Certifications, OOW, EBS Shell Scripting, 11g Parameters, SOA Grid, APEX, Lies, BI Publisher, SYSDBA


Want to find out what the latest production combination certifications are (and lots of other good postings)? Have a look at Steven Chan's outstanding Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog.

Oracle Support at OOW

Come see some of the presentations at Open World next week from Oracle Support people. Here's a writeup at Chris Warticki's blog.

Shell Scripts in EBS

Need to outgeek the competition? There's nothing like shell scripts to demonstrate that you are a geek with major wage earning potential. Take the tutorial on Shell Script Tutorial for Oracle Applications here.

11g Improvement 

Every little bit counts, and as H.Tonguç Yılmaz tells us in this posting, RDBMS 11.1 writesout the  initialization parameters to the alert log at startup in a format that makes it easier to recreate them if you lose your SPFILE or PFILE.

SOA Grid

A good jumping off point to research the Oracle SOA Grid concept is this posting at the AMIS technology blog.


Like APEX? Like meeting others who do? Like eating? Put them all together for the APEX Meetup at Open World, Tuesday at 7:30.


The Fusion ECM blog points us to some free, as-is UCM components here.


There are lies, damned lies and statistics, and then there's the simple fact that when faced with a complex set of tasks day in and day out, well...stuff happens, and afterwards people cover their tracks, or at least try to. Mike Ault has a brief but inciteful article on the inevitability of lies and how often DBAs have to wade through them to get to the real cause of a problem.

BI Publisher

A handy list of 25 sessions for those interested in BI Publisher linked to from this posting at the Oracle BI Publisher blog. 


The Oracle Forensics blog is collecting differences between the DBA and SYSDBA roles. Have some you can't find in this posting? Contribute!
