A brief about time in milliseconds and conversion to a human-readable form

 Many a time, we come across situations wherein we need to convert the timestamp available(a human-readable form of date-time representation) into milliseconds(long number representation of date-time) or vice-versa.  For example DateTime in ISO 8601 DateTime in milliseconds 2020-11-15T08:00:00+00:00 1605427200000 ms 2020-07-01T13:00:00+00:00 1593608400000 ms Seeing the long millisecond number, we generally get confused about how it is converted. We have conversion functions available in almost every programming language which we can think of. But, we always wonder about the logic behind the same. This article will give a brief idea about such questions. Hope you enjoy reading this article. Please share your thoughts in below comment section. Note: UTC time zone is considered as standard for this article. For other time zones, offset might need to be

Create Delimited String from XML Nodes and Vice Versa in SOA 12c

A delimited string is a string representation of data separated by a delimiter(e.g. ","). A simple representation of the delimited string will look like. Delimited String Examples Sample-1-- Delimiter as ","        Value1,Value2,Value3   Sample-2-- Delimiter as "|"        Value1|Value2|Value3 If we want to represent the above set of delimited values in the form of an XML document under some root and parent tag. The representation will look like this. XML Example <root xmlns="">   <Values>     <value>Value1</value>     <value>Value2</value>     <value>Value3</value>   </Values> </root> Sometimes we may need to convert values coming in delimited string to an xml document or vice versa. Since delimited string is similar to csv format. We can create

Import and Export MDS artifacts in SOA 12c

Oracle SOA-MDS (Metadata Store) repository can be used to access artifacts that can be shared among various SOA composites. For example, we have one common schema for a business fault that is consumed by various applications. Instead of having a localized copy of that schema file in each SOA composite, we can have it in a centralized repository (SOA-MDS). Another benefit of using SOA-MDS is that we can change the file at runtime and need not redeploy the complete code. While developing SOA composites, we use SOA design-time repository, later these changes can be synced to the SOA servers. In this article, we will discuss 2 ways to sync the artifacts available in the SOA design-time repository and the SOA servers. Establishing the connection to SOA-MDS in Jdeveloper. Using SOA em console or Fusion Middleware control console. Moving a file between SOA composite to SOA design-time MDS repository Let's assume, we created a businessFault.xsd which wi
