Free online Training Oracle JET Web Components November 2018

  Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) empowers developers by providing a free and open source modular client-side toolkit based on modern JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 design and development principles. In the development of JET, Oracle believes that following standards and specifications is extremely important whenever possible, especially in the context of enterprise applications. The W3C Web Component specification is one of these standards, with the potential of enabling a larger vision of building and consuming reusable components across a team of developers and, even, across organizations throughout the industry. Oracle itself is embracing the W3C Web Component specification to provide a consistent way of interoperating with, and extending, Oracle products from all corners of the company. For example, imagine the power of being able create an Oracle JET Web Component that can be reused across Oracle's PaaS, SaaS, and Database tools like APEX, without changing your code. In the same way, any other application with its client-side developed by means of JET can benefit from these advantages, too. In this two week Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) you will learn: Understanding the W3C Web Component standard. How Oracle JET follows the W3C Web Component standard. How to set up JET Web Components. The architecture of JET Web Components. Working with Attributes, Properties, Events, Methods, Slots. Translation/Internationalization of JET Web Components. Use Case: CRUD application development with JET Web Components. Use Case: Extending the Oracle Visual Builder Cloud.

ADF 12.2.x : Conditional Showing Message Instead of List of Values Popup by Luc Bors

Today I had to fix an issue in one of our ADF applications. For those of you working with ADF (as I do too occasionally) this might be valuable, so I decided to share this. The application is based on an old Oracle Forms applications and I had to implement the following functionality: FRM-41830 : List of Values contains no entries. In other words (more ADF like) : If you are about to render a List of Values and that List of Values contains no rows, just show a message instead of showing the List of Values. In this post I will describe how I was able to implement this although it turned out to be a challenge. Below are the steps that I took. Note that the Application can be downloaded from GIT. 1) I use a UI pattern where we use readonly table and do edits in a popup. That means that any List of Values will add an additional popup to the UI. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Offline Persistence Toolkit - Simple GET Response Example with JET by Andrejus Baranovskis

We have new tool from Oracle which can help to simplify offline logic implementation for JS apps.  In this post I will describe how to use Oracle Offline Persistence Toolkit with Oracle JET. However Offline Persistence is not constrained by JET usage only, this toolkit is available on NPM and can be integrated with other JS solutions. I should emphasise - offline toolkit primary role is to enable mobile hybrid apps to work offline. In my opinion, toolkit usage doesn't stop here. It can enable user to continue his work, when internet connection is available, but back-end server goes down. Technically user would remain online in this case, but in practice application will be broken - no response from back-end for REST calls. Offline persistence toolkit could help to solve such cases - user could continue working with local cache, until back-end is down. If you want to learn how offline toolkit works and how to use its API, go to GitHub page - check readme, add it to your JET app and try to run/test. Hands-on is the best way to learn something new.

Announcing Offline Persistence Toolkit for JavaScript Client Applications by: Graeme Mawson

We are excited to announce the open source release on GitHub of the offline-persistence-toolkit for JavaScript client applications, developed by the Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (Oracle JET) team. The Offline Persistence Toolkit is a client-side JavaScript library that provides caching and offline support at the HTTP request layer. This support is transparent to the user and is done through the Fetch API and an XHR adapter. HTTP requests made while the client device is offline are captured for replay when connection to the server is restored. Additional capabilities include a persistent storage layer, synchronization manager, binary data support and various configuration APIs for customizing the default behavior. Whilst the toolkit is primarily intended for hybrid mobile applications created using Oracle JET, it can be used within any JavaScript client application that requires persistent storage and/or offline data access. The Offline Persistence Toolkit simplifies life for application developers by providing a response caching solution that works well across modern browsers and web views. The toolkit covers common caching cases with a minimal amount of application-specific coding, but provides flexibility to cover non-trivial cases as well. In addition to providing the ability to cache complete response payloads, the toolkit supports "shredding" of REST response payloads into objects that can be stored, queried and updated on the client while offline. The architecture diagram illustrates the major components of the toolkit and how an application interacts with it: Read the complete article here.   Developer Partner Community For regular information become a member in the WebLogic Partner Community please visit: http://www.oracle.com/partners/goto/wls-emea ( OPN account required).

