I have just completed my first ever presentation on the Expertezed.com network – http://www.expertezed.com/ , a reprise from my session on Oracle OpenWorld 2012. This presentation includes a number of slides regarding 12c features, based on the session and slides from Tom Kyte (Top 12 new features) and my notes from the excellent session CON8511 – Temporal Database Capabilities with the Latest Generation of Database Technology that I attended during the conference.

Yesterday (16th October), 10 days of the end of the yearly Oracle show in San Francisco, AMIS organized its ‘Review from Oracle Open World 2012′ session with an overview of news, trends, announcements, special finds and interesting rumors . This session was ‘sold out’ (even though it was free). For close to 4 hours, the AMIS crew at OOW enlightened the audience about their main conclusions and greatest inspirational moments from the conference. Our slides from the seven presentations that together made up this interesting evening are now available on SlideShare to further digest.
1. Overview, Introduction, Keynote Highlights, Java and Developer Cloud Service, Release Overview and the Innovation Tour – Lucas and Paul AMIS OOW Review 2012- Deel 1 – Lucas Jellema & Paul Uijtewaal from AMIS Services
When you have many development servers or cloud servers which runs Oracle software and then you know that configuration management of those servers is very important and must be repeatable. When you configure and install all that software by hand, then you also know that the chance is high that those servers are not exactly the same. This can lead to many configuration issues, tons of documentation pages and days for a new environment is released.
With Puppet of puppetlabs you can automate installations and configuration of all these servers and check the status or read the configuration of the servers. Puppet is open source and it works perfectly with VMware or cloud providers like amazon. There is also Puppet Enterprise which is free up to 10 nodes.
If you want to learn Puppet you can follow this guide and download the puppet test VirtualBox or VMware image.
On github I made a puppet wls module which can retrieve all the Oracle WebLogic software, domains + weblogic artifacts, running nodemanager + weblogic servers data and displays these values as facts in the Puppet Dashboard.
Second part of the puppet module are scripts to automatically install the followingMore >
Oracle Open World 2012 was the cloud conference. There can be no doubt about the central theme of the conference. In week that had clear skies throughout, Oracle kept telling the story of the Cloud. To be honest: much like it did last year. And after I signed up for the Oracle Java Cloud in October 2011 and received an email as confirmation – exactly nothing happened for the next 12 months. And nothing else has happened to this very day (10th October 2012). I will grant Oracle that the story is very impressive. And kind of logical as well. But I only know of a single person who has actually been on the Oracle Java Cloud – and of over a dozen who are still waiting to get access. So I will start believing the entire story when I get some tangible (as tangible as clouds get anyway) proof.
Let’s focus on the story. What is Oracle’s cloud story? Well, it is everything really – a really big cloud! The mission Oracle has defined around the cloud is ‘to make every part of Enterprise Technology and Business Applications available to any partner and any customer throughout the world – via the internet’ (wherever that makes sense – as for some products this may not be meaningful at all).

On a recent project, I ran into a problem with an XML document, that had to be enclosed within another XML document, generated from a database query. The problem I ran into was the character encoding of the XMLElement function, which eventually was worked around with UPDATEXML.
In this blog post I would like to share with you several attempts to solve this problem, why they failed and the final solution to the problem.
Printing of official documents happened in a separate printing module. Whenever a document needed to be printed, an XML document was generated in a database query and sent to the printing module. Most of the data came from relational database tables, but pieces of standard text were supplied as XML documents by another party… and saved in our database in an XMLType column based on CLOB storage.
Our printing module expected to find these standard text XML documents within a tag in our generated XML document. Also both XML documents, our generated XML and the supplied XML, had different namespaces, this needed to maintained this way. The Oracle database version we were working with was 10.1.0.5.0.
In this post I will use a simplified version of the real XML More >
