Kevin Duffy of Oracle has announced that registration for the 2015 Oracle Rdb and Oracle Database on OpenVMS Technical Forums in North America and EMEA is now open. To register, go to:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/datab ... 01986.html

As was previously announced, the dates and locations for the 2015 Oracle Forums are:

  • October 1-2, Burlington, MA, USA
  • October 5-6, Redwood Shores, CA, USA
  • October 12-13, Utrecht, Netherlands
  • October 15-16, Kista, Sweden
  • October 19-20, Vienna, Austria
  • October 22-23, London, UK
  • October 26-27, Paris, France
  • December 1-2, North Ryde, Australia

Registration for the 2015 Asia Pacific Forum being held in Sydney, Australia is not yet open but will be opening soon.

Note that the Burlington Forum will be held just following this year’s Connect OpenVMS Boot Camp in Nashua, NH. The Forum will be held at our Burlington, MA campus instead of Nashua, NH because we have larger conference facilities in Burlington. The Boot Camp begins on Sunday, September 27th and ends on Wednesday, September 30th and the Oracle Forum begins on Thursday, October 1st. The drive from Nashua to Burlington is about 30-45 minutes depending on traffic, so Boot Camp attendees may want to consider relocating to a Burlington hotel starting Wednesday evening.

We will be presenting an Oracle session at the Boot Camp. However, to get an in-depth understanding of the latest Oracle related developments on OpenVMS, we highly recommend that you attend the Forum as well.

A sampling of the Forum session topics includes:

  • Oracle Rdb and Oracle Database on OpenVMS Product Status and Direction
  • OpenVMS Update from HP and VMS Software Inc.
  • An update from Intel on Itanium and x86
  • Connect OpenVMS Community Update
  • What's Next with Oracle 11g
  • 11g Install on OpenVMS
  • Replaying Your 10g Workload on 11g with RAT
  • What's New in Oracle Rdb
  • Upgrading to Rdb 7.3
  • Oracle Rdb Remote Database Access
  • Oracle Rdb Connectivity Update
  • Using PHP Data Objects (PDO) with Oracle Rdb Databases
  • OpenVMS and Oracle Rdb at one of the Largest Customers in Japan
  • History of SQL Features Including Newer Ones You May Have Missed

The full Forum agenda is being finalized and will be posted soon on the registration web page.

Attendance will be opened to those who cannot join us in person. Remote attendees will be sent the information needed to join us in a live online Forum web conference. To receive this information, remote attendees must send an email to InfoRdb_US@oracle.com, after they have registered, indicating that they will be attending remotely. Remote attendees are welcome to attend any or all sessions.

Kevin and his team are very excited to be bringing the 2015 Technical Forums to you. They hope you will be able to join them.

New PCSI kits for Curl and ZLIB 
Monday, July 6, 2015, 08:53 AM
Posted by Administrator
Curl 7.43, ZLIB 1.2.8e1 PCSI kits should now install on VSI VMS releases.

Curl 7.43 is now available for VMS including the VSI VMS releases. It requires ZLIB 1.2.8e1 PCSI kit to also be installed.

This is the current release of Curl for all platforms.

This build of Curl will use the SSL, Kerberos and LDAP that are installed on current versions of VMS by default.

Curl provides a 32 bit libcurl shared image and while Curl installs in the same directory tree as GNV, it does not require GNV to be installed.

Curl detects when running under GNV or DCL and automatically adjusts itself to the desired mode.

Download location is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vms-ports/files/i640840/
