The Most Popular Articles and Downloads of 2009

I have just run my report on the most popular tech articles/guides published by OTN in 2009, which you can see below:

1. Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Rel 5 on Oracle Database 11g and Linux, by Mike Revitt

2. High-Performance Oracle JDBC Programming, by Yuli Vasiliev

3. Oracle RMAN Backups: Pushing the "Easy" Button, by Porus Homi Havewala (Oracle ACE Director)

4. Tom Kyte: On Dynamic Sampling (from Oracle Magazine)

5. Scripting Oracle RMAN Commands (from Oracle Magazine), by Arup Nanda (Oracle ACE Director)

6. Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control Architecture for Very Large Sites, by Porus Homi Havewala (Oracle ACE Director)

7. Taking an Oracle ADF Application from Design to Reality, by Chris Muir (Oracle ACE Director) and Penny Cookson (Oracle ACE)

8. Tom Kyte: On Constraints, Metadata, and Truth (from Oracle Magazine)

9. High Performance and Availability with Oracle RAC and PHP, by John Lim

10. Oracle ADF Development Essentials, by John Stegeman (Oracle ACE Director)

(The "all-time" list looks quite a bit different of course; the above is restricted to publication this year only.)

You may also be interested in the current state of the "Most Popular Downloads" list. This list excludes packaged applications and drivers/utilities:

1. Oracle Database
2. Oracle SQL Developer
3. Oracle JDeveloper
4. Oracle WebLogic Server
5. Oracle Enterprise Manager
6. Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
7. Oracle Application Express Standalone
8. Oracle SOA Suite
9. Oracle JRockit
10. Oracle Application Server

Always instructive information when reviewing the past year. Somehow, I think these lists will look quuiiiiitte a bit different in 2010.


Apologies for asking a stupid question, but why do you expect the list will look so different in 2010? Is something big planned for 2010? Sorry again.

Jim, there's this little company called Sun Microsystems that Oracle is ostensibly acquiring in 2010 (pending regulatory approvals!). We may see some editorial impact, consequently. :)
