Oracle Fusion Middleware provisiong is always a critical prerequisite which will substantially influence the success or failure of our development projects. Those of us who have spent many years working with this toolset in its many versions, should know for sure what a distressful experience it is to work with sloppily or incorrectly provisioned environments.

Using Queues with Delivery Failure

Some days ago I realized that when a message is created through the Admin Console the Queue parameters set to use an Error Destination do not override the message’s parameters, it made me lose time because I thought that my application had a problem. However, the problem was caused because the “Redelivery Limit” set on the message by the Admin Console was no overwritten by the “Redelivery Limit” set in the Queue.

OSB Patching

We have some customers which only use OSB - and not SOA Suite. When you want to patch - should you look only at WLS and OSB-patches? The answer is no.

Ansible is an automation tool that is recognized for be simple and powerful at the same time. From my experience, I can say this is mainly because of its scripting language: YAML, and its agentless architecture.

OUGN 2016

Once more the OUGN conference was a great success - with 310 people on the cruise from Oslo to Kiel. Also this year with great content from Norway and the rest of the world. I have been part of the Board planning the conference, and for every year we feel we have made improvements. Some have been on the boat for many years - and many have heard about OUGN and want to come next time. So few minutes after the Call For Paper opens - we get abstracts submitted - the majority of the first ones come from outside of Norway.
