First Mobile Cloud Service project in Spain is now in production! By Rubén Rodríguez Santiago

clip_image001This is an important week in the mobile scene where Mobile World Congress is taking place in Barcelona, I think there is no better time to announce that the first Oracle Mobile Cloud Service in Spain is now in production. If you don't know what Mobile Cloud Service is, you can check all my previous posts here. Posts about Mobile Cloud Service.

Click here to see the original post in avanttic blog (In Spanish)

clip_image002In avanttic we developed this project combining Oracle Mobile Application Framework with Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, which has allowed us to implement a mobility solution for the sales force of Industrial Farmacéutica Cantabra (IFC) in no time. The application will allow IFC to gain efficiency in their sales process and increase the turnover.
About the technology:

"Oracle Mobile Application Framework is a hybrid mobile framework that enables developers to rapidly develop multi-platform single-source applications Oracle MAF provides a visual and declarative development experience and maximizes code reuse resulting in faster development of mobile applications."

"Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is Oracle's Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) and enables companies to create and deploy scalable, robust, and secure mobile applications quickly and easily, and empowers developers to leverage enterprise IT systems—without having to get IT involved" Read the complete article here.

What’s New in Mobile Cloud Service ?

clip_image002What’s New?

As soon as an Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) update becomes available to Oracle data centers, your instance of MCS is upgraded accordingly. You don’t need to request an upgrade to be able to use the new features—they come to you automatically. If you’re not sure which service update you have, click your user name in the upper right corner of the MCS user interface, then click About.

16.1.1 Service Update

· Want to build a mobile app that includes data from a service defined in Integration Cloud Service (ICS)? Or create your own service in ICS to do something like synchronize data between two applications, before using that data in your mobile app? With the latest release of Mobile Cloud Service, you can create an ICS connector API to make it easier to call ICS services from your custom code. See ICS Connector API Flow for details.

15.4.3 Service Update

· Mobile Cloud Service now has a shiny new interface! Not only is it much cleaner and crisper than before, but it’s been designed to focus your attention on a single environment at a time: Development, Staging, or Production.

Use the new “hamburger menu” in the top left to access all the artifacts and tools associated with whatever environment you’re looking at—mobile backends, APIs, analytics, and more.

As part of the UI overhaul, the role/permissions model has been tightened up and streamlined as well, which means you can be sure that your team members will see only the parts of the UI—or the environments—you’ve enabled them to see.

· As a mobile app developer, you should find these enhancements pretty useful:

· Client SDKs for both Windows (.NET) and JavaScript are now available, making it much easier to develop mobile apps that run on those platforms. Support for push notifications is also available to mobile apps built on Windows.

· Develop mobile apps that can work offline—even if a mobile user edits or adds content—then automatically sync up with MCS in the Cloud as soon as they come back online. No need to worry about real or potential resource clashes, either: they’re handled through policies that you control. See Data Offline to find out how it works. Read the complete article here.

What’s New for Oracle Mobile Cloud Service


image

What’s New in Mobile Cloud Service?

As soon as new and changed features become available, cloud tools for managing Oracle Mobile Cloud instances are upgraded in the data centers where Oracle Cloud services are hosted. You don’t need to request an upgrade to be able to use the new features—they come to you automatically.

16.2.3 (V2.0) Service Update

Empower your business users to build their own mobile apps with Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX). As long as the underlying APIs are created according to a set of pre-defined patterns, folks in HR, Finance, and other non-technical roles can build mobile apps without ever having to write a line of code. Start here.

Need some mobile apps to manage timecard entries and other HR tasks? No need to build them yourself. MCS provides some pre-built, self-service apps that bring key E-Business Suite data to all your mobile devices. If you want them, just download them from the MCS user interface.

Here’s what V2.0 brings mobile app developers:

· Want to make your apps location-aware? Now you can define points of interest and query those points using the Location Platform API. With the Location API, you’ll know where your users are so you can send them vital information right when they need it, to keep your customers firmly engaged. The Location chapter tells you how to use Location in your mobile apps.

· Let your mobile users log on to your apps using their Microsoft Azure Active Directory credentials. You’ll find what you need to know here.

