Switchover and Switchback simplified in Oracle 12c

Syed Jaffar - Fri, 2017-10-13 07:51


Business continuity (Disaster Recovery) has become a very critical factor for every business, especially in the financial sectors. Most of the banks are tending to have their regular DR test to meet the central bank regulation on DR testing capabilities.

Very recently, there was a request from one of the clients to perform a reverse replication and rollback (i.,e switchover & switchback) between the HO and DR for one of the business critical databases. Similar activities performed with easy on pre 12c databases. However, this was my first experience with Oracle 12c. After spending a bit of time to explore whats new in 12c Switchover, it was amazing to learn how 12c simplified the procedure. So, I decided to write a post on my experience.

This post demonstrates how Switchover and Switchback procedure is simplified in Oracle 12c.

The following is used in the scenario:

·        2 instances Oracle 12c RAC primary database (IMMPRD)
·        Single instance Oracle 12c RAC Standby database (IMMSDB)

Look at the current status of the both databases:
-- Primary
IMMPRD> select status,instance_name,database_role from v$database,v$instance;

STATUS       INSTANCE_NAME    DATABASE_ROLE
------------ ---------------- ----------------
OPEN         IMMPRD1           PRIMARY

-- Standby
IMMSDB> select status,instance_name,database_role from v$database,v$instance;

STATUS       INSTANCE_NAME    DATABASE_ROLE
------------ ---------------- ----------------
OPEN         IMMSDB1           PHYSICAL STANDBY

Before getting into the real action, validate the following to avoid any failures during the course of role transition:

·        Ensure log_archive_dest_2 is configured on PRIMARY and STANDBY databases
·        Media Recovery Process (MRP) is active on STANDBY and in sync with PRIMARY database
·        Create STANDBY REDO logs on PRIMARY, if not exists
·        FAL_CLIENT & FAL_SERVER parameters set on both databases
·        Verify TEMP tablespaces on STANDBY, add them if required, as TEMPFFILES created after STANDBY creation won’t be propagated to STANDBY site.

Pre-Switchover in 12c

For a smooth role transition, it is important to have everything in-place and in sync. Pre-Oracle 12c, a set of commands used on PRIMARY and STANDBY to validate the readiness of the systems. However, with Oracle 12c, this is simplified with the ALTER DATABASE SWITCHOVER VERIFY command. The command performs the following set of actions:

·        Verifies minimum Oracle version, i.e, Oracle 12.1
·        PRIMRY DB REDO SHIPPING
·        Verify MRP status on Standby database

Let’s run the command on the primary database to validate if the environments are ready for the role transition.

IMMPRD>  alter database switchover to IMMSDB verify;
 alter database switchover to IMSDB verify
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-16475: succeeded with warnings, check alert log for more details

When the command is executed, an ORA-16475 error was encountered. For more details, lets walk through the PRIMARY and STANDBY databases alert.log file, and pay attention to the SWITCHOVER VERIFY WARNING.

--primary database alert.log

Fri Oct 13 11:16:00 2017

ORA-16475 signalled during:  alter database switchover to IMSDB verify...

The LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 parameter was not set on the STANDBY database and the VERIFY command produced the warning. After setting the parameter on the STANDBY, the verify command was re-ran, and it went well this time.

IMMPRD> alter database switchover to IMMSDB verify;

Switchover in 12c 

After successful validation and confirmation about the DBs readiness for the role transition, execute the actual switchover command on the primary database. (advised to view the alert.log files of PRIMARY and STANDBY instances).

IMMPRD> alter database switchover to IMMSDB;

Database altered.

Let’s walk through the PRIMARY and STANDBY database alert.log files to review what Oracle has internally done.

At this point-in-time, the new PRIMARY database is in MOUNT state, so you need to OPEN the database.

