Groovy Workshop for Oracle Partners

On the 17th June we partnered up with two colleagues from Oracle UK Solution Consulting and ran the first of hopefully a repeatable one day workshop covering the basics of using Groovy in Oracle Sales Cloud. It was based on a requirement where we'd seen many basic Groovy usage questions from Oracle Partners and needed to offer them something more. The intention was simply to help people understand the basics of when, where, why and (more...)

In dit rapport gaat het om de volwassenheid van organisaties die cloudapplicaties inzetten. De resultaten zijn veelzeggend. Organisaties die te beschouwen zijn als cloudleiders zijn ook zakelijk gezien succesvoller. Er bestaat volgens het rapport (more...)

Old ventures and new adventures

I have some news, two items actually.

First, today (it’s still 18th June in California) is my blog’s 8th anniversary!

I wrote my first blog post, about Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting, exactly 8 years ago, on 18th June 2007 and have written 229 blog posts since. I had started writing and accumulating my TPT script collection a couple of years earlier and now it has over 1000 files in it! And no, I don’t remember (more...)

The New PL/SQL Challenge Site Available: plsqlchallenge.oracle.com

Well, it took a little bit longer than I'd hoped, but the Oracle-ized version of PLSQLChallenge.com is now up and running.

plsqlchallenge.oracle.com

Hopefully you will find very little changed about the site. Here are some things you should be aware of:

1. MOST IMPORTANT! If you have played the PL/SQL Challenge with an email address (more...)

Create #em12c users fast and easy!

Over the last few months, I’ve been working a project where I’ve started to dive into EM CLI and the value that EM CLI brings to cutting down on doing things like creating Enterprise Manager users. Hence the reason for this post.

Note: If you haven’t looked into EM CLI yet, I encourage you to do so. A good starting point is here. Plus there is a whole book written on the topic by some (more...)

Java Cloud Service: Scheduling – Quartz

The Java Cloud Service (JCS) provides a platform to develop and deploy business applications in the cloud. In Fusion Applications Cloud deployments customers do not have the option to deploy custom applications developed with JDeveloper to ensure the integrity and supportability of the hosted application service. Instead the custom applications can be deployed to the JCS and integrated to the Fusion Application Cloud instance.

This series of articles will go through the features of JCS, (more...)

In a proud moment for me, it appears that Mark Hurd, CEO of Oracle, has mentioned my flashdba blog during the Oracle Q4 2015 results call. At least, that’s what I’m reading into this section from the transcript published by Seeking Alpha:

We grew in storage in the quarter and this is — really we are going through a shift in storage now. We released our SAN product FS1 in the quarter which (more...)

How to configure Power Distribution Units on Exadata X5

I’ve done several Exadata deployments recently and I have to say of all the components PDUs were hardest to configure. Important to notice that unlike earlier generations of Exadata the PDUs in X5 are Ehnanced PDUs and not Standard.

Reading the public documentation (Configuring the Power Distribution Units) it says that on PDUs with three power input leads you need to connect the middle power lead to the power source. Well I’ve done (more...)

Using relationships is the recommended way to access data in your Groovy scripts, as it leverages the underlying View (more...)

12c new feature [PDB save state]

Oracle 12c is released with so many new features for DBA perspective. PDB save state is one of the feature DBA were waiting for.

DBAs were needed to write a database startup event trigger to open PDB during container startup. Just think off, if you have 100 PDBs (more...)
