Firefox and EBS, ADI, Constraints, JDE, PeopleSoft, DBA's, Library for DBAs

EBS and Firefox

Tired of IE? I was, long ago, and moved to Firefox. I've had problems since the 3.0 release, but it's still a better browser than IE by far (though I must admit to an affection for the new, bare-bones Chrome browser from Google). In any case, there can be some challenges getting Firefox to make its peace with Oracle EBS. Gareth Roberts has some wisdom to share on this at his In Depth Apps - Oracle EBusiness Suite blog.

ADI on 10gR2

The ADI is now certified on 10gR2, as you can read about here on Steven Chen's Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog. He has another good posting on R12 from Openworld: Maximum Availability Architecture: Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.


The database, like society, is always somewhere on the continuous line that runs from locked down, buttoned up restriction on one end to carefree code it as you like looseness on the other. A lengthy post over at the Tahiti View blog gives one Oracle employee's perspective on some of the pluses and minuses of constraints. I'm sorry to tell developers that he still seems to like constraints, overall. Read all about it here


If JD Edwards training is what you seek, have a look at the links from this posting at the JD Edwards Advisor blog.


The PeopleSoft tipster has some good hands on postings of late, like this one on Migrating Navigation Collections and Pagelets

Javier's PeopleSoft blog has some good information on the pros/cons/howto of avoiding password expiration in PeopleSoft here.


Application developers and DBAs are often at odds. I'm an ex-DBA, so I smiled when reading this item at I'm Just a Simple DBA recounting the rebellion of the developers...and its sad conclusion.

And on the subject of DBAs, Tanel Poder has a link to a great library of syntax here.