IMMSDB> alter database open

And startup the STANDBY database and enable MRP: (below is the active standby database command)

IMMPRD> startup
IMMPRD> recover managed standby database using current logfile disconnect from session;

Post Switchover, run through the following:

IMMSDB> alter system switch logfile;

IMMSDB> select dest_id,error,status from v$archive_dest where dest_id=2;

IMMSDB> select max(sequence#),thread# from v$log_history group by thread#;
IMMSDB> select max(sequence#)  from v$archived_log where applied='YES' and
dest_id=2;

On Standby database

IMMPRD> select thread#,sequence#,process,status from gv$managed_standby;
-- in 12.2, use gv$dataguard_status instead of gv$managed_standby view

IMMPRD> select max(sequence#),thread# from v$archived_log group by thread#;

You can also enable the trace on primary and standby before performing the role transition to analyze any failures during the procedure. Use the below procedure on the PRIMARY database to enable the tracing:

SQL> alter system set log_archive_trace=8191;  -- enabling trace

SQL> alter system set log_archive_trace=0;      -- disabling trace

Switchback

To revert (switch back) to the previous situation, perform the same action. Remember, now, your primary is your previous STANDBY and standby is previous PRIMARY.

Oracle SOA Suite developer IDE: Jdeveloper 12c (download & installation)

Dietrich Schroff - Thu, 2017-10-12 15:40
After installing an Oracle 12c database onto an Oracle Linux i want to run Oracle's SOA Suite. But before the installation of SOA Suite 12c including the application server, i decided to download Jdeveloper to get a first impression of BPEL processes in version 12c (several years ago i did some projects with Oracel Fusion and Oracle SOA Suite 11g).

First try, to get Jdeveloper with SOA Suite extensions (skip these 4 steps - because this attempt misses the SOA Suite...):
  1. You have to download two files:
    -rw-rw-r-- 1   432104829 Okt  7 21:40 jdev_suite_122130_linux64-2.zip
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 2045438518 Okt  7 21:51 jdev_suite_122130_linux64.bin
  2. chmod u+x jdev_suite_122130_linux64.bin
  3. ./jdev_suite_122130_linux64.bin
  4. Start Jdeveloper:
    /home/data/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev




But after all this steps, still the SOA Suite is missing.
At the download site of Jdeveloper you will even not find a word about SOA Suite. Hmmm. Let's take a look at the SOA Suite webpages:

 "... it includes ... Oracle JDeveloper with SOA IDE extensions ...."

OK. Let's go:


  1. Download the SOA Suite quickstart zip files
  2. Extract them:
    schroff@zerberus:~/Downloads$ unzip fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soaqs_Disk1_1of2.zip
    Archive:  fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soaqs_Disk1_1of2.zip
      inflating: fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soa_quickstart.jar 
    schroff@zerberus:~/Downloads$ unzip fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soaqs_Disk1_2of2.zip
    Archive:  fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soaqs_Disk1_2of2.zip
      inflating: fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soa_quickstart2.jar  
  3. Start the installation:
    /home/data/opt/jdk1.8.0_131/bin/java -jar fmw_12.2.1.0.0_soa_quickstart.jar










  4. Start Jdeveloper:
    /home/data/opt/oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/jdev



That was not as easy as expected...

Identifying Conditional Navigation Content References

Jim Marion - Thu, 2017-10-12 15:30

As PeopleSoft customers upgrade to Fluid-enabled applications, it is quite common to start with Fluid disabled, and then implement Fluid behavior post go-live. It is all about change management and an organization's ability to digest change. Even though Oracle has set retirement dates for certain Classic components, with the first wave retiring December 31, 2017, all Classic functionality is still supposed to be present and available. But if you have opened a recent PeopleSoft image or are in the middle of updating to a recent HCM build, you may be asking, "Where are those delivered and supported Classic components?" If you investigate the portal registry, you will see they exist, they just don't appear in any menus. Many of these menu items, such as the Personal Details menu items, use a feature named Conditional Navigation. PeopleSoft uses Conditional Navigation to conditionally replace Classic menu items with their Fluid counterparts. You can read more about Conditional Navigation in PeopleBooks at PeopleTools PeopleBooks entry Products > Development Tools > Portal Technology > Understanding Conditional Navigation. A question I hear regularly is, "How do I temporarily enable Classic components in my PeopleTools 8.55+ environment?" The first step is to disable Conditional Navigation and the MyOracle Support document 2215964.1 describes how. Armed with this information, you now know what it is, how to configure it, and how to disable it, but how do you find it? I mean, what components are preconfigured for conditional navigation? Since conditional navigation uses CREF attributes, CREF identification requires a small SQL statement:

