While the double entendre of ‘SUNday’ no longer exists, this first day is still an important day. To set the stage, manage expectations, build on the atmosphere and layout the roadmap (starting that sometimes not even subtle massaging of the minds). The keynote sessions are the key events that define scope and themes for the conference.
Java is very much on the move again. After the virtual stand still just before and for a while after Oracle took over (from) Sun, last year saw a dramatic increase in the Java movement. This year that thread continues. Not with many spectacular announcement, but with a solid pursuit of earlier roadmaps and an apparently good collaboration between vendors in the Java space. The one big elephant in the room – that is actually not in the room at JavaOne – is Google. Otherwise for example, Oracle staff happily shared the stage for this keynote session with IBM.
This year’s overall slogan for JavaOne is: Make the future Java.
It is very much an invitation from Oracle to help bring the Java platform forward. In many ways: ideas, feedback, testing, propagating, creating code, joining JSR committees etc. Oracle and other vendors More >
Just finished my Birds of a Feather XMLDB panel session in the Marriott Hotel and now looking back on a event full day. It all started of with a Keynote session with among others Mark Hurd. the most interesting bit, in my honest opinion, was the announcement of more details in Oracle 12c. I will come back later on this, as far as I am allowed being a beta participant, but hereby some shots from the Keynote session that will give you a pretty good idea on usefulness of pluggable databases in Oracle 12c.XMLDB News
So with all this excitement going on about 12c, are there already some small details about new XMLDB functionality. Via a Tom Kyte presentation, Hands-on Labs and some other sessions, the following details were made available to the public. Keen on XMLDB stuff, this is what I picked up.
- XMLDB is now an integrate, mandatory part of the database
- XQuery Update facility, already available in 188.8.131.52, is now a fully supported standards in 12c and onwards
- XQuery Full Text search, is now available, in Oracle 12c
- XMLType CLOB based storage will be deprecated in Oracle 12c
As with all Oracle 12c related things at this time, Oracle will have the last word if it also More >
Yesterday was a busy day for me. While still recovering from a jetlag, I was part of two sessions. The first one was a team effort. With Lucas Jellema, Aino Andriessen, Ronald van Luttikhuizen, Guido Schmutz and me we did a demonstration of Fusion Middleware Development in front of ‘a live studio audience’. The show was moderated by Chris Muir and Duncan Mills. A good report of this session can be found here.
Halfway into this session I had to leave because my session on Mobile Development with JDeveloper and ADF was up next.
About 180 people pre registered for this session, so I was pretty nervous.
As you can see in this picture (taken with the ADF mobile application using the ADF mobile device datacontrol) there were a lot of people interested.
Because ADF mobile is still in beta I was not allowed to tell everything that I know, but still I was able to give a good overview of mobile development with Jdeveloper and ADF. I will publish the slides as soon as ADF mobile is GA. What I can do however is point you to OTN where you can find the Mobile Browser application that I showed you. Find it here otn mobile.
Also you find a lot of other information regarding mobile development More >
ADF Mobile….. or not ?
I was hoping to hear that ADF mobile was going to be GA very soon, but Oracle ADF Mobile GA was NOT yet announced in this session. Thar leads me to conclude that it will not released during Oracle Open World. But nevertheless the product looks great.
A lot of nice demos, both on simulator and on device. I realy like Dennis’ demo where he shows of the summit application on device. The thematic map with custom image and hotspots really is very nice ! For sure Oracle will support Android and iOS, and if a third or even fourth platform is required, it will be supported….
Also there was a very quick mentioning of the fact that ADF Business Components can be exposed as REST very soon. Nothing more and nothing less on this statement. This makes sense from an ADF mobile perspective, as ADF mobile preferes REST services to connect to the Enterprise Database or Business Services.
Oracle Developer Cloud Service.
The development lifecycle goes into the cloud. The developercloud supports the full development lifecycle including versioning, wiki, issuetracking and build automation. Versioning uses GIT. The cloud WIKI is based on wikitech or confluence, and issue More >
Last night, Oracle Open World 2012 kicked off with the keynote session by Larry Ellison. In just under one hour, and with a novelty for Larry watchers (no more “next slide please”),
Oracle’s CEO had a number of interesting announcements.
Oracle will provide cloud services (no surprise) on all three tiers: SaaS, PaaS and (the surprise) IaaS.
We did it again! The team rejoined for the fourth Live FMW Application Development show, this time at Oracle Open World 2012 during the ADF EMG community event put together by Chris Muir. For three hours, we demonstrated to an audience of some 100 how you can create an application across four tiers – UI (ADF), Process (BPM), Service Integration (SOA Suite) and Database – that is completely integrated and provides end to end business process support. It is a great session to do and for the audience a pretty unique opportunity to learn about how the different pieces of FMW fit together and are used in real life. Note that most sessions at OOW are on one of the components only, not on the combination of them.
Some of the results to come out of this live demo show:
