Visualising Transfers on a Sankey Chart

Earlier this month I posted a method of getting a Doughnut Chart in HCM Cloud despite only the traditional pie chart being supported – with the cunning use of Google Charts, as first shown by Damien Roux and Julian Challenger.

Google Charts can do a lot more than just doughnuts though. Have a look at Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 for a broader range.

One that particularly caught my eye was the Sankey Chart, which I (more...)

Implementing API Platform Book extract

An extract of our new book Implementing API Platform has been made available by the publishers Packt here. Of course you could enjoy all the content by buying the book directly from Packt (go here) or from book retails such as Amazon (here).

Docker: Network configuration – none / brigde / hostname / dns entries

If you are starting your docker container you can add some network configuration details via command line.
Let's start with the easiest network setting:
docker run -it  --net none alpine /bin/ash
This setting starts the container without any connectivity to the network:
# ip addr show
1: lo: mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN qlen 1
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo

Oracle Podcasts – Beer & Pizza

We have been fortunate enough to participate an ArchDev podcast about meetups – https://blogs.oracle.com/developers/pizza%2c-beer%2c-and-dev-expertise-at-your-local-meet-up

The podcast talks about the differences between the meet-ups and events such as conferences, what we try to get out of a meetup and the effort put into arranging them.

Form more info about the meetup I help organise checkout out https://www.meetup.com/Oracle-Developer-Meetup-London/events/249256400/

Docker: How to limit memory

By starting your container you can limit the RAM usage simply by adding
-m 4M

(this limits the memory to 4 megabytes).

To check this simply run:

docker run -it -m=4M  --rm alpine /bin/ash

and on your docker machine check the following entry:

alpine:~# cat /sys/fs/cgroup/memory/docker/4ce0403caf667e7a6d446eac3820373aefafe4e73463357f680d7b38a392ba62/memory.limit_in_bytes

ICS to OIC

We have had a number of interesting conversations of late about the transition from ICS to OIC and to spice the discussion whether it should be OIC or Autonomous OIC. The reality of the situation is that the transition between ICS and OIC is a relatively straight forward one using the export and import tooling. […]

The post ICS to OIC appeared first on Implementing Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends 2018

Mary Meeker has delivered her annual Internet Trends report and – as usual – there’s a lot to consider. Others have picked it over for general points of interest so I won’t repeat that, so instead I’ll focus on possible ramifications for Oracle’s Cloud Apps.

Oracle SOAR ?!

Larry Ellison announced yesterday Oracle SOAR:


Soar [https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/soar]:  
Fly or rise high in the air.
‘the bird spread its wings and soared into the air’
It is about migrating into the cloud [press release]:

What is Oracle Soar?

Oracle held a webinar tonight, unveiling their newest offering – Oracle Soar – with the strapline “the last upgrade you’ll ever do”.

Act 1

The webinar started with Larry outlining the premise that if you’re an eBusiness Suite Financials customer you can ‘upgrade’ to ERP Cloud (here the term ‘upgrade’ was used in the context of moving from EBS to ERP Cloud). Then – thanks to the continuous delivery model giving you incremental improvements – (more...)

Doughnuts and HCM Cloud

Today is – apparently – National Doughnut Day, so here’s a very tenuous way of talking about Oracle HCM Cloud within the context of doughnuts.

A couple of months back I tried to find a way of getting doughnut charts within OTBI in HCM Cloud, as they look more modern than a traditional pie chart. I couldn’t find a way so posted in Oracle’s Cloud Customer Connect site and learnt two things:

a) doughnut charts (more...)

Progressive Web Apps – bridging the gap between apps and websites

Apps, websites, mobile sites

For a long time, developers had to choose whether they would build a (mobile) web site or an app to reach their audience. Both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Web sites are platform independent, but lack functionality and cannot be used offline. Apps deeply integrate with the device on which they are installed but have to be developed for each platform and are not as easily updated.

Top 10 Albums Meme


I’ve been hit by a barrage of social media posts on people’s top 10 albums, so I thought I would take a look at what I have listened to the most in the last 5 years or so. I’m not claiming these are my favorites or “the best” albums recorded (in fact there are many better albums I enjoy). But I was somewhat surprised to find that I do return to the the same albums (more...)