If you’re a service developer, check out these new features:

· Version 1.1 brought you the ability to export and import artifacts across MCS instances through a set of APIs. 16.2.3 makes working with these artifacts (called “packages”) a whole lot easier, thanks to a brand new user interface. See the chapter on Packages for more information.

· To facilitate your PaaS and SaaS integration projects, we’ve added OAuth and JWT token policies for REST connectors, to help make identify propagation easier. Security Policies for REST Connectors contains the reference information you’ll need. Read the complete article here.

Mobile Cloud Service 2.0 is Here! by Suhas Uliyar

image

Blogging about the 2nd major release of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is personally very exciting! Not too long ago a few of us with many years of mobile experience amongst us, sat in a room and drew up the plans for building – from the ground up – a cloud based enterprise mobile platform, Oracle’s Mobile Cloud Service (MCS).

Our goal was to simplify enterprise mobility and help mobile developer build Better Apps Faster. With these goals in mind, we released MCS in July 2015 and in a short 10 months, we are thrilled to see its success and momentum in the marketplace. Our design goals to be open, agnostic and built on open standards, are being adopted by customers of all sizes, across all industries from around the world. With Oracle MCS, organizations deliver modern experiences to their employees and drive modern engagement with their customers. One of our fundamental principles was to be open and agnostic to mobile client development tools so that developers could develop in their tool of choice and make it simple to consume enterprise services from a Mobile API catalog without requiring them to understand the complexities of enterprise data and security policies. We have customers using native tools from Apple, Google, Xamarin, Sencha, Ionic along with Oracle client development tools, Mobile Application Framework (MAF) & JET, to build engaging experiences integrated with a variety of backend systems.

We have continued to innovate with quick and agile releases of MCS and today I am very excited to share with you the big strides we have BETTER apps with MCS Location Based Services and help enterprises build apps FASTER with Oracle’s Rapid Mobile Application Development (RMAD) capabilities, called Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX). These capabilities are targeted at what Gartner refers to as “citizen developers.”

Before I tell you more about MAX, let’s first take a look at what we’ve delivered with Location Based Services..

About Oracle MCS and Location Based Services

Many enterprises like retailers, event organizers, transit systems, financial services, hospitality and educational institutions are engaging with consumers and have invested significantly in enabling seamless user experiences across mobile applications and the online world. They are able to get insights related to app downloads and in some cases user behavior across multiple channels. However, many of them have neglected a key value that mobile provides that the online world does not - the consumer’s physical location! When you consider that 93% of US retail sales still occur in store, enterprises are missing a key connection between the physical and online world.

The challenge with GPS is that indoor spaces often block cell signals and make it difficult to get an accurate location. This is where Beacons become a viable solution. Beacons, a low-cost piece of hardware — small enough to attach to a wall or countertop, use battery-friendly, low-energy Bluetooth connections to transmit or prompt directly to mobile devices. Companies like Estimote are poised to transform and reinvent a contextually rich mobile experience.

“It’s a no-brainer. Beacons increase the granularity of information that Oracle MCS can use to help businesses provide a contextually rich experience to their customers”  Steve Cheney Co-Founder of Estimote.

In-store retail and offline payments are in the first wave of beacon applications. Retail outlets are adopting beacons to provide customers with product information, flash sales or deals, and speed up the checkout process with a completely contactless payments system. Consumers seem receptive to beacons as a way to enhance their in-store shopping experience. Half of American adults already utilize their mobile devices in stores. Consumers could also use them to inexpensively automate their homes. For example, beacons could turn on lights in a room as soon as someone with a smartphone has entered them, or open doors or window shades.

Mobile represents the bridge between the digital and physical world and is becoming the most valuable tool yet for marketers, allowing them to be contextual, relevant and useful. To help build BETTER apps that take advantage of location services, we made it easy by providing a 360 degree view of contextual location information for the app developer to enable better decision support and engagement on the mobile app. MCS 2.0 provides a declarative framework with an easy to use  Admin UI, for the definition of Places, Devices such as Beacons, and Assets as first class entities along with the ability to query interesting information about these entities and the association between them from the mobile app via Platform API’s.

