Oracle Fusion Middleware Summer Camps in Lisbon
Last week Link Consulting was present in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Summer Camps in Lisbon.
As always this event was an excellent way of getting hands-on advanced training in several of Fusion Middleware technologies as well as getting to meet SOA Community members from all over the world.
In total 7 Link collaborators were present, having at least one person in each of the seminars. Here’s a brief summary of our impressions on the sessions:
BPM Suite 11g Advanced Training by David Read
This was an excellent training for people wanting to further their knowledge on the BPM Suite. David Read is an excellent speaker with deep knowledge of the BPM Suite giving us insight on the inner workings of the suite as well as answering all our questions. Developing a PoC with just a scenario description instead of a step-by-step tutorial was a great way to really force us to think on how to implement an end-to-end BPM solution.
ADF 11g Advanced Training by Grant Ronald and Frank Nimphius
This was a great training to further improve ADF knowledge with two excellent speakers, Frank Nimphius and Grant Ronald, presented several ADF topics giving more insight on the technology. In this training there were some presentations from the attendees showing real use cases of ADF, from which we highlight ADF Mobile usage examples, and one application featuring performance bottlenecks in ADF.
WebCenter Portal Advanced Training by Flavius Sana and Angelo Santagata
The training was supposed to be about advanced topics, however once the attendees lack of knowledge, the training focus on Oracle WebCenter Portal Fundamentals. It was a great opportunity to get the firsts insights and real experience with the framework. Angelo and Flavius advices and best practices were very useful to enable us to address a future project with success.
WebLogic 12c Training by Cosmin Tudor and Silviu Leahu
In this session we were introduced to several advanced features of weblogic and were given the chance to experience them through practical labs. Particularly Oracle Coherence was presented in great detail giving us a better understanding of its potential in scenarios where high availability and computing power are required. The troubleshooting labs using JRockit Mission Control were also very useful to learn how such utility can be used to diagnose hard to find problems in running applications and with minimal impact to the application server performance (important in production environments).
