External Tables in Oracle 10g/11g Database: Part 1

by Hector R. Madrid | June 2009 | Oracle

In this two-part article by Hector R. Madrid, we will learn about the External Tables in Oracle 10g/11g Database. When working in data warehouse environments, the ExtractionTransformationLoading (ETL) cycle frequently requires the user to load information from external sources in plain file format, or perform data transfers among Oracle database in a proprietary format. This requires the user to create control files to perform the load. As the format of the source data regularly doesn't fit the one required by the Data Warehouse, a common practice is to create stage tables that load data into the database and create several queries that perform the transformation from this point on, to take the data to its final destination.

Extending Your Structure and Search

by Marek Rogoziński Rafał Kuć | March 2013 | Open Source

Till now we've learned how to install, configure, and query our ElasticSearch cluster. We also prepared some more sophisticated mappings. We've also used aliasing to make querying easier and in addition to that we used routing to control where the data is placed. In this article by Rafal Kuc and Marek Rogozinski, authors of ElasticSearch Server, we will extend our knowledge of ElasticSearch by looking at how to index data that is not flat, how to handle geographical data, and how to deal with files. We will also learn how to distinguish the text fragment that was matched and how to implement commonly used autocomplete features. By the end of this article you will learn:

  • How to index data that is not flat

  • How to extend your index with additional data such as time-to-live and document identifier

  • How to handle highlighting

  • How to implement the autocomplete feature

  • How to handle files

Extending WordPress to the Mobile World

by Yuxian Eugene Liang | December 2012 | Open Source

In the last chapter we learned about how we can build mobile applications using PhoneGap. Now, we will continue from Chapter 4, Building Mobile Applications Using PhoneGap and extend it to work with our GeoPlaces WordPress website. By now, you should be able to see that JSON-APIs work as a form of "glue" that allows desktop websites (in our case, a WordPress website) to have bidirectional interaction with mobile apps.

We will first quickly go through jQuery Mobile, after which we will extend our PhoneGap app, created in Chapter 3, Extending WordPress Using JSON-API and Chapter 4, Building Mobile Applications Using PhoneGap.
