PeopleSoft, GoldenGate, EBS, Hyperion, Exadata, Siebel, Security


Here's a handy post from the PeopleSoft Corner blog: Single Pay Vouchers - Let Excel Key Them In For You! You're going to have to test this thoroughly, of course. Macros are very cool and powerful, but there is sometimes a horrible moment when you realize that the macro is broken but is not failing, it's continue to move right on, changing away, like a runaway train. But since this is a single transaction macro the train doesn't have far to run.


The Oracle Notes blog has a fairly extensive set of Oracle GoldenGate Best Practices and Tips. I'd love to see comments from our user community. Can anyone corroborate the blog posting? Any areas you think are off the mark or particularly valuable?


The latest links from the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog:

Latest DSTv14 Timezone Patches Available for E-Business Suite

Database 10gR2 Certified with E-Business Suite


The in 2 Hyperion blog answers the question: Why is the maximum number of returnable rows in SmartView only 5,000?

This looks like something a lot of Hyperion techies are going to want to play with. Tim Tow has posted the code for his Essbase Outline Performance Testing - Do It Yourself Kit .

If you didn't make it to ODTUG Kaleidescope, or you missed Matt Milella's talk on Smart View Extensions, here is a summary on his Essbase Labs blog.


Exadata is setting records and taking names. Now you can get some customization for your industry as we find out from The Data Warehouse Insider: Exadata Intelligent Warehouse Solutions for Industries . I want one with racing stripes and a lot of chrome. It will make server room tours just that much more interesting.


Siebel Essentials lets us know about the Oracle BI 11g: Lift-Off. It's looking like OBI EE lost the EE and gained a whole lot of features.


Here's a posting I like, but I think you would have to run it through more than the usual amount of testing to make sure you got the results you were going for. It's a very elegant idea over at Arup Nanda's blog: Build a Simple Firewall for Databases Using SQL Net. Maybe it's just a classic instance of McGyver syndrome (the same ailment that causes DBAs to attempt to set up a RAC cluster using nothing but 6 PDAs, 2 smart phones, a spool of coax cable and a car battery), but using SQL Net to build a firewall is just plain cool.
