For Oracle customers located in Perth Australia, OTN will be holding an Oracle Developer Day on February 18th to cover contemporary Oracle development topics. Oracle Developer Days don’t come to Perth too often, something to do with being at the end of the earth I suspect, so we hope customers will take the opportunity to attend while the opportunity presents itself.
From a middleware perspective I’ll be covering in two sessions Oracle’s Mobile Platform, specifically looking at Oracle’s ADF Mobile and Oracle Mobile Suite. This is your chance as a customer to get a handle on Oracle’s mobile strategy from a development perspective, as well as a good look at what benefits Oracle ADF Mobile and Oracle Mobile Suite can deliver for both developers and your business.
The day is not just about middleware though, and Oracle has been lucky enough to have well known and respected community speakers Connor McDonald and Penny Cookson join the line of speakers. Between Penny and Connor they will also cover what’s new in the Oracle database for developers, how to internet enable your database for mobile, and mobilizing your Oracle APEX applications. Overall you can see the theme for the day is "mobile", which really shouldn’t be that surprising from a developer point of view as the development world hums the "mobile first" mantra.
We hope you’ll take the opportunity to attend the event, listen to both community leaders and Oracle staff give their vision of the mobile development landscape, and network with the local Oracle community. More information about the event and how to register can be found here.
Speaking of new features, here is what’s new in Oracle Database, SQL and PL/SQL from 9iR1 until 12cR1.
In the previous release of JDeveloper 18.104.22.168.0 in a special build known as CLOUD, Oracle included Git support built into the IDE. Recently on our JDeveloper 22.214.171.124.0 release it appeared we had removed it. Where did the Git go?
I’m happy to say Git support is still available, but not as a direct part of the IDE as per the previous version. Rather in 126.96.36.199.0 it is supported through an extension available via the Help -> Check for Updates menu option, then the Official Oracle Extensions and Updates repository. You can also download the extension from the following extensions page and install it manually.
Schemas and users are frequently used interchangeably as if they were the same thing. For the most part, that’s ok. In Oracle the concepts are so tightly coupled that thinking of them as the same thing is not really that far wrong.
In reality, a user is a database account that is given a password and permissions. A schema is a container, or namespace, for containing schema objects. Schema objects are things like tables, views and indexes.
In Oracle, when a us
A while ago I said that I’d be posting a product review here. Unfortunately work got in the way of me posting the review as quickly as I would have liked. The nice people at Ucertify sent me a review kit for the OCA Oracle Database 11g: Administration 1 exam. I very much like the […]
