It's been an interesting morning. I had an issue with internal development where they had a task flow and on one of the pages it had a region that contained a reference to a remote task flow as well (running in a separate container). They wanted to have the local task flow to have access to the remote task flows page flow scope (a page flow specific memory context).

Going to be busy most of today lecturing to a packed house on the next release of JDeveloper which has WLS as the integrated server as well as a multitude of additions. I would guess there are somewhere on the order of 300+ people in the room and it's getting quite hot (we're on a break right now). I'll post more later on how it goes (so far so good).
So of course we're working on new versions of JDeveloper pretty much all the time but it amazes me the amount of scrutiny the releases have been receiving lately. I've already mentioned the fact that they are getting uptaken by internal developers but I sat in a meeting yesterday with the QA team and found out that in addition to the internal development efforts that QA has been building an app that takes the major points of pain from the internal development efforts, as well as our early adopters and blends them into a test application.
There are still a great number of Oracle Developer Days coming up in various towns across the US. I'll be doing the one in Salt Lake City on April 14th. Terrific training and hands-on labs help make sure that a superior level of understanding of the framework is achieved than could ever be hoped for from just a regular presentation.
The remaining upcoming dates / locations are as follows:
26-Feb: New York City 03-Mar: Dallas 10-Mar: Saint Louis 17-Mar: Reston 31-Mar: Passadena 14-Apr: Salt Lake 16-Apr: Boston
Was having an interesting discussion this morning regarding WLS architectures. The discussion centered around the notion of if one should use multiple WLS installations (ie: separate domain/server for each) to manage a project that has the need to deploy different apps to different containers. Or to use a single domain installation with multiple managed servers under that domain.
I’ve written a little how-to for understanding how database connections work in JDeveloper 11 technology preview – we’ve beefed up the reusability and automation of database connections for 11, but that’s caused some confusion because its different from how things were done in 10.1.3.x. We’re still making improvements for JDeveloper 11, but for now, the [...]
Today marks my 9th year at Oracle. But no worries, I don’t feel so old since I was hired at age 12 . In the past 9 years, I’ve attended and presented at countless Oracle, user group, and industry conferences. Its one of the best parts of being a product manager – [...]
