De Java SIG (Special Interest Group) van AMIS organiseert op donderdag 16 april een bijeenkomst (publiek toegankelijk) over asynchrone interacties in Java EE (web) applicaties. Synchrone interacties in de echte wereld en in IT applicaties kunnen de boel behoorlijk ophouden. Synchroon betekent wachten – en resources vasthouden. Dat kan een probleem vormen voor schaalbaarheid en performance. In deze sessie leer je dit probleem te tackelen.
Deze SIG is interessant voor ontwikkelaars met JAVA kennis en (more...)
A colleague had a problem with an Oracle 184.108.40.206 database today. It affected the following table:
SQL> desc bepe.sd_national_holiday
Name Null? Type
-------------------------- -------- ------------------
SD_NATIONAL_HOLIDAY_ID NOT NULL NUMBER(15)
CREATED_BY NOT NULL VARCHAR2(100)
CREATION_DATE NOT NULL TIMESTAMP(6)
ACTIVITY_BY NOT NULL VARCHAR2(100)
ACTIVITY_DATE NOT NULL TIMESTAMP(6)
TCN NOT NULL NUMBER
The table was empty:
SQL> select count(*) from bepe.sd_national_holiday
After 2.5 years of development, today is the day APEX 5.0 is publicly released and ready to be downloaded
to install on your own environment.
In my view it's the best release ever. Not so much of the new Page Designer - although that is definitely a piece of art and it increased productivity even further - but because it's the first time whole of APEX got refreshed and every piece was put (more...)
What started on a whiteboard in New York City more than 2 years ago is now finally realized. I and the other members of the Oracle Application Express team proudly announce the release of Oracle Application Express 5
The official blog posting and announcement is HERE
. But this is my personal blog, and the thoughts and words are my own, so I can be a bit more free.
Firstly, I don't ever want to see (more...)

The result of a two and half year engineering effort, Oracle Application Express 5.0 represents the greatest advancement of Oracle Application Express in its 10-year history. Oracle Application Express 5.0 enables customers to develop, design and deploy beautiful, responsive, database-driven desktop and mobile applications using only a browser.

After a longer development cycle than usual, Oracle Application Express 5.0 is finally available for download! I think it was worth the wait. It comes with a ton of features, here are just a few marquee features. Page Designer Universal … Continue reading
Some time ago I pulled off the apocryphal “from 2 hours to 10 seconds” trick for a client using a technique that is conceptually very simple but, like my example from last week, falls outside the pattern of generic SQL. The problem (with some camouflage) is as follows: we have a data set with 8 “type” attributes which are all mandatory columns. We have a “types” table with the same 8 columns together with two more columns (more...)
Great news. Just finished wathching the Google hangout with the APEX team. They confirmed that APEX will be released today. The download should be made available soon. Stay tuned.
With the advent of Selective Adoption, many more people will be downloading the huge PeopleSoft Images every 10 weeks or so. They’re large (circa 35GB) and that’s going to take a while even with a decent connection.
What makes matters worse is that the default method (clicking the Download All button) runs the downloads in serial. Even on a 1MB/sec connection that’s going to take ~10 hours to download all 35GB.
In addition, the download (more...)
It’s been a while since my last post but I was really busy working on a number of projects.
The purpose of this post is to highlight an issue I had while building a standby database. The environment we had – three 220.127.116.11 databases at host A (primary) and same were restored from backup on another host B (standby), both hosts were running Linux. It’s important to mention that both hosts were (more...)

For us, it was not only the location that was special, we were also official Diamond Sponsor of APEX World 2015! And a great day it was! Not only to meet a lot of nice people from (more...)
In this post I show what is necessary to deploy a simple Meteor application to IBM Bluemix public instance. In this example we already have a simple Meteor application we have tested and verified using "meteor" itself , running on localhost at port 3000.
1. Lets remove the local DB files, be careful as this will remove the local DB so you should do this when your ready to deploy to Bluemix only.pas@pass-mbp:~/ibm/software/meteor/myfirst_app$ meteor (more...)
An interesting mathematics based question from a Singapore high school exam has been doing the internet rounds in the past few days. Considering it’s aimed at high school students, it’s a tricky one and obviously designed to filter out the better students, in a country with a very good reputation for churning out mathematically gifted […]
