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.

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.

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.

Introduction to Oracle Developer Cloud Service Issue Tracking REST Interfaces by Shay Shmeltzer

The task tracking system in Oracle Developer Cloud Service (DevCS) helps your team manage your development priorities and process. DevCS offers a simple web interface for working with the system. However, in some cases you might want to build your own interfaces to interact with the issues. For example, you might want to build a system for end-users to report bugs in your app and you don't want to give them direct access to the DevCS web insterface. In the August 17 update of DevCS  we introduced a set of REST services that will let you build a custom interface that will interact with our issues repository. The official documentation for the DevCS REST services is here. I wanted to share some tips to help you get this going in your project. The results are in this short video demo, and the details are below. Read the complete article here.

Chatbots Help Reach Millions Of First-Time Appliance Buyers In India by Alexa Weber Morales

In India, hundreds of millions of people are only starting to get reliable electricity, meaning for the first time they’re potential buyers of appliances such as a fan or lamp. And yet, even though that kind of consumerism is new, these would-be customers still have the characteristic impatience of millennials: “These are 10-second people—if they don’t get an answer in 10 seconds, you lose their attention,” says Anant Bajaj, a managing director for Bajaj Electricals, a lighting, engineering, electric utility, and appliance maker based in Mumbai. That explains why Bajaj Electricals is testing chatbots, which will let customers use SMS to report a problem with an appliance, request a demo, or schedule an appointment with a technician. Read how chatbots work, and how they could shape the way people engage with makers of consumer products.

WebLogic Log Inspector: Automated Error Checking using WebLogic Admin REST APIs by Andrew Dorman

Oracle Fusion Middleware environments often consist of multiple servers distributed across many physical hosts. To provision new environments we have the power of Rubicon Red MyST Studio to automate the creation and deployment of platforms both large and small, but there still remains a level of manual effort to validate that everything is working as expected. One of the most basic checks is to review the server logs for errors. Given the size and complexity of some environments this task can be time consuming, and it is likely for things to be missed, making it a perfect candidate for automated assistance. In this blog we will look at how we can automate checking for errors from all of the WebLogic Server Log files using the WebLogic REST APIs. The blog contains the following sections: · WebLogic 12.2.1. REST APIs · WebLogic Log Inspector · Using the REST APIs to interrogate log files · Resources WebLogic 12.2.1 REST APIs WebLogic 12.2.1 introduced a range of REST APIs for configuring, monitoring, deploying, and administering the WebLogic Server.

Continuous Delivery of ADF applications with WebLogic Shared Libraries by Eugene Fedorenko

  Introduction There is a pretty popular architecture pattern when ADF applications are built on top of shared libraries. So the main application is being deployed as an EAR and all subsystems are implemented within shared libraries that can be independently built and deployed to WebLogic as JARs in "hot" mode without downtime. The advantages of this approach seem to be obvious: · It decomposes the application implementing the concepts of modularization and reuse · CI/CD process might be much faster as only one library is going to be rebuilt/redeployed · There is no downtime while redeploying a shared library It looks so cool that people choose this architecture pattern for their new projects and they are pretty happy with the decision they made while implementing the application. They get even happier when they go live to production as they can easily fix most of the bugs and implement new requirements avoiding full redeployment and without any downtime. Definitely, before getting to production any change (and therefore a corresponding shared library) should be deployed and tested at the previous environments such as QA, UAT, etc. In a while nobody knows exactly what versions of shared libraries are deployed at each environment. It's getting a bit tricky to support the application and implement new changes in this situation as even though it works on this environment there is no guarantee it's going to work on the next one as the combination of shared libraries could be different. If it is a big application and there are many shared libraries, this might become a nightmare and pretty often people just give up getting back to full redeployment of everything and eventually to a monolith EAR. It's not that cool, but at least they can sleep again now.