Building Oracle JET CRUD Applications Interacting with an Oracle Database Learn to build an Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (Oracle JET) CRUD application that interacts with Oracle Database via Oracle REST Data Services by Yuli Vasiliev

As the name implies, a CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) application is supposed to not only access the underlying data, but also to allow the user to perform the entire set of operations to manipulate that data, including create, update, and delete operations. This article illustrates how you can build a CRUD application that supports both data access and data manipulation operations. To build the article sample, you will use Oracle JET, Oracle Database, Oracle REST Data Services, and Oracle SQL Developer. What You Will Learn This article provides an example to bring together the software components outlined above in order to build an Oracle JET CRUD application interacting with a dataset in Oracle Database. In particular, you'll walk through a set of step-by-step instructions, showing you how to Prepare a dataset in the underlying database to be used in an Oracle JET application Configure Oracle REST Data Services to turn an Oracle Database instance into a RESTful API service. Test an Oracle REST Data Services service's endpoints from the command line using the cURL tool Build an Oracle JET application that interacts with an Oracle Database instance via an Oracle REST Data Services RESTful service. Perform insert, update, and delete operations in an Oracle JET application against data stored in the underlying database The quickest way to implement the tasks above is to take advantage of an existing Oracle JET application, modifying its functionality as needed. So, the example application discussed in the rest of this article is based on the OracleJET-CommonModel-CRUD sample covered in detail in the "Creating a CRUD Application Using Oracle JET" section of the JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) Developing Applications with Oracle JET guide. The key point is that the OracleJET-CommonModel-CRUD sample supports every type of CRUD operation, and it includes a mock REST server that simulates (mocks) a RESTful service. So, by using this sample as the starting point for another demo CRUD application, you get a ready-to-use view, and you need to make some minor changes to the viewModel to make it work with a real RESTful service.

Linear Regression – Machine Learning with TensorFlow and Oracle JET UI Explained by Andrejus Baranovskis

Machine learning topic is definitely popular these days. Some get wrong assumptions about it - they think machine could learn by itself and its kind of magic. The truth is - there is no magic, but math behind it. Machine will learn the way math model is defined for learning process. In my opinion, the best solution is a combination of machine learning math and algorithms.  Here I could relate to chatbots keeping conversational context - language processing can be done by machine learning with neural network, while intent and context processing can be executed by programmable algorithms. If you are starting to learn machine learning - there are two essential concepts to start with: 1. Regression 2. Classification This post is focused around regression, in the next posts I will talk about classification. Regression is a method which calculates the best fit for a curve to summarize data. Its up to you which type of curve to choose, you should assume which type will be most suitable (this can be achieved with trial and error too) based on given data set. Regression goal is to understand data points by discovering the curve that might have generated them.

Using the Oracle Cloud with our Oracle JET applications by Jose Rodrigues

Welcome to the 2nd article on our new Blog series about Oracle JET and Oracle Cloud. Today we’ll be working on two main subjects: · Setup our Oracle Cloud account, as well as the cloud services we need (Database, Storage. The Application Runtime Cloud Service will be configured in another article and maybe a few others along the way…) o If you already have an account and configured the necessary services, you can skip this. · Configuring our Oracle SQL Developer to connect to our cloud Database. · Create a test table in the Cloud. Without further ado, let’s dig into the cloud. Setup your cloud account The first thing you need to do is to create your Oracle Cloud account. You can go to Oracle Cloud’s homepage at https://cloud.oracle.com and either buy services outright or opt for a trial. In our case, we’ll go for the trial option. Click that green “Try for Free” button. The Oracle Cloud homepage You’ll be taken to the trial page, where you can create your free account (use the “Create a Free Account” button). This page also has some estimations on how much time will the free 300 USD cloud credits grant you. From my personal experience, those estimations are way off the mark. The real numbers are much lower. Trial page Anyway, once you click the “Create a Free Account” button, the site will take you to a sign-up form, where you’ll fill in your information and supply a mobile number for verification. Please take into account that you must provide a real mobile number, as Oracle will send you a confirmation code that you’ll need to put on the sign-up form. Also, pay attention to the Default Data Region: you should select the data center that is closest to you, to increase the overall performance.

