Alternative Cloud Models for Partners

clip_image002

Summary: Did you know that Oracle actually offers four different application cloud models? Use your cloud model choice to differentiate from your competition by providing a unique value proposition your competitors are not selling.
Take Action: Watch this short video then schedule a cloud model choice workshop and learn how to optimize model features and deliver a solution with greater value.

Oracle has cloud model options where partners can market end of term perpetual license rights, products not on the Oracle Cloud price list, hybrid op-ex/cap-ex structures, a “bring your own license” solution, or spread the partners upfront services costs over the solution term even while the partner recovers these fees upfront.  Take advantage of these features now to win more business.

The Wisdom of the PaaS Crowd by Monica Metha

clip_image002IT leaders reveal best practices for a successful PaaS implementation.

Research firm IDC forecasts that the global public PaaS market is expected to grow to more than $14 billion in 2017. What do customers want when it comes to the cloud? How does PaaS fulfill those needs? What types of PaaS offerings will do the job?

Reimagine your business with Oracle Cloud software

“When moving to the cloud, people are no longer only looking for software as a service or infrastructure as a service,” says Mike Lehmann, Oracle’s vice president of product management. “They’re thinking of bringing over application platforms and workloads to gain some of the same benefits for the application layer—standardization, faster deployment, automation with more flexible capital expenditure approaches, and seamless integration.”

Oracle recently participated in a survey asking more than 300 IT leaders and practitioners in companies worldwide about their use of PaaS. The respondents’ answers revealed five best practices from companies that found success with PaaS. We took a deeper look at the results with Lehmann, and gained some insights into the wisdom of the crowd. In this case, what are companies that have adopted an effective PaaS solution achieving?

1 Faster, More Efficient Development Cycles

To deploy a new application on premises, IT has to procure, install, and configure hardware, a database, an application server, and a development environment. “It takes some customers weeks or even months to work through the mechanics of hardware procurement and setup, and to install everything they need before they even start writing one line of code for their custom application or deploying a prebuilt application,” says Lehmann.

With a comprehensive PaaS solution, months can be shrunk to an hour. “I don’t want to say it’s magic, but to some degree that’s what’s happening,” says Lehmann. “We’re taking out a layer that is very process-bound and bureaucratic on premises and making it on demand and completely automated. And that’s what the Oracle cloud gives you—an out-of-the-box, standardized environment where you can start building the application or deploying the application or data in an hour.”

A US financial services company that Lehmann worked with had a very large on-premises data center running Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Database. The marketing, finance, and sales departments all had a need for custom apps that would take one to two months to build. However, their data center admins informed them it would be 8 to 12 weeks before they could have the physical environment to build the apps.

“When they saw what we were doing in the Oracle cloud, they said, ‘You mean I can start deploying my promotional campaign in your cloud in an hour? That’s incredible,’” says Lehmann. “Time to value and the ability to quickly deliver campaign-type activities was a huge deciding factor for them to move to PaaS.”

2 Capacity on Demand

A large sports and marketing organization in Europe needed to deliver different social media campaigns to its audiences. Its customer demand was high during the active sports season, and very low at other times of the year. Procuring and maintaining on-premises infrastructure and software with such fluctuations would have been costly and time-consuming. But “one of the beauties in terms of the cloud is this ability to have capacity on demand,” says Lehmann. “We’re giving you the infrastructure, platform, and software out of the box in the cloud, with service-level guarantees, so you no longer have to worry about maintaining it as your business demand changes.”

Key take-aways from the Oracle PaaS Cloud announcements – Integrate, Accelerate, Lead by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002Monday June 22nd was the launch date for Oracle for 24 (and more) Cloud Services. June is traditionally an important month for Oracle when it comes to product launches and important announcements. This year is the same in that respect. The announcements came in a many-hour live webcast including a 45 minute presentation by Oracle CTO Larry Ellison (see videos from Oracle Cloud Platform Launch). I have harvested some of the most relevant slides from this presentation – that capture the essence from his announcements (or at least the things that stood out to me).

See some other relevant resources regarding these announcements:

Responsive UI Support in ADF 12.1.3 by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002Responsive UI is a big deal nowadays, when enterprise applications should run on different platforms and devices. Often customers prefer to render simpler functionality screens for mobile devices and give full data entry access only when accessing through regular Web browser on the computer. ADF provides support for this, you can implement responsive UI designs relatively easy, check informative blog post from Shay Shmeltzer - ADF Faces Responsive Design - 12.1.3 Update.
I would suggest to think about responsive UI design from the start, it very much depends on functionality your application offers. It is good idea to start from the template and define facets for various layouts. But this is not only about layouts, you may prefer to render editable forms on large screens and on mobile devices to show only charts for quick overview. I'm going to demonstrate, how you could switch between different regions in ADF UI, depending on current resolution. Download sample application here - ADFResponsiveUIApp.zip.
This is how it works, I'm using iPad simulator, but same would be true for the regular browser display on smaller screen resolutions. Web page displays region with editable columns in horizontal view and same page displays different region with read-only list in vertical view:

Similar to Shay's sample, there is a template implemented with two facets (each for different layout): Read the complete article here.

