Oracle open world day 4 - final

Keynote device embedded intellegence - internet of things, funny stuff about sensors on cows, intellegent sensors, analytics.

Adf architecture - most stuff found on architecture site (

Adf scalability - opss cache, mds configuration, jrockit mission control,, cdn, coherence. A team has some interesting ideas but one hour is not enough to go into detail.

Feet are now officially sore and if I hear internet of things, big data or cloud again it will be too soon. All in all a good conference learned some stuff met some people.

Oracle open world 2013 - day 3

Keynote - modern customer experience to start off my day.

ADF fusion architecture manage the modular approach - a bit of information overload on this one but good ideas never the less. Take home fact use artifactory again.

Real world adf implementations - wow talk of the day TIA the Danish company did a forms migration in a year very impressive (had help from AMIS) still good though. The german guy from BA just wow one of the most impressive systems I have seen. Approached in exactly the way I think adf should be used  he spoke of the industrilization of software and a framework on top of ADF great. Then the Aussies doing mobile Colab really impressive set of technologies and challenges security using saml. Really great stuff  all around

BI publisher - nice overview I really need to do more with our implementation.
Hacking your way to a better application - good ideas but mostly a basic overview

Oracle open world day 2

Went to the hcm keynote On mobile and social for two reasons - one I find that the fusion apps stuff gives us a good view on what new features we will get in adf and webcenter also it gives you a good idea in what end users want in an application. What I saw was really impressive the mobile interface is slick and feature rich. Also I have a history with hcm applications so it was good.

Then it was on to a user panel on webcenter content the panel of guests where kind of new to content(one only went into production this month) so it was kind of basic but good. The customer feedback dos and donts could not have more rich.

The I attended a talk by Sten Vesterli of scott tiger - a very good basics talk on 10 "secrets" of a sucessful adf project. If you are not following these rules you should be. But again very basic.
1. Catalog what components you use and how
2. Under promise over deliver
3. Use poc
4. Package
5. Extend
6. Get and use a wiki
7. Nutcracker this is a dev role some who cracks the hard problems
8. Version control make sure you have vc ci ant maven
10.  Logging use the inbuilt adf logger

I then skipped the cloud keynote to talk to some of the vendors and see a couple of demos. Very cool stuff coming soon on the fmw platform.
Fast scalable fusion middleware applications - good informative presentation taught me something and reminded me other tuning opportunities. 

There is a jsp timeout parameter
Set initial cacity to 0 db pool
Llr reduce load for 2 phase commit
Databsae statistics always check and tune
Gridlink data source
If using Oracle db driver switch weblogic cache off
Parallel muxer -Dweblogic.SocketReaders
Fusion application
Chunk pool

Oracle open world 2013 : Day 1

So far so good made it to San Francisco alive will post some feedback on sessions here

Keynote on big data : good ideas hadoop nosql integration. Data is our future. Very Cloudy.

Not a good start to the Web Center overview few technical presentation problems, turn out not too bad in the end. Adaptive design and enhanced search. Sites looks good on the new version. Form factor really...

Oracle ADF Applications in Multiple Layers - best presentation of the day in my opinion focussed on MDS very informative made me realize a post of the mysteries of mds is long overdue.

Simplifying Architecture the Restful way - Going to be good when we are on 12c release and this is available.

Solaris App performance on Solaris - good tips here on mainly focussed on C++ dev.
