Java Cloud Service: Scheduling - Timer API

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.

This article will cover an example of using the Timer and Worker API and in future articles other options will be covered.[Read More]

New Resources for Building Mobile Applications

The Mobile Applications Framework (MAF for short) is Oracle's new strategic platform for cross-platform mobile enterprise applications.  As a Java developer you can use your familiarity with Eclipse or JDeveloper to become productive in no time.  Download MAF from here.

To help you get started, the MAF team created a free Oracle Academy online training course.  There is also a Youtube Channel packed with videos explaining the technology in small bite-sized chunks.  And then there are at least two blogs that you might want to add to your list of RSS reader:

 - Hands-on with Oracle's Mobile Technology
 - The Oracle Mobile Platform Blog

Finally, the Sales Cloud team is demonstrating how a bespoke mobile solution can be built using Fusion web services, Java Cloud Services, third-party public services and ADF Mobile (the precursor to MAF).  Get the new book "Implementing the Business Card Scanner Mobile Application Use Case for Oracle Sales Cloud" (yes, won 2nd prize in the "Longest Book Title" competition), download the source code (link in the book) and work through the detailed steps of how to create a real-life production-quality enterprise application.

Troubleshooting Web Service Integration (.Net: Cyclic Reference)

Previous articles covered various technologies to call Fusion Application Web Services. In this series of articles various common issues and recommended solutions are documented.

Cyclic Reference

When using Web Reference integration the client generation may fail for some Fusion
Application Web Services with errors such as:
"Unable to import WebService/Schema. Unable to import binding
'LocationServiceSoapHttp' from namespace
''. Unable to
import operation 'updateLocationTranslation'. The datatype
'' is missing.";
These are commonly due to cyclic references in the service definition. The specification is vague on whether this is allowed or not and as such it's caused by different interpretation of the standard by the different technologies. The issue does not exist with Service Reference integration so the recommendation is to always use Service References for integration.

Integrating With Fusion Application Using Services (SoapUi - SSL)

Fusion Applications provides web services that allow external systems to integrate with Fusion Applications. There are two types of services: ADF services and composite services. ADF services are created for a logical business object and provide functionality to access and manipulate these objects. The composite services are mostly process oriented and provide an orchestration of multiple steps.  

Information about the web services provided by Fusion Applications is hosted in Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER). The information provided by OER can be used to understand the functionality provided by the service and how the service can be called.

This series of articles describes how one can invoke SOAP web services provided by Fusion Applications using various technologies. In previous article we covered how to invoke a Fusion Application web service secured with simple username token using SoapUI. In this article we will cover a call to service secured with SSL policy.
