A cool thing I heard at Open World 2014: we all know in SOA there are all these adapters you can use in your SCA components. In Oracle Integration Cloud Services (ICS) there are a lot of new SaaS adapters to integrate with SaaS applications like SalesForce for example. These adapters are build using a Cloud Adapter SDK and written in Java.
This exact SDK will be available for users as well, so we all (more...)
Although there had been many analyst and Oracle ACE briefings for much of the preceding week, Sunday night was the ‘proper’ opening for Oracle OpenWorld 2014. It kicked off with Larry’s first keynote of the conference. (He traditionally does two, however skipped the second last year to watch the thrilling finale to the 2013 America’s Cup.)
His hour long address was given over exclusively to the cloud. Here’s a summary of the important points (more...)
Spotify engineering culture part I & II
I’ve been reading quite some article on engineering culture and ways of working. The videos on Spotify Labs are among the best sources I’ve watched or read in the last year on the subjects of agile and culture. Recently the second part of their series on Spotify’s engineering culture was released.
Spotify engineering culture part I
Important take aways for me were:
- Agile over scrum
- Principles over practices
This year’s Oracle Open World is again all about Cloud and Mobile. However, this year it is getting more and more concrete. Apart from all the announcements of Process Cloud and integration cloud services there will be more JSON support in Oracle’s SOA Suite.
In Oracle SOA Suite 12C (12.1.3) the REST Adapter already made its appearance. This adapter makes it make your SCA component available as, and leverage REST services, using JSON. (more...)

This is Fishbowl’s fourth product for the Google Search Appliance, and introduces a productized integration that exposes Google search features like spelling suggestions, dynamic navigation, and document previews directly within the portal.
Previous integrations between the GSA and WebCenter or Liferay Portal had to be heavily customized to expose similar (more...)

Who has worked with the Design view of the XSL mapper in Oracle JDeveloper, knows that it works nice for simple mappings and drawing lines from one end to the other. However, when adding more complicated transformations, the moment arrives one has to modify the source. This usually results in mapper errors, and the Design view will not be displayed.
Although it’s not entirely avoidable this will happen at some point, there are a few (more...)

After upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 my wireshark
freezed on every startup without showing up the main window.
The only workaround was to deinstall wireshark including wincap and installing it again. But after the nex reboot, it freezed again.
After searching around i found the following fix, with cured this problem:
inside the registry you have to change the DWORD start in
from 0 or 1 to 2. After that wireshark will start properly even after reboots....
After Oracle's news about the changes at the helm, I was offered to follow a new user on twitter. which may be relevant for me - @MarkVHurd

One of the books I took for pool-side holiday reading this year was The Billionaire and the Mechanic – a book recounting the Americas Cup, Larry Ellison’s attempts to win it, and the car radiator mechanic that he teamed up with to ultimately succeed in his quest.
The book appealed to me in part because of my profession – Oracle Applications software – but also because I used to sail when I was younger; an (more...)
A lot has been written about the transactions, boundaries, threads etc in the Oracle SOA Suite. Clemens has written this piece years ago which explains the basics.I recently had a ‘disagreement’ with the SOA threadpool when I was using a parallel flow in a synchronous BPEL process.
The requirement was to guard the execution time of this BPEL process to a predefined maximum amount of seconds. The environment is as such that tweaking the (more...)
In the many years that I work with the Oracle SOA Suite and its Database Adapter, I never really had the pleasure of encountering the setObject errors.
Normally when you screw up the IN parameters in your call to the Database Adapter you’d get those java struct “cannot convert STRING to NUMERIC” errors. However, the following message
Set object error.
Error binding the value of parameter P_SOMEINPUT.
An error occurred when binding the (more...)

Mark is an Oracle Webcenter consultant, and he has worked on a few different projects over the last year helping customers integrate WebCenter with Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft.

Mark discusses WebCenter’s (more...)
I read an interesting blog post by Tim Warner earlier this evening, and then watched as a strong debate over the post waged on Twitter.
Tim’s article actually has two points. The second half – the benefits of SaaS/cloud software – are pretty evident to most people now. The first two paragraphs were the ones that drew the Twitter comments.
To summarise Tim’s point, he was saying:
“Some of the more technical questions like “is it true (more...)
