Something that you do not explicitly have to pay for may feel as having no value. The Developer Cloud Service is available free of additional charge with most Oracle PaaS services – and as such may suffer from a perceived lack of value. That would indeed be unfortunate – given the enormous strides made by the team behind this service, one of the oldest on the Oracle public cloud. DevCS has a clear goal: deliver better applications faster and cheaper – through agile development and DevOps. DevCS offers tools and integrations with target platforms that support increasing the agility for delivering features in products in a more frequent pattern – as well as increasing quality and productivity of professional software engineering activities in general.
DevCS incorporates source code control and version management, based on the industry standard Git system. It includes various tools for automated testing and QA – including Selenium, jUnit, Findbugs . Continuous integration and automated deployment are handled through
Hudson (somewhat unfortunately, since Jenkins is considered the community standard) with build automation done with Ant, Maven, Gradle, npm, Grunt, Bower and Gulp. Integrated deployment is offered to cloud services JCS & JCS-SX, DBaaS, SOA CS, ACCS and to the Container Cloud Service Docker Registry in the near future. Read the complete article here.
