Parsing Named Arguments into Python Scripts

If you are coming from the Shell Script World, you are used to parse Named Arguments into your Shell Script, e.g "-u" for Username, "-p" for Password and so on. With Python Scripts you normally pass ordered arguments into your Python Script, so you are bond with the arguments in a fixed order, while passing Named Arguments you can reshuffle them in any order.

A typical Shell Script Snippet would look like that:

CoreOS: How to login via ssh (default password?!)

After the installation of a coreos you want to login via ssh (because of wrong localization inside your virtualbox/vmware console and no client tools installed (copy/paste not working, etc...)?
If you ask your preferred search engine, you will get many answers that there is not default password...
(Of course! The idea behind containers and container schedulers is, that everything works automatically and typing passwords does not fit in this mantra).

But no worries, only (more...)

Linux Containers – Container LInux: Core OS – a minimal linux? A quick overview: diskspace, mounts, commands, kernel, …

Virtualization techniques can be grouped into two categories
  1. os virtualization like VMware, Virtualbox, etc.
  2. container virtualization like Docker, etc.

Everybody is familiar with the first category. Creation of virtual machines is well known and most of us have created already tens or hundreds of such machines. (and deleted and lost them after some weeks). One of the benefits is, that it is easy to run additional machines on our laptops / workstations.
The second category (more...)

SQLcl – the SQL*Plus plus a plus …

"euphoric: intensely happy or confident", @thatjeffsmith, https://youtu.be/ecgijS76jvw ...

Just watched the video from @thatjeffsmith about SQLcl - and it is, indeed, worth the time. After looking that video, I'm pretty sure that SQLcl will replace SQL*Plus within months (if some more people 'spread the word').

Just a few keywords to make you curious:

  • SQLcl is available as 'standalone' download, but it is also already part of the latest SQLDeveloper 17.2. (more...)

First step to micorservices: CoreOS on virtualbox (1)

I read some articles about microservice architecture and about kubernetes / apache mesos.
My conclusion from these articles is, that lightweigt servers are a key point to this microservice architecture. Just to learn how tiny such a OS could be, i will try to install CoreOS inside virtualbox.

There is an easy way to get CoreOS running ("booting CoreOS container linux from ISO"), but there some limitations stated on the CoreOS website:

A Fishbowl Success Story: The Benefits of Consolidating Disparate CAD Databases

A large medical device manufacturer wanted to fully integrate their R&D, engineering, and manufacturing organizations. This would allow a more efficient, capable and robust product development system that would help the flow of new, innovative products and never fall short on quality.

Getting started with MapR-DB Table Replication

Read & comment this article on my new blog Introduction MapR-DB Table Replication allows data to be replicated to another table that could be on on the same cluster or in another cluster. This is different from the automatic and intra-cluster replication that copies the data into different physical nodes for high availability and prevent data loss. This tutorial focuses on the
