Integration at the Speed of Business

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 23:15:42 +0000

Being recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Enterprise iPaaS in just two years of inception has been the most welcome news yet for our team in 2017.  With the explosive growth in the number of SaaS and PaaS solutions in the past few years, Cloud has transformed into a “best-of-breed playground” where organizations mix and match “specialized” applications that have a specific business function/pillar (for e.g. Sales, Service, Marketing, Talent Management, Payroll etc) and then integrate them to build end to end business solutions.  Enterprise iPaaS platforms have been the new favorite with the Cloud-boomers, with their modern user experience and ease of use, helping bring down costs, accelerate time to market. They also help enterprises find budget and resources for growth-focused innovative projects that can help them differentiate against their competition. In fact, according to Gartner, this fervent demand for and growth of iPaaS is reflected in the growing market segment estimated at around $11 billion today with over 120+ iPaaS vendors in the market today, and projected to hit nearly $15 billion by 2020. However, there are dangers lurking for organizations who perform the move without having a well-thought-out organization-wide cloud strategy.  The truth is that most organizations move to the cloud “incrementally” from within various business units where each team drives their own functional requirements, as well as their own vision of cost savings, simplicity and efficiency. Without an organization-wide cloud strategy, each team drives their own choice of cloud solutions without understanding the organization-wide impact. In the absence of cloud strategy, enterprises continue to spend more time integrating and managing a “Frankenstein" solution rather than spending time in revenue-generating, innovation-focused projects that can help drive growth.   “Cloud helps you to simplify, but it does not change the laws of physics. The more unrelated elements you have in a system, the more issues and problems you’ll have in the implementation and operation—and the more headaches you’ll face every time you do an update.” - Jon Chorley, GVP, Oracle SCM Cloud Within organizations who have been successful cloud adopters, Business, IT and LOB/Apps IT Business Units work closely with each other, yet autonomously, knowing very well that modern iPaaS platforms are no magic pill to avoid spaghetti architectural nightmares in the cloud. It takes "Practical Governance,” strategy and processes in the organization to effectively embrace the cloud. Integration is far less a “technical” exercise and far more a “strategy exercise” when it comes to measuring its long term effectiveness within any enterprise. When Oracle started its journey of Integration in the Cloud a few years ago, we had three key objectives in mind. 1. Simplify SaaS integration as much as possible. This made a lot of sense for us to focus on to start with. Oracle itself has a large SaaS footprint, so this was critical for us as well. SaaS applications from Oracle such as Sales Cloud, ERP and CPQ Cloud, as well as those from third parties such as Salesforce, ServiceNow or SuccessFactors, are diverse in form-factors - underlying data models, security policies, APIs, integration patterns (real-time, bulk/batch, file-based), etc.  The magnitude of the challenge multiplies with the number of apps being on-boarded within organizations. This rate of adoption and uptake has been on a phenomenal rise as well. Mid-to-large organizations own, on an average, more than 23 SaaS Applications across their enterprise. Plus, you are talking about more than 2300+ SaaS applications in the marketplace today. Talk about scale! 2. Enable ad-hoc and citizen integrators to be able to b[...]



Custom UI Components in Oracle ABCS for Dynamic Image Display

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 22:29:54 +0000

This quick one is based on a customer question about Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service. The scenario is that we have a business object that has a field that contains the URL to an image. We want to be able to show that image on a page in Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.

(image)

To do that I add a custom UI component object to the details (or edit) page of a record - then I switched the HTML of that object to be: (image)

(image)

I then added a button to the page and added a bit of custom JavaScript code in its action as follow:

var img = document.getElementById('logoimg');

img.src=$Company.getValue('Logo');

resolve();

This code simply locates the custom object on the page using the object id and then sets the src property of the img html tag to match the value of the field in the business object.

