A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
I'm compelled to use Oracle Warehouse Builder for a coming project.
I did number of tests but I hardly make it work. It's bloated and overly complex.
Does anybody has a suggestion of a simple way to master the beast? Any good book or resource beside Oracle's?
Any comment is appreciated.

Yes. OWB is basically a graphical tool to write PL/SQL. The way around it is to keep the part created with the graphics to the bare minimum, then do your development almost completely in PL/SQL.
You never want to try to write real-life business logic in one of those graphic ETL tools.
I looked at one of the early incarnations of OWB, and didn't enjoy the experience much. I was using Informatica at the time and it seemed clunky even in comparison to that.
The forums at TechNet might be a better place to find resources.

I've been trying to make it work for the past month and unfortunately I'm still where I began. What a waste of time!!! These tools are supposed to make your life easier, right? I've been using Oracle tools for almost ten years now and with every new app/release they getting more complicated.
Now, I'm about to ditch OWB but I don't know what other tools are around... that work.
Any suggestions? I think ANYTHING would be better than this.