Quick introduction to Oracle Container Registry–running one of Oracle’s prebaked images by Lucas Jellema

  Oracle has been active with Docker for quite some time now. From the first hesitant steps from some enthusiastic employees with Docker build files that helped people to get going with Oracle software in their experimental containers to a GitHub repo with a broad set of extensive Docker build files to create Docker containers with various Oracle product that are supported (https://github.com/oracle/docker-images). And of course the Oracle Container Cloud – launched in the Spring of 2017 that will run custom Docker images. And now recently the next step: the availability of the Oracle Container Registry – Oracle’s own Docker container registry that offers a range of ready built container images with Oracle software. Using these images – all you need to run Oracle platform component on your local Docker Host or Kubernetes cluster is docker pull from this registry followed by a docker run. In this article I will give a quick example of how to work this the Oracle Container Registry. It can be found at:  https://container-registry.oracle.com . The steps to go through: 1. Register as a user for the Oracle Container Registry (one time only, an Oracle account is required) 2. Explore the registry, locate the desired image(s) and Agree to and accept the Oracle Standard Terms and Restrictions for the image(s) that you want to make use of 3. Do a docker login to connect to the Oracle Container Registry. Read the complete article here.

Asynchronous processing using Worker applications on Oracle Application Container Cloud by Abhishek Gupta

  This blog demonstrates Worker Applications on Oracle Cloud with the help of an example which makes of 1. Redis as a job queue (deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic), and 2. a Java based service which acts as a asynchronous processor (a.k.a Worker) deployed to Oracle Application Container Cloud Worker applications ? Traditionally, any service deployed to Oracle Application Container Cloud was was required to bind to $PORT and was given a public URL. But this is actually not required for all kinds of workloads/app types — so you were forced to do things like expose a REST endpoint for a batch processing app ( I know I have ;-) ) Worker applications were built to tackle these kind of problems (and more) and they differ from traditional ACCS applications.

Prepare and link bind Oracle Database Cloud, Application Container Cloud, Application Container Cache and Event Hub by Lucas Jellema

A fairly common combination of Oracle Public Cloud services that I use together – for example for the implementation of microservices – is DBaaS, Application Container Cloud, Application [Container] Cache and Event Hub. In this article, I show the sequence of steps I went through in the Oracle Public Cloud console a few days back to prepare a demo environment for my presentations at Devoxx Morocco in Casablanca. Alternatively, I could have used the command line psm tool and a few straightforward scripts to create the cloud environments. The set up I set out to create looks like this:Several Node applications will run on Application Container Cloud. Each will have service bindings to the same Application Container Cache (a black box powered by Oracle Coherence), a specific schema in a designated pluggable database in an Oracle Database instance and [a specific topic on]Event Hub (with Apache Kafka inside). The applications on Application Container Cloud need public ip adresses, as does the Topic on Event Hub. For my convenience in this demo, I also want to be able access the database directly from my laptop on a public IP address. Read the complete article here.

JAX-RS support for Fn Project By Matthew Gilliard

NB This is a guest post by one of our awesome interns Rae Jeffries-Harris, describing part of the work she did with our Bristol team over the summer. Thanks Rae. JAX-RS on FaaS? A lot of Java programmers are familiar with building RESTful web applications using frameworks such as Jersey which adhere to the JAX-RSspecification. JAX-RS abstracts much of the low-level detail away from the programmer, so that tasks such as client-server communication become less fiddly. But you still have to have a server running night and day, scale it yourself etc. All things which the new Serverless architectures can take off your hands. Ideally you’d be able to deploy a JAX-RS application as a FaaS application, allowing you to have ‘the best of both worlds’. A simple to build and cost efficient application. It’s important to note that here the term FaaS applicationis used to refer to an application composed of multiple functions, this will have more meaning soon.

