Packt Enterprise has just published the first ever GoldenGate book:
High Availability (HA) has become an important factor in computer system design in recent years. Systems can't afford to be down, not even for a minute, as they may be mission critical, life supporting, regulatory, or the financial impact may be too great to bear. Oracle has played a major role in developing a number of HA solutions, one of which is Real Application Clusters (RAC). Oracle Streams is heavily integrated with RAC out of the box and requires no additional configuration. This is not true for GoldenGate, where the Manager process has to be made "RAC aware".
In this article by John P. Jeffries, author of Oracle GoldenGate Implementer's Guide, we learn how to configure GoldenGate in a RAC environment and explore the various components that effectively enable HA for data replication and integration.Read Oracle GoldenGate 11g: Configuration for High Availability in full
IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment is IBM's flagship J2EE application server platform. It implements the J2EE technology stack. This stack enables the WebSphere Application Server platform to execute user's Java enterprise applications that perform business functions. There are several roles to using this platform such as architect, developer, and administrator, to mention a few. Within the administrator role, in turn, there are several functions such as installation, performance, security, and so on.
In this article by Omar Siliceo, author of the book IBM WebSphere Application Server v7.0 Security, we will cover the following:
- The Enterprise Application Server infrastructure architecture view
- The WebSphere Application Server architecture view

Oracle Order Management is one of the most important parts of Oracle E-Business Suite. Using Oracle Order Management we can create and maintain different types of orders. These orders can be created in Oracle Order Management Suite as well as in some other front-desk application. We can integrate these applications with Oracle Order Management for keeping a controlled track of orders and proper business flow. Using Oracle Order Management, different types of orders can be created. These orders can be for inventory items as well as for services. Using Oracle Order Management, these orders can be reviewed and maintained in Order Management Workbench (Order Organizer).
In this article by Muneeb A. Siddiqui, author of Oracle EBS supply chain management R12, we will take a look at how to setup the Oracle Order Management.Read Setting Up Oracle Order Management in full

In the previous article, Microsoft Sharepoint 2010: List Management, we took a look at list management. This article explains how to manage them to provide an efficient way to store information and thus provide ECM.
In this article by Peter Ward, author of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 End User Guide: Business Performance Enhancement, we will cover the following:
- How to add content to a list
- Advanced list features
With this release of SharePoint 2010, one of Microsoft's goals is to bring Enterprise Content Management (ECM) to all users, rather than to a specific user group. The result is that there is a lot of functionality that was never available to users who were more familiar with network drives or e-mail exchange for collaboration. This article explains Lists. We view lists as a key SharePoint functionality for providing basic and complex architecting of corporate and workgroups' information.
In this article by Peter Ward, author of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 End User Guide: Business Performance Enhancement, you will gain knowledge of List Management and understand how to track information and collaborate with team members:
- List Management basics
- Creating lists
- Managing lists

Just as Microsoft's products have become the de facto standard with daily desktop tools such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, SharePoint is becoming the de facto standard web platform for team and company collaboration. There are other products that provide collaboration, but few integrate as seamlessly with a company's existing IT investments just as Office, Active Directory, Windows 7/Vista/XP, or SQL Server has, thus making the deployment process rather palatable to the IT department and workers within a company.
This article by Peter Ward, author of Microsoft SharePoint 2010 End User Guide: Business Performance Enhancement, outlines what SharePoint is not, what is special about SharePoint and why there is considerable value in using this technology, and the User Requirement Challenges that a deployment will cause.Read Microsoft Sharepoint 2010: Rules for End User Deployment in full
In this article, we'll turn mostly to something else—things that end users would be likely to do. Our primary tool for that will be Workplace XT (XT), though many of the same features are also available in Workplace "classic". Our primary motivation is to show concepts more than it is to present a tutorial for particular applications.
This article by William J. Carpenter, author of Getting Started with IBM FileNet P8 Content Manager, covers the following topics:
- An overview of the XT application
- Browsing and related operations
- XT entry templates
- Workflow interactions
- Document versioning
- Properties and security manipulation
- XT search interfaces
