Got Oracle? Better Manage Your Licenses!


There's actually quite a bit of information on the internet about the complexity in managing the technology licenses you purchase (and don't purchase) from Oracle.  This has been a problem for many versions, and is still a problem in the current version.

Help Please! The UKOUG Partner of the Year awards

We’d really appreciate your help. But first, a bit of background:

The Partner of the Year awards is an annual awards ceremony held by the UK Oracle User Group. It allows customers to show appreciation for partners that have provided a service to them over the previous 12 months. As you would imagine, being voted a winner (for the categories that you operate in) is a wonderful accolade as it’s the end-users that have spoken.

An Introduction to PeopleTools 8.54 (part 2)

1. Introduction

The recently launched version of PeopleTools 8.54 contains a broad range of enhancements. Although we’ve had the GA (General Availability) release we can’t upgrade existing environments until the 8.54.02 patch, so now is a good time to perform a fresh sandbox install to investigate the details and highlight the areas that are of most interest.

"Private" App Class Members

I was reading Lee Greffin's post More Fun with Application Packages -- Instances and stumbled across this quote from PeopleBooks:

A private instance variable is private to the class, not just to the object instance. For example, consider a linked-list class where one instance needs to update the pointer in another instance.

What exactly does that mean? I did some testing to try and figure it out. Here is what I came up with:

List of PeopleSoft Blogs

It has been amazing to watch the exponential growth in the number of PeopleSoft community bloggers. It seems that most of them have links to other PeopleSoft blogs, but where is the master list of PeopleSoft blogs? Here is my attempt to create one. Don't see your blog on the list? Add a comment and I'll review your blog. If your blog is education oriented, then I will put it in the list... and probably delete your comment (that way you don't have to feel awkward about self promotion).

Unlimited Session Timeout

There are a lot of security admins out there that are going to hate me for this post. There are a lot of system administrators, developers, and users, however, that will LOVE me for this post. The code I'm about to share with you will keep the logged in PeopleSoft user's session active as long as the user has a browser window open that points to a PeopleSoft instance. Why would you do this? I can think of two reasons:

IoT – Embracing the Internet of Our Times

Over a decade back the telecommunication industry forever changed the way of “Connecting People” through the use of mobile devices. Today, in a world of digital natives, mobile phones are not a want but a need. Let me put that in perspective; there are nearly 6 billion mobile devices in the world which is a [...]

PeopleCode Coding Discipline

Java, JavaScript, C++, C Sharp, Objective C, Groovy... what do these languages have in common? Yes, curly braces, but besides that... actually, there are a lot of similarities between these languages. Throw Visual Basic, Perl, Python, or any other well-known language into the mix and the number of similarities drops significantly. Setting semantics and syntax aside, a common attribute of all well-known languages is standards and best practices. Some of those best practices (such as coding style) differ by language. For example, bash scripts can either look like, uh...

PeopleTools 8.54 Released

I see that PeopleTools 8.54 is released according to the PeopleSoft Technology Blog.  I’m eager to get digging into the new features, but I’m afraid it may be a while before I get to play with it.
Currently, it looks like you won’t be able to play with it unless you can go through a full install.  Upgrades are not supported until after a patch or two is released:
