OOW13: Sneak Preview of the Major Announcements?! In-Memory Database, PaaS (Database and Java) and M6 big memory machine0
Recent press releases as well as the comment provided by Oracle’s top brass around the FY14 Q1 earning provide some insight in what the key stories seem likely to be during this year’s Oracle OpenWorld conference. Note: I write this article before having any real information (that would put be under embargo such as a NDA).
Some remarks around the FY14-Q1 earning report by Mark Hurd seem to suggest certain areas of interest: “….a couple of comments about Oracle OpenWorld, which is next week. We plan to have roughly 60,000 people at the event in San Francisco from 145 countries. We expect to have 2 million attendees online.
And we will make some significant product announcements at the event as well. We’ll be introducing Oracle 12c in-memory database. We’ll be talking about it, being able to deliver 100x faster application performance using our new architectural approach.

The attraction of APEX has increased tremendously with the recent launch of the Oracle Cloud. APEX already supported departmental development and deployment of business applications with minimal involvement from the IT department (only a database needed be made available). Positioned as the ideal replacement for MS Access, APEX probably has managed better to capture the eye of developers and was used for enterprise application development at least as much as for the kind of tactical applications that Oracle strategically positioned it for.
With APEX as PaaS & DevaaS from the Oracle Cloud, a leap is made to a much higher level of business value. Now the IT department is not even needed to make infrastructure available with a database running on it. All the business needs is a credit card. And the business application that is developed, managed and used from the cloud through a standard browser can now just as easily be accessed by users from around the world as by users from the business department itself. As a bonus – the development of the APEX application is also done in the cloud – with no special demands on the location or the enterprise access privileges of the More >

If you are an ADF developer – and The Netherlands are within reach for you – then Friday 21st of December is a day to mark in your diary. On that day, the shortest of the year in our Northern Hemisphere, we present the Advanced ADF Master Class – in the spirit of the holiday season.

Yesterday (16th October), 10 days of the end of the yearly Oracle show in San Francisco, AMIS organized its ‘Review from Oracle Open World 2012′ session with an overview of news, trends, announcements, special finds and interesting rumors . This session was ‘sold out’ (even though it was free). For close to 4 hours, the AMIS crew at OOW enlightened the audience about their main conclusions and greatest inspirational moments from the conference. Our slides from the seven presentations that together made up this interesting evening are now available on SlideShare to further digest.

When you have many development servers or cloud servers which runs Oracle software and then you know that configuration management of those servers is very important and must be repeatable. When you configure and install all that software by hand, then you also know that the chance is high that those servers are not exactly the same. This can lead to many configuration issues, tons of documentation pages and days for a new environment is released.
With Puppet of puppetlabs you can automate installations and configuration of all these servers and check the status or read the configuration of the servers. Puppet is open source and it works perfectly with VMware or cloud providers like amazon. There is also Puppet Enterprise which is free up to 10 nodes.
If you want to learn Puppet you can follow this guide and download the puppet test VirtualBox or VMware image.
On github I made a puppet wls module which can retrieve all the Oracle WebLogic software, domains + weblogic artifacts, running nodemanager + weblogic servers data and displays these values as facts in the Puppet Dashboard.
Second part of the puppet module are scripts to automatically install the followingMore >
