Target Schema and Runtime Instance of Oracle Database

I am new to OWB and starting to understand its architecture.
Does the Runtime Access User, Runtime Repository Schema and Target Schema (discussed a the Runtime Instance) need to be installed on every database that will be a target? For example, if I have a data warehouse and two data marts, with I have three installations?

Hi,
You need to run the OWB Runtime Assistent for every target schema, that is correct (it will add the auditing stuff that enables you to monitor what's happening deployment and execution wise).
Whether you need to create a Runtime Repository and its accompanying Runtime Access User(s) for each and every target I'm not sure.
If your target schema's are on the same instance I'd say that you can use as few or many Runtime Repositories as you wish.
When on different instances I think it's necessary to create them.
Hopefully other forum-attendees can add some more if they have definite answers.
Cheers, Patrick

  • Difference between target schema and target user

    hi,
    Can anyone explain to me what is the difference between target schema and target user? examples will be more welcome then theoratical explanation.
    thanks so much

    In Oracle database schema and user is the same things (if you use general authentication by database).
    When used external authentication (for example with Windows domains/active directory) schema is a owner of database objects group and you should specify mapping between external usernames and schema to which this user has access when connects to database.
    For example:
    - windows domain user CORPDOMAIN\USER1 can connect to oracle database schema SCOTT;
    - windows domain user CORPDOMAIN\USER2 can connect to oracle database schema SCOTT;
    - windows domain user CORPDOMAIN\ADMIN can connect to oracle database schema SYSTEM;

    I have presently stored the data in nvarchar2 field. But i am not able to display it correctly.

    Using the national characterset should work but there are other factors that you have to consider when working with NCHAR/NVARCHAR2/NCLOB.
    If possible, changing the characterset is usually the best solution if it's a possiblity for you.
    For more info:

  • Connection pooling and auditing on an oracle database

    Integration of a weblogic application with an oracle backend,
    Connection pooling, and auditing ,2 conflicting requirements ?
    Problem statement :
    We are in the process of maintaining a legacy client server application where
    the client is
    written in PowerBuilder and the backend is using an Oracle database.
    Almost all business logic is implemented in stored procedures on the database.
    When working in client/server mode ,1 PowerBuilder User has a one-to-one relation
    with
    a connection(session) on the oracle database.
    It is a requirement that the database administrator must see the real user connected
    to the database
    and NOT some kind of superuser, therefore in the PowerBuilder app each user connects
    to the database
    with his own username.(Each user is configured on the database via a seperate
    powerbuilder security app).
    For the PowerBuilder app all is fine and this app can maintain conversional state(setting
    and
    reading of global variables in oracle packages).
    The management is pushing for web-based application where we will be using bea
    weblogic appserver(J2EE based).
    We have build an business app which is web-based and accessing the same oracle
    backend app as
    the PowerBuilder app is doing.
    The first version of this web-based app is using a custom build connector(based
    on JCA standard and
    derived from a template provided by the weblogic integration installation).
    This custom build connector is essentially a combination of a custom realm in
    weblogic terms
    and a degraded connection pool , where each web session(browser) has a one-to-one
    relation
    with the back end database.
    The reason that this custom connector is combining the security functionality
    and the pooling
    functionality , is because each user must be authenticated against the oracle
    database(security requirement)
    and NOT against a LDAP server, and we are using a statefull backend(oracle packages)
    which would make it
    difficult to reuse connections.
    A problem that surfaced while doing heavy loadtesting with the custom connector,
    is that sometimes connections are closed and new ones made in the midst of a transaction.
    If you imagine a scenario where a session bean creates a business entity ,and
    the session bean
    calls 1 entity bean for the header and 1 entity bean for the detail, then the
    header and detail
    must be created in the same transaction AND with the same connection(there is
    a parent-child relationship
    between header and detail enforced on the back end database via Primary and Foreing
    Keys).
    We have not yet found why weblogic is closing the connection!
    A second problem that we are experincing with the custom connector, is the use
    of CMP(container managed persistence)
    within entity beans.
    The J2EE developers state that the use of CMP decreases the develoment time and
    thus also maintenance costs.
    We have not yet found a way to integrate a custom connector with the CMP persistence
    scheme !
    In order to solve our loadtesting and CMP persistence problems i was asked to
    come up with a solution
    which should not use a custom connector,but use standard connection pools from
    weblogic.
    To resolve the authentication problem on weblogic i could make a custom realm
    which connects to the
    backend database with the username and password, and if the connection is ok ,
    i could consider this
    user as authenticated in weblogic.
    That still leaves me with the problem of auditing and pooling.
    If i were to use a standard connection pool,then all transaction made in the oracle
    database
    would be done by a pool user or super user, a solution which will be rejected
    by our local security officer,
    because you can not see which real user made a transaction in the database.
    I could still use the connection pool and in the application , advise the application
    developers
    to set an oracle package variable with the real user, then on arrival of the request
    in the database,
    the logic could use this package variable to set the transaction user.
    There are still problems with this approach :
    - The administrator of the database can still not see who is connected , he will
    only see the superuser connection.
    - This scheme can not be used when you want to use CMP persistence , since it
    is weblogic who will generate the code
    to access the database.
    I thought i had a solution when oracle provided us with a connection pool known
    as OracleOCIConnectionPool
    where there is a connection made by a superuser, but where sessions are multiplexed
    over this physical pipe with the real user.
    I can not seem to properly integrate this OCI connectionpool into weblogic.
    When using this pool , and we are coming into a bean (session or entity bean)
    weblogic is wrapping
    this pool with it's own internal Datasource and giving me back a connection of
    the superuser, but not one for the real user,
    thus setting me with my back to the wall again.
    I would appreciate if anyone had experienced the same problem to share a possible
    solution with us
    in order to satisfy all requirements(security,auditing,CMP).
    Many Thanks

