About this blog and test environment

As of August 2014

  • My test environment is Virtualbox 4.3.14, Oracle Linux 6.5 and Oracle 12c (12.1.0.2.0) on a MacBook Pro (15.4/2.0GHZ/8GB/256GB FLASH)
  • My development tool is Oracle SQL Developer.

As of March 2014

  • This blog uses the Able theme because it is wide: I try to avoid horizontal scrolling.
  • The photo shows sunset over Capri, Italy in late December 2013.
  • I use American spelling (unless I forget).
  • I no longer use the [ code ] shortcode as explained here. Way too often, the code winds up on one line and I have to redo everything. Instead, I use the < pre > tag while adding my own style manually:
<pre style="border:0;background:#F8F8F8;margin:0 0 20px;padding:0;">
<code style="line-height:125%;">
</code></pre>
  • I wrote a function to generate an html table from an SQL query. I’ll blog about that when it’s mature.
  • My test environment is Virtualbox 4.3.8, Oracle Linux 6.4 and Oracle 12c (12.1.0.1.0) on a new MacBook Pro (15.4/2.0GHZ/8GB/256GB FLASH)
  • My database uses the AL32UTF8 character set and American NLS settings.
  • I refer to the Oracle 12.1 documentation unless otherwise stated.
