of OEP – Oracle Event Processor. We assume a large number of devices – such as printers, copiers, sensors, detectors, coffee machines – spread across the globe – and the cloud.


All devices continuously report their status, by sending a message every other second that contains their device identifier, a code that can indicate the healthy status (more...)

Creating and scaling Dynamic Clusters using wlst

In my previous article, Creating and scaling Dynamic Clusters in Weblogic 12c, I described the creation and scaling of Dynamic Clusters. I used the Weblogic Console to create the Dynamic Clusters and change the number of servers.

Most of the time you will use some wlst scripting to create and manage your Weblogic environments.
In this article I will show you how to create Dynamic Clusters en how you can scale them.

The example (more...)

Four Weeks with the Basis Peak

Right after I finished wearing the Nike+ Fuelband for three weeks, I moved straight on to another wearable device, the Basis Peak.

The Peak falls into a category Ultan (@ultan, @usableapps) calls the “super watch,” a term that nicely differentiates watches like the Peak (and the Fitbit Surge) from fitness bands (e.g. Jawbone UP24, Nike+ Fuelband, Fitbit Flex), smartwatches (e.g. Android Wear, (more...)

Use Oracle Stream Explorer and the Service Execution Reporter policy to analyze service behavior – find too-late-closing flights on Saibot Airport

This article shows how using the Service Execution Reporting policy – first introduced in this article: – and the bridge created from the reporter through JMS to Stream Explorer – demonstrated in this article: – we can create a business monitor. The reports on service executions can be interpreted in a functional way to produce business insight.

In this article we will specifically monitor airplanes at the gate – (more...)
