I have come across customers running their Virtual Machines (VM) on Oracle VM 2.x wanting to migrate them to Oracle VM 3.x Most of the time the engineers think the migration to 3.x is a lot of work. I have seen situations where they installed fresh new VM’s on Oracle VM 3.x and migrated the applications or they performed full system restores on them. A lot of work …, more than migrating!
The migration of Oracle VM 2.x to 3.x is, simply put, nothing more than importing the VM as a template into Oracle VM 3.x and create a new VM based on this template.
As of Oracle 3.x the only way to import a template, is to upload them using ftp of http(s). A standard approach is to copy the img and cfg files to local storage on, for example, a ftp- of webserver and from there upload them to Oracle VM 3.x as a template. In al this can be a very time consuming job due to network connectivity. Especially when moving to and from DMZ’s through firewalls.
In this article I wil demonstrate a quick and easy way to migrate a VM from Oracle VM 2.x to 3.x Without the hassle of first copying them to a local disk storage and the uploading them to Oracle VM 3.x.
Prerequisites: Network connectivity, ftp or More >
Slides for the presentation I did with Grant Ronald during UKOUG 2011, last week in Birmingham. The abstract for this presentation: “Many organizations run enterprise Oracle Forms applications created in the 90s. They now wonder about the future of their application.This session tells how modernization of the application landscape could take place, using a mix of the latest version of Forms and other technologies like SOA, ADF and perhaps APEX.
Forms 11g integration and extension points are discussed and demonstrated. Forms applications serving internal, professional user groups today are typically by and large suitable for continued use. Modernization of these applications therefore typically focuses on integration – with a SOA environment and Event infrastructure and with new user interfaces and Portals – and to some extent to enhancing user experience and functionality of the application.
This session shows how Forms 11g – part of Fusion Middleware and running on WebLogic Server – can be integrated in a modern Service Oriented Architecture and how it can be embedded in Web 2.0 Portals and Applications. The audience will see how Forms can quite easily get a More >
Migrating the ADF 10g Hierarchical Table Report to JDeveloper & ADF Trinidad and onwards to 11g (RichFaces)
In a recent article, I discussed how to create a fairly structured hierarchical report – table style – using ADF 10g not-so-rich Faces – see creating-a-read-only-hierarchical-table-report-with-adf-10g. The temptation is very large to open the project from that article in JDeveloper 11g and see what I can do with the RichFaces components to spice it up a little.
Before even getting started,. it seems that the popup component can help make things somewhat more attractive, as probably can the chart and gauge components. Furthermore, perhaps the Tree DataBinding is somewhat more versatile in 11g than in 10g and can even further reduce the programmatic effort. And who knows what other benefits 11g RichFaces may offer…
After Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 and Wife 2.0, Oracle introduces the term DBA 2.0. It seems to refer to the DBA of the very near future. The one who can rely on a formidable pal hiding inside the database and taking on many of the boring, repeating tasks as well as advising on some of the tougher challenges when it comes to managing the database. Manageability is one of the focus areas for Oracle in the marketing strategy for the database as well as in the development budget allocation. Lots of time and energy are invested in making the database more manageable and striking the optimal balance between automated management and human decision making.
DBA 2.0 is perhaps also the guy about whom Mark Townsend,Vice President Product Management for Server Technologies, said: "to really screw a system up, you have to be a DBA!". To which he added: (more…)
