Don’t be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.


I Thought it will be nice to share this quotation before start talking about Oracle OTN Tour – MENA TOUR 2014. 
Fir the people who dosen’t know anything about this Tour it’s happened for the first time in middle-east, 
“Courtesy of the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and the ARABOUG, the inaugural 2014 OTN MENA Tour brings a star-studded cast, consisting of some of the world’s best Oracle ACEs, ACE Directors and Rock Star Speakers to the region. The tour aims at sharing cutting edge knowledge and independent research in the MENA region, by accomplished Oracle experts from all over the world”
Covered the following countries :-
  • Tunisia
  • KSA- Saudi Arabia
  • Dubai.
Link Here.
Picture for the speaker getting ready for the event :-
Introduction about the Speaker :-
I will talking about Dubai, The event location was In Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa. started at 8 Am – 5 pm During this time Oracle experts start sharing their knowledge and  chatting with them.
Different Topics , Different Speaker But it’s Only About Oracle, Performance tips, I/O , 12c , Fusion middleware , RAC 12c …
I spoke about Oracle Fusion middleware high Availability and crowd was really amazing.

 

I will do it again for sure Enshalla.

Thank you

Change AdminServer Port Using WLST.SH

Sometimes AdminServer not working Regarding to Wrong configuration or using Wrong Port which mean No Console will be available so is this mean delete domain and Configure it again !!!

Absolutely  Not  When you install Weblogic any Version Oracle Provide you with Command Line Utility to administrate weblogic, what you can do it using Console can be done with this tool.

change to weblogic-directory/common/bin
./wlst.sh

Now follow the below Steps to change port :

wls:/offline> readDomain (‘/u01/app/fmw/domains/IDDomains’)
wls:/offline/IDDomains> cd (‘Server’)
wls:/offline/IDDomains/Server> ls ()

Choose your Server Here

wls:/offline/IDDomains/Server> cd (‘AdminServer’)
wls:/offline/IDDomains/Server/AdminServer> ls ()

Search for Old Port ListenPort 

wls:/offline/IDDomains/Server/AdminServer> set (‘ListenPort’,New Port)
wls:/offline/IDDomains/Server/AdminServer> updateDomain ()
wls:/offline/IDDomains/Server/AdminServer> exit () 

Done you can now Test your new port
http://Server-ip:/console

MOLAP, ROLAP And HOLAP

I would like to share this article that i found recenly on internet talking about Online Analytic Processing By John Here

Cubes in a data warehouse are stored in three different modes. A relational storage model is called Relational Online Analytical Processing mode or ROLAP, while a Multidimensional Online Analytical processing mode is called MOLAP. When dimensions are stored in a combination of the two modes then it is known as Hybrid Online Analytical Processing mode or HOLAP.

MOLAP 

This is the traditional mode in OLAP analysis. In MOLAP data is stored in form of multidimensional cubes and not in relational databases. The advantages of this mode is that it provides excellent query performance and the cubes are built for fast data retrieval. All calculations are pre-generated when the cube is created and can be easily applied while querying data. The disadvantages of this model are that it can handle only a limited amount of data. Since all calculations have been pre-built when the cube was created, the cube cannot be derived from a large volume of data. This deficiency can be bypassed by including only summary level calculations while constructing the cube. This model also requires huge additional investment as cube technology is proprietary and the knowledge base may not exist in the organization.

ROLAP  

The underlying data in this model is stored in relational databases. Since the data is stored in relational databases this model gives the appearance of traditional OLAPs slicing and dicing functionality. The advantages of this model is it can handle a large amount of data and can leverage all the functionalities of the relational database. The disadvantages are that the performance is slow and each ROLAP report is an SQL query with all the limitations of the genre. It is also limited by SQL functionalities. ROLAP vendors have tried to mitigate this problem by building into the tool out-of-the-box complex functions as well as providing the users with an ability to define their own functions.

HOLAP  

HOLAP technology tries to combine the strengths of the above two models. For summary type information HOLAP leverages cube technology and for drilling down into details it uses the ROLAP model.

Comparing the use of MOLAP, HOLAP and ROLAP

The type of storage medium impacts on cube processing time, cube storage and cube browsing speed. Some of the factors that affect MOLAP storage are:

Cube browsing is the fastest when using MOLAP. This is so even in cases where no aggregations have been done. The data is stored in a compressed multidimensional format and can be accessed quickly than in the relational database. Browsing is very slow in ROLAP about the same in HOLAP. Processing time is slower in ROLAP, especially at higher levels of aggregation.

MOLAP storage takes up more space than HOLAP as data is copied and at very low levels of aggregation it takes up more room than ROLAP. ROLAP takes almost no storage space as data is not duplicated. However ROALP aggregations take up more space than MOLAP or HOLAP aggregations.

All data is stored in the cube in MOLAP and data can be viewed even when the original data source is not available. In ROLAP data cannot be viewed unless connected to the data source.

MOLAP can handle very limited data only as all data is stored in the cube.

unpack.sh Error -name=Value

The pack command creates a template archive (.jar) file that contains a snapshot of either an entire domain or a subset of a domain. You can use a template that contains a subset of a domain to create a Managed Server domain directory hierarchy on a remote machine.

The unpack command Creates a full domain or a subset of a domain used for a Managed Server domain directory on a remote machine. You may use unpack only with a template compatible with your current installation. The template can be any of the following:

  •  A domain template provided by BEA and packaged with your current installation
  •  A domain template created using the Domain Template Builder or WLST Offline
  •  A domain template created using the pack command
  •  A Managed Server template created using the pack command. A Managed Server template, by default, contains only the files necessary for creating a Managed Server domain directory.
You Can Check Oracle Documentation here for more information about the above commands.
When Trying to use unpack command with the below command:

./unpack.sh -domain=/u01/app/oracle/domains/IDMDomains -template=/u01/shared/IDMdomains.jar

The below error appear :

ERROR !!! ./unpack.sh -name=Value Missing

The Solution is simple :

-template attribute should come first. 

./unpack.sh  -template=/u01/shared/IDMdomains.jar -domain=/u01/app/oracle/domains/IDMDomains

Start Managed Server Failed With "Access not allowed for subject: principals=[]"

When Trying to Start Managed Server From Admin Console it’s Failed with

weblogic.management.NoAccessRuntimeException: Access not allowed for subject: principals=[], on ResourceType: Application Action: write, Target: Deployed”

After Check Everything and Configuration i found the following :

  • My Admin Server Already have More than one managed Server : SOA, ODI , BAM.
  • SOA and ODI Using the Same Port which is 8001 Which caused Conflict.

I Changed SOA Port to Work On 8003 From Admin Server Console. Like the Below

Oracle SOA Installation on Solaris 11.1

Another Post Describe how to install Oracle SOA, Steo by Step To Install Oracle SOA and Extend Admin Server.

As Usual you can download this document From SlideShare.
