A Great Whitepaper on Meta Data Services (MDS)

Whilst several of our blog posts and videos have talked about MDS as the key platform for upgrade safe, layered customizations, however we've not discussed it in detail. Fortunately our colleague Gangadhar from WebCenter Product Management has already done a great job of this in his whitepaper entitled Metadata Services (MDS) in Fusion Middleware.

It includes a straight forward introduction to the tool and its capabilities, an explanation of the architecture and technical components, a summary of use-cases across both middleware and Fusion Applications, as well as details on MDS administration and implementation. It's a valuable background resource, especially for those new to this component.

Developing With Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service for Fusion Applications

Concurrent or scheduled processes are programs that run in the background. Common use cases are:
  • Scheduled action: an action needs to be executed at a predetermined schedule
  • Time-consuming action: Users perform an action that could take a long time to finish
Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service (ESS) provides the ability to manage the complete life cycle of a scheduled process including: development, distribution, scheduling and monitoring. In this whitepaper we will go through an example for ESS development for Fusion Applications including:
  • Creation and configuration of a development environment for ESS development
  • Implementation of a concurrent process
  • Implementation of UI for submitting and monitoring the concurrent process
  • Submitting and monitoring the concurrent process

Announcement: How-To Series Explaining Customizations Step By Step

Yesterday we officially launched our new YouTube channel.  Today we are announcing another initiative that we have been working on for a while: to help you learn common customization tasks, we are going to publish a series of detailed How-To documents with lots of screenshots.  Many of these will also be the script for a YouTube video, giving you the choice to see it in action or go through the steps yourself guided by a PDF document.

The focus of the initial set of How-Tos will be JDeveloper/ADF customizations, but over time we will expand into other areas.  Today's first document is meant to get everyone up to the point where a JDeveloper environment is up and running: "How to Get Started With JDeveloper Customizations for Fusion Applications" white paper shows you how to set up JDeveloper, configure the integrated WLS domain, and make a very, very simple customization work.

As always we are looking for your feedback.  Please let us know whether this is helpful for your work or learning, and what use cases you would like to see us document in these How-Tos.
