Change Item Position using jQuery

Denes Kubicek - Sun, 2016-02-28 07:51
See this example on how to change the item position. In APEX you can position the buttons after the action bar in an interactive report. However, you can't put the items there. Using jQuery this is easy to achieve.

React on Tab Change

Denes Kubicek - Sun, 2016-02-28 07:47
See this example on how to react on tab change in APEX 5. The problem is to determine the right selector to trigger the corresponding dynamic action. Thanks Christian Rokitta for your help.

Oracle JET Live List with WebSocket

Andrejus Baranovski - Sat, 2016-02-27 19:47
I have updated sample - Oracle JET and WebSocket Integration for Live Data, to include live data list. Along with live updates delivered to the chart component, list component displays changed data. I'm displaying five last changes, with new data appearing in the last row:


Watch recorded demo, each 4 seconds new data arrives and chart is updated, along with list records:


JET list component UI structure (data grid) is rendered with a template, to arrange separate column for each job:


When new data arrives, it is being pushed into JET observable array (this triggers automatic UI list reload/refresh). If there are more than five items in the list, first one is removed. List observable array is configured with 500 ms. delay, to make UI refresh smoother:


Download sample application (JET, WebSocket server side and ADF to simulate updates in the DB) - JETWebSocket_v2.zip.

I'm going to present JET and WebSocket integration on Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum 2016.

A Few of My Favorite Things for Ultimate Productivity with Oracle WebCenter

As an Oracle WebCenter consultant at Fishbowl Solutions, I have a number of tools that I use that keep me happy and productive. Whether or not you are a software developer, these tools can do the same for you and your business.

 

Slack

slack

Unless you’ve been hibernating for the last year or so, you’ve probably heard of Slack. Haven’t adopted it for your business yet? Here’s why you should.

Slack facilitates contextual, transparent and efficient communication for teams. Slack helps organize your communications into “channels.” Working on a project with Fishbowl Solutions on a WebCenter project? Create a Slack channel and centralize your communications. Quickly share files with the entire team, and “Slackers” can give instant feedback. On the go? Slack goes with you via mobile, of course. Slack provides direct messaging and private channels, too.

Even better, Slack lets you integrate dozens of apps, so that you can centralize all of the services you and your team use. Send calendar reminders and events, search for documents, even start a Skype call. Slack is team communication for the 21st century (with custom emojis!).

 

Twitter and Evernote

Evernote

Twitter and Evernote are my number one/two combo punch for staying on top of all things development. Twitter allows me to keep up to date with the latest news and trends in the web development world. I can peruse dozens of articles every day with information I want to store for later use. I save links to the best articles in my Evernote account, which I have organized into different notebooks for various topics. For example, I’m working on a presentation for Collaborate 16 on Oracle JET, Oracle’s new front-end JavaScript framework. Anything interesting I see on Twitter re: Oracle JET goes right into my Evernote notebook. It makes keeping track of news and information a breeze.

 

Trello

trello

Trello is the application for list-making over-achievers (like me). I organize my to-dos into different “boards”, depending on the project. I have a different board for each project I’m working on at Fishbowl. As I think of something I need to do, I can quickly add it to the appropriate to-do column. When I’m busy with a task, I put it in the “doing” column, and then slide it on over to “done” when finished. I can keep up with my task flow, it’s motivating, visually appealing, and goes with me where I go. Trello also allows me to share tables with others for easy collaboration. Oh, and did I mention I can integrate Trello with Slack (insert custom Slack emoji here)?

Toggl

toggl

Toggl is a fantastic little desktop timer tool my colleague Nate Yates introduced to me. We consultants at Fishbowl Solutions need to keep very accurate timing of the hours we spend on different projects. Toggl allows me to input my different projects, and then just click the appropriate button when I start working on it. It keeps track of my time for the week on each project. It makes keeping track of my time simple, so that I can focus most of my time on creating responsive single-page applications for Fishbowl Solutions customers.

Automatic install SOA/BPM QuickStart under Linux

Darwin IT - Fri, 2016-02-26 07:51
Earlier I wrote about the automatic or silent install of JDeveloper. As a preperation for an automatic install of the complete SOASuite I translated this to Linux.

To do so in Linux you'll need to adapt the sudoers file.

