Hyperion, JD Edwards, My Oracle Support, Collaborate09, Optimizer, EBS


Over at the In 2 Hyperion blog there is a brief but useful posting on the utility of dirty calcs

JD Edwards Webcasts

Since the JD Edwards Advisor blog was kind enough to relay info on two webcasts about upgrades, I thought I would extend the chain one link further and link to them here.

My Oracle Support

Ok, so we're renaming something, and you know that's unusual at Oracle. Right. And we're changing around our knowledge base/support portal entirely with the introduction of My Oracle Support.  We are going this because:

1. We like shiny new technical things.
2. We want to torment you.
3. We want to improve Oracle Support.

If you think the answer is mainly 3 and perhaps a little of 1, you are right. We don't really want to torment you by moving everything around to where you can't find it (though we may have succeeded in doing so, it was not intentional). As Chris Warticki points out in this brief posting on Projects, My Oracle Support will open up whole new ways to get support in an orderly, timely manner. Crisis management can be fun and adventurous at times, but so can a badly planned vacation. We'd rather have your support experience be well planned and perhaps even fun here and there. That's why we are introducing so many positive changes to the system.


Tom Kyte has some thoughts for us on his experiences at Collaborate09, as well as some links to other Oracle gurus' findings here.


You've set cursor sharing to shared. You've sat back with a cup of coffee to watch and...there are hundreds of child cursors being spawned. The Inside the Oracle Optimizer blog explains why this is normal, under certain circumstances, and does so in a way that is very instructive about how the cursor sharing feature works.
