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...)
JMS is perfect for setting transaction boundaries and in OSB it is pretty clear on how JMS transactions are handled. However in SOASuite using the JMS adapter by default the SOA Infrastructure is handling your JMS transactions, messages are removed from the queue rightaway because the Get's are Auto-acknowledged. If something fails, you would expect that messages are rolledback to the JMS queue and eventually moved to the error queue. But, by default, not with (more...)
Yes, Oracle FMW Integration Insight is available, as I wrote in an earlier post. You can download it here. But of course we're very curious on how to install it. Do I have to unzip it into my FMW_HOME? Is there a nice Oracle Installer that I can run silently? No, none of that: it comes as a set of OPatch patches on SOASuite 12.2.1:

A quick one. In the past I used to generate ddl based on queries, like the following. But I find myself to re-invent them again. So to have it saved for my offspring: here's one on deleting obsolete columns as generated on importing an excel sheet in SQLDeveloper:
declare l_schema_name varchar2(30) := 'MY_SCHEMA'; l_table_name varchar2(30) := 'A_TABLE'; cursor c_cols is select column_name from all_tab_columns col where col.table_name = l_table_name and col.owner = l_schema_name (more...)
BAM 12c is a huge improvement against 11g. Best thing I think is that it is quite a lot easier to create a dashboard. There are several tutorials on BAM, for instance at the BAM12c site, so I'm not going to explain how to create a dashboard here.
One thing however on business queries: the examples mostly start with a BPM process and then query from the Process of Activity Data Object as created (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.

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).