Log in als root via het commando
[oracle@darlin-vce-db ~]$ su -
Password:
Last login: Fri Feb 26 06:44:05 EST 2016 on pts/0

Then edit the sudo-ers file:
[root@darlin-vce-db ~]# vi /etc/sudoers
Uncomment the lines for the Cmnd_Alias-es SOFTWARE en SERVICES (remove the hash ’#’ from the start of the lines)
## Installation and management of software
Cmnd_Alias SOFTWARE = /bin/rpm, /usr/bin/up2date, /usr/bin/yum

## Services
Cmnd_Alias SERVICES = /sbin/service, /sbin/chkconfig

Then add the following two lines to the end of the file:
## Extra rights for oracle to do for instance rpm without password.
oracle ALL= NOPASSWD: SERVICES, SOFTWARE
Save the file (use an exclamation-mark in the ‘:wq!’ command, since sudoers is a read-only-file.
I separated the settings for the environment in a seperate file, called 'jdev12c_env.sh', so you can use that before starting JDeveloper later on or to add these settings in your profile:
#!/bin/bash
echo set Jdeveloper BPM Quickstart 12cR2 environment
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_74
export JDEV_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/JDeveloper/12210_BPMQS
export JDEV_USER_HOME_SOA=/home/oracle/JDeveloper/SOA
export JDEV_USER_DIR_SOA=/home/oracle/JDeveloper/SOA
I adapted the response file because of a different ORACLE_HOME path under Linux and renamed it to 'bpmqs1221_silentInstall-lnx.rsp':
[ENGINE]

#DO NOT CHANGE THIS.
Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0

[GENERIC]

#Set this to true if you wish to skip software updates
DECLINE_AUTO_UPDATES=true

#
MOS_USERNAME=

#
MOS_PASSWORD=

#If the Software updates are already downloaded and available on your local system, then specify the path to the directory where these patches are available and set SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION to true
AUTO_UPDATES_LOCATION=

#
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_SERVER=

#
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_PORT=

#
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_USER=

#
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_PASSWORD=

#The oracle home location. This can be an existing Oracle Home or a new Oracle Home
ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/JDeveloper/12210_BPMQS

As an extra I also created an start script called 'jdev12c.sh':
#!/bin/bash
. $PWD/jdev12c_env.sh
echo start Jdeveloper BPM Quickstart 12cR2
$JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev

The actual install script is as
#!/bin/bash
. $PWD/jdev12c_env.sh
echo JAVA_HOME=$JAVA_HOME
if [ ! -d "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
# Install jdk
echo Install jdk 1.8
sudo rpm -ihv ./jdk-8u74-linux-x64.rpm
else
echo jdk 1.8 already installed
fi
# Install BPM QS
if [ ! -d "$JDEV_HOME" ]; then
# Install JDeveloper BPM QuickStart
echo Install JDeveloper BPM QuickStart 12cR2
$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar fmw_12.2.1.0.0_bpm_quickstart.jar -silent -responseFile $PWD/bpmqs1221_silentInstall-lnx.rsp
else
echo JDeveloper BPM QuickStart 12cR2 already installed
fi
echo copy jdev.boot naar $JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin
mv $JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev.boot $JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev.boot.org
cp $PWD/jdev.boot $JDEV_HOME/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/
echo copy JDeveloper BPM QuickStart 12cR2 environment and start scripts to ~/bin
cp $PWD/jdev12c_env.sh ~/bin
cp $PWD/jdev12c.sh ~/bin

As described in the Windows variant of this install this script copies an adapted version of the jdev.boot file to use the JDEV_USER_HOME_SOA and JDEV_USER_DIR_SOA environment variables as set in the jdev12c_env.sh. Also it copies the jdev12c_env.sh and jdev12c.sh scripts to the ~/bin folder (user home dir), so after install you're good to go by running the jdev12c.sh script for starting JDeveloper.

Reblogged: Providing A Persistent Data Volume to EMC XtremIO Using ClusterHQ Flocker, Docker And Marathon

Kevin Closson - Thu, 2016-02-25 15:53

I don’t reblog very often–if ever. However, this blog post from EMC’s Itzik Reich is a jewel. If you are like everyone else in IT and are starting to take an interest in Docker I recommend viewing Itzik’s post!

Itzikr's Blog

Hi,

Containers are huge, that’s not a secret to anyone in the IT industry, customers are testing the waters and looking for many ways to utilize containers technologies, it is also not a secret that the leading vendor in this technology is docker.

But docker itself isn’t perfect yet, while it’s as trendy as trendy can get, there are many ways around the docker runtime to provide cluster management etc’..

It all started with a customer request some weeks ago, their request was “can you show us how do you integrate with docker, Marathon (to provide containers orchestration) and ClusterHQ Flocker to provide a persistent data volume..sounds easy right? J

Wait a second, isn’t containers technologies supposed to be completely lossless, designed to fail and do not need any persistent data that will survive a failure in case a container dies??