Getting Started With Oracle JET and Oracle Cloud by Jose Rodrigues

We’ll kick off this year with a new blog series in Red Mavericks, devoted to a more pure development thread with Oracle development tools (broadly speaking). I was most impressed with Oracle’s own JET MOOC, which provided with a nice introduction of the toolkit, and allowed me to clean up those spider webs from my programming background and returned to the good old keyboard bashing routine. This posed a significant difference from what I’ve been doing in the last 10 years, which were mainly filled with Workflow and BPM projects. The Oracle JET MOOC also helped me return to a language I only grasped some 20 years ago… JavaScript. And since JavaScript is all the rage nowadays, it was the perfect excuse to (re)learn it using today’s programming patterns. Finally, the Oracle JET MOOC ended up with a very important message: give something back to the community and help others! So it only seemed fitting that I would take some of my time to set up something that could help others that, like me, are not (or no longer) into programming, and particularly into JavaScript. So this new blogging series is born. My goal is to publish a new article every 2 weeks, but if I manage to get a bit more time I’ll try to reduce it to a week’s interval. The Oracle JET Oracle JET is a toolkit released by (surprise…) Oracle, which addresses the need to build Enterprise applications in JavaScript. Its main focus is the frontend, with backend services being used mainly via REST web services. As mentioned several times by Oracle, JET is not a framework, but rather a toolkit, a collection of frameworks that have been put together, tested and enhanced to develop and deliver high-quality enterprise applications. So JET is not a direct substitute for AngularJS or React. It uses its components, such as JQuery and KnockoutJS, to address the same needs as those two JavaScript frameworks. Because the target is to build enterprise applications, JET incorporates thoroughly tested components that have been on the market for quite some time and are mature. This contrasts with the “Java Framework flavor of the week” approach, in which people adopt the newest framework because it’s the best thing since the invention of the wheel. Don’t get me wrong: going for the newest coolest stuff can be great. There are loads of applications in which using one of these newer frameworks can greatly reduce your work and deliver very good results. But, within organizations, there are several things to consider when choosing frameworks, such as how many resources are available in the market with that kind of knowledge (something that typically is very low on recent frameworks), what kind of community support is available, how do frameworks work with each other to accelerate development (and what side effects or bugs are there), etc… Organizations go for stability and maturity above all, because that ensures quality and risk reduction.

Modify your nodemanager.properties in wlst by Martien van den Akker

In 2016 I did several posts on automatic installs of Fusion MiddleWare, including domain creation using wlst. With weblogic 12c you automatically get a pre-configured per-domain nodemanager. But you might find the configuration not completely suiting your whishes. It would be nice to update the nodemanager.properties file to with your properties in the same script. Today I started with upgrading our Weblogic Tuning and Troubleshooting training to 12c, and one of the steps is to adapt the domain creation script. In the old script, the AdminServer is started right way, to add the managed server to the domain. In my before mentioned script, I do that offline. But since I like to be able to update the nodemanager.properties file I figured that out. Earlier, I created  a function to just write a new property file: Read the complete article here.

Configuring Unique Certificates on Virtual Servers in an Oracle Traffic Director Domain

Oracle Traffic Director distributes the requests that it receives from clients to servers in the back end based on the specified load-balancing method and routes the requests based on the specified rules. When you configure your system for load balancing, you can configure multiple instances of virtual servers (for different sites or portals) that are associated with a single listener. For example, a hospital with branches in two cities may use different virtual servers and may still communicate through the same listener (to the server). In this tutorial, you learn how to create multiple virtual servers for different sites and how to attach unique certificates to each virtual server. Then, the virtual servers can communicate with the listener. Get the lab here.

