My Nomination for the Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards

Wed, 2015-09-16 23:30
Actually this came as a wonderful surprise ... I have been nominated for the Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards: . I have basically devoted my entire work life to build solutions based on Oracle technology ... and you can build some pretty cool stuff with it. I have always enjoyed building software that makes a difference ... and even more so share to what I have learned and support and inspire others to do the same. The people in the Oracle community are simply amazing and I have made a lot of friends there. If you have an account for the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) I would appreciate your vote ! And if you don't feel like voting for me ... vote anyway in all the different categories ... because the Oracle community deserves the attention. Thanks, ~Dietmar.

Presentation slides for my ORDS talk at KScope 2015

Tue, 2015-09-15 11:48
Hi guys,

in June I gave a talk at the ODTUG KScope conference regarding the optimal setup of Oracle ORDS for Oracle Application Express: Setting Up the Oracle APEX Listener (Now ORDS) for Production Environments

You can access the slides certainly through the ODTUG site. They have even recorded the presentation and made it available to their members.

This seems to be a good investment for $99 per year for a paid membership, because now you also have access to the other content from the ODTUG conferences. I am not affiliated with ODTUG but all I can say is that the KScope conference is the best place for an Oracle developer to learn and connect with the best folks in the industry.

For everybody else who is not (yet) an ODTUG member you can download my slides and the config file here:

Cheers and all the best,

P.S.: The configuration is based on the version 3.0.0 of ORDS. You should definitely move to 3.0.1 which is currently available.

But on the other hand I was once again thrown of by another problem with version 3.0.1 running the schema creation scripts for the ORDS schema users (ords_metadata and ords_public_user) .

Thus I have come to the conclusion it is best to do it step by step, the database users have to be created first. You can extract the installation scripts from the ords.war just as well:
