BI, PeopleSoft, Essbase, SOA, APEX, 11G


Over at BI Publisher Developer's Diary there is a short but handy posting on Having SQL queries from different databases in one data template.


The PeopleSoft DBA blog brings us an item that is of interest to a quite focused group of the overall Oracle community. if you are using PoepleSoft COBOL this should be of interest: Controlling How PeopleSoft Cobol Collects Statistics.

Running PeopleSoft on Linux? There's a great hands on posting about that here: Application Designer on Linux.

One of the blogs I've started following recently is On the PeopleSoft Road (love the title, sounds like you're running your business from inside a 60s folksong). There are several postings on running PeopleSoft on VMWare, you can find the latest here.


This article on ODI Series - Extracting essbase formula issue over at the More to Life Than... blog attracted my attention as much for its intro as its content:

"Just a quick blog from me today. I was contemplating writing a useless blog having a go at companies I know nothing about for absolutely no reason but I decided there is more to life and I am going to answer a question asked on the otn forums, which hopefully will do more good than bad."

There aren't a lot of books out there yet about Oracle's SOA, and Olaf Heimburger brings us a book review on the latest: Getting Started with Oracle SOA Suite 11g R1


We don't usually feature job postings here at the Infogram, but Scott Spendolini couldn't resist this one, and neither can I. Yes, you too can use APEX to work on the massive piece of technology that CERN is using to study blackholes. I'm a pretty whimsical person, so I can just imagine the conversation on your first day:
"Ok, here's your cubicle. The location of offices is based on seniority, with the junior people closest to the accelerator. Ah, you don't want to put your coffee cup down just there....WHOOSH, POP!...Right. We'll get you a new cup. Your first project will be calculating the attenuation on your cup as it entered the black hole. Welcome aboard!"

Guy Harrison has an article on Using the Oracle 11GR2 database flash cache at his blog.
