Tradition and Innovation: EOUC Short Talks at OOW17



Ralf
Three years ago Ralf Koelling from the DOAG suggested that the EOUC use one or two of their small allocation of usergroup sessions at OOW17 to showcase more of the wonderful talent we have in EMEA.

At the time people were talking about the upcoming 12c Database and since lots of DBAs were at OOW anyway with the ACE Director Program we reached out and said would they like to do a short talk (more...)

Bash: enabling Eclipse for Bash Programming | Plugin basheclipse (debugging) part 2

If you want to debug bash scripts inside eclipse you have to do 2 things:
BUT:
As i wrote in the last posting, toggling breakpoints was neither possible in Eclipse Neon  nor Eclipse Juno.

First you have to install JDK 1.6 and Eclipse Luna to be able to set breakpoints. (see EDIT at the end of (more...)

Oracle Forms & Reports 12.2.1.3.0 – First Look

Today I had some time to play around with the latest Release of the Oracle Forms & Reports Services 12.2.1.3.0.

Here are my first impressions (at first the positive findings ...):

The installation procedure is the same as the previous release, so just install your JDK 1.8 (minimum version must be JDK 1.8_131), after that install your Oracle WebLogic Server Infrastructure 12.2.1.3.0 (not the generic (more...)

Blockchain – this year’s big thing in Apps?


My last post 'Mind the Gap' talked about that marketing to adoption process. And this year I think for me it will be Blockchain.


Remember when every presentation on Cloud, or Big Data or Digital started with a definition? Well expect that, and in the run up to OOW I have been reading lots of articles so I at least arrive semi educated.

Wikipedia says 'A blockchain facilitates secure online transactions.A (more...)

Mind The Gap – Marketing to Adoption – It’s Fun



I'm getting ready for Oracle Open World, what do I need to do? What do I need to Learn? Where do I need to be? Who do I need to see?

Every day, every hour my mailbox has another invite or marketing email, and the diary is getting busier and busier. 

I love OOW, it is about Oracle showing their roadmap, and marketing their current portfolio. As a partner I want to be (more...)

WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.0 – First Look

Since last night the latest release of the Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.0 is available.

I have already installed and configured the latest release, the installation process remains the same as in the previous release, so nothing really new.

The Configuration Wizard ($ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin/config.sh) got a new cool neat feature. On the screen 2 of the Configuration Wizard (Templates), you will find a Filter Templates option. In this Filter Templates you can (more...)

Internet Explorer under Mac OS X

In case, you are like me regularly working with Web environments, you will need to test from time to time your stuff with different browser, e.g. Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Under Mac OS X many Users are using for example Safari and switching the User Agent to Internet Explorer 11 or something like that to simulate an Internet Explorer.

Microsoft is providing for free (YES, its for FREE !!!) a Virtual Machine (more...)

Display Oracle Forms 12c Sessions with WLST

Sometimes you want to get a quick overview of the current connected Forms Sessions in your Oracle Forms 12c environment and the Fusion Middleware Control (http://<servername>:7001/em) is sometimes really slow reacting.

Under the My Oracle Support (MOS) Note 1580517.1 you can find a small handy Python Script, which should display you all informations about your current Forms Sessions against a specific Managed Server hosting your Forms Application. But with Oracle Forms 12c (more...)

Oracle Forms 12c and FRM-93652

I am currently working on a huge migration project for Oracle Forms 11g to Oracle Forms 12c (12.2.1.2.0) and we experience some nice FRM-93652 errors in several Forms.

We had several Forms masks on which we executed a query over the menu, data is displayed in the Forms mask afterwards we clicked a button to exit the Forms and the complete Forms session crashed with FRM-93652 :-)

Customizing a CoreOS image/iso: Ignition

After the first steps with coreos (virtualbox installation) and a successful ssh login, it is clear, that the coreos image has to be customized. If not, every reboot will clean up every configuration provided after reboot.

CoreOS provides a coreos-install script to do this.
coreos-install -help
Usage: ./coreos-install [-C channel] -d /dev/device
Options:
    -d DEVICE   Install Container Linux to the given device.
    -V VERSION  Version to install (e.g. current) (more...)

CoreOS: structure of the ISO image

After some first steps with CoreOS ("First step to micorservices: CoreOS on virtualbox") my problem is, how to customize CoreOS. After each reboot all changes are gone (tmpfs / squashfs).

There are some tutorials which recommend the usage of etcd, but even this has to be configured into the CoreOS linux...

The first idea: what about customizing the ISO image...

mount -o loop coreos_production_iso_image.iso /media/iso
Inside this:
$ ls
coreos  isolinux  syslinux

I Need You – Well if you are an ACE or Dev Champion from EMEA going to OOW


User Group Sunday is a much loved kick off to the magic that is Oracle Open World.

Usergroups are given sessions to fill and for the whole of Europe, Middle East and Africa we only get 16 sessions, which doesn't really do justice to all the amazing speakers we have in the region. So 4 years ago a idea was hatched to try and showcase as many as possible by having a couple of quick (more...)

Upcoming Webinar, “WebCenter Search that Works!” highlights Oracle WebCenter integration with Mindbreeze InSpire

The Connector enables the Mindbreeze enterprise search appliance to securely index and serve content stored in WebCenter Content. The Connector also allows customers to leverage the Mindbreeze Search App Designer to embed modern search apps directly in WebCenter Content.

As the quantity of unstructured information continues to expand, content management success depends on the ability to find data in a (more...)

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:
