The Life and an INTP Part One - Ah, the good old days

This is somewhat of a personal post, but it's also related to Oracle. I've been involved in some discussions about 12c Multitenant and the fact that Oracle will be doing away with the 12c Non-Multitenant architecture someday. These discussions have made me a bit insightful, as have some related things. So, if you will allow me a moment to write a few personal thoughts - I'll then get back to Oracle stuff. I also wonder if you might relate to some of these thoughts.First I...

You can't please all the people anytime - or - How people use anything to throw up FUD - or - Yes, the non-CDB architecture is deprecated in Oracle Database 12c - Part Four

Welcome to part three of my response to this blog entry on the deprecation notice of the Oracle non-CDB architecture. The previous blog entries are here for part one. Until now I've tackled these comments: What I want to talk about is Oracle’s attitude to its customers and what seems to me to be breathtaking arrogance. Personally I can think of three very good reasons why I might not want to use the single PDBwithin a CDB configuration which does not require a...
