AT ORACLE: OTN Bulletin
Best Reads of 2009By Justin Kestelyn
Articles on Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle RMAN, and Oracle ADF top the list.
On the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) team, we always find it instructive to review what the community is reading. For that reason, one of our most important end-of-year traditions is to formulate and analyze a “most popular” list of technical articles published over the course of the previous year.
Note that the list below accounts for new articles only, rather than looking at recent views of popular articles published prior to 2009. For live links to these articles, see my blog post on this subject at www.bit.ly/UeivA. As noted, a few of the articles are from Oracle Magazine.
“Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control Release 5 on Oracle Database 11g and Linux,” by Mike Revitt
“High-Performance Oracle JDBC Programming,” by Yuli Vasiliev
“Oracle RMAN Backups: Pushing the ‘Easy’ Button,” by Porus Homi Havewala
“Scripting Oracle RMAN Commands,” by Arup Nanda (Oracle Magazine, September/October 2009)
“On Dynamic Sampling,” by Tom Kyte (Oracle Magazine, January/February 2009)
“Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control Architecture for Very Large Sites,” by Porus Homi Havewala
“Taking an Oracle ADF Application from Design to Reality,” by Chris Muir and Penny Cookson
Tom Kyte’s name will be perennially present on this annual list, I assure you.
“High Performance and Availability with Oracle RAC and PHP,” by John Lim
Oracle ADF Development Essentials, by John Stegeman
Even if none of these articles appeals to you, it’s always instructive to know what your peers are interested in. And if you’re an aspiring author, this list isn’t a bad source of ideas.
As always, we welcome your editorial proposals. You can see our author guidelines and submission procedures at oracle.com/technology/contact/otn_submit.html.