Test Oracle Management Cloud Log Analytics with WebLogic Server by Markus Lohn

In this blogpost I will share my first experiences monitoring a Fusion Middleware environment with Oracle Management Cloud (OMC). For this test drive I used a WebLogic SOA Domain running on a Virtual Box image on my local machine. OMC provides several components to monitor systems and infrastructures. I used the component Log Analytics. In order to upload log files from WebLogic Server to OMC an agent must be installed and configured on the target system. OMC defines different agent types with different responsibilities: Agent Types A gateway is an agent that acts as a channel between Oracle Management Cloud and data collector or cloud agents. Multiple data collector or cloud agents can communicate with Oracle Management Cloud through a single gateway.

How to build and deploy your Spring Boot App to Oracle Container Service Classic with Wercker by Marco Buss

In the last days i was searching a way to package my little Spring Boot app as a docker container and deploy that container to the Oracle Container Service Classic (OCSC). My first idea was to use the Oracle Developer Cloud Service to do that. My naive first thought was: „Hey two Oracle Cloud Services, that must be an easy task.“ But no, it was not an easy task, involved only some klicks on the console. It can be just easy, when i want to deploy simply the created .war file but docker containers… no. But what was the problem? Well, the Developer Cloud Service uses Hudson to build the code. So far so god. The problem here is, we have no docker installation an we can´t install it during the build. In the end, building the project is no problem, creating the container is actually impossible.

Oracle WebLogic and Java Cloud Service Roadmap by Michel Schildmeijer

Since I work with WebLogic, 18 years now already, every year a new road-map appears about the new and coming features of Oracle WebLogic and this is presented during Oracle OpenWorld. While everybody is at this moment already back to business as usual, I'd like to give an overview of the already existing and new coming features discussed last year in San Francisco. Everything is "Serverless" - " No SQL" -"Low Code" - "SOA is dead", "Micro-everything and death to the Monolith!" Of course these terms does not fully represent what they appear to at first sight, but still, when you're from the "old school server/ sys admin" I can understand it sometimes is dazzling and sometimes hard to put them all together.  But when you look down deeper, you will discover the relationships between these terms and more in specific what they mean. WebLogic Server "Current" and "Next" Nowadays, we don't only speak of WebLogic Server anymore but also about the Java Cloud Service, which is WebLogic as PaaS. In this post I will give my view of the new and coming features. WebLogic Server will still exists as the key Java Application Server from Oracle, however it will be the " next generation " application server where old and new concepts go hand in hand. Especially the move to the cloud which is already happening for a few years will be more and more emphasized by Oracle. How ever, either speaking of WebLogic Server of Java Cloud Service, the features are pretty much the same so I will speak of WebLogic Server, it will also mean it's Java Cloud Service. Current WebLogic Server versions Generally speaking, current most important and used version are: 10.3.6 ( 11gR1 including all patchlevels ) which came out in 2009 12.1.3 (12cR1 including all patchlevels) which came out in 2011 12.2 (12cR2 including all patchlevels) which came out in 2015 12.2 made an important step to continuous availibility and multitenancy: Multidatacenter availability with Oracle Traffic Director and Coherence and automated failover with SiteGuard.

Deploying a Python App to Oracle ACCS by Blaine Carter

Let's take a look at how to deploy a Python app to Oracle's Application Container Cloud Service by way of an example! ACCS provides a pre-configured platform (Platform as a Service) where you can quickly deploy and host your applications. For many of today’s applications, the hosting server is just that, a place to host the application. Most of the time the only thing an application needs from the server is to have it support the application’s programming language and to provide in and out connections through ports. Using a PAAS such as ACCS frees you from all of the extra work of configuring and maintaining a server and allows you to focus on perfecting your application. ACCS supports multiple languages but for this post, I’ll focus on Python. DinoDate For the examples, I will be deploying the DinoDate application. DinoDate was written as an open source learning application that can be used to demonstrate database concepts with multiple programming languages. It currently has both Python and NodeJS mid-tier applications and is backed by an Oracle Database. The following instructions show how to deploy the Python version of DinoDate to an Oracle ACCS instance. Read the complete article here.