Well, that’s exactly where customers are asking things that…

Reporting in PeopleSoft Without Crystal Reports

PeopleSoft Technology Blog - Thu, 2016-02-25 14:40

As you’ve probably heard, PeopleTools 8.55 will not support the use of the Crystal Reports product with PeopleSoft. (Click here for more information).  Most of you know that we’ve been talking for years about ways to move away from Crystal Reports.  The obvious alternative has been to migrate your reports to Oracle BI Publisher.  I’m writing this post to help you understand that you have other options, and that we think that in many cases, there is an even better solution that will give your users more relevant and timely information.

Conventional reporting tools are used to create and publish static reports.  That is, they query the database and present information as a snapshot in time.  One of the problems with this approach is that important data can become instantly stale and not secure. 

Contemporary reporting is changing, however, and we feel that customers should re-evaluate how they can take advantage of some of the new reporting and analytic capabilities that PeopleSoft offers.  New options exist that help make reporting a strategic part of enterprise business processes.  In fact, you can easily incorporate business intelligence and real-time analytics directly into business process flows as an integral part of the application user experience. 

Using this more modern approach, designers are able to provide users relevant information directly in context of related business activities.  In this way, the user doesn’t have to “look up” information or pull up a report.  Instead, the application system provides the information directly on the page, or as part of a process, which leads to better decisions.  With modern PeopleSoft reporting capabilities, the data is fresh and secure because it never actually leaves the system. 

Take this approach to decide whether you need to replicate every one of your static reports from Crystal Reports in BI Publisher.  We believe that many older, static reports can be repurposed as online, real-time analytics rather than simply rewritten in a new reporting tool.

Chief among these exciting PeopleSoft reporting capabilities are the new Simplified Analytics and updated Pivot Grids.  These new features enable users to produce analytics and reports right in the context of their transactions, providing more agile and powerful analytics that result in better decision support.  In addition, these new reporting tools are easy to use and put power in the hands of end users and business experts.  Functional users won't have to rely on technical professionals to generate the reports they need.  With these tools, data can be sliced and diced as required, as well visualized in different ways to gain greater understanding of the information presented.

PeopleSoft applications teams will also be delivering new reports and analytics using these tools, so customers will get many new reports as they continue to take new application images.  Again, this means even fewer Crystal reports that need to be recreated.

Of course enterprises will still need conventional reports for things like Period Close and other regulatory reporting.  In those cases, customers can indeed convert old Crystal Reports into BI Publisher reports.  However, we believe that after thoughtful analysis, the number of such reports that need conversion into traditional formats and uses will be much smaller than you may have originally anticipated, and that most business needs will be better served with newer tools for producing on-line, real-time, business analytics.

First Steps with Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service

Shay Shmeltzer - Wed, 2016-02-24 19:22

Last week we released a new cloud service - the Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.

(I'll refer to is as ABCS here to keep it short).

ABCS is built for the non-professional developer, what some call the citizen developer, giving them a solution to very quickly build and publish applications that can address immediate business needs. As you'll see in the demo below, a UI first approach makes development very simple.

I recorded a quick demo to show you just the basics of app development and wet your appetite.

As you'll see ABCS makes it dead simple to create Web apps, define business objects that you want to track (implemented as tables in an Oracle cloud database instance), and fine tune the UI creating multiple forms. The underlying UI technology of both ABCS and the apps that it creates is Oracle JET. 

Note that in this video I didn't cover the steps to actually stage and then publish your application so other users can access it - another thing that ABCS makes simple. On these and other capabilities in future blogs...

Bundle Patch 3 Now Available for Application Management Pack 12.1.0.4

Steven Chan - Tue, 2016-02-23 14:53

Application Management Pack (AMP) 12.1.0.4.0 for Oracle E-Business Suite was released in June 2015. We have just released the third set of updates for AMP 12.1.0.4.0. These updates include enhancements as well as fixes for stability and performance issues.

We strongly recommend that you apply Bundle Patch 3 to your E-Business Suite environments and your Enterprise Manager server:

What's New in Bundle Patch 3?

  • Discover and monitor Oracle E-Business Suite targets hosted on Oracle Cloud.
  • Support is now enabled for discovering multiple instances with the same SID.
  • The naming convention of the Oracle E-Business Suite targets is changed. It no longer uses the DB SID as a prefix. The Database target name is used instead, which is passed for discovery.
  • The DB target name, which is passed to the EBS target discovery, can only contain alphanumeric characters and period ('.').
  • For a successful discovery, the preferred credentials must now be set for the host where the admin server is running. On Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 or later, the preferred credentials setup must be completed on both the patch and run file system admin servers. If not, pre-validation will fail.
  • Host aliasing is now automated and will attempt to match the host name in the EBS context file and the discovered host name in Oracle Enterprise Manager. If this attempt fails, you will be prompted to perform the mapping manually.
  • Customization Manager and Patch Manager now support host aliasing.
