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 article covered Timer and Worker API; this article will cover an example of scheduling on the database level and in future articles other options will be covered.
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:
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.
