Interesting beginning to OpenWorld/JavaOne yesterday. I had the chance to visit with Brendan Tierney and he gave me a copy of his new Oracle R Enterprise: Harnessing the Power of R in Oracle Database, which I went through quickly last night. It looks well written and I liked the examples. Brendan also gave me a […]

Oracle EBS 12.2 & Ruby
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 17:50:05 +0000
As does seem to occur from time-to-time, I’m out there in the weeds again and sorting out a solution that fits a customer’s need. They wanted to know if they could write Oracle EBS 12.2 Concurrent Manager Programs in Ruby. They don’t want to write Java. I checked the documentation, which as is too common, […]

Tue, 31 May 2016 08:44:59 +0000
Installing any Oracle database is tedious, but the installing the prerequisites can be especially tedious. This post tries to simplify the process by creating a single prereq.sh file for all the prerequisite libraries, except for the oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall, which you should run after the prerequisite file. The prerequisite file should contain the following: yum install -y […]

Linux User-Group Console

This post shows you how to add the menu option and GUI to set users and groups. It’s quite a bit easier than mastering all the command-line syntax. It makes setting up the required user and group accounts for an Oracle Enterprise or MySQL database solution much easier. You add the utility by calling the […]
