Sonra published a book on the ODI repository

Sonra have published a new book on the ODI repository.

I believe this book would be quite useful for anyone doing serious work with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI).

Back in time I’ve been heavily using Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) – a product of the same family as ODI. The ability to access the design and runtime repository meta-data directly through the database as well as through the OMB*Plus API was critical. These were enables for automating some time consuming, error-prone and/or boring activities; and were life-savers during some time-critical migrations and upgrades.

Oracle has chosen ODI to be its strategic data integration product and has been recommending it as superior and in favour of OWB since a while (at least when it comes to new projects). What has been annoying to me was that after several years ODI is still lacking reference of the ODI repository database – I’ve been hoping Oracle to add it to the official documentation. I’m glad to see that Sonra are trying to close that gap.

Release of DbFit 2.0.0 final

Originally posted on Quick People Blog:

Good news, everybody – the long-overdue release of DbFit 2.0.0 is finally here. As always, the ZIP archive can be downloaded from the DbFit homepage.

This release is identical to the 2.0.0-RC5 release, which hasn’t had any show-stopping bugs raised against it for several months now; you can learn more about it in the release notes.

Enormous thanks to everyone who has contributed code, created bug reports and supported users on the DbFit Google Group – please keep doing it!

Beyond 2.0.0

I’m aware that there’s a significant number of changes that are sitting unreleased on the master branch – my plan is to release 2.1 with those changes as soon as possible. From 2.0 onwards, we will try to stick to smaller, more frequent releases and adopt semantic versioning, so that it’s clearer how much has changed between the releases.
