For a project of mine I have implemented the ID/IDREF XML pattern inside one of mine Web Services. When I created with JDeveloper a Web Service from it everything looked fine, no errors or what soever. I could receive this pattern inside my request messages without any problems. After I filled in the same String inside the IDREF as I did in ID the only response I get is a HTTP 200 without any body. (more...)
On the 22nd of july, patchset 126.96.36.199 for Oracle 12c database was made generally available for Linux x86-64 and Solaris.
This patchset includes the eagerly awaited In-memory option which promises an application transparent performance boost by using column-format data storage in memory.
Database In – Memory uses an In-Memory column store (IM column store), which is a new component of the Oracle Database System Global Area (SGA), called the In-Memory Area. Data (more...)
The everything store
The idea of the everything store was simple: an Internet company that served as the intermediary between customers and manufacturers and sold nearly every type of product, all over the world. It is the story of Amazon.com, one of the most successful companies in the world. And the story of its driven founder Jeff Bezos.
Reading the book I think that there are a few (more...)
In this blog post I’ll share a list of books I read during the first months of 2014. There is more business focus compared to previous years…
The everything store
The everything store is one of the books I liked reading most of my reading list this year. It tells the story of amazon.com so far; The vision and ways of working of the company and it’s founder (more...)
We’re using FitNesse as one of our tools for (acceptance) testing. It can be quite laborious in FitNesse to add tags to multiple pages at once. So one my colleagues – Joost van Wollingen – wrote a nifty tool that can mass tag selected pages.
In order to have FitNesse add tags to multiple pages at once, start the Java program. Select the directory from where you (more...)

I have been busy writing a couple of articles about UKOUG WIT initiative for the OTechMag in the run up to Oracle Open World and also for our own Oracle Scene showcasing WIT participation in our Apps14 & Tech14 conferences in December.
I was appalled in my research that the current figure for Women in STEM jobs is only 13%, which drives home the need to encourage more women to step into IT.
I have just written my next AppAdvantage blog posting on the value of community learning and was prompted by this infographic just released by OTN. I am very proud to have been quoted although not sure about the no photo profile, I look decidedly male.
Seriously the Oracle ACE program from OTN is a great initiative and I am pleased to be able to do my bit to promote it.
With apologies to my Hadoop friends but this is good for you too.
This is a continuation from my previous post - Developing WebCenter Content Cross Platform iDoc Enabled Components for Mobile, ADF, Sharepoint, Liferay.
You can see a video of JIVE Forums integration with a JS Taskflows vs ADF Taskflow running in WebCenter Portal here -
This post is aimed at Web Developers, Designers and Marketing web teams who aren’t familiar with ADF and want to create reusable dynamic taskflows without the need to (more...)
Developing WebCenter Content Cross Platform iDoc Enabled Components for Mobile, ADF, Sharepoint, Liferay
So over the last couple of months I’ve been thinking and tinkering with code – “Whats the best approach for creating a WebCenter Content (WCC) components that I can consume and reuse across multiple platforms and environments?”
Is it… pagelet producer or maybe an iFrame; but these solutions just weren’t good enough or allowed the flexibility I really wanted.
I needed a WCC Solution that could easily be consumed into Mobile either cordova (Hybrid (more...)

Everyone likes to be productive, however pretty much everywhere we work there’s something with the ability to disrupt our concentration. Some are necessary – like most meetings – however others break our flow of thought and it takes a while to get ‘in the zone’ again.
I’ve recently changed jobs and the new company’s office is in Kings Cross, London. In many ways this is hugely advantageous, but it can be a bit noisy. I also (more...)
One of the leading portals on BigData, Dataconomy, had an interview with a colleague of mine on product recommendations systems. These are systems aimed towards personalizing content and recommending the ‘right’ products, in other words products that inspire customers. The article – The Science Behind the Finding the Perfect Product – is a nice read that covers quite some areas.
At bol.com we use Hadoop for batches, and (more...)
