He was born with the natural ability to control a race car through any type of...

    Challenges in the Clouds

    I’ve been interested in weather, meteorology and clouds in the sky for as long as I can remember; which may explain why one of my favorite songs is Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now”. I’ve learned that some clouds are pretty, and harmless; but other clouds can bring bad weather and storms. As computing continues to move toward “The Cloud”; it’s easy to discover “I really...

    SharePlex Optimistic Commit Explained

    So the other day, as I was using a taxi to get to the airport for a flight. I was watching all the traffic on the freeway and it got me thinking about SharePlex’s optimistic commit feature and a taxi are similar. How can SharePlex and a taxi have anything in common you ask? Well they are both responsible for moving something from one point to another with as little latency or delay as possible. Optimistic commit...

    Exception handling by SharePlex when dealing with out of sync?

    The conventional methodology followed by SharePlex and most other replication solutions is to ignore out of sync DML within a transaction while applying rest of the successful DML to the target database. A transaction may span one or more objects, each having one or more rows, or DML. When posting that transaction, if any row runs into out of sync conditions, the default behavior is to simply discard that row, record...