libCrun.so.1: version 'SUNW_1.6' not found

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 20:47:10 +0000

We were getting the errors below issue when trying to launch a program on Solaris 11.2: ld.so.1: am: fatal: libCrun.so.1: version 'SUNW_1.6' not found (required by file prog) ld.so.1: am: fatal: /usr/lib/libCrun.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32 I quickly recognized the ELFCLASS32, but needed to do a little research to get to the bottom of the "libCrun.so.1: version 'SUNW_1.6' not found" 1) fatal: /usr/lib/libCrun.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32The application was picking up the 32-bit version of the library. It turned out that the 64-bit libraries were already loaded on the system and it was only necessary to modify the environment to ensure that the 64-bit libraries would be picked up at runtime. One solution is to set one of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variants, however it is generally a bad idea to set any of those environment variables, except for short-term testing of an application or library. If an application routinely needs one or more of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables, the app was probably not built correctly.  I would first check whether it was built with a correct runpath (linker -R option).  For a full discussion of what's wrong with LD_LIBRARY_PATH and how to avoid using it, see these classic blog entries: https://blogs.oracle.com/rie/ldlibrarypath-just-say-nohttps://blogs.oracle.com/ali/avoiding-ldlibrarypath:-the-options It turned out that our problem was that LD_LIBRARY_PATH was set and /usr/lib was BEFORE /usr/lib/sparcv9. If you choose to use one of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables for testing, using LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64 is the better choice. "The 64-bit dynamic linker's search path can be completely overridden using the LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64 environment variable." (see https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19455-01/806-0477/dev-env-7/index.html). The advantage of using LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64 is that it only applies to 64-bit programs. If you modify LD_LIBRARY_PATH to solve the 64-bit problem, a side effect can be that some 32-bit programs may fail due to picking up the 64-bit libraries. FYI, here are some commands that were useful during the investigation. a) Find out which package supplies libCrun.so.1: # pkg search -l -H -o pkg.name libCrun.so.1 system/library/c++-runtime b) If necessary, install the the package: # pkg install system/library/c++-runtime Linked image publisher check No updates necessary for this image. ... c) What is path to the various versions of the library? # pkg search libCrun.so.1 INDEX      ACTION VALUE                        PACKAGE basename   file   usr/lib/amd64/libCrun.so.1   pkg:/system/library/c++-runtime@0                           .5.11-0.175.2.0.0.37.0 basename   file   usr/lib/sparcv9/libCrun.so.1 pkg:/system/library/c++-runtime@0                           .5.11-0.175.2.0.0.37.0 basename   file   usr/lib/libCrun.so.1         pkg:/system/library/c++-runtime@0                           .5.11-0.175.2.0.0.37.0 d) Which library is which? # file /usr/lib/libCrun.so.1 /usr/lib/libCrun.so.1:  ELF 32-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, not stripped, no debugging information available # file /usr/lib/sparcv9/libCrun.so.1 /usr/lib/s[...]

For a tech professional, second time’s the charm at Oracle

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 17:56:25 +0000

(image)

For Maria, there’s a history behind her current role as a Practice Manager for Oracle’s National Security Group (NSG). Before belonging to the NSG, and offering applications consulting and delivery to its clients as part of the NSG’s Applications group, as well as being involved in the business development side of things, she had a 14-year absence from Oracle.

“This is my second time. I started at Oracle in October 1996 and then left in May of 2001, and then I came back in January 2016,” Maria recounts. “But when I started back in ’96, I belonged to Applications Contracts and Sales Consulting,” she adds. So what made her come back to Oracle? Surely for someone with more than 20 years’ experience in the consulting field—mostly for government and healthcare—, finding a job almost anywhere else would’ve been easy for her. Despite this, she decided to return.

“I love that I can apply my many years of experience with the latest Oracle technology,” Maria says. “Our organization is not rigid, which makes it easier to reach out to other teams to collaborate on specific areas where we need more support,” she continues. “Access to internal training online is seriously unlimited—I am not a very technical person, but I got my Big Data Analytics certification by taking my specific learning path,” she also mentions.

But technology isn’t the only thing that brought Maria back to Oracle. She also has praise for the company’s culture: “The environment is very different. Oracle has many, many more opportunities for career development. Management is very interested in making sure that your ideas are taken into consideration.”

For these reasons, Maria decided to return to Oracle. And though she’s not the first Oracle employee to leave for other ventures, she also isn’t the first to return upon remembering why Oracle is such a great place to work. “Oracle is the whole package. Even though I was at other companies, I was always talking about Oracle being so good. The environment is great and the camaraderie is fantastic. It has been a great experience, and that is why I came back,” Maria concludes.

