Prolific and knowledgeable Oracle Ace LewisC asked a regular expression (more specifically, regexp_replace) question on Twitter, and I found myself thinking, "hey, I bet I could actually answer that!"

Retrieving Oracle patches with wget

While working from home this evening, I had to download some patches to a remote Linux system, and was struck, not for the the first time, by the inconvenience of it all. So I wrote a quick shell function that helps me grab patches using wget. And then, I decided to share with the world, or at least the really small portion of the world that visits my blog. ;-)

Roll Forward Physical standby database in 12c

As you are aware that rolling forward a physical standby via an incremental SCN backup method is the simplest method of getting your standby database with lag into sync with the primary database. The lag can be due to missing archives on the primary which haven’t been shipped or applied on the standby.
