KEYNOTE: The Best Oracle Database12c New Features

This presentation discusses which Oracle 12c new features should be investigated for use. Most of the features covered will be related to the DBA, but there will also be a few outside that realm that focus on the developer.  Simple examples (such as a quick example using pluggable databases) will be included to show the basic functionality of the new features, including:

  • Invisible columns
  • Multiple indexes on the same column
  • Adaptive Execution Plans
  • Runaway query management
  • Change Table Compression at import time
  • Creating views as tables
  • Online Move Partition
  • Partial Indexes for partitioned tables
  • Pluggable databases
  • Enhanced DDL Online
  • Automatic Diagnostics Repository
  • Enhanced Security Features

DEVELOPER TRACK: Bring Your Ipads (Because You’re Gonna Build a Mobile APEX App in 1 Hour)

Building mobile applications has become a very hot topic in the IT world. Users are increasingly demanding access to corporate applications via their mobile devices. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) articles have been increasingly featured in technology publications. New languages, development tools and skill sets along with the decisions of what mobile platforms to support can make the entry into mobile application development very difficult for many organizations. A new technology, however, makes decisions about mobile development much easier: JQuery Mobile. Oracle Application Express integrates very easily with JQuery Mobile and this combination can be used to create mobile applications that are supported on a wide range of mobile devices relatively simple.  This presentation will walk attendees through the steps of building a mobile application using Oracle Application Express. Attendees are encouraged to bring an iPad (or other mobile device) to actively participate and see the final results of their work.

DEVELOPER TRACK: Creating Custom PDF Reports with APEX 4.2.2

Oracle Application Express (APEX) provides several reporting options, allowing developers and users to quickly generate and view reports on data stored in the Oracle database. Users export their report data in PDF format, provided they have an external print-rendering engine configured with their APEX instance. With Oracle Application Express 4.2.2, the configuration has been simplified by building the PDF rendering functionality right into the APEX Listener. In this session we will show you how to configure PDF printing and demonstrate how you can create PDF reports with fully customized report layouts using standard XSL-FO layout tools, like Altova Stylevision and Stylus Studio.

Marc and his team are responsible for features such as the development of Mobile Web Applications with APEX, Reporting and Charting, Tabular Forms, Oracle Forms to APEX conversion and integration with Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher. Marc has a Master’s degree in computer science from the University of Applied Sciences in Wedel, Germany.

 

DEVELOPER TRACK: Tagging, Encoding, and Encrypting with RMAN

Tagging, encoding, and encrypting with RMAN allows Oracle DBAs not only to secure database backups, but also to customize them in order to provide an intelligent repository, with the ability to attain faster restores, comprehensive recovery, and optimizing throughput for all RMAN operations, while guaranteeing the privacy and confidentiality of the backup contents.  This session will reveal top techniques to encode, tag and encrypt RMAN backups with a comparative benchmark on Linux, Windows, and Solaris systems through custom RMAN scripts supplied.  The session will also demonstrate how tagging and encoding can optimize channel usage and minimize the Mean Time to Recover (MTTR). This session covers releases Oracle10g through Oracle12c.