An API First Approach to Microservices Development by Boris Scholl

Introduction Over the last couple of years our work on various microservices platforms in the cloud has brought us into close collaboration and engagement with many customers and as a result we have developed a deep understanding of what developers struggle with when adopting microservices architectures in addition to a deep knowledge of distributed systems. A major motivation for joining Oracle, besides working with a great team of very smart people from startups, Amazon and Microsoft, was the opportunity to build from scratch a platform based on open source components that truly addresses the developer. In this initial blog post on our new platform we will describe what was driving the design of our platform, and present an overview of the architecture. What developers are looking for Moving to microservices is not an easy transition for developers that have been building applications using more traditional methods. There are a lot of new concepts and details developers need to become familiar with and consider when they design a distributed application, which is what a microservice application is. Throw containers and orchestrators into the mix and it becomes clear why many developers struggle to adapt to this new world.  Developers now need to think about their applications in terms of a distributed system with a lot of moving parts; as a result, challenges such as resiliency, idempotency and eventual consistency, just to name a few, are important aspects they now need to take into account. In addition, with the latest trends in microservices design and best practices, they also need to learn about containers and orchestrators to make their applications and services work. Modern cluster management and container orchestration solutions such as Kubernetes, Mesos/Marathon or Docker Swarm are improving over time, which simplifies things such as networking, service discovery, etc., but they are still an infrastructure play. The main goal of these tools and technologies is to handle the process of deploying and connecting services, and guarantee that they keep running in case of failures. These aspects are more connected with the infrastructure used to host the services than the actual services themselves. Developers need to have a solid understanding of how orchestrators work, and they need to take that into account when they build services. Programming model and infrastructure are entangled; there is no clear separation, and developers need to understand the underlying infrastructure to make their services work.

Democratizing Serverless: The New Open Source Fn Platform by Travis Reeder and Reed Allman

Serverless computing is one of the hottest trends in computing right now due to it’s simplicity and cost efficiency. But the most well-known serverless platforms are either proprietary or difficult to incorporate into existing platforms. Fortunately the open source Fn Project (fnproject.io) was recently launched and it enables you to run your own serverless infrastructure wherever you want—on your laptop or on the cloud with no vendor lock-in. Built on Docker, Fn includes support for writing functions in popular programming languages with excellent support for Java, local development with JUnit testing, and Fn Flow for orchestrating functions directly in Java. All you need is Docker and you're ready to go! First things first, we'll look at how to use the functions platform with a demo. We’ll walk through writing functions in Go, Node.js, and Java and deploy them. Then we’ll discuss how the platform is implemented including packaging, input and output via STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR, the nitty gritty on running short-lived Docker containers and hot functions to increase performance. And finally we’ll talk about scaling functions. Watch the video here.

Experimenting with Fn project by Jason Lowe

The first AppDev Made Easy (previously known as DX Workshop) for this tour started in Perth. We are continually trialing a few different things as such as we incorporated Fn project https://fnproject.io. The whole demonstration of Functions was to articulate that there are different ways to execute and understanding the problem to solve as well as the values that the organisation holds (including both business and IT departments including developers) which will determine the technology. For the demo we start from the very beginning. Getting Fn Installed The documentation on github is easy to follow – https://github.com/fnproject/fn. The first thing to do is to install docker. I refer back to this previous document to install docker on Oracle Compute Cloud Service – This is How Easy it is to setup Docker on Oracle Compute Cloud Service. Or if you are comfortable with the docker install, then that’s good too. We use the simple curl script from the README to install fn. Here’s the basic steps that we took get fn up and running.

ADF Performance Story – This Time Developer Was Wrong by Andrejus Baranovskis

ADF is fast. If ADF application is slow, most likely this is related to development mistakes. I would like to tell you one story, based on my ADF tuning experience. Problem description: ADF application runs fast in DEV, when DB size is small. Same application runs slow in TEST/PROD, when DB size is large. Question - what is slow. Answer - slow means forms are loading slow. Ok, lets go to the story. Developer decides to fetch data from DB and iterate over rows to process them. This is already bad practice, because it is much more effective to process large sets of rows in DB directly, without fetching to middle tier. But let's assume this is valid use case and we really need to fetch rows. Developer implements fetching using getAllRowsInRange method: VO data is loaded on UI and displayed in the table. Method to iterate through rows is called from button, this logic is not executed on initial load. Iterator is set with Range Size = 10: Read the complete article here.

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.

