The Oracle Corporation is an American multinational computer technology corporation headquartered in Redwood City, California, United States. The company specializes in developing and marketing computer hardware systems and enterprise software products – particularly its own brands of database management systems. As of 2011, Oracle is the second-largest software maker by revenue, after Microsoft.The company also builds tools for database development and systems of middle-tier software, enterprise resource planning software, customer relationship management software and supply chain management software.Larry Ellison, a co-founder of Oracle, had served as Oracle's CEO throughout its history. On September 18, 2014, it was announced that he would be stepping down . Ellison will become executive chairman and CTO. He also served as the Chairman of the Board until his replacement by Jeffrey O. Henley in 2004. On August 22, 2008, the Associated Press ranked Ellison as the top-paid chief executive in the world.

While a runtime specializer may always be able to generate an automated specialized version of a generic class, in some cases an alternate form of user control over specialization may allow the use of automated specialization while also adding (or overriding) specialization-specific method implementations. In general, the set of members of a generic class may not change when the class is specialized. In other words, the same members may exist in the auto-specialized version as in the generic version. However, manual refinement of specialized classes may allow a developer to hand specialize a particular (possibly a better) representation and/or implementation of one or more methods of the specialized class.

The loading or operation of a specialized class may trigger the specialization of other classes. A compiler may be configured to recognize dependency relationships between generic classes and to describe the classes in terms of the type variables of the triggering types (e.g., the types and/or type parameterizations) that trigger the specialization of classes based on the specialization of a first class. A compiler may include information, such as structural references, indicating dependency relationships between classes when generating class files. Thus, the class file may include information indicating that a class extends a class resulting from applying a specialization code generator to an argument. Loading a first class may trigger the loading of a second class described by a structural description such that a specializer (and/or class loader) may apply the structural description to generate and load the second class for the particular parameterization.

Techniques for partitioning data streams are provided. In some examples, a query for processing at least a portion of a data stream may be identified. The data stream may be associated with a user. Additionally, in some examples, code identifying an attribute of the identified stream may be received. The code may be capable of configuring the query based at least in part on the attribute. Further, in some aspects, the code may be configured to partition the data stream into at least a sub-stream based at least in part on the attribute.


Embodiments can enable the uploading of a newer version of a plugin package to a plugin service without affecting an existing user session that is using an older version of the plugin package. When a new user session begins, the plugin service can monitor one or more plugin packages and the versions used during the new user session. Throughout the user session, the plugin service continues to make the plugin packages available to the user regardless of newer versions being uploaded to the plugin service. In the meantime, multiple clients with different user sessions may be using different and possibly newer versions of the plugin packages at the same time. The plugin service can remove an older version of a plugin package when it determines that there are no longer any active user sessions utilizing the older version of the plugin package.

A dual-ring-modulated laser includes a gain medium having a reflective end coupled to a gain-medium reflector and an output end coupled to a reflector circuit to form a lasing cavity. This reflector circuit comprises: a first ring modulator; a second ring modulator; and a shared waveguide that optically couples the first and second ring modulators. The first and second ring modulators have resonance peaks, which are tuned to have an alignment separation from each other. During operation, the first and second ring modulators are driven in opposing directions based on the same electrical input signal, so the resonance peaks of the first and second ring modulators shift wavelengths in the opposing directions during modulation. The modulation shift for each of the resonance peaks equals the alignment separation, so the resonance peaks interchange positions during modulation to cancel out reflectivity changes in the lasing cavity caused by the modulation.

Embodiments of a processor are disclosed for performing arithmetic operations on a machine independent number format. The processor may include a floating point unit, and a number unit. The number format may include a sign/exponent block, a length block, and multiple mantissa digits. The number unit may be configured to perform an operation on two operands by converting the digit format of each mantissa digit of each operand, to perform the operation using the converted mantissa digits, and then to convert each mantissa digit of the result of the operation back into the original digit format.


In accordance with an embodiment, described herein is a system and method for partition migration in a multitenant application server environment. Each resource group, or partition which includes that resource group, can be associated with a virtual target (e.g., virtual host) information that defines a target to which that resource group or partition should be targeted and deployed. A web tier component (e.g., Oracle Traffic Director) includes a routing information, which maps the virtual target for a partition to a corresponding target such as a server or cluster, so that requests for that partition are directed to the appropriate target, for example as part of one or more sessions. When a partition is migrated, session information is replicated between an original target and a new target, and the web tier component provided with a revised routing information, so that subsequent requests for that partition are directed to the new target.


A method of making stamper plates for an embossing drum for embossing tape media is provided. The method includes forming one or more first stamper plates using a master template, and forming a second stamper plate from one of the one or more first stamper plates such that the second stamper plate and the one first stamper plate have inverse land and groove patterns. Furthermore, the second stamper plate and the one first stamper plate or another of the one or more first stamper plates are useable on the drum to emboss tape media.

Techniques are provided for dependency-aware transaction batching for data replication. A plurality of change records corresponding to a plurality of transactions is read. Inter-transaction dependency data is generated, the inter-transaction dependency data including at least one inter-transaction dependency relationship between a plurality of pending transactions. Each inter-transaction dependency relationship indicates that a first transaction is dependent on a second transaction. A batch transaction is generated based on the inter-transaction dependency data. The batch transaction includes at least one pending transaction of the plurality of pending transactions. The batch transaction is assigned to an apply process of a plurality of apply processes configured to apply batch transactions in parallel.

A system and method for facilitating development of a web service, such as a Representational State Transfer (REST) web service. The example method includes determining one or more characteristics of a service interface and incorporating the resulting information in a file; and automatically generating computer code to implement a REST service based on the file. In a more specific embodiment, the file is an XML file, which may be output from a REST analysis tool applied to the service interface. The web service may leverage or include one or more resources that have been mapped to a REST service via a code generator used to implement the generating step.
