Heart Walk at Oracle HQ

Tomorrow Oracle is hosting a Bay Area Heart Walk at it’s HQ campus and it should be a huge event, not only raising valuable funds but also raising awareness of the importance of a heart healthy lifestyle.  Since the beginning of this year I have been doing regular walking meetings and have enjoyed the benefits to both my health and my productivity.

ACFS-9459: ASVM/ACFS is not supported on this os version

After installing the Grid Infrastructure (GI) home on two Node RAC 11gR2 (11.2.0.4) on Linux 6.5 servers, I tried to create the ACFS filesystem using ASMCA tool to have Oracle (RDBMS) Home.

Handling Format for BigDecimal Numbers in ADF BC

This may not be as straightforward as it sounds - to define a format for a number attribute in ADF BC. Especially if you are going to have large number (more than 15 digits). Most likely you are going to experience precision/scale and rounding issues, for BigDecimal and Number type attributes with format mask applied. Sounds frustrating? Yes it is.

New Functionality - Invoice Approval Parallel Processing

Invoice approval workflow now supports parallelization at the invoice header level on 12.1.x and 12.2.x.

given level to progress through its notification-approval cycle
asynchronously.

Oracle Addresses Competitor FUD

When talking to customers and partners in the Oracle Siebel CRM realm, a lot of discussions soon reach the point of having to address some fears, uncertainties and doubts (FUD) about Oracle's direction and support for the CRM system we all know and love.

Recently, Oracle has added some interesting public documents to their official Oracle.com Siebel Page in addition to webcasts and videos.

Simple Solutions Do Not Equal Easy Builds

Am I the only one that often tries to make solutions far more difficult than needed?  My first approach to any challenge is likely the most complicated thing I could create.  For example, I was working on something with Oracle Apex last week.  Came up with what I thought was a nifty new feature and started building.  After the equivalent of several hundred lines of code, I had something that worked...just not as well as I hoped.