Will Intelligent Bots Shape the Future of Hospitality? By: Dan Brooks

It was a tremendous amount of fun to see all of the new announcements, innovations, and visions of the future at Oracle OpenWorld 2017.  From Slack, to AI & Chatbots, to Blockchain and more, one can see Oracle is moving towards a comprehensive, open, and exciting future. In fact, as I walked around the OpenWorld demo grounds last week, one exhibit in particular caught my attention.  No, there weren't any free t-shirts, or drones, or beer given away at this demo booth.  Instead, positioned in a corner of the Innovation Studio in Moscone North, sat a large lacquered table supporting several miniature robots, small plastic boxes with etched QR codes, a faerie-sized wooden door, and a tablet with facial recognition software.  Nearby, a large monitor displayed a live Facebook Messenger conversation, streamed from a mobile phone, between a person and a chatbot. What was this peculiar demo and why did it fascinate me so much?  Part of the attraction, admittedly, was that I was intently curious to see what could possibly fit through that miniature door. Was one of the robots going to open it, or drive through it? (The answer to both questions was "no," but both the door and the robot still ended up being used in very cool ways.)  More importantly, I became fascinated with the demo when I learned about the use case it was trying to solve, how well it worked, and which technologies it used.

Beyond Cloud: Oracle Offers a Glimpse into the Future By Chris Murphy

Thomas Kurian, Oracle president of product development, has mapped out the technology path ahead for Oracle, and it includes artificial intelligence, machine learning, chatbots, and new human interfaces. During a keynote presentation at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Kurian said these emerging technologies now fit into the vision Oracle has had since it started building its cloud offerings more than a decade ago: Let anyone, anywhere in the world, access the power of all of Oracle’s technologies using only a browser or a phone. “We’re going to show you not just the new innovations we have in Oracle Cloud, but also a glimpse into the future of Oracle, of how we’re infusing the new technologies of autonomous computing, artificial intelligence, IoT, blockchain, and new forms of human interface into our cloud offering,” Kurian said.

Oracle Management Cloud – Java Flight Recording Dumps by Michel Schildmeijer

The Oracle Management Cloud is a very broad platform for every developer or Ops to get out all the information that is needed. This is why this platform is an ideal one to be used in a DevOps strategy. Why? It has so many features to do analysis from both a developers perspective as an operations perspective. Combine these two and your team will act faster in detecting and solving issues, or even be pro active about possible bottlenecks in applications. One of the zillion features, although a small one I discovered is the ability to record and dump a Java snapshot, or even better known as Java Flight Recorder Dump. Through OMC it is possible with the help of the Diagnostic framework from Oracle WebLogic ( WLDF ) to dump a recording, or dump several recordings. These recordings can be used to analyse the behavior of the entire JVM - in this case the JVM of  a particular WebLogic Server Instance. Read the complete article here.

Dockerized Java EE 8 applications with GlassFish 5.0 by Sebastian Daschner

GlassFish 5.0 represents the reference implementation of Java EE 8. We can dockerize Java EE 8 applications by using a GlassFish base image, such as the official oracle/glassfish. The Dockerfile of a zero-dependency Java EE 8 application looks like follows: FROM oracle/glassfish:5.0 COPY target/application.war $GLASSFISH_HOME/glassfish/domains/domain1/autodeploy/ A Docker container of that image starts the application server and auto-deploys our application. application.war is packaged a thin WAR deployment artifact, what speeds up build, publishing and deployment times. The WAR file comprises only application-specific classes, no implementation-specific JAR files. If needed, any dependencies are added on top of the base image — before the actual application. Imagine, we want to add the Prometheus Java API: Read the complete article here.

Things that you should know about new open source serverless platform: Fn by Denis Makogon

Was made by developers for developers because they care! Intro If you haven’t read my previous article “Demystifying Serverless Compute Manifesto”, i’d better go for it! Okay, Fn Project is a new star in serverless world open sourced by Oracle and made by the same team that started IronFunctions. Let’s be very skeptical here — is it a real serverless? Demystifying Fn At this particular moment i really want to see how it addresses all concepts of serverless (again, this is my own opinion): functions are the unit of deployment and scaling — indeed, Fn defines two key resource types: app and route, where app is a placeholder for routes and each route represents a function. underlying serverless infrastructure is not in control of users — Fn works on top of Docker and, so Fn is actually a FaaS (functions-as-a-service) and the user is capable of talking only to its API, but not underlying infrastructure. function’s runtime is stateless — for each function Fn spins up a container, once the function is done the container is destroyed. function scales with respect to number of requests. It can go hot (N requests to one function) or cold (one request — one function) — well, this is where Fn addresses cold and hot concepts in full, even more, hot mode allows to talk to a functions in two ways: HTTP and JSON.

