Review at amazon: Fallbuch BIP

Sometime ago i read the following book:

If you are interested, take a look at my review at amazon.de. (like all my reviews: written in german ;-).

Ubuntu: Hibernate/Suspend to disk: Resume problem with ATI Radeon R7

On a new Lenovo laptop i had some issues with supsend/resume.
I installed tux on ice and the suspend process worked, but the resume just freezed after some seconds.

This attempt worked without a problem, so it was clear: the resume problem is a issue with the graphic card:

Oracle Database 12.1.0.2.0 are officially supported on Docker

Since yesterday, Tuesday 20th December 2016, the Oracle Database 12.1.0.2.0 and later are officially supported on Docker :-)

The corresponding My Oracle Support Note 2216342.1 can be found here: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocContentDisplay?id=2216342.1


In the GitHub Repository of Oracle the related README is also updated to reflect the support for Oracle Database 12.1.0.2.0 and later on Docker.
All required files to build such a supported Oracle Database Instance on Docker can be found here: https://github.com/oracle/docker-images/tree/master/OracleDatabase


Oracle SOA Suite 12c, Unable to get Metadata Manager for DVM

Little reminder :

folder_structure

bpel file uses the next :

xsl file used to be using the next :

<xsl:variable name="dossier" select="dvm:lookupValue ('../Dvm/actie.dvm', 'sourceActie', /ns0:notificatie/ns0:entiteit, 'targetActie', 'ongeldige actie mapping' )"/>

this will fail (the location of the dvm file isn’t relative to both the .bpel file and the .xsl file), correct path to the dvm file will be
