    The overwhelming growth of big data for enterprises today means that not only must you be able to analyze the rest of the information that truly counts, but that involves sophisticated search and machine learning algorithms over large data sets to find the important details that matter. Enter stream processing, which can be a game changer in a big data world.

    This technical article describes stream processing using the DAX APIs in detail:  Introduction to Stream Processing Using the DAX APIs

    CIO’s list of the 10 hottest skills for 2016 shows that demand for Big Data skills has moved up from number 10 in 2015 to number 4 this year.

    Over 36% of companies say they will look for candidates with Big Data training and skills during the next 12 months.

    What makes Big Data such a specialty?

    It’s a question of vision.

    A Gartner researcher points out that Big Data is about looking ahead, beyond what everybody else sees.

    “You need to understand how to deal with hybrid data, meaning the combination of structured and unstructured data, and how you shine a light on ‘dark data.’ Dark data is the data being collected, but going unused despite its value. Leading organizations of the future will be distinguished by the quality of their predictive algorithms. This is the CIO challenge, and opportunity.”

    No doubt about it: the importance of Big Data is increasing year over year, and that trend translates into job growth as well.

    Companies face the challenge of not having enough people who are trained and ready to work in Big Data.

    IT departments will need to figure out how to attract the right talent and develop their employees in this area. The future depends on it.

    While Big Data experts are hard to find, you can help your current employees become proficient enough to handle those needs through Oracle University's Big Data training.

      Using training to close the skills gap makes the difference in the skills empowers your employees.

      According to a recent Computerworld article, it’s well worth the effort to help your employees grow into Big Data specializations.

      Instead of hiring data scientists, you can identify members of your existing staff with data warehouse and IT experience who are willing to learn, and then train them.

      Oracle University can help your employees become Big Data specialists.

      Enrolling in our complete Big Data and business analytics training helps your staff develop the skills to deliver revolutionary insights to your business.

      • Choose from a wide variety of Big Data or Business Analytics courses that match your job role.

      • Learn from expert Oracle University instructors who will help you gain specialized expertise.

      • Take Big Data and Business Analytic courses to solidify your skills through hands-on labs and demonstrations.

    • 05/31/16--10:18: From Big Data to Insights
    • By Editor in Chief Andrew Binstock

      Welcome to the May/June issue of Java Magazine in which we look at how big data is done today. An unusual aspect of the platforms that handle big data is that they almost all run on Java — a testimony to its suitability for enterprise-scale needs.

      However, today many of the primary tools don't require enterprise size to be useful. Apache Spark, for example, can work effectively on small, human-size databases. We show how this is done with one developer's project of querying a database of first names to find one for his unborn child. But even if you run Spark in enterprise apps, you'll find that it is much easier to use than earlier tools that required extensive setup and fiddling with systems. Our lead article on Apache 101 shows just how simple it can be to work with big data and produce useful results.

      We also look at handling large datasets the traditional ways in two articles: with high-volume JDBC and through enormous in-memory data structures. The latter article shows a clever way of storing tens of gigabytes in memory but off the heap.

      For those readers who do unit testing on their code (almost everyone, I trust), we preview the new features coming up in JUnit 5.

      The rest of the issue shows off Ceylon, a recently released JVM language from Red Hat; how to set up Java cloud apps; and, for beginners, how generics work in Java — all topped off by our famous language quiz, our no-holds-barred book review, and my editorial. Enjoy!

      Note: In our quest to support more devices, we have moved away from the former Java Magazine app. Currently, the magazine is available on the web and in PDF. To get the PDF, access the web page from a laptop or desktop and use the download icon on the right side of the page.

      We will shortly complete migration of our back issues. Thank you for your patience while this process completes. If you're desperate for a specific back issue, drop me a note. We'll find a way to get it to you.

      Do you know which exam you should take now that we just released the new Oracle Database 12c SQL Certified Associate exam?

      If not, use this as a guide:

      1. This new exam 1Z0-071 is a midpoint knowledge exam. It’s proctored, so its cost is the same as our other proctored exams.Pass this exam and get an Oracle Certified Associate badge.
      2. If you are already an Oracle Certified Expert having passed the 1Z0-047 exam, there is no need to take 1Z0-071 too.The Oracle Certified Expert exam is harder and it covers a lot, so deep subject knowledge is needed to pass.
      3. If you're not ready to attempt full certification, we have two SQL Fundamental exams; 1Z0-051 for 11g and 1Z0-061 for 12c.They are not proctored so you don’t become Oracle certified after passing.They have a lower cost and are not as difficult.

      Are you ready to become an Oracle Database 12c SQL Certified Associate?

