Stories Are the Best, Plus News on Nest!

Friend of the ‘Lab, Kathy (@usableapps), has been using Storify for a while now to compile easy-to-consume, erm, stories about the exploits of Oracle Applications User Experience.

You might remember Storify from past stories such as the In the U.K.: Special events and Apps 14 with UKOUG and Our OpenWorld 2014 Journey.

Anyway, Kathy has a new story, The Internet of Things and the Oracle user experience, which just so (more...)

BPM 12c BundelPatch1: InitiatorTask problem

 Last week we installed the new "SOA Bundle Patch 12.1.3.0.1 (Patch)" (19707784).
 Applying the patch went fine, no problem at all.

We have a process that is initiated by an Initiator Task, that can be started, I'm sure you're familiar with, using the link under 'Applications'. In our case, however, clicking it gives an exception in stead of opening the Task Form:

Unfortunately I have a Dutch version of (more...)

SOA Suite 12c: In-depth look into Managed File Transfer (1/3)

With the release of SOA Suite 12c a new product was revealed. The first sighting was at Oracle OpenWorld 2013. On the Fusion Middleware Demo Grounds there was a demo shown where B2B was integrated with a product called Managed File Transfer (shortened as MFT). At that same conference I gave a presentation about this product together with the product manager of MFT, Dave Berry. This blog gives an in-depth look into (more...)

Oracle SOA Suite 12c: The Coherence Adapter

Oracle SOA Suite 12c ships with a new technology adapter, the Oracle CoherenceAdapter. This adapter allows easy integration with a Coherence Data Grid (a distributed cache). The excellent post by Antony Reynolds provides the information required to setup your Coherence cache and get started with the adapter. In this blog post I will describe a pattern which can be used to use Coherence Data Grid as a cache for a database table (or view, or…). (more...)

BusinessTown

Maybe you remember Busytown, Richard Scarry’s famous town, from your childhood or from reading it to your kids.

Tony Ruth has created the Silicon Valley equivalent, BusinessTown, (h/t The Verge) populated by the archetypes we all know and sometimes love. What do the inhabitants of BusinessTown do? “What Value-Creating Winners Do All Day,” natch.

Mash up Oracle Cloud Application Web Services with Web APIs and HTML5 APIs

No more an “honorary” but now a full-blown member of the AppsLab team, I gave a presentation at the Chicago & Dubai Oracle Usability Advisory Board in November on REST and Web APIs and how they can facilitate the transition from on-premise software to cloud-based solutions (the content of which can be fodder for a future post).

As we all are transitioning from on-premise implementations to cloud-based solutions, there seems to be a growing fear among customers and partners (ISV, OEM) (more...)

Dowsing for Smarties

Editor’s note: John and Noel (@noelportugal) need to chat about Google’s Physical Web gBeacons.

I have been a tad skeptical about the usefulness of smart watches, but my colleague Julia Blyumen has changed my thinking.

Woodblock of dowserIn her recent blog post, Julia noted that a smart watch could become both a detector and a universal remote control for all IoT “smart things”. She backed this up with a link to an excellent academic paper (pdf) (more...)

Samenwerking is de oplossing voor het gebrek aan goede IT’ers

Paul Uijtewaal

Paul Uijtewaal, Directeur AMIS

Afgelopen week was er een levendige discussie over het oplopende gebrek aan goed opgeleide IT’ers, een gebrek dat zowel voor de aantallen geldt als ook een gebrek als het gaat over de kennis die ze vanuit de opleiding mee krijgen. Hierbij ging het vooral over de net afstuderende van IT opleidingen. Kan voor de oplettende IT’er en werkgever in deze markt geen verrassing zijn, al jaren is er in ieder geval (more...)

BPM12c Quickstart invalid oramds url

In a BPM process that starts an Adaptive Case Management Case, I tried to create an XSL based on the Case.xsd that is found in the oramds. I choose the input of the startCase message of the wsdl of the ACM Case.

But I kept running into the following message:
Invalid url: oramds:/soa/shared/casemgmt/Case.xsd
java.lang.IllegalStateException: Invalid url: oramds:/soa/shared/casemgmt/Case.xsd

I tested this in both a WIndows and a Linux (under VirtualBox) installation. (more...)

BPM12c: Patch for ‘ora:getAttachmentProperty: Failed to decode properties string ‘

Last december I reported running into a problem getting attachments and attachments properties in this blog-post. I created a Service Request for it and last week it resulted in a one-off patch:

  • Patch 18511990 VITAL INFORMATION LOST WHEN RECEIVING EMAILS WITH CONTENT-TYPE MULTIPART/RELATED (Patch)
Because there are multiple versions available for download, you should make sure to download the appropriate version; in my case it was 12.1.3.


Adaptive Case Mgt: Cleanup cases without Flow-Instances

Recently we encountered problems with cases that are related to a composite that somehow got corrupted in the MDS. This was possibly due to a failing deployment, which suggests a bug, since you don't want to have composite artifacts of an earlier version removed only after a succesful deployment of the new version.

The particular composite was listed in the deployed composites list, but it lacked the artifacts and therefor marked as invalid. Using the (more...)

Dear Julia: SmartWatch Habits and Preferences

Julia’s recent post about her experiences with the Samsung Gear watches triggered a lively conversation here at the AppsLab. I’m going to share my response here and sprinkle in some of Julia’s replies.  I’ll also make a separate post about the interesting paper she referenced.

Dear Julia,

You embraced the idea of the smart watch as a fully functional replacement for the smart phone (nicely captured by your Fred Flintstone image). I am on the other end (more...)

Upgrade OVM 3.2 to 3.3

Lately several people asked me how they should go about with upgrading their OVM 3.2.x environment to 3.3.x
They have the backend repository running on an Oracle Database, which is no longer supported. In release 3.3, only MySQL is supported as a backend repository database.
They were wondering how the migration process will take place.
Furthermore the documentation states that there is only one way to upgrade the OVM Server (more...)
