This post is an unusual request to buy a book. It's not often you can feel this positive about buying a computer book, so please read through this and see what I mean. From the Oracle Technology Network Blog (aka TechBlog): Buy This Book! (For a Good Cause)

Solaris: ZFS Hands On

Here's a good practical introduction to the subject: Hands-On Lab: Introduction to the Oracle Solaris ZFS File System.

Java Security Patch Available

From the folks at customer support:

Critical Patch Update - June 2011

The Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update - June 2011 was released on June 7th, 2011. Oracle strongly recommends applying the patches as soon as possible.

The Critical Patch Update Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes the list of products affected, a summary of the security vulnerabilities, and a pointer to obtain the latest releases and patches. Supported products that are not listed in the "Supported Products Affected" section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.

Also, it is essential to review the Critical Patch Update supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information.

The Advisory is available at the following location:

Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update - June 2011


Speaking of Java, Computerworld has an article on our new beta: Oracle offers JavaFX 2.0 beta.

Over at the Java / Oracle SOA blog there is a good posting on EJB and ADF Java or EJB DataControl features in JDeveloper 11gR2.


How sure are you that the person in the next cubicle isn't snooping on the HR files while you are reading this? How sure are you that your seemingly unflappable DBA/manager/network person/whatever is not in fact a threat to your security, an inside threat. You're not sure. That's the trouble with living life. It's like reading a detective novel, but you can't skip to the end to see who did it (or go back and edit some earlier chapters so you end up with the Maltese Falcon, for that matter). Talking Identity has some material from Nishant Kaushik to help Deploy Multi-Layered Security to Combat Insider Threats.
