We are happy to announce the Oracle Developer Cloud Service April Release
The new version of Oracle Developer Cloud Service introduces a host of new features. Here is a quick run down of the new functionality you can leverage:
Customers can now use dedicated build servers that will be used for their build jobs. The build servers leverage Oracle Cloud Compute and Storage instances. The dedicated servers can be configured to include various software packages directly from inside DevCS.

Integration with Oracle Cloud Storage allows you to have persistent Maven repositories between builds as well as offering a location to store build artifacts.
This new dedicated and persisted build architecture will make your builds run even faster.
You can now visually define build orchestrations. Chain build jobs and define their order of execution visually with pipelines. The diagram will also show you the progress of your build pipeline, color coded based on the latest status.

You can now build and publish docker containers as part of your continuous integration process. A new option in your build configuration lets you define steps that invoke the various docker commands. In addition you can define connection to docker registries and publish your docker containers in them.

Built in integration with SonarQube allows you to analyze your code as part of the build process and publish the results. Define a connection to your Sonar server, and then monitor the test results of your builds.
