Lewis Cunninghamhas once again given us a gem from the world of Oracle’s relational DBMS! This time, he has written ORA_Tweet, an API to send/receive Tweets (microblog posts) from within Oracle 11g. Major kudos to Lewis Cunningham for writing and releasing ORA Tweet to Sourceforge.net 🙂
Call the Twitter API from within an Oracle database. ORA_Tweet uses the UTL_HTTP API within Oracle to call the update_status API. It is written completely in PL/SQL.
So, my question is… Will someone write a Flickr API for Sybase ASE?
This is a three-part definition of Oracle Security (specifically in 10g but applies to later versions also). Part 1 covers the various types of security Oracle provides. Part 2 deals with Users/Schemas, Roles, Permissions and Data Access. Part 2 will be a more technical discussion than parts 1 or 3. In part 3, I will discuss implementing an Oracle auditing scheme and how to ensure you comply with security and audit regulations.
