I’ll begin new a series about my findings on working with the Java Development Cloud Service. I’m not sure how many post will finally be part of this series, but I guess you’ll see a couple. Before we begin lets ask the big question:
What is the Oracle Java Development Cloud Service and what do you get from it?
The Oracle Java Development Could Service is one of the offerings around a whole bunch of other cloud services Oracle put out lately. It is one of the ‘Platform as a Service’ (PaaS) offerings which consists of a ready to use Weblogic Server, a ready to use CI Server (Hudson), a source code repository (Git, Ant, Maven), issue tracking, wiki and a ready to use Oracle DB. All this services can be provisioned in two different versions 11g (126.96.36.199.0) and 12c (12.1.3). All components or services are configured and ready to use, even the right ADF Runtime is installed on hte Weblogic Server.
In summary you get a development environment for the enterprise. No need to download tons of software, searching for the versions which play well together. No time consuming installation of the software (I most often need multiple tries until I get what I think works best for myself). So you save a lot of time you normally need to get up and running.
You should download the small E-Book available from the Developers Cloud Service landing page which gives a more comprehensive overview.
All this you get with a nice and fancy Web-UI which looks like Alta but seems to be Skyros. Sometimes it’s a bit confusing where the services can be reached from (which button or icon), but I guess with more experience this won’t be an issue. Read the complete article here
