BPEL, OBI EE Plus, JD Edwards, SQL, Raw RAC, Support, Identity Management, SOA Survey, EBS 32 bit to 64, PeopleSoft

BPEL Dry Goods

I was researching something for a customer and ran across the term 'dehydration store'. That sent me to Google. Here's a link I found. at the often excellent Amis Technology Blog.


Some good postings over at the OBI EE Plus blog, an announcement that is available, and something new to do with it, connect it with Essbase.

Tim Dexter at the Oracle BI Publisher blog also has a good posting on the new release.

JD Edwards

The JD Edwards blog lets us know that the Web Services Gateway and XPI are going away, and now there is a date set for the event.

SQL from Jonathan Lewis

A simple question with a variety of answers: I want to update most of a table, what's the best way to go about it. Here are a variety of answers and discussions.


Remember the old parallel server days when the only way to go was use raw devices? Well, they're officially over. According to a Metalink note that the StartOracle blog found, raw devices will be desupported on 12G. Only "ASM, OCFS, NFS, or other cluster file systems" will be usable.

Support News

Two good articles at Chris Warticki's blog today: the release of RDA 4.10 and an awesome list of support tools, diagnostics and scripts.

New Blog: Identity Think

There's a new blog on the block from a very experienced expert in the realm of identify management, Identity Think, by Oracle VP Jeff Shukis.

SOA Survey

Anthony Reynolds' blog has links to a student in Ireland conducting a survey on SOA about "
how SOA can influence the IT capability of a firm and to what extend this strategy can become a major initiative for changing the underlined business approach of an organization" Sounds pretty interesting. If you are using SOA your input would be very valuable.

Moving EBS to 64 Bits on Linux

Need to move from 32 bit to 64 bit? On Linux? The Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog has the note for you.

R12 Certification

R12 is the cat's meow of EBS, so here's a page on R12 certification over at the Oracle Certification Blog.

PeopleSoft Performance Monitor

The The PeopleSoft DBA Blog has a posting on problems with the PeopleSoft Performance Monitor and news on the fix here.

Production, and Why It So Often Goes Astray

A good 10,000 foot view of why things often 'worked great on test and went nuts when in production' at CIO magazine, here.
