I went to a conference – and all I can post about is this picture

I was on DOAG and UKOUG conferences this year and hold some presentations there.
Of course I attended even more presentations and learned a lot of new things.
But I did not blog about it for some good reasons:
The presentations I attended are done already. Which means the presenters did a lot of research and put it all into great presentations and abstracts - so why should I create a weak copy of their (more...)

Exploring AJAX presentation

Wow, what a busy year. My blog archive is pretty thin this year, isn't it?

I'm moving house next week, but I'm itching to get back into blogging about my tech journey.
I need to get back into learning mode, I have some Kscope ideas to foster!

Perth had a humble but successful conference last week. It was impressive to see Oracle APEX dominating the developer track, with thanks to ACE Director Dimitri stepping up (more...)

UKOUG and Microsoft Marathon Webinar

I’m here for the last day of UKOUG Tech17 and it’s been an awesome event.  This is my first time to this event while in Birmingham and although quite the party town on the weekends, its a great city to have an event like UKOUG’s trio of events during the week.

I was welcomed to great turnouts to both my presentations and then enjoyed numerous sessions by other’s, such as Richard Foote, Jonathan (more...)

Adaptive Query Performance Fixes for #DB12c Release 1

We all know adaptive query feature introduced in Oracle Database Release 1 is a problem. Recently I had the opportunity to review few 12cR1 databases and found that to alleviate the performance problems, the DBA set parameter OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE=11.2.0.4 in Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1.0.2). This observation is the catalyst for the blog “Adaptive Query […]

Docker-Swarm: One manager, two nodes with Alpine Linux

After creating a Alpine Linux VM inside virtualbox and after adding docker because of the small disk footprint (Alpine Linux: 170MB | with docker: 280MB) i performed the following steps to create a docker swarm:
  • cloning the vm twice
  • assigning a static ip to the manager node
  • create new MACs for the network interface cards on the nodes 


Then i followed the tutorial https://docs.docker.com/engine/swarm/swarm-tutorial/create-swarm/ but without running the docker-machine commands, because i have (more...)

JET Composite Component in ADF Faces UI – Deep Integration

Oracle JET team doesn't recommend or support integrating JET into ADF Faces. This post is based on my own research and doesn't reflect best practices recommended by Oracle. If you want to try the same - do it on your own risk. 

All this said, I still think finding ways of further JET integration into ADF Faces is important. Next step would be to implement editable grid JET based component and integrate it into (more...)

Impdp Resumable Mystery

Resumable operations are operations that can be suspended instead of failing, allowing us to fix the problem and resume the operation. When importing data using impdp, if (for example) a tablespace gets full, instead of failing the entire import (and force us to restart it from the beginning), we can identify that and add some … Continue reading Impdp Resumable Mystery

A busy 25 hours at UKOUG Conference

I’ve just come to the end of a very busy 25 hours at the UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG) Conference in Birmingham.

Below are the presentations on the Microservices and (more...)

UKOUG Tech17 : Monday

I couldn’t face the traffic, so I walked to the station and got the train into town. I got to the event in time for the first sessions, but got waylaid meeting people, so the first session for me was the morning keynote, where I got my 30 seconds of fame as they announced the speaker awards.

After the keynote I grabbed a drink and went to watch “Flashback Features in Oracle Database” by Connor (more...)

So while finishing up my slides for the Microsoft Pass Linux Marathon webinar on Dec. 13th, Tim and I started to discuss the apples vs. oranges comparison of SQL Server on Linux process management vs. an Oracle instance.

We discussed the differences one might expect to see using different tools with the two database platforms and the first question surrounded information pmap would provide.  We commonly use pmap to map out processes, including child (more...)
