Just a quick note about the Oracle Database 11g Interactive Quick Reference That was released today to the public. This Interactive Quick Reference, created by Oracle University and the Server Technology Curriculum group, is your Essential Guide to Oracle Database 11g Release 2. This interactive quick reference includes an architecture diagram, a comprehensive list of background processes and an extensive list of DBA views organized by product feature areas.
Nicely done! Wish the columns in the DBA views had comments though.Comments Off on Oracle Database 11g Interactive Quick Reference | Filed in Oracle | Tags: 11g, reference
Back in early October, Justin blogged about a new project called “OTN, Special Edition”. He also mentioned that it might be called “MyOTN – Beta Edition”.
…Imagine a completely RSS-based version of OTN that allows you to filter your view based on tag (topic) or contributor, for Website content as well as discussion forum threads… Think of it as an “interactive” search process, with the relevant keywords being supplied to you, instead of the other way around.
That’s how Justin described the new project. As a teaser, he posted three low resolution screenshots and did not provide a link to the new OTN site.
Well, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the “OTN, Special Edition” demo URL. I will not publish the URL because it is not hosted on Oracle.com and it will most likely change when OTN goes public with its Special Edition. But, I have recorded a screencast of the new OTN site. I have also taken a few high resolution screenshots. All I can say is that it is really cool.
