Oracle Podcasts – Beer & Pizza

We have been fortunate enough to participate an ArchDev podcast about meetups – https://blogs.oracle.com/developers/pizza%2c-beer%2c-and-dev-expertise-at-your-local-meet-up

The podcast talks about the differences between the meet-ups and events such as conferences, what we try to get out of a meetup and the effort put into arranging them.

Oracle DB Upgrade 12.1 auf 12.2

Ich bin gerade dabei einige Datenbanken von 12.1 -> 12.2 upzugraden. Dazu setzte ich den DBUA ein und bin sehr positiv überrascht. Viele Checks werden im Dialog abfragt und diese werden dann während des Upgrade Prozess umgesetzt. Der Upgrade läuft reibungslos durch auch wie in meinem Fall auf RAC Datenbanken.

Möchte man den Pre-Upgrade vorab durchführen und dies per Skript steuern, dann kann man auf Metalink dazu ein Skript herunterladen. Dieses Skript sammelt (more...)

Introducing SQLdb360: merging eDB360 and SQLd360, while rising the bar to community engagement

Today, we are very happy to release SQLdb360, a new tool that merges together eDB360 and SQLd360, under a single package.

Tools eDB360 and SQLd360 can still be used independently, but now there is only one package to download and keep updated. All the new features and updates to both tools are now in that one package.

The biggest change that comes with SQLdb360 is the kind invitation to everyone interested to contribute (more...)

Developing concept products that embrace emerging technologies

Working with emerging technologies brings unique challenges for developers. There are few to no users out there one can ask about requirements.

Designing for What’s Not Yet Here

User Research at the Forefront of Technology

Editor’s note: For posterity’s sake, I’m reposting some content that we created during our time at Oracle. These statements and views are those of the author and do not reflect those of Oracle’s current user experience organization.

What do you do when you don’t have users yet?

Oracle’s approach to researching emerging technologies isn’t really about the technology; it’s about the users: observing, listening, empathizing, and learning about our users and what matters to them.

exachk 18.2.0_20180518 released

Oracle released the new Version of exachk. The version is shown as 18.2.0_2018052018 so far so good. The next sentence in the Note is: „What’s new in exachk 12.2.0.1.4 may be found in the „What’s New in 12.2.0.1.4″ section of the User’s Guide available here..“

The new Release model from Oracle is really confusing. From my point of view it makes no sense that you download (more...)

Export – Import Business, Again


"At first it was difficult to tell just what had changed—it all looked the same
and it all smelled the same—but, for some reason, nothing sounded the same."
-- Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Doing things just because “they’ve always been done that way” may not be the best reason to stick with old and accepted processes and utilities. Oracle has changed significantly over the years and those improvements shouldn’t be ignored simply because (more...)

Documenting APIs on the Oracle API Platform

The last week or two I have been working on a new API Platform utility to add to my existing tools (see here). This tool addresses the question of generating documentation.  Much as been said about API documentation and the quality of it, check out these articles :

If you look at these articles and others, there are some common themes, which are:

Playing with ADWC (Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Service)

Oracle has launched Oracle 18c and the Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud Service (ADWC). Many people call the Oracle 18c as the Autonomous database, and this is a huge mistake! Oracle 18c (that is in reality Oracle 12.2.0.2) is not an

UKOUG Tech 18 Conference

The call for papers for the U.K. Oracle User Group’s 2018 Conference in December is out. The committee are looking for papers across not just core Oracle technologies like the database and SOA Suite but newer technologies such as Event Hub.

So the committee will welcome submissions about open source tech that (more...)

Lessons in Oracle Cloud Password Management

Oracle Cloud is growing and maturing at a tremendous rate if the breadth of PaaS capabilities is any indication.  However, there are a few gotchas out there, that can cause some headaches if they get you. These typically relate to processes that impact across different functional areas. A common middleware stack (API CS, SOA CS, OIC etc) will look something like the following:

The Forgotten Link To The Cloud

(Note: This article was also published at Oracle.com – https://blogs.oracle.com/database/the-forgotten-link-to-the-cloud) Last year when presenting a session at Collaborate’17 in Las Vegas regarding Tips and Best Practices for DBAs, I went thru the evolution of the DBA profession and also gave
