I just made use of the very cool OTN Virtual Developer Day Database site. In this environment you can follow OTN Developer Day sessions, for example, at home, while making use of all the material available on that site plus the downloadable Virtualbox OTN Developer Day Appliance. Despite you can choose for tracks like Java, .Net, APEX, there is also a database section which handles (as you might expect it from me regarding interest) Oracle XMLDB functionality.
There is a 1 hour webcast available from Mark Drake, Oracle Product Manager, that takes you along all the basics / general overview (basic due too it is too extensive to show it in only an hour) of possibilities of Oracle XMLDB functionality. For convenience there is also a PDF document that has most of the slide info of the webcast. It doesn’t contain the demo’s or extra Virtualbox OTN Developer Day Appliance first steps info, of course, and what to do to reset the training XMLDB environment in this appliance.
This PDF and the webcast starts with the Oracle safeguard (legal disclaimer), with the general product outline slide saying among others that Oracle is not responsible or obliged to actually build-in features More >
The XBRL Extention, a no cost add-on extention on XML-DB targeting the Extensible Business Reporting Language area, is now available for download. This second release ( p12388668_112020_Generic.zip ) of the Oracle XBRL Extension can be downloaded from the Oracle Support site (https://support.oracle.com). Once you have downloaded the file, please follow the instructions in the README.txt file to install the software.
Here are whatâ€™s new in the new in this release:
- New routines createStarSchemaFromFact and createStarSchemaFromHC have been added to PL/SQL package DBMS_ORAXBRLV to retrieve the list of table (view) names of a generated star schema.
- New routine DTS_filelist has been added to PL/SQL package DBMS_ORAXBRL to retrieve a discoverable taxonomy set (DTS).
For more info about the Oracle XBRL Extention see also “Oracle XBRL Extension Ready for Download”.
Roel Hartman and me are currently very busy with our Kaleidoscope 2011 presentation “XFiles, the APEX Version: The Truth is in There…“. During this presentation, we will demonstrate the awesome possibilities you can create when you combine the APEX and XMLDB functionality of the APEX database environment. And as you probably also know, two “no cost options” delivered with your Oracle database. Our first presentation/demo will be on the AMIS Kaleidoscope Preview Sessions on the 14th of June, to test our “setup” and combined presentation for the real thing during Kaleidoscope, in Long Beach, USA, this year.Background
The demo will demonstrate how to setup database build-in versioning capabilities, based on standard XMLDB functionality, that can be used by or for APEX applications, while making use of the file/folder metaphor of the XDB Repository.
The new ready to download Oracle XBRL Extension is a “no cost option” on top of the latest Oracle Database 22.214.171.124.0 release. With this added functionality you will get a database environment that contains
- One or more back-end XBRL repositories based on Oracle Database, which provide XBRL storage and query-ability with a set of XBRL-specific services
- An external XBRL processing engine (XPE)
The XBRL Extension to Oracle XMLÂ DB integrates easily with Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) for analytics and with interactive development environments (IDEs) and design tools for creating and editing XBRL taxonomies.

There is a generic “patch” (patch 10411201), p10411201_112020_generic.zip, which can be downloaded from http://support.oracle.com and installed to be used on top of the Oracle 126.96.36.199.0 XML DB.Â In addition, there are also two platform-specific patches (currently only available for Linux-x86-64 and Solaris-64 platforms):
For the Linux-x86 64 bit platform:

Currently sitting in at Sam Iducula, Consulting member of the tech. staff and Mark Drake, Sr. Product Manager for Oracle XML DB. Before getting into the more in-depth topics Sam explained XML schema usage, for validation via XML schema validators like for example XML Spy or JDeveloper. This is currently really needed because those more used XML Schema like the really big ones out there like H7, etc, are nowadays so very very big that a good XML Schema validator is really needed. XML Schema in binary XML format is stored in a post parsed binary format. This has the advantage that Oracle knows about the format when storing the XML document. Extra information can be shared by the database by registering the XML Schema in the database that validates the Binary XML content.
There can be a lot of recursive dependencies, via the import or include references in a XML Schema, which make it even more difficult to make optimal use of this information. For example in the H7 setup this includes over 100 included XML Schemas. Oracle 11gR2 has been greatly improved performance and handling of those very huge metadata information as stored in such XML Schemas. Via streaming schema validation and More >
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.
