PeopleSoft, SOA, EBS, Index Rebuilds, Performance


I just noticed a PeopleSoft Wiki out there. The wiki is one of the better concepts of the new Web 2.0 apps (think of how many times you've used Wikipedia in the last month and you'll see what I mean). So I submit for your consideration the (unofficial) PeopleSoft Wiki

Another item of interest this week is Performance Metrics and XML Reporting in PeopleSoft

over at the PeopleSoft DBA blog.SOA

I'm happy to note that there are more SOA blogs out there by the day. Many of them are internal blogs with lots of nice grotty technical details. Example: A posting on How does Restricted Task Reassignment Work in SOA 11g at the Oracle SOA Best Practice And Troubleshooting blog.


This week at the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog:

Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

BPEL Certified for Prebuilt E-Business Suite 12 SOA Integrations

Deploying E-Business Suite on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Elastic clouds? Sure hate to see a non-elastic one. It would be a great challenge to air travel)

Oracle Internet Directory 11g ( Certified on Eight New Platforms for EBS

Index Rebuilds

I was going to title this 'Index Rebuilds, For or Against', but I can't really find articles and discussions from Oak Table members favoring regular rebuilds.

Well, I'm not sure it's no harm. If you are doing regular index rebuilds please dig around in the following articles and discussions and judge for your yourselves:

Want to see the leading lights in Oracle performance gathered in one place, many of them holding beers and eating BBQ? Consider the Hotsos 2010 Symposium. This is always one of the best conferences of the year. Remember that it is limited to 500 participants, so you may want to sign up sooner rather than later.
