Performance of Enterprise Java Applications is a requirement and usually a challenge. Business requirements on systems can be stiff, successful systems can easily be overloaded and complex application architectures can add a burden too. Improving performance by tuning the application after it has been built seldomly renders huge improvements. By taking a step back – or even two – and regarding the application and the performance from a distance, it becomes possible to really design and architect for performance according to the ISYITF-method: it is staring you in the face. Order of magnitude improvements are attainable through logical reasoning and careful application of multi-tier architecture principles and JEE platform facilities.
This is the abstract for the session Thinking Through Java Enterprise Performance that I will be presenting on Tuesday October 2nd at JavaOne 2012 (BOF 4712 4:30 PM – 5:15 PM – Parc 55 – Cyril Magnin I.
This years visit to Oracle Open World is for me the best of both worlds. First of all I get to attend one of the biggest, if not the biggest, IT conferences in the world. Second, I have two presentations. Both are on Sunday afternoon. The first one is a Fusion Middleware Live Development session where we as a team show you the steps involved in creating an application using nearly all parts of Fusion Middleware. My role in the team is to explain how we build the UI part of the application and how we used ADF to do that. Also I will show you how you can create an interactive dashboard using DVT components such as graphs and gauges. More info on this session can be found here.
Right in the middle of this session I have to leave the room in order to go to my next presentation. This presentation is called “mobile development with Oracle JDeveloper and ADF”. In this session I show you some of the options that you have if you want to extend your enterprise application to mobile devices. I cannot go into much detail yet. Having said that, I’ve probably said enough. More info is available here.
After my presentation I head straight to the Oracle Benelux Networking Event which is More >
For me it all started out very stressful. I overslept yesterday, or the day before, and noticed that it already was 08.25 AM. My flight would leave at 09.50, so the rush to the airport was very painful. Seriously hope I won’t have too many speeding tickets in my attempt to checkin somehow anyway on my drive from Utrecht to Schiphol near Amsterdam.
By some miracle, I made it, just in time with 5 minutes before boarding. Another thing that helped was the fact, due to security checks, the plane was delayed by 30 minutes or so. In the plane I caught up with a lot of good old friends like Markus Eisele, Frits Hoogland and Roel Hartman besides Lucas and Alex. After a 10 hour flight, a 30 minute drive by bus, we all arrived at the Sofitel Hotel near Oracle HQ were, bitten by the time difference, I went to bed early.

The next day at Oracle HQ, yesterday, we got our first ACE Director product Oracle product briefing and besides all info released about what’s going to be hot during Oracle Open World this year and what’s not, you can imagine while reading the following news released yesterday via Bloomberg, some More >
The show of the year is around the corner: on Sunday it will all start again, the Oracle Open World conference. Tens of thousands of developers, architects, administrators, project managers, decision makers and others involved with Oracle products one way or another are gathering in and around San Francisco. AMIS will attend with an 8 person team. We will present, network, publish and investigate. As much as we bring our knowledge and experience to the conference, we also want to find out many things. A quick list of some of the questions that are on the top of my head to get answered during thus year’s conference:Cloud
After last year’s announcements, we have not really seen any concrete cloud instances from Oracle. I hope to learn during this conference where exactly we stand and are headed with the Oracle Cloud – both the Application and the Platform Services. My focus will be on the latter in particular: what is the functionality and non-functionality offered by the various services – from Database Service to Web Services (PHP, Ruby and Python support) and Oracle Cloud Developer Services Hudson (for continuous integration, Git and GitHub for source control, wiki and tasks for More >
OOW 2012: Tips, trucs en ervaringen rondom Oracle OpenWorld & JavaOne – AMIS publiceert een handzaam boekje (of download) met tips voor een top-conferentie -0
San Francisco is de city of love. Iedereen is er vriendelijk en geeft je het gevoel dat je elkaar al jaren kent. San Francisco is ook de city of fog. In de ochtend is de stad bedekt met een koele zeemist die de stad in nevelen hult en je dwingt om voorzichtig te rijden.
Tijdens Oracle OpenWorld en JavaOne komen deze twee aspecten bij elkaar. Je bent onder gelijkgestemden, de Oracle-afficionados uit de hele wereld. Tegelijk zijn de omvang van Oracle OpenWorld, JavaOne en de mogelijkheden van San Francisco zo overweldigend dat het beeld onduidelijk wordt.
Daarom heeft AMIS een handzaam boekje uitgebracht waarin we al onze ervaring rondom Oracle OpenWorld, JavaOne en San Francisco hebben gebundeld. Alles wat je wilt weten voordat je weer vertrekt, om goed voorbereid te zijn en achteraf het ‘had ik maar geweten -gevoel te voorkomen!
I posted, as (my) tradition dictates, the Oracle agenda overview of XMLDB sessions during Oracle Open World 2012. I already signed up for the HOL10055 session but yesterday I also got a quick peek of it’s contents this year. And yes, I can promise you, it is a must go, if you are dealing with or are interested in all things XML in your Oracle database.
The hands-on lab has topics like, among others,
- Using XQuery in Oracle Database 11g Release 2
- Optimizing XML Storage and processing with XML Schema.
- Relational access to XML content
- XML access to Relational Content
… also practical items like, loading XML, how to performance optimize XML in the database, and/or partition methods useful if your dealing with enormous amounts of data. This year it covers all XML use cases, if it’s structured, semi-structured or unstructured, via the latest database XMLDB functionality like the XQuery Update Facility (2011 W3C recommendation) or unstructured data retrieval via the also new W3C 2011 recommendation, the XQuery Full-Text standard.
To give you some small insight into those two new W3C XQuery recommendation extensions:
