Using Oracle Process Mobile Application by Waslley Souza

clip_image001

When you are using the Oracle Process Cloud Service, you can use the Oracle Process Mobile Application on your mobile device to start a new process or access the task list to approve or reject the tasks assigned to you.

In this post, we will start a new process through the Oracle Process Mobile Application, approve the task assigned to a user and see the history of the process in Oracle Process Cloud Service from (more...)

How important is “up to date” to you ?

I wrote a post a while back showing how one of the options with an Oracle Text index is to keep that index perfectly updated with its underlying table.  (Long termers with Oracle may know that this is a relatively recent addition to Text indexes, which historically were updated with calls to CTXSYS.CTX_DDL.SYNC_INDEX, either on demand or via the scheduler).

I also said that there is “no such thing as a free (more...)

Oracle JET Hybrid Receiving Mobile Cloud Service Notification

Oracle JET Hybrid enabled with Cordova Push plugin can receive notifications sent from Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). You should read how to setup infrastructure in this article - Your first Push notification based Oracle JET Hybrid application!. I will focus on implementation steps and will provide working sample app for download.

Sample JET hybrid application provides login functionality. During login we register device ID with MCS service, this allows to receive notifications:

ORACLE_MAINTAINED Objects Don’t Export

What a disaster this is with 12c full database export and ORACLE_MAINTAINED objects.

Somehow, oracle thinks MDINH is an ORACLE_MAINTAINED user and user MDINH does not get exported.

———

Why Can an Object Not Be Exported? Expdp of SYSTEM User’s Table Returns ORA-39166 or ORA-31655 (Doc ID 2114233.1)

There are certain system generated schemas that are not exportable using exp or expdp because they contain Oracle-managed data and metadata. SYS, MDSYS, and ORDSYS are some (more...)

Synthetic Full Backup for Oracle

Synthetic full backup is a method for combining incremental backup into a full backup. It is not a new thing, many backup utilities can do that with file system backups. It is also well described:

http://www.techworld.com/storage/what-are-synthetic-backups-1149/

http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/synthetic_backup.html

However, there is only one backup suite that can do that with Oracle RDBMS: Commvault 11.

How is it done?  Well, Commvault is a very well documented tool, the documentation is here:

To CDB or NOT To CDB (ORACLE_MAINTAINED Column)

I recently discovered about column ORACLE_MAINTAINED added to DBA views and got excited over nothing.

ORACLE_MAINTAINED from DBA_ROLES
Denotes whether the role was created, and is maintained, by Oracle-supplied scripts (such as catalog.sql or catproc.sql).
A role for which this column has the value Y must not be changed in any way except by running an Oracle-supplied script.

It looks like ORACLE_MAINTAINED is only valid for CDB and seems as if Oracle is really wanting all (more...)

Maven builds for SOA Composites with BPEL Java embedding and Java class

Enviornment: Oracle SOA Suite 12.2.1

Sample Application:  https://github.com/jvsingh/SOAAppWithJavaEmbedding/tree/develop/SOAApplication
(Git clone or use the download option from here: https://github.com/jvsingh/SOAAppWithJavaEmbedding/tree/develop )

Scenario: 
 A BPEL component has a Java embedding that in turn calls a Java class method (under the usual SCA-INF/src)

Issue:
This works and builds find using JDeveloper, but the oracle-soa-plugin for maven seems to have a few known issues (see references for one of them) that cause builds for (more...)

Video – How to build a Process Cloud Service Application (Business Travel Requests) in 40 minutes – Part III – Business Rules Setup by Jose Rodrigues


clip_image002

Welcome to Red Maverick’s fifth video, the third of the Business Travel Request Management Series.

In this series we’ll guide you on how to build a complete, working BPM application using  Oracle’s Process Cloud Service.

For this part, the focus is on setting Business Rules using Oracle’s PCS, to fine tune the process flow path, depending on process data.

This scenario and video was first prepared by me for Link Consulting‘s Process Cloud event, (more...)

Avoiding Hiccups in Building Oracle JET Applications

When using NetBeans IDE to work on an Oracle JET project installed using the Yeoman generator on the command line, the files in the "src" folder are incomplete without the build command being run. Of course, you can just enable the Grunt build task and that solves that issue. Just right-click on the project and choose Build:

The first time you do this, you'll be prompted as follows:

Say Yes and you'll be here (your (more...)

Copy Data Management with Delphix on Exadata

I’ve been busy reading and testing everything I can with Delphix, whenever I get a chance.  I’m incredibly fascinated by copy data management and the idea of doing this with Exadata is nothing new, as Oracle has it’s own version with sparse copy.  The main challenge is that Exadata’s version of this is kind of clunky and really doesn’t have the management user interface that Delphix offers.

EM13c: Performance Tuning Access to Read Only Administrators

About six months ago, when I was in the OUGN Spring Conference, someone asked me how they can let developers access to performance tuning pages on Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c. He said that they granted full administrator privileges to the developers so they could access the performance page but it’s not acceptable. He also mentioned that they didn’t need to grant full administration privilege to the developers’ EM users while they were using (more...)

Little things worth knowing: using Remote Diagnostic Agent more effectively with profiles

RDA, or the Remote Diagnostics Agent, has been around for a little while. Over the time, and with the growing number of Oracle’s acquisitions it has become, shall we say, a little more difficult to handle. It appears to me as if every one of them will have its diagnostics handled by RDA making it hard to focus on something specific, like for example the database.

I won’t go into very detail of the Remote (more...)

LittleArduinoProjects#222 Stair-step Generator

Once again I'm inspired to go and build a circuit by yet another great tutorial from w2aew.

This circuit generates a stairstep waveform by an ingenious combination of 3 circuit elements:
  • a "high" (265Hz) frequency pulse (555 timer) provides the charge to step-up the output
  • the step pulse feeds an OpAmp pulse integrator/accumulator
  • a low frequency pulse generator (OpAmp oscillator) provides the reset pulse that clears the accumulator and resets the 555

As always, all (more...)

Friday Philosophy: Be A Hero – OR Be The Best

There is a crisis! The database is not responding, the apps can’t work and the business is suffering. Management are doing what management are there for – panicking and demanding “Someone Do Something!!!”.

Step forward a DBA who logs into the server, checks the alert logs, spots what is wrong and fixes it. The database starts processing requests, the applications are all working fine and the business is back on track. What a hero!

Mount NTFS disk in Linux 7

Today I wanted to pass an old disk in a usb-case to my son. It was from an old Windows Laptop and even though I'm administrator, I wasn't able to read the documents in an other user's folder.

So I thought, let's do it from an Oracle Linux 7 VM, as root. But it turns out that Oracle linux did not support NTFS by default.

But with the trick in this link I managed to (more...)

Saving money by understanding Oracle licensing, part 1

Oracle and licenses. The general feeling most of the time is that you pay too much for the use of the Oracle products, and it’s not always sure if you are compliant, because of the complexity of the rules. This – hopefully clarifying –  blog is part of a small series and is an updated blogpost of one I wrote a few years ago, published on my private website. Since then the (Oracle) world has (more...)

Basic integration of Process Cloud Service with Document Cloud Service by Lykle Thijssen
