Just finished up at the Dublin Websummit 2014 (Disclosure: I was there as part of the Websummit’s Global Blog Network program).
A hectic three days for sure. Lots to see and hear. Really.
Here’s what I really liked. And, what I didn’t. Bear in mind I didn’t get around to everything, so YMMV with how well this resonates with your experience*.
Websummit pass. Obtained as part of the Global Blog Network program. You can (more...)

When Oracle Exalogic is delivered in you data center and you implemented Exalogic as a virtual platform, the Exalogic Guest Base Template (EGBT) is based on Oracle Linux 5.8. On Exalogic you can update the template to Oracle Linux 5.10. As of 21 october the new Exalogic base template is on Oracle Linux 6.5. The Oracle Linux 6.5 template for virtual platforms is available for download via Patch 19376316. The new template (more...)
Jawbone announced the Up3 today, reportedly its most advanced fitness tracker to date.
As with all fitness trackers, the Up3 has an accelerometer, but it also has sensors for measuring skin and ambient temperature, as well as something called bioimpedence. As these data collected by the Up3 are used by a new feature called Smart Coach.
You can imagine what the Smart Coach does. It sounds like a cool, possibly creepy, feature.

An important part of a release process is storing artifacts in an artifact repository. Many customers use custom implementations of artifact repositories (such as file shares in combination with custom scripts) but there are also products which offer many functions of such a repository (and probably many more) out of the box so that custom implementations are not necessary any more. Nexus is an example of a popular artifact repository. An added benefit of using (more...)
Yesterday, I had an OSB consulting day at a customer. We looked into a REST service that was to be extended with update functionality. Since calling an update service of an EIS (Enterprise Information System) can go wrong with all sorts of errors, it is important to be able to return a fault-message with the errors, jason format.
Now in OSB12c it's very apparent how you define possible fault-messages and even how the should be (more...)
A few weeks ago I did a BPM12c Quickstart Installation under Oracle Linux 6. Everything went smoothly, as described in the install guide as well as on many blogs already.
But I found that most of those blogs did an installation under Windows, where I did it under Oracle Linux in Virtualbox.
You would think (as I did) that it shouldn't matter. However, it turns out that in JDeveloper I was missing the 'BPM Application' (more...)
I have both the Google Glass and Android Wear (Samsung Gear Live, Moto 360), and often times I wear them together. People always come up with a question: “How do you compare Google Glass and Android watches?”. Let me address couple of the view points here. I would like to talk about Apple Watch, but since it has not been officially released yet, lets say that shape-wise it is square and (more...)
When you want to do demo-ing or perform the BPM12c workshops on a BPM12c QuickStart developers installation you'll need the Oracle BPM Demo User community. You know: with Charles Dickens, John Steinbeck and friends.
How to do so, you can find on the page following this link
. You'll need the demo-community scripting that can be found following this link
, and then download 'workflow-001-DemoCommunitySeedApp
However, besides adapting the build.properties file, there are (more...)

Texas Delivers Citizen Services in Secure Cloud
The first US state to deliver a complete portfolio of citizen services in the Cloud, Texas is the leader in Open Government. With a "my government, my way" promise, Texas relies on Oracle to help 30+ agencies deliver services to nearly 30M citizens. This is a brief video
on how Texas accomplished this.
One of the new announcements on OpenWorld 2014 is the generic Alta UI. The Oracle product teams have worked hard to apply this new UI to all their products. This new interface theme is the result of Oracles efforts towards a more usable and comprehensible User Experience by the Oracle Usability Labs.
The deliverables of the Oracle Usability Labs are applied to all new products. This is a major change in the UX strategy of Oracle. (more...)
If you’ve read here for more than a hot minute, you’ll know that I love me some data visualization.
This love affair dates back to when Paul (@ppedrazzi) pointed me to Hans Rosling’s (@hansrosling) first TED talk. I’m sure Hans has inspired an enormous city of people by now, judging by the 8 million plus views his TED talk has garnered. Sure, those aren’t unique view, but even so.
There’s an interesting (more...)
SOA Suite 12c introduced a number of new adapters. One of them is the LDAP Adapter. In several earlier articles on this blog (for example http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/08/oracle-soa-suite-12c-ldapadapter-tutorial/ by Maarten Smeets), we have described how to set up and configure the LDAP adapter and how to use it in conjunction with the ApacheDS open source LDAP directory. Of course, this adapter is also supported with Microsoft Active Directory and Oracle’s OID, OVD and OUD.
My colleague Maarten Smeets recently published a very good article on the first steps with the SOA Suite 12c LDAP adapter (http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/08/oracle-soa-suite-12c-ldapadapter-tutorial). He inspired me to take my own first and next steps – and I need those for the Oracle SOA Suite 12c Handbook that I am currently writing. My very first step in this area was the installation and configuration of ApacheDS server on Linux and the ApacheDS Directory (more...)
Inspired by the work and some excellent blog articles by my colleague Maarten Smeets – and while writing about the LDAP Adapter in SOA Suite 12c for the Oracle SOA Suite 12c Handbook) I decided to give ApacheDS (LDAP Directory) a spin. This article lists the very basic steps for getting started with both the server side LDAP directory (on Linux) and the visual LDAP browser & editor on top that directory. A specific step (more...)
The Oracle Service Bus is often used for service virtualization. Endpoints are exposed on the Service Bus which proxy other services. Using such an abstraction layer can provide benefits such as (among many other things) monitoring/logging, dealing with different versions of services, throttling/error handling and result caching. In this blog I will provide a small (Java) script, which works for SOA Suite 11g and 12c, which determines exposed endpoints on the Service Bus.
A Human Task in SOA Suite can be configured to automatically escalate when the task is not taken care of for a certain period of time. This escalation implies that the task is assigned to the person (or persons) one level higher up the organizational hierarchy than the people who had gotten the task assigned originally.
In this article I will show very briefly a setup for the task definition and and the user & (more...)