That is nice, but the portal registry isn't structured that way. Next question: How do I find those CREFs in the portal registry? Here is the longer form SQL statement. Results contain complete paths to conditionally configured items. Those of you that follow my blog may recognize this SQL as a derivative of Query for Component and/or CREF Navigation Take II

JSON manipulation in Java 9 JShell

Amis Blog - Thu, 2017-10-12 09:38

In this article I will demonstrate how we can work with JSON based data – for analysis, exploration, cleansing and processing – in JShell, much like we do in Python. I work with a JSON document with entries for all sessions at the Oracle OpenWorld 2017 conference (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lucasjellema/scrape-oow17/master/oow2017-sessions-catalog.json)

The Java 9 SE specification for the JDK does not contain the JSON-P API and libraries for processing JSON. In order to work with JSON-P in JShell, we need to add the libraries – that we first need to find and download.

I have used a somewhat roundabout way to get hold of the required jar-files (but it works in a pretty straightforward manner):

1. Create a pom.xml file with dependencies on JSON-P

image

 

image

 

2. Then run

mvn install dependency:copy-dependencies

as described in this article: https://technology.amis.nl/2017/02/09/download-all-directly-and-indirectly-required-jar-files-using-maven-install-dependencycopy-dependencies/

this will download the relevant JAR files to subdirectory target/dependencies

image

3. Copy JAR files to a directory – that can be accessed from within the Docker container that runs JShell – for me that is the local lib directory that is mapped by Vagrant and Docker to /var/www/lib inside the Docker container that runs JShell.

 

4. In the container that runs JShell:

Start JShell with this statement that makes the new httpclient module available, for when the JSON document is retrieved from an HTTP URL resource:

jshell –add-modules jdk.incubator.httpclient

 

5. Update classpath from within jshell

To process JSON in JShell – using JSON-P – we need set the classpath to include the two jar files that were downloaded using Maven.

/env –class-path /var/www/lib/javax.json-1.1.jar:/var/www/lib/javax.json-api-1.1.jar

Then the classes in JSON-P are imported

import javax.json.*;

if we need to retrieve JSON data from a URL resource, we should also

import jdk.incubator.http.*;

 

6. I have made the JSON document available on the file system.

image

It can be accessed as follows:

InputStream input = new FileInputStream(“/var/www/oow2017-sessions-catalog.json”);

 

7. Parse data from file into JSON Document, get the root object and retrieve the array of sessions:

JsonReader jsonReader = Json.createReader(input)

JsonObject rootJSON = jsonReader.readObject();

JsonArray sessions = rootJSON.getJsonArray(“sessions”);

 

8. Filter sessions with the term SQL in the title and print their title to the System output – using Streams:

sessions.stream().map( p -> (JsonObject)p).filter(s ->  s.getString(“title”).contains(“SQL”)) .forEach( s -> {System.out.println(s.getString(“title”));})

image

 

One other example: show a list of all presentations for which a slidedeck has been made available for download along with the download URL:

sessions.stream()

.map( p -> (JsonObject)p)

.filter(s -> s.containsKey(“files”) && !s.isNull(“files”) && !(s.getJsonArray(“files”).isEmpty()))

.forEach( s -> {System.out.println(s.getString(“title”)+” url:”+s.getJsonArray(“files”).getJsonObject(0).getString(“url”));})

 

Bonus: Do HTTP Request

As an aside some steps in jshell to execute an HTTP request:

jshell> HttpClient client = HttpClient.newHttpClient();
client ==> jdk.incubator.http.HttpClientImpl@4d339552

jshell> HttpRequest request = HttpRequest.newBuilder(URI.create(“http://www.google.com”)).GET().build();
request ==> http://www.google.com GET

jshell> HttpResponse response = client.send(request, HttpResponse.BodyHandler.asString())
response ==> jdk.incubator.http.HttpResponseImpl@147ed70f

jshell> System.out.println(response.body())
<HTML><HEAD><meta http-equiv=”content-type” content=”text/html;charset=utf-8″>
<TITLE>302 Moved</TITLE></HEAD><BODY>
<H1>302 Moved</H1>
The document has moved
<A HREF=”http://www.google.nl/?gfe_rd=cr&amp;dcr=0&amp;ei=S2XeWcbPFpah4gTH6Lb4Ag”>here</A>.
</BODY></HTML>