Working With Reference Data In A Custom Extension

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 09:22:49 +0000

Introduction and Use-Case This article provides a fictitious example of one possible option for integrating data from an external system with Oracle Sales Cloud. It's intended to highlight particular considerations involved and provide an illustration. Let's setup a simple use-case. Our business users would like to see some financial performance data when dealing with their customers. This will help them make more informed decisions when managing customer account records. The financial data is held in a secondary proprietary accounting system.  The information required is summary-like data, and as such aggregation and calculation will be required on the source data. The source accounting data is quite complex and the number of records will most likely be high. Users want this extra information available in-context, ideally inside the Account details page in Sales Cloud, and have asked for fast performance and no additional navigation. This extra financial data is for reference-use only, and no creation or update will ever be made to this data from Sales Cloud. Examples of what users would like to see include: Largest Ever Spend Average Spend Average Spend Last Year Number of Orders Last Year Implementation Choices One option might be to setup a live web service call to the secondary financial system to get the accounting data for display. As mentioned the existing system is proprietary and it's unlikely the exact set of services needed is already available, meaning more development as well as some security concerns in adding API's to this system. In addition, with a need for multiple calculated values on the page, each web service call and subsequent processing will have a performance overhead. As such this option may not be the best choice here.A second option to get live data is to create a UI mash-up where a sub-tab is added to the Account object page layout. This has an iFrame region that embeds the user interface of the secondary financial system. This solution is also unsuitable because the need is just for a few data points and not actually financial system access for the sales users. A final option is to get the results of specific queries on the financial system into Sales Cloud. In this use-case the users do not actually require live data, as such a query can be executed on a regular interval to refresh the data shown (e.g. daily). The query can simplify and denormalize the complex data structures in the financial system (e,g, headers-lines) into a single business object records. It can ensure only the appropriate data is included and that is it executed only by an authorized user. As such this implementation was chosen for use. Let's look at how this was actually done. Data Adding and Importing Firstly a custom object - Invoice_c - is created in Sales Cloud to hold the imported data. In this example we have just a few fields for use in the calculations needed. Note that the Customer field is a Dynamic Choice List on the Account object. This is because it will ensure the existing customer names are used, and it allows access to both the customer name String and the PartyId stored as the foreign key in the auto-generated Customer_Id_c field.  The implementation does NOT include generating any 'Pages' for this custom object, as it's just for reference data storage. We do not want anyone creating or updating this reference data through any methods outside our integration solution - like through a UI page. In the initial population of a high volume of records into this object we use the File-based Loader process. This is described in detail in these articles. Incremental loads can be done using the SOAP or REST custom object web services. First a process queri[...]



Oracle Datenbank 12.2: Oracle Multitenant und lokales AWR

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 08:08:05 +0000

Das Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) kann ab 12.2 auch lokal in den PDBs gespeichert werden.

Das AWR der Oracle Datenbank bietet umfangreiche Daten für eine Analyse von Performance-Engpässen und sonstigen Problemen, die von den Anwendungen verursacht werden können und ist mittlerweile für viele eine unverzichtbare Basis für die Verwaltung von Oracle Datenbanken geworden.

Oracle Multitenant wurde mit der Version 12c Release 1 der Oracle Datenbank eingeführt und bei dieser Version wird das AWR ausschließlich auf der Ebene der CDB gespeichert. Auch die Erfassungsintervalle werden dabei ausschließlich in der CDB festgelegt. Da diese Daten nur in der CDB gespeichert sind, werden diese bei einem Transport von einer CDB zur anderen CDB (Unplug und Plug) nicht mitgenommen.

Um Oracle Multitenant als Konsolisierungsplattform noch weiter zu verbessern wurde mit der Version 12c Release 2 der Oracle Datenbank eine wichtige Veränderung beim AWR durchgeführt: die für eine PDB relevanten Daten des AWR können sowohl in der CDB, als auch lokal in der PDB gespeichert werden. Dieses ist wichtig, zum Beispiel dann, wenn eine PDB von einer CDB zu einer anderen CDB verschoben werden soll und die AWR Daten dabei in der PDB erhalten bleiben sollen.

Alles Weitere dazu in diesem Tipp.