Mobile Cloud Service New version has been released Rubén Rodríguez Santiago

clip_image001

New Oracle Mobile Cloud Service version has been released where we can find, a redisign of the application and some improvements that we were missing the the previous version (1.0). This new version 1.1 matches 16.1.1

if you want to know more about Oracle Mobile Cloud Service you can check my previous post: Oracle Mobile Cloud Service overview

The first changes that we can see is the design of the application. In the new version the menu is on the left hand side and you can collapse it. You can also change between environments with the combo box in the header of the application.
Another change we find is in Mobile Backend authentication. In the previous version we were able to use HTTP Basic, but in the new version we can configure our Mobile Backend to use OAuth authentication. Read the complete article here.

Developer Cloud Service Enhancements

Developer Cloud Service has added new options for using WebLogic Server deployment REST APIs when deploying from DevCS to JCS running WLS 12.1.3 and higher.

At our community workspace here (membership required) we posted:

About Oracle Java Cloud Service

Java Cloud Service is an enterprise-class application deployment platform for Java EE, WebLogic and Fusion Middleware .

Application Container Cloud Service

Performance Improvements

ACCS application creation and redeployment times continue to shrink.  Once the first application is created and the service is initialized, application creation, scaling, and update/redeployment are significantly faster than in the previous release.  These improvements are due to optimization in the usage of the underlying compute infrastructure.

Trial Quota Increases

Restrictions on the number of ACCS application instances has been lifted in trial accounts.  It is now possible for users to take advantage of the full 6 OCPU trial account quota to create more applications and to scale those applications out.

Developer Cloud Service Enhancements

Developer Cloud Service's support for Application Container Cloud has been enhanced with:

1. New utilities for JavaScript and Node packaging and dependency management installed in DevCS Hudson by default (grunt, gulp, and npm)
2. New Deployment configurations targeting ACCS for Java-based applications. These can be used in the DevCS Deploy tab or in Build jobs either on-demand or continuously.
3. New Developer Cloud Service sample project to demonstrate creation, build, and deployment to ACCS containers.

Mobile Cloud Service 3 Days Workshop in Madrid by Rubén Rodríguez Santiago

clip_image001

Last week I had the chance to attend a Mobile Cloud Service 3 days workshop in Madrid. This was the first MCS training in Spain where some partners and I were able to get a good insight about what MCS offers and also a complete hands-on.
If you want to know MCS functionality you can check my previous post: Oracle Mobile Cloud Service overview.

Although I already attended Oracle Summer Camps workshop in Lisbon, we are in the middle of a MCS development and  this workshop was a perfect fit for mastering my MCS skills and also any question we made was perfectly answer by Mireille Duroussaud (Senior Principal Product Manager).
We were also able to see some of the features that will bring the next versions of Mobile Cloud Service like Mobile Application Accelerator (Oracle MAX), and hear of others like for example a JavaScript editor for implementing and debugging APIs right in the browser.

I was really impressed about Oracle MAX becasue building a Mobile Application connected to Mobile Cloud Service was just a matter of 10 minutes. Although the things you can do with Oracle MAX are limitted, it is likely possible that we will be able to donwload the source code of the generated application to extend it wich is a nice feature.

Deployment of a Java EE application to Java Cloud Service (Oracle Public Cloud JCS) by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002In this previous articleGetting started with Java Cloud Service on the Oracle Public Cloud (WebLogic as a Service) – I have taken  you on a introductory tour into JCS. That article describes how to get going – how to provision a JCS instance – associated with an instance in DBaaS and with backup set up with Storage CS.

In the article you are currently reading, I show you how to use this instance for deploying a Java EE application onto – and subsequently invoking that application.

Since the same consoles are available to us with JCS as with on premises WLS, we can perform an application deployment in the same way from the console by uploading a WAR or EAR file as we can do on premises. I tried my hand at a fairly large application – without any Java EE dependencies (no EJB, JMS or JDBC data source requirements): the ADF Faces Rich Client components Demo application – available from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/adf/downloads/index.html . The downloaded file is about 105 MB. The subsequent deployment of this file to JCS fails: the step takes quite long – because 105 MB have to be uploaded again, from my laptop into the Oracle Public Cloud. This console could be extended by Oracle perhaps to also offer to upload directly from a URL. On three attempts, after about three minutes into the upload, the deployment process fails. Either on the JCS end or in the browser to server communication is a problem. I am not sure what it is caused by. For now, I will simply try my hand at a smaller WAR.

