Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler – A Perfect Tool to Data Modeling

Written by Priya Shridhar, Senior Curriculum Developer, Oracle Database Application Development Curriculum Development Team

Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler is a graphical data modeling tool that aids and enhances communication between data architects, database administrators, application developers and users.

It simplifies the data modeling development process.

In today's development environments, designers use an existing data model as a beginning point to enhance the database design. To ensure the database design follows the rules of a relational database design, it's important to check and enforce the integrity and consistency of the design.

All this and more can be achieved using Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler.


Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler offers a wide range of data modeling capabilities:

  • Captures business rules and information.
  • Creates process, logical, relational, physical and multidimensional models.
  • Imports data models from a variety of sources, including Oracle Designer, VAR files, Erwin and more.
  • Applies design rules to check and enforce integrity and consistency of designs.
  • Stores metadata information in XML files.
  • Synchronizes the relational model with the data dictionary.
  • Engineers from a logical model to a relational model and vice versa.

Instructor Insight: Introduction to Oracle BI Applications with ODI

By Laura Garza, Principal Instructor for Oracle University

Often when teaching Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA) with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), I get many questions concerning:

1) The different OBIA repositories

2) Selecting an OBIA offering and Functional Area

3) ODI terminology and how it relates to OBIA

The Different OBIA Repositories:

  • The Oracle BI Application Oracle Data Integrator repository contains the OBIA specific prebuilt ETL logic.
  • The Oracle BI Application Components repository contains the repository for the Configuration Manager and Functional Setup Manager. It also contains the load plan definitions, setup objects and domain mapping to name a few.

Needed! IT Security Skills

The need to safeguard data has become a hot topic lately.

Recent security breaches have companies taking extra steps to ensure their critical data is secure.

This has led to an increased demand for IT security experts.

According to a recent article on Dice.com:

“Demand for the skills necessary to secure networks and data continues to drive opportunities for security specialists. During April, job postings for security-related positions rose 20 percent year-on-year, according to business intelligence from Wanted Analytics.”

According to another study by Frost and Sullivan, “Demand for security professionals in the Americas is increasing by 12% annually, with 164,000 jobs forecast in the next year alone.” Source

Companies are  seeking security talent from the outside to address the talent gap; however, one alternative that's often overlooked is providing existing personnel with security-related training for product areas they already manage.

Training existing staff accelerates your timeline and reduces long-term costs associated with turnover and re-hiring.

Hands-on security training is available from Oracle University across the product stack. Benefit from training and best practices directly from the security experts at Oracle.

Instructor Insight: Oracle 12c High Availability New Features - Table Recovery in a GoldenGate Environment

By Randy Richeson, Senior Principal Oracle University Instructor

"Students often ask if a table can be recovered to a point in time and whether GoldenGate can capture this recovery. Oracle 12c enables you to recover one or more tables or table partitions to a specified point in time without affecting the remaining database objects.

This new RMAN functionality reduces the recovery scope and possibly the recovery time and disk space requirements when compared with Database point-in-time-recovery, tablespace point-in-time recovery, and various flashback features which were introduced prior to 12c."

Interact with Oracle Database Data Using the R Language in a Safe Environment

Written by Brian Pottle, Senior Principal Curriculum Developer, Oracle Curriculum Development Team

OracleEnterprise Essentials Training Now Available

Oracle has adopted R as a language and environment to support statisticians, data analysts and data scientists in performing statistical data analysis and advanced analytics, as well as generating sophisticated graphics.

Oracle R Enterprise (ORE) is a component of the Oracle Database Analytics Option. ORE makes the open source R statistical programming language and environment ready for the enterprise and big data.

Designed for problems involving large amounts of data - Oracle R Enterprise integrates R with Oracle Database

  • Using ORE, R users can run R commands and scripts for statistical and graphical analyses on data stored in Oracle Database or outside the database.
  • In both cases, users can leverage the power and scalability of Oracle Database to overcome the memory constraints of the base R environment.
  • R users can develop, refine and deploy R scripts that leverage parallelism in the database to automate and vastly improve performance of the analytic process.

Because it runs as an embedded component of Oracle Database, ORE can run any R package, either by function pushdown or via embedded R scripts, while the database automatically manages the spawned R engines that process the data.

Oracle R Enterprise Essentials Training will teach you how to access the power of Oracle Database for enhanced R programming and analysis for big data opportunities.

What You Will Learn

Expert Oracle University instructors will guide you through the process of adding the power of ORE to your existing R technical portfolio. As you will learn, ORE transparently leverages the massive scalability of the database for the big data analysis problems.

In this course, you learn how to interact with database data using the R language and R data using ORE functions. In addition, you will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to use Oracle Database for predictive analysis.

Finally, you'll learn how to leverage the database server machine for executing R scripts from SQL and R, both individually and in a data-parallel and task-parallel manner.

Get the "Buzz" on Java SE 8

Written by Ravi Narasimhacharya, Product Specialist, Java and Middleware

The "Buzz" on Java SE 8

Oracle sees Java 8 as "the most significant upgrade" to the software since it acquired Sun Microsystems and its software portfolio in 2010. Java 8 is a revolutionary release of the world’s #1 development platform. It includes a huge upgrade to the Java programming model and a coordinated evolution of the JVM, Java language, and libraries.

Development Platform

Java is a major development platform helping to drive the M2M (Machine to Machine) and IoT (Internet of Things) market. The appearance of Java 8 is set to consolidate its position. Java 8 is packed full of some really exciting features at both the JVM and language level.

Java Integration

The Standard Edition (SE) and Micro Edition (ME) of Java are now being converged, to make it easier for developers to share their code and applications. The merge of Java SE 8 and Java ME 8 will "provide a consistent experience for developers across desktop and mobile platforms."

Now, Java SE 8 provides common APIs across SE and ME with portability and common tooling across the editions. This approach gives developers a smooth development experience across small to large devices, encouraging server-side Java developers to build for the embedded space. It "improves developer productivity and application performance, along with the ability to ‘right-size' the platform for deployment across an ever wider range of use cases."

Always Connected

With the arrival of Java 8, we need to think big about connected, always-on devices, including smart appliances in the home, wearable devices, medical sensors, connected vehicles, smart meters, and industrial controllers. Java 8 promises to provide a scalable, flexible and secure development platform for the Internet of Things (IoT) market.

More "Buzz" on Java 8

Java 8 brings several major enhancements:

  • Lambda Expressions - “less code means more productivity:" The support for lambda expressions and the related Streams API is the most dominant feature of Java 8. Lambdas (for short) allow developers to simplify the code they write, enabling them to write code that is more compact, simpler and easier to maintain and share with others.
  • New Date and Time API - The new date and time API reduces the complexity that developers are facing with current native Java library API, especially when dealing with internationalization and localization for different markets.
  • Integration with JavaScript - Java 8 has introduced a brand new JVM JavaScript engine – Nashorn. This engine allows Java applications to contain components written in JavaScript. When developers want to use both Java and JavaScript, Nashorn can deliver significant performance improvements and interoperability between Java and JavaScript code. 

Learn More about Java SE 8 and What the "Buzz" is all about

Check out these brand new Java SE 8 courses from Oracle University:

  • Java SE 8 New FeaturesGet an overview of the major changes and enhancements in Oracle Java SE 8 and learn about using streams and lambda expressions with collections.
  • Java SE 8 Fundamentals - Through hands-on exercises, you are introduced to object-oriented programming using the Java language.
  • Java SE 8 Programming - Learn the core language features and Application Programming Interfaces (API) you will use to design object-oriented applications with the Java SE 8 Platform.
