January In Review
By Richard Bingham on Feb 06, 2014
Our Content Highlights
Jani continued to expand the broad coverage of how to use various technologies to integrate with Fusion Application services, covering more on .NET and Perl mechanisms, with more to come in February. Based on demand through the forums as well as discussions with Oracle Support, Richard published the first version of his Expression Language whitepaper for use in customizing the run-time UI using Page Composer. We're looking for more tips and tricks to add to this, so please share. In addition our January blog posts also included a comprehensive article on getting started with BI, covering the architecture and how the component pieces offer customization capabilities.
Our YouTube Channel continues to be popular, and in January we added a brand new playlist series on customizing security, again based on real demand from our partners and customers. It has started with some basics for those newer to the Oracle Identity Management components used by Fusion Applications, plus a summary of the new R7 auditing feature which complements the overview here.
From Other Teams
Oracle Development's Functional Architecture group has an Implementation Solutions sub-team who has worked with the HCM group to provided a 40 minute video (and PDF) entitled 'Get Started With An Oracle HCM Cloud Service Implementation'. This simple session introduces the various Oracle teams available for SaaS customers, the related tools and services, and a huge range of proven best practices. The video is available from both Oracle Customer Connect here or from MyOracleSupport under DocID 1589571.1.
If you are considering using ADF Mobile ti provide users on-the-go integration with Fusion Applications, you'll be interested in Patchset5 just released. This includes support for XCode5 as well as a new 'flat' skin (from mobileFusionFX to mobileAlta) that compliments both the latest mobile OS's as well as the new Fusion Applications look-and-feel coming in Release8. See more in this blog post.
Also did you know you can now download the sample chapter of the great new Fusion Applications Development and Extensibility Handbook that we previewed last year? The free sample is a monster 54pages, covering various aspects of integration including; OER, the file loaders, a SOA-based walk-through, and using web services.
Finally, in January we begun expansion of the Developer Relations team, searching for more top talent to join us in evangelizing and supporting the use of Fusion and Cloud platforms for solution development. If you are (or know anyone who is) suitably enthusiastic and experienced then please just let us know or visit iRecruitment and search for 'Developer Relations'.
