Humantask Assignment: Assignment with Dynamic Approval Group

This blog post is part of a series of posts about humantask assignment. You can find the starting point of this series by following the next link.

This post gives an example of task assignment with a Dynamic Approval Group. I will use the same BPM process as in most of the other posts.
The implementation of the Dynamic Approval Group is done in a custom java class that implements the IDynamicApprovalGroup interface.

Roxanne, You Don’t Have to Put On Your Google Glass

What intimidates others most about Google Glass? Undoubtedly, it’s the camera staring them in the face as you walk by or converse with someone.

Here’s how (so, I am told)  SXSWers were seen wearing their Glass to prevent such fear and anxiety. Selfies were taken in Amsterdam as I walked back to my hotel passing red light districts nearby.

Interesting example of stakeholders and user requirements.

OSB 11g For-each: is index variable an integer?

In OSB you can add a for-each construct to loop over a set of elements:
OSB For-each
Today I encountered something strange with the index variable of the for-each. At one stage I wanted to select an element based on the index-variable, in the screendump above it is 'functieIndex'.
The xpath expression I created was something like:
But although I checked the value of the variable functieIndex using alerts, I always got the complete set (more...)

Milestone for the Java platform – The Release of Java 8


This is an important moment for Java. The general availability of Java 8 – more specifically of Java 8 SE, Embedded, (and shortly ME as well) and FX (and in the wake of all this the Hotspot JVM and NetBeans 8.0). This release is about language evolution certainly – with Lambda expressions and the Stream API as clear highlights. But it is about much more. It is as if Java went through a mid-life (more...)

JDeveloper 11gR1 XSL Mapper annoyances

I've been working with the JDeveloper 11gR1 XSL Mapper for years. And I think I became quite handy with it. I find it a great, impressing tool, since you can actually drag and drop pretty much everything together. When you draw a line, you can drop a function on it. When you think a little about the sequence of drag&drops you can tie up a pretty complex logical expression together. However, there are a few (more...)

Hands-Free Wearables: The User Experience Lesson

I’m a keen runner. I have a dog too.  And now I have a wearable tech way to combine my running requirements with dog exercise time that also illustrates what user experience (UX) is really about.

I use Google Glass with Strava Run Glassware for the digital part of run task. I use a Stunt Puppy running leash for connecting myself to the dog  safely as crank those miles out together. Yes, that’s a (more...)

Simple Is As Simple Swipes: Oracle Applications Cloud Release 8

The premise of the Oracle  Applications Cloud Release 8 Simplified UI (the new entry experience for Oracle Sales Cloud and Oracle HCM Cloud users) is, well… simple. It’s simple to use, simple to build, and it’s simple to sell the UX message too.


Simplified UIs for Release 8 ready to be put in the hands of the audience. The problem’s getting it back as they want to discover more! (Image: Michael LaDuke, Oracle America, (more...)

Run XQuery with XqlPlus

I started today with setting up an OSB training and figuring out how to run XQuery scripts outside of OSB. I looked into the (ok a little dated) book: Oracle Database 10g XML&SQL, that I have in my library. In that book there's also a chapter about XQuery. And it shows that the Oracle XDK has a XQuery processer, but also a commandline tool like SQLPLus: XQLPlus. It is in the xquery jar, but (more...)

OTN article: Speedy Perception trumps Speed Reception – on Smart Asynchronous Interactions in multi layered architectures

The Oracle Technology Network has just published my article on asynchronous interactions used in multi-layered architectures to free up resources and create at least the perception of speedy processing. This article describes how, by leveraging opportunities for asynchronous processing, at least the perceived responsiveness of our systems is likely to improve. Frequently, the actual scalability is also enhanced by making much better use of the parallel processing power of today’s CPUs and virtual machines and (more...)