SQL Server Management Studio New Features

Yann Neuhaus - Thu, 2017-10-12 09:24

regularly, Microsoft SQL Server comes up with its new features, and in particular SSMS 2017 17.3

in this post, i present you a new feature : Import flat files

How does it works :

Open SSMS, and right click on a selected database

Photo1

Choose Import Flat File

Photo2

 

Click Next

Photo3

 

Tip the Path of your file to import and the new target table’s name

Photo4

this is an overview of the file content

Click Next

Photo5

As you can see a data type conversion is purposed , click Next

Photo6

 

Click Finish and import task start

Photo7

The import task is complet

Photo8

 

to verify, go to your database and execute a select on the brand new table

 

CONCLUSION:

This is a small tool that will make life easier for us to insert flat files quickly, the only drawback is that you can not insert the data on an existing table, the tool will ask you to create a new table.

Oracle Utilities, Navigant Research Unveil Dual Innovation Blueprint Study for Utilities

Oracle Press Releases - Thu, 2017-10-12 06:45
Press Release
Oracle Utilities, Navigant Research Unveil Dual Innovation Blueprint Study for Utilities Utility executives worldwide share innovation best practices

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Oct 12, 2017

Oracle Utilities today unveiled a new research paper, titled ‘Utility Innovation Blueprint: How to Manage the Challenge of Dual Transformation,’ which explores how utilities can approach innovation across their people, processes and technology. Commissioned from Navigant Research, the paper combines short case studies with an action-oriented framework that offers a global perspective from executives interviewed in the United States, Europe, and Asia/Australia, across electric, gas, and water utilities. Participants included executives from Avista, Exelon, National Grid, UK Power Networks, Eesti Energia and Yarra Valley Water.

Historically, utilities have focused on core business objectives around safety, security, reliability and shareholder returns. However, massive disruption is currently occurring within the industry, with the advancement of distributed energy resources, IoT, big data and increasing customer expectations. These factors and more are signaling fundamental changes to business as usual. The new paper explains that simply knowing that disruption is coming is not enough. A blueprint for a new innovation path is required, one that needs to be agile and pragmatic.

The research takes a close look at a Dual Innovation Blueprint, a practice whereby a utility pursues two tracks simultaneously: one focuses on increasing the efficiency and resiliency of the core business, while the second centers around increasing agility to enable the iteration of new business models. 

Innovation Blueprint

While many industries have been faced with similar challenges, the approach detailed in the Navigant Research paper is a platform for innovation specific to the utilities industry, one that encompasses not only technology, but also the people and processes within the utility’s organization. According to the report, utilities looking to address innovation challenges should:

  • Adopt a set of processes that will optimize the success of innovation projects by evaluating accountability by project type, balancing finance with risk, and constantly monitoring progress.
  • Understand which technologies will enable innovation by digitizing then automating, deploying cloud analytics and iterating on new services.
  • Create a culture in which innovation can flourish by securing executive sponsorship, embracing new organizational perspectives and empowering employees.
 

“Changing business culture to incorporate innovation is one of the hardest things to do. Innovation teams must influence the business, but this can be very difficult to achieve. Increased communication around innovation is critical” said Ian Cameron, Head of Innovation, UK Power Networks.

“Utilities are increasingly facing the challenge of how to maintain reliability while simultaneously operating in an agile manner conducive to innovation,” said Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Utilities. “We believe the framework for dual innovation described in this paper provides an actionable model for utilities to respond to disruption.”

The executives interviewed for this research represent 16 utilities on three continents, serving 42 million customers, with 162,000 employees, selling electricity, water and gas.
