Email Etiquette Tips

Subject Line: 

  • Be short, yet clearso readers know what you're writing about and can find your note later.
  • Indicate urgency and whether action is required. For example: "Cust Sat Issue-Need response today"

Body of Note: 

  • State the objective of your message in the first line: "This is to ask for your approval....."; "This is to invite you..."; etc.. This lets the recipient know right away what action is needed.
  • Be concise.
  • Choose words carefully.
  • Write with the audience in mind.
  • Limit your message to one subject.
  • Limit your message to 25 lines... about one computer screen.
  • Use bulleted lists when appropriate.
  • Use "sections" ("twisties") where appropriate in longer notes.
  • Keep paragraphs short.
  • Add a blank line between paragraphs.
  • Use bold type to highlight main points.
  • Don’t SHOUT ... using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is considered shouting.


  • Don’t send blanket messages to everyone on a distribution list if only 3 or 4 people need the information.
  • The recipient who needs to take action, should be directly addressed in the TO field and the greeting/opening of the note.
  • Recipients copied (CC'd) on a note should not be expected to take action. It's FYI only.
  • When marking e-mail urgent, ask yourself the question "Is urgent action really required by the recipient?" Only send urgent e-mail if the answer is yes.
  • Don’t forward large-file attachments unless you know the recipient wants or needs them. (Use Connections to share large files).
  • Don’t forward trails of notes unless it's necessary to make sense of your note.
  • Don’t use e-mail to address "emotional" topics. Speak directly.
  • Ensure that you have a footer on your e-mails -- your name and contact details such as your phone number.

Thought Provokers: 

  • People will learn about you from the e-mail you send. Ensure your communication is courteous and professional.
  • Get to know the communication style of those with whom you communicate frequently. How often do they access their e-mails? Do they prefer urgent messages by e-mail, instant message or phone?

CDI Best Practices with Real-Life Examples [TUT3287]

Session ID: TUT3287
Session Title / Download Link : CDI Best Practices with Real-Life Examples [TUT3287]
Session Type: Tutorial Session
Session Abstract:
As the adoption of Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) for Java EE API grows, it is important to understand how to use CDI effectively to maximize the benefits of using a loosely coupled, type-safe, annotation-driven dependency injection solution. This session outlines the best practices for using CDI, such as annotations versus XML, @Named as a qualifier, qualifier type safety versus verbosity, effective use of producers/disposers, using scopes properly, best practices for using conversations, defining effective stereotypes, interceptors versus decorators, static versus dynamic injection/lookup, CDI versus Java EE resource injection, using CDI with EJB 3.1, CDI/JSF 2 integration patterns, and CDI/JPA 2 usage patterns.

How to handle percent (%) underscore (_) and quotes within SQL LIKE queries

Oracle handles special characters with the ESCAPE clause, and the most common ESCAPE is for the wildcard percent sign (%), and the underscore (_).  For handling quotes within a character query, you must add two quotes for each one that is desired.

--Retrive columns name ends with underscore for owner 'XYZ'
select  *
from all_tab_columns
where owner = 'XYZ'
and column_name like '%\_' escape '\'
order by table_name , column_name
