SOA Suite 12c: Getting started with the Spring Component

The Oracle SOA Suite Spring component has been present since SOA Suite 11.1.1.3 (11gR1 PS2). This component allows easy integration of Java code with other SOA Suite components such as (among others) BPEL, BPM and Business Rules. In SOA Suite 12c (12.1.3.0) this component is still present. In This blog post I will provide a short example on how it can be used and how the first problem I (more...)

Transformatie – Business done differently

AMIS is uit ruim 10.000 Oracle Specialized Partners verkozen tot Oracle EMEA Middleware partner van het jaar. Een geweldige bekroning van vele jaren hard werk. Gestart met een idee en via een veelheid aan activiteiten, tot optimale wasdom gekomen als Oracle specialist.

Vergelijk het met de transformatie van eitje via rups naar vlinder. Iedereen herkent deze transformatie waarbij het geplante ‘idee’, via een energieverslindende veelvraat tot iets moois leidt. De belangrijkste les hiervan is (more...)

ESP8266 – Cheap WiFi for your IoT

About a month ago, hackaday.com broke the news of a new Wifi chip called ESP8266 that costs about $5. This wireless system on a chip (SoC) took all the IoT heads (including me) by surprise. Until now if you wanted to integrate wifi to any DIY project you had to use more expensive solutions. To put this into perspective, my first wifi Arduino shield was about $99!

Oracle OpenWorld 2014: Non-life altering observations (but still interesting and useful)

This article does not necessarily discuss the big themes and major stories of Oracle OpenWorld 2014. It does mention a number of facts that I discovered, overheard, observed or otherwise found out about during last week’s conference. They are not necessarily from formal Oracle sources, they have have been part of conversations on the demo grounds or sessions for which no slide evidence exists. Do not base major decisions on these notes – but perhaps (more...)

iBeacons or The Physical Web?

For the past year at the AppsLab we have been exploring the possibilities of advanced user interactions using BLE beacons. A couple days ago, Google (unofficially) announced that one of their Chrome teams is working on what I’m calling the gBeacon. They are calling it the Physical Web (http://google.github.io/physical-web/).
This is how they describe it:

“The Physical Web is an approach to unleash the core superpower of the web: interaction on demand. People (more...)

Oracle Cloud demystified, Overview of Oracle Cloud offerings based on Open World 2014

The central theme of Oracle Open World 2014 has certainly been the Cloud. Downtown San Francisco was laced with banners about Oracle and Cloud. The difference compared to last year is that now there is a huge amount of real cloud products available (or soon to be launched). Where the Oracle cloud offering till this summer was limited to Database and Java (WebLogic) and some applications the current stack ranges from infrastructure till a range (more...)

Automatic error handling in AngularJS

In demos and tutorials we only care about the happy-flow of our applications. That is ok, because we only run that code in our own little predictable environment and leaving everything else out makes any framework look nice and easy. Often in blog posts “error handling and such is left as an exercise to the reader” (which of course is an exercise nobody needs). A problem with good error handling code is that it (more...)

Major take-aways from Oracle OpenWorld 2014 – some relevant conclusions

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 is over. Just under a week, full to the brim with information, events, people, energy, plans, hopes and expectations. I have learned many, many things. Small things, important facts, huge insights and many great people. In this article, I will attempt to sum up the largest themes of the conference as I have interpreted them. In subsequent publications, I will focus on some of them as well as discuss less grand but (more...)
