JVMD allows administrators to diagnose performance problems in production Java applications. By eliminating the need to reproduce these “production only” problems in QA, it reduces the time required to resolve them. It does not require complex instrumentation or restarting of the application to get in-depth application details. Application administrators (more...)

The New Revenue Recognition Standard: Performance Matters

We have released JAXB 2.1.17.

It has several bug fixes:
- Fixed HashMap unmarshalling bug.
- Fixed wrong ref element generation.

But the main reason for the release was broken Maven dependency for builds 2.1.15/16. Because of missed dependency com.sun.xml.bind.core jar. Now it should be OK :)

Fusion Concepts: Optimistic Locking

The following is a guest post from William Rudge, an Applications Architect in the Fusion SCM Development team at Oracle. 

Have you wondered why you can save a record in Fusion Applications the second time after the first attempt to save gets the error "Record has been updated by another user"?
