What a shame to be spending a warm, sunny summer day in a hotel’s conference center. Even though it was a really nice hotel and a very interesting conference. About 300 attendees mostly from Western Australia found their way and … Continue reading →

Oracle 12c has increased the maximum length of character-based columns to 32K bytes – don’t get too excited, they’re stored out of lines (so similar in cost to LOBs) and need some modification to the parameter file and data dictionary (starting the database in upgrade mode) before you can use them. Richard Foote has a […]
This is part 3 of a multipart series of getting oracle RAC running on a cloud environment. In part 1, we set up a NFS server for shared storage. In part 2, we set up OS components for each RAC server. Now we finish up the OS configuration and move to Oracle grid infrastructure.
In part 1 of this series, we talked about some of the challenges of setting up Oracle RAC on a public cloud provider, and went on to order some VMs from provider Gandi, and finally configuring a NFS server for shared storage. In this post, we move on to configuring the rac servers themselves, rac01 and rac02.
I’ve been working on moving a lot of the testing and R&D work I do away from local virtual machines and onto cloud environments, for a few reasons: I can avoid carrying around a laptop all the time, and rather log onto the cloud wherever I happen to be It’s easy to scale down and…

This is yet another blog post with tips and tricks to help you (and me) download Oracle software without the help of a Web browser. If you Google “how to download Oracle with wget” you’ll find heaps of posts with useful tips. I decided to write this post to compile the methods I’m aware of…
How to download patches from My Oracle Support (MOS) directly to the server? This has bothered me since the ftp access was closed a few years ago. Of course, I’ve been given some options by Oracle, like, I could access MOS from the server using a browser (probably from a VNC desktop – thank you…
Here’s one of those little details which I would have said just couldn’t be true – except it’s in the manuals, and the manuals happen to be right. I’ve created a couple of table which take up few hundred blocks – and one of those tables has an index which is nearly unique. Now I’m […]
This is a little tip for customers using Oracle’s ADF Mobile.
If you’re like me, it’s possible you don’t rely on the online HTML version of the Mobile Developer’s Guide for ADF, but rather download a PDF version of the file to use locally (look to the “PDF” link to the top right of the guide). For me the convenience of the PDF is it’s faster, I can search the whole document easily, I can split read the document across two pages on my home monitor, if I lose my internet connection the document is still available, and it’s easy to read on my iPad (especially on long haul flights to the US across the Pacific where there is no internet connection!).
The trigger point for me to download the Oracle PDF documentation has always been on a new point release of JDeveloper. However in the case of ADF Mobile, as an extension to JDeveloper it is releasing at a much faster and independent schedule to JDeveloper and this includes updates to the documentation.
As such the 220.127.116.11.0 ADF Mobile PDF guide you have locally might be out of date and you should take the opportunity to download the latest version. This is also particularly important for ADF Mobile as not only are many new features being added for each release and included in the new documentation, but the guide is under rapid improvement to clarify much of what has been written to date. Our documentation teams are super responsive to suggestions on how to improve the guides and this often shows per point release.
How do you tell you’ve the latest guide? Look to the document part number which right now is “E24475-03″. This is a unique ID per release for the document, the first part being the document number, and the part after the dash the revision number. If the website document number has a higher revision number, time to download a new up to date PDF.
One last thing to share, you can follow the ADF Mobile guide document manager Brian Duffield on Twitter to keep abreast of updates.
