Application developers frequently experiment to achieve higher quality builds, they try things out, make mistakes and find fixes. Database design can be like that too, but rapidly changing the schema in traditional shared environment tends to break the application.
In this webinar, Kyle Hailey will explore how different types of cloning technology work and their benefits and limitations. The webinar will also demonstrate how you can setup and coordinate risk-free database experiments using Delphix and (more...)
Once upon a time, Oracle Support had a note called Script: Lists All Indexes that Benefit from a Rebuild (Doc ID 122008.1) which lets just say I didn’t view in a particularly positive light :) Mainly because it gave dubious advice which included that indexes should be rebuilt if: Deleted entries represent 20% or more of […]

It’s with great pleasure that I have accepted the invitation done by the fine gentlemen at the OUGN to be a part of this year’s spring boat OUGN Conference taking us all to high seas, sharing on board the latest and greatest technology trends in the Oracle ecosystem in early April. I will be speaking […]
Next up in the ‘How I work‘ series is Anton de Weger, my first boss in the PeopleSoft world. Anton ran Congruent UK, the consultancy I worked at for 7 great years and I owe much of what I’ve learnt to him. Congruent was – for it’s no longer in existence – full of great consultants, not only in their technical or functional ability, but in a desire to behave ethically for the (more...)
I’m trying to get up to speed on 12c, especially the multitentant features. So, I decided to read the sections of the manuals that related to using multitentant. Here is the name of the manual I was looking at:
Oracle® Database Administrator’s Guide 12c Release 1 (12.1)
It isn’t great reading. It is kind of slow-paced and really more of a reference but since it is a large new feature I (more...)
Stewart’s too modest to mention it on the blog himself, but I just wanted to congratulate Stewart Bryson on being awarded Oracle ACE Director status by the Oracle OTN ACE program. Stewart was given the Oracle ACE award a few years ago to recognise past work he’d done for the Oracle BI, DW and ETL community, but this higher ACE Director award recognises the ongoing work he’s since been doing to share his knowledge and (more...)
About a month ago, I walked off a plane into the terminal at SJC. As I hiked that long walk to the exit, I heard a familiar and annoying sound, the Emergency Alert System sound.
The sound was muffled, and it took me a few more steps to realize it was my own phone bleating in my pocket. Somewhat embarrassed, I took it out and quickly dismissed the alert, which happened to be an AMBER (more...)
A few weeks ago Packt Publishing asked me if I would give a book review for the recently released Oracle APEX Cookbook, the second edition by Marcel van der Plas and Michel van Zoest. In exchange I would get the e-book for free, so this can be considered a sponsored blogpost. Even though it is sponsored I will give my honest opinion about it.
The book contains fifteen chapters starting with "Creating a Basic APEX (more...)
I want to see what useful information are returned by few RMAN commands such as report schema
or list backup
when using the default RMAN configuration and getting some backups.
When connected to the ROOT container issuing the RMAN report schema
command is quite simple identify how many pluggable databases are plugged into the container database and, above all, the relationship with their datafiles and locations.
In my case the container database, named CDB001, contains (more...)

When it comes to blogging, I completely skipped the month of February - even after I said I'd average one post per week, thought I have an excellent excuse... my wife & I had a baby girl ;-)
Even though I had posts pre-drafted, I thought I'd just cut the noose & envelop myself right into those first few weeks with our girl. It was an enjoyable time, and I'm torn coming (more...)

Dang, been a while since the last posts! A lot of water under the bridge since then.
We've ditched a few people that were not really helping anything, and are now actively looking at cloud solutions, "big data" use, etcetc.
Meanwhile, there is the small detail that business as usual has to continue: it's very easy to parrot about the latest gimmick/feature/funtastic technology that will
I plan to update this post as new information appears on the Web. Last update: 2014/03/04. The MATCH_RECOGNIZE clause is documented here > SQL Language Reference: row_pattern_clause and explained here > Data Warehousing Guide: SQL for Pattern Matching The number one source of information is Keith Laker. His post “Sessionization with 12c SQL pattern matching […]
I will describe how you configure trust stores for the WebLogic Server.
Chain of trust
When a SSL server certificate is issued by a CA it is signed by a another certificate. Normally this will be an intermediate certificated, that is again signed by the CAs root certificate. So there is a chain of trust between the (more...)

PCF AWS marketplace provides app direct services and in this example I am going to use the "newrelic
