Adopting Java: Create Java’s Future. Now. [UGF9754] Java technology evolves through a public, community effort. It starts with the wide experimentation done in and around Java; takes shape in the fast-paced open source development of the OpenJDK project; and gets buy-in, adoption, and competition through the standardization efforts of the JCP. Instead of waiting for the future to happen, developers are getting involved and creating the future. Now. And you too can be part of the change. This panel discussion addresses the increasing community involvement related to Java. Come learn about the Adopt programs (Adopt the OpenJDK and Adopt a JSR) run by Java User Groups around the world. Learn about the open source experiments happening around Java. Find your passion. Change Java. Change the world.

Controlling Robots with Java and ROS [UGF9651] This session introduces the Robot Operating System (ROS), a powerful abstraction of various robot hardware components and capabilities. The system provides the kinds of abstraction in robotics that we take for granted in desktop computing.

Unicode Migration: Chance and Challenge [UGF5994] Over the past years, Unicode databases have become the default for new databases. But what about the existing ones? Is using Oracle Database Migration Assistant for Unicode the right approach? Or would you be better off using Oracle Data Pump? What if your character length exceeds the defined length of the field or even the hard limitation of 4,000 bytes? Oracle Database 12c provides the extended character length of 32,768 bytes. Is that the solution that meets all requirements? And how can you have Unicode characters in a US7ASCII database? All these questions—and many more—have come up in some of this session’s speaker’s projects. Attend this session to talk about solutions.

Architect Your Data Center Infrastructure from Scratch [UGF9244] The experts in this session are challenged to put together a greenfield design/architecture that could provide the storage, server, and network services for a small to midsize manufacturing company. These experts are then presented with a few business challenges, and the attendees will see how their architecture changes, grows, or contracts to meet these needs. The presentation reveals the difference between vendor hype and the reality of day-to-day usage of these services and discusses how changing trends in technology do or do not fit well into changing business needs. You will leave the session with an understanding of the choices that go into picking a infrastructure service, including storage, backup, servers, and even operating systems.

How Safe Are Oracle Database Passwords? [UGF9198] Oracle Database has several authentication methods, but by far the most popular is prompting users for passwords. Just how safe are Oracle Database passwords? How vulnerable are they to malicious attempts to breach their security? This session touches on the various authentication methods available, along with their relative strengths and weaknesses. And just to get your attention and get you fired up about password security (or the lack thereof!), the presentation demonstrates a relatively simple approach to compromising basic Oracle Database passwords. In the interest of security, the exploit code from the demonstration will not be shared.
