Oracle PSRM java SDK recordings now available on the PSRM Training YouTube channel

We are pleased to announce that a new PSRM java SDK overview series is now available on the PSRM YouTube channel.  This includes 20 videos, each about 10 minutes long (on average), covering many of a number of key concepts for working with the PSRM SDK.  The SDK is used to make java extensions to Oracle PSRM that are easily upgraded to each new version of PSRM.  This provides a nice introduction and overview to the PSRM SDK, including what's used for (and not used for), as well as overviews of the wizards and tools provided, and several examples.  

I'm sure you will find this useful, enjoy!

Using Notepad++ as a visual XML editor for PSRM config tools

There have been a few inquires about visual editors for PSRM config tools.  There are several editors you can use, Notepad++ is a popular choice, it allows you to color code here's an example:

NotePad++

Notepad++ is a free editing tool. One of its features is the ability to have additional languages defined, which allows code mark-up, for example.


Setup Procedure

  • Download and install Notepad++ from any source (for example: http://notepad-plus-plus.org/ )

  • Download a local copy of the PSRM Config Tools UDL file (configTools.xml

  • Install the User-Defined Language (UDL) for PSRM Config Tools by doing the following after launching Notepad++:

    • Select Language > Define your language ... from the menus.

    • Click Import.
    • Select your local copy of configTools.xml, then click Open.
    • An "Import successful." dialog box will come up.
    • Close the confirmation dialog box and restart Notepad++.

    • You should now see "ConfigTools" as an option (near the bottom) when you click Language from the menu.

Use

To use the PSRM Config Tools language definition:

  • Edit or paste a config tools text into Notepad++.

  • Select Language > ConfigTools from the menu.

  • Your text will now be treated as a ConfigTools and will be marked-up as such.

Presentations

Here's a version of the UDL for presentation purposes, like for training. This is called "ConfigToolsPresent" and uses bigger text and fancier fonts.

Pros and Cons:

  • Pro: Provides visual cue to developer while viewing/writing xPath or XML.
  • Con: Configuration file needs to be updated and distributed when script syntax changes (new keywords, etc).
