My Oracle OpenWorld presentation “Mastering Oracle ADF Bindings: Advanced Techniques” is now available for download from the OpenWorld web site. In this presentation, I talk about
- Reading the Bindings tab
- Bindings in the ADF lifecycle
- Working programmatically with bindings
- Getting the binding from a component
- Working with dynamic bindings
- Creating a binding programmatically
If you are interested in creating bindings programmatically, you should read Eugene Fedorenko’s blog post on this. He also makes (more...)
After we upgraded our OMS environment we realized that our Harvester wasn’t uploading data to MOS anymore. Of course, you say, you just replaced your former ORACLE_HOME with a new home for 22.214.171.124.
1. Download p5567658_120030_Linux-x86-64.zip or the latest OCM installer for your environment. You’ll find a tab for downloading OCM on your front page in MOS. While you are there you should also download the Quick Start guide.
2. Unzip (more...)
I’m super looking forward to next weeks DevOps Enterprise Summit in San Francisco. You might ask “Why?!” since I’m a database guy and not a DevOps guy. I can understand that reaction.
I don’t know about you, but when I hear the term DevOps I have to roll my eyes and think “oh, the latest greatest tech industry buzzword.” So why would I as a DBA care about DevOps? With DevOps, as with (more...)
This article describes how to standardize your JDeveloper Installation as requested in Planning & Getting Started – Team, Skills and Development Environments. It is part of the ADF Architecture Practice lessons and describes the installation with examples for windows.
In this version the Oracle Universal Installer allows the silent installation of JDeveloper. All what you need is the installer file for your platform (e.g. jdev_suite_121300_win64.exe) and a response file. You (more...)
Log buffer space is a simple, yet frequently misunderstood wait event. The main reason for that is probably its name. It sounds as if it points immediately to the answer: if space in the log buffer is the issue, then increasing it surely should resolve it. Well, unfortunately even though log buffer space is simple, it’s not that simple.
Log buffer is an area in memory (SGA, to be more specific) where (more...)
When I started this blog, almost 6 years ago I had a clear purpose: give back. I had extracted so much useful information from the internet and in early 2009 it was time to give back. Publish my tricks, secrets, tips, etc. I then moved into Oracle and now I can’t disclose everything I know. […]
More and more people have been asking me how Delphix compares with Oracle EM 12c Cloud Control with Snap Clone.
Delphix compliments Oracle. Oracle and Delphix are partners. Delphix is an Oracle Gold ISV partner and we collaborated at Oracle Open World on hosting hands on Delphix labs.
Delphix ads value to Oracle by enabling Oracle customers to more efficiently and easily make copies of there databases. Databases are typically copied from a production (more...)
Two most popular causes for log file sync waits are redo filesystem I/O and CPU (or CPU scheduling). I’d like to share an example of a third scenario.
A few days ago, I noticed a weird spike in log file sync average duration on a production 11.2 database:
round(time_delta/1e3/nullif(waits_delta,0), 1) avg_wait_ms,
e.total_waits - lag(e.total_waits) over (partition by e.event_name (more...)
It is common knowledge, or at least it should be, that Oracle has
released version 126.96.36.199 in June 2014. which has a feature called
“Oracle In-Memory”. The name is a tad confusing, since many
features were called “in-memory” before, from “Very Large
Memory” to Times 10 product.
This “In Memory” option is a licensed product featuring
columnar storage, in addition to the normal buffer storage, almost
identical to IBM’s “Blu acceleration” (more...)
Well, the annual spectacle of enormous proportions has come to a conclusion again. And thats probably the first reason I’d recommend OpenWorld to anyone who works with Oracle who has never been to it. It’s a jaw dropping moment just to see the scale of the event, and how impressively its organised in terms of facilities, lunches, registration and the like.
But onto the technical elements, here’s my impressions of this years conference:
1) Big (more...)
Although there had been many analyst and Oracle ACE briefings for much of the preceding week, Sunday night was the ‘proper’ opening for Oracle OpenWorld 2014. It kicked off with Larry’s first keynote of the conference. (He traditionally does two, however skipped the second last year to watch the thrilling finale to the 2013 America’s Cup.)
His hour long address was given over exclusively to the cloud. Here’s a summary of the important points (more...)
Most of the time when talking about Talend jobs, people think of standard ETL (Extract, Transform, Load). But in some cases there’s the need to check the incoming data before loading them into the target rather than just transforming it. We refer to this process as E-DQ-L (Extract, Data Quality, Load).
One of the things that you might want to check before loading is schema compatibility. (more...)
The big annual Oracle event is almost here – starting Sunday 28 Sep with the User Group Sunday followed by four days of presentations in around 50 tracks!
If the agenda seems a bit overwhelming, read the OTech Magazine Special OpenWorld Issue to find some of the highlights and can’t-miss sessions.
My sessions are:
- Mastering Oracle ADF Bindings: Advanced Techniques (UGF3484). Sunday Sep 28 at 10am in Moscone South room 270
- Starting Your Oracle Application (more...)
September 26, 2014 (Back to the Previous Post in the Series) As I was walking from the back of the facility where I work to my office just recently, I started repeatedly saying to myself as I approached the office door, “that huge computer was not here when I started calling my office a second home“. I […]
What are the real technical talks at OOW amid all the marketing fluff? I don’t know all of them but I can vouch for the following
||Jeremiah Wilton, Marc Fielding
||M South 309
||24/7 Availability with Oracle Database Application Continuity
||M South 308
||Analyzing Twitter Data with Hadoop – Live Demo

Its day minus 3, or day +1 depending on your point of view at Openworld 2014.
I’m here a few days early for the Ace Director briefings, where a selection of product managers provide an insight into what is coming in the Oracle world, either at Openworld or in the coming year.
I must admit, I arrived to the briefings somewhat sceptical because a couple of years ago, when I was last at the briefings, (more...)
Next week during Oracle Open World, be sure and come on Monday and Tuesday to the free Oaktable World and on Tuesday to Delphix hands on lab and free 90 day trial version at #CloneAttack at the same venue as Oaktable World. The labs will also be joined by DBvisit for #RepAttack and Solarwinds (Confio) for #MonitorAttack.