      Test Your Oracle Database 12c SQL skills with three practice exam questions In Oracle Magazine May-June 2016 issue.  See Inside OCP, to test your depth of knowledge of SQL and how to use it with Oracle Database 12c

      It's not a secret that lately IT people are talking a lot about NoSQL. Some even use it. NoSQL databases could have some advantages over RDBMS (like scalability), but many of NoSQL databases don't have many features that are quite common for RDBMS (like transaction support, maturity for backup and recovery tools)....

          At the AMIS Conference in Katwijk, the Netherlands, I attended a hackathon yesterday and learned a lot from my colleague Shaun Smith, who is the Oracle product manager working on Application Container Cloud Service (ACCS). 

          What I wanted to achieve was this—create an Oracle JET application that renders data made available by an application running on ACCS. Here's Shaun and I setting up my environment and deploying an application to it:

          In the end, we got everything working:

          • We have a Node.js application running on my instance of ACCS.
          • Using REST, it exposes underlying data.
          • The data is consumed in an Oracle JET application.

          Here's the simple UI of the Oracle JET application. What's nice about it is that it consists of three different modules and that the table is defined by the Oracle JET "ojTable" component.

          Here's the definition of the HTML view of the JET module that provides the ojTable:

          <table id="table"
                 data-bind="ojComponent: {
             component: 'ojTable',
                data: datasource,
                columns: [
                      {headerText: 'Problem',  field: 'problem'},
                      {headerText: 'Description',  field: 'description'},
                      {headerText: 'Status',  field: 'status'},
                      {headerText: 'Address',  field: 'formattedAddress'}

          ...and here's the JavaScript side providing the business logic of the HTML view shown above:

          define(['ojs/ojcore', 'knockout', 'ojs/ojtable', 'ojs/ojdatacollection-common'
          ], function (oj, ko) {
              function GeneratedContentViewModel() {
                  var self = this;
         = ko.observableArray();
                          then(function (json) {
                              var metrics = json.result;
                              var location = json.result.location;
                              $.each(metrics, function () {
                                      problem: this.problem,
                                      description: this.description,
                                      status: this.status,
                                      formattedAddress: this.location.formattedAddress
                  self.datasource = new oj.ArrayTableDataSource(
                          {idAttribute: 'problem'}
              return GeneratedContentViewModel;

          A special aspect of the solution is that the Oracle JET application is bundled as static resources within the Node.js application. We did this to overcome CORS problems we were struggling with. Below, the "client" folder, within my Node.js application, which is named "ifixitfast", contains my complete Oracle JET application:

          The "client" folder is a static folder within my Node.js application thanks to this bit related to the Express framework on top of Node.js:

          var express = require("express");
          var app = express();

          That line in bold is all that is needed, in this case in a file named "web.js".

          What is also a useful piece of knowledge is how the ZIP file is created, which is uploaded via the UI on ACCS into my ACCS instance:

            "name": "ifixitfast",
            "version": "1.0.0",
            "description": "ifixitfast REST Service",
            "main": "web.js",
            "dependencies": {
              "debug": "^2.2.0",
              "express": "^4.13.4"
            "scripts": {
              "start": "node web.js",
              "prepublish": "zip -r app client node_modules manifest.json package.json *.js"

          Notice the "prepublish" line at the end, where the name of the ZIP file is defined, which will be created, containing all the folders and files listed there, when "npm install" is run (which can be done from within NetBeans IDE).

          Finally, the ZIP file is uploaded to ACCS, where magically everything is unpacked and set up such that when I go to the "index.html" of the URL, I automatically am served up the application from ACCS:

          Alternatively, instead of running a Node.js application on ACCS, you can run Java SE applications, too, which could serve up JSON or XML in a similar way to how the Node.js application is doing in the example outlined above.

          Alexander Kouznetsov and José Pereda describe how to transition a desktop OpenJFX application into a cross-platform application using Gluon in a new article. Although OpenJFX is not ready to run on mobile devices--and it does not provide tools for configuring, debugging, and deploying apps--Gluon provides frameworks and tools that enable you to use OpenJFX for mobile development.

          In Part 1 of the article, the authors address how to create a Gluon application project in NetBeans and then run your application on Android, iOS, and desktop devices. Part 2 covers how to adjust the application for use on mobile devices by dealing with issues such as screen size, multiple windows, touch input versus mouse input, application lifecycle, and saving application state. Part 3 describes options for using Glisten, a Gluon subcomponent, to make the application look and feel modern.  

          Throughout the article, Kouznetsov and Pereda provide example code, caveats, and tips. To learn more, read the article.
