Avoiding and resetting expired passwords in Oracle databases

Doing a default database installation will install a feature that all passwords will expire after 180 days.
Not being aware of that can cause problems in applications as they cannot connect to the database after that time period.

That will mean that there is no real need that passwords should expire automatically.

I recently read Shusaku Endo's Silence, a remarkable work, dwelling on the theme of abandonment in the context of the extirpation of Kakure Kirishitan communities in Tokagawa Japan.

Why Oracle Big Data SQL Potentially Solves a Big Issue with Hadoop Security

Oracle announced their Big Data SQL product a couple of weeks ago, which effectively extends Exadata’s query-offloading to Hadoop data sources. I covered the launch a few days afterwards, focusing on how it implements Exadata’s SmartScan on Hive and NoSQL data sources and provides a single metadata catalog over both relational, and Hadoop, data sources.
