Oracle Infogram: OpenWorld, ADF, EBS, Recovery, APEX, PeopleSoft, OBIEE 11g


Have you told your Priority Service SDM who you are sending to OpenWorld? How about figuring out where to go and which lectures are really good technical material and which are, well, not good technical material? Here's a starting point. The Structured Data Blog has a rundown on the Oak Table Net members presenting this year at OOW: Oracle OpenWorld 2010: Sessions By OakTable Members


Speaking of OOW, Shay Shmeltzer's Weblog has this posting with a link to the official (youbetcha) guide for JDeveloper/ADF users: The Official JDeveloper/ADF Guide to Oracle Develop/Oracle OpenWorld

and from ADF Inspired, this posting which, surprisingly, is technical, but not OOW related: Undoing changes using Middle Tier Savepoints


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


If you've lost a production system and cannot recover due, for instance, to a loss of the system tablespace or unfixable undo/redo corruption with missing control files, i.e. really far up the creek without a paddle, there is an Oracle Support service called DUL (the Data UnLoader). It's a paid service, not cheap, but a lot cheaper than sitting down with 10,000,000 3x5 cards and a terminal and reentering the database. Now some enterprising folks have a non-Oracle version that you may want to play with. I would still entrust prod to Oracle Support, but let's say you have a test system that gets hammered and you need some of the data, or you want to take a look at something from the prod system while waiting to get a DUL in place. In short, there are a lot of uses for an item like this. jDUL DUDE - an Oracle DUL like tool - last resort Oracle recovery.


Over at (YABAOAE) Yet Another Blog About Oracle Application Express there's a handy item on: Automatic Time Zone support in Application Express 4.0.


Rittman Mead Consulting is highlighting (that's also known as bragging) that they have an article in Oracle magazine on Using Oracle Essbase Release 11.1.2 Aggregate Storage Option Database


Important announcement:

URGENT: Issue with PeopleSoft Menu Items starting January, 2011

What are we announcing?

We need to bring to your attention an issue for customers operating PeopleSoft products that will manifest itself on Jan 1, 2011 if not corrected before then.

Many Content References (CRefs) delivered with PeopleSoft applications will expire on December 31, 2010. If this is not corrected, the menu items represented by these expired CRefs will no longer be visible. Access to the portion of the application normally available through the menu is unavailable until the issue is corrected. This issue does not cause any data loss in the system.

It is critical that you review the solutions that are available in My Oracle Support, and take corrective action prior to Dec 31, 2010. There are 3 solutions, depending on the PeopleTools version(s) you are running for your application(s):

Doc ID 1183084.1 (E-CREF: How To Reset CRef Expire Dates From 2010-12-31 For PeopleTools 8.44-8.51)

Doc ID 1183075.1 (E-CREF: How To Reset CRef Expire Dates From 2010-12-31 For PeopleTools 8.40-8.43)

Doc ID 1183065.1 (E-CREF: How To Reset CRef Expire Dates From 2010-12-31 For PeopleTools 8.11-8.22)

Details about how to contact Oracle Global Customer Support for assistance with any concerns you may have with this issue are included in these solutions.

Thank you for your quick attention to this matter.
