Defining a Data Model for Spatial Data Storage

by Simon Greener Siva Ravada | October 2013 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

In this article by Simon Greener and Siva Ravada, the authors of Applying and Extending Oracle Spatial, we provide a SQL schema and functions that facilitate the storage, update, and query of collections of spatial features in an Oracle database.

Oracle Spatial and Graph provides a SQL schema and functions that facilitate the storage, update, and query of collections of spatial features in an Oracle database. Oracle Spatial and Graph is the new name for the feature formerly known as Oracle Spatial. In this article, we refer to this feature as Oracle Spatial for the sake of simplicity. We also focus exclusively on spatial feature of Oracle Spatial and Graph in this article. Oracle Spatial mainly consists of the following:

  • A schema (MDSYS derived from Multi-Dimensional System) that defines the storage, syntax, and semantics of the supported geometric (both vector and raster) data types
  • A spatial indexing mechanism for faster querying and retrieval
  • Operators, functions, and procedures for performing spatial analysis and query operations
  • A persistent topology data model for working with data about nodes, edges, and faces in a topology
  • A network data model for modeling and working with spatial networks
  • A GeoRaster data type and associated functions that let you store, index, query, analyze, and deliver raster data

Using Events, Interceptors, and Logging Services

by Fabio Mazanatti Nunes William Markito Oliveira | October 2013 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

In this article written by Fabio Mazanatti Nunes and William Markito Oliveira authors of the book, Getting Started with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: Developer's Guide, we are going to briefly introduce two concepts of Java EE development: interceptors and events. We will also see how to integrate these concepts with WebLogic services. It's a common misunderstanding that these technologies are complex and difficult to use, but after working with examples of this article, it will become clear that they are powerful yet easy to use. Along the way, we will cover WebLogic Server's logging services, which shows us how to configure the framework, how to write messages to it, and how to read them using the administration console.

Configuring and Managing the Mailbox Server Role

by Michael Van Horenbeeck Peter De Tender | September 2013 | Cookbooks Enterprise Articles Microsoft

In this article by Michael Van Horenbeeck and Peter De Tender, authors of the book Microsoft Exchange 2013 Cookbook, you will learn how to perform the tasks necessary to set up, configure, and maintain the Mailbox Server Role, including:

  • Creating and removing mailbox databases
  • Mounting and dismounting databases
  • Moving database files to another location
  • Configuring circular logging
  • Creating and removing mailboxes
  • Managing resource mailboxes
  • Configuring mailbox size limits
  • Managing personal archives
  • Assigning mailbox permissions
  • Moving mailboxes to another database
  • Managing Public Folders
  • Configuring send and receive connectors
  • Configuring Accepted domains
  • Configuring message size limits

Over the years, the Mailbox Server Role has evolved into something more than just a place where mail data is stored. Although its primary role remains storing and managing mail-related data, it inherited large chunks of what used to be the Hub Transport server and Unified Messaging server. This shows that the Mailbox Server role in Exchange 2013 resembles an Exchange 2010 multi-role server in many ways.

Implementation Case Study

by Andrew Bell Luis Augusto Weir | September 2013 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

This article by Luis Augusto Weir and Andrew Bell, the authors of the book Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation, introduces a case study that will be further developed throughout the article. It will introduce a fictitious company that is looking to implement SOA Governance following a maturity assessment and a SOA Roadmap elaboration. The case study will help you to understand the concepts being presented in this article, as well as how to apply them to implement Oracle SOA Governance in an easily digestible form by illustrating the typical problems faced by organizations introducing governance, and how the benefits derived from its inception must be measurable and tangible.

The case study is based on actual scenarios experienced by the authors and therefore should provide a realistic view of the key challenges faced when implementing SOA Governance, and how they can be overcome.

Reporting Based on SSRS

by Kamalakannan Elangovan | September 2013 | Cookbooks Enterprise Articles

In this article, by Kamalakannan Elangovan, the author of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Reporting Cookbook, we will understand and acquire the skills necessary to be good at reporting based on SSRS.

This article will cover the following recipes:

  • Creating a matrix report
  • Creating a multicolumn matrix report
  • Creating a column chart
  • Creating a line chart

The legacy reporting system in Dynamics AX had very limited capabilities of how you can render data. Something as simple as adding an image and placing it right was a mammoth task, while things such as graphs and charts were not imaginable. SSRS takes away this pain and makes it easy to represent data in different formats. SSRS reports help create easier and convenient representation of data graphically that is easy for the end user to assimilate. This article will discuss recipes that cover the different kinds of controls other than the table layout discussed so far that can be used to represent data, such as matrix, charts, and gauges. The reader will be familiarized with the different controls and how they can be put to use in reports through this article.
