Deploying ADF application in Oracle Cloud by Waslley Souza

clip_image001Have you ever thought about run your ADF application on cloud? In this blog post I will show how to deploy local database tables and ADF application to Oracle Cloud using JDeveloper 11g. I would like to thank to my friend Jürgen Kress that gave me an Oracle Cloud’s licence. If you want you can get a free trial here: Oracle Cloud PaaS & SaaS Trials.

Each Oracle Java Cloud Service instance must be associated with an Oracle Database Cloud Service instance that hosts the schemas required by JRF. This way, when you request an Oracle Java Cloud Service, you will receive an Oracle Database Cloud Service Instance too.

Before you start to create your ADF application, you need to download and install JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.1 for Java and ADF deployment on Oracle Cloud.

Download the sample application: ADFCloudApp.zip.

I created a simple ADF application called ADFCloudApp that manages data of employees.

ADFCloudApp uses “EMPLOYEES” and “JOBS” tables, so we need to deploy these tables to cloud.
In the main menu, choose View > Database > Database Navigator.
In the Database Navigator window, right-click the Cloud Connections node and create a new Cloud Connection. Read the complete article here.

Java Cloud Highlights by Ancy Dow

clip_image002[I was wondering if I was the only one getting excited about these videos. So I asked my friend Ancy. She took a peak and not only did she like the videos, she wrote up this blog herself!]

In this session, Anand Kothari, Product Manager for Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle JaaS, and Harshad Oak, Oracle ACE Director, demonstrate how you can transform your development experience with Oracle’s Java Cloud. The ease and flexibility of developing in Java Cloud is unmatched, as customers can quickly build and deploy applications—be they existing Java applications, simple extensions to Oracle SaaS services, or new applications on-premise or in the cloud, using tools and techniques developers already use and love.

Oracle’s differentiating factor is that it is one of the only companies that has services across the stack—with the largest breadth of SaaS products—so it is a winning choice for customers who want a single vendor to be able to give them everything they want. Because of this, Oracle can go beyond just spinning up virtual machines, but rather, offer a first-class experience on Database, Java, or any service in the stack, abstracting these services so they are extremely simple to use in the Oracle cloud. Hybrid solutions are also possible, and workloads running in your private cloud can seamlessly be brought onto public and back because the same services are offered in both. And because it is cloud, this enterprise-grade technology comes with all the cloud economics, infinite scale, and capacity. Read the complete article here.

New Enterprise Manager Release Delivers Adaptive Private PaaS by Yoav Eilat

We are pleased to announce an update to Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 4. The update is now available on OTN.

clip_image001So what exactly is adaptive private PaaS?

Recent releases of Enterprise Manager have expanded capabilities around Platform as a Service (PaaS) delivery in your private cloud. In particular, the EM Cloud Management Packs have focused on two critical areas for Oracle customers: Database as a Service (DBaaS) and Middleware as a Service (MWaaS).

In this release, these PaaS capabilities have become more adaptive to complex, rapidly growing environments. Let's look at 3 areas where database and middleware users and managers will benefit.

Controlling Expanding Database as a Service Environments

Rapid adoption of database as a service can lead to even faster growth in the number of database instances and the number of database versions and configurations. This can severely impact your management costs and could even cripple your database as a service initiative. The new release enhances our solution to this problem:

· Configuration standardization with integrated advisory, to detect differences across databases and eliminate configuration drift

· Database fleet patching using minimum downtime techniques, to bring database configurations back into compliance

· Rules for custom placement, to intelligently find a suitable target for database placement, based on current load, current population and placement constraints

A database as a service approach can improve service to database users while simultaneously reducing database management costs.

Developing More Rapidly, with Increased Security

Agile application development and testing requires convenient access to up-to-date test data. The Enterprise Manager Snap Clone feature gives DBAs, developers and QA engineers direct access to self-service cloning, so they can create fully functional copies of production databases within minutes. This release introduces several exciting new Snap Clone capabilities:

· Continuous data refresh from the source database. As your production system gets updated, you can continuously refresh your test data.

· Integrated data masking, subsetting and patching. Use the Enterprise Manager Data Masking and Subsetting Pack together with Snap Clone to keep your test databases lean and free of sensitive information, and keep them up to date with the latest PSUs and patch sets.

· Restore a database to a previous point in time with a convenient calendar view.

· Snap Clone support on EMC VMAX and VNX Block Storage. This adds to Snap Clone's native support for Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance and NetApp Storage Appliance in addition to generic support of other storage systems.

Software developers can also take advantage of new test-to-production (and reverse) cloning of SOA, OSB and WebCenter environments with application artifacts automation.

