Python for Oracle Developers

If you know Oracle and have been suitably intrigued by my many mentions of Python but not sufficiently so to actually do anything about it then take a look at this.

It's an introduction to the Python programming language for Oracle professionals by Catherine Devlin, my latest favourite Oracle blogger. I'm going to be passing out copies of it to my colleagues on Monday.

Oracle Warehouse Builder - Woops

This blog post recently popped up in my feed reader and doesn't look too smart if you ask me.

It also explains a couple of phone calls I got from work, even though I'm off on paternity leave. They were slightly perturbed because Oracle Warehouse Builder had stopped working. Literally just stopped. Apparently when they started up the OWB client it displayed the splash screen and then seemed to hang. According to the smashing chaps at AMIS this is because the cryptography code shipped as part of the application had expired. Follow their advice and everything will be fine again.

Needless to say there isn't a mention of this on the OWB home page. There's probable a note on Metalink but that site isn't publicly available so I can't link to it. One day software companies will start to understand the web.
