June has been an exciting month for us at Oracle, and we are delighted to announce three developer capabilities that will help developers build and deploy new data driven applications quickly. As you may know, Oracle is revolutionizing how data is managed with the introduction of the world’s first Autonomous Database. This ground-breaking Oracle Database technology automates management to deliver unprecedented availability, performance, and security. Traditional database clouds are manually managed and tuned, subject to human error, and easily exposed to costly security vulnerabilities, making the promise of cloud savings and efficiency unattainable.
Autonomous Database is available exclusively through Oracle and is offered in two versions optimized to meet the specialized requirements for Online Transaction Processing and Data Warehousing. Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) Service allows much simpler application development and deployment for enabling real-time analytics, personalization, and fraud detection. Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW) delivers unprecedented reliability, performance, and highly elastic data management that enables data warehouse deployment in seconds.
Here are the developer focused capabilities that are now available on Autonomous Database:
- Oracle Application Express (APEX) is now an included feature of Oracle Autonomous Database. Oracle APEX on Autonomous Database provides a preconfigured, fully managed and secured environment to both build and deploy world-class data-centric applications. Configuration, patching, monitoring, and upgrading of all Oracle Application Express components is fully managed by Oracle, leaving you free to focus on developing your solutions and solving your business problems. With Oracle APEX and low code, your organization can be more agile and develop solutions faster, for less cost, and with greater consistency. You can read more details in this blog.
- Oracle SQL Developer Web on Oracle Autonomous Database - Oracle SQL Developer Web gives you all the functionality of the SQL Developer IDE without having to install any software. Millions of developers use this capability and it is now available on Autonomous Database. From your Autonomous Database service console, you can launch SQL Developer Web, to easily run queries, create tables, generate schema diagrams, and more. Refer to Jeff's blog for more information.
- Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) is now available on Autonomous Database - Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) makes it easy to develop modern REST interfaces for relational data in the Oracle Database and the Oracle Database JSON Document Store. As of today, you can now develop and deploy RESTful Services for your Autonomous Database with native Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) support. You can find more information about ORDS availability in Autonomous Database in Jeff's blog.