教师视角:如何使用PaaS Service Manager命令行创建Oracle Cloud数据库

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 04:01:05 +0000

Creating and managing databases instances in the Oracle Cloud without the knowledge of the WebService API is possible through the installation of the PaaS Service Manager Command Line. The installation can be carried out to any Linux compliant with prerequisites for CLI installation and configuration, which are:       'psm setup' was successful. Available services are: o ANALYTICS : Oracle Analytics Cloud o BDCSCE : Oracle Big Data Cloud Service - Compute Edition o CONTAINER : Oracle Container Cloud Service o IDCS : Oracle Identity Cloud Service o IDCSControlPlane : Oracle Identity Cloud Service o IOTAssetMon : Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud Service o IOTEnterpriseApps : Oracle Internet of Things Cloud - Enterprise o IOTFleetMon : Oracle IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud Service o IOTProdMonitoring : Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service o MySQLCS : Oracle MySQL Cloud Service o OEHCS : Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service o OEHPCS : Oracle Event Hub Cloud Service - Platform o accs : Oracle Application Container Cloud Service o caching : Oracle Application Cache o dbcs : Oracle Database Cloud Service o ggcs : Oracle GoldenGate Cloud Service o jcs : Oracle Java Cloud Service   o stack : Oracle Cloud Stack Manager The execution of this command is giving the associated services for which configurations can be issued. This list might be different depending on the tool version and your cloud account settings. The next step then is to prepare a json file, which will be used to create and start your dbaas services. The configuration of this json file is reflecting the Web Api of the dbaas. A simple container db => ESORCL, with one PDB=> ESPDB1, demos and Goldengate capabilities , with the "shape": "oc4" will be created. The execution then of the following command will create the service: [oracle@bigdatalite dbaas]$ psm dbcs create-service -c create-ESdb.json "Accepted" Job ID : 4560513 The following command will help you to monitor the creation of this service: [oracle@bigdatalite dbaas]$ psm dbcs service -s ESdb12c-ee-v3 {     "service_name":"ESdb12c-ee-v3","version":"12.1.0.2","status":"In Progress","description":"ESdb12c-ee-v3","identity_domain":"XXXXXX","creation_time":"2017-03-15T10:20:27.977+0000","last_modified_time":"2017-03-15T10:20:27.956+0000","created_by":"XXXX","sm_plugin_version":"17.1.5-542","backup_supported_version":"16.2.3", "service_uri":"https://psm.europe.oraclecloud.com:443/paas/service/dbcs/api/v1.1/instances/XXXXX/ESdb12c-ee-v3","num_nodes":1,"level":"PAAS","edition":"EE_HP","shape":"oc4","subscriptionType":"HOURLY","creation_job_id":"4560513","num_ip_reservations":1,"backup_destination":"BOTH","cloud_storage_container":"https://XXXX.storage.oraclecloud.com/v1/Storage-XXX/XXx","cloud_storage_pass":"*****","cloud_storage_user":"****","failover_database":false,"rac_database":false,"sid":"ESORCL","pdbName":"ESPDB1","demoPdb":"yes","listenerPort":1521,"timezone":"UTC","charset":"AL32UTF8","ncharset":&qu[...]

Just how fast is TimesTen In-Memory Database?

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 23:18:12 +0000

The TimesTen In-Memory Database can have excellent performance on even commodity hardware. RDBMS performance has two important factors, latency and throughput. Latency is about how fast SQL Select, Insert, Update, Delete or Merge operations can be completed. TimesTen is known for enabling really low latency SQL transactions. We measure TimesTen latency in microseconds rather than milliseconds:

(image)

This latency benchmark was run on commodity Linux / Intel hardware:

  • 2 CPU sockets, 22 cores/socket, Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4 @ 2.20GHz
  • The benchmark is TPTBM for Reads and Updates
  • TimesTen 11.2.2.8.0 (100M rows of data, DB is 17 GB)

Having really low latency also helps with throughput. RDBMS throughput is defined in terms of (ACID) transactions per second.

(image)

This throughput benchmark was run on the same commodity hardware:

  • 2 CPU sockets, 22 cores/socket, Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4 @ 2.20GHz
  • The benchmark is TPTBM for mixed workload (80% reads, 10% updates, 5% inserts and 5% deletes)
  • TimesTen 11.2.2.8.0 (100M rows of data, DB is 17 GB)

The performance of TimesTen is dependent on the workload, hardware and tuned SQL statements.  These TPTBM benchmarks used primary key lookups and the SQL statements in each transaction only affected a few rows.  If your SQL workload has complex joins involving many tables or returns a huge number of rows then these operations will take longer.  The hardware that the workload runs on also affects the performance.  Faster CPUs in terms of GHz, size of the L3 cache and number of cores tend to give better TimesTen In-Memory Database performance.

Download and try TimesTen In-Memory Database with your workload.  The TimesTen Quickstart Guide will lower the learning curve.

