Hyperion, Identity, EBS, SOA, Performance, APEX, Demo Site


Ranzal & Associates continues their very handy series on Life Cycle Management with this posting on Special uses for Life Cycle Management (LCM)

A very original (and only little twisted) Quiz on Essbase this week from Glenn Schwarzberg's Essbase blog in the form of a song, along with a pointer to a new LinkedIn group on Essbase.


Over at the Talking Identity blog there's a rundown of several conferences of interest coming up in May: It’s gonna be a jam-packed May for Identity.


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

New EBS 12.0 AutoConfig Rollup 7 Now Available

Using Microsoft Office 2007 with E-Business Suite Release 12

Business Continuity for EBS Using Oracle 11g Physical Standby DB

Oracle Access Manager 10gR3 Certified with E-Business Suite


Over at the Inside scoop on Oracle SOA Suite, BPM and EDA blog we have a good rundown on: 11gR1 Patchset 2 ~ (SOA) features.


A valuable posting on a potential performance pitfall involving materialized views from Alberto Dell'Era . Please note that he recommends the use of an underscore parameter. You will want to open an SR and confirm the use of such a parameter before implementing on any production system. There are some underscore parameters that have become standards (some of the ones set as a standard part of an EBS installation come to mind), but you should always err on the side of caution on these settings. I have seen customers in a backup and recovery situation use an underscore parameter that forced the DB open. It also put the database in an unsupported state and took a great deal of time and money to recover. Unless very specifically called for in Oracle documentation or recommended by Oracle Support, underscore parameters should be kept in the world of sandboxes and throwaway instances. What Alberto is describing, however, is something that is a valid use of the parameter once you confirm the situation with Support in an SR.

Tanel Poder has links to an excellent article on latch contention (and some other goodies) at his blog here.


Sad news for the APEX world, Scott Spadafore, long time Oracle employee and a major player in the world of APEX development, has died. You can find links to the memorials here at Yet Another Blog About Oracle Express.
