Oracle Infogram this Week: ADF, Siebel, APEX, OTN, Exadata, PeopleSoft


Over at ADF Inspired is a useful posting on Undoing changes using Middle Tier Savepoints.

Siebel and BI

The Siebel Essentials blog continues its series of useful tips, for instance #5, Pivot Table Options.


Over at the Apex Blog Aggregator is a good hint for when you want to join a lot of tables in a hurry. The builtin interface function of SQL Developer lets you do the joins without writing the SQL and even aliases the names for you. Read about it here: Fast writing of Queries with Joins in SQL Developer.


Delicious is a handy gathering place for info. Here's a listing on Oracle Technet material.

One that stands out for me is the whitepaper on Application Failover with Oracle Database 11g.


Okay, you're at a cocktail party and you realize that everyone in the room is an Exadata expert except you. How are you going to bluff your way through? Yes! This article on the key terms and concepts of Exadata from Oracle's Kevin Closson.

(And yes, I know the cocktail party thing is fictitious because Exadata experts never leave the server room, but it's a literary device.Another item from Kevin Closson this week, this time on patching: Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Patchset 1 ( Is Now Available, But This Is Not Just An Announcement Blog Entry.)


The PeopleSoft DBA Blog has a handy posting on Performance Overhead of Multiple SQL calls in SQR
