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.

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.

Weblogic LDAPAuthenticator configuration; the GUID Attribute by Maarten Smeets

clip_image001LDAP servers can be configured to use as authenticator in Weblogic Server. In order to efficiently use an LDAP server, it must be possible to uniquely identify LDAP objects. GUID (global universal identifier) attributes can be used as unique identifier for an LDAP object. There are several specific and some more generic LDAP authentication providers available for Weblogic Server. The specific authentication providers have default GUID (global universal identifier) attributes (see here at ‘Use of GUID and LDAP DN Data in WebLogic Principals’). When using the generic Weblogic Server LDAPAuthenticator, there is no default GUID attribute. In order for LDAP caching to work and to allow browsing of group memberships for users, the GUID attribute needs to be defined. The entryUUID is a good candidate for this since every LDAP server should support it. See RFC 4530. Also see here.

In my example, I’ve used the user ‘maarten’ to authenticate myself with when logging into Weblogic Server. The user ‘maarten’ is member of the groups Administrators and DummyGroup. The debug information was acquired by setting the DebugSecurityAtn flag as described here. Weblogic Server 12.1.3.0.0 was used and ApacheDS 2.0.0 as LDAP server. For the configuration of ApacheDS/Weblogic Server, I’ve used the following: http://technology.amis.nl/2014/08/03/ldap-weblogic-using-apacheds-authentication-provider/.

GUID Attribute set to entryUUID

In the below example, the GUID attribute is set to ‘entryUUID’. As you can see, the GUID is correctly determined and there where no errors during authentication. Read the complete article here.

Create RESTful Services and deploy to Oracle Java Cloud Service with Netbeans by Andreas Koop

clip_image002In preparation to one of my DOAG 2014 talks „Java WebApps and Services in Oracle Cloud" I created a new trial account for Oracle Java Cloud Service (http://cloud.oracle.com) two weeks ago. Now was the time to create a RESTful Service and deploy it to the cloud and make it accessible to public. 

Last time I tried the Oracle Cloud I used exclusively JDeveloper, this time I made my experience with Netbeans. From my point of view Netbeans has pretty good support for generating RESTService from Database tables. In a couple of minutes it is possible to create CRUD Operations and make it accesible by a REST endpoint. No matter what content type you prefer, by using JAXB XML and JSON content types are both automatically available.

Prerequites

Step 1: Create an Oracle Java Cloud Service trial account (fee less for 30 days)

Step 2: Download and install Netbeans Version 8.01 (http://www.netbeans.org)

Step 3: Make sure to install the Oracle Cloud plugin (1.5)  in Netbeans

Step 4: Download and Install (just unpack) Oracle Java Cloud  Service - Saas Extension SDK (release 14.1.12.0 Find it here.

Step 5: Next add your Oracle Cloud account as Cloud Provider to Netbeans (Goto „Services" Tab and provide your cloud account details)

Step 6: Add a WebLogic Service Instance under ‚Services Tab', so you are able to test the RESTService locally prior to deploying to Oracle Cloud. (I am not going into detail in this post for that task)

Step 7: Make sure to deploy your DB Schema objects plus data into Oracle Database Cloud Service (when subscribing to Java Cloud Service you will get the DB Service as well). See in my previous posts for more details.

HowTo develop RESTService with Netbeans

Everything is setup for cloud deployment. Now let's create a simple REST-Service on top of the HR  DB Tables EMPLOYEES and DEPARTMENTS.

Step 1: Start Netbeans, Create new Project Wizard from Type „Maven / Web Application"

Step 2: Enter your desired groupId, ArtefactId etc. Read the complete article here and get the presentation here.