Java App Performance at the Speed of Cloud: Hot Tips for Successful Cloud Development
Continuous integration, automated builds, cloud deployment, self-service, developer services, mobility, Java... the list goes on and on with endless buzzwords and trends. But what do you truly need to deliver on the cloud requirements that are facing you? How will you provide the rich experiences your customers and lines of business demand? Join us to discover how a strategic cloud application foundation can enable developers (and their operations friends) to be more productive, innovative and integrated in the new cloud-based paradigm.
Jazz Up Your SaaS with Oracle PaaS Solutions
Software as a service (SaaS) is becoming the preferred deployment model for enterprise applications today.  Oracle has the industry’s broadest portfolio of SaaS applications that can be easily configured to meet your business requirements and, where necessary, can be customized and integrated with other on-premises and cloud applications.  Attend this session to learn how Oracle platform as a service (PaaS) with Java Cloud Service and Integration Cloud Service can extend and integrate your application investments, both on-premises and in the cloud.
Mobile Development in the Cloud
From Mobile First to Mobile Plus, it’s time for a mobile strategy that brings together two of the fastest growing trends that are reshaping the enterprise, mobile + cloud. This session will provide an overview on building mobile apps faster using cloud-based approach and an open, flexible architecture that readily integrates and mobilizes existing on-premise and cloud based applications.

Middleware IT Operations Track: Integrate, Secure, Manage your Cloud
Simplify SaaS and On-premises Integration
Unless businesses develop a plan to simplify their overall integration strategy, the explosive growth of SaaS combined with existing on-premises integration is likely to slow the pace of innovation and time-to-market, as well as increase overall complexity and costs.  Attend this session to see how Oracle customers have broken through the integration quagmire and simplified integration. Hear best practices on how to better integrate Oracle cloud applications using Oracle Integration Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Suite and learn how a unified solution eliminates the divide between new cloud applications and your existing infrastructure.
Extend Your Identity Management Services to the Cloud
As organizations consume an increasing number of cloud services and apps, identity management becomes fragmented. Organizations have inconsistent access policies and lose visibility into who has access to what. To avoid these risks and costs, they are increasingly adopting a strategy of extending enterprise identity services to the cloud. This session explores how customers are using Oracle Identity Management to deliver a unified identity management solution that gives users access to all their data from any device while providing an intelligent centralized view into user access rights.

Thomas Kurian on the Role of Today’s CIO in Cloud & Business Transformation

clip_image002Expectations of business-driven IT are higher than ever and changing rapidly.  Words like agility, mobility, digital, data, cloud and customer centricity are common and constant from Line of Business (LOBs) executives like CMOs. Today’s business must move at the pace of – scratch that – ahead of the pace of today’s consumer. Businesses must anticipate customers’ needs to be truly customer-centric organizations.  Innovation through the cloud is a big force driving customer experience and customer centricity.

Here’s another word of importance: collaboration.  And collaboration is essential to make a successful business-led technology transformation. Today’s CIO will play a pivotal role in crafting that collaboration between IT and business leaders. Unfortunately, the process hasn’t taken root just yet.

According to a recent ZDNet article, research shows that confidence and collaboration between LOBs and IT is not strong. The article cites a new CIO Magazine survey showing that 54% of business leaders view IT “as an obstacle to their mission.” Forrester research shows that less than half of marketing managers collaborate with IT when developing a technology strategy. And our Oracle study revealed that less than 1/3 of marketing and IT executives surveyed reported collaborating “frequently,” while at the same time noting greater success when they do collaborate.

Kurian believes the CIO will play a pivotal role with collaboration, cloud and business transformation. In this video he states “cloud actually empowers CIOs to take the lead with innovation.” He goes on to say that today’s CIO role is not diminished just different, requiring a new business mindset. The CIO is very much essential to this new digital, customer-centric business revolution.

ZDNet reporter Dion Hinchcliffe had some great insights on the future role of CIOs: “The CIO should have – or should quickly ascertain – a better sense of how to translate the current business into today’s emerging digital marketplaces and channels. And yes, that means knowing more about how to apply digital to various parts of the enterprise than line of business executives. Relentless education and experimentation is required here to be successful. The CIO should be the visionary and evangelist that can get business – from the management team to the workforce – fully on board with digital business.”

Cloud is the future of business transformation; CIOs will play a key role. As Kurian says, CIOs are extremely important to their executives and businesses, and the cloud empowers them to take the lead.  The best CIOs in the industry are beginning to grasp that and train their staff to become experts in cloud technologies. For more on cloud innovation, read Oracle CEO Mark Hurd's recent piece on how cloud is revolutionizing business in four key areas.

This is just one entry in a series of blog videos with Kurian. Oracle Social Cloud Group VP Meg Bear spent the day recently with Kurian discussing everything from the changing role of today’s CMO and CIO, to data and innovation, to the importance of user experience. Check back each week as we feature a new video with insights from Kurian on how Oracle is partnering and co-innovating with our customers to help pave a path of success and deliver consistent, rewarding and exceptional experiences for their customers.
