An Ops Center user was recently planning a deployment, and they were wondering about disaster recovery. Apart from Ops Center's High Availability option, they asked, what recovery options are available if an EC system completely dies?
One other option that you can use is Ops Center's backup and restore capability. If you've made a backup of your Enterprise Controller, it's possible to restore that Enterprise Controller on a new system. There are a few tricks (more...)
Getting customers to move from legacy IBM Power Servers to Oracle's SPARC Systems requires educating IT managers, architects, and system administrators on the differences and benefits of Oracle Solaris.
There are several excellent resources available to help you through the sales cycle:
- Point customers to the Oracle Learning Library. This free resource includes a migration fundamentals course, hands-on labs for AIX administrators, and technology comparison guides. Once the customer has a basic level of Solaris (more...)
Last week at Devoxx, Manfred Riem (MVC 1.0 Co-Specification Lead) did a session on MVC 1.0 (JSR 371) to a packed room.
During the session, Geertjan Wielenga (Principal Product Manager in the Oracle Developer Tools) did a cameo appearance to discuss the tooling in the context of MVC.
Amongst other things, Geertjan is looking at some of the potential features an IDE could bring to simplify the development of MVC based (more...)

Nice feature for Oracle dba's to handle the backups using NetApp technology.

An interesting experience I have had this year is being more involved in helping organise the annual UKOUG Oracle Technical Conference – Tech14 this year. I fully intended to blog about things as we progressed, but it never happened. But I thought it would be interesting to do a couple of blogs about it, for anyone interested,
If you have never helped organise a conference or user group meeting then you probably think there is (more...)
That’s data that isn’t there until you look for it, sort of, from the optimizer’s perspective.
Here’s some code to create a sample data set:
create table t1
with generator as (
select --+ materialize
level <= 1e4
rownum <= 1e6
ownname => user,

At Rittman Mead we’re always keen to collaborate with our peers and partners in the Oracle industry, running events such as the BI Forum in Brighton and Atlanta each year and speaking at user groups in the UK, Europe, USA and around the world. We were pleased therefore to be contacted by our friends over at Amis in the Netherlands just before this year’s Openworld with an idea they had about forming an expert-services Oracle (more...)
I received an email from a team member yesterday
Have you seen this? https://docs.oracle.com/database/121/TDPPT/tdppt_awr_warehouse.htm
Interesting idea – ever thought of implementing it?
Well of course I have implemented a AWR data repository and I thought I would catch-up on where I am with it and how it is being used.
The database started out on HPUX on 188.8.131.52 about 2 years ago and is now on Linux on 11. (more...)
So it was really day 2 of the conference, but it was day 1 for me, so that’s the way I’m naming it… There were seven tracks available, but I’ll be speaking about what I saw…
First up was the keynote by Tim Ebbeck called 10 Rules of Transformational Leadership. I’m not the biggest fan of keynotes, but this one was pretty cool. To summarise:
- Nothing beats being as good as you can be. Get (more...)
Jobs To Be Done. Or #JTBD. We’ve been road testing this framework lately. I like it. Could it be a good fit for the busy cloud developer who wants to build a usable solution that solves a real problem and doesn’t want to deal with the generalizations of personas or overhead of user profiles (a debate in itself)?
Seems like a good fit for the agile world too. Pictured is Julian Orr (left) (more...)
In this article I describe why you always should base your business object based upon an element, instead of a complexType.
With the Oracle BPM Suite your process data consists of project or process variables. Whenever the variable is based on a component
, that component is either defined by some external composite (like a service), or is defined by the BPM composite itself, in which case it will be a Business Object. That Business (more...)
The first day of the Auckland conference was made up of hands-on labs and workshops. I wasn’t presenting, so I arranged to meet up with some friends and have a play day.
On my way out of the hotel I saw Osama Mustafa, who is still looking buff like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. On the way to the station I met Anton Els, which was a pleasant surprise. We chatted for a (more...)

I talked about scoping breakpoints for debugging purposes, next to scoping breakpoints JDeveloper has more interesting debugging features to offer.
I created a simple example to show both the watchpoint as well as the beep functionality. To illustrate this, I created a page with an inputText and a button, both bound to a backingBean.
This is the jsf code:
The code from the bean is also pretty straight forward:
