The User Group Tour

Those of you that have been around Oracle for some time may already be aware of the various OTN tours. These tours bring well known speakers to some of the smaller (relatively speaking) regions that often don’t get to see some of the big name speakers, simply because of audience size. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been involved in the OTN APAC tour, and recently returned from the New Zealand leg of the (more...)

Quick Tip: Controlling how PL/SQL Errors are Shown

You can change the color, line style, or even just disable the indicator completely

You can change the color, line style, or even just disable the indicator completely

Remember, you only see the error messages in the log AFTER a compile. If you want to see the list of errors at any time, simply click on the ‘Errors’ page, or try compiling your program again.

While we’re on this page, there’s lots and lots of cool things you can fiddle with here. For example, ‘SELECTED TEXT.’

Big Data… Is Hadoop the good way to start?

In the past 2 years, I have met many developers, architects that are working on “big data” projects. This sounds amazing, but quite often the truth is not that amazing. TL;TR You believe that you have a big data project? Do not start with the installation of an Hadoop Cluster -- the "how" Start to talk to business people to understand their problem -- the "why" Understand the data you must

Why we won’t need a PeopleSoft v9.3

3291330534_84cc20eac9_z[1]I caught up with Paco Aubrejuan’s “PeopleSoft Townhall” webinar from Quest the other day. Paco is Senior VP of Development for the PeopleSoft product line and it was a really interesting listen. The session can be found here, although you need to sign-up with Quest to view it. It’s an hour long and he discusses the future direction of the PeopleSoft product family plus the new simplified and mobile user experience for PeopleSoft, the (more...)

Conferences and the Etiquette of Meeting New People

One of the reasons I like user group conferences is meeting new people in my “area” – these people at the conference not only like technology and probably some of the same technology I do but, as they are at a conference, are probably inclined to learn stuff, meet people and maybe share ideas. I’m not actually very good face-to-face socially with people I do not know, so I like to tilt things in (more...)

JMS with JBoss A-MQ on OpenShift. Lessons learned about remote Clients and Encryption.

OpenShift is the "open hybrid cloud application platform by Red Hat". It comes in different flavors and the most interesting part for most of the things you want to do is the public cloud application development and hosting platform "OpenShift Online". You can easily try it out because using OpenShift Online in the cloud is free and it's easy. All it takes is an email address. The free offering allows for up to three basic (more...)

Using DB Adapter to connect to DB2 on AS400

In my current project I need to connect to a DB2 database on an AS400. To do so is no rocket science, but not exactly a NNF (Next-Next-Finish) config.

First you need to download the IBM JDBC adapter for DB2, which is open souce. Download the JT400.jar  from http://jt400.sourceforge.net/. Place it in a folder on your server. Since it's not an Oracle driver, I don't like to have it placed in the (more...)

Fabric8 Gateway for the Unified Push Server

If you want to run the Unified Push Server behind a firewall, you still need to expose those RESTful endpoints that are accessed from the mobile apps running on the different devices:

With the help of the Fabric8 Gateway Servlet this is a fairly simple task!

I have created such a gateway that only exposes the above URLs, nothing else. Checkout therepository on github!

Have fun!
