Reading list of 2014 so far
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...)
FitNesse add tags to multiple pages at once
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...)
With the new hardware and fast internet connection, is it the norm to only keep images in one high-res version, regardless of the way the content is utilized in the article?
Today's example is this article on Forbes; Why I Left The Wall Street Journal To Join Oracle
From the article, here are two images :

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...)
In every change there are hype machines that over play and sages who call doom. Into the Big Data arena steps David Searls to proclaim that Big Data is a myth and simply hype which is set to burst in an article over at ZDNet.
But big data, he said, is nothing more than the myth that collecting vast amounts of data can help companies know customers better than those customers even know
Online product recommendations using Hadoop
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...)
"Essentially, all models are wrong. Some models are useful."
A week ago, Oracle released Oracle SOA Suite 12c. In this blog I will show how easy it is to create a Standalone-server environment for Oracle Event Processing (OEP) 12c.
The major new features of Oracle Event Processing 12 are the new integrated development environment based on Jdeveloper and the Event Delivery Network (EDN) event adapter nodes which provide that tight integration at runtime to SOA Suite composites and all other SOA components supporting the (more...)
A week ago, Oracle released Oracle SOA Suite 12c. In this blog I will show how easy it is to create a SOA Suite development environment.
The Oracle SOA Suite 12c Quick Start distributions allow you to quickly install a development or evaluation environment on a single host computer. It only takes a couple of minutes to set it up.
Before starting the installation, make sure that you have a working Java Development (more...)
One of the new capabilities of Oracle SOA Suite 12c
is the ability to control the SOA infrastructure thread pools, except the resource pools for EDN and the adapters, with Oracle WebLogic Server work managers. Each partition will has its own work managers defined. This allows you to separate services in partitions and, to some extent, tune them separately based on for example specific SLA requirements.
Well, this blog posting is not about explaining the (more...)
