Als je dit leest en je bent Oracle professional – ontwikkelaar of administrator – is de kans groot dat je jouw carriere bent gestart in de jaren ’90, in het tijdperk van Oracle7, Oracle Forms en Client/Server applicaties – net voor de opkomst van Java, internet, mobiel en SOA. Misschien ligt je start daar nog wel voor en misschien ben je van een tikje later. Maar in elk geval: je hebt een solide fundament en al vele jaren ervaring in Oracle technologie.
Nu is het 2012. En de afgelopen jaren is de technologie in hoog tempo ontwikkeld. Web 2.0 applicaties en multi-tier architecturen dienden zich aan en SOA, Service Bus en BPM zijn opgekomen. Java is overal – en HTML 5 staat op het punt om Flash en Silverlight te verdringen, in desktop browsers en in mobiele devices. Eindgebruikers worden mondiger en veel-eisender en real-time, push-enabled, BI-gedreven dashboards en multi-channel takenlijsten worden in snel itererende agile-projecten gerealiseerd.
Oracle 11g Database doet alle simpele DBA taken zelf – en de uitdaging voor de Database Administrator is verschoven naar groter en interessanter, zeker als 24/7 beschikbaarheid, virtualisatie en de cloud als infrastructuur opduiken. More >
In this blog I will describe how to create a Report with JasperReport in Java. For this purpose I have used the Communitie edition of iReport. This edition contains besides JasperReport also iReport. iReport is a report designer for JasperReport. You can download it from http://jasperforge.org/projects/ireport
After installation I started iReport to design a report. I have design a report to create CD booklets. It contains the name of the artist, an album title, an image, the tracklist and the lyrics of these tracks.
CometD 2 Java Client Sample – open project in NetBeans based on Maven pom file, modify sources and run Java Based Comet Client1
On the heels of previous articles that described setting up NetBeans (http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14661/first-experiences-and-getting-started-with-glassfish-3-1-and-netbeans-7-x-its-a-breeze), Tomcat 7 (http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14688/installing-tomcat-7-and-configuring-as-server-in-netbeans) and the CometD 2 environment (http://technology.amis.nl/blog/14709/running-cometd-2-examples-locally-on-tomcat-using-maven-and-netbeans), this article describes how I opened the Java Client Examples from the CometD project in NetBeans (creating a NetBeans project based on the Maven pom.xml included in the CometD distribution), made a few changes to the source and ran the sample from within NetBeans. Within minutes, the sample was running and ready for further manipulation.
The option to create a NetBeans project based on a pom.xml is very useful. The overall speed and responsiveness of NetBeans is also very pleasant.
In my previous post I’ve shown how to create a composite in the Oracle SOA Suite with a simple decision table in a Business Rule Engine component. For that post I had used quite a simple data model resulting in a small xml/xsd tree. For our project I wanted to repeat the exercise with the real data model, so a larger xml tree defined by multiple imported xsd files. Unfortunately it wasn’t as easy as I hoped for. In this second blog post about the Business Rule Engine I’ll show you about the difficulties I had and how I’ve solved them. (more…)
The functional requirement was a little unusual. The page should either show all master-records or – depending on the value of a parameter – it should show exactly one master-record joined with exactly one detail-record. The use case was valid – that was exactly the functionality that was required.
In terms of EMP and DEPT -I like to always simplify things to express them in EMP and DEPT terms – , we should either see all Departments (and no Employee data) or we should see the data for a specific Employee joined with the data for its corresponding Department. And of course we just one to create a single page, and make it as simple as possible to create that page.
A simplistic page that supports this functionality could like this:
when a specific Employee is requested and
when all Departments should be shown, because no single Employee is asked for.
Now that the UKOUG annual conference in Birmingham is over, it’s time to write my thoughts down. As this was the second time that I attended the UKOUG conference, I already knew that it is a big conference. Lots of great speakers and a very good agenda. On the agenda were very interesting session, sometimes making it very hard to choose which session to go to. Guess you can’t complain about that.
On the Sunday before the actual conference starts, the OakTable organized a special day. Originally I didn’t plan to attending this day, as I was flying in in the afternoon. Turned out, I was on time to attend Connor McDonald’s session. Lucky me, Connor is an awesome presenter, so I decided to stay for the rest of the day. Very enjoyable, they even had OakTable beer before the final OakTable panel session. In the evening there was the Ace dinner, in a nearby Thai restaurant. Good company, good food. A little nerdy perhaps, but as it turned out there were 42 Ace’s and Ace Directors attending. On Monday I attended some really good sessions, like Kyle Hailey on SQL Tuning, Bryn Llewellyn on Using the PL/SQL Hierarchical Performance Profiler, and Connor McDonald on Partitioning 101.
