New Performance Tools for Java 7

By Michael Williams, Principal Curriculum Developer

Have you ever wished for an easy way to monitor your application's performance and analyze the application's performance over time? With the release of Java 7 u40, your wish has just come true. 

Two tools are are now bundled with the Java JDK. Both tools have been around for a while as part of Oracle Fusion Middleware, but now have been ported to the Hotspot JVM.

Java Mission Control

Java Mission Control is a live monitoring and analysis tool for Java 7. This tool lets you monitor live data coming from a running JVM. Mission Control has a modern, customizable user interface which allows you to chart only the data you're interested in. In addition, the triggers feature lets you notify specific personnel about key events that occur in your application. Finally, Mission Control can load recordings from Java Flight Recorder for detailed analysis.

Oracle Java Flight Recorder

Oracle Java Flight Recorder is a tool for recording key information about your application over time. Much like an airline flight recorder, Java Flight Recorder stores key telemetry from your application as it runs; it then loads recordings into Mission Control for detailed analysis. Recordings can be run continuously on your applications with minimal impact on performance.

Java Performance Tuning with Mission Control and Flight Recorder Training

Interested in learning more about these tools?

Oracle University has released the new Java Performance Tuning with Mission Control and Flight Recorder course. This course deep dives into Oracle Mission Control and Flight Recorder, along with other interesting performance-related information, including:

  • Details about how garbage collection works in the JVM.
  • A detailed review of the garbage collectors available in Hotspot, including the new G1 garbage collector.
  • Profiling your application using NetBeans and other tools.
  • Detecting and troubleshooting common performance issues like memory leaks and contention issues.
  • Tuning guidelines for each of the Java garbage collectors.

The Benefits of Digital Training

As the world becomes more and more digital, technology is changing the face of IT education. In the past, students signed up for classes and went to education centers to learn. While today's students can still go to a classroom if they prefer, it's becoming more and more popular to take training on digital devices, including desktops, laptops and tablets. Plus, it's now possible to access lab environments and classroom materials on those same machines.

 “eLearning is considered the ‘primary’ delivery method of IT training for about 45% of enterprises.”

International Data Corporation (IDC)

Digital Learning Advantages

The move to digital training (or eLearning) has many advantages. Students have essentially grown up using computers, so going digital is a simple switch from the traditional classroom. Anytime, anywhere, training fits into a busy schedule and gives students the luxury of making progress at their own rate. Travel is no longer required, helping save time and money. When done right, the move to digital learning provides more people with greater access to the best instruction from top instructors, with content that is fresh, thorough and up to date. 

Three Ways to Go Digital

Oracle University offers our top classroom training courses in digital formats that you can access from your home, office or any convenient location. Choose from three delivery options, depending on your preference: Oracle Training On Demand, Live Virtual Class or Self-Study Courses.

Training On Demand gives you all the benefits of classroom training, including access to hands-on labs, without having to travel or be dependent on course schedules. 

  • Get the complete classroom experience in a streaming video format.
  • Access content as often as you want for 90 days.
  • Learn at your own pace with options to pause, fast forward and replay.
  • Take classes on your own schedule and remotely via mobile devices.
  • Select the lessons you want to view or search for topics to review. 
Live Virtual Class Training brings the best of Oracle University's traditional instructor-led training and labs directly to you via a highly interactive, online learning environment.
  • Delivered by live instructors with full access to lab environments.
  • Classes available in multiple time zones and languages.
  • Extended lab access for 24 hours a day for the duration of the class.
  • Live support available 24 hours a day, before and after class.
  • Can be customized for your business or delivered as one of Oracle University's Private Events.

Self-Study Courses include interactive, multimedia training that you can download.

  • You can access as many times as you wish for an unlimited time. 
  • These courses can also be purchased in multi-course bundles for maximum convenience. 
  • Learn and study anytime, anywhere.

Digital Training Can Help You Become Oracle Certified

Furthermore, qualifying courses taken in the Training On Demand and Live Virtual Class formats satisfy Oracle certification requirements, which makes preparing for your certification exams even easier. Oracle University also offers Certification Discount Packages in these formats.

Use Oracle Application Express to Easily Develop or Run Applications

Did you know that Oracle Application Express is a standard component of the Oracle Database and is installed by default when you install Oracle Database 12c? Once the database is installed, you can then configure the Web Listener and provide an Application Express Environment within minutes.

What is Oracle Application Express?

