Oracle Infogram This Week: Patching, Exadata, Programming, SOAP, APEX, Hyperion , GoldenGate



There was a recent (Nov. 2010) change in the way nomenclature operates for patching on EPM. Please see this note in MOS for details: Release Nomenclature and Numbering for Oracle EPM Products (Doc ID 1219387.1).


Looking for a Sun patch? (I'm tempted to make some outrageous pun about shady patches, etc., but will show restraint). You can find some info at the Patch Corner blog (yes, they have a blog for that): Searching for Oracle Sun patches in My Oracle Support (MOS).


There are a million stories in the city....thousands on Exadata...dozens on Exadata performance....only one from Tanel Poder on Performance Stories from Exadata Migrations.

Structured Data gives us some insight on Making the Most of Oracle Exadata – A Technical Review.

Programming lets us know that Oracle enhanced adapter 1.3.2 is released.


The ORA-00001: Unique constraint violated blog lets us know about



Triangle Circle Square tells us of something small but elegant to do in APEX: Adding tooltips to your Apex report.

Over at Technet you can find the rundown on Oracle Application Express Web Services Integration, including how to hook things up with Amazon S3, Amazon Store and alien spaceships. Well, two of those, anyway.


This is something that is handy for a lot more than Hyperion. Need a way to wipe out the data in a spreadsheet and leave the shell intact? in2Hyperion shows us how: Removing Data From Excel Templates.


I've said before how much neater GoldenGate is than sliced bread and other innovations and achievements of western civilization. But it still doesn't play nice with absolutely everything in the Oracle universe, particularly compression, at least for now, so please read this cautionary note if you are planning to use GoldenGate (and then use it, because it's still neater than sliced bread): Oracle GoldenGate and Compressed Tables over at Oracle Notes.
