Today my presentation is confirmed:  “Bob the Builder: Build/Deploy of ADF enterprise applications”.

I will speak over our experiences with following

  • build tools
  • deployment tools
  • architecture
  • versioning & branching
  • continuous integration
  • hot deployment in development
  • compile & runtime dependencies

If you speak german and you are interested in some of this, you should come and attend DOAG 2015.

How to Hide Actions in OBPM 12c Workspace

In this article I explain how to hide the actions in the drop-down in Workspace.

In some situations you may need to hide the actions that are shown in the Actions drop-down in Workspace.


One way to do so is by configuring the access that users with a specific Workspace role have for a specific task (not to be confused with a swim-lane role), by going to the task definition -> Access -> Actions. For (more...)

Developer Cloud Service and Oracle ADF

ADF Spotlight sessions demonstrate features of Oracle ADF. Recently I delivered a session providing a DevOps solution in the cloud for Oracle ADF developers. This was broadcast live on June 30, 2015. You can view the full recording on YouTube here.

Log Buffer #431: A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

This Log buffer edition covers Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL blog posts about new features, tips, tricks and best practices.

Oracle:

  • Traditionally, assigning specific processes to a certain set of CPUs has been done by using processor sets (and resource pools). This is quite useful, but it requires the hard partitioning of processors in the system. That means, we can’t restrict process A to run on CPUs 1,2,3 and process B to run on (more...)

Fix completion insight in JDeveloper 12.1.3: show return type again

Hi!

If you work with JDeveloper 12.1.3 you may missing the return type of methods in completion insight.

For an example you hit CTRL-SPACE after following code

completion_insigt_return_type_wrong

you see that at the start and at the end of the popup the available method names and parameter. If you have worked before with older versions of JDeveloper, you know that there is shown the return type of the method at the end. What a loose of (more...)

Leveraging the Oracle Developer Cloud from Eclipse by W Brian Leonard

This entry looks at how Eclipse, in combination with the Oracle Developer Cloud Service, can be used to support the complete application lifecycle, from inception to production. In between we'll create bugs, create code branches, initiate code reviews, and merge code branches. We'll also slip in some continuous integration and continuous delivery. This is often also referred to as DevOps.

Automating Deployment of the Summit ADF Sample Application to the Oracle Java Cloud Service by W Brian Leonard

Back in April, Shay Shmeltzer produced a video explaining how to automate the build of ADF applications using the Oracle Developer Cloud Service. Shay used the Summit ADF sample application for his example. In this article, Brian will take the next logical step and show you how to automate the deployment of the Summit ADF sample application to the Oracle Java Cloud Service.

 

Check out Brian's blog post here for all the details.

Oracle Developer Cloud Service Integration with GitHub

Want to leverage and existing GitHub repository within a project in Oracle Developer Cloud Service? It's easy. Check out this short video to see how it's done.

No space left on device…

Today I ran into something curious, that I saw a few weeks ago on a training that I gave: the root filesystem  ran full (Oracle Linux 6). At first I did not find anything that caused the problem, but the command 'df -k' indeed suggested a full root filesystem. Using 'du -sh /home/oracle' we found that that folder consumed an unreasonable amount of space. In my case today I found the same. It turns out (more...)

Oracle BPM / SOA Instance Migration Script Issues

In this blog posting I explain some changes you need to apply to get instance migration to work for the Oracle BPM 11g Suite.

While figuring out a couple things about instance migrations I have been doing a few Bundle Patch installations lately. Up to 11.1.1.7.0 + BP4 I had issues with migration even after applying patch 18025048. I just applied BP7 and installed the latest 11.1.1.7.0 (more...)

The Secret Feature of Bucketsets in Oracle Business Rules

In Oracle Business Rules one can use so-called "Bucketsets". I never liked the term as it is not in the dictionary (did you mean bucketseat?), and never understood what is wrong with "list of values" (LoV) as that is what it is.

See for example the following bucketset that defines a list of values to be used for some status field:


Anyway, bucketsets are typically used in decision tables to define the set (more...)

Changes in JDeveloper 12c BPM simulations

While creating a BPM project simulation in the JDeveloper 12c IDE, I noticed some differences in behavior as opposed to 11g. Although the functionality is mostly unchanged, the UI is different. Most of them are more intuitive, but you might want to check them out and save some time.

  1. Simulations are not always listed by default in the BPM project navigator. You can add them by right-clicking on the project, select New … | From (more...)

Using Code Snippets in JDeveloper

In JDeveloper, it can be helpful to set up code snippets to be of easy use later. Personally I use this mainly to set up code snippets for demo purposes and this is rather easy to set up.
First of all, if not already open, open your Components Window in JDeveloper: 

Now open the file that you want to create the code snippet from, this can be any file in JDeveloper as example I opened (more...)

JDeveloper Debugging Tips (Watchpoints & Beep)

In a previous blog post I talked about scoping breakpoints for debugging purposes, next to scoping breakpoints JDeveloper has more interesting debugging features to offer.

I created a simple example to show both the watchpoint as well as the beep functionality. To illustrate this, I created a page with an inputText and a button, both bound to a backingBean. 

This  is the jsf code:
 



The code from the bean is also pretty straight forward:
