ArchBeat Link-o-Rama for November 21, 2012

  • Fault Handling and Prevention - Part 1 | Guido Schmutz and Ronald van Luttikhuizen
    In this technical article, part one of a four part series, Oracle ACE Directors Guido Schmutz and Ronald van Luttikhuizen guide you through an introduction to fault handling in a service-oriented environment using Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus.
  • One Stop Shop for Oracle Webcasts
    Webcasts can be a great way to get information about Oracle products without having to go cross-eyed reading yet another document off your computer screen. Oracle's new Webcast Center offers selectable filtering to make it easy to get to the information you want. Yes, you have to register to gain access, but that process is quick, and with over 200 webcasts to choose from you know you'll find useful content.
  • Oracle on Oracle: Is that all? (Identity Management)| Darin Pendergraft Darin Pendergraft shares a discussion with Jaime Cardoso aboutthe latter's experience with Oracle's IDM products. What's particularly interesting is that the discussion grew out of Jaime's highly critical comment that Darin missed important pointsabout those products in an earlier interview Chirag Andani. If that ain't social engagement, I don't know what is.
  • I.T. Chargeback : Core to Cloud Computing | Zero to Cloud
    "While chargeback has existed as a concept for many years (especially in mainframe environments), it is the move to this self-service model that has created a need for a new breed of chargeback applications for cloud," says Mark McGill. "Enabling self-service without some form of chargeback is like opening a shop where all of the goods are free."
  • New Self-paced Online Oracle BPM 11g Developer Training | Dan Atwood Oracle ACE Dan Atwood of Avio Consulting shares a lot of information about a new Oracle BPM 11g Developer Workshop.
  • JPA SQL and Fetching tuning ( EclipseLink ) | Edwin Biemond Oracle ACE Edwin Biemond's post illustrates how to "use the department and employee entity of the HR Oracle demo schema to explain the JPA options you have to control the SQL statements and the JPA relation Fetching."

Podcast Show Notes: Conversations in the Cloud

The centerpiece of every OTN Architect Day event is a panel discussion the gathers all of the session speakers togehter to respond to questions from the audience. I generally try to record these discussions, usually by stiking my iPad on top of one of the PA speakers, with mixed results. Fortunately, the A/V tech at the venue for the Los Angeles event, held on October 25, 2012, had the necessary gear to get a good-quality recording of the panel discussion. So starting this week the OTN ArchBeat Podcast will feature highlights from those discussions.

  • Listen to Part 1: Dude, What's My Role?
    Members of the Architect Day panel respond to an audience question about what happens to traditional IT roles in a cloud environment.
  • Listen to Part 2: Migrating Mission-Critical Applications to the Cloud
    The panel offers advice and examples in response to an audience question about dealing with mission-critical applications.
  • Listen to Part 3: All Clouds Are Not Equal
    The panel responds to a challenging question about cloud strategy with a discussion of enterprise-grade cloud services.
  • Listen to Part 4: Cloud Security and Auditing
    The last segment in the series is short discussion in response to an audience question about auditing and security in the cloud.
