Java Cloud Service: Scheduling – Cron4j by Jani Rautiainen

clip_image002The Java Cloud Service (JCS) provides a platform to develop and deploy business applications in the cloud. In Fusion Applications Cloud deployments customers do not have the option to deploy custom applications developed with JDeveloper to ensure the integrity and supportability of the hosted application service. Instead the custom applications can be deployed to the JCS and integrated to the Fusion Application Cloud instance.

This series of articles will go through the features of JCS, provide end-to-end examples on how to develop and deploy applications on JCS and how to integrate them with the Fusion Applications instance.
Previous articles covered ADF web application; next we cover options to implement scheduling in JCS. Sometimes there are requirements for the ability to schedule large transactions to run at a future time or automate the running of an application based on a defined schedule. In Fusion Applications these types of requirements are met with Oracle Enterprise Scheduler (ESS), unfortunately ESS is not available in JCS.
In previous article we covered Timer and Worker API, Timer Service and Quartz, this article covers popular scheduler library Cron4j.

Pre-requisites

Access to Cloud instance

In order to deploy the application access to a JCS instance is needed, a free trial JCS instance can be obtained from Oracle Cloud site. To register you will need a credit card even if the credit card will not be charged. To register simply click "Try it" and choose the "Java" option. The confirmation email will contain the connection details. See this video for example of the registration.

Once the request is processed you will be assigned 2 service instances; Java and Database. Applications deployed to the JCS must use Oracle Database Cloud Service as their underlying database. So when JCS instance is created a database instance is associated with it using a JDBC data source.

The cloud services can be monitored and managed through the web UI. For details refer to Getting Started with Oracle Cloud.

JDeveloper

JDeveloper contains Cloud specific features related to e.g. connection and deployment. To use these features download the JDeveloper from JDeveloper download site by clicking the “Download JDeveloper 11.1.1.7.1 for ADF deployment on Oracle Cloud” link, this version of JDeveloper will have the JCS integration features that will be used in this article. For versions that do not include the Cloud integration features the Oracle Java Cloud Service SDK or the JCS Java Console can be used for deployment. Read the complete article here.

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:

Platform for Innovation – Interview with Oracle’s VP of Java Cloud Services by Alexandra Huff

clip_image002In an interview with Mike Lehmann, vice president of product management for Oracle's Java Cloud Services and the Cloud Application Foundation group, you can hear about Oracle's most recent developments in Java for the Cloud, related technologies, and developer-friendly design concepts.
"Architecturally, without a lot of effort, you can bring multi-tier architectures together in interesting ways that previously would have taken weeks or maybe even months, depending on the complexity of your IT environment," says Lehmann. "Now it's basically on demand. So it really changes how you think about your applications. You're getting an enterprise-quality solution out of the box from Oracle."
We think Java developers will be very interested to explore these services, and take note of the rapidly expanding offerings being rolled out over the course of the year. You can read the full article in the most recent edition of Java Magazine. Learn more about our Java Cloud Services and related offerings online.
