EBS, APEX, Hyperion, IBM System z, Performance, Data Modeling


This week from the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Blog:

Purging in EBS

Many systems run along for a time and then discover that yes, you need to purge items from time to time. A note of note on the subject is Metalink note 752322.1, Reducing Your Oracle E-Business Suite Data Footprint using Archiving, Purging, and Information Lifecycle Management


David Peake on Oracle APEX blog has some good material for those of you who want to kick the tires on APEX 3.2. 


So, now that there are three conferences for Hyperion folks instead of one, which one should you pick? That's the question posed to Tim Tow, and his answers are here.

IBM System z Resources

The Mainframe Watch Belgium blog came up with a great resource document on running Linux on IBM System z. I have to admit I haven't been to Belgium since I was about 6, but apparently they've started watching the mainframes there. Something like a northern European form of bird watching. Only the birds are much larger and not nearly as mobile.

Performance: SQL

The OptimalDBA blog has a few thoughts on when is a SQL statement too long?

Performance: CRM

The Oracle Applications DBA blog brings us a good posting on how to enable tracing on a CRM user here.

Data Modeling

I seemed to have missed this posting from last year at the Oracle at Work blog, but here's a link now. The author is pleased that SQL Developer now has a free data modeling application available.


Large block tablespaces, indexes, rebuilding them (or rather, NOT rebuilding them), and an odd music store, all at Richard Foote's Oracle blog. Part 2 or a series here. And part 1 right here.
