    "The approach is very generic and works for WebLogic, Glassfish or any other Java application," say Frank Munz.

  3. Cloud API and service designers, stop thinking small | Cloud Computing - InfoWorld
    "The focus must shift away from fine-grained APIs that provide some type of primitive service, such as pushing data to a block of storage or perhaps making a request to a cloud-rooted database," says InfoWorld's David Linthicum. "To go beyond primitives, you must understand how these services should be used in a much larger architectural context. In other words, you need to understand how businesses will employ these services to form real workplace solutions—inside and outside the enterprise."
  4. Adding a runtime picker to a taskflow parameter in WebCenter | Yannick Ongena

    "One of the trends we've seen is that as the average host platform becomes more powerful, our users are consistently running more and more vm's," says The Fat Bloke. "Some of our users have large libraries of vm's of various vintages, whilst others have groups of vm's that are run together as an assembly of the various tiers in a multi-tiered software solution, for example, a database tier, middleware tier, and front-ends." The new VirtualBox release, a year in the making, addresses the needs of these users, he explains.
  8. Configuring Oracle Business Intelligence 11g MDS XML Source Control Management with Git Version Control | Christian Screen

  • The Pragmatic Architect: To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before | Frank Buschmann
    "Many architects have technical knowledge that's both impressive and sound, which is indeed an inevitable basis for design success," says Frank Buschmann. "Yet, a lot of software projects fail or suffer due to severe challenges in their architecture. The key to mastery is how architects approach design, what they value, and where they focus their attention and work."
  • As retail dies, whom will be the winners? | Peter Evans-Greenwood
    "The problem for many retailers is that how consumers shop has changed but the the retailers haven't adapted, " says Peter Evans-Greenwood. "Their sole virtue was to be the last step in a supply chain delivering somebody else's products to the consumer. However, being the last step in the supply chain is no longer a virtue when consumers skip across channels and can reach around the globe, no longer dependant on or limited to what they can find locally."

Thought for the Day

"Brains require stimulation. If you're locked into a pattern of work, work, and more work, your brain soon habituates - the same way that it lets you stop hearing a clock ticking. So, if you want to be more effective at work, you must, paradoxically, be less single-minded in your devotion to work. Anything you do—anything—that stimulates new segments of your brain will make you a more effective programmer or analyst. I promise, with a money-back guarantee."

    "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."
