OpenWorld in Two Weeks!

OpenWorld is almost here! In less than 3 weeks, we will all be together again for the biggest Oracle apps and technology reunion of the year... and possibly, the biggest ever, with JavaOne and Oracle Develop co-located with OpenWorld.

This year I am teaming up with my good friend Graham Smith to deliver the "best of" PeopleTools Tips for 2010. Expect to see more PeopleTools 8.50 content in our presentation this year. Graham and I will be on stage Monday evening from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Marriott Golden Gate A (session id S317016). You will NOT want to miss this session!

On Thursday you can see Matthew, Pramod, and myself present Monster Mashups, a session about creating mashups using the PeopleTools 8.50 related content framework. That session will be held at Moscone West room 2014 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (session ID S317448).

Besides these sessions, I'll be working the PeopleTools Integration Tools demo pod Monday morning and all of Tuesday. Later during the week, however, I hope to spend some time in the Fusion Apps UI demo pod.

On Wednesday I plan to spend a half hour at the Oracle Bookstore signing copies of my new book. I will be there from 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM during the Meet the Authors time slot. If you have a copy of my book, bring it with you so I can sign it! If you don't have a copy, I'm sure the Oracle bookstore will be more than happy to sell you a copy. Meet the Authors actually runs Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 10:30 AM, but I have demo grounds responsibilities Monday and Tuesday, so I won't be able to attend the first two days.

Will we be able to view the webcasts of your session?

Oracle usually records the audio and makes both the slides and audio available for customers that purchase the presentations after the conference. Unfortunately, the live demo content video isn't recorded.

Have you ever attempted to present a component that utilizes related content via a Thickbox or Fancybox? I have a component that uses related content and it works great when it is accessed via the portal, but when the user attempts to access the page via my dashboard, which displays the Content "psc" in a thick box it does not work and I see an error message in the firebug console.

TypeError: window.top.ptrcMenu is undefined

This is a strange one, as I serve all the content in the dashboard as psc, but when I access the component via the psc url outside the thickbox, the related content is not there? But it is there inside the thickbox. I looked in WEBLIB_PT_NAV.ISCRIPT1 and found the function buildLNavIframeTemplate that references the related content javascript and it seems to me that this would only get called when the content is being displayed in the portal.

Do you have any thoughts?

@Kevin, related content only works from a /psp/ URL, not a /psc/ URL. Related content relies on services in the ptiframe template, which is delivered in the /psp/ URL, but not in the /psc/ URL. So, what you are seeing is the way it works :(

This is what I thought, I was getting a second error and when I analyzed that error, it was trying to hide the related content error message.
