With the new year, we bring you something exciting!

Two podcasts, one from our customer Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) which higlights WebLogic 12.1.2 benefits such as Coherence Integration and Maven Support. Matt Rosen, Director of Application Development at OOCL, discusses the HotCache feature allowing database changes to be propagated to objects in the Coherence cache, Maven support for developer productivity, and increased operational efficiency with unified installation, configuration, and patching. Listen to Matt for further details.

In our other podcast, industry experts Simon Haslam and Frank Munz review Oracle's WebLogic and Coherence 12.1.2 release. Frank Munz is the author of several books on middleware and cloud computing and is excited about Cloud features such Dynamic Clustering and JMS management while Simon Haslam, an Oracle Fusion Middleware specialist and ACE Director, highlights WebLogic Database integration and native cloud management. Listen to Simon and Frank here.

OpenWorld Recap - Oracle Cloud Application Foundation with WebLogic, Coherence, and more….

Interest in Cloud and Mobility drove significant focus on Oracle Cloud Application Foundation products at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld . In case you missed it, here is a recap:

Oracle WebLogic Server received significant limelight in Executive Vice President Thoman Kurian’s keynote -- The Oracle Cloud Platform: Database as a Service. Java as a Service. Complementing the existing Oracle Cloud Platform Services, the new Oracle Java as a Service provides full control of dedicated Oracle WebLogic Server clusters, supports any Java application, and gives users greater flexibility and choice over their services.

In the classic roadmap session by CAF vice president of product management Mike Lehmann, Mike focused on the recent 12.1.2 release. The session provided insights into how Oracle is evolving this infrastructure to be the next-generation application foundation for its customers to build on in a private cloud setting, Oracle's vision, product plans, and roadmap for this server infrastructure, and how it will be used in the rapidly maturing cloud infrastructure space. We hope the presentation helped you make key decisions about running your enterprise applications on Oracle's enterprise Java server foundation.

Oracle Coherence provided a many sessions at OpenWorld, focused around improving the customer experience with real-time data processing and application scalability to meet mobile and cloud demands. Many customers were excited to learn that Coherence can now update the data cache in real-time, delivering on the expectations of instantaneous updates. All sessions were well-attended, with several customers noting that the 12c release of Coherence was helping them solve strategic problems for both their organization and their own customers.

Developers, Mobile and Cloud!

Chris Tonas kicked off exciting development trends in his General Session “Emerging Trends in Application Development” which covered Oracle’s perspective in addressing the development opportunities in mobile and cloud environments. Mobile continues to be a dominant topic and Chris discussed real-world applications built with Oracle ADF Mobile, a Java based hybrid-mobile framework that helps Java developers build hybrid-mobile apps for iOS and Android from one code base. Java’s mantra to write once, deploy to many – lives on in the mobile arena!

Furthering Oracle’s focus on mobile and cloud computing trends, Chris introduced Oracle Mobile Cloud Services, a mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) that helps mobile app developers readily create more powerful, sophisticated applications that tap into enterprise backend services and simplify enterprise mobile connectivity. Learn more.

Even if you missed this years OpenWorld, you can watch all the keynotes and general sessions here. In addition, you can catch all the current trends and solutions by attending an Oracle Day 2013, the OTN Virtual Developer Day – Harnessing WebLogic and Oracle Coherence, and other Cloud Application Foundation events at following site (link)

Application Grid Demos at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld

There are about 10 demos at this year for application grid products at Oracle OpenWorld. We realize that’s quite a bit to cover. However the good news is they are all located physically very close to each other at Moscone South  Exhibit Hall on Level 1. Here are some of the must-visit demo pods.  

Cloud Foundation and Java EE with WebLogic Server
Oracle WebLogic Server offers high availability, extreme scalability, streamlined management and more.  See how to achieve near-continuous operation with extremely robust and automated fail-over within clusters.  Learn how to scale-out applications horizontally and dynamically by adding additional nodes to live clusters and load-balancing across them.  See how you can gain benefits from WebLogic Server's streamlined management capabilities to configure and monitor application server instances across clusters and domains from a unified environment.      
Application Scale-Out with Oracle Coherence
Oracle Coherence is the industry's leading in-memory data grid solution, enabling large financial services, e-commerce, telecom, logistics, travel, and other enterprises to achieve predictable scalability, unmatched performance, and data reliability for enterprise-wide applications. Oracle Coherence enables applications to work with massive data sets in-memory while simultaneously simplifying the infrastructure of the application.

Oracle Tuxedo and Exalogic: Optimized Solution for Mainframe Migration demo for those of you interested in migrating your mainframe applications to the cloud.

For more information on these and other demo pods, location, and timing, please refer to our ‘Focus On’ document.

How to go from Mainframe to the Cloud?

Running applications on IBM mainframes is expensive, complex, and hinders IT responsiveness. The high costs from frequent forced upgrades, long integration cycles, and complex operations infrastructures can only be alleviated by migrating away from a mainframe environment.  Further, data centers are planning for cloud enablement pinned on principles of operating at significantly lower cost, very low upfront investment, operating on commodity hardware and open, standards based systems, and decoupling of hardware, infrastructure software, and business applications. These operating principles are in direct contrast with the principles of operating businesses on mainframes. By utilizing technologies such as Oracle Tuxedo, Oracle Coherence, and Oracle GoldenGate, businesses are able to quickly and safely migrate away from their IBM mainframe environments. Further, running Oracle Tuxedo and Oracle Coherence on Oracle Exalogic, the first and only integrated cloud machine on the market, Oracle customers can not only run their applications on standards-based open systems, significantly cutting their time to market and costs, they can start their journey of cloud enabling their mainframe applications.

  • Oracle Tuxedo re-hosting tools and techniques can provide automated migration coverage for more than 95% of mainframe application assets, at a fraction of the cost
  • Oracle GoldenGate can migrate data from mainframe systems to open systems, eliminating risks associated with the data migration
  • Oracle Coherence hosts transactional data in memory providing mainframe-like data performance and linear scalability
  • Running Oracle software on top of Oracle Exalogic empowers customers to start their journey of cloud enabling their mainframe applications

Join us in a series of events across the globe where you you'll learn how you can build your enterprise cloud and add tremendous value to your business. In addition, meet with Oracle experts and your peers to discuss best practices and see how successful organizations are lowering total cost of ownership and achieving rapid returns by moving to the cloud.

Register for the Oracle Fusion Middleware Forum event in a city new you!
