Keeping up with the Jones’: The Upgrade Process to OBIEE 12c
Linda Zheng, Lower Colorado River Authority and ACE.png Michelle Kolbe, Red Pill Analytics

It’s true that the upgrade process from OBIEE 11g to 12c is more simple than previous upgrades. However, it’s not all roses as we learned in the process of upgrading a large OBIEE environment at LCRA. We’ll walk through the steps to upgrade to OBIEE 12c from 11g. We’ll discuss using some of the new features of 12c including Baseline Validation Tool to check for differences in environments, import service instance and the BI migration tool. Most importantly, we’ll talk about all of the lessons learned from experiences with this 12c upgrade.

2017 CodeTalk Series - Six Reasons Why You Will Get Addicted to SQLcl Scripting
Chris Saxon, Oracle Corporation and Robert Marz and Sabine Heimsath, its-people GmbH

The 2017 CodeTalk Series Webinars are Co-sponsored by ODTUG and IOUG. 

SQLcl is ready to replace the reliable but somewhat outdated SQL*Plus as the new command line interface of the database. The most exciting new feature of SQLcl is scripting: Batch scripts can now be written in languages such as JavaScript, Python, or Perl. This means a veritable cornucopia of options, many of which are not obvious at first sight. 
After a brief introduction to SQLcl, we will show many real-world examples that demonstrate the new possibilities. All examples are available for download to allow for further tests and exploration. This presentation provides many in-depth live demos.

 Extreme Calc Manager
Ludovic De Paz and Ron Moore, TopDown Consulting

Calc Manager is at the center of Oracle’s EPM suite. It’s the place to develop logic for Essbase, HFM, and Planning on-premise or in the cloud. It’s chock full of advanced features, and it’s quite a task to master all of them. That’s where we come in. Join Ludovic De Paz, TopDown Consulting senior manager, and Ron Moore, TopDown Consulting solutions architect, for a deep dive into some of the more advanced features of Calc Manager.

We will focus on features that save time and/or allow developers to do things they otherwise couldn’t do and explore:

  • How to take advantage of Calc Manager’s modular nature to develop rules and rule sets quickly and benefit from reusability. 
  • All types of variables and some advanced variable tricks. 
  • How to troubleshoot using the debugger, error messages, and logs (especially with the cloud). 
  • How to use custom-defined templates to adapt your rules to different outlines and applications. 
  • How to use custom-defined functions.

This session promises to satisfy the most geeky of you, and with several real-life stories and demos, you will be able to take your business rules to the next level.

 Agile Testing with The APEX Test Automation Framework
Simon Hunt, MOD

Delivering working, tested APEX applications frequently, can only be achieved with automated browser tests that often require specialist programming skills. Augmenting an Agile team with specialist automation testers reduces the flexibility of the team and increases the cost and time of development. APEX by its very nature, contains an up-to-date user interface map that documents all the components of an application, which when combined with an action and data can be used to generate an automated test script. The APEX Test Automation Framework (ATAF) is an open source APEX project that requires no specialist knowledge and can be used to build highly maintainable automated browser scripts. ATAF uses only documented and supported APIs and best of all, it’s written in APEX! so, it can be adapted, supported and maintained by the development team adopting it. 
This Webinar covers the theory, installation, real world examples and basic use of ATAF and provides an opportunity to ask questions directly to the creator and developer of ATAF.