The Future Is Open Why Oracle’s cloud-native stack is fueling innovation by Alexandra Weber Morales

The technologies of tomorrow have the potential to change the world for the better, whether it’s via planet-scale apps scheduled with Kubernetes Federation or blockchain-based trust with Hyperledger. These two examples are both enabled by open source software (OSS)—but OSS is only one facet of Oracle’s commitment to being open. “When we say Oracle is open, we don’t just mean open source. We mean that we support non-Oracle technologies as well as the ability to work in an ecosystem that is broader than Oracle. We definitely believe that,” says Amit Zavery, senior vice president for Oracle Cloud Platform. Zavery describes a vision for Oracle that includes open source tools, databases, platforms, and languages; managed services to make OSS more intuitive to use; and open collaboration, innovation, and interoperability. “We’re taking important open source innovations and providing automation, management, and enterprise-grade capabilities around them,” Zavery says, pointing to Oracle Cloud services for managing a plethora of OSS technologies, including Kubernetes (such as Global Multi-Cluster Management Fn, Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, the Cassandra NoSQL database (by way of Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service), TensorFlow, and Caffe (via Oracle Artificial Intelligence Platform Cloud Service), to name just a few.

Oracle Forms & Reports 12.2.1.2.0 in Docker by Dirk Nachbar

JET UI Shell with Dynamic Tabs Implementation by Andrejus Baranovskis

  I will describe and provide sample code - how to implement dynamic tabs in Oracle JET. This is useful for module loading, default JET template comes with static tabs - this works OK for the apps with smaller number of modules. When menu structure is more complex, it makes sense to load tabs for each module dynamically, when module is selected from the menu. This allows user to focus on modules he is working on, well just same as tabs in your Web browser. Dynamic tabs are only visual placeholders, I'm using JET router to load module and keeping tab selection in synch. There are multiple benefits for such approach - module loading is following standard JET implementation with router, visually it looks like we have modules loaded using tabs. Overall implementation for dynamic UI Shell tabs with JET becomes quite simple, when relying on JET router. Read the complete article here.

Embedding OpenLayers in Oracle JET for Advanced Maps and GIS style User Interfaces by Lucas Jellema

Oracle JET is a toolkit for the creation of rich web applications. Many applications will have location-related aspects. Such applications can benefit from advanced map capabilities – for presenting data in maps, allowing users to interact with maps in order to formulate queries, navigate to relevant details or manipulate data. OpenLayers is one of the most prominent open source JavaScript libraries for working with maps in web applications. It provides an API for building rich web-based geographic applications similar to Google Maps and Bing Maps. One of the geographic data providers that OpenLayers works well with is Open Street Map (OSM) – also fully open source. In this article, I will report on my first steps with OpenLayers and OSM integrated in Oracle JET. In a few simple steps, I will create the JET application illustrated below –a  mix of a JET Checkbox Set where countries can be selected and an OpenLayers map that is manipulated from JavaScript to show (and hide) markers for the countries that are selected (and deselected).

The new Excel-killer from Oracle by Sten Vesterli

For a long time, APEX was Oracle’s Excel-killer. With the ability to upload a CSV file and create a matching table and then build an application on top of that, this was the easiest way to convert a spreadsheet into a secure multi-user application. Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS) has now appeared as a serious challenger, offering some improvements over the way APEX handes Excel files. For example, the December 2017 version of VBCS has the ability to import Excel files directly without having to turn them into CSV files first. Separate worksheets in the Excel files become separate business objects. During the import, you can also define reference relationship for lookup values. This allows you to upload an Excel file with one master worksheet and a number of value lists as separate sheets, and produce a business object with all lookups in one operation.

A first glimpse to the Oracle Intelligent Bot Cloud Service by Rolando Carrasco

Quick Look at Oracle's Cloud Chatbots Platform Chatbots have become an important platform to interact with our users using a well known tool: chat. We are not only talking about making this type of platform available in channels like Facebook, what we really want is the automatization of tasks so users can use it with confidence. We want this tool to become a transactional tool not only informative. In the future it might be predictive and have interactions with backend systems and API’s. This article is a quick view at the new chatbot platform provided by Oracle. We will be reviewing some details about chatbots that will work as an introduction for new and more extensive articles to come in the near future. First of all we need to understand that chatbots are a Cloud based platform. Here are a couple of reasons why: First of all, Oracle has become a Cloud based company, and there is no turning back. Not only Oracle but the rest of the industry is now Cloud based. Chatbots are a platform that seems to work perfectly in the Cloud. Due to the type of interactions they have it makes perfect sense they are a Cloud based platform. I am talking about interactions with, APIs, Facebook, Web Portals, etc. Having said that let's start with an overall review. The case we are going to review is based in a lab that I had access to and training provided by Oracle to me and the rest of my team. Read the complete article here.

