Hyperion, R12 and BIP, EBS, ADF, 11g Clusterware, External Table Preprocessor, Public Grants, Carl Backstrom


An announcement from the Look Smarter Than You Are blog that the new EPM release is out, and it swats bugs left and right. Read about it here.

R12 and BI Publisher Patch

A new patch is out for changing the default layout format between RTF/PDF/Excel when submitting XML / BI Publisher Concurrent Request in R12. Read about it at the In Depth Apps - Oracle eBusiness Suite.


Steven Chan is continuing a series of Open World recaps with this posting on Advanced Deployment Architectures for Oracle E-Business Suite.


Raghu Yadav's weblog brings us some good links on How to deploy ADF Application on Oracle WebLogic 10.3.

11g Clusterware

11g allows you to use ASM to protect a single instance, not just a multinode system. Alejandro Vargas has a good posting on the steps involved.

External Table Preprocessor 

The Structured Data blog has a very useful posting on usage of a feature introduced in 11g (and being backported to, an external table preprocessor. 

Public Grants

It seems simple enough: Revoke public grants to improve security, yes? Well, not quite so fast! Good posting over at Pete Finnigan's blog on the subject, with some valuable material in the comments as well.

Carl Backstrom

As I reported a couple of weeks ago, we lost Carl Backstrom, one of our most popular Oracle bloggers, to a car accident. There is a memorial entry at his blog and a memorial fund open to benefit his daughter.
