Case Insensitivity with JSON and Oracle 12c?

About a week ago, I was presenting at ECO on JSON parsing in the Oracle 12c Database and an attendee asked a great question. To summarize, Maria Colgan gave a keynote in which she noted a feature in 12c that allows you to define a column as Case Insensitive. The attendee in my session asked if …

ODC Appreciation Day : SQL Developer

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but there have been a few changes in Oracle’s advocacy community. The Oracle Technology Network has been rebranded as The Oracle Developer Community (ODC), and the Oracle ACE and Java Champions have a new baby sibling, called the Developer Champion.

Microservices PoC: Docker Calculator build with docker-compose

Hopefully you have been following my Docker exploits allowing me to share as I go along. Recently I posted a part two on my Microservices PoC describing a simple calculator. The solution currently instructs to you to execute four (4) docker build commands to create the individual containers for the calculator function. When I did …

Microservices PoC: A Docker Calculator Pt.2

In my previous Microservices PoC post, I attempted to use a calculator to conceptualize microservices. The premise was to look at the calculator as a monolithic application and then break it down into discrete services. The focus was on the Add, Subtract, Multiply, and Divide functions and deploying them in separate docker containers thus creating …

Install SQL Developer on Ubuntu 17.04

Last week I decided to blow away Windows on my ASUS laptop and install a flavor of #Linux. I’ve got a few machines running Oracle Linux so I settled on #Ubuntu. To be more specific: dbryant@asus:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 17.04 Release: 17.04 Codename: zesty As a …

Microservices PoC: A Docker Calculator

This example will explore building a simple container that has one specific  function. I’ll then extend this concept to a bit to add additional containers in an effort to build a basic calculator that can add, subtract, divide, and multiply. The current rendition will execute from the command line. Given enough time, we can REST …

MongoDB Docker Oracle Linux Slim

Working for a consulting firm, I have the opportunity to occasionally explore technologies that don’t quite align with my focus area(s). I started looking at MongoDB, and over the last couple of weeks, I’ve found it to be quite fun. This post will focus on my intro to MongoDB and hopefully will result in a …

Deploy node-oracledb with Official Instant Client Image

A few days ago, I started building a PoC with the Oracle DB 12.1 and Oracle Instant Client. My goal was to deploy each component to separate and see if I could access the DB from the OIC container. Now to take it a step further. Adding the node-oracledb driver to enable Node.js interaction with …

Clean up qcow2 in Docker on MacBook

I really enjoy figuring out stuff to do with DOCKER, but I recently tweeted the following: Why you ask? Well, there is this file, Docker.qcow2 located right here: ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/Docker.qcow2 on my MacBook Pro that consumes all of the remaining space I have on my hard drive, and SSD’s ain’t cheap.  I’m sure I need to …
