Which Oracle Release are you using?

Post Date: August 2018!

Recently an awesome Oracle Guru friend of mine questioned someone who was installing 11.2.0.4 with the word “seriously”, which is think shows that Oracle staff sometimes don’t live in the same technological world as the rest of business.

My response was:

11.2.0.4 is normal. In the real world:

– large corps mostly use old versions

“Regulatorics: Offside is when the referee whistles” – I’m a speaker at #DOAG2018

Today my presentation is confirmed: “Regulatorics: Offside is when the referee whistles”. Maybe the German title will be  better understood: “Regulatorik: Abseits ist, wenn der Schiedsrichter pfeift”

The regulatory system has more and more influence on our software development.

Regulatory authorities, exteranl and internal Auditors are increasingly examining our IT and not longer only our business processes and balance sheets.
Some of them have better trained IT experts as we can find on the free market.

Direct IOT

A recent (automatic ?) tweet from Connor McDonald highlighted an article he’d written a couple of years ago about an enhancement introduced in 12c that allowed for direct path inserts to index organized tables (IOTs). The article included a demonstration seemed to suggest that direct path loads to IOTs were of no benefit, and ended with the comment (which could be applied to any Oracle feature): “Direct mode insert is a very cool facility, but (more...)

The Struggles of Personalization in ADF

A Mike Heeren & Richard Olrichs co-production

ADF comes with the out-of-the-box features of personalization. This means that whenever you configure personalisation, users can persist changes they make to the application across sessions and personalize their experience with the application. We have seen that this feature can also confuse some of our users, so it is not always wise to use this. It depends on the use case you have. However, when recently implementing personalization (more...)

Blocking Prepared XA Transaction

There was an oracle-l thread last month about blocking sessions which could not be identified.

I replied back about a very niche scenario which I’d seen a few times before. And it’s just happened again so I thought it would be useful to just post some evidence on this.

Here are a couple of articles posted previously on XA transactions:

Oracle SOA Suite: Installating the Fusion Middleware Infrastructure

After setting up the database (installation, instance setup) and the SOA Suite repository (via rcu) the next step is to install the Oracle Weblogic Infrastructure.

The software can be downloaded here:

(You have to choose "Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Installer)

The unzip the downloaded zip:
 fmw_12.2.1.3.0_infrastructure_Disk1_1of1.zip
and run it: 
java -d64 -jar fmw_12.2.1.3.0_infrastructure.jar
Because the Oracle documentation does not contain pictures of the installer, here the screenshots:










Next step is to run the config.sh to configure the Application server domain.
