Just had another holiday at the seaside, where my daughter was competing in a Youth National Championships, and achieved Bronze Medal. Therefore I am a bit late with the blog, so on with the show…
Blogs of the week
In this part, Boris Dahav talks about how to remove column from analysis with column selector or prompt. He says, “That means, selecting a column I don’t want to present (or actually influence the analysis at all). Why do I want such a stupid thing? When working with dynamic columns, I want the ability to control the number of columns. So if the user wants only 3 columns, out of possible 5, only 3 columns would appear in the analysis. The other 2 columns will not show.”
Pete Bunning writes, “Carrying on from my post on installing the ODI Lineage components, today I’ll look at exporting the RPD and Web Catalog to text files.”
Pete says, “As a sometime ETL coder I love the Oracle Merge statement. The ability to both insert and update in a single DML statement is great, and also gets around that age-old development question of which goes first the “insert” or the “update”? A bit like chicken and egg, but with a more discernible answer, the answer is of course it depends!”
Jeff Smith answers some FAQ’s on the next update of SQL Developer.
Kashinathan says, “The Internet of Things (IoT) is a fast emerging network of IP-connected devices and the communication (transfer of data) that occurs amid these devices without any human interface. IoT devices utilizes wireless sensor networks, control systems, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the Internet to interact with external environment.”
He goes on to give examples, such as thermostats, cars, electronic appliances, lights in household and commercial environments, alarm clocks, speaker systems and vending machines.
