New release of the ADF EMG Audit Rules

There is a new release of the ADF EMG Audit Rules extension. With this release there is now support for both JDeveloper11R1 and JDeveloper12c. However, remember that JDeverlop11g does not support the suppression of violations, so this may lead to a lot of violation on existing projects.Remember that you can define a custom profile in the Audit tab under preferences to unselect certain rules, but off course it is better to look at the warnings and see if you can fix them.

Doxxy 1.2 has been released

Today we have great news for you: Docufy becomes Doxxy !
And not only the name improved!

Doxxy is a RAD-tool for generating operational reports. With its intuitive APEX UI, you easily configure your documents by adding DOCX-templates and SQL-queries. The engine is written in PL/SQL, which makes installation, integration and maintenance very straight forward. The tool comes as a packaged application for APEX 4.x.

The main concepts and principles are still the same:

Previewing Three Oracle Data Visualization Sessions at the Atlanta US BI Forum 2014

Many of the sessions at the UK and US Rittman Mead BI Forum 2014 events in May focus on the back-end of BI and data warehousing, with for example Chris Jenkins’ session on TimesTen giving us some tips and tricks from TimeTen product development, and Wayne Van Sluys’s session on Essbase looking at what’s involved in Essbase database optimisation (full agendas for the two events can be found here).

I recently participated in a week long charity bike ride called Cycle4Sam, where funds are raised to support the palliative care unit at the Women and Children's Hospital of South Australia.

Abyssinian: Jazz at Lincoln Center Full Concert

It's my opinion that the pinnacle of artistic contribution from the American experience is found in Jazz (proof that art and suffering go hand in hand?). And I remain convinced that one of the most important exponents of Jazz as not just "high art" but truly great art is Wynton Marsalis.

Check out this Jazz-meets-Gospel concert in full. A uniquely American synthesis; uniquely wonderful.



And so it goes

Between just being flat out busy and frankly finding Twitter a much lazier way to share basic information, this blog has been dormant for too long. In May, it will get a lot more attention - too much is going on in the Big Data space and Hadoop area more specifically to keep so quiet about it. Time to speak up a bit...

Identity Propagation from OAG to REST APIs protected by OWSM

Introduction


This post describes the necessary configuration for propagating an end user identity from OAG (Oracle API Gateway) to REST APIs protected by OWSM (Oracle Web Services Manager).
The requirements are:

1) Have a Java Subject established in the REST API implementation.
2) Prevent direct access to the REST API, i.e., only OAG should be able to successfully invoke it.

A recurrent question is how OWSM protects REST APIs and which types of tokens it supports when doing so.
