Editor’s note: Here’s another Maker Faire 2015 post, this one from Raymond. Check out Mark’s (@mvilrokx) recap too for AppsLab completeness.
I went to the Maker Faire 2015 Bay Area show over the weekend. A lot of similarity to last year, but a few new things.
In place of our spot last year, it was HP-Sprout demo stations. I guess HP is the main sponsor this year.
Sprout is an acquisition by (more...)
In this article, we will look at the very common interaction between Stream Explorer and JMS. JMS is a commonly used channel for decoupled exchange of messages or events. Stream Explorer can both consume messages from a JMS destination (through Stream) and publish findings to a JMS destination (with a target). The use case we discuss here is about temperature sensors: small devices distributed over a building, measuring the local room temperature every few seconds (more...)
This weekend the 10th Annual Maker Faire Bay Area took place in my backyard and rather than fighting traffic for 2 days with the +130,000 attendees I decided, as I have for the last 9 years, to join them.
Unlike last year, Oracle had no presence at the Maker Faire itself, so I had plenty of time to walk around the grounds and attend sessions. This post is an overview of what I saw (more...)

Observations on UX research and road-testing wearable tech in the wild. The vehicle for today’s message is Ultan O’Broin (@usableapps), taking advantage of Oracle Applications User Experience events and outreach to evaluate the fitness and health option on the Apple Watch—and to continue his Fitbit Surge exploration—this time in China.

Dynamic groups in an LDAP are groups which contain a query to specify its members instead of specifying every member separately. Efficient usage of dynamic groups makes user maintenance a lot easier. Dynamic groups are implemented differently in different LDAP server implementations. Weblogic Server can be configured to use dynamic groups in order to fetch users for a specific group. In this blog I will describe how dynamic groups can be created in OpenLDAP and (more...)

Back in February I was invited to participate in an pre-beta release of the Amazon Echo SDK. I was under NDA so I couldn’t share any of my finding here. But now that NDA has expired and I can share some of the integrations I did with this interesting device.
First of all I want to comment on the fact that not any of the OS level voice assistants in the market are (more...)
This article is just a quick post of some code I want to have easy access to. It runs in Java SE – outside any container in a stand alone JVM. It creates a connection with a JMS Queue. One class sends messages to the Queue, the other class registers as a listener and consumes messages from a different queue.
I have created the code in JDeveloper. It runs stand-alone and connects to a WebLogic (more...)
Dinsdag 19 mei vanaf 17.30 uur vindt bij AMIS (Edisonbaan 15, Nieuwegein) een gratis community workshop plaats over Stream Explorer en Oracle Event Processor in het kader van de AMIS SOA SIG. Lucas Jellema zal een presentatie geven waarin hij Stream Explorer introduceert. Hij laat een aantal demonstraties zien van Stream Explorer, OEP en de interactie met SOA Suite 12c. Vervolgens krijgens deelnemers de beschikking over een Virtual Machine (Stream Explorer, OEP, SOA Suite (more...)
1. There are multiple ways in which analytics is inherently modular. For example:
- Business intelligence tools can reasonably be viewed as application development tools. But the “applications” may be developed one report at a time.
- The point of a predictive modeling exercise may be to develop a single scoring function that is then integrated into a pre-existing operational application.
- Conversely, a recommendation-driven website may be developed a few pages — and hence also a few (more...)

A significant portion of US workers will be leaving the workforce. At the same time, a new generation is entering the workforce with an entirely different set of expectations. According to a PwC report
, millennials already form 25% of the workforce in the US. By 2020, millennials will form 50% of the global workforce. Read Mark Hurd's interesting take on (more...)
The mere reason that I dug into SSM yea
sterday was that I wanted to install the Oracle Database 12c.
(Did you know yesterday came from the word 'yeast'? So actually yea
sterday: because one used the yeast of the day before to bake the bread of today. Also in Dutch the word for yeast: 'gist', still sounds in the word for yeasterday: 'gisteren'.)
I ran however against the prerequisite check on (more...)
Or how to encrypt your title with acronyms...
Today I wanted to create a VM with an Oracle SOA/BPM Suite 12c installation, since I'm to give a workshop on the installation of it. I used Oracle Linux 6 for my installations and the last few years I did play around quite a lot with it (for someone who is not a core systems administrator), to upgrade all my VM's to the latest update, remove obsolete (more...)
Today I ran into something curious, that I saw a few weeks ago on a training that I gave: the root filesystem ran full (Oracle Linux 6). At first I did not find anything that caused the problem, but the command 'df -k' indeed suggested a full root filesystem. Using 'du -sh /home/oracle' we found that that folder consumed an unreasonable amount of space. In my case today I found the same. It turns out (more...)