Oracle Application Express is a "no-cost" option of the Oracle Database, which means you can have any number of developers creating any number of applications with any number of end-users - all without paying any additional licensing costs. Furthermore, your Oracle Database maintenance agreement also covers support for Application Express with the dedicated Oracle Support engineers.



Oracle Application Express Offers Very Low Barriers to Entry

With Oracle Application Express, you can build web and mobile applications quickly and easily. Start with Oracle Database XE, or even our free hosted development service and Application Express to develop applications with zero initial financial investment.

When ready to go to production, you can then pay a monthly subscription using a hosted solution. These hosted solutions include Oracle Database Cloud Service, or you can buy an Oracle Database license. There is no additional licensing cost associated with Application Express. 

Citizen developers have proven very capable of building their own "targeted" applications using Application Express. This allows you to develop your own solutions, rather than having to rely on your IT department. Avoid associated delays and costs of such development efforts.

The flexibility of Application Express caters to a vast range of applications, from the very simplest conversion of a spreadsheet, to a highly integrated solution, such as the Oracle Store. Therefore, even those humble, "targeted" applications developed with limited scope can readily be enhanced. These applications can then meet stringent business requirements once they are transformed into company-wide applications that are available to thousands.

Experience the Benefits of Using Oracle Application Express 

Oracle Application Express allows you to define and enhance database-centric applications using only a web browser, as no client-side software is required for developing or running applications. For the majority of applications, developers can simply use the built-in wizards and features, including Dynamic Actions to define rich, interactive web applications.

Enroll in New Oracle Application Express Workshop I & II Courses 

Check out our new Oracle Application Express Workshop courses below and see how Oracle University's extensive curriculum and hands-on tutorials prepare you to build any number of applications. These courses are designed and developed in very close cooperation with the Application Express Development Team to ensure the best quality training material. 

The above-mentioned workshops enable you to take full advantage of the extensive functionality available within Application Express. Through interacting with expert Oracle University instructors and participating in hands-on exercises, you'll learn how to readily convert any database-centric business requirements into fully featured applications that your users will love.

After completing these courses, you will be able to build higher quality applications even faster. Not only will you meet your business requirements; you'll also exceed your users' expectations.

So, what are you waiting for? Explore Oracle Application Express training courses today.

Oracle Knowledge Training Update

Oracle University has been hard at work updating and improving the Oracle Knowledge Curriculum.

The curriculum development team routinely assesses the impact new product releases have on courses, prioritizing which courses should be updated first. This often results in courses with multiple release levels being listed on the Oracle University website.

This may lead you to wonder whether a particular course will be appropriate for the product release level you have installed. Furthermore, as the curriculum evolves, course names and learning paths may also change and generate some confusion about which training you should attend. 

We'll Help You Choose the Right Training Courses

The following guide is intended to help you choose the right training courses, whether you are new to Oracle Knowledge or have previously attended training and would like to continue on to the next course. The Oracle University Website contains complete course descriptions, learning paths and schedules. This post is designed to give you insight to help you make the right choices when registering for courses. 

Product Releases

Oracle Knowledge is currently on release 8.5.1. The majority of the Oracle Knowledge training curriculum has been updated based on release 8.5. With the exception of two courses, the entire 8.5 curriculum is appropriate for customers running release 8.2 or above. The two courses that should be aligned with the 8.2 product release are Interpreting Oracle Knowledge Analytics Rel 8.2 and Oracle Knowledge Technical Architecture and Config Rel. 8.2.

Interpreting Oracle Knowledge Analytics

The Oracle Knowledge 8.2 analytics product leveraged a third party tool to query the database. This tool was replaced by Oracle Business Intelligence in release 8.5, resulting in some major changes to the way data is accessed. A revised course, Oracle Knowledge Analytics Rel 8.5, was released in October 2013. This course is appropriate for customers running version 8.5 or later. All future public classes will cover the latest version of the course. Classes covering the older version of the product will be conducted on a per request basis or private event only.

Oracle Knowledge Technical Architecture and Configuration Rel 8.2

There were some significant changes to the underlying architecture of the Oracle Knowledge product in release 8.5. These changes are reflected in the new Technical Architecture class, which expanded from 3 days to 5.

Because customers typically attend this class early in their deployments, Oracle University will only be running the Oracle Knowledge Technical Architecture and Configuration Rel 8.5 class on its public schedule. Additional schedules can be found for both Classroom Training and Live Virtual Class training in other regions.

Please check your local schedule for locations and dates. Customers running earlier versions of the software and needing this training should consult with their Oracle University Sales Representative before registering for class.

If you have questions, please contact us.
