Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 08-FEB-2012

Cloud Computing

The Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control blog informs us that Cloud Management documentation has been enhanced and released.

The Oracle Enterprise Manager blog tells us about Delivering Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.


Rulegen dives into some of the mechanics of how triggers fire during a merge: Statement-level constraint validation: MERGE + MTI.

Over at Triggers Considered Harmful, Considered Harmful is a posting on Where TK agrees with TK (or: why are triggers harmful). So between the title of the article and the title of the blog, figuring out what I should think of triggers makes me wish I paid more attention in algebra class so I could parse the whole thing out.

SQL Developer

SQL Developer 3.1 production is now available.   

...and the That Jeff Smith blog provides you with Your Guide to New Features in Oracle SQL Developer version 3.1.


The A-Team - SOA (didn't they have a TV show?) are pleased to announce that the SOA 11G Database Growth Management Strategy white paper (the 'purging' whitepaper) is now available.

PeopleSoft and MOS 

Sometimes it's hard to find the patches you need in MOS. Here's a document to assist on PeopleSoft patches in particular: Searching using the Certifications Application.

 Oracle Support

The Proactive Support EPM and BI blog has a pointer to a good note on Hot Topics on MOS and patches.


Jonathan Lewis has his new book out: Oracle Core: Essential Internals for DBAs and Developers.

At his blog this week there is an engaging experiment in Index naming.
