I was asked by Jože Senegačnik, if I would be would be interested in doing a Masterclass/Seminar in Slovenia and, yes of course, I really liked the idea. So after having a quick look in my agenda, regarding my free time, we started to set things up.
This 2 day seminar will take place the 27th & 28th of March in Ljubljana, Slovenia, at Poslovna hiša Unija, Tržaška cesta 515, 1251 Brezovica pri Ljubljani. The seminar is organized by DbProf d.o.o. in cooperation with SIOUG, the Slovenian Oracle User Group. The early bird offering will be ending on the 16.3.2011 (have a look here for more details), so have a go at it.
Be aware, there are only a few days to go (the 16th/this Friday) and then the “early bird” offer ends and the (current) room is filling up quickly…
Its Sunday and its raining outside. The nice weather on Saturday (approx. sunny / 20 degrees Celsius) has gone. After a decent flight on Friday where I actually made it to switch in Houston from the international Continental flight, going through customs and pick the next one, a domestic Continental Express flight, within the boundaries of 1 and 1/2 hour. I was so fast that switching for one flight to the other, that apparently my luggage didn’t manage to travel with the last flight. So after I found out that my luggage was still somewhere in Houston, I got from Dallas Love Field to the Omni Hotel in Las Colinas, Irving, where the Hotsos conference will be held again. The whole area is a bit in shambles because they are rebuilding a lot of the environment. While getting to the Grapevine Mills mall yesterday, I noticed that they also a building a new Irving Convention Center along the highway. Another addition to the already crowded Dallas/Plano/Irving Metroplex.
This story is long overdue and no its NOT about the Oracle Database 11g Database File System (DBFS). Its about an “undocumented” NFS functionality that, maybe someday, will be serviced by the XMLDB XDB Protocol Adapter. This post is “long overdue” because the actual attempts to try to figure it out were done during the bank holidays between X-mas and new year 2009.
So what is it all about. I once discovered in the Oracle 11gR1 documentation a small entry in the xmlconfig.xsd XML Schema regarding NFS elements that look like that they are or will be used for enabling NFS functionality based on the Oracle XMLDB Protocol Server architecture. In those days, when Oracle 11gR1 was just of the shelve, I made a few attempts, based on the xdbconfig.xsd XML Schema to adjust the corresponding xdbconfig.xml file that controls the XDB Protocol Server functionality, to see what would happen. At that time I only was able to get this far (see the picture) and I promised myself that I should look deeper into it trying to figure out if I could get it working and/or what the concepts were that made it tick in the XMLDB architecture but somewhere down the line I just didn’t come to it and it got More >
Here a small advert for one of my events scheduled for this year. On the 24th of Februari I will be giving a Masterclass regarding Oracle XMLDB in Germany. To be precise in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The following will be addressed, but might you attend, then drop me a line (marco dot gralike at amis dot nl) regarding your specific topics and I will see if I can address it within the bounderies of the course setup):
- Provide a holistic view of Oracle’s XML Database features
- Provide an in-depth view on how XML should be handled in general and in the Oracle XML database
- Provide realistic solutions, architectures, to make an XML environment work
- Show how to avoid problems while working in an XML environment
- Help to gain the optimum in performance and functionality from your XML database environment
The course is helpful for people who want to know more about Oracle XML DB and have some experience working with it, architects, dba or developers alike. I will see how good my German is during the day and if I feel very brave enough, switch to German during the course.
