Thomas Kurian on the Role of Today’s CIO in Cloud & Business Transformation

clip_image002Expectations of business-driven IT are higher than ever and changing rapidly.  Words like agility, mobility, digital, data, cloud and customer centricity are common and constant from Line of Business (LOBs) executives like CMOs. Today’s business must move at the pace of – scratch that – ahead of the pace of today’s consumer. Businesses must anticipate customers’ needs to be truly customer-centric organizations.  Innovation through the cloud is a big force driving customer experience and customer centricity.

Here’s another word of importance: collaboration.  And collaboration is essential to make a successful business-led technology transformation. Today’s CIO will play a pivotal role in crafting that collaboration between IT and business leaders. Unfortunately, the process hasn’t taken root just yet.

According to a recent ZDNet article, research shows that confidence and collaboration between LOBs and IT is not strong. The article cites a new CIO Magazine survey showing that 54% of business leaders view IT “as an obstacle to their mission.” Forrester research shows that less than half of marketing managers collaborate with IT when developing a technology strategy. And our Oracle study revealed that less than 1/3 of marketing and IT executives surveyed reported collaborating “frequently,” while at the same time noting greater success when they do collaborate.

Kurian believes the CIO will play a pivotal role with collaboration, cloud and business transformation. In this video he states “cloud actually empowers CIOs to take the lead with innovation.” He goes on to say that today’s CIO role is not diminished just different, requiring a new business mindset. The CIO is very much essential to this new digital, customer-centric business revolution.

ZDNet reporter Dion Hinchcliffe had some great insights on the future role of CIOs: “The CIO should have – or should quickly ascertain – a better sense of how to translate the current business into today’s emerging digital marketplaces and channels. And yes, that means knowing more about how to apply digital to various parts of the enterprise than line of business executives. Relentless education and experimentation is required here to be successful. The CIO should be the visionary and evangelist that can get business – from the management team to the workforce – fully on board with digital business.”

Cloud is the future of business transformation; CIOs will play a key role. As Kurian says, CIOs are extremely important to their executives and businesses, and the cloud empowers them to take the lead.  The best CIOs in the industry are beginning to grasp that and train their staff to become experts in cloud technologies. For more on cloud innovation, read Oracle CEO Mark Hurd's recent piece on how cloud is revolutionizing business in four key areas.

This is just one entry in a series of blog videos with Kurian. Oracle Social Cloud Group VP Meg Bear spent the day recently with Kurian discussing everything from the changing role of today’s CMO and CIO, to data and innovation, to the importance of user experience. Check back each week as we feature a new video with insights from Kurian on how Oracle is partnering and co-innovating with our customers to help pave a path of success and deliver consistent, rewarding and exceptional experiences for their customers.

Custom Exception Handling in ADF – Model Layer Generic Framework Design by Rohan Walia

clip_image002I have observed that there are lot of users who asks questions on OTN and have problem in designing the custom generic exception handling framework. So in this and next some of the posts I will be describing how we can lay down a generic way to report custom exceptions to the page. These custom exceptions may be mostly for Business Specific errors for which we need to display a custom user friendly message on the page to the user.

In this post we will be seeing how we can customize the error on Model layer and take error messages from a resource bundle defined in the application.

Lets get started. We will first create a generic framework project where we will add exception handling related classes. We give it a name as FrameworkUtil. Framework util project will be dependent on model project from where custom Exceptions will be thrown in the enterprise applications.

First lets set up FrameworkUtil project - ADF Model Project

Created an ADF Model Project with below package structure. Added a resource bundle ErrorBundle.properties which will be having all the Business Errors which can be thrown from the applications model layer.  These errors will be in key value pairs in Error properties file. Read the complete article here.

Developing Applications with OEPE and Oracle Developer Cloud Service free Tutorial

clip_image002In this tutorial, you use Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and Oracle Developer Cloud Service to build and deploy an application. The application is really just a shell that includes one Java web service and a single JSP page. The focus of this tutorial is less on creating an application and more on the interaction of OEPE and Oracle Developer Cloud Service. Once you see how to move code from OEPE into Oracle Developer Cloud Service, you will see how you can use Oracle Developer Cloud Service to manage your application development cycle. Oracle Developer Cloud Service provides a number of tools that help manage the application development lifecycle. Those tools include source control management, issue tracking, Hudson continuous integration, Wiki collaboration, code review tools, and deployment integration. Get the Tutorial here.

Using Java API for WebSockets in JDeveloper 12.1.3 by Eugene Fedorenko

The latest release of JDeveloper 12c (12.1.3.0) along with WebLogic Server 12.1.3 came up with some new Java EE 7 features. One of them is support of JSR 356 Java API for WebSockets. Actually the WebSocket Protocol (RFC 6455) has been supported starting from 12.1.2.0 release, but it was based on WebLogic specific implementation of the WebSocket API. Now this proprietary WebLogic Server clip_image002WebSocket API has been deprecated. However, it is still supported for backward compatibility.
In this post I am going to show an example of using JSR 356 Java API for WebSockets in a simple  ADF application. The use case is about some sailing regatta which takes place in the Tasman Sea. There are three boats participating in the regatta and they are going to cross the Tasman Sea sailing from Australia to New Zealand coast. The goal of the sample application is to monitor the regatta and inform users about how it is going on, showing the positions of the boats on a map.
We're going to declare a WebSocket server endpoint in the application and when a user opens a page a Java script function opens a new WebSocket connection. The application uses a scheduled service which every second updates boats coordinates and sends a message containing new boats positions to all active WebSocket clients. On the client side a Java script function receives the message and adds markers to the Google map according to the GPS coordinates. So, each user, interested in the regatta, is going to see the same updated picture representing the current status of the competition.

WebSocket server endpoint

Let's start with declaring a WebSocket server endpoint. There is a small issue in the current implementation, which probably will be resolved in future releases. The WebSocket endpoints can not be mixed with ADF pages and they should be deployed in a separate WAR file. The easiest way to do that is to create a separate WebSocket project within the application and to declare all necessary endpoints in this project: Read the complete article here.