About Smart WebLogic Server Monitoring and Diagnostic Tool WLSDM by Govindan Padmanaban

I have been working on WebLogic server for more than 9 years. Often, I monitor server log files, Server status, Testing Data source connections, JMS servers, deployed application status, CPU/Memory usage and much more. If any of these objects got down or broken, then the associated deployed application will get into trouble. For example, a web application dependent will go down if the associated Data source (DB Connection) goes down, or a deployed application give a poor response if the CPU/MEMORY is full. Many times I thought, what if a tool available in the market to monitor and analyze the WebLogic server resources (logs, Data source, servers etc) and it would be awesome if it alerts me as well on anything wrong goes on the WebLogic server. The WLSDM is the tool that I have been looking for so long. It’s a complete WebLogic server monitoring and diagnostic tool. The WLSDM will monitor your WebLogic domain and alert us any wrong thing happens on the server. WLSDM can save plenty of our productive time. It does not have or store anything in the database, it’s a lightweight and responsive UI layer. Before diving into this tool, I would say why I like the WLSDM too much.

5 more Weblogic features you probably didn’t know by Nicolas Fonnegra

According to Wikipedia the first Weblogic version was released in November 1997 by the name of  „WebLogic Tengah“ (happy 20th Birthday mate !!!). With so much history behind, it is difficult to elaborate a list with only 5 not so popular features. But since the first article was getting pretty big and you readers don’t like to scroll much, here is a list of 5 more Weblogic features your probably didn’t know. Number 5: The Weblogic Session Cookies What is it about ? Let’s start with an easy one. With this feature you can define how Weblogic stores the admin console session cookies in the browser. When to use it ? Have you ever had to work with two or more Weblogic admin consoles in the same browser? In those cases you will experience how your session gets immediately invalidated the moment you switch between consoles. The reason behind this phenomenon is that Weblogic stores the session cookies with the same name. Use this feature to change the name and you will be able to work with multiple admin consoles in the same browser. How to use it? Configure a different cookie name for each of your domains. To do this simple go to administration console -> domain -> general -> advanced and change the ‚console cookie name‘.

Connect Oracle Developer Cloud Service to Application Container Cloud Service by Carsten Wiesbaum

About six month ago I enjoyed the developer experience Oracle provided with his cloud portfolio. In my opinion the majority of services was integrated seamlessly. Especially the integration between Oracle Developer Cloud Service, a complete CI/CD as a service solution, in combination with various other infrastructure and platform services met my needs perfectly. Unfortunately, I experienced some problems since Oracle switched to its new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). I was not able to create a new connection between Developer Cloud, which resides on the traditional Cloud infrastructure, and Application Container Cloud on OCI. Within this post I explain how to create a successful connection. Retrieving Required Values To create a new ACC connection the following values are required: • Data Center • Identity Domain • Username • Password Username and password are the same with which you login to your OCI MyServices portal. ACC data center can be found on its “View Service Details” view under “Data Region”. Read the complete article here.

Oracle Open Sources Kubernetes Tools for Serverless Deployment and Intelligent Multi-Cloud Management

Oracle today announced that it is open sourcing the Fn project Kubernetes Installer and Global Multi-Cluster Management, two projects designed to help developers build the next generation of container native applications leveraging Kubernetes. Both projects are integrated with the Oracle Container Native Application Development Platform, providing developers with an integrated and enterprise-grade platform to build, deploy and operate applications. The Fn project Installer follows the recent open-sourcing of the Fn project and allows developers to leverage serverless capabilities on any Kubernetes environment, including within Oracle’s new managed Kubernetes service, Oracle Container Engine Cloud Service. Oracle also open sourced a technical preview of Global Multi-Cluster Management, a new set of distributed cluster management features for Kubernetes federation that intelligently manages planet scale applications that are hybrid, multi-region and multi-cloud. With this set of capabilities, customers can quickly build and auto-scale global applications or spot clusters on-demand and enable cloud migrations and hybrid scenarios.

