Werner Puschitz talked yesterday about Automated Oracle Real Application Clusters Deployment: How Dell Does IT. The result of the automation is, install a 6 nodes cluster in 30 minutes. Which is quite impressive. Werner divided the automation in three RPM packages. 1) configure the host: set up private and virtual interface (according to a naming […]
In the Metreon Theater, Quest announced toad 9. Steven Feuerstein presented one feature : Unit Testing in TOAD. Go to http://www.toadworld.com, unless you are a vi man
I like this one. It will really ease the migration to Linux. A very good news for me. Go to oracle.com/linux
I have been following 2 sessions with Juan Loaiza about new features. A very few of them here : SQL> create edition v1_0; SQL> alter session set edition=v1_0; You can create a versioning of your objects, so you will be able to have many versions of the same package at the same time. It is […]
I tried to watch the keynotes yesterday, but it is just to difficult to sit and not sleep for me… so I have seen only a few minutes of each one. The PL/SQL 11g session was excellent, I wrote an overview in a separate post. I started the afternoon with APC session, about the importance […]
a new major release of the famous compression utility for windows is available as a beta http://www.winzip.com/betawz.cgi Better compression, RAR+Bzip formats extraction and more
The presentation of Bryn Llewellyn was a good one! He talked about the 11g new features. Well, he said it is maybe not named 11g and maybe none of the features will be available. But since the beta is already available, I guess all of the features he talked will be available. It is very […]

I updated my calendar for Oracle Open World. By rechecking the location, I figured out I did book to much. Unfortunately, I will not be able to go to steven feuerstein session S281918 on monday, because it starts at the same time as tom session ends. I had a difficult choice for tuesday : – […]
I just confirm my registration, got my badge and my bag. I also have my room at Fishermanns Wharf. Today I am going to China Town and in the evening to E&O -do not confuse with I/O- for the Ace dinner.
I downloaded the CPUOct2006 patch for 10.2.0.2 and applied it successfully to my database.

Applying the security […]
In about:config in firefox I wrote about editting the search engine in firefox, for example to have google.ch instead of google.com. This can be done in Microsoft Internet Explorer too, by regedit-ting HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Internet Explorer SearchScopes
Yesterday I posted about tnsnames in Sun Java System Direcotry Server. I have to solve one problem : sqlnet requires anonymous search capability on the ldap server. Which I cannot offer in production. So I created an Oracle Virtual Directory, which matches my anonymous request to an authenticated request to the Sun Directory.
In this post, I did show how easy it is to use OID to resolve your network service names. Apart OID, AD (Microsoft Active Directory) is also supported. However, I do not want to use such products, as my customer already have a Sun Java System Directory Server running. It is quite easy. Here are […]
I just discover about:config (type it in your location bar). It is a very simple configuration editor, with user settings in bold. For example I like to use a local google version to search (google.ch instead of google.com), so I configured browser.search.defaulturl
