2018 CodeTalk Series: Common Database Development Disasters
Connor McDonald, Oracle Corporation

The 2018 CodeTalk Series webinars are co-sponsored by ODTUG and IOUG. 

Developers are under increasing pressure to deliver solutions faster. So often they are encouraged to “just start coding,” and are not given time to stop and think about the best solution to a problem. In this session, I'll take a look at what the results of that can be—failure, delays, and poor performance in your database application implementations. We’ll look at the things done wrong over and over again and how to avoid making the same mistakes yourself.

Property Graphs 101: How to Get Started with Property Graphs on the Oracle Database
Arthur Dayton, Vlamis Software Solutions, Inc.

Oracle Database 12c now includes property graphs—a powerful feature that goes beyond relational to analyze relationships in big data, such as finding the most influential people in a social network, discovering patterns of fraud within financial transaction data, or recommending products based on what similar customers are buying.

Don’t have the slightest clue on how to get started with and use property graphs? Good news! In this fast-paced webinar, Arthur Dayton, from Vlamis Software Solutions, will show you exactly how to create, load, and use property graphs on the Oracle Database. We will cover how to create a property graph using Java or PLSQL, how to load data into a property graph from existing database tables, how to create an in-memory instance of a property graph, how to run algorithms such as page rank against a property graph, how to use PGQL (an sql-like language for property graphs) to query a graph, and ways to visualize graph data.

Why Your Monitoring Tools Aren’t Enough to Manage Hyperion
Ed DeLise, datAvail

The Oracle Hyperion suite of products has many moving parts. Enjoying consistently strong performance that enables your end users to do their jobs without interruption doesn’t just happen; it requires purposeful performance management. All companies have monitoring tools in place to keep a pulse on their systems, but when it comes to Oracle Hyperion, it’s not enough. In this webinar, we’ll show you how you can proactively manage your Oracle Hyperion footprint by leveraging valuable information that is hidden below the surface of the software. We’ll also discuss functionality beyond monitoring that is critical to keeping your system running as you expect it, and work through strategies that will enable you to identify your performance management gaps and fill them with valuable solutions including log management, performance testing, automation, auditing of changes, and other capabilities that your teams can leverage to proactively reduce the risk of performance disruptions.

Creating Custom Visualization with Oracle Data Visualization SDK 
Arthur Dayton, Vlamis Software Solutions, Inc.

One of the great new features of the Data Visualization option with Oracle Analytics is the ability to create your own custom visualizations with an SDK provided by Oracle. In the past, with the Answers interface, we had to inject custom code into OBI using narrative views. Getting custom visualizations to interact with the delivered ones, or print, was nearly impossible. Now, with the SDK, we can easily create custom visualizations that participate as first-class citizens in the UI and can interact with native visualizations and controls as well as print and export. In this webinar, Arthur Dayton, from Vlamis Software Solutions, will show attendees what’s possible with the new SDK and give tips and best practices for getting started with your own custom visualizations.

CodeTalk 2018 - REST Database Links: Access Oracle Databases in The Cloud Using ORDS, REST, and JSON
Chris SaxonOracle Corporation and Robert Marz, its-people

The 2018 CodeTalk Series webinars are co-sponsored by ODTUG and IOUG.

This talk covers a real-world solution that recreates database links using ORDS, REST, and JSON. It breaks the limits of database links by loosely coupling two databases. The complexity is completely hidden from users and developers. Modern technologies such as REST and JSON offer elegant ways to couple databases without fixed dependencies. The protocol http(s) is able to surmount the corporate firewall and query databases in the cloud. A transparent layer made of table functions, views, and instead-of triggers can be placed over the connection.

This talk introduces REST, JSON, and ORDS very briefly. After the stage is set, we explore how to query auto-rest enabled tables from PL/SQL and process the JSON documents. Finally a view with an instead-of trigger is built that can be used by the application developers. A generator that produces all necessary objects will be shown. The generator can integrate into SQL Developer.

The presentation includes a live demo.
