In most SOASuite and Oracle ServiceBus projects the Database Adapter is used. And often it is used to invoke PL/Sql functions and procedures. Actually, it's my favorite interaction method with the database, since the re-entrancy of the database adapter wizard is best there. To do a re-entrant update of a select or DML operation when for instance a column is added, is simply put often quite problematic.
User Experience matters in business. Ever experienced frustration using an ATM or in-flight entertainment system? Think about how you felt and what it meant for that business. This short presentation explains why UX matters… it’s you and your business that wins …
At one of my customers there was the question of creating users that needed to log on to EM (Fusion MiddleWare Control) and Service bus console to be able to deploy SB en WLS Artefacts (queues, datasources etc.) on the Dev and Test environment. And to be able to do some monitoring on Acceptance. Further more they still used weblogic as the only, shared, administrator user. For the latter Oracle recommends to create at (more...)
Senior UX Director Ultan O’Broin (@ultan) keeps his finger on the pulse of the startup scene in EMEA with an eye to enabling that community with his team’s outreach machine. Here he talks about user experience (UX) enablement’s offer to startups to accelerate their SaaS and PaaS opportunities.
When Life Gives You Lemons, Pivot
Pivoting: That realization that a permanent income is preferable to remaining just a fascination.
Today I encountered that for a developer at my customer the complete oracle.osb.logging.pipeline logger was missing in the log-configuration. So setting the level from EM (Fusion Middleware Control) following the article above is a little hard.
At one of my customers we create Service Bus Weblogic Domains using a script, driven by a property file. But in one of the environments we encountered that the AdminServer was accidently called 'Adminserver', with a lower-case 's'. Now this is a very minor issue, but the administrator would like to have it fixed, since it is an anomaly regarding with other environments.
This week I got to implement my start-stop scripts (which I will (more...)
I got the change to dive into that this week and luckily not only I learned a lot again, but I found the problem as well. I adapted my scripts. I won't repost them completely, I've created a github account, and try to place (more...)
As a developer you probably 'log-a-lot' in OSB. (Funny term, perfectly to mock people that have the tendency to excessively add log activities/statements to their code. And hey, if you're being mocked like this: I'm happy to join you, let's make it a 'Geuzennaam').
So as a log-a-lot, I was questioned by a OSB developer this week on a OSB11g->SB12c upgrade that I support, that his logs weren't visible in the server-logs in de 12cR2 (more...)
I’m still loving my Vector Watchand use it daily, worldwide. The smartwatch continues to attract attention with a great wow factor that impacts those around me as I travel about. The watch is definitely a good fit for my global work/life style, packing an awesome combination of stylish looks, activity tracking capability, long battery life, robustness and a well designed app that adds up to a neat smartwatch user experience that takes a lot (more...)
Since my previous long running assignment, I'm involved in a few OSB 11g to 12c upgrade trajects, where I have been working on automatic installs. Hence, my articles about automatic installs, patching and domain configuration.
When I create a new domain, 12cR2 (12.2.1), using my scripts, I'm not able to use the nodemanager of the domain to start the servers. Actually, I can't connect to it. I get it running alright, but connecting (more...)

At last wearabletechnology makers are getting it: The fashion or style dimension of wearable tech (or #fashtech) is critical to user acceptance and market success.
They’re all at it now, hiring fashionistas left, right, and center to consult on, design, and wear their wearables. The hot wearabletech space at the moment is, of course, smartwatches with seemingly everyone offering a device (Swiss Army?) while now considering impact of how fashionable (more...)
