Oracle Infogram This Week: ECM/UCM, I/PM, Splunk, RDBMS, Business IT, Hyperion, Exadata, MySQL, Solaris, Mobile, GoldenGate, Memories, Changes


I was researching an issue for a client on UCM and found a posting of interest (with an index of other postings at the bottom) at the Online Apps DBA blog: Integrate UCM (ECM/Content Server) with Microsoft Active Directory as LDAP Provider


A little old, but there's some good material in here for those of you considering the move from 10g/Appserver I/PM to the new Java version integrated with WLS: Oracle I/PM 11g Webcast Recap, over at the Oracle Enterprise 2.0 blog.


Splunk is a tool for indexing and organizing logs that I'd not heard of before today. Sounds useful and interesting. I'd be interested to know how our customers are using it: Splunk 4.2 Operational Intelligence.


Some good under the covers material on indexing from Richard Foote: Oracle11g Bitmap-Join IOTs (Us and Them) and SQL joins: Nested Loops Join – the Smaller Table is the Driving Table, the Larger Table is the Driving Table from Charles Hooper.

Business IT

Continuing my only moderately daft concept from a past issue of the Infogram Ports and Thoughts this article: Paying Too Much for Custom Application Implementation points to another aspect of future computer assisted IT: development. There is always going to be a human laying down the core elements and dealing with the tricky bits, but what about the simple, patterned connecting the dots kind of work described here? How much easier would it be if these pieces of code were expressed not as words on a screen, but objects in the metaverse? Simple programming tasks could potentially be reduced to game that pays its participants micro fees for solving puzzles, lining up objects in patterns that translate to consistent pieces of functioning code on the back end. But the question that naturally arises is: if the computer can formulate the elements to present to humans why can't it just go ahead and finish the process? Well, it can, at least after The Singularity.


In 2 Hyperion brings us the second part of their Hyperion Troubleshooting and Debugging Guide.



CBR Software Open Source lets us know that: Oracle introduces enhanced MySQL Enterprise Edition.



I mentioned a series of books that looked interesting last week, including at least one on GoldenGate. I'm not the only person interested: How to Set Up a ZFS Root Pool Mirror in Oracle Solaris 11 Express.


Tom Kyte looks back: I can relate...

It can be worse. He could be saying ...we used Gopher.