Fn Project and Open Source FaaS by Chris Suttles

I decided to take a attend a Meetup on Serverless (Oracle Fn project), and it was a lot of fun. The first talk was excellent, and that will be the focus of this post. Fn Presentation The talk started with some history on the speaker, Chad Arimura, and some of the companies he's launched, as well as a few obligatory slides to level set things ("What is serverless?"). After the brief pre-amble, Chad got into the meat of the presentation, which was close to the quickstart on the Fn github page. There were some important additions, like "hot functions", and the presentation included gracefully fielding some questions like "Why is this a thing?". Chad pointed people to this post on Medium several times for understanding the purpose and application of Fn: 8 Reasons why we built the Fn Project The "put it on a bumper sticker" explanation was "multi-cloud, open source lambda", and that was good enough to get my attention.

The Fn Project by Chad Arimura

On this second monthiversary since the open sourcing of the Fn Project live on stage at JavaOne in San Francisco, I thought I’d reflect on its momentum a bit. And coming off Thanksgiving and into the holidays, it’s always nice to remember what we’re thankful for and not forget to admire the beauty of the journey. A journey that we embarked on because of our belief in a few simple truths: first, that serverless is the next frontier for modern app development, and two, that serverless apps should be build on open source stacks and natively multi-cloud. Bringing new open source technologies successfully to market takes many stars to align including a team that gels, a thriving community, and of course an incredible amount of innovation with a relentless and never-ending focus on user experience and empowerment.

GraphQL As An Alternative Approach To REST– Meetup September 17th 2018 London

GraphQL As An Alternative Approach To REST – Luis Weir Originally designed by Facebook to allow its mobile clients to define exactly what data should be send back by an API and therefore avoid unnecessary roundtrips and data usage, GraphQL is a JSON based query language for Web APIs. Since it was open sourced by Facebook in 2015, it has undergone very rapid adoption and many companies have already switch to the GraphQL way of building APIs – see http://graphql.org/users. However, with some many hundreds of thousands of REST APIs publicly available today (and many thousands others available internally), what are the implications of moving to GraphQL? Is it really worth the effort of replacing REST APIs specially if they’re successful and performing well in production? What are the pros/cons of using GraphQL? What tools / languages can be used for GraphQL? What about API Gateways? What about API design? Schedule: What we will do: 6:15 pm Doors open – Beer & Pizza 7:00 pm Kickoff by Phil Wilkins & Luis Weir 7:05 pm GraphQL As An Alternative Approach To REST – Luis Weir 9:00pm End of event Location: Oracle London City Customer Visitor Center Floor 5 room Knightsbridge One South Place, London EC2M 2RB Google maps: www.tinyurl.com/OracleCityOffice   For details please visit the registration page here.

Oracle ADF on Docker Container by Andrejus Baranovskis

Want to run Oracle ADF on Docker? This is possible, I will explain how. If you are new to Docker, it may require to spend significant amount of time to get started with all different bits and pieces. I will try to explain all essential steps, so that you will get up to speed quickly.First of all you need to have DB accessible, check my previous post explaining how to run Oracle DB on Docker - Oracle Database Docker Image in Docker Cloud (Digital Ocean). DB is required to install RCU schema for WebLogic installation with JRF files. I have built my own Oracle Fusion Middleware Docker image using Oracle Docker images - Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure on Docker. First step is to build Oracle JDK (Server JRE) image, this is pre-requisite to build Oracle Fusion Middleware Docker image. Read through instructions documented on Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure on Docker GitHub page. You should navigate to Oracle Java folder (download Oracle Docker files from GitHub link mentioned above) and copy there JDK installation file: Read the complete article here.