8 Reasons why we built the Fn Project by Chad Arimura

Having been early pioneers of serverless technologies at Iron.io, our team has watched the market grow and evolve, and we believe the Fn Project will help accelerate the adoption of serverless, evolve the architecture to include full serverless programming models, and create a path towards true multi-cloud computing. In this blog post, I’ll cover the what and why of the Fn Project. Open sourcing the Fn Project on stage at Java One (Click to view video) What is the Fn Project The Fn Project today consists of 4 major components: Fn Server is the Functions-as-a-Service system that allows developers to easily build, deploy, and scale their functions into a multi-cloud environment. It’s fast, reliable, scalable, and container-native, which I’ll discuss more below. The Fn Load Balancer (Fn LB) allows operators to deploy clusters of Fn servers and route traffic to them intelligently. Most importantly, it will route traffic to nodes where hot functions are running to ensure optimal performance, as well as distribute load if traffic to a specific function increases. It also gathers information about the entire cluster which you can use to know when to scale out (add more Fn servers) or in (decrease Fn servers). Read the complete article here.

Rapid first few steps with Fn – open source project for serverless functions by Lucas Jellema

  Project Fn is an open source project that provides a container native, poly-language, cloud agnostic (aka run on any cloud) serverless platform for running functions. Fn was launched during Oracle OpenWorld 2017. Fn is available on GitHub (https://github.com/fnproject/fn ) and provides all resources required to get started. In this article, I will just show you (and myself) how I went through the quick start steps and what it looked like on my laptop (Windows 10 with Vagrant and VirtualBox). I simply get Fn up and running, create a first function that I then deploy and access through HTTP. I briefly show the APIs available on the Fn server and Fn UI application. Steps: Create VirtualBox VM with Debian and Docker (for me, Ubuntu 14 failed to run Fn; I created issue 437 for that) – this step is described in a different article Install Fn command line Install and run Fn server in the VM, as Docker container Create function hello Initialize new function and run it Deploy the new function (in its own Docker Container running inside the container running Fn server) Invoke the new function over http from the Host laptop Run the Fn UI application Inspect the Fn Server REST APIs Connect into the Debian Virtual Machine – for me with vagrant ssh.

Oracle cloud acquisitions bear fruit, with a new serverless platform and container services by Tom Krazit

Eager to court developers and tech executives who have long seen it as a cloud also-ran, Oracle unveiled a new serverless development platform Monday afternoon alongside a package of container-related services as a cloud startup buying spree starts to pay off. “Fn” (a play on the function key) is the fruit of Oracle’s move to hire the team behind of Iron.io, said Bob Quillin, vice president of the Oracle Container Group. It’s a open-source development platform that can run locally on a developer’s laptop or in the cloud, and it allows developers working with serverless technologies — those writing apps based around lightweight functions that are triggered by events to quickly execute tasks — to deploy those functions in their apps.

An API First Approach to Microservices Development by Boris Scholl & Claudio Caldato

Over the last couple of years our work on various microservices platforms in the cloud has brought us into close collaboration and engagement with many customers and as a result we have developed a deep understanding of what developers struggle with when adopting microservices architectures in addition to a deep knowledge of distributed systems. A major motivation for joining Oracle, besides working with a great team of very smart people from startups, Amazon and Microsoft, was the opportunity to build from scratch a platform based on open source components that truly addresses the developer. In this initial blog post on our new platform we will describe what was driving the design of our platform, and present an overview of the architecture. What developers are looking for Moving to microservices is not an easy transition for developers that have been building applications using more traditional methods. There are a lot of new concepts and details developers need to become familiar with and consider when they design a distributed application, which is what a microservice application is. Throw containers and orchestrators into the mix and it becomes clear why many developers struggle to adapt to this new world.  Developers now need to think about their applications in terms of a distributed system with a lot of moving parts; as a result, challenges such as resiliency, idempotency and eventual consistency, just to name a few, are important aspects they now need to take into account.
