JDE, AIA, APEX, Liking Pie, Security, Performance


An interesting post over at the JD Edwards Advisor blog on EnterpriseOne Built-in Dashboards. This article discusses using available features to get more out of an application product.

But there is a larger issue loosely related to this that I have run into with the Oracle RDBMS over the years. I've often heard customer management arguing for an application to be 'database agnostic'. As a result, nothing but ANSI standard SQL is used and many features unique to a particular RDBMS are not designed in to the build. So in order to avoid a possible one-time rebuild in the future the designers are crippling the everyday operation of their RDBMS and not using some of the 'neater than sliced bread' features that they are paying for.


Over at the Official AIA Blog (you couldn't get more official than that): RV 2.5 EBO Implementation Maps and EBO HTML documentation are available on Metalink Note # 881022.1


David Peake, author of the David Peake on Oracle APEX blog is looking for customer references for the product? Have you had some good experiences with APEX you want to share? Considering that it's been my experience that APEX is one of the most elegant products we make (and as a result of that elegance saves IT departments large quantities of cash by converting legacy apps quickly, scaling smoothly, and being capable of going from concept to proof of concept at light speed). Please have a look and see if you can help David out.

I Like Pie

One of the classic silly lines that circulates on the Internet, often appearing in the profiles of computer people on the 'something about yourself' section of various social networks is: 'I like pie'. Well, here's a pie that Abhinav Agarwal over at the Oracle Business Intelligence blog did not in fact like. It's a pie chart with more slices than you can find in Brooklyn on a summer afternoon, and he even offers remedies.

Secure Programming

Eddie Awad has a worth its weight in gold list of links on the Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors


Also in the realm of performance is the last installment of James Morle's series The Oracle Wait Interface Is Useless (sometimes) over at his blog.


Tanel Poder answers the question How to CANCEL a query running in another session? over at his blog. Now I've watched too much of the Sopranos, so my immediate solution is: You go over and slap the user around until they stop. But Tanel's solution is a lot nicer and involves the use of computers.