专为云学习而设计的全新直观学习平台

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 17:12:47 +0000

SUDHIR MENON – Oracle云技术传播者和PAAS专家,2017年4月4日 随着ORACLE软件即服务(SaaS)、平台即服务(PAAS)和基础设施即服务(IAAS) 的云实施数量的不断增多,重新设计具有新功能的云学习平台对于用户采用来说就可谓至关重要。 这些新的云学习平台具有以下主要特点: · 面向不同云实施方案的自适应学习 · 针对不同水平用户的渐进式学习 · 可从平��进行知识管理并利于协作的直观平台 · 可衡量的、重视成果的学习 · 提供报告和认证的方法 · 视频学习兼网络学习 面对不断变化的云产品线,客户和企业正在寻找能够为员工提供无缝学习的综合型学习平台,以实现持续学习。 下面,让我们深入了解云平台的十大卓越功能,对甲骨文大学云培训在 满足现代云学习者的需求方面有更进一步的认识。 云平台的十大卓越功能: 1. 建立跨多个产品版本的统一学习平台:大多数云部署需要学习多个版本的云产品,例如Fusion版本10、11和12。根据项目的不同,平台应具备让学习者切换产品版本并培养相应能力的功能。 2. 提供基于特定主题和技能的学习指导:学习内容需要根据应用、技能和主题进行重新设计和架构,以确保学习能够符合客观情况。学习平台应帮助学生掌握特定项目所需的某些技能和主题。学习成果是可衡量的,以确保团队所有成员均能获得高水平的能力。 3. 使学习游戏化,以对现代化学习进行衡量并推动采用:学习平台应为学习者提供基本的激励措施以衡量其技能水平,例如分数机制就可以增强学习体验。学习平台可以进行改进,但基本的以分数和技能为基础的学习系统对量化的学习成果很有帮助。 4. 提供以产品实施为基础的角色学习分类:学习平台应根据典型实施项目中的实际分类方式提供基于角色的学习。在云实施项目中,存在着职能实施人员、技术实施人员、服务管理员和终端用户等角色。平台应根据人员的角色和工作描述组织规划学习内容,提供量身定制的、突出重点的学习体验。如果职能团队需要对技术信息进行基本的了解,则平台不应限制学习内容,而应使其能够访问所有信息。 5. 进行评估和认证:学习平台应根据特定主题提供连续的周期评估,这有助于学习者评估其学习进展。评估可以测试现有的知识,然后根据结果制定学习计划。学习平台还应提供嵌入平台内的认证服务。与学习内容有关的点击可以直接链接到考试平台。评估和认证是非常有意义的综合型工具,能够为员工、培训部门和实践经理提供一种“量化平台”,不仅可以进行学习,还能衡量学习进展。 6. 提供实践操作和交互式实验室课程以学以致用:通过交互式视频内容练习所学到的新知识至关重要。学习平台应通过在线实验室或软件提供按计划使用的实验室和随到随用的实验室。学习者可以在一周内练习相同的技能,然后根据需要重新安排时间。重要的是,学习平台可以实现实验室的自我管理,并且可以灵活地重复相同的实验室操作来进一步强化所学习的新内容。 [...]



数字徽章现已成为雇主和求职者的必要工具

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 17:07:42 +0000

Brandye Barrington,Oracle,2017年3月7日 在竞争日益激烈的就业市场中,求职者的虚假信息极为常见。而数字徽章是横空出世的一大突破,它能够帮助企业即时验证求职者 的资历,避免了聘用不合格雇员造成的成本损失、不便与业务风险。面对欺诈者数量的不断增多,数字徽章也使真正有资格的求 职者能够从立等可见的信誉中受益,帮助他们避免将就业机会拱手让与无资格的欺诈者。 在竞争日益激烈的就业市场中求职 随着技术技能缺口的不断扩大,企业都在努力寻找所需的合格人才,IT领域的薪资也随之不断上涨,这也使得IT就业市场的竞争愈发激烈。与此同时,受到经济危机冲击的求职者也转而申请IT工作职位,寄希望于IT领域能够提供有趣且热门的工作岗位、有竞争力的薪酬以及更多的工作保障。 这些极具吸引力的职位使许多求职者在其简历上弄虚作假。研究表明,许多求职者的资历完全不真实。同时,急于聘请看似合格的IT人员的企业往往会在对求职者的快速选拔过程中犯下错误。由于疏于验证求职者的资格,而最终导致可能存在的错误雇用。 资历合格的重要意义:不合格雇员的成本计算 错误雇用的影响很难量化,但并非不可能。根据英国一家全球最佳实践解决方案供应商AXELOS的一项调查,在过去三年中,近40%的英国公司在雇用了不合格的员工后花费了超过1万英镑重新招聘人员,而近10%的公司甚至花费了4万多英镑。 但错误雇用的财务影响远远超过了可计算的招聘费用。有很多隐藏成本,例如管理成本的增加和指导入职人员的人工成本,以及在职期 间所犯错误而产生的成本。此外,因为缺乏技术创新而使企业停止不前,从而造成了错过机会的成本,以及对企业声誉造成的无法估量的负面影响,这一点也被26%的受访人力资源经理认为是雇用不合格员工的最大风险。 不合格雇用人员的预计总负担成本可能会达到惊人的数额。 资格检查列为招聘优先事项 求职者欺诈现象在不断增加,错误雇用的成本也如此之高,因此对潜在雇员进行审查理应成为征聘过程中的强制性步骤。但是AXELOS的研究表明,在聘用新人之前,近一半(48%)的英国人力资源专业人员并不总是检查申请人的资格是否真实。这种做法就是将资源浪费在错误雇用上。求职者资格审查势在必行。 资格验证的常见问题 即使资格验证过程得以实施,还有很多原因会造成无法正确检验求职者的资格。 首先,如何审查资格?许多公司会要求求职者扫描并以电邮形式发送证件,但即使没有IT技能,这些证件也可能被轻易地伪造。让求职者亲自递交他们的证书是更好的方法,但仍然不能保证证书的真实性。传统做法上正确的验证都需要时间和资源。 第二,谁来负责审查资格?招聘经理?招聘人员?人力资源部主管?上岗培训团队?外部招聘机构?虽然资格审查与以上各方都有利害关系,但往往皮球踢了一圈却没人真正担起责任。 第三,资格审查通常是招聘过程的最后一步,[...]

