Op donderdagavond 27 augustus organiseert AMIS een SIG (Special Interest Group) Architectuur. De SIGs worden voor en door eigen medewerkers georganiseerd. Sommige SIGs zijn ook open voor externen. Wil jij graag bij deze SIG Architectuur aanwezig zijn? Stuur dan een mail naar firstname.lastname@example.org en laat ons weten waarom je erbij wilt zijn en wat je huidige functie is.
In deze SIG willen we een aantal applicatie architectuur templates voor verschillende situaties/uitdagingen bedenken. (more...)
A client of mine was busy correcting one of his development streets and therefore the NLS charactersets of about 10 220.127.116.11 EE databases had to be changed.
Most of the databases were originally configured with WE8ISO8859P15, others with WE8ISO8859P1 and all of them had to get WE8MSWIN1252. Some of them were single instances (export, development and test), some RAC (acceptance) and some of them were RAC plus Dataguard (production, for the procedure (more...)
In this article, I will introduce a set of Vagrant and Puppet configuration files that automate the creation of a Linux Virtual Box VM with Oracle Event Processor and Stream Explorer installed in it. The installation process that is automated in this article is described in all its manual glory in my earlier article: Oracle StreamExplorer and Oracle Event Processor – installation instructions to quickly get going, that describes which files to download, which (more...)
This article discusses the installation of Oracle Event Processor 12c on Linux 64bit and the subsequent installation of Stream Explorer on top of OEP 12c. This article assumes Linux 64bit as the operating system. More specifically: it assumes the environment that can be produced following the instructions in my article Quickly produce a Linux 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop environment using Vagrant and Puppet – as starting point for Oracle installations – Ubuntu 14.

Quickly produce a Linux 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop environment using Vagrant and Puppet – as starting point for Oracle installations
My objective in this article: create generally reusable Linux 64 bit (Ubuntu 14.0.4 with Desktop) Virtual Box Image – based on Vagrant and Puppet as to stamp out multiple copies of the image. The image should support Puppet and Git and must have a JDK installed.
I frequently want to try out new software. In many occasions this is software from Oracle, frequently still in beta. Usually this software runs best on Linux (more...)
My challenge: how to scan a bunch of paper documents and store the electronic image files on my NAS.
At my disposal: an iPhone, wireless network and a Windows laptop. I also have a Facebook account that is configured on the iPhone.
The steps I went through:
1. Scan documents by taking pictures with iPhone
2. Open the Camera Roll. If you want to share with an Apple Device (iPad, Mac) you can use (more...)
An artifact repository has many benefits for collaboration and governance of artifacts. In this blog post I will illustrate how you can fetch SCA composites and Service Bus artifacts from an artifact repository and deploy them. The purpose of this exercise is to show that you do not need loads of custom scripts to do these simple tasks. Why re-invent a wheel when Oracle already provides it?
This example has been created for SOA Suite (more...)
Inspired by a presentation given by Shukie Ganguly on the free Oracle Virtual Technology Summit in July (see here); “New APIs and Tools for Application Development in WebLogic 12c”, I decided to take a look at an interesting new feature in WebLogic Server 12c: the RESTful Management Services. You can see here how to enable them. In this post I will provide an overview of my short study on the topic.
RESTful management services (more...)
Normally in SoapUI property values are shown as plain text. Here I miss-typed the property for password on purpose:
Suppose your organization wants to enforce a security policy on database password strength. The DBA’s have implemented a password strength verification function in PLSQL such as the oracle supplied ora12c_strong_verify_function in the DEFAULT profile of the database. There seems no way to get around it at first:
Database account u4 is created:
U4 logs in and tries to keep it simple, i.e. the password:
That password verification function got in (more...)
De transformatie van de kenniswerker in vakantieganger is op dit moment overal zichtbaar. Ik vind het mooi om te zien hoe mensen in andere situaties toch vergelijkbare patronen vertonen. Wat zien we en wat kunnen we leren van dit soort laterale verbanden? Voor mij: energie, flow en plezier. Vakantie is net werken.
Bij de vakantieganger maakt het kostuum plaats voor de bermuda, de gepoetste schoenen voor teenslippers en de stropdas voor pet en zonnebril. Ook het (more...)
