"It is unfortunate that the start of this event overlaps with the last Conference sessions of the day, because there is a presentation I really want to catch."

Profile Information

About Me:
I've been using Oracle since 1992. I am the chair of the UKOUG Development Engineering SIG chair. I was made an Oracle ACE in 2003 (in the days before they were called ACEs). Also in 2003 I won Oracle Magazine's OTN Contributor of the Year.

I work as a consultant for Logica. It says "software architect" on my business card, because nobody really knows what one of those is. Basically I am a database developer, (i.e. mainly PL/SQL) but I also work as a DBA, systems analyst, designer and business consultant. I also cook.

Back and blogging again

It's been a long time since I did anything on this site. I've been taking a break from cyberspace. The forums and the blog were getting too much, on top of my work. But I think I've got my work-life balance back under control (famous last words). Anyway, I've started blogging again, and participating in the forums.



But really I'm just updating this because the last message I posted here was so negative. Blogger did sort out the problem, so that's cool.



I feel better now… Continue

Blogger has eaten Radio Free Tooting

I am bummed out. This is the second time in six months that Blogger has taken my blog down. The last time was because they thought it was a spam blog. This time the blogspot site is just not there. I get a stripped down version of the dashboard instead.



There are a few other people in the Help forums who seem to have had something similar happen to them. Unfortunately these outages have been occurring since 29-JAN and there doesn't seem to be anyone who has managed to get their site… Continue

Andrew:

Mostly I have been head down working. Big project and unreasonable deadlines (are there any other kind?).

Go-live, assuming we finish UAT is March 27, so I may have a little more time after that.

yes, I obviously need a higher res version of it. Not to mention one that doesn't make it look as though I've been trepanned.

Code Examples of In-Memory Grouping for more efficient data computing and analytics

It is convenient to realize some common in-memory grouping with esProc, such as, equal grouping, alignment grouping and enumeration grouping. They are to be illustrated with the following examples.

Equal grouping 

Grouping basis of equal grouping is certain fields (or computed columns derived from fields) within a data set. Each group is a subset of original data set.

Case description: Group sales orders by the year. …

Difference between esProc Table Sequence and SQL Data Table

SQL data table and esProc TSeq(Table Sequence) are all the structured 2-dimensional data objects. The records, indexes, and primary keys can all be applied to the structured data computing. Although both of them can be applied to the structured data computing, their application scenarios differ distinctly. TSeq is fit for solving the complex computing problem involving not-so-big data volume, while data table is fit for the common computation involving possible big data volume.

Their…
