Nancy Ikeda nails it in a great Oracle OpenWorld recording of her Best Practices for Application Performance, Scalability, and Availability session now viewable on the Oracle Call Interface page
The session covered:
Best practice coding samples and techniques show how to resolve connection management, statement execution, and data fetching inefficiencies in applications using APIs such as JDBC, OCI, ODBC, ODP.Net, or higher-level scripting languages. This session shows how the Automatic Workload Repository feature of Oracle Database and Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor profiling tools help diagnose application design and coding issues. Specific solutions show how to resolve these and other issues to enhance applications for scalability and resilience. Among the solutions discussed are Oracle Database 12c’s new client configuration file. Developers or DBAs can use it to tune and configure applications without modifying code. Examples use JDBC and OCI but are applicable to all APIs.
Nancy is one of Oracle's senior developers working in the call interface group.
