ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for October 2012

The Top 10 most popular items shared on the OTN ArchBeat Facebook Page for October 2012.

  1. OAM/OVD JVM Tuning | @FusionSecExpert
    Vinay from the Oracle Fusion Middleware Architecture Group (known as the A-Team) shares a process for analyzing and improving performance in Oracle Virtual Directory and Oracle Access Manager.
  2. SOA Galore: New Books for Technical Eyes Only
    Shake up up your technical skills with this trio of new technical books from community members covering SOA and BPM.
  3. Clustering ODI11g for High-Availability Part 1: Introduction and Architecture | Richard Yeardley
    "JEE agents can be deployed alongside, or instead of, standalone agents," says Rittman Meade's Richard Yeardley. "But there is one key advantage in using JEE agents and WebLogic – when you deploy JEE agents as part of a WebLogic cluster they can be configured together to form a high availability cluster." Learn more in Yeardley's extensive post.
  4. Solving Big Problems in Our 21st Century Information Society | Irving Wladawsky-Berger
    "I believe that the kind of extensive collaboration between the private sector, academia and government represented by the Internet revolution will be the way we will generally tackle big problems in the 21st century. Just as with the Internet, governments have a major role to play as the catalyst for many of the big projects that the private sector will then take forward and exploit. The need for high bandwidth, robust national broadband infrastructures is but one such example." -- Irving Wladawsky-Berger
  5. Eventually, 90% of tech budgets will be outside IT departments | ZDNet
    Another interesting post from ZDNet blogger Joe McKendrick about changing roles in IT.
  6. ADF Mobile - Login Functionality | Andrejus Baranovskis
    "The new ADF Mobile approach with native deployment is cool when you want to access phone functionality (camera, email, sms and etc.), also when you want to build mobile applications with advanced UI," reports Oracle ACE Director Andrejus Baranovskis.
  7. Podcast: Are You Future Proof? - Part 2
    In Part 2, practicing architects and Oracle ACE Directors Ron Batra (AT&T), Basheer Khan (Innowave Technology), and Ronald van Luttikhuizen (Vennster) discuss re-tooling one’s skill set to reflect changes in enterprise IT, including the knowledge to steer stakeholders around the hype to what's truly valuable.
  8. ADF Mobile Custom Javascript — iFrame Injection | John Brunswick
    The ADF Mobile Framework provides a range of out of the box components to add within your AMX pages, according to John Brunswick. But what happens when "an out of the box component does not directly fulfill your development need? What options are available to extend your application interface?" John has an answer.
  9. Oracle Solaris 11.1 update focuses on database integration, cloud | Mark Fontecchio
    TechTarget editor Mark Fontecchio reports on the recent Oracle Solaris 11.1 release, with comments from IDC's Al Gillen.
  10. Architects Matter: Making sense of the people who make sense of enterprise IT
    Why do architects matter? Oracle Enterprise Architect Eric Stephens suggests that you ask yourself this question the next time you take the elevator to the Oracle offices on the 45th floor of the Willis Tower in Chicago, Illinois (or any other skyscraper, for that matter). If you had to take the stairs to get to those offices, who would you blame? "You get the picture," he says. "Architecture is essential for any necessarily complex structure, be it a building or an enterprise." (Read the article)

Thought for the Day

"I will contend that conceptual integrity is the most important consideration in system design. It is better to have a system omit certain anomalous features and improvements, but to reflect one set of design ideas, than to have one that contains many good but independent and uncoordinated ideas."

ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for August 5-11, 2012

The Top 10 most popular items shared through my social networks for the week of August 5-11, 2012.

  1. Leveraging Governance to Sustain Enterprise Architecture Efforts
    SOA, Cloud computing, Big Data, Mobile computing, BOYD and other factors are already rearranging the enterprise IT landscape in much the same way Godzilla rearranges Tokyo. The potential for these technologies is incredible. But with each new technological innovation, "it is critical to reevaluate relevant EA governance," says Eric Stephens. "Otherwise, the architectural fragmentation that exists with legacy technology will manifest itself by an order of magnitude with newer generations of technology." More insight from Eric in this white paper.
  2. Manuel Rosa - SOA Governance at EDP: A Global Energy Company @ SOA, Cloud Service Technology Symposium 2012
    Thinking about registering for the SOA, Cloud, and Service Technology Forum, September 24-25 in London? You'll find a big fat discount code at the top of this recent post on the Oracle SOA & BPM Partner Community Blog. Who doesn't love a discount?
  3. Cloud and business transformation: this time, it's different
    "The real revolution is only just begun," says Joe McKendrick. "At the high end, private and hybrid clouds are shifting the business models of many non-IT corporations and organizations, turning them into technology or cloud providers themselves. At the lower end, we have a whole generation of startups and small businesses that are built entirely on the cloud. In between, we have 'loosely coupled' corporations that essentially serve as brokers of services they get from somewhere else and deliver to their customers."
  4. Webcast: Drill Down on Disaster Recovery
    In this webcast, Oracle's Joseph Meeks and Margaret Hamburger discuss key steps you should take to significantly reduce the risk of downtime while protecting your business data with Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture. Thursday, August 16, 2012. 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.
  5. My Clustering Cheet Sheet | Rick Ramsey
    The question is: "Why would somebody complicate our sysadmin lives by suggesting we install Oracle RAC on Oracle Solaris Cluster? What would that be, highly-available high availability?" Rick "OTN Garage" Ramsey has the answer.
  6. Now Available: Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2.2
    GlassFish Server 3.1.2.2 is a microrelease that addresses feedback from the GlassFish community to improve the developer experience by resolving NetBeans bug 211962, JAX-WS issue JAX_WS-1059, and GlassFish Server issue GLASSFISH-18446.
  7. Simplifying OIM 11g (Chapter Two)
    The second article in Oracle Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger Alex Lopez's series on tips and tricks for simplifying the use of advanced features in Oracle Identity Manager 11g.
  8. OTN Architect Day: Boston
    Oracle Technology Network Architect Day is coming to Boston, September 12, 2012. The event will be held at the Boston Marriott Burlington (One Burlington Mall Road, Burlington, MA 01803), and features a full day of sessions with technical experts, along with plenty of opportunity to interact with your peers. The event is free, but seating is limited, so register now.
  9. Getting Oracle artifacts into a Maven environment
    "Maven provides the ability to load any artifact into a Maven repository and to give it a set of coordinates," says Fusion Middleware A-Team blogger Mark Nelson. "This means that you can easily add the Oracle provided artifacts to your own Maven repository, or to a shared repository in your environment (e.g. a Maven Repository Manager)."
  10. Quick introduction of what and why of Oracle Database Edition Based Redefinition
    "Availability is a highly desirable aspect of Fusion Middleware application," says Oracle ACE Director Lucas Jellema. "Planned downtime therefore sounds quite silly. However, the introduction of changes to applications has typically been associated with the roll out and redeployment of the application causing disruption of service - through loss of existing conversations and unavailability during the deployment process. Several approaches and mechanisms are available in the Oracle stack that will help substantially reduce the loss of uptime because of changes to applications."
