MTOM using SoapUI and OSB

MTOM (Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism) is incredibly hard... to find practical information about, on SoapUI and OSB. There are loads of articles. Like:
But I need to process documents that (more...)



Deployment plan of resource adapter missing

Today I was struggling with my OSB domain. Last week I switched laptops and did a new OSB installation on my new laptop and thought it was smart to just zip the OSB Domain from my old laptop to unzip it on my new laptop.

What I forgot was to copy the adapter plan.xml from the oracle home on my old laptop. So the resource adapter did not start correctly. It was even not (more...)

Dublin Pride 2015 and Tech

Lots of tech companies out there with representatives at the Dublin Pride 2015 Parade (Airbnb, Dropbox, Google, Twitter and so on).


Here’s my contribution: wearable tech naturally (Android Wear on Motorola Moto 360). In Irish.

A Glance at DeLorean and Laptops

Spotted in Dublin. One reason you don’t want to be dependent in devices and looks. How long before it’s the laptops that are considered quaint?

So, stay in the cloud with glance UX.

Yisser Work Experience in Dublin is Here: Dogpatch Labs

I was in Dogpatch Labs (@dogpatchlabs) in Dublin today.

I wanted a taste of the startup, entrepreneurial vibe offered by a collaborative workspace and to understand what the experience meant for designing work patterns that reflected the IoT as an office: ubiquitous connectivity, data in the cloud, and flexible ways of working. 

I was also interested in the shape of human interaction that emerged when a social hub was thrown into the (more...)

End Users and Decision-Makers Can Have Their UX Cake and Eat It

Cakes seem to be a popular storytelling vehicle in the UX world, and why not?


Cupcakes for the Cloud: Seen the Oracle Direct Sales Congress for FY16 in Dublin, Ireland

The very genesis of ERP, for example was in the tea and cake business in the UK after WWII. Since then, ERP UX has evolved in ways that tell one tasty story about how innovation in the enterprise keeps the entire business sweet.  


Your first KiSS to ♥ IoT UX

Services: that’s really what’s at the heart of the IoT (Internet of Things) device conversation and what makes the user experience (UX) design of IoT different. 

Think of your first KISS (Killer Integration Services, Simple) as the beginning of a love affair with ubiquitous connectivity of devices and data exchange through the cloud.

Base64 encoding/decoding in OSB

Of course there are several java examples to do a base64 encoding on the internet. And there are almost nearly as much encoding implementations in different environments. But which one works in Weblogic/OSB11g? And to implement those examples, compile and jar them, I find myself on a quest for the necessary jars. Of course you can refer to the weblogic.jar in your project of ant file. But that is a little too much, I (more...)

The Byte-Anniversary

I was looking into my blog-entries, and found that my former blog was number 254. So this is my 255-th blog-message. So by entering this nonsense blog-entry, I reach the 255. Which makes it my 8-bit, or byte, anniversary:

And apparently my articles have been read as well... Nice thing is that I've reach this amount in 8 nearly years. So up to the next byte. Unfortunately 2 bytes does not make up a Word...

Index variables in Replace/Insert/Delete: Bug or not a bug?

At my current customer I'm to process Attachments in Oracle Service Bus (11g).
I get a soap message, in which several documents are registered to be processed in a Content Server.
For each document the content is delivered as an soap/mime-attachment.

Because of some requirements I need to store the message, complete with the attachments Base64 encoded, in the database. So I have to pick each attachment, base64 encode it and then insert the content (more...)

UX PaaS4SaaS

Some wearable tech glances beat others: user experience on the road

This concept of the glance user experience is now widespread in wearable technology.


Testing the Apple Watch in spin class. On the road is a different context of use.

There is the original of the glance species, Misfit Wearables, with the Shine, Apple Glances, and, of course, the Oracle Applications User Experience glance on smartwatches, part of the Glance, Scan, Commit design philosophy. But, they’re all at it.

But, not all (more...)

SQLDeveloper and Userdefined datatypes in tables

You might have tables that contain columns with a userdefined datatypes. For instance from 11g onwards SOASuite contain Integration B2B, with that datamodel

B2B works with advanced queueing with the queue-table ip_qtab based on the IP_MESSAGE_TYPE Oracle Type wich is defined like:
