Oracle HCM Cloud Executive Forum

Last night we held Cedar’s annual HCM Cloud Executive Dinner in a lovely restaurant atop the Gherkin, London.

It’s a fantastic setting for an event such as this, and with the late sunset we were able to walk around the top of the building and look out across our wonderful city from all directions – both in daylight and then again once the city’s lights came on.

There were – of course – customers to talk (more...)

Creating FTP connection factories using WLST

Creating FTP connection factories using the Weblogic console can take a lot of time, mainly because it are multiple screens you have to click through every time. But creating these FTP connection factories can be done a lot easier and faster when using a WLST script.

The following script can be used as a base for your script to generate your FTP connection factories. I have used this script on a Weblogic 12c environment.

OUG Scotland – 22 June



When Scotland Events were first started they tended to be held in Edinburgh or Glasgow in hotels, the more traditional conference venue.

Then when Oracle bought Sun and that came with Linlithgow they wanted to show it off and invited us to hold the events there. But once they started to fill Llinithgo and convert it into one of the first Cloud Data Centres there was less and less room. As Dermot Murray said as (more...)

Node.js tutorial part 1; setting up your environment

In a previous post I explained what Node.js is and how it works. Now, I’ll help you install it and create your first Node.js powered webpage.

I make the assumption you have some basic HTML and Javascript knowledge.

Node.js is installed as part of the npm installation. npm is a very powerful Javascript package manager that will save you tons of work when used properly. We at Whitehorses do not suffer from the “not invented here” (more...)

Provisioning backend services to mobile with Oracle MCS

MCS, or Mobile Cloud Services, is Oracle’s relatively new PaaS tool for provisioning your data to mobile devices or IoT  devices. And actually, it’s a pretty simple tool. MCS aims at simplifying the creation of mobile API’s (especially REST API’s) on existing or newly build web services. It delivers an enterprise Mobile Backend-as a-Service (MBaaS).
On top of that, mobile applications can be created. MCS supports natively build apps, hybrid apps or one of the no-code app development (more...)

A quick look on WLSDM for WebLogic Server

WLSDM (WL Smart Dashboard & Monitoring) was already mentioned by some people within the Oracle WebLogic Community.

The WLSDM tool is a Console extension with which you can monitor your Oracle WebLogic Server environment. But its not only a pure monitoring tool, its more than this, it provides on top even Notifications and Alarms for metrics.

Current release for WLSDM is 2.3.1 which also comes with Oracle SOA Support :-)

The installation is (more...)

AMIS25 Beyond The Horizon




In the Hackathon blog I explained I had already been signed up for AMIS25. I only had one presentation on Digital Disruption in the Oracle World, and so was prepared to fund the trip myself, until the Hackathon came along; I knew it would be great.

I love the dutch ACEs. For some reason The Netherlands embrace technology ahead of the curve. If you look at the APEX or ADF masters there is a (more...)

OTN Developer Challenge


I had already signed up for the AMIS25 conference so when OTN suggested an ACE Cloud Day on the Wednesday, I thought why not?

It did mean I had to leave ilOUG a day early and transverse Europe as there are no direct flights but I did get 2 hours in Berlin and sneaked in a cheeky currywurst.

Anyway the Cloud Day morphed into a Hackathon, or more correctly renamed later by legal as the (more...)

ilLOUG – Israel 2016

Last weekend I flew to Israel for the 3rd IlOUG tech days. I have been to Tel Aviv twice before but for their business days, more normally suited for a functional apps person. 

I have met Ami Aharonovich many, many times he is the ilOUG president and a very active member of EOUC and IOUC, and way back at the last OOW he asked me if I would be interested, as PaaS4SaaS overlaps (more...)

The river floes break in spring…


Alexander Blok
The river floes break in spring...
March 1902
translation by Greg Pavlik 


The river floes break in spring,
And for the dead I feel no sorrow -
Toward new summits I am rising,
Forgetting crevasses of past striving,
I see the blue horizon of tomorrow.

What regret, in fire and smoke,
What agony of Aaron’s rod,
With each hour, with each stroke -
Or instead - the heavens’ gift stoked,
From the (more...)

Taxonomy is a Sleeper. The reasons from A to ZZZs that taxonomy hasn’t been a part of your most important projects—but should be!

I’m a taxonomy practitioner at Fishbowl Solutions who has worked with many companies to implement simple to sophisticated document management systems. I’ve noticed over the years the large number of obstacles that have prevented companies from establishing taxonomy frameworks to support effective document management. I won’t review an exhaustive alphabetic list of obstacles, in fact, there are probably far more than 26, but I’ll highlight the top culprits that have turned even the best, most (more...)

Moving from PeopleSoft to the Oracle Cloud

Those of you who know me will know that I’m working at Cedar and we’re moving from PeopleSoft to the Oracle Cloud. I won’t talk about the company’s journey, but more how I’ve found the transition personally.

In brief, there’s a lot to learn.

Data Model knowledge

In the PeopleSoft world, once you know the table structures you could work significantly faster. Whether you were writing an SQR, an App Engine, an XMLP report, a (more...)

Taxonomy isn’t just for frogs anymore. What taxonomy means in document management.

 

taxonomyfrogTaxonomy can be a nebulous term. It has existed for years, having probably its most common roots in the sciences, but has blossomed to apply its practices to a plethora of other fields.  The wide application of taxonomy shows how useful and effective it is, yet its meaning can be unclear due to its diversity.  We identify with taxonomy in library sciences with the Dewey Decimal System and we identify with taxonomy (more...)
