Oracle BI Publisher is available !!!

Hi Everyone,

I am happy to announce that Oracle BI Publisher is released, although I admit that this is almost a week old news now and I am sure some of you may have already known this by now from the BI Publisher homepage in OTN or from other sources. My sincere apologies for the delay here.

Thank you Tim for helping me to get back into this blog membership and being patient to allow me put this word out. My activity in the blog has been so less in the past that I am as good as a new member here. When I tried to login last week, I was greeted with this message -

"Sorry, you do not have the privileges necessary to access the page you requested. This system is available to Oracle Employees only. Oracle Employees who would like to request a blog account should click here."

So I had to start all over and get a fresh access created. Thanks to Tim and Phil from IT support for helping me with this. I will now make sure to use this space more often and share more features, tips and tricks.

Oracle BI Publisher was GA on May 19th and you can get the download, documentation, certification matrix and release notes here at the BI Publisher home page in OTN. Here is a quick snapshot of new features in this release. The download is also available at Oracle Software Delivery Cloud site. The documentation page has also been given a fresh new structure where in the left navigation you will notice "Task" and "Books" as two menu items. The task will provide quick reference to role based activities under different sub menu items such as "View & Publish", "Design Reports" etc. The "Books" menu will take you to the complete set of books. You can select Administrator's guide, or Developer's guide, Data Modelling Guide, Report Designer's guide and User's Guide for BI Publisher here. If you are looking for any feature, and do not find information under "Tasks" then check for the same under "Books" or use the search option.

Stay tuned for more updates on new features. Wish you have a good time exploring the new features!!

Rather alot of our dinosaurs are missing ...

One of my favourite movies as a child growing up in deepest darkest West Sussex, England where is snowed 300 days a years and I had to walk 3 miles uphill both ways to school :0) A classic kids movie full of spies, slapstick and silly moments; if you have young'uns, it's well worth digging out. 

Our dinosaurs? Well since our move to another new blogging platform we have lost quite a lot of the examples files we posted in support of blog posts. Suffice to say, I do not have time to proactively check every post and there are so many that Im having to check blog post comments to see who is shouting about missing content the most.

I at least have a way to go find the content now and the folks screaming for the check print example will find it restored in about an hour. If you find other content you need and its missing please let me know in the comments and I'll do my best to get them back.
