Last week in Stream Processing & Analytics – 26.4.2017

This is the 63rd edition of my blog series blog series around Stream Processing and Analytics! A few days later than planed, but I had some busy days with speaking on Apache Kafka at Oracle Code Berlin on Monday and today we held our Trivadis/DataStax Hands-On workshop in Zurich. So next week will be again on time (Monday), I hope 😉

OracleCode London 2017

My colleague & boss Ace Director Luis Weir and I where invited to present at Thursday 20th’s Oracle Code London.

oracle_codeThe request to present came late as we where needed to cover someone who had to cancel (not that we aren’t grateful for the opportunity). This did mean getting the presentation together was a little bit of a scramble, unfortunately I missed a couple of sessions as I needed to assemble an environment, work out how (more...)

Proactively Manage Contracts, Policies, Web Assets, and Sales Content stored in Oracle WebCenter with Fishbowl’s Subscription Notifier

Oracle WebCenter Content is a great tool for keeping your company’s content organized, but it can be difficult to proactively manage new, updated, and expiring content. For example:

  • Users check out content and forget to check it back in
  • Plans and policies require reviews at varying intervals
  • Managers change, and metadata needs to be changed for several content items

In 2005, Fishbowl launched the initial release of Subscription Notifier to help solve these problems and (more...)

We’re All In This Thing Together

This song pretty much summarizes everything I've learned to be true about life after nearly five decades of living...

Well my friend, well I see your face so clear
Little bit tired, a little worn through the years
You sound nervous, you seem alone
I hardly recognize your voice on the telephone

In between I remember
Just before we wound up broken down
We'd drive out to the edge of the highway
Follow that lonesome (more...)

UKOUG at Collaborate 2017


I didn't attend Collaborate as UKOUG but I am always representing them.

As I said in my main Collab blog, I met up with up with James Jeynes the UKOUG Executive Director at the airport. 

We have a stand at Collaborate, which James manned on his own. Kerry, the UKOUG head of sales was meant to also attend but unfortunately she has to cancel as she was unwell. Without Kerry, James had very few give (more...)

Collaborate 2017 – Las Vegas


Less than 10 hours after I got home from Croatia, I was back at the George Best Belfast City (yes that is the real name); for my flight to London and then onto Las Vegas. I met up with James Jeynes the UKOUG Executive Director at the airport, but I'm going to put UKOUG at Collaborate as a separate blog.

I arrived on the Saturday evening with the conference starting Sunday lunchtime, just time for me (more...)

Touchpad tuning on linux: touchpad-indicator…

I encoutered some problems with my touchpad on ubuntu:
While typing some text, the touchpad signalled the mouse some strange moves. Sometimes it marked parts of the text and the next key erased the highlighted text...

First idea was to edit the xorg.conf or something else, but i found a less difficult was via touchpad-indicator.

It can be installed via
apt-get install touchpad-indicator
Alittle problem is, that you can not run it via cli (more...)

Silent Installation and Configuration of Standalone Oracle HTTP Server

Currently I am working in a project for which will be needed the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) in a Standalone Mode as a frontend Web Server for a Oracle SOA 12.2.1.2.0 environment.

As I am not really a fan of clicking through several installers and configuration wizards, I have created some scripts for a complete silent installation of the Standalone Oracle HTTP Server 12.2.1.2.0 and on top (more...)

Differentiating the ICS Agent Types – Definitive Tip #5

In our book we talked about the difference between the agents offered by ICS, namely the Connection  and Execution agents. Whilst we differentiated the two, we did focus on the connection agent as this is the type we expect to see used in most cases. However the execution agent still suffers from a level of […]

Switching MPM Type for Oracle HTTP Server 12c

The Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) comes by default with the MPM (Multi-Processing Modules) Type event for Linux systems, but sometimes you need to change the MPM Type for example to prefork.

The Oracle HTTP Server comes by default with 4 MPM Types:
  • Worker: This is the default for non-Linux UNIX Platforms, e.g. Solaris, AIX ...
  • Event: This is the default for Linux Platforms
  • Prefork: This Type implements a non-threaded, pre-forking server, that handles request as (more...)

PaaS Forum – Split, Croatia


I have talked about PaaS4SaaS for a couple of years now, and the push from Oracle is even more now that most of their development tools are now available in the Cloud. So much so that Jurgen Kress' FMW Forum' was this year renamed as the PaaSForum The forum is open to all partners who are members of his community.

OUG Ireland 17


Last year Ireland tried a two day event and the general sense of opinion was that although individual things needed to be improved, it was a good thing. So this year the committee worked hard to create a compelling two day agenda.

The event kicked off with a welcome from me, and introduction to Brendan Tierney, our new Member Advocate, and James Jeynes our new Executive Director who was over for the day. Then  (more...)

Selecting which iPaaS Product(s) to use – ICS Definitive Tip #4
