UKOUG 2008 – Boost Your Environment With XMLDB


For those who are interested, here the presentation and the demo scripts.

During the presentation, I made use of an Oracle version database on Windows XP. If using an Windows Vista machine, be aware that you need an extra security update from Microsoft MSDN while using WebDAV. Details are described in the Oracle 11g XMLDB Developers Guide.

The database was created using the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant. The template used in DBCA was the fullblown sample database including all demo schema’s.

Access to internet and/or a local RSS feed from a website was used for the DBUri demonstrations. I wasn’t sure if I had the luck of actually having an internet connection, so I had also created an local wordpress site running on Xampp-lite as a backup.



PS.: Thanks to those who helped me to fill in some blanks and/or pushed me into finding a solution the XMLDB way, like Dimitri, Anton, Kieth, Laurent and also those giants who allowed me to stand on their shoulders, like Mark and Tom.
