Comment by “Nuwan Millawitiya” on Oracle Collections: A Definition in Plain English Part 1

Nice Article. It was very helpful to understand the concept of ‘Associative Array’ and how should we code using associative arrays.

Thanks.

Windows 7 – LiveMesh Still Works

I upgraded to Windows 7 today.  All is well in the cloud.  My Live Mesh still works.  I use Live Mesh to keep all of my writings in synch.  I tend to move from machine to machine as my needs change and I like to always have the latest version of my docs available.  This […]

Comment by LewisC on Introduction to Basic SQL, Part 1

tommer,

Until I have a chance to post a new guide, I would suggest getting OracleXE. It installs as an MSI in windows and as an RPM in Linux. Very easy to install (and uninstall).

Oracle 11g 64-Bit on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

An Expert’s Guide to Oracle Technology

Microsoft, after having some server issues on Friday, finally got things fixed on Saturday. I was able to get the Windows 7 ISO downloaded and burned to a DVD. I installed it this morning and started playing with it. This ISO is good until Aug 1, 2009.

I loaded it on my HP laptop: 4GB ram, 250GB hard drive, dual core 64 bit CPU and nvidia GPU. I upgraded … Read the rest!

Finally – An Amazon AWS Management Console

I’ve been waiting for and Amazon built AWS management console for a long time now.  Ironically, it couldn’t come at a worse time.  I’m just about finished my AWS Cloud Computing book and now I have to figure out how to work in the console.
Anyway, this is a great thing for new users.  There are […]

Comment by HelenWei on YOU Should Write a Blog!

Hi, experts, and coders,

I am looking for the groups those discuss the methods and procedures that can make the oracle data extraction and integration at the oracle CRM database interface client section. Please add me to any tools using discussion, such like Visual basic, Java, or SQL server, or Oracle Siebel CRM itself, or any similar applications that will help.

Thanks!

Comment by Enzo on Does Oracle Require a License For a Development Database?

The OTN license specifically says “The programs may be installed on one computer only, and used by one person in the operating environment identified by us.” So if you install Oracle on a server and more than 1 person is using the server to develop, technically you need a license.

But the agreement also says that if you fail to comply with it, Oracle has the right to terminate the agreement and you must then … Read the rest!

Comment by LewisC on Is the EEEPC Netbook Underpowered?

I’m actually ok with the screen size. You didn’t say the model but I am thinking you got the HP Mini which is 8.9 inches. I got the 10.2 inch and I think it really makes a difference.

Mine (with xp) boots in a minute or so.

Comment by sschurig on Is the EEEPC Netbook Underpowered?

Trying some of these Netbooks at a local Dealership I found an HP Netbook Model, which at least for my Preferences had a better keyboard, already came with 2 Gig Memory and Vista Basic (although I’m not sure that’s really a better choice than XP). Built-In HSDPA Modem is the only thing I’m missing – however the 3 USB Modem things I’ve got work without any problem, the thing is sufficiently small to slip in … Read the rest!

A New Open Source Community

If you are into social sites, check out the newest for OSS: Open Source Universe.

I like this because it seems to me that most people in OSS (developers, designers and even users) tend to cluster around projects. I mean, that makes sense when actually working on the project but mixing with other projects (on a regular basis and not just at the occasional conference) makes sense. If there is regular social interaction, I think … Read the rest!

Spending Other People’s Money

Amazon announced a nice new feature for S3. You can now let Amazon charge a third party for the storage they use on your account. The nice thing about this is that if you offer a storage service (say images or documents), you can provide your service and let Amazon bill them directly.

Use Blogger or Install a Blog on Your Own Site?

I was recently asked this question:

Do you find that its beneficial to start a blog on the blogger platform versus installing it on your own site?

My opinion on this has changed in the last few months. I used to think that blogger or wordpress.com were “good enough”. I now think you should host your own blog on your own domain. My only reason for this is the amount of control you have by … Read the rest!