    Hi Blyau,
    As Joe has already provided some technical advice,
    I'll try to say something on engineering process level.
    While migrating an application from one technology to
    other, like client-server to n-tier in you case, customers and
    stakeholders want to push into the new system as many old
    requirements as possible. This approach is AKA "we must
    have ALL of the features of the old system". Mostly it happens
    because they don't know what they want. Ad little understanding
    of abilities of the new technology, and you will get a requirement
    like the one you have in you hands.
    I think "DBA must see real user" is one of those. For this
    type of requirements it can make sense to try to drop it,
    or to understand its nature and suggest alternatives. In this
    particular case it can be a system that logs user names,
    login and logout times.
    Blind copying of old features into an incompatible new architecture
    may endanger the whole project and can result in its failure.
    Hope this helps.

    hi all
    i want the code sample for storing the image to oracle database
    development enviornment:

    i am connecting to oracle database thru applet using oracle jdbc thin driver
    can anyone give me details about storing image to db
    1) what datatype should be used in table for image?
    2) my image files are on client machine... can i directly read those files from browser or first i have to copy those files to server?
    3) .gif files will do or what should be the fileformat?
    4) java code to store it to database (i am using jdk1.3)
    5) how to retrieve it back from database and display it in awt panel ?
    its very urgent ...
    i am doing some r&d and trying to do using blob....
    but it will take some time ...
    i will really be thankful if someone sends detail code....
    thankx in advance ....

    Hi,
    The code below might answer few of your questions.
    There is a restrcition on size of image, it must be less than 4KB.
    //Code to insert image in database
    //mytable is the table name that contains two fields in databse:name,image of type varchar and blob
    Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");
    Connection con =null ;

    preparedStatement.setBinaryStream(2, inputStream, inputStream.available());
    preparedStatement.executeUpdate();
    preparedStatement.close();
    inputStream.close(); To retrieve image,here is the snippet
    ResultSet resultSet = stmt.executeQuery("select image from mytable'");
    if (resultSet.next())
    byte[] image1 = resultSet.getBytes("image");

  • SAP Server upgrade from Windows 2003 and 2008 R2 with Oracle Database

    Hi,
    We need to upgrade upgrade our Windows servers that are running our SAP systems from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 R2.  We are using Microsoft Clustering for HA so an inplace upgrade seems not possible.
    Someone has suggested to us that we will need to export our database and reimport it to achieve this upgrade however but I cannot understand why this would be necessary (we are not changing the underlying filesystem!).
    Could someone please confirm whether a database export and import is required for this OS upgrade scenario?  I have done a bit of research but nothing has jumped out and now I need an answer to this quickly.
    We are running
    - ERP 6.0 NW 7.01 (soon to be 7.02 with ABAP stack only)
    - XI(PI) Java & ABAP
    - SRM (Java & ABAP)
    - Portal (Java only)
    - PLM (Java & ABAP)
    - BW (BI 7.0) (Java and ABAP)
    Thank You
    Felicity

    Hello,
    You need to go for 'Homogeneous System Copy' to achieve this, but since almost all the systems in your landscape include the Java Stack as well - so the system copy with Export/Import is to be carried out.
    Even if you are not going for file system change, but it is a Windows environment and you can't put SAP up on the target Windows (windows 2008 R2) just by copying the contents and file system from source to target. You need SAPinst to create the registry and all. - On top of that you have Java stacks involved, so for java stack you can't carry out just backup/restore method to put SAP up there on target - so you need Export/import because for java stack some OS level dump is to be collected during system copy from source and it needs to be imported on target OS.
    Are you clear on this one ?
    Read system copy guide once and Search in OSS for the Notes to check how to upgrade from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 R2.
    Thanks
