JSR170 vs. CMIS, Control, APEX Tip, PM Taxonomy, Forms Conversion, and NUMA, Index Impact, Chrome Tips, Hyperion at OW

JSR170 vs. CMIS

If the acronyms JSR170 and CMIS arouse your're a techie. Okay, that said, you will be interested in the view in this posting over at the Bex Huff blog on the subject.

Total Control vs. Free Interaction

In another one vs the other controversy, there is an ongoing tendency for the upper tiers of IT management to lock down systems and the working masses to open up backdoors to get things done. It's the ancient human conflict of control and safety vs. free networking and the risks that involves. Good post with pointer to another here at the Fusion ECM blog.


A good APEX tip on setting the default for APEX popup LOV records displayed at the Inside APEX blog.

PM Taxonomy

Where does your project manager (or you if you're a project manager) fit into this handy classification of PMs at the Radvision blog (as pointed out by the I'm Just a Simple DBA blog)?

Forms Conversion

Work continues on the anxiously awaited Forms conversion program, as we learn from this posting at David Peake's APEX blog. They are throwing open the early adopters program to a wider audience, so keep an eye on David's blog for updates. and NUMA

David Closson demonstrates (albeit by proxy) that yes, you can boot a boot a Large SGA on AMD Servers Running Linux.

Index Impact

Changes to indexes can have radical effects...good or bad. Vivek Sharma examines Predicting Performance Impact due to change in Index Columns at his blog.

Chrome Tips

Yes, in addition to something you find on antique cars, Chrome tips are tips about using the new Google Chrome browser. I like it so far, but it has a lot of catchup to do before it outpaces Firefox. Of course since the Firefox 3 upgrade was a disaster for me, I'm a good candidate for playing with a new browser. Main advantage: Chrome is fast, and you can set options to make it even faster using the tips at this page. Main drawback: No extensions. I love my pera-kun add-on to Foxfire that lets me read Chinese text with pop-up definitions. But it's not available for Chrome.

Going to Open World and Use Hyperion?

Some excellent notes at the wonderfully name Look Smarter Than You Are blog here.