Getting Started with Chatbots by Tamer Qumhieh Introduction

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 08:33:38 +0000

At Oracle Open World 2016, Larry Ellison demoed the upcoming Oracle Intelligent Bots Cloud Service (IBCS), if you haven’t seen the demo, you can watch the recording on youtube. Chatbots employ a conversational interface that is both lean and smart, and if designed properly is even charming. Chat helps people find the things they want and need, as well as delivering great services and information directly into an interface they already know and love.Think about how much work it takes to compare and decide on which app to download. Then actually downloading it is never as easy as it sounds, and then the anxiety of where on your home screen to put it on, and then learning yet another new interface. Chatbots are the singularity that smart devices have been waiting for, the streamlined experience that will finally unshackle us from the burden that our apps put on our devices. For most of what we do on our mobile devices, the chatbot and chat interface are ideal. Main Article In this article, I’l go through a step-by-step guide on how to get started with chatbots and build your first Facebook chatbot. We will implement the bot using NodeJS and will deploy to Oracle Application Cloud Service ‘ACCS’, for more information on Oracle ACCS please click here. In a nutshell, below are the discussed topics: · Create Facebook Page. · Create Facebook App. · Create Webhook and register with Facebook. · Receive Facebook Messages · Test using Facebook Messenger · Deploy to ACCS In order to proceed with this tutorial, you need to have a Facebook account and you should install Facebook Messenger on your mobile device.

Software Adoption Surveys: From Quantity To Quality!

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 18:20:38 +0000

In a democracy, everyone is equal. One person, one vote, and all votes are equal since all people are equal. Erroneously, that approach is applied to software adoption surveys too. Anyone at all can respond to a survey and can indicate that they use software product X, Y, or Z. However, what if I am a student paddling in the shallow waters of software development, with the likelihood that I'll abandon it before I graduate, while you are a senior Java architect creating mission critical software for NASA? Should my vote for product X, Y, or Z be equal to yours? Surely not? According to "Baeldung", NetBeans usage has MORE THAN DOUBLED between 2016 and 2017, from 5.9% to 12.4%: And look here! NetBeans IDE is 2nd, beating IntelliJ IDEA and Eclipse: And... wow... look at this one, NetBeans is 2nd, after Eclipse, leaving IntelliJ IDEA far away in the dust: Hurray, NetBeans is waaaaay more popular than X, Y, and Z!  Sorry, the above results are meaningless, just like the results by RedMonk and the results by RebelLabs. Yes, even though the above results favor NetBeans, the tool that I like and have been promoting, and will continue to promote, for many years, the above results are bullshit. When you look at the results of a software adoption survey, you have no idea at all whether the 70% using product A are creating financial software while the 2% using product B are brain surgeons or rocket scientists. And surely that makes a difference, i.e., knowing that information makes a difference in how you would evaluate software adoption surveys. Your software may be aimed at brain surgeons or rocket scientists and so the 70% doing financial software with a competing product are irrelevant to you. So, let's stop the meaninglessness of software adoption surveys. Let's instead turn things around and do surveys of projects instead of people. One project, one vote—instead of one person one vote. And there'd also need to be distinctions between types of projects. Plus, there'd need to be agreement on which specific projects to survey, with the same survey being done with exactly the same projects over a specific number of years, e.g., 5, to show trends. We'd get richly textured results like this: In the 1000 commercial projects surveyed over the past 5 years, 40% use Java-based product X, 30% use competing Java-based product Y, while the remainder don't use Java-based products at all. Over the past 3 years, adoption has shifted significantly amongst the 1000 commercial projects surveyed, from product B to product A in the financial sector, while in the logistics sector adoption has remained constant. Meanwhile, Java-based product Z has declined, though not significantly, and remains popular in large enterprises with over 500 fulltime software developers who combine product A with product B. 90% of the 700 financial projects that have been surveyed use product X, while 75% of the 500 scientific projects that have been surveyed use product X together with competing product Y because product Y provides benefit A in the context of process B which is important specifically to scientific projects because of reason C. In 20% of the organizations surveyed, strict rules are defined about software usage, while 70% leave it up to the developer, and 10% did not respond to this question.  In all of the 2500 o[...]

