Back to OBIEE 11g Land

Easter was fun and hugely successful for us on the Sailing front. Number one son was top 10 British sailor and Number One Daughter was third females, winning selection to represent Great Britain at the Europeans Championships (EUROSAF). I hope yours was as good.
Anyway, back to work and here’s all the OBIEE and Oracle stuff we have found useful this week.

Kevin McGinley says, “In Part 1 of this post, I wrote about why you might want to add third-party visualization capabilities for OBIEE and gave a brief explanation how to setup one approach: calling java visualization engines.  In Part 2 I walked through a detailed example of how to actually do this using a visualization engine called Flot.  In this post I will do the same thing for a visualization engine called D3.”

5. Several Methods for Structured Big Data Computation

This blog opens with, “All data can only have the existence value by getting involved in the computation to create value. The big data makes no exception. The computational capability on structural big data determines the range of practical applications of big data. In this article, I’d like to introduce several commonest computation methods: API, Script, SQL, and SQL-like languages.”

6. OBIEE – Installing patch set on Windows

Boris Dahav says, “The process is very similar to the previous patchset installations. I created it for myself, mostly for comfortable copy/paste of command lines.”

He then talks us through how to do it.

Here, Brendan Tierney writes his second part of a 2 part blog.  He says, “In reality there are 3 blog posts on installing ORE. The third and next blog post will be on a particular issue you might encounter on a Windows server and how you can over come the issue. In the previous blog post I outlined the steps needed to install ORE on the database server and on the client machine. Click here to go to this post. In this blog post I will show you how to setup a schema for ORE and how to get connected to the schema using ORE.”
