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...)
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...)
Last few days I spent with describing a Throttle mechanism using the DB Adapter. Today the 'Distributed Polling' functionality of the DB Adapter was mentioned to me, which uses the SKIP LOCKED clausule of the database.
On one of the pages you'll get to check the 'Distributed Polling' option:
Leave it like it is, since it adds the 'SKIP LOCKED' option in the 'FOR UPDATE' clausule.
In my example screendump I set the Database Rows (more...)
End of last november I wrote about the BPM 12cR2 quickstart download, describing that the links weren't updated. For a new install I did a new download and found that in the meantime the links are updated. You can download the quickstart here.
A few weeks ago I wrote a little script to do a silent install of SOA/BPM QuickStart. Yesterday I enhanced the script to also do an automatic install of Java and adapt the environment settings to have the JDeveloper settings specific placed in C:DataJDeveloperSOA.
To run the script you should have the following files placed in one folder (for instance c:tempsoabpm):
Download the jdk-8u65-windows-x64.exe from here. If you use another version adapt the script (more...)
The Vector Watch is a British design, with development and product offices in Bucharest and Palo Alto. It looks awesome, something that can be worn by the most fashionable people around, and packs a mighty user experience.
The sophisticated, stylish appearance of the watch screams quality. Perhaps this is the qualitative self to match the quantitative side of our sense of well-being, but regardless, the Vector Watch tells us that wearable tech is coming (more...)
Seems like Queen Elizabeth I may have been they wearable tech pioneer of sorts, as alluded to by Chris Horn (@chrisjhorn) in his Irish Times article, History of wearable devices links watches and Fitbit range. That this innovative device was a clock, or watch should come as no surprise. Timekeeping devices have been evolving for milenia, and the story of the wristwatch is fascinating.
Where better to explore glanceable UIs now the UX du jour (more...)
In SOA Suite 12c it is now possible to do step-by-step debugging of your composites, including introspection of your messages and variables. This is enabled by default in the DefaultDomain of the SOA QuickStart. But how to do so with a remote server? It is not enabled by default on seperate servers.
Since september 2014, SOA & BPM Suites are available. As you may know, the biggest difference in developer experience is the introduction of the QuickStarts, that installs a JDeveloper including a preconfigured IntegratedWeblogic that has the SOA and BPM components have installed. So there is no direct need for a complete Development Server to run and test your developments. By the way, in a project I do think you'll still need a Development Environment to (more...)
There’s a lot of talk these days about transitioning to the cloud, by IT customers and vendors alike. Of course, I have thoughts on the subject, some of which are below.
1. The economies of scale of not running your own data centers are real. That’s the kind of non-core activity almost all enterprises should outsource. Of course, those considerations taken alone argue equally for true cloud, co-location or SaaS (Software as a Service).
