PeopleTools Simplifies Internet Explorer Certifications

With the GA of PeopleTools 8.54 a couple months ago, customers have been reviewing the certification requirements for PeopleTools 8.54 as they plan their upgrades.  A number of questions have come up recently dealing with certified browsers.  Just last month, I blogged about the Internet Explorer requirements required to support the new Fluid UI.

We’ve made a change recently to simplify the Internet Explorer browser environment for PeopleTools.  Oracle has (more...)

SOA DbAdapter lingo: java.sql.SQLException: setObject, Exception = 8

In the many years that I work with the Oracle SOA Suite and its Database Adapter, I never really had the pleasure of encountering the setObject errors.

Normally when you screw up the IN parameters in your call to the Database Adapter you’d get those java struct  “cannot convert STRING to NUMERIC” errors. However, the following message

BINDING.JCA-11808
Set object error.
Error binding the value of parameter P_SOMEINPUT.
An error occurred when binding the  (more...)

Getting The Users’ Trust – Part 2

Last time I wrote about the performance aspects of a BI system and how they could affect a user’s confidence. I concluded by mentioning that incorrect data might be generated by poorly coded ETL routines causing data loss or duplication. This time I am looking more at the quality of the data we load (or don’t load).

Back in the 1990’s I worked with a 4.5 TB DWH that had a single source for (more...)

Windows Power Shell does not know psae

I’ve never notice it before, probably already known by most of you guys. But whilst I was building a Peoplesoft database from within Windows 2012R2, I ran psae (PSADMIN AppEngine) from a Windows Power Shell command prompt.
And here what I got:

PS E:pt854binclientwinx86> psae
psae : The term 'psae' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check

Oracle 12c: Temporal Validity, multiple on one table

During a trial run for my presentation at Oracle Open World "Oracle 12c for Developers", you can find the slides on slideshare. there was a question regarding "Temporal Validity".
What is Temporal Validity?
The documentation says it best:

Temporal Validity Support lets you associate one or more valid time dimensions with a table and have data be visible depending on its time-based validity, as determined by the start and end dates or time stamps of (more...)

ORA-01123

I was reading through an old book recently and it said that you could not put a tablespace into hot backup mode if the database was in NOARCHIVELOG mode. This seemed reasonable to me but I wondered what might happen if you tried to do this so I ran the following SQL in an Oracle 11.2 database:

Autonomous Quadcopters Playing Some Catch

Tony went to a talk by Salim Ismail (@salimismail), the Founding Executive Director of Singularity University recently. He may/may not post his thoughts on the talk, which sounds fascinating, but this video is worth sharing either way, and not just because we have quadcopter fever.

Yeah, that’s autonomous flight, So refer to the list of horrifying things that should not be allowed.Possibly Related Posts:

No Write Permission on ACFS Mount Point



Last night, I managed to create the ACFS Mount Point after resolving the issue "ACFS-9459: ASVM/ACFS is not supported on this os version". But, after creating the ACFS Mount Point, I'm unable to create or touch any files under this ACFS Mount Point.

Oracle SOA Suite 11g and 12c: Determining composite dependencies to the level of operations

In large companies, often there are many services and dependencies between services. It is important to track service dependencies in order to for example estimate the impact of changes. Design documents or architecture views can be used for this but as everybody knows, there is often a gap between theory and practice (design and implementation).

In this blog post I provide code to determine dependencies between composites to the level of operation calls. In order (more...)
