Developers: Got EBR?

Dive into Edition-Based Redefinition at OpenWorld
Has Oracle snapped in the last piece of the availability puzzle? With Edition-Based Redefinition (EBR), it appears that they have. EBR is a new feature in Oracle Database 11g Release 2 that enables customers to upgrade their database applications while the application is still online.

Oracle Publishing's senior editor, Jeff Erickson, caught up with product manager, Bryn Llewellyn, in the hallway at the ODTUG Kaleidoscope conference to learn about the technology and what Bryn has planned for OpenWorld in September. Bryn had just finished delivering a talk on EBR while wearing, for reasons he will explain, his running clothes.

Check out some of the EBR-focused sessions (and find more in the Content Catalog):

In 2005 I helped build a 24 node RAC cluster in Moscone West. In 2009 I co-presented with Kevin Closson on Exadata's Hybrid Columnar Compression. This year will be the best because I have been asked to present "Edition-Based Redefinition: Live in SQL*Plus" (session S313426 on Tuesday at 11:00am in Moscone South #302). Edition Based Redefinition is truly the premier feature in Database 11gR2 and I will live demo it doing can not be done with any other technology: A zero outage application upgrade. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