Oracle Certification is "Well Worth The Effort" According to Don Coppock

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 19:26:27 +0000

In this week's customer success story highlight, we hear from Don Coppock who wears many hats in his current position after 35 years in the IT industry. Don's current responsibilities include Oracle Forms & Reports developer, Web Developer using Adobe ColdFusion and Oracle databases, SharePoint Administrator for a SharePoint 2007 installation, Backup Oracle DBA, and Backup ColdFusion Administrator. But this is not where he started. He made some smart moves along the way to keep his skills relevant. The company I was working for at the time was in the process of moving from the legacy systems on a main frame to Oracle Applications. Me being the system manager on the main frame system could see the handwriting on the wall. So, I took the Oracle Introduction to SQL class followed by Oracle Forms & Reports 10g. I wanted to be one of the legacy developers that was able to make the jump to the Oracle environment. I took the first two Oracle tests and gained my OCA March of 2004. At that point, I was the only individual in the company that had any Oracle certification. That won me the opportunity to work on the internal company's help desk for Oracle Apps where I went on to close more tickets than the other 5 people in the group combined. Since that time, I have become a strong developer in Oracle Forms and Reports, although we still use 10g. I was not able to practice or gain work experience as I was not moved to the Oracle team until after I gained my OCA. Taking those two tests with no where to practice to gain experience made them two of the most difficult tests I have ever taken. But that fact made gaining my OCA that much more rewarding. I have been promising myself that I would take the next test and get my OCP and one day I will. But for now, I have to say that having my OCA has been of great benefit to me in seeking employment. To those that have it, congrats. To those looking to get it, study on. It is well worth the effort. Oracle Certification helped Don position himself for success in a changing IT landscape. That same environment exists today as technology from Applications to Database and everything in between moves to the cloud.  Keep your knowledge and skills relevant with Oracle Certifications.

Oracle Certification is "Well Worth The Effort" According to Don Coppock

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 19:26:27 +0000

In this week's customer success story highlight, we hear from Don Coppock who wears many hats in his current position after 35 years in the IT industry. Don's current responsibilities include Oracle Forms & Reports developer, Web Developer using Adobe ColdFusion and Oracle databases, SharePoint Administrator for a SharePoint 2007 installation, Backup Oracle DBA, and Backup ColdFusion Administrator. But this is not where he started. He made some smart moves along the way to keep his skills relevant. The company I was working for at the time was in the process of moving from the legacy systems on a main frame to Oracle Applications. Me being the system manager on the main frame system could see the handwriting on the wall. So, I took the Oracle Introduction to SQL class followed by Oracle Forms & Reports 10g. I wanted to be one of the legacy developers that was able to make the jump to the Oracle environment. I took the first two Oracle tests and gained my OCA March of 2004. At that point, I was the only individual in the company that had any Oracle certification. That won me the opportunity to work on the internal company's help desk for Oracle Apps where I went on to close more tickets than the other 5 people in the group combined. Since that time, I have become a strong developer in Oracle Forms and Reports, although we still use 10g. I was not able to practice or gain work experience as I was not moved to the Oracle team until after I gained my OCA. Taking those two tests with no where to practice to gain experience made them two of the most difficult tests I have ever taken. But that fact made gaining my OCA that much more rewarding. I have been promising myself that I would take the next test and get my OCP and one day I will. But for now, I have to say that having my OCA has been of great benefit to me in seeking employment.

