Years ago, when I worked as an Application Support Analyst for a big triple-A Bank, I got acquainted with the BEA product stack.
One of those products was BEA Tuxedo, at that time at the release of 6. I worked at a settlements project, and Tuxedo was used for as distributed transaction processing, to process settlements an clearing messageg from the bank to an international Clearing an Settlements Project, called CLS. It used the SWIFT network to connect; CLSÂ was an international and timezone independent settlements and clearance platform to overcome timezone and bankrupt issues, and prevent a domino effect when an important bank in the chain becomes bankrupt.
Tuxedo is a transaction processing system or transaction-oriented middleware, or enterprise application server for a variety of systems and programming languages.
Tuxedo was designed for high availability and to provideÂ scalable applications to support a lotÂ transactions per second on commonly available distributed systems. It was developed and designed by AT&TÂ if that required online transaction processing (OLTP) capabilities.
Tuxedo is aÂ message routing and queuing system. Requests are sent to named services More >
Yesterday evening we had our annual Oracle Open World review at our office in Nieuwegein. Around eighty people attended and all were very involved with the session. Five AMIS employees were at Oracle Open World, and each one covered one area of interest.
Before dinner Lucas gave an overview of the trends and topics that were covered at Oracle Open World. Just to convey the sheer size of OOW, Peter illustrated this by facts (number of people attending, number of lunches served, etc) as well as by photos. I’m still very impressed that they covered a four lane street (Howard street) by a tent, just to serve lunch… amazing. Marco and myself gave an overview of what AMIS was doing at OOW, as well as the Oracle ACE Directors briefing right before OOW started.
There were a number of goodies that we took from Oracle Open World to give away this evening. We decided to do it a little different this year, we organized a BuzzWord Bingo. Each of the attendees was given a bingo sheet with some of the buzzwords that would be covered during our presentations. Before we went for dinner six people had bingo and got their goodies to take home.
This time we had a Mexican Style dinner, very lovely. More >
The sun is setting in Redwood Shores. The sky is red; the Oracle HQ towers are silhouetted against this dramatic red backdrop. Red, the color San Francisco is about to take on for the Oracle Open World conference.
We are at the end of the first day of the two-day ACE Director product briefing. This is a gathering of the ACE Directors – a fairly select group of experts and community representatives in various areas of Oracle’s product portfolio, including Database, Fusion Middleware, Oracle Applications and various development tools. On the eve of OOW 2010, we get briefed on the strategy for key Oracle products and technologies. A week of announcements and road map presentations has been condensed into two full days. A great opportunity to also plan for the rest of the conference – to learn more about the most interesting announcements of today and tomorrow.
Before today, I had a number of questions on Oracle plans, that I hope to get answered during the conference. These questions are almost like a guide through the conference program and sessions like today’s briefing. Below, I list some of the questions I would like to dive into during this OOW conference, as this will help me More >
We try to do our best, so some extra practice never hurts. If we think such an event or session can be interesting for our Dutch peers, we call it an AMIS Query. An AMIS Query is an in house event; one or more presentations from our AMIS colleagues or outside specialists from other companies. Everyone can attend and AMIS Query, at least, as long as we can logistically can manage it. Drinks and a dinner are provided during these sessions.
We asked the other Dutch Oracle Open World presenters if they also were interested in such an event and this resulted in the following impressive list:
- Steven Davelaar, Oracle Consulting, Nederland – Oracle JHeadstart R11: Unprecedented Productivity in Developing Best-Practice Fusion Web Applications
- Douwe Pieter van den Bos, Caesar Groep B.V., Technology Manager - Designer2APEX: Migrate Your Forms UIs to Oracle Application Express
- Roel Hartman, Logica – Developing a Real-World Logistic Application with Oracle Application Express
- Ronald van Luttikhuizen en Lonneke Dikmans, Approach Alliance - BEA AquaLogic Versus Oracle Fusion Middleware Shootout
- John Copier, IT-Eye – ESB Central: Applying SOA to Master Data Management in the Dutch Public More >
