BI on JDE, Oracle Patching, Scripts, Optimizer


The JD Edwards blog has a link to a free seminar on setting up BI on JD Edwards.


The actor David Niven gave an interview once where he said: 'After you reach 50, it's just patch, patch, patch.' Software doesn't even have to wait that long.

Chris Warticki noticed that a very important document on Oracle patching policy has been updated. This is good one to print out and refer to (it also has a good glossary of the sometimes arcane terminology used in the patching process). It's on his Oracle Support blog here.


No matter how 'webby' you get, good old honest command line scripts are still key elements in the DBAs toolbox. Kevin Closson's blog reminds us this week of an excellent source of those scripts, Morgan's Library.

Mysteries of the Optimizer Unveiled

The Inside the Oracle Optimizer blog has a pointer to a new whitepaper on OTN about what to expect from the optimizer when moving from 9i to 10g. I've seen a lot of clients over the years go through this changeover, and I wish I'd had this paper to give them to work with up front. If you're about to move, or you already moved and wonder why some peculiar things are going on with some of your query plans, please give this paper a read.
