Java Enhancements and Best Practices in Oracle Database 18
Nirmala Sundarappa and Kuassi Mensah, Oracle Corporation
Java developers, DBAs, and architects aim at designing and deploying highly performant, scalable, and available applications to meet cloud scale deployments and continuous availability. The new capabilities in Oracle Database 18 aim at fulfilling these requirements. This session shows how the latest enhancements in the Oracle JDBC driver, along with new UCP APIs, will improve the performance. It addresses how Java web applications can achieve extreme scalability to sustain large-scale applications through shared database architecture, and also discusses an intuitive solution to ease planned maintenance, i.e. JDBC driver handles Fast Application Notification (FAN) events, offering the simple and easy solution to achieve high availability for customers. Last but not least, this session discusses new security requirements and enhancements to connect to Oracle Database Service on Cloud.

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.

PL/SQL Programming for .NET Developers: Tips, Tricks, and Debugging
Christian Shay and Alex Keh, Oracle Corporation
.NET and Oracle programmers frequently work with PL/SQL, whether that means setting up a call to a stored procedure from a .NET program, executing a PL/SQL anonymous block, or writing and debugging PL/SQL stored procedure code. This session looks at leveraging PL/SQL from the point of view of a .NET developer and provides in-depth tips about how to configure and use the tightly integrated PL/SQL debugger in Visual Studio.

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.

Secure RESTful Services
Scott Spendolini, Sumner Technologies
There have been many conference presentations, books, and webinars on how to secure APEX applications. But most, if not all, never explore what an actual attack would look like or the damage it might cause. This session will demonstrate just that—actual Cross Site Scripting and SQL Injection attacks against APEX applications that do a whole lot more than print “hello, world.” Along with the demonstration, the session will cover how you can mitigate and prevent these types of attacks.

Infrastructure as Code: Running an Enterprise Kubernetes Cluster in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with Terraform
Erik Espinoza, Viscosity North America
This session will delve into using an “infrastructure as code” approach to deploy and manage a Kubernetes cluster in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with Terraform.
Kubernetes has become the go-to platform to manage and deliver solutions in the cloud. With all the power Kubernetes provides, it comes with a steep learning curve. With all the concepts to cover, it can be difficult to determine which parts are relevant and require attention when deciding to deploy a cluster into a cloud environment. In this session, I will explore the use of Terraform, a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. I will also cover an Oracle project called Terraform-Kubernetes-installer.
We will explore HA recommendations as well as tasks such as deploying and scaling up and down a Kubernetes cluster—all this with the ability to keep track of infrastructure changes though versioning.

CodeTalk 2018 - REST Database Links: Access Oracle Databases in The Cloud Using ORDS, REST, and JSON
Chris Saxon, Oracle 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.

Understanding and Optimizing Oracle Memory Serialization Access (Latches and Mutexes)
Craig Shallahamer, OraPub
Oracle memory serialization control is core to Oracle database operations. One of the most fascinating topics in Oracle internals and performance optimization is memory serialization. We will look at the circumstances in which serialization is used, how it works, how to influence its operation, and how to diagnose problems. It's a complex situation; in order to get the upper hand on serialization control, this presentation will explore the lock (a little), the latch (a lot), and the mutex (a whole lot). Topics will include: performance diagnosis, how Oracle implements latches and mutexes, and related internal algorithms. Special attention will be given to the library cache mutex operations. This is a practical, yet deep internals presentation filled with amazing discoveries about how Oracle works.