Programmatically Select all values in ADF BC based selectMany (af:selectManyCheckbox, af:selectManyChoice, af:selectManyListbox, af:selectManyShuttle) component by Ashish Awasthi

clip_image002

Previously i have posted a lot about component that supports multiple selection in ADF Faces (af:selectManyCheckbox, af:selectManyChoice, af:selectManyListbox, af:selectManyShuttle)
- Multiple Selection in ADF Faces
This post is about selecting all values in a component programmatically on a event like button click, value change event etc.
Note that this post is designed for ADF BC (viewObject) based components , to set values in bean based component check this-
Programmatically populate values in ADF Faces multiSelect component (af:selectManyCheckbox, af:selectManyChoice, af:selectManyListbox, af:selectManyShuttle)
So for this i have just dropped Departments viewObject as multiSelect component on page

Load More Scroll Policy for ADF 12c Table and Range Paging by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image002

There is a new scroll policy for the table component in ADF 12c. This new policy is called - load more. I think it gives good potential, it allows to reduce access load on heavy tables. In ADF 11g we are implementing similar approach with RowCountThreshold = -1 setting, this is preventing full scroll at once (How To Disable SELECT COUNT Execution for ADF Table Rendering). Load more is better, it integrates with VO Range Paging and allows to configure maximum number of rows present on the client.
New scroll policy is configurable directly on the ADF UI table component, as a property:

Load more works based on configured Range Size for the iterator in the bindings. In my example, I have set it to be 15, this means there will batches of new rows added in the groups of 15 elements: Read the complete article here.

https://soacommunity.wordpress.com/2015/07/31/bpm-12c-advanced-error-handling-and-recovery-part-1-by-antonis-antoniou/

clip_image002In a SOA architecture there is often a need to create asynchronous services. As a simple example imagine a workflow approval process. In such a case the approval process can run from minutes to weeks, before the final approval returned back to the client. This is a typical example of an asynchronous service. So when a platform like Oracle SOA Suite is involved the implementation of an asynchronous service  is a quite easy task to do. However when developing such a service manually it is a challenging task. The primary challenge in this scenario is the correlation between the request from the client and the response from the service. In more detail the service have to notice at a minimum the

  • URL of the client
  • a unique identifier for the request (correlation id)

After the service successfully processed the request it has to use this information to build the response and send it back to the client. There exists a web service standard used for correlation: WS-Adressing.

When developing an asynchronous web service manually the developer has to deal with a lot of requirements and standards. Edwin Biemond wrote a nice blog about building a simple asynchronous web service with JAX-WS.

But there exists an alternative using Oracle Fusion Middleware. In the documentation there exists a book about creating Infrastructure web services. In detail this means buildung web services with Oracle ADF. When developing an asynchronous web service according to this guide, Oracle prepares the infrastructure for correlation of the request and response. The developer are able to concentrate on developing the business logic for the service. The correlation of request and response is automatically provided by the infrastructure. So afterwards the preconditions and the general steps are described in more detail.

Preconditions

The preparation of the infrastructure for asynchronous web services consist of creating a request and response JMS queue in WebLogic Server. The default queue names are as follows:

  • Request queue: oracle.j2ee.ws.server.async.DefaultRequestQueue
  • Response queue: oracle.j2ee.ws.server.async.DefaultResponseQueue

It is also possible to change the names of the queues. In addition this queues can be used in a cluster setup as well. Some best practices when using this queues also provided in the documentation. The installation is quite easy. It is only necessary to apply the template oracle.jrf.ws.async_template_12.1.3.jar ($ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/templates/wls) when creating a new WebLogic domain. An existing WebLogic domain can also be extended by applying this template. Read the complete article here.

How to Apply New Label Text in MDS Customisation by Andrejus Baranovskis

clip_image001It may look simple, but really is not obvious how to apply new label text for the ADF BC attribute or UI component through MDS customisation. It is simple, if such label text already exists in the core bundle. If you need to create new label text in the customisation and use it - this becomes a bit tricky. Well, as usual - I'm going to explain how you could solve such task. You should read more about MDS customisation setup in ADF - MDS Seeded Customization Approach with Empty External Project.
Core application - mds_label_cust.zip, contains one label for First Name VO attribute. The requirement is to customise core application and add label for the Last Name VO attribute, without changing anything in the core. For this purpose, we need to create different JDEV application - extension, configured with shared library deployment profile. Here you could simply create new properties file. We are going to use this application to deliver additional components for the core. Keep in mind - core application must be configured to use this library. Add label for Last Name VO attribute, in the properties file located in the extension: Read the complete article here.

Create and set clientAttribute to ADF Faces component programmatically to pass value on client side JavaScript by Ashish Awasthi

clip_image002This post is next in series of "Working with ADF Faces Components programmatically"
So this post is about creating client Attribute, applying it to component and setting it's value programmatically
this requirement comes in picture when user is dealing with dynamic layout means components are created programmatically at run time and it is not possible to apply clientAttribute and other properties declarative
In this i am extending my previous post -
Apply Client/Server listener to programmatically created components, apply JavaScript to ADF Faces components at run time
In previous post i have described about applying client listener and server listener programmatically
here we will see how to pass a variable value to java script function using client attribute
You can read more about af:clientAttribute here
From oracle docs-
The clientAttribute tag specifies the name/value for an attribute which will both be made available both on the server-side (Faces) component as well on on the client-side equivalent. This tag will be ignored for any server-rendered components, as it is only supported for the rich client. ClientAttributes are not synchronized to the server since unknown attributes from the client are not synchronized to the server.
Lets' see how we can do this ,It's simple just check this code Read the complete article here.
