I was constructing a fresh app for a presentation idea and I came to think about the prefix people use for Application Items in Oracle APEX.
I've seen a few variations used, and upon asking the question on Twitter (as a poll limited to 4 options), some came back with a few other suggestions.
The final tally based on the replies (we'll (more...)

In this article, I’ll explain what the Oracle FROM_TZ function is and show you some examples. Purpose of the Oracle FROM_TZ Function The purpose of the FROM_TZ function is to convert a TIMESTAMP value and a specified TIME ZONE to a TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE value. It seems like a simple data conversion function, but […]
performance of services can be done in various ways. In this blog
article I will describe a method of measuring Oracle SOA service
response times with Splunk
a popular monitoring tool. In order to monitor service response times
with Splunk, Splunk needs to obtain its data from somewhere. In this
example I’ll use the HTTP access log which I expand with a time-taken
field. Disclaimer; my experience with Splunk is something like 2 hours.
In yesterday’s post about Learning, Career Development and Mentoring I mentioned a specific question I had been asked about learning RAC. I get it quite a bit, and after reading the comments from that post I thought I would write something I could use as a reply to that type of question in future. So here it is.
It’s very much an opinion piece, but I would like (more...)

As you may know, one of the many areas of responsibility I have as a product manager in the Enterprise Manager product management team is BI Publisher. BI Publisher is the tool of choice for reporting in Enterprise Manager. If it’s not a tool you’re familiar with, then you are missing out on a lot of the power of the Enterprise Manager repository to provide you the information you need to extend Enterprise Manager (more...)
Question: Why is SQLcl truncating my column header names? It doesn’t do it if I use SET SQLFORMAT ANSICONSOLE though…
Answer: Because, SQL*Plus.
Longer Answer: SQLcl follows the SQL*Plus rules.
And in this case, the rule is:
The default width of CHAR and VARCHAR2 (VARCHAR) columns is the width of the... [Read More

There was an incident where /u01 was lost.
This means having to reinstall and patch software again.
When installing grid and I encountered:
CRS is already configured on this node for crshome=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid
Ah Crap! This is me being melodramatic.
The system was using Oracle Restart, it needs to be removed.
# /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/grid/crs/install/roothas.pl -deconfig -force -verbose
In hindsight, it would have been much easier to delete from /etc/oracle.
Guess what? ASM will (more...)
The following ASM disks were created which does not follow convention:
ASM_REDO01_006, ASM_REDO01_007, ASM_REDO01_008, ASM_REDO01_009, and ASM_REDO01_010
It should be:
ASM_REDO01_001, ASM_REDO01_002, ASM_REDO01_003, ASM_REDO01_004, and ASM_REDO01_005
Hence, we will need to recreate them. Here’s the process for me to remember.

Oracle Quick Start installers for Developers are great for probably
many developers, but they are limited. Shutting down (or crashing of)
JDeveloper will shutdown the domain and there are separate Quick Start
installers for SOA and BPM suite. When installing a SOA or BPM
environment for development or research purposes i prefer an environment
which is more close to a production configuration. Setting up an new
environment can take some time when you have (more...)
Yesterday I received pretty much the same question from three different people, or maybe one person pretending to be three people. 🙂 The questions went something like this.
I want to get good at RAC. Will you teach me?
One of the three suggested I might want to use my Sundays teaching them. 🙂
I’m not mad at people for asking this and I don’t want to offend anyone by mentioning this, but it goes back (more...)