Plan B or Take Two at deploying a Java EE application

Instead of looking around for a suitable ready to deploy WAR file, it is probably even more rewarding to quickly develop a Java EE application, build it as a WAR file and deploy it to my new JCS instance. Using JDeveloper, I quickly whip up a JAX-WS application: a simple Java Class that with some JAX-WS applications is turned to a SOAP Web Service (by right clicking the Class and selecting the option Create Web Service):

The functionality of this service should be fairly obvious from the code. The WSDL that the derived service exposes can be previewed in JDeveloper:

Deployment of the service can be done from the project navigator: right click on the ViewController project: Read the complete article here.

Getting started with Java Cloud Service on the Oracle Public Cloud (WebLogic as a Service) by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002The Java Cloud Service (JCS) in the Oracle Public Cloud allows me to deploy Java EE applications such as JAX-RS and JAX-WS REST and SOAP Web Services, Servlet | JSP | JSF Web Applications, EJB and JMS artifacts and ADF applications to the public cloud and make them accessible to developers, testers and end users anywhere in the world. For components to be deployed to the JCS – I have to do nothing special (!) during development or deployment: anything that runs on premises will run in JCS.

In this article, I will describe some of my initial experiences with JCS: what did I have to do to get going the first time – from having nothing more but a (trial) subscription to JCS to deploying and running my first Java EE application on JCS. I thought this would be a very long article with a large number of tips and tricks and with deeply technical steps. I felt some reluctance to even get going – feeling a little daunted by a new world full of new terminology. As it turned out – this is not a long article and it certainly does not contain a lot of tips. My initial reluctance was misplaced. JCS is just WebLogic – hosted on a different machine than my laptop and with a different provisioning interface. The amount of cloud terminology is limited (cloud account, identity domain, service instance is probably the bulk of it – along with simple tooling: dashboard, service console). JCS builds on three other Oracle Public Cloud Services that we need to be aware of: DBaaS (Database), Compute Cloud Service and Storage Cloud Service.

You do not need guidance from me for all the steps you need to go through. I worked with an excellent tutorial on Oracle Help Center – Getting Started with Oracle Java Cloud Service – and I heartily recommend you do the same.

The steps (described in this tutorial) that you need to go through in order to have your first Java EE application running are:

  • (do: 5 minutes | then wait: days up to months) Get a [Trial] Subscription to the Oracle Java Cloud Service – for your Oracle account (the same one you use for OTN and any other interaction with Oracle); an Oracle Java Cloud Service trial environment or purchased subscription comes with Oracle IaaS Public Cloud Services, which provides you access to Storage CS and Compute CS – both of which underpin the JCS instance;
    Note: Database Cloud Service is a prerequisite of Java Cloud Service and is priced separately. When you request provisioning of an instance of JCS, you need to specify the DBaaS instance that it should make use of.  Read my previous article on DBaaS to get going with the Oracle Database as a Service offering and prepare a database instance.
  • (do: 5 minutes) Associate the [trial]subscription with an existing or a new Oracle Public Cloud account (and thereby to an identity domain)
  • (do: 5 minutes) Generate SSH keys (you can reuse the SSH key pair you may already have created to get going with Oracle DBaaS) Read the complete article here.

Fasten your seat belts: Flying the Oracle Development Cloud Service (3 – Take Off – ROTATE) by Timo Hahn

clip_image001The last part of the series 3 – Take Off – V1 we finished when we could build hte application using ANT on the local machine. In this part we are going to try this on the Oracle Developer Cloud. Finally we should see how Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery works in the cloud.

NOTE
I created a fresh set of ANT build scripts named ‘buildlocal.xml’ and ‘buildlocal.properties’ from the project to demonstrate the process. The original ones name ‘build.xml’ and ‘build.properties’ are the final result which I didn’t want to revert. So when you create the ANT scripts yourself you can user the default names ‘build.xml’ and ‘build.properties’. When I talk about build files I now mean the ones named ‘buildlocal.*’.

Demo Build Files

For the same reason we create a new build job in the cloud names ADFTestBuild to show the steps to take. The final build job is named ADFCommunuityFrkExt. Read the complete article here.
