Prereqs for OTN VTS Middleware Sessions

Planning on participating in the Middleware sessions that are part of next week's OTN Virtual Technology Summit? Great! But did you know that there are important prerequisites for those sessions? The highly interactive nature of the middleware sessions means you don't just get to sit on your hands.

For example, if you plan to participate in Mark Nelson's session on Getting Started with the Oracle Maven Repository, (part of the Open Source and Integration sub-track) you will need the Oracle Maven Repository Lab Guide, which includes information on where you can download key prerequisites:

  • WebLogic Server 12.1.3 Developer’s (ZIP) Distribution
  • JDK 1.7 or 1.8 (latest release)
  • Apache Maven 3.2.5.

Likewise, if you plan to participate in Real-Time Data Replication to Hadoop using GoldenGate 12c Adaptors by Oracle ACE Michael Rainey, or in Bringing Oracle Big Data SQL to Oracle Data Integration 12c Mappings by Oracle ACE Director Mark Rittman, you need to check out Tame Big Data Using Oracle Data Integration. This demo forms the basis for the sessions by Rainey and Rittman, and includes information on how to access and install the Oracle Big Data Lite Virtual Machine, which provides an integrated environment to help you get started with the Oracle Big Data platform.

Click here for an extensive list of other resources that will help get the most out of your OTN Virtual Technology Summit experience.

OTN Virtual Technology Summit Middleware Track: Data Integration and Analytics

The middleware track for the next Oracle Technology Network Virtual Technology Summit consists of two completely different sub-tracks:

Yesterday's post featured the agenda for the Open Source and Integration sub-track. This post features the agenda for the Data Integration and Analytics sub-track.

In this post I want to focus on the agenda for the Open Source and Integration track, which covers WebLogic, Coherence, Maven and Java EE. I'll provide detail on the Data Integration and Analytics track in an upcoming post.

HOL: Real-Time Data Replication to Hadoop using GoldenGate 12c Adaptors Oracle GoldenGate 12c is well known for its highly performant data replication between relational databases. With the GoldenGate Adaptors, the tool can now apply the source transactions to a Big Data target, such as HDFS. In this session, we'll explore the different options for utilizing Oracle GoldenGate 12c to perform real-time data replication from a relational source database into HDFS. The GoldenGate Adaptors will be used to load movie data from the source to HDFS for use by Hive. Next, we'll take the demo a step further and publish the source transactions to a Flume agent, allowing Flume to handle the final load into the targets.

HOL: Bringing Oracle Big Data SQL to Oracle Data Integration 12c Mappings Oracle Big Data SQL extends Oracle SQL and Oracle Exadata SmartScan technology to Hadoop, giving developers the ability to execute Oracle SQL transformations against Apache Hive tables and extending the Oracle Database data dictionary to the Hive metastore. In this session we'll look at how Oracle Big Data SQL can be used to create ODI12c mappings against both Oracle Database and Hive tables, to conbine customer data held in Oracle tables with incoming purchase activities stored on a Hadoop cluster. We'll look at the new transformation capabilities this gives you over Hadoop data, and how you can use ODI12c's Sqoop integration to copy the combined dataset back into the Hadoop environment.

An Introduction to Oracle Enterprise Metadata Manager This session takes a deep technical dive into the recently released Oracle Enterprise Metadata Manager. You’ll see the standard features of data lineage, impact analysis and version management applied across a myriad of Oracle and non-Oracle technologies into a consistent metadata whole, including Oracle Database, Oracle Data Integrator, Oracle Business Intelligence and Hadoop. This session will examine the Oracle Enterprise Metadata Manager "bridge" architecture and how it is similar to the ODI knowledge module. You will learn how to harvest individual sources of metadata, such as OBIEE, ODI, the Oracle Database and Hadoop, and you will learn how to create OEMM configurations that contain multiple metadata stores as a single coherent metadata strategy.

Stewart Bryson, Oracle ACE Director, Owner and Co-founder, Red Pill Analytics

You'll find an extensive list of additional resources for these sessions here, including hands-on lab guides and other information you'll want to access before the event.

About the OTN Virtual Technology Summit

Remember, each OTN Virtual Technology Summit includes four primary tracks:

  • Database
  • Java
  • Systems
  • Middleware

You'll find the complete event agenda here

Note that the Database, Systems, and Middleware tracks each are split into two sub-tracks. So your registration for this event provides access to a total of seven tracks, and more than 20 individual sessions. You can freely switch between any of the tracks at any time.

Top 5 OTN Business Intelligence Articles for 2014

It should be noted that the article in the #1 position totally dominated this list. To be specific, the article by Oracle ACE Directors Mark Rittman and Kevin McGinley captured just under 50% of ALL of the unique visits to any OTN technical articles on Business Intelligence during 2014. In fact, the drop off in visits between Oracle ACE Christian Screen's article in the #5 position and the article that would have been in the #6 position was so precipitous that it seemed disingenuous to include anything that did not make the top 5. Way to go, people!

Twitter Tuesday: Top 10 Tweets - December 2-8, 2014

Here they are: the Top 10 tweets from @OTNArchBeat for the last seven days (December 2-8, 2014).

If you're wondering why positions #1 and #2 are occupied by the same message, allow me to elucidate. Note that while the messages are the same, the #1 tweet was posted at 9pm EST on Dec 5, while the #2 tweet was posted at 9am EST on Dec 4. So, same message, different tweets, and different audiences -- that is, unless some people are spending way too much time on Twitter.
