AT&T Wireless Home Phone (Nothing to do with Oracle Stuff)

Installing SQL Dev 4.0 (JRE 1.6 and JDK 1.7)

I’m in an environment where our 11i version of EBS (I know we need to upgrade) still requires JRE 1.6 to open Oracle Forms.  Being an SQL Developer fan (listen to my podcast here), I decided to download and install SQL Dev 4.0.  Anyone that’s been following this knows that the latest release requires JDK …

Then I remember reading that the Pluggable Databases don’t open automatically when the database services are started.  Well that sucks because now I …

Virtual Columns, Table Export, and Forums: A Love Hate Relationship (SQL Error: ORA-54013: INSERT operation disallowed on virtual columns)

Ok, so kind of a weird title, but let me explain. I believe that when you post to a forum, you are either seeking knowledge or sharing it.  I was on the SQLDev forum a few days ago, and someone posted what can be perceived as an error when exporting a table. Here is what …

Hyperion Implementation is Difficult

You would not believe the number of times I’ve heard that.  Every conference and product demo I went to.  This was a common sentiment.  To be honest, it is, but not impossible.  By following some simple yet important considerations, you can have a successful Hyperion implementation.

Oracle Open World 2013 – Wrap up (#OOW13)

So if you know anything about me, you will know that I am always amp’d up when it’s time for Oracle Open World.  This year was quite a different experience for me.  In previous years, I found myself running all across the Conference Complex attending session after session.  This year however, I took a different …
