Node applications may want to have access to databases – similar to access to the file system, external APIs over HTTP and other resources. Just like Java applications use a JDBC driver to access a relational database, Node.js applications can leverage a database driver for the database they want to access. There is no standard for database drivers or for interacting with a relational database. There is no JDBC-like API. Working with different databases (more...)
Most developers have struggled with wires in SOA composites. You may find yourself in a situation where a wire has been deleted. Some missing wires are restored by JDeveloper. Other missing wires have to be added manually, by simply re-connecting the involved adapters and components. Simple.
Recently, I had a real life situation of missing wires. I had a conduit where there was no longer a wire inside. Normally, there is a wire inside (more...)
Austin, beautiful city with a river crossing downtown, music niche, young population, cycling, brisket and the home of SXSW, a big multicultural conference for all tastes; Film, Interactive and Music.
This was my first time attending the conference but Noel (@noelportugal), is a year-to-year attendee. It’s well known that this conference is not only a trampoline for small companies and startups to show off all the world what they are cooking up, (more...)
A quick one. In the past I used to generate ddl based on queries, like the following. But I find myself to re-invent them again. So to have it saved for my offspring: here's one on deleting obsolete columns as generated on importing an excel sheet in SQLDeveloper:
declare l_schema_name varchar2(30) := 'MY_SCHEMA'; l_table_name varchar2(30) := 'A_TABLE'; cursor c_cols is select column_name from all_tab_columns col where col.table_name = l_table_name and col.owner = l_schema_name (more...)
This is 2016, and seems this is the year for VR. Of course, we at the AppsLab can’t miss the beat!
While Osvaldo (@vaini11a) started to look into Unity based VR capability and prototype, I wanted to take a look into the WebVR based approach. The prospect of delivering VR experience in a browser, and over the web, suddenly makes VR so much more accessible – WebVR can be designed in a way to (more...)
More often than not, you will want your processes to interact with other services or processes inside or outside your enterprise. Since integration options are rather typical in Oracle Process Cloud Service, this article will help you to apply best practices for creating and managing your connections in a sustainable fashion.
Process Cloud integration points
Let’s say you have modelled a process in Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) for a private home loan application. Chances (more...)
BAM 12c is a huge improvement against 11g. Best thing I think is that it is quite a lot easier to create a dashboard. There are several tutorials on BAM, for instance at the BAM12c site, so I'm not going to explain how to create a dashboard here.
One thing however on business queries: the examples mostly start with a BPM process and then query from the Process of Activity Data Object as created (more...)
VR is big and is going to be really big for the game industry, and you could feel it in the air at the GDC 2016. For the first time, GDC added two days of VR development-focused events and sessions, and most of VR sessions were packed – the lines to the VR sessions were long, even 30 minutes before the sessions, and many people could be turned away. The venue for VR sessions had to be changed (more...)
We are still in the early days of virtual reality. Just as in the early days of manned flight, this is a time of experimentation.
Current VR experiments resemble early manned flight experiments
What do we wear on our heads? Helmets? Goggles? Contact lenses? Or do we simply walk into a cave or dome or tank? What do we wear or hold in our hands? Game controllers? Wands? Glowing microphones? Bracelets, armbands, and rings? (more...)
Tawny (@iheartthannie) and I attended the 30th Edition of GDC – Game Developers Conference. As shown in the Tawny’s daily posts, there were lots of fun events, engaging demos, and interesting sessions, that we simply could not cover them all. With 10 to 30 sessions going on at any time slots, I wished to have multiple “virtual mes” to attend some of them simultaneously. However, with only one “real me,” I still managed (more...)
I’ve been doing this job for various different organizations at Oracle for nine years now, and we’ve always existed on the fringe. So, having our own home for content within the Oracle.com world is a major deal, further underlining Oracle’s increased investment in and emphasis on innovation.
I just boarded on my flight back to Amsterdam and I'd grab a chance to put down my first impressions of this week.
Apart from catching a flu, it was a great event. As could be expected the word describing the weather fenomena I'm about to enter resonates throughout the whole event. (For those who didn't catch my vague description: it's 'Cloud, Cloud, Cloud).
One of the presenters put that Oracle needs to go for (more...)
When I first came to GDC, I didn’t know what to expect. I was delightfully surprised to use my first gender neutral restroom. The restroom had urinals and toilet seats. There was no fuss other than others who were standing to take a picture of the sign above. It felt surreal using the restroom next to a stranger who was not the same gender as I. The idea is a positive new way of thinking (more...)
As many people probably did, I upgraded my laptop to Windows 10. Actually after that I re-installed even windows 10, since I installed an SSD drive (a Samsung EVO 850, which is really fast).
Earlier I wrote about installing SOA/BPM QuickstartInstaller, using silent install. All goes well, but where in 12.1.3 you actually can succesfully create a domain, with 12.2.1 you can't. I don't know why I got it working with (more...)
It’s official. All demos are booked for the week. Anyone not on the list is subjected to the standby line. I was lucky enough to score a 5:30pm demo for Bullet Train at the NVIDIA booth early this morning. When I walked by the line late in the evening, I found out that a lady had been waiting for at least an hour for her turn in the line. (more...)
