On my way to Los Angeles (Long Beach) for KScope 2011 (12 Hours in an airplane) I had plenty of time to do some reading and writing.The book I read was an only very recently (june 2011) published ADF Book. This is not a technical deep dive into ADF, but it focuses on the process of application development.
The book is written by Sten Vesterli an Oracle ACE Director and it is absolutely a good read. (more…)
Here are some practical tips for getting XAMPP running on your Windows 7 machine. I use this for getting my Hudson / Maven / Sonar demonstation environment. There are two issues that can save you a lot of time when you know how to solve them.
- Windows 7, 64 bit.
- Xampp 1.7.4 with Tomcat 7 included. (install via windows installer, nexted through install menu, no special things)
After running the installer there are two issues:
- Apache does not start
- Tomcat will only run command line and not as a Windows service.
The XAMPP control panel does nog give any feedback andÂ command line : apache_start.cmd gives the following error:
[sourcecode] Diese Eingabeforderung nicht waehrend des Running beenden Bitte erst bei einem gewollten Shutdown schliessen Please close this command only for Shutdown Apache 2 is starting … (OS 10048)Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.Â : make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down Unable to open logs

In our current webservice project with JAX-WS in Â JDeveloper Â 126.96.36.199 we have a challenge with calling a webservice. This webservice from a remote organisation does not accept specific SOAP header elements our client application creates – although we followed the contract of the WSDL correctly. Of course this webservice must follow it as well as we have to, but for now we donâ€™t have a choice but to make a workaround. Â How can we remove unwanted elements from a SOAP header? In this blog I will show you how you can do that using a JAX-WS SOAPHandler that inspects the SOAP header and removes specific addressing elements. (more…)
Its almost Christmas and the end of this 2010 year and I keep wondering what will happen, Oracle wise, in 2011. I have, had, my idea’s about what might happen, will happen, if I would be Mr. Larry Ellison. Being “in the trade”, a Oracle geek, since 1993, I have seen some movements like, “the raw iron project”, Mr. Ellison buying nCube, Oracle Powerbrowser, the Oracle network computer, the arrival of InterOffice, Collaboration Suite, Beehive, buying data connector and security service and product companies, building Oracle Fusion from scratch. Most impressive are those fully optimized hardware machines like Exadata and ExaLogic, and the supporting OS Oracle Linux. But hold your horses wasn’t Oracle the “data company”…
Does Oracle still fit in the internet age? Stuff is going fast. ROI, Time to Market are most important. If you miss the change, the new trend, it can kill your company almost instantly (iPhone, Android, Oops: Symbian…). Whatever you think of Oracle, Mr. Ellison’s strategies, IMHO I think that he has vision but sometimes is to fast regarding its implementation. Just like “Google Wave”, you can have a hell of a app/idea, but if it is too early, no one will jump after More >
Just as ODTUG Kaleidoscope and Oracle Open World, the UKOUG Tech-EBS is a great Oracle oriented conference. It’s held in Birmingham but the speakers and participants come from all over Europe and also from America. It covers much of Oracle’s product portfolio including Fusion Middleware development, the e-Business Suite, Server Technology, APEX and much more with an impressive list of speakers both from Oracle as well as from other many companies. There were many high quality presentations and I’ve enjoyed them very much.
My main interests are ADF Fusion development and Application Lifecycle Management, so I spend most of my time in the ‘Design and Development’ and ‘Application Server and Middleware’ tracks and it had a lot to offer:
