Windows 7, deal with network adaptor issues

We have one 6530b HP laptop machine with us, which has gone through half dozen formats, mainly due to issues with network adaptor. The last format was performed 2 weeks back and realized one important factor. If windows finds a proper driver for your network adaptor, NEVER NEVER try to upgrade the driver using OEM or chip manufacturer drivers!

We were doing the same mistake always as the driver configured by Microsoft dates back to year 2009 beginning. Once the driver set by Microsoft untouched, the network related issues are almost non-existing right now.

Hope this information is useful for those who have few years old hardware and a new age OS like Windows 7!

Oracle Developer 10g 10.1.2.0.2 Crash on Windows 7 while opening forms modules!

We are using Oracle developer 10g, details:

Forms [32 Bit] Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.3.0 – 64bit Production

Oracle Tools Integration Version 10.1.2.0.2 (Production)
Oracle Tools Common Area Version 10.1.2.0.2
Oracle CORE 10.1.0.4.0 Production

and recently noticed additional crashing behavior on Windows 7 (64Bit) without any apparent reasons. Based on one of our previous posts, after dwelling into possible reasons figured out the following!

Few of the database level procedures were modified with more parameters(IN and OUT) which was causing the developer suite to crash down.

So, prior you make changes to database level procedures or functions, MAKE SURE YOU DO CHANGE THE PROCEDURE/FUNCTION CALLS FROM YOUR FORM MODULES with all new IN and OUT parameters, then proceed with compiling your Procedures and Functions @ database level. If anybody is aware of another method to deal with this situation, please pass the information through comments.

Public API driven POS system for Oracle EBS R12 (12.0.4 specific)

Hello guys (and gals)

We are in the process of developing a totally public APIs driven
POS system integration for Oracle EBS R12 (12.0.4 specific) to meet our present
business requirement. We were supported by multiple entities like
forums.oracle.com and ittoolbox.com and we feel it is our commitment towards
the communities to share the knowledge we gathered through last few months.

We tested many APIs, mostly by altering those ones obtained
through multiple blogs, tested them countless times & made them work
through mainly custom forms (developed using Oracle developer 10g) & few
reports. To start with we will be posting the logic, corrected APIs (according
to our specific instance), database level procedures, functions and packages.

So stay tuned, within next few weeks time, we will be releasing
the above mentioned few (other than the original forms and reports) through
most possible means.

How to reproduce the darn “Additional log on information may be required” Windows “false” error message.

Are you feeling glad? During last few updates, Microsoft has fixed(?) this annoying notification to a greater extend. However if you want to reproduce this error do the following:
Disable your network adaptor.
Connect your computer to another available connection (Preferably to a tethered connection)
Disconnect from the new network
Enable your default connection

Now watch the notification popping up and the network connection with “famous” yellow triangle (Warning) until next restart.
