OOW 2012 – Oracle XML DB Presentations and Hands-on Labs

I hereby am following up on a small tradition, that I think I get going since 2006…An agenda overview of all things XMLDB you can do or see during this years Oracle Open World. Oracle Open World is the biggest IT conference nowadays in the world with 40.000+ thousand attendees and 1600+ sessions or workshops, so an overview regarding specific topics can be handy. ;-) If there is an update or something needs correction or added, please post it here. If you have any questions, meet me in one of those sessions, during the Hands-on Labs or ACE hangout OTN tent on Howards’ street.

XML DB Presentations and Hands-on Labs

HOL10055 – Oracle XML DB Hands-On Lab ===================================================================== This hands-on lab provides an introduction to using Oracle XML DB and XQuery to store and manage XML content stored in Oracle Database. It introduces the different kinds of XML storage and indexing offered by Oracle XML DB and shows how to optimize XQuery operations on XML content by selecting the correct storage and indexing model. The lab also provides an introduction to the XML features available in the latest version of Oracle Database, including the new XQuery Update standard. And it shows how to take full advantage of the latest XQuery standards, such as XQuery Full-Text, to develop applications that combine the power of Full-Text and XML-based indexes BOF9908 – Oracle XML DB BOF ===================================================================== This session provides you with an opportunity to get answers to your questions about Oracle XML DB from the development team, product management team, acknowledged independent experts, and fellow Oracle XML DB users. The goal is to have an open and frank discussion about how to get the best out of all the features of Oracle XML DB. The session gives you a chance to establish personal contact with the people who have firsthand experience with developing and delivering systems that make use of Oracle XML DB CON8443 – Simple Content Management with Oracle XML DB and Database Native Web Services ===================================================================== This session demonstrates the power of the Oracle XML DB repository. You will learn how to automate the processing of documents stored in the Oracle XML DB repository, using repository events, and how to combine XML, PL/SQL, and database native Web services with Ajax and JavaScript to create simple, effective applications that leverage the full power of Oracle XML DB and the Oracle XML DB repository. The session focuses on a sample application, called XFiles, and shows how it was created with a combination of XML, XSL, JavaScript Ajax, and PL/SQL CON8440 – Managing XML Content with the Latest-Generation Oracle XML DB ===================================================================== This session introduces the latest generation of Oracle XML DB technology. XML standards continue to evolve, and Oracle XML DB continues to provide the industry’s leading implementation of those standards. The latest version of Oracle XML DB provides support for two new exciting XML standards, XQuery-Update and XQuery-Full Text. You will learn how to use XQuery, XQuery-Update, and XQuery Full-Text to develop powerful XML-centric applications. The session also demonstrates how to optimize XQuery Full-Text operations with Oracle’s new XML full-text index. The presentation also introduces Oracle’s new midtier XQuery engine and the XQJ API, which enables Java developers to access the full power of Oracle’s XML technology CON3148 – Integrating XML by Using Oracle SQL Developer 3.1 and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 ===================================================================== Frequently during a project lifecycle, new technology is introduced that presents first-time challenges. This session describes a project using Oracle XML Database (Oracle XML DB) and discusses why Oracle XML DB was chosen, how it was used, and the technical issues encountered. The presentation covers several examples using XMLTYPE, CLOBs, Oracle XML DB methods, XMLAGG, XMLELEMENT, XMLFOREST, and dbms_xmldom. You will learn about methods, design considerations, and issues with Oracle XML DB. You will also take home working examples that you can copy and paste into your Oracle environment. Benefit from examples that use Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle SQL Developer 3.1. CON8442 – Design Guidelines and Performance Tuning for Storing XML in Oracle Database ===================================================================== This session examines techniques that can be used to optimize the performance of XML processing in Oracle XML DB. It looks at the different storage and indexing options and provides guidelines on when each should be considered. After establishing a framework for deciding how to store XML, the presentation considers the options available for indexing XML to ensure optimal performance of an XML-based application. The session also discusses how standard techniques such as partitioning and using parallel data manipulation language (PDML) can be used to scale XML processing on extremely large volumes of XML content and how Oracle XML DB can leverage the intelligent storage capabilities of Oracle Exadata. DEMOGROUNDS (Moscone South) XML Application Development: Oracle XML DB, Oracle XML Developer Kit ===================================================================== Oracle XML Database provides a high-performance, native XML storage and retrieval technology. It fully absorbs the W3C XML data model into the Oracle Database, and provides new standard access methods for navigating and querying XML. With Oracle XML Database, you get all the advantages of relational database technology plus the advantages of XML. Come and learn how to develop applications that take advantage of Oracle’s XML technology and the Oracle XML DB Repository. Oracle XML Database: Structured, Semistructured, and Unstructured XML ===================================================================== Oracle XML Database provides a high-performance, native XML storage and retrieval technology. It fully absorbs the W3C XML data model into the Oracle Database, and provides new standard access methods for navigating and querying XML. With Oracle XML Database, you get all the advantages of relational database technology plus the advantages of XML. Come and learn how to develop applications that take advantage of Oracle’s XML technology and the Oracle XML DB Repository.
