I recently had a colleague ask me for assistance on extracting particular pieces of data from an HTML CLOB stored in a database. The data represents some of the content from one of our wiki sites and he was trying to generate a report on some of that data.

The inimitable Bruno Borges picked up tweet earlier today commenting on a problem using @Produces with non-CDI libraries with WebLogic Server 12.1.3.
The tweeter put his example up on a github repository to share - quite a nice example of using JAX-RS, CDI integration and of using Arquillian to verify it works correctly. Ticked a couple of boxes for what I've been looking at lately
Forking his project to have a look at it locally:
The main new feature is the simplified interface even though it is not really new as it first appeared in 18.104.22.168.500 and was aimed purely at accessing the interface through a tablet which I blogged about here.
The call for papers for the Rittman Mead BI Forum 2015 closed a couple of weeks ago and we’ve had some excellent submissions on topics ranging from OBIEE, Visualizations and data discovery through to in-memory analytics, cloud, big data and data integration.
