Cloud Performance Traning

Next week (Nov 18-22) I’m teaching a 5 day class on Cloud Performance, based on my book Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud. I’ve taught this twice internally, and this will be the first class available publicly. I hope to teach it again, but one never knows, this may be the first and last chance to attend!

Have you Been Missing the 'About This Record' Functionality on the Customer Form...?

Do you have fond memories of the 'Help -> About This Record'  functionality that used to be available in the old Customer form - when it was a form, and not a java html screen?  Back in Release 11i, we had the ability to identify when the customer record had last been updated and by whom.

Oracle Secure Global Desktop (SGD) 5.1

Last week, we released the latest update of Oracle Secure Global Desktop.

Release 5.1 introduces a number of bug fixes and smaller changes but the most interesting one is definitely increased support for html5-based client access. In SGD 5.0 we added support for Apple iPads using Safari to connect to SGD and display your session right inside the browser. The traditional model for SGD is that you connect using a webbrowser to the webtop and applications that are displayed locally using a local client (tta). This client gets installed the first time you connect.
