Social Insights from the #LeadOnCA Watermark Conference

A Guest Post by Meg Bear,  (pictured left), Group Vice President, Oracle Social Cloud Platform

Tuesday, February 24 was an inspiring day of thoughtful discussion at the Lead On Silicon Valley Watermark Conference for Women. Over 5,000 people gathered to discuss the issues that matter the most to women in the workforce. I am proud that Oracle sponsored this fantastic event to support the development of women leaders.

These discussions didn’t just happen in person (more...)

Sequences – a quick guide and an unexpected quirk

Sequences on Oracle databases are simple, but there are some basic truths about sequences which need to be understood if you are going to use them, especially on RAC:

 

  1. Sequences will have “holes” in them, even if you specify NOCACHE (e.g. if you rollback your transaction).
  2. Don’t specify NOCACHE. It doesn’t scale.
  3. Sequences will NOT necessarily be, erm, sequential for your transactions. That will depend upon the COMMIT order and if you are (more...)

Reading VCAP_SERVICES Postgresql service credentials within Bluemix

1. First add the maven dependency as follows. This will add WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile to your project

Remote graphical installs

Most of my servers tend to be Linux VMs on VMware ESX without any graphics desktops setup, so it can be disconcerting trying to install Oralce with it’s graphical “runInstaller” being the gate way we have to cross to achieve installation.  Of course there is the silent install, but to do that requires knowing all the secret handshake responses to make the silent installer work. Often the easiest way to get a response file is to (more...)

HotSOS symposium 2015

This week I participated (online option) in HotSOS conference — the only conference that is focused entirely around Oracle database performance and internals. Like a year ago, it was a great conference, I really enjoyed it. Predictably, the number one topic was the in-memory option. Probably every third talk was about it. I learned a lot of stuff I didn’t know before (and I strongly suspect that this stuff wouldn’t be easy to find anywhere else).

Working around heatbeat issues caused by tracing or by regexp

I had noted in my first post that using the highest level of tracing caused timeout issues with the offload server heartbeat monitor. Heartbeat issues can also occur with expensive (and badly formed) regexp expressions. By default the heartbeat monitor is set to 6 seconds which is the maximum permitted to process 1MB data in the offload server and mark the task completed and is far more time than is reasonably expected to take. 

Operations such as expensive (more...)

APEX 5 EA Impressions: Custom jQuery / jQuery UI implementations

Next days / weeks I will post from my experiences with the new APEX 5 EA. Today I will show a common mistake in current APEX applications. Because APEX 4 has not the newest versions of jQuery or jQuery UI included. Even so the development continued and some developers just added newer version of jQuery (UI) into their page templates or headers. Unfortunately APEX 5 is not so happy about it. :)

Example of wrong (more...)
