Presentation: Introduction To Oracle Buffer Cache Internals

While Oracle’s buffer cache consists entirely of database blocks, the buffer headers and the supporting lists/chains are what makes the buffer cache a consistent topic of importance, interest, and challenge. Using creative visualizations, the presentation begins by introducing the key buffer cache structures followed by Craig role playing as a server process performing a variety of server process related activities. This naturally leads into when and how CPU is consumed and how the various buffer cache related wait events manifest, such as free buffer waits, read by other session, and cache buffer chain and LRU latch contention. Both new and experienced Oracle DBAs will find this presentation informative, practical, and entertaining.

Presentation: Unit of Work Time Based Performance Analysis

Most Oracle performance analysis is now time-based with the focus on «total time»: Time to process a SQL statement, a batch process, or the CPU consumed plus Oracle wait time that occurred over an interval. With just a couple twists, we can unit Operations Research queuing theory with Oracle time-based analysis, opening up an entirely new arena for advanced performance analysis. Starting with an AWR/Statspack report, this presentation will teach you how to a perform a Unit of Work Time Based Analysis, show examples of how Oracle systems behave surprisingly as operations research indicates, and introduce how to inject your performance solutions into the analysis.

Presentation: Is Oracle ADF Simpler than Oracle Forms?

Is there any tool out there that can match the productivity of Oracle Forms but deliver more modern UIs and a better architecture?

In this sessions we’ll explore Oracle ADF as a possible answer.

Using demos we’ll show how Oracle ADF aims to replicate the visual and declarative development nature of Oracle Forms, and explain some of the benefits of this development environment.

Come and see if Oracle ADF is the right platform for your next application development project.

Presentation: Cross Device Mobile App Development with Oracle ADF

IT organizations today have to support multiple mobile and smart phone and tablet devices. Mobilizing enterprise applications and data across these platforms traditionally requires major investments and duplication of development efforts and dramatically lowers the ROI of the mobile application initiative.

This session demonstrates how Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF support rapid development of mobile applications across multiple mobile device platforms. It also discusses how Oracle enterprise applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Siebel, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards applications can be «mobile enabled» with Oracle Fusion Middleware and the ADF Mobile platform.
