Oracle Database 12c

Exciting day today as Oracle Database 12c is released. You can find lots of information on the release on OTN here. With this release comes another milestone on Oracle's Data Integration roadmap - OWB is no longer shipped with the database. You will notice that the OWB documentation is no longer included with the Oracle Database documentation, you can compare and contrast the 11.2 and 12.1 documentation below.

OWB 11gR2 is still supported with Oracle Database 12c, you will need 11.2.0.3 plus at least CP2 which has been certified with Oracle Database 12c. The 11.2.0.4 release will wrapper this into one install.

OWB 11.2.0.2: Managing Use of Optional OWB Features

Most OWB users know that parts of Warehouse Builder are covered with the database license and othimageers require additional options (such as the Oracle Data Integrator Enterprise Edition license).

Warehouse Builder 11.2.0.2 adds the ability to disable optional feature groups. This lets you avoid the inadvertent use of most licensed features at the repository level. 

This capability is accessed through the 11.2.0.2 Repository Assistant. We’ll look at the basics here. There’s also a new whitepaper that details which features are in the different feature groups associated with licenses. Read on to find out more.

In Repository Assistant in 11.2.0.2, in Step 2 (“Choose Operation”), you will see a new task, “Manage Optional Features.” This is where you choose which features to enable or disable.

OWB 11gR2 Tip: Downloading and Installing Workflow Monitor 2.6.4

Oracle Workflow 2.6.4 is still used as an integral part of Warehouse Builder 11gR2—specifically, to support the use of OWB process flows. However, Workflow Monitor is not part of the OWB 11gR2 installation of Workflow. As a result, many users of OWB 11gR2 want to know where to download Workflow Monitor, and how to install Workflow Monitor to manage the workflow jobs OWB creates.

Workflow Monitor usable with OWB 11gR2 is available from the Oracle Database 10gR2 Companion CD, which you can download from OTN. A detailed installation walkthrough on Windows 32-bit follows. Other platforms should be similar.
