Agenda for SQL focused 52nd

  • Sergejs Viņņiks from Intrum Justitia SDC will give a talk “PL/SQL legacy today: SPA UI application and automated testing with JavaScript.”
    Businesses which run Oracle-based legacy systems sometimes wish to move to a modern WEB-GUI, without refactoring the business logic written completely in PL/SQL. Demand for implementing iterative agile development comes often hand-by-hand.
    Sergejs will demonstrate two generic solutions, which have been developed by Intrum Justitia SDC to address the aforementioned topics:
    1. Hapio – the HTTP adapter to the Oracle 12c database, which allows to call any SQL and PL/SQL methods directly from the browser;
    2. Jasquel – the PL/SQL testing tool, which utilizes Hapio to help creating and automating PL/SQL module tests in JavaScript.

  • Juris Rāts from Scope Technologies will give a talk “SQL Server 2016 – what’s new for developers”
    SQL Server has been around for decades. Lots of developers have used it at some stage of their career. However, most use it just as another data store. With the rise of NoSQL is it even relevant anymore?
    Well, I believe, it is. It still has plenty to go for, each version introduces new features and it covers a wide range of scenarios. And the latest version has some aces upon its sleeve. We will do a quick overview of what is SQL Server, then glance over some of the features of the latest version.
    Finally – some notes from the field. How to approach a SQL Server database on a production server.

  • Aivars Kalvāns from Tieto Latvia will give a talk “A NoSQL journey in Oracle SQL world”
    A retrospective of over 15 years of product development and different approaches we saw and tried to add flexibility and extensibility to our products. Starting with extra columns for tables, different key-value stores and document stores on top of RDBMS tables and finally Oracle JSON support. I will look at tasks we were trying to solve and problems we introduced by doing that and how we tried to battle them.
