Even though WebLogic with Active GridlLink is Oracle's suggested approach to deploy Java applications that use Oracle Real Applications Clusters (RAC), there might be scenarios in which you can't make that choice (e.g.: certification issues, licensing, library dependency, etc.). Application servers and their database connection pool mechanisms might end up being a bottleneck in the architecture of your applications and a critical component to provide performance, scalability and high-availability.

One of my pet-projects is LoggerUtil, which is a utility for Logger, which is an excellent logging tool for PL/SQL.
This post is not about Logger, but some dealings with Conditional Compilation.
With Conditional Compilation you can create a single code base to handle different functionalities depending on compiler flags.
The latest addition to LoggerUtil was a method to create a custom template. For this to work, LoggerUtil depends on a certain Logger Release (where (more...)
It started out innocently enough: One person wanted to bring back “Fancy Friday,” a tradition from the pre-acquisition days of the startup Vitrue. Since the dress code was relaxed, they decided to dress up on Fridays.
Seems simple, right?
It was - in the beginning. One person did it, then a few more joined in, and before we knew what was happening, we were dressed up as pirates.

I had an interesting request recently from a developer.
“ I have a table created as per below
create table C_TEST (
The rows defined by col_1, col_2, col_3 must be unique but only when col_3 is present. If col_3 is not present, then we allow anything. Hence if the table is populated like this:
insert into c_test values (‘a’,’b’,null);
I was reading the following post today http://stevenfeuersteinonplsql.blogspot.com.au/2015/06/the-oracle-database-developer-choice.html
Oracle are planning on rewarding developers in the following areas:

A post should normally go through the Integration Broker, but I first developed it at a time when I had a product that was supposed to go on servers with diverse versions of Integration Broker.
The Ping code (more...)

This check is commonly seen when a database is created on Exadata without using the custom “Exadata” templates included with the database creation assistant. These customized templates include a multitude of recommended parameter settings found in (more...)
I had a chance to take a closer look at the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance, (ZDLRA) via Cloud Control today and really liked the dashboard that’s included in the plugin for the product. This post isn’t going to cover the installation of the plugin or configuration- I was just intrigued by the dashboard and wanted to go over the great features that are part of it.
