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.
In a previous post I’ve explained the Schematron standard, how it works and how to use it. In the Oracle SOA Suite you can ‘Validate Semantic’ on the input (request) of a routing rule in a Mediator component by selecting a Schematron file. This is the Schemtron xml file in which you define your validation rules. The SOA Suite takes care of applying them on the request by executing the double transformation. However, to be able to get the Schematron file working you need to declare the namespaces of the input message and rewrite a report rule to an assert rule. In this post I will show you how to do this with the same business rules (so the same Schematron rules and Schematron file) as the last example in a previous blog explaining Schematron. (more…)
People who have attended the UKOUG presentation this year where Mark Drake, Sr. Product Manager XML Technologies / XMLDB, Oracle HQ, and I demonstrated the first principles of the XDB Repository, might have been impressed with its (GEO/KML Spatial, Image EXIF info) capabilities combined with Google Earth. This post will zoom in on how to consume automatically content of Windows Office document (docx).presentations from Marco Gralike
Most (APEX) people know the PL/SQL Gateway functionality of the XDB Protocol Listener, but this is only one very small part of the XDB Repository functionality. To be precise only one “servlet” part of it. Those “servlets” can be based on Java, C or PL/SQL. The PL/SQL Gateway, as it’s name suggests, is based on the PL/SQL part. Another “servlet”, the Native Database Web Service (NDWS), which enables you to create a database SOA endpoint service and more, is based on C code. Beside demonstrating the WebDAV ACL driven security features and database extensibility/interfacing facilities based on the database (no cost option) XMLDB functionality, it also explain one More >
Last Thuesday, Mark Drake, Senior Product Manager and I, delivered a good presentation during UKOUG in Birmingham about how to use your database, via XMLDB functionality, as a file server. The presentation demonstrated as well how you could extent the “standaard” file server (aka your database) functionality with features like, WebDAV driven ACL Security and XDB Repository Events, which enable you to automatically trigger event driven actions based on, for example, file naming, content, creator or others.

During the demonstration in the second half of the presentation, we demonstrated how you can automatically consume the EXIF and KML information embedded in pictures to use it with the Google Earth API. All the code used for this Google Earth demonstration, and more, can be found on the Oracle XMLDB Sample Code page.
Have fun trying it out and if there any questions, post them on the OTN Oracle XMLDB forum.
Absolutely Typical – The whole story on Types and how they power PL/SQL Interoperability (UKOUG, 2011)4
This presentation will hopefully convince database developers that types in the Oracle Database are worth their salt – and more. With the recent improvements in 11gR2, the pieces are available to complete the puzzle of structured and modern programming with a touch of OO and more importantly to create a decoupled, reusable API that exposes services based on tables and views to clients that speak SQL, AQ, PL/SQL, Types, XML or RESTful, through SQL*Net, JDBC or HTTP.
This session shows through many demonstrations how types and collections are defined, how they are used between SQL and PL/SQL and how they can be converted to and from XML and JSON and how they drive Native WebServices as well as RESTful services based on the Embedded PL/SQL Gateway. Everyone doing PL/SQL programming will benefit immediately from this session. Every Database Developer should be aware of Types and Collections. For structured programming, for optimal SQL to PL/SQL integration and for interoperability to client application. This session introduces Types and Collections, their OO capabilities, the conversion to XML and JSON, their use in Native and RESTful WebServices and the pivotal role they can play in More >
At December the 1st, 2011, Oracle announced it’s new major release, the 12c release. As Oracle added the i (internet) at its 8 release, the g(gridcomputing) at its 10 release, now the focus will be on the c(cloudcomputing).
Many new features come out of the fact that Oracle has made its key application server ready for the cloud, that is, ready for to run on enigineered systems, in fact its own Exalogic machine, Oracle’s solution for implementing the cloud.
So let’s take a look what this new release brings us, in this blogpost. There are several new features available in the 12cNew or enhanced WebLogic 12c features
- JAVA EE 6 support all kinds of JEE6 specifications are implemented like :
- JSF 2.0,Java Servlets 3.0Â JPA 2.0 andÂ EJB 3.1.
- Managed Beans 1.0
- WebLogic 12c also supports supports Java SE 7 (and Java SE 6).
- Java language optimizations and Internationalization
- Client and server support
- SSL/TLS 1.2 in JSSE to support JAVA Socket Transport security
- Converged Java VM:JRockit and HotSpot are Â incorporated with the best features from both.The JVM convergence will be a multi-year process, which was confirmed during my presence at Oracle’s Publisher Seminar 2011 during
