The new Database Express or DB Express database utility is different from the former DB Console. It is based on flash and “built-in” the database. To give you a small overview (sneak peek) into this great new tool for, for example, database performance tuning, hereby some pictures to create some appetite. I created some have load on my database, to make it a bit more interesting…Main Menu
The main menu has a section for “Configuration”, “Storage”, “Security” and “Performance” (more…)
Oracle DB Express is the new replacement for Oracle DB Console in the Oracle 12c database. Here are some first steps to get started.
Oracle DB Express makes use of what is called the “XDB Protocol Server”, which among others supports the Oracle APEX standalone PL/SQL Gateway. For people who are unknown still how to set this up, hereby some ideas how to get started with this cool new administrative alternative.
First enable the HTTP functionality of the XDB Protocol Server. You are allowed to do this via the SYS account or have the XDBADMIN role.
- Check if it is enabled via:
Is this one of my highlights? No not really, but it is a remarkable one. Oracle XMLDB functionality is now mandatory and can not be uninstalled. As mentioned in the new feature section of the Oracle XMLDB Developers Guide for Oracle 12c:
Oracle XML DB is now a mandatory component of Oracle Database. You cannot uninstall it, and there is no option not to include it when you create Oracle Database. It is automatically installed when you create a new database or (if not existing already) when you upgrade an existing database to Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (18.104.22.168).

Today was the first day of the two day Masterclass “Understanding Storage” by James Morle at AMIS.
After having reserved my participation in this Masterclass on March 12th, the first day has finally arrived. My colleague Marco Gralike already blogged about the contents of this Masterclass therefore I will not repeat it here. James is well known in the Oracle community, not in the least for his book: Scaling Oracle 8i. That book was recommended to me today by another participant and is available here. I must confess I’ve probably downloaded it years before but have never gotten around to reading it properly. (more…)

Hopelijk zien we jullie misschien weer tijdens de Masterclass over Oracle storage “Understanding storage met Oracle ACE Director James Morle” en anders hopelijk tot een volgende keer bij AMIS in Nieuwegein.
AMIS is spending a lot of effort keeping our people up-to-date with the latest knowledge needed to help our customers the best way we can. Traditionally we also always try to share our knowledge with customers and others, via social media or conferences, and while abroad learning from others at the same time. It is not always possible to go to those international events to learn from the best, so that’s why we invite, from time to time, those special people over here in Holland. After being able to organize special sessions with Oracle ACE Directors Doug Burns, Pete Finnegan and others, I am now honored to announce a two day masterclass with Oracle ACE Director James Morle on Thursday 6th and Friday 7th of June 2013.
