Oracle Infogram This Week: Performance, RDBMS, EBS, SOA, Webinars, APEX, Virtual Conference

Performance: Hard Parses

Hard parses can be the bane of an SQL tuner's existence. Here are a couple of postings to help drive the plague away:

From Orclville, SQL Tuning - Low Hanging Fruit.

and from Charles Hooper's Oracle Notes: Consistent Gets During a Hard Parse – a Test Case to See One Possible Cause


Several items on the new release:

Some news from the front lines on using the latest and greatest version of RAC,, on the Oak Table net site: First contact with Oracle RAC.

At Miladin Modrakovic's Blog: Oraclue, we have information on Oracle Patch Set and new patching strategy

And for some real in-depth performance info on, the ever technical Charles Hooper's Oracle notes: TKPROF in Unexpected Improvement – Rows (1st), Rows (avg), and Rows (max)


From Oracle E-Business Suite Technology:

Understanding Support Windows for E-Business Suite Releases


It is a very useful thing to 'throw' events. This posting At the Oracle .. Java .. OpenSource .. SOA blog, helps you do so in SOA. I've always liked the term 'throw' in a computing context. It reminds of phrases like 'throw a tantrum', though it is more often the computer that causes me to throw a tantrum rather than the other way around.


At the splendidly named Technology Defenestration blog (how many times have you wanted to defenestrate technology?), there's a handy set of links to Webinars of interest to those working with Oracle, RedHat Linux and VMWare.


I have no idea if this is going to be a really good conference, but since it is being promoted by Scott Spendolini, I suspect it will be. It's a perfectly good excuse to go to Brusells, Dallas, or both, depending on your budget, location and preference in cuisine: APEXposed 2010 Dallas Discounts.

Also in the world of APEX is this article on What's New in Oracle Application Express.

Virtual Conference

There are some really great names preparing to present this first-time virtual conference over at Kerry Osborne's Oracle Blog: Virtual Oracle Conference.
