After 15 years in IT working with Oracle and Linux on a day to day basis as a DBA, Sys Admin and programmer these are some of the solutions to problems that I have found. For the most part they are either things that I had to figure out because Google couldn’t. Some are references that I use from time to time.
For 10 years I’ve been working with Oracle Application Server. It has gone from a webserver that could run PL/SQL, to everything but the kitchen sink. Now its called Fusion Middleware and the latest release has been bundled in a product called SOA Suite. There’s a lot in there to learn and figure out, but mostly if you need to create a SOA environment, Oracle has a pretty good product and everything you need to do it.
If you have a problem with Oracle drop me a line at mark at markcallen dot com.
