Events are quite relevant in modern computer architecture. At various levels of the stack. Events can represent various things – from IoT based measurements and logistical updates to web site activities and business transactions to operational IT metrics and situations. Events can be produced at peak speeds and high volumes – and may require rapid and robust processing. Apache Kafka has grown into almost the de facto foundation for event processing. Apache Kafka provides high (more...)
The Oracle PaaS cloud is turning into the next generation application server platform. More specifically: Oracle has announced the roadmap for the Application Container Cloud Service (not to be confused with the plain Container Cloud Service which runs pre built Docker containers without looking into them). The Application Container Cloud Servic
- accepts and runs applications (not containers) implemented in a number of technologies – Node.js, Java SE, PHP, Python, Ruby, Go and Spark/Hadoop (more...)
This morning, from nowhere, I just thought, “We should have an OTN Appreciation Day!”
Oracle Technology Network (OTN) has had a pretty big roll in my life for over a decade. I download most of the software I use from there. For years the OTN forums have been a great source of information, both directly or when Googling. There are loads of articles and whitepapers. It has an entry point for most products/features that bring together the (more...)
If your E-Business Suite Release environment is configured to support Daylight Saving Time (DST) or
international time zones, it's important to keep your timezone
definition files up-to-date. They were last changed in November 2015 and
released as DSTv25
DSTv27 is now available and certified with Oracle
E-Business Suite Release 12.1. The DSTv27 update includes the
timezone information from the IANA tzdata 2016f. It is cumulative: it
includes all previous Oracle DST updates. (more...)
creating a Service Bus pipeline in JDeveloper 12.2.1 for Oracle Service
Bus 12.2.1, based on a typed, one-way business service (either one way
WSDL based, or Messaging Service with XML request and XSD type with
reply NONE business service) the pipeline won’t correctly use the
request message type. It’s annoying because you cannot easily create
expressions based on the request type, such as drilling open the $body
variable, e.g. (more...)
Having spent the last two weeks at Oracle OpenWorld 2016, what’s the obvious thing to do within a couple of days of getting back? Go to Oracle Midlands to hear more about Oracle 12c Release 2 of course!
First up was Dominic Giles with “Oracle Database 12c Release 2: Whats new?… What’s improved?” I’ve been a big fan of SwingBench forever so the name Dominic Giles has been familiar to me for a (more...)
I am very pleased to announce that Microsoft Edge is certified as a new browser for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. Edge can be used to access EBS Self-Service Web Applications (SSWA) -- i.e. the web-based HTML products in Oracle E-Business Suite that use OA Framework (OAF).
EBS Prerequisites for Edge
No Windows or desktop patches are needed for enabling Edge compatibility with E-Business Suite 12.1 or 12.2.
One of the most requested features in the compliance management area has been a compliance standard for Oracle Database 12c. As most of you would know, Oracle Database 12c has been out for quite some time, and indeed Larry Ellison has just announced at OOW2016 availability of Oracle Database 12cR2 in Oracle’s public cloud offering. However, as I discussed in another post earlier this year, creating a new STIG compliance standard is not a simple (more...)
Attend our September edition of the SOA & BPM Partner Community Webcast live on September 27th 2016 at 16:00 CET.
the latest news from Oracle Open World 2016. A detailed update on new
features of Oracle Platform as a Service and how to position them at
your customers. As part of the Webcast we will introduce the Oracle Open
World kit, an opportunity to you to run a mini conference for your (more...)
the real world, you’ll create your Oracle BAM projects in a development
environment, and when all is well, you will export it to a test or
production environment. Export and import actions are easy to perform
using BAMCommand command-line utility.
In this post, we will learn
how to export Oracle BAM projects from a source environment and then
import it to a target environment.
Download the sample application: BlogProject.zip.

That’s another Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) done, so it’s time to reflect on the event.
I think the most surprising thing for me was how much I enjoyed the User Experience (UX) and Internet of Things (IoT) stuff. I did the UX Strategy Day and the “Oracle Applications User Experience Cloud Exchange” afternoon and they were really fun and interesting. The IoT session took me back to my childhood, playing with wires and breadboards.
For years the (more...)
I just got back from a whirlwind tour that included a trip to San Francisco to visit the Snowflake HQ, attend the annual Oracle ACE Directors briefing, meetings and events at Oracle OpenWorld (OOW), speaking at OakTable World (OTW), then off to Chicago to speak at Enterprise Dataversity. Yes it was packed. And lots of […]
One of the little myths of Oracle appeared on the Oracle-L list server a few days ago – the one that says: “you don’t need a histogram on a single column unique/primary key”.
Not only can a histogram be helpful on a column that’s declared to hold unique values, the optimizer may even spot the need automatically. It’s a little unusual (and probably the result of poor programming practice) but it does happen. Here’s an (more...)
Does this question sound familiar? “We are running the exact same workload in UAT as we do in production, but it behaves completely different. Can you help?”
If it does, then you might find the following post useful, provided you are appropriately licensed to use this feature anyway. I have been working on AWR data for a long time, and one of the best ways to do so according to David Kurtz and others, (more...)
Last week, I attended the Oracle Open World and did a presentation about writing scripts with EMCLI. If you’re not familiar with EMCLI, it’s the command line interface for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control. Here’s my presentation:
Although EMCLI is a very specific topic which appeals only to advanced users, a lot of people attended my session. I would like to thank Ray Smith (IOUG Director (more...)
Oracle Database Release 12c (12.1) introduced a new operator that we can use in SQL queries. The MATCH_RECOGNIZE operator allows us to detect patterns in our relational data. Specifically: it allows us to identify records that mark the beginning of a set of records that together form a pattern. In this set, each record satisifies a certain condition. The fact that in a set of records these conditions are met – in a certain (more...)
I did my usual thing of not sleeping well before an early flight. I’m so nervous about waking up late and missing the flight I can’t sleep properly, which sets me up for a terrible day of travelling…
I was awake before my 04:45 alarm, so I had a shower and messed about on the computer until it was time to leave. I was sharing a car with Gustavo and Alex, who both had (more...)
And here we are. The last day of Oracle OpenWorld 2016…
The first session I went to was a panel session called “Thinking Clearly About Database Application Architecture” with Gerald Venzl, Bryn Llewellyn, Connor McDonald, Toon Koppelaars, Cary Millsap. The session started with an introduction by Toon, explaining how the thick database architecture model is provably superior to the thin database model, especially from a performance perspective. I am definintely in (more...)