Advanced Compression Proof-of-Concept (PoC) Insights and Best Practices

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 18:12:37 +0000

I was going to discuss rolling compression using partitioning but I think we’ll save that for a future blog. Instead, I thought we’d discuss what I believe is useful information for anyone currently running an Advanced Compression PoC , or anyone who is planning an Advanced Compression PoC in the future. During my Advanced Compression session, at last year’s Open World, someone mentioned that an Advanced Compression focused document that discussed best practices, and provided some insights regarding performing an Advanced Compression PoC, would be very helpful. That was a great idea, so I’m pleased to provide just such a document, please see this brand new document here: Please note that this document isn’t meant to be a step-by-step guide to performing a compression PoC. Instead, this document is intended to provide best practices learned from customer PoC’s and to provide insights to help plan your compression PoC, as well as help you understand the results of your PoC. Some of the topics covered include: - What is Useful to Know for Your Compression PoC- Enabling Advanced Row Compression- When Advanced Row Compression Occurs - Direct-Path versus Conventional-Path Inserts - Index Key Compression/Advanced Index Compression - What to Consider for Before PoC Testing Begins - Direct-Path and Conventional-Path Loads and AWR- RMAN Compression - More about Compression, Performance and Compression Ratios - What does the Typical Compression PoC Look Like? - Example of Compression PoC as a Multi-Step Process Even if you’re already a user of Advanced Compression, you’ll want to review the Advanced Compression PoC document, it has a number of insights regarding Oracle compression that you will find useful. Please leave comments regarding anything else, that should be included in this document, which you believe would be useful during an Advanced Compression PoC. Also, next month (May), I will be presenting at the Great Lakes Oracle Conference (GLOC) in Cleveland Ohio. If you’re planning on going to GLOC, please stop by for my session titled Insiders Guide to Getting the Most Out of Database Compression and ILM which is schedule for Thursday, May 18, 2017, at 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm. This is a great opportunity to get all your questions about Oracle Compression and ILM answered by Product Management. [...]

Twitter Chat Reveals – Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 15:22:31 +0000

On April 20, @oraclewebcenter hosted a live Twitter Chat at #contentdgtl. The topic – Is headless CMS signaling the end of WCM?

Decoupled CMS architecture (aka “headless”) is rising in popularity in the development world. This model allows breakthrough user experiences, gives developers great flexibility to innovate, and helps site owners future-proof their builds by allowing them to refresh the design without re-implementing the whole CMS. With all this upside, it’s no wonder this type of build has gained serious traction.

With that in mind, the live Twitter discussion focused on the topic of headless CMS and whether companies need to be thinking about it. The Twitter Chat(image) explored headless CMS vs. WCM and use cases of when it makes sense to use one or the other. Industry thought leaders including Melissa Webster from IDC, Dave Gray from Xplaner.com, numerous partners and more participated in this very engaging discussion. The interaction ranged from the benefits of headless CMS to both the developer and business, to things to watch for with headless CMS and ended with best practice recommendations for content production, management & delivery in a cloud world.

From serious musings to light hearted commentary (including this pic that Tanu Sood shared), the Twitter Chat proved to be a great meeting of minds.

Even if you participated, you may have missed portions of the live discussion so we have curated the chat here; it might be worth going back and following the discussion.

One of my personal favorites was a tweet from Carlos Picazo (@carlines) that said "in a few years, we will have even more connected than today and content is key, Internet of People!"

Catch the recap of the Twitter Chat and while you still can, feel free to search for the complete thread by searching on “#contentdgtl” on Twitter.

JShell Integration in NetBeans IDE

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 13:56:35 +0000

I've blogged about the integration of the Java 9 JShell in NetBeans IDE before, here and here.

In the latest daily builds, assuming you're running the daily build on top of Java 9, you'll see the top part of the JShell looks the way you'd like it, i.e., there's a nice code fold and the first statement is numbered 1, rather than 9 as it was initially, as can can be seen in the previous blog entries.

Click to enlarge the below.  

(image)

The JShell can be opened from Tools | Open Java Platform Shell. 

Now the JShell integration looks really nice and polished and is ready for your REPL experiments.

Save Time and Headache – Automate Your WebLogic Data Source Configurations by Chandresh Patel

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 09:22:15 +0000

FlexDeploy’s WebLogic plugin provides various operations to automate the management of domain configurations. Similar to build and deploy of J2EE applications, you can utilize SCM repositories like Subversion, Git, TFS, CVS etc. to maintain configuration files and setup Build and Deploy workflows in FlexDeploy. Let me show you show it works:  See a very simple Data Source configuration file below, which defines two Data Sources. Notice the use of variables like ${{FLX_DB_PASSWORD_FDADMIN}}, which will be automatically replaced when the Deploy workflow executes for a specific environment. You can also override specific values for each environment by providing override files, see the below variation of the file for DEV and PROD environments. You can just provide values that you would like to be different from the main configuration file. See more details on property file details at Read the complete article here.

Demangling Java symbols on Solaris 11.3
