Oracle Priority Service Infogram This Week: Java, Data Warehousing, EBS, WLS, Storage and Memory, Hyperion, Scripting, EJB, DBA, Security, Exadata


The Oracle Technology Network Blog (aka TechBlog) brings us the glad tiding that Reborn.

The Aquarium, a blog which deals exclusively in virtual, programmatic fish, announces that GlassFish 3.1 is here!

Data Warehousing

The Data Warehouse Insider blog lets us know that Conventional Parallel Inserts do Exist in Oracle 11. It's a good thing. I thought I was just seeing things.


James Bayer's Blog has a very useful item for the WLS techies up at his blog: Look Inside WebLogic Server Embedded LDAP with an LDAP Explorer.

Storage and Memory

A good white paper over at Technet on Oracle Database Smart Flash Cache will help fill in the details on this valuable 11g feature.

Meanwhile, over at Storage Mojo, the decades long discussion of the pluses, minuses and expenses of SSD rolls on: Flash isn’t storage!


In 2 Hyperion has another great series going: Oracle EPM Troubleshooting and Debugging Guide (Part 1 of 2)


The Pythian Blog announces that: DBD::Oracle 1.28 Release Candidate 2 has appeared on the scene.


The ADF Unleashed blog gives us a tip on: Simulating LOV (List Of Values) in EJB.


I like this article. It gives you a few scripts for a question that a DBA always has to ask when called away from some vital task or other to answer the phone: Who are you and what do you WANT?!. What’s my name? - Finding out user information by asking the user, over at the Global Oracle Contractors Network.


It may be old hat for a tough and smart security expert, but for the rest of us it's good to have an explanation of cryptography basics in English: Web Cryptography: Salted Hash and Other Tasty Dishes, over at A List Apart.


The books on Exadata are starting to appear. This is an announcement of some early release chapters available from Tanel Poder: Expert Oracle Exadata book – Alpha chapters available for purchase!

Berkeley DB

I'm a relational type, but I'll be the first to admit that there are some applications where you just need a big bin to store things without losing track. That, and several other applications, are where Berkeley DB comes in. Have a look at: Using Oracle Berkeley DB as a NoSQL Data Store over at Technet.
