30 Jan 2017 New Product Launch: Oracle Database Programming Interface for C (ODPI-C) [60308]
By Christopher Jones, January 30th, 2017

Christopher blogs, "Oracle released a great new GitHub project - Oracle Database Programming Interface for C. It sits on top of OCI and offers an alternative programming experience.

  • ODPI-C is a C library that simplifies the use of common Oracle Call Interface (OCI) features for Oracle Database drivers and user applications.

ODPI-C's goal is to expose common OCI functionality in a readily consumable way to the C or C++ developer. OCI's API is extremely flexible and is highly efficient. It gives a lot of fine-grained control to the developer and has a very wide range of use cases. ODPI-C is also flexible but is aimed primarily at language driver creators. These creators are programming within the confines of a scripting language's type system and semantics. The languages often expose simplified data access to users through cross-platform, 'common-denominator' APIs. Therefore it makes sense for ODPI-C to provide easy to use functionality for common data access, while still allowing the power of Oracle Database to be used..."

If you haven't yet, check out this post on the Voice of User Experience (VoX) blog, 'Wearables, IoT push Oracle's emerging tech development.'

Enterprise use cases can be hard to come by for some technologies, such as voice and gesture as input, but Oracle needs to keep up with the latest developments in those fields anyway so that we're ready when an enterprise use case comes up..."

27 Jan 2017 Friday Spotlight: Oracle RAC on Oracle VM environments [60098]
By Simon Coter, January 27th, 2017

Simon blogs, "Oracle products are engineered and tested to work together, providing distinct advantages when running Oracle Database and Oracle Application workloads on Oracle VM guests. That's why Oracle deploys Oracle VM to support and certify virtualized implementations of Oracle Applications and Oracle Database, Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) included.

Oracle RAC is a cluster database with a shared cache architecture that provides highly scalable and available database solutions for your business applications. Oracle RAC has evolved over the years and, on top of Oracle VM, can be used as the foundation of a Database Cloud Solution for the applications in your data center..."
