Distributed Security, Performance, Whither Programming?, Internals, Discoverer and JRE, Siebel Templates, PeopleSoft

SOA and Security

To some people the concept of distributed security may seem like 'jumbo shrimp' a bit of an oxymoron. This post at the Confessions of a Database Geek blog is about just that, and should give pause to those building SOA systems. Have you considered security, or just business processes?


Time and performance wait for no one. Another cliche is born. But the concept of DB time is interesting, and is discussed in this second posting on the subject over at Doug's Oracle Blog.

Programming the Future

If you're taking one computer language in college, or know someone who is, and it's Java, this article mentioned at the Scott Spendolini Blog may serve as a warning flare. To be really valuable, you need depth. You need to get as close to the hardware as possible without getting your fingers burned by the CPU. Java is a long way from that.

Oracle Internals

Tanel Poder comes up with yet another excellent item on internals, this time rowcache internals.

Discoverer and the JRE

A valuable article on troubleshooting Discoverer Plus not coming up after you download the Java applet over at In Depth Apps - Oracle eBusiness Suite.

Siebel Templates

Grey Sperling has warm words for the Oracle's Virtual Machine Templates for Oracle/Siebel applications over at the Grey Sperling's PeopleSoft Expert's Corner.

PeopleSoft and Calendars

I dont' think he's got a hookup for the Mayan calendar, but Jim Marion over at his PeopleSoft Journal blog has a great posting on connecting PeopleSoft and calendars, such as Outlook Calendar.

Windows Utilities

The Systems Engineering and RDBMS blog hooks us up with a couple of new utilities from the Sysinternals group at Microsoft. If you haven't found Sysinternals, and you're administering a DBA on Windows, you will find many valuable programs there.
