There has recently been a lot of news about the exploit revealed in the bash shell. While the fix is very quick to implement, there are a couple of tricks that are required to install this update on an Exadata environment. According to Oracle support note #1405320.1, Exadata storage server versions 11.2.3.x.x and 12.1.1.x.x are susceptible to the exploit. On a typical Oracle Enterprise Linux, a simple (more...)

In order to keep the business-IT gap manageable, it is important for analysts, designers and architects to know what their implemented application landscape actually looks like. An important part of this is insight in dependencies between different components. In my previous blog post I’ve described how service dependencies can be determined. In this blog post I will provide a script for analyzing which services are called by ADF pages. Keep in mind both analyses are executed on (more...)

This is based on the presentation Juan Loaiza gave regarding What’s new with Exadata. While a large part of the presentation focussed on what was already available, there are quite a few interesting new features that are coming down the road.
First of was a brief mention of the hardware. I’m less excited about this. The X4 has plenty of the hardware that you could want: CPU, memory and flash. You’d expect some or all (more...)
I’ve been reading quite some article on engineering culture and ways of working. The videos on Spotify Labs are among the best sources I’ve watched or read in the last year on the subjects of agile and culture. Recently the second part of their series on Spotify’s engineering culture was released.

The main feature of the application was to show all the data of the current year, but the client also wanted to be able to consult the historical data. Unfortunately the historical data was not in the same schema as the current data.

As many will have no doubt heard, there’s a new vulnerability that has been spotted, and there are already exploits for it in the wild.
The vulnerable systems are those running Bash – so Windows machines are safe, it’s just Unix/Linux and MacOSX.
Security Researcher Kasper Lindegaard from Secunia rates this as a bigger issue than the Heartbleed exploit discovered in April this year. “Heartbleed only enabled hackers to extract information, Bash enables hackers to execute (more...)
The multitenant architecture Needs enterprise edition and the multitenant option. Consists of a CDB (Container database) and zero, one or up to 252 PDBs (pluggable databases). Has a root container (the CDB itself) and a seed container (template to create PDBs) There is only one instance per CDB. A PDB doesn’t have : background processes [...]

In Oracle SOA Suite 12C (12.1.3) the REST Adapter already made its appearance. This adapter makes it make your SCA component available as, and leverage REST services, using JSON. (more...)
As I mentioned, it was impossible to fit in a demo within that compressed 45 minute timeline. I put the details of the demo in a separate file with all the scripts and instructions that allows you to execute the demos at your own site.Download the slide deck as well as the scripts. In addition I have also written a whitepaper to explain (more...)
