Customer Connect: Groovy Scripting - Enhance your Oracle Sales Cloud User Experiences

A quick heads up: if you are working with Sales Cloud Application Composer, you should not miss this webinar offered by Oracle Applications Customer Connect:  

Groovy Scripting - Enhance your Oracle Sales Cloud User Experiences

presented by Len Wolfenstein, Oracle Sales Cloud Senior Director

Date: March 17, 2015 at 9am PT 

Abstract: Groovy is a standards-based scripting language which has been embedded into Oracle Sales Cloud Application Composer to allow the developer to extend standard processing logic, dynamically set record and page properties, implement business rules validation and enforcement, and myriad other uses. In this session, we review the basics of Groovy as a scripting language. Through the use of instructional use cases and implementation scenarios, we delve into the many different ways Groovy can be used within Application Composer and in particular how to work with Oracle Sales Cloud’s standard and custom objects.

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.

From OpenWorld: Oracle Cloud Marketplace

Announced today, the Oracle Cloud Marketplace offers ISV's, partners, and even applications customers the chance to share their own applications, extensions, and utility services to help complement existing on-premises and/or Oracle Cloud applications. Using the AppStore paradigm, shifted to the world of Enterprise Applications, the marketplace allows you to search and browse the applications available for deploying to your Oracle Cloud environment, exposing very detailed specifications as well as a nice ability to run full demos.

It will certainly be very interesting to see how the Oracle Cloud Applications platform evolves now, based on both the constantly developing Fusion Applications suite and this well-organized plug-and-play enterprise app content. For a more detailed overview of the Oracle Cloud Marketplace see this YouTube video.

Using Expressions To Add Logic To Page Composer

Without using JDeveloper to adjust the native ADF artifacts such as page fragments, view objects, and taskflows, it may seem that you cannot substantially adjust the way a page works. This is not always the case, since some of the properties of the page components can be set based on expressions evaluated at run-time, hence permitting you to build-in small amounts of context dependent logic.[Read More]
