Getting Ready for Collaborate 08

I'm deep in Northern India on vacation right now.  Despite the sensory overload, I'm having a marvelous time.  Getting net access here is an adventure, to put it mildly.  In the midst of all this, I realized that I had this article all queued up -- thanks to the talents of one of my colleagues in the Fusion Middleware team. 

As you start to plan your schedules for the Collaborate conference coming up in Denver in April.  This promises to be a huge combined event for all Oracle Applications customers. Registration is now open and hotels are going fast, as usual.  If you're planning to go but haven't signed up yet, I'd advise doing so
soon.

Something New:  Free Hands-On SOA Workshops


Here's one more good reason to attend Collaborate this year: For the first time, Oracle is offering free "Service Enable E-Business Suite" hands-on workshops for registered conference attendees.  Seats are limited, so be sure to reserve a space in one of the three workshop times if you're interested.  You can find detailed information on the OAUG website.

Getting Past The Hype

Why is this important? Numerous presentations at Oracle Open World, Collaborate etc. have been talking about Service Oriented Architectures (SOA ) and Oracle E-Business Suite. Unfortunately, too often, those were limited to Powerpoint slides filled with marketing-speak. The hands-on workshops will provide a deeper level of technical detail  -- end-to-end across E-Business Suite and Oracle BPEL Process Manager. Think of it as actually experiencing yourself what Jim Van Heel
was writing about in his blog post "Service Enable 11i-Get a Jump on Fusion". If you also run Siebel, PeopleSoft or JDE in your company, you can sign up for those
workshops, too.

Notable Sessions

Unsure what other sessions
to attend at Collaborate? Here are a few recommendations:


For a complete list of all sessions see the OAUG schedule here. You can set the Track to "Architecture" and Products to "E-Business Suite" to restrict the search.

Getting Some Face Time

Collaborate is also an excellent chance for us to meet, either for a quick update or for an in-depth discussion about your deployments and requirements.  I tend to book up quickly so if you'd like to arrange a meeting with me, drop me a line as soon as possible. 

I look forward to seeing you there.

Hey! What am I - chopped liver?? :-)

I've got the Oracle Release 12 upgrade team on the Release 12 Upgrade panel as well as inviting them to exclusively address the Upgrade SIG attendees.

And, of course, my own personal favorite (attended with standing room only at the last OpenWorld, A Technical Road Map for Fusion Middleware, E-Business Suite Release 12, and Fusion Applications by yours truly.

It must be the rickshaws - they've scrambled the mind...:-))

I hope you have safe travels home. We've missed the blogging madness. :-)

thx,
John

Hi,
I am regular reader of this blog, and I must say this blog is fantastic in terms of articles, news regarding E-business suite and Oracle Fusion Techstack. I have worked in both OAF , ADF Faces. I would like to know is it possible to deploy a standalone adf faces j2ee application in R12 OC4J server. If yes, can anybody on this blog provide a article/ metalink note regarding this! This is really important for R12 customers to know whether they can move their custom applications in ADF or not!
