Why I’m Excited About Oracle Integration Cloud Service – New Video

By Bruce Tierney Oracle February 26, 2015 

Having worked with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) products for many years, I have come to the conclusion that,

Understanding SQL

From time to time someone publishes a query on the OTN database forum and asks how to make it go faster, and you look at it and think it’s a nice example to explain a couple of principles because it’s short, easy to understand, obvious what sort of things might be wrong, and easy to fix. Then, after you’ve made a couple of suggestions and explained a couple of ideas the provider simply fades into (more...)

Optimizing the PL/SQL Challenge IV: More OR Condition Woes

In the previous post in the PL/SQL Challenge optimization series, we'd made huge performance gains simply by removing optional bind parameter clauses. The main body of the query is still doing a significant amount of work however and taking several seconds to execute. Fortunately there are simple changes we can make to improve its performance. Let's take a look.

UKOUG Systems Event 2015

ukougI have a bone to pick with UKOUG. I’m coming from Birmingham and I’m a lazy git, so why the heck am I on in the first slot? :) It was a 04:30 start to the day, for a train journey starting at 05:50. I could have got a later train, but it would have been busier and more importantly, more expensive… After putting the latest of my writing tips posts live and lying in the (more...)

Bash Arrays & Oracle

Last week, I wrote about how to use bash arrays and the MySQL database to create unit and integration test scripts. While the MySQL example was nice for some users, there were some others who wanted me to show how to write bash shell scripts for Oracle unit and integration testing. That’s what this blog post does.

If you don’t know much about bash shell, you should start with the prior post to learn about (more...)

Docker – Take Two – Starting From Windows with Linux VM as Docker Host by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002My first attempt with Docker was from my Windows host machine using boot2docker, as described in this article: Boot2docker is a great tool for being able to work with Docker on a Windows machine. However, I ran into limitations – such as not being able to create containers with the GUI applications running in them. Besides, Linux seems to be – for now at least – the more natural environment for Docker. (more...)

Oracle Midlands : Event #9

oracle-midlandsThe traffic on the way to Oracle Midlands Event #9 was a complete nightmare! There are a bunch of roadworks around the city that are making the traffic movement really problematic at the moment. Added to that, the always slow M6 was causing tailbacks along the Aston Express Way into the city. The traffic islands were all blocked, with people blocking exits and jumping red lights in a desperate attempt to get on them. Fortunately (more...)

Installing Enterprise Manager 12c For Testing

A question I get asked fairly often when I’m at conferences, either during the Q&A for my sessions or in general chit chat (a.k.a. networking) afterwards is “I want to play around with the features in Enterprise Manager 12c but don’t want to do that in our Production environment. How do I go about installing a copy of Enterprise Manager 12c somewhere else in the easiest way as a test environment?” The (more...)

Groovy Tuesday: Using Data Types In Your Scripts

For use within Application Composer it also supports ADF (oracle.jbo) data objects such as Row and RowSet, and you can find more about these (more...)
