Adding encoding -processing Instruction to XML When Using File Adapter

By default when using Oracle File Adapter to produce XML documents, no encoding="<charset>" attribute is used in the <?xml version="1.0"?> processing instruction.

Default PI:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

and wanted PI:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>


The way to make this work (at least in is to update the XML schema to include two new options in the schema definition.


So, adding these attributes will make the schema look like:

<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" targetNamespace="http://www.fi.oracle.com/harri.kaukovuo"
           elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified"
<xs:element name="ORDERS">




Great utility to free up disk space: JDiskReport

There is not enough of disk space. No matter how large hard disk you get, it will get filled up eventually.


After having only 20MB of free space on my C: -drive, I finally take a closer look at the utilities that can point me the directories and files that are reserving the most of the disk space. I found this great utility:


Good looking, graphical, Java -based, free and easy to use utility to show exactly what are the directories and files consuming the most of your disk space.

After scanning thru my C: and D: drives I could purge almost 13 GB of meaningless files.
