    Turbocharge Your PL/SQL Code with Bulk Processing
    Steven Feuerstein, Oracle Corporation

    This session focuses on how to turbocharge the performance of multi-row SQL statements executed from within a PL/SQL using FORALL and BULK COLLECT. These features have been around since Oracle 8i, but many developers still don't use them or only scratch the surface of what is possible.
    The bulk processing webinar will focus on why these features were needed and how they work. Steven will start with simple examples and syntax and drill down into all nuances, including the LIMIT clause for BULK COLLECT and the SAVE EXCEPTIONS, INDICES OF, and VALUES OF clauses for FORALL.
    After attending this webinar, you will be able to both create new programs built around these features and also redesign existing programs safely to improve performance.

    The Quick-Start Guide to ADF: The Why and the How
    Frédéric Desbiens, Oracle Corporation 

    The longest journey starts with one step, but sometimes it's difficult to know in which direction. This session is an accelerated guide as to WHY ADF might be important to you, WHAT it is, and HOW you develop using it. This is the definitive guide (based on show-and-tell and not just PowerPoint) to getting the right knowledge to make an informed decision on Oracle ADF.

    APEX 5 Page Designer
    Scott Wesley, Sage Computing

    Jumpstart your learning curve to the new release within an hour. 

    APEX 5 arrives with a bunch of new features, but most of them revolve around or pertain to the exciting new web-based IDE called "Page Designer.”

    APEX developers may take a while to learn the ins and outs of this remarkable new, feature-rich, truly interactive development interface. It replaces the APEX 4.x tree view, which in comparison now feels like a minor hybrid of the original component view. Forms programmers might take particular interest in how they can transition to APEX by embracing certain features of the new Page Designer.

    Here are four key phrases to pique your interest:

    • Enhanced tree-based view 
    • Drag-and-drop Grid Layout Editor  
    • Wizardless Property Editor 
    • Comprehensive new toolbar with undo/redo

    Within the hour, Scott will demonstrate how Page Designer works and, more importantly, show you how APEX 5 will improve your productivity by an order of magnitude.

    Applications Design: The Dashboard of the Company
    Marcelo Burgos, Architects Express

    Why is the control board of the company the ideal mobile application?

    1. Significant user intervention is not required.
    2. The application must show us what we are looking for, regardless of our location or time.
    3. Ideally, the dashboard works on the basis of Business Intelligence data, independent of transactional systems.
    4. It requires special security conditions.

    More than any other application, the dashboard is a beautiful piece of software that displays the state of the indicators requested by the end user. Don’t miss this webinar, where you will discover the tips for what to do in the time that elapses until the indicators are ready to show the application data in a fashionable way. As we work with APEX, we will focus on improving the interface through subtle changes in the templates, and especially in the design and use of the images. In the midst of the transition between APEX 4 and APEX 5, we will analyze the graphic possibilities and alternatives available.

    Ten (Other) Top Tips for Improving PL/SQL Performance
    Steven Feuerstein, Oracle Corporation

    Bulk processing (FORALL and BULK COLLECT), along with the function result cache, are the "big ticket" items when it comes to performance optimization with PL/SQL. But there's still more we can do to tweak our code for even better response times for our users. This third webast in the series starts with the automatic compiler optimization, showcases the extraordinary speediness of PGA data manipulation (a.k.a., package variables), and demonstrates the effect of the simple NOCOPY hint. We finish up with an introduction to pipelined table functions and some thoughts on optimizing your algorithms.

    By the Poolside: JDeveloper ADF Application Module Pooling Explained
    Frédéric Desbiens, Oracle Corporation
