Oracle Warehouse Builder 11gR2
By David Allan-Oracle on Sep 01, 2009
Great news, today Oracle released the Linux x86 and x86-64 versions of 11gR2 for the Oracle Database which includes Warehouse Builder (see Oracle Database 11gR2 here). Nice to finally see all the hard work eventually come to fruition. This has been an interesting few years, through acquisitions, the tough economic times, the release went on sure and steadfast, hats off to all the development group. The OWB 11gR2 release has some substantial changes all round - from the user interface to the open mapping framework to the OBIEE integration to name a few. I love pushing the envelope (common idiom, see here) with tools and seeing what can be done with them and this release of OWB lets you do LOTS!
So where is the collateral?
Keep an eye open for new collateral as it is completed there is a lot of really useful functionality from cool new stuff to basic mapping functionality people have wanted for years! For a brief write up of new OWB functionality see the new Concepts manual here the OWB OTN page has some updates already here.
