Here’s the first addition to the website in 2009: Data Pump Enhancements in Oracle Database 11g Release 1 One hand typing takes a long time. Cheers Tim…

Fedora 10 and Oracle 11gR1…

I like to meddle with Fedora from time to time, just so I can see what’s coming round the corner in RHEL. I read recently that Fedora 11 will be the base for RHEL6, which means we are about 6 months away from seeing what the future of RHEL is going to be… Much as […]

PIVOT and UNPIVOT in 11g…

I’m trying to get back into the swing of writing again after my 2 month layoff. It’s a little daunting, but quite fun as well. There’s a bunch of 11g new features that didn’t make it into the OCP exam, and the PIVOT and UNPIVOT operators fall slap bang into that category. PIVOT and UNPIVOT […]

Oracle 11g RAC On Linux Using VMware Server 2…

I’ve just put another Oracle 11g new features article live: Resource Manager Enhancements in Oracle Database 11g Release 1 Cheers Tim…

Scheduler Enhancements in 11g…

The latest article in my OCP revision notes has surfaced: Scheduler Enhancements in Oracle Database 11g Release 1 The detached and lightweight jobs look fine, but I’m not totally happy with the remote external jobs. I don’t think they quite live up to their promise, and they seem like a security issue waiting to happen. […]

AWR Baseline Enhancements in 11g…

I’m sorry to polute my movie review blog with some Oracle stuff, but here’s a little something on AWR Baseline Enhancements in 11g. Cheers Tim…

Automated Database Maintenance Task Management in 11g…

Some more OCP upgrade exam revision notes: Automated Database Maintenance Task Management in Oracle Database 11g Release 1 I’ve tried to avoid getting caught up in a discussion of the scheduler and resource manager as this would make the article massive. Cheers Tim…
