Resources on Oracle Learning Library
By Richard Bingham on Dec 16, 2013
Oracle Learning Library continues to be the one-stop-shop for free, readily-consumable ways to learn about Oracle products and features. As such we thought it might be helpful to provide a short post offering some highlights for anyone working with Fusion Applications, both on-premise and SaaS.
As mentioned before our own content is listed in OLL, and can be shown by selecting product family 'Fusion Applications' and product 'Fusion Applications Customizations and Extensibility'. In addition there is a broad range of content of general interest to those developing with Fusion Applications, such the Oracle Cloud and with middleware tools such as ADF, Business Intelligence, SOA and BPM.
Also the Oracle Sales Cloud team have put together a substantial catalog, both functional and technical, including a broad coverage of Application Composer. The product landing page can be found under Products > Applications > Fusion Applications > Oracle Sales Cloud which displays the Sales Cloud Library. As shown in the partial screenshot below, from here you can see:
- A "spotlight" section which includes the configurable-and-extensible category
- A "recently added" table listing new items you might have missed. Look for the words 'Application Composer' or 'Customizing' in the titles.
- A "Learn-By-Action" button that has Customize which lists many resources.
- And if you're still lost there is a useful getting started video
As you can see in the table all OLL content is arranged into related series, and for Sales Cloud customization it includes the following subjects:
- Creating custom objects and fields, including adding validation, importing data, security.
- Creating object workflows for updating fields and firing emails.
- Editing standard objects (customer, consumer, contact, account) and updating all related pages.
- Adding field validation and triggers.
Finally, some of the OLL content links out to the Oracle Sales Cloud YouTube channel, with case-studies and more functional demonstrations. A handy example is this video which gives a quick UI tour specifically for new cloud developers.
