By | Cloud, DevOps, SQL Server | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . In the previous blog post I’ve installed SQL Server on the Oracle Cloud. My goal was actually to have a look at Redgate SQL Clone, a product that automates thin cloning.

By Franck Pachot . J’essaie quelque chose de nouveau. Je publie beaucoup en anglais (blog, articles, présentations) mais cette fois quelque chose de 100% francophone. En sortant du confinement, on reprend les transports (train, voiture,…) et c’est l’occasion de se détendre en musique mais aussi de s’informer avec des podcasts. J’ai l’impression que c’est un format qui a de l’avenir: moins contraignant que regarder une video ou ou lire un article ou une newsletter. Alors…

By | Cloud, DevOps, Oracle | 2 Comments

By Franck Pachot . Let’s say you have a PEOPLE table with FIRST_NAME and LAST_NAME and you want, in many places of your application, to display the full name. Usually my name will be displayed as ‘Franck Pachot’ and I can simply add a virtual column to my table, or view, as: initcap(FIRST_NAME)||’ ‘||initcap(LAST_NAME). Those are simple SQL functions.
