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.

Getting to Know the Oracle Developer Cloud Service by W Brian Leonard

clip_image002Oracle Developer Cloud Service is included as a free entitlement with Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle Messaging Cloud Service. The Developer Cloud Service includes all the tools you need to support the team development lifecycle. There are popular open source tools such as Git, Maven and Hudson. There's also task management, code reviews and a wiki.

The easiest way to experience the Oracle Developer Cloud Service is through a trial of the Oracle Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension (click the "Try It" button).

In this article I will introduce the Developer Cloud Service by using Maven to create a new web application, Git to manage the application source and Hudson to build and deploy my application to the Java Cloud Service.

Prerequisites

If you plan to follow along, this tutorial also assumes you already have Maven and Git installed. I will be using the Git Console from my desktop to interface with the Developer Cloud Service. The tutorial also assumes, of course, that you have access to the Developer Cloud Service!

Create a New Project

As a first step, log into the Developer Cloud Service and create a new project. Read the complete article here. & Watch the online training Developer Cloud Service: Git Integration with Oracle JDeveloper

Showcase your custom Java Applications on the Oracle Cloud

clip_image002

As you’re probably already aware Oracle is already a major player in the Public Cloud space, and our business is growing rapidly.

We are already the world’s second biggest SaaS (Software as a Service) provider, with the number one spot firmly in our sights. Our PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) are also growing rapidly.

The key thing about Oracle is that we will offer all the layers of the cloud rather than just focusing on one tier. One way to get a feel for the breadth of offer is to check out cloud.oracle.com. Many of these services are already in or soon will be available for trial, and you can expect some exciting announcements at Oracle Open World.

This means that your customers will have the option of deploying part or all of their systems onto the Oracle Cloud.

The Oracle Cloud is a great platform for deploying custom Java applications that you have developed with or for your customers. The Oracle Java Cloud Service has been extended, and now offers dedicated virtual machines for your WebLogic Server cluster. These have Weblogic 11g or 12c installed and management tooling.

So if you have Java EE or ADF applications that you would like to try or showcase on the Oracle Cloud, please let us know (email Pascal Giraud), and you can demonstrate to your customers that you are a leader with this new platform. To get a free test account please read my previous blog post or visit www.cloud.oracle.com
