Expose custom application logging on WebLogic in Log Analytics

Custom applications – standard Java EE, ADF or other Fusion Middleware such as SOA Suite – on WebLogic can produce logging through the WebLogic Diagnostics Framework (WLDF). Simply put: write log messages using Logger classes similar to standard Java Log and Log4J – read this article by my colleague Aino Andriessen for some details: https://technology.amis.nl/2011/01/12/oracle-diagnostics-logging-odl-for-application-development/ and this three part series by Duncan Mills: https://blogs.oracle.com/groundside/entry/adventures_in_adf_logging_part .

Oracle Cloud Stack – quick provisioning of stack of co-configured PaaS services: one minute for JCS, DBaaS and Storage Cloud

Some of my recent experiences with the Oracle Cloud left me less than wildly enthusiastic. Actions seemed to take long in a non-responsive, non-intuitive UI and I was required to go through too many configuration steps to get various cloud services to work together. Getting a free month trial seemed a lengthy process – if it went through at all. The other vendors seemed to be able to offer more/better/greener pastures.

Yesterday I had my (more...)

European Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Jobs are Booming, but…

The technical skills gap is widening.   As ICT graduate numbers fail to meet demand, companies must look to reskill and certify business staff.

Working on an AWS Host as a DBA

We, DBAs, have a tendency to over think everything.  I don’t know if the trait to over think is just found in DBAs or if we see it in other technical positions, too.

I believe it corresponds to some of why we become loyal to one technology or platform.  We become accustomed to how something works and it’s difficult for us to let go of that knowledge and branch (more...)

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). Implementing custom API’s using JavaScript on Node.js

#Oracle cutting in inspiration and new business?

Over the many years Oracle has been leading the database world, I guess they are now taking something of a wrong turn.
Let me briefly fill you in on my thoughts.

Basically I see two “minor” shifts that are significantly indicative of this:

  1. Oracle Standard Edition 2
  2. Oracle ACE Program

Okay, so you might think I am crazy, but let me try to explain.

Enhancing ICS Mappings with Custom Java Classes by Ricardo Ferreira

clip_image002

Introduction

One of the most common tasks performed during the creation of integrations in ICS (Integration Cloud Service) is the implementation of mappings. In a nutshell, mappings are the resources that ICS uses to allow messages coming from the configured source application to be sent to the configured target application. Failure in properly defining and configuring these mappings directly impacts how integrations are going to behave while sending messages downstream.

In order to build mappings (more...)
