Using MySQL Workbench
Thu, 25 Sep 2014 23:10:02 +0000
I’ve been setting up a simplified lab environment to let my students learn use in class. This added content will show them how to do reverse engineering with MySQL Workbench. It’s a complete Fedora image with MySQL and Oracle Database 11g for the course. The uncompressed image is 14GB and the compressed image is 5.3GB. […]

Somebody asked how to put PostgreSQL on my Fedora image with Oracle Database 11g and MySQL. It’s fairly simple.

Add Color to VIM?

MySQL Workbench on Fedora
Sat, 13 Sep 2014 06:00:27 +0000
The early release of Fedora 20 disallowed installation of MySQL Workbench but the current version allows it. Almost like Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow without the drama. All you need to do is follow my earlier instructions for installing MySQL on Fedora 20. I’d check your kernel to know whether it’s supported. You can check […]

E-Business Customers
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 17:25:36 +0000
It seems the Oracle E-Business Suite stymies newbies. Naturally, it’s complex and requires some research before you try to develop any customization. Having recently fielded a question about how to manage, search, create and update customers for a third party order entry system, I’m always surprised by how little people know about Oracle’s Trading Community […]

Wrapping SQL*Plus
Thu, 21 Aug 2014 00:58:55 +0000
One annoying thing from installing Oracle Database 11g on Fedora, was that the up arrows for command history didn’t work. I decided to fix that today after seeing Lutz Hartmann’s article on rlwrap. Unfortunately, the epel (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) package he recommended doesn’t run on Fedora 20. You can read my tale of […]
