Java Cloud Service: Scheduling - Timer Service

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 type 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, this article covers Timer Service. In future articles other options will be covered.[Read More]

Groovy Tuesday: Custom Validations When Loading Data

Did you know that if you use the file-based loaders for importing business transaction records it will bypass any custom groovy logic and object/field validation rules you've added through Application Composer.  If you don't want that to happen, then you should use the related web services for creating/updating transaction records. This is because unlike the loaders the web services are built-into the functional flows and enforce the same validation as that on the UI.  Also the web services will fire any groovy triggers you have as well, whereas the loaders will not. Use this knowledge to help decide how to load your data when implementing or integrating with Oracle Sales Cloud.
