2017OOW – OOW Messages



No surprise that #OOW17 was all about Cloud, but that is now cloud across the entire portfolio.

Oracle talked about the content in #OOW17 being the equivalent to a year's education. So no way I could take all that in. To me #OOW is about finding the areas I need to know about, get the headlines and find out who to follow up with. I have another tactic as well, identify the ACE Directors who (more...)

WIT – Welcome in Technology


I attended or took part in a couple of WIT events at #OOW17 and here is what I learnt.

#DEVWIT

My schedule was, as always manic, so I was up first in these lightening talks by women in the dev community, which is sad because I would loved to have heard everyone's stories.


I talked about how I got into IT, which I have shared on this blog before. When I started, IT had just become (more...)

OOW17 – Oracle Developer Community formerly OTN


A few weeks before #OOW17 - Oracle Technology Network changed it's name to the Oracle Developer Community. #DevCommunity 

The ACE Program is part of this relaunched community and a nice new name means a nice new jacket. Thank you, and loving the shape of the lady version.



Community is a really important part of the Oracle outreach, and there is something for all of us. Take part, it is such fun.


During #OOW17 the Developer (more...)

Debugging bash scripts on remote hosts using Eclipse

After installing the two plugins
it is very easy to debug scripts inside your workspace on your computer. But i was wondering, if this can work on a remote host, too.

So what has to be done?

Only these steps:
  • copy your shell scripts AND _DEBUG.sh onto your remote host
  • change the first line of _DEBUG.sh from
    exec 33<>/dev/tcp/localhost/33333
    to
    exec 33<>/dev/tcp/host_running_eclipse/33333
After that start the debugger (more...)

2017OOW – User Experience



Another of my now traditions pre #OOW is the UX training at HQ. The UX advocates within the ACE program come together and learn all that is new and product direction. Since the first talks of Fusion this has been baked in and to me it IS what makes the applications SELL.

The most interesting discussions of the day were around chatbots.  Oracle has a great video to show use this, which to me is (more...)

Barriers to Adoption should not stop Innovation



During a session on chatbots at the Oracle UX event I made a comment that I think was taken incorrectly and as we were pushed for time I didn't have the opportunity to explain what I really meant.

The examples that was given was one of an individual using an  intelligent personal assistant such as Alexa to ask how much vacation do I have and the response being taken from HCM Cloud

I said (more...)

2017OOW – Off Piste (having fun)


I love that OOW gives me the opportunity to have fun alongside the hectic time table. Much of that means very, very early mornings.

So traditionally there is the Bridge Run (well I only walk it, hence an even earlier start) and then the swim. I didn't cycle this year as I did Javaone4Kids, but that in its self was really fun.

So the Bridge Run on the Sunday morning was a beautiful sunrise. (more...)

Oracle SOA Suite developer IDE: Jdeveloper 12c (download & installation)

After installing an Oracle 12c database onto an Oracle Linux i want to run Oracle's SOA Suite. But before the installation of SOA Suite 12c including the application server, i decided to download Jdeveloper to get a first impression of BPEL processes in version 12c (several years ago i did some projects with Oracel Fusion and Oracle SOA Suite 11g).

First try, to get Jdeveloper with SOA Suite extensions (skip these 4 steps - (more...)

Changing Logfiles Permission of WebLogic and Node Manager Logfiles to 644

In some cases you will need to align the Logfile permissions of the Oracle WebLogic Server (12.2.1.1 and 12.2.1.2) and Node Manager generated Logfiles to 644 (-rw-r--r--), so that for example Monitoring Tools like Patrol can access and monitor the WebLogic Server Logfiles with another OS user as the Oracle Software Installation user.

Just take a look on the Start Script startWebLogic.sh under your $DOMAIN_HOME/bin and the startNodeManager. (more...)

2017OOW – Certus Solutions and Oracle Partner


It was a great #OOW17 for Certus and kicked off with a great award. We knew before we left from the UK but were sworn to secrecy.


We won the Oracle Excellence Award for HCM Cloud in EMEA, and when it was presented to us at the Partner Event on the Sunday night, Bas Diepen said it was for not only our customer successes but also our reputation for 'on time and on budget'.


2017OOW – UKOUG & User Groups in General


UKOUG was represented at #OOW17 in force. As explained in a recent news article we were sending both Paul Fitton our President and James Jeynes our Executive Director.

Both Paul and  James were new to #OOW17 and I am sure they were surprised at the sheer scale of it all. They both had very full agendas and I know they wanted to see lots of sessions between meetings, but I haven't caught up with them (more...)

Using Adobe InDesign with Oracle Content Experience Cloud

5 Things I learned about Using Adobe Design Products with Oracle Content Experience Cloud

As a designer I am always a little leery when someone tells me they are going to ask me to change my process.  To my great relief moving from my desktop and WebCenter to Content Experience Cloud is not only easy but will make me faster.  Here are the first 5 things I have learned since making the switch.

ODC Appreciation Day : Visual Builder Cloud Service


Yep, it's cloud, but it lets me extend cloud apps and initially that was a no-no. It is also low code, so you don't need to be technical, so why wouldn't I like it?

Well I wish they would keep the name, it was called Application Builder Cloud Services and that meant it was ABCS and I wrote about it, lots.

ODC Appreciation Day: Oracle GitHub Docker Images and Oracle Container Registry

It's time again for the ODC Appreciation Day (formerly known as OTN Appreciation Day) driven by Tim Hall.

My personal favorite this year are the Oracle GitHub Docker Images and the Oracle Container Registry.

The Oracle GitHub Docker Images (https://github.com/oracle/docker-images) are the "Community Version" provided by Oracle. So in order to use them you will need to download upfront the required Installation Software from OTN or Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.

Under the (more...)

ODC Appreciation Day : Apiary Editor

This post is my contribution to the Oracle Developer Community (ODC) Appreciation Day. The idea of the event is best explained by Oracle Base – go here.

The Apiary Editor has to count as a pretty new entry into the possible features that could be considered with Apiary only coming into the Oracle family in the last year. Apiary as a solution provides a platform by which modern REST based APIs can be designed, documented (more...)

2017OOW – Volunteering


Wow what an amazing day this was!

When I wrote my pre-open world blog I didn't have anything planned for Saturday but I knew that would change and then Michelle Kolbe tweeted me and suggested that I should volunteer for JavaOne for Kids,  so I did.

I'm certainly not technical so I really wasn't sure what I would be able to do but they said they needed room monitors, people who could just help (more...)