JDev 12c: Debug Application Module Tester (BC4JTester) Problems by Timo Hahn

When you develop ADF Web Application you often use the ADF ApplicationModule Tester (BC4J Tester) to quickly test your business components data model and your self-written code in any EntityObject, ViewObject or ApplicationModule. For more information about how to do this look at JDeveloper & ADF: Use the Application Module Tester (BC4J Tester) to Test all your BusinessLogic. Users who use one of the latest JDeveloper versions 12.2.1.1.0 and newer may have noticed, that the BC4J Tester application starts without an error, but doesn’t show the dialog. I run into this a couple of times lately and decided to dig into this problem. On the Oracle Development Spaces, I saw some threads about this too. The reason for this behavior is that any EO, VO or other methods in the application module have an error, which can’t be found during compile time. Read the complete article here.

UI Customizations with Oracle JET in Oracle WebCenter Sites 12c by: Mike Field

Before You Begin This blog assumes that you're familiar with Oracle JET, its custom modules, and overriding the default path/suffix configuration for JET modules so that you can include them as assets in your WebCenter Sites implementation. Otherwise, you may want to begin by reading this blog: Creating Oracle JET Modules as Assets in Oracle WebCenter Sites. Overview WCS 11g’s Admin and Contributor UIs are built with a version of Dojo that does not support AMD modules out-of-the-box. This means if you’re customizing the UI with Oracle JET modules, you can include requireJS as you would normally for Oracle JET. However, 12c’s version of Dojo does support AMD modules, so you can no longer include requireJS for your Oracle JET modules. (If you try, both Dojo and requireJS declare the “define” and “require” functions, which then conflict with each other and your code breaks.) The solution for 12c is to use Dojo’s module loader instead of requireJS. You shouldn’t have to change your JET modules, you just need to update the Oracle JET and Dojo configurations. Steps and Examples In 11g, you used to be able to load an Oracle JET module like this: Read the complete article here.   Developer Partner Community For regular information become a member in the WebLogic Partner Community please visit: http://www.oracle.com/partners/goto/wls-emea ( OPN account required).

Implementing Authentication for REST API calls from JET Applications embedded in ADF or WebCenter Portal using JSON Web Token (JWT) by Lucas Jellema

The situation discussed in this article is as follows: a rich client web application (JavaScript based, could be created with Oracle JET or based on Angular/Vue/React/Ember/…) is embedded in an ADF or WebCenter Portal application. Users are authenticated in that application through a regular login procedure that leverages the OPSS (Oracle Platform Security Service) in WebLogic, authenticating against an LDAP directory or another type of security provider. The embedded rich web application makes calls to REST APIs. These APIs enforce authentication and authorization – to prevent rogue calls. Note: these APIs have to be accessible from wherever the users are working with the ADF or WebCenter Portal application. This article describes how the authenticated HTTP Session context in ADF – where we have the security context with authenticated principal with subjects and roles – can be leveraged to generate a secure token that can be passed to the embedded client web application and subsequently used by that application to make calls to REST APIs that can verify through that token that an authenticated user is making the call. The REST API can also extract relevant information from the token – such as the user’s identity, permissions or entitlements and custom attributes. The token could also be used by the REST API to retrieve additional information about the user and his or her session context. Note: if calls are made to REST APIs that are deployed as part of the enterprise application (same EAR file) that contains the ADF or WebCenter Portal application, then the session cookie mechanism ensures that the REST API handles the request in the same [authenticated]session context. In that case, there is no need for a token exchange.

Conditional Navigation based on Queries in Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service by Shay Shmeltzer

A couple of threads on the Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service forum asked about writing code in buttons in VBCS that compares values entered in a page to data in business objects and perform conditional navigation based on the values. In a past blog I showed the code needed for querying VBCS objects from the UI, but another sample never hurts, so here is another demo... For this demo I'm going to show how to do it in a login flow - assuming you have a business object that keeps usernames and passwords, and you want to develop a page where a user types a user/pass combination and you need to verify that this is indeed a valid combination that exist in the business object. (In reality, if you want to do user authentication in VBCS - you should use the built in security frameworks and not code it this way. I'm just using this as an example.) Here is a quick video of the working app - with pointers to the components detailed below. Read the complete article here.
