We are happy to introduce Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service - the newest member of Oracle’s Cloud Development Platform.
Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (or ABCS for short) provides an easy way to create and host web applications. Aimed at users who aren’t professional software developers, ABCS delivers an intuitive and visual development experience with no-coding required for application development.
Application Development Simplified
With ABCS users visually design web applications through a WYSWYIG page editor dragging and dropping UI components onto pages, and connecting these UI components to data objects. These data objects can be created on the fly as an integral part of the interface development. Users can create applications with multiple pages, multiple related data objects, and rich UIs.
When an application is ready to be tested, users can stage it and provide access to other users to test the application through their browsers. When testing is completed, a simple press of a button will publish a production instance of the application. ABCS can also handle propagating subsequent updates to the application. Applications are accessible through the browser on any device, and can be secured and protected if needed.
Oracle SaaS Application Enrichment
While ABCS can be used to develop stand-alone apps, a unique capability it offers is the ability to extend Oracle SaaS applications such as the Oracle Sales Cloud.
ABCS provides a built-in service catalog that simplifies mashing data from Oracle SaaS with the user’s own custom data objects to create applications that enrich Oracle SaaS functionality. In addition, ABCS applications can leverage the same look and feel used by Oracle SaaS apps. ABCS handles security and single-sign-on across Oracle SaaS and ABCS apps automatically. With its ease of development, Oracle ABCS is a key component in Oracle’s PaaS offering for Oracle SaaS customers.
With its unique combination of visual driven development and powerful underlying technology, Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service makes development and publishing of cloud apps a breeze.
