computing solutions are widely hailed as a way to reduce capital
expenditures and move to an inexpensive, subscription - based IT model.
However, many organizations don’t stop to consider all of the nuances of
integrating cloud applications with their existing information systems.
While deploying a cloud app or subscribing to a cloud-based service may
be relatively straightforward, how will this new IT asset fit in with
the rest of the enterprise, including on-premise systems (more...)

If Google were to characterise me based on my YouTube views, they would probably list me as some major conspiracy theory junkie. I watch a lot of conspiracy theory rubbish on YouTube, but for me it is light entertainment. I find it amusing to see how they try to present a bunch of random nonsense as science. Watch any of this stuff and you will hear the same types of phrases again and again…

In a series of blog articles I will show how you can instrument your ADF Application key actions. Instrumenting gives visibility and insight of what is happening inside the ADF application and in the ADF framework (what methods and queries are executed, when and how often). These runtime diagnostics can be very effective in identifying and solving performance issues. This enables developers to diagnose and solve performance problems at an early stage and to build an (more...)
Say you wanted to generate a stream of uniformly distributed random integers in the range [0,N) where N > 0. Java's Random.nextInt(N) is an example of a convenient API that does just that. Furthermore lets say you willing to trade off the quality of the distribution in order to gain better performance -- lower latency for each call to nextInt(N). Since we care about speed, we'll assume the implementation can't use floating point.
Unsurprisingly, definitions of Big Data run the gamut from the turgid to the flip, making room to include the trite, the breathless, and the simply un-inspiring in the big circle around the campfire.
Some of these definitions are useful in part, but none of them captures the essence of the matter. Most are mistakes in kind, trying to ground and capture Big Data as a 'thing' of some sort that is measurable in objective (more...)

In many cases it’s interesting to look at what’s been said on social media. For example: in a certain period of time many of your employees are absent. Maybe you’ll find the reason to why they’re absent in whatever people have been tweeting (Flu season? Music festival?). Or maybe you just want to know what people have been saying about one of your products. Talend is a great way to get hold of these (more...)
Every Oracle database has a data dictionary, which is owned by the SYS user and stored in the SYSTEM tablespace. This consists of read-only tables, which record information about the database e.g. table definitions, details of integrity constraints, usernames and the roles and privileges granted to them etc. You can read about this in detail in Oracle's own documentation.
So, for example, if user SCOTT tries to read a table, Oracle checks the data (more...)
One of the people attending my seminar in Munich last week has emailed me some details about a nasty little surprise you may get if you’re thinking about TSPITR (tablespace point in time recovery), and happen to have a few materialized views in your database.
You might have wanted to use the “duplicate target database” from rman with the “skip tablespace” option to create a duplicate database, excluding tablespaces that you’re not interested in, if you (more...)
As many of you are aware, we have been running the Java EE 8 survey as a way to solidly kick start the next round of standardization for the platform. We would now like to wrap up the survey and move on to the next logical steps. To that end, we will be closing the third and final part of the survey in the next two weeks (specifically on Monday the 24th, midnight Pacific time). (more...)
