Technical Best Practices for Oracle Utilities Application Framework Based Products

The Best Practices for IT Operations for Oracle Utilities Application Framework Based Products whitepaper has been updated for the latest information and has been renamed to "Technical Best Practices for Oracle Utilities Application Framework Based Products".

There are quite a few updates to the document:


  • The advice is now centered around V2.x of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework.

  • Background of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework - History of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework including a summary of its facilties.

  • Updated list of whitepapers for the product set.

  • Data Management Best Practices - Originally some internal advice but some advice around data types, archiving, data retention, partitioning, compression and clustering.

  • Network Bandwidth guidelines.

  • Clustered server advice.

  • New section on Business Server Best Practices including JVM optimization advice and cache controls.

  • New Database Parameter settings.

All V1.x advice has been placed in a seperate document now for V1.x customers.

The relevant document numbers in My Oracle Support are:


  • 560367.1 - Technical Best Practices for Oracle Utilities Application Framework Based Products

  • 856854.1 - V1 Addendum for Technical Best Practices for Oracle Utilities Application Framework Based Products

This document will be updated every 6 months or so and reposted. Hope the documentation helps you all out. I quite enjoyed doing the updates to this document in particular as it was the first whitepaper I wrote ages ago. I decided it was LONG overdue for an update. Interestingly I updated this document while recovering from a fractured arm over the last few weeks so this update willbe remembered by me for a while.

Hi, Thanks for the brilliant article, I dont usually leave messages but your blog inspired me!! I just had a look at one of those Apple Ipads and they look good, although the screen is huge I like it. I can see a lots of them needing support when the screen breaks :) Keep up the good work and look forward to more articles
