Cloud Application Foundation Rocks OpenWorld

Author: Jens Eckels, Princial, Technology Product Marketing, Oracle
Halloween is upon us, so of course we're all wearing orange, carving pumpkins and planning our evenings to either go trick or treating with the kids, stay home and hand out candy or leave town and avoid the neighborhood crowds like a Halloween Grinch. We're also busying ourselves in the aftermath of OpenWorld 2014, where WebLogic, Coherence and other CAF products had a lot for show-and-tell. So, here are some useful links, topics and recaps just for you.

All treats, no tricks.
And maybe a few bad Halloween puns for good measure.
This year, OpenWorld understandably had a cloud emphasis, and the sessions for WebLogic and Coherence were no exception. We explored how you could keep cloud migrations from "goblin" up your IT budget (sorry for that groaner) as you look at moving from on-premise to the cloud. We looked at some of the advantages of using Coherence in tandem with WebLogic as a strategic in-memory data grid, "witch" allows you to process data in real time and offload back-end services. We held developer sessions on how open technologies like Chef and Puppet are helping you provision your infrastructure. And of course, sessions on Java Cloud Service itself that provides an easy way to move your workloads from on-premise into the public cloud (it's not as "terrifying" as you might think).

No one likes hunting all over for information, so we'll help you be a lazy "bones" by provding you some links here. Boo-ckle your seat belts and enjoy the ride through the internet - if you have the "guts."
Editor's note: I am very, very sorry for suggesting we use Halloween jokes. I didn't foresee they would be so awful. Maybe I should have read my horror-scope. Please click the links anyway.

Keynotes and General Sessions
Slideshare Presentations











We had a great time at OOW 2014, and we're looking forward to seeing in 2015 to keep you on top of your game.

Have a boo-tiful, safe and exciting Halloween and beyond!

Developer Recap: Fusion Middleware at OpenWorld 2014

Author: Jens Eckels, Principal, Technology Product Marketing

Oracle OpenWorld is over, but there's still plenty to consume! Much of the developer attention was focused on JavaOne down the road, but that doesn't mean we forgot about you! Here's a brief recap of the goings-on, some sessions you may have missed, and some useful links. Hopefully, you can take a few minutes and get all caught up.
Sessions and Keynotes
Just for you, we had a ton of OOW sessions focused on developing for Fusion Middleware. These didn't just focus on Oracle products, but also how using popular tools and frameworks can help you achieve your goals faster. These sessions focused on everything from mobile development to DevOps, with a specific focus on - you guessed it - cloud. Some useful links:

OpenWorld Keynote and Session Rewinds
JavaOne Keynotes
OpenWorld General Sessions

Yeah, yeah, yeah (you might be heard to say).
Those are all big-picture things that don't affect me on a daily basis (you might think).
You're difficult to please, aren't you? Ok, then. Let us try something else...

If you're still assuming OpenWorld isn't right for you as a developer, check out some of the sessions we completed in 2014, and we can hopefully change your mind for OpenWorld 2015.

   • A Guide to Team Development in the Cloud with Oracle Developer Cloud Service
   • Innovating in the Core: Development with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c
   • Next-Generation Oracle WebLogic Server Provisioning: Puppet, Chef, and More
   • Developing Oracle Fusion Middleware Applications in the Cloud
   • Amplify Service Integration Developer Productivity with Oracle SOA Suite 12c

And of course much more. These five examples are a sampling meant to make you hungry for more.
Kind of like good chips and salsa before your tacos arrive.

Events and Free Beer
Still not convinced we care? Well, we do. And we had several appreciation events to show you. We even handed out a lot of, er, libations, to prove it. If you didn't come to OpenWorld 204, you missed out on:

   • OTN parties that take over Howard Street
   • Live bands, including some local favorites
   • The OTN Lounge, where you could send a Tweet, and it gave you beer. Really.
   • Big-picture sessions about mobile and cloud, and how they're changing, well, everything

We had a great time with you at OOW 2014, and we're looking forward to even more developer events in 2015 to keep you on top of your game.

Mobile Highlights from OOW14


Another successful Oracle OpenWorld! We saw drones cruising over Howard St. as well as the America’s Cup trophy and championship sailboat, plus the concert Wednesday night had some great weather. We dialed in the weather. Tthere’s an app for that,  I think it’s called Oracle ExaWeather Control Center  and it's built on Oracle MAF ;-)   There were a myriad of mobile sessions and hands-on-labs as mobile at Oracle continues into into high gear.  Some highlights included:


Oracle Alta User Interface

Used by Oracle’s cloud applications, cloud services and available for customer-developed applications, new UI design principles deliver elegant user interfaces and experiences for web and mobile applications. Quote from the audience: "We were thinking of starting to rewrite our front end in AngularJS, but this new Alta skin looks awesome!”


Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS)- Simplify enterprise connectivity, any app, any data, any data - secure. The demos were great and the hands on labs were packed. Mobile + Cloud = Rethink Mobile


Preview of Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX) - a cloud-based offering that brings mobile application development capabilities to professionals with no previous software development experience. With Mobile Application Accelerator, program managers, power users, and business professionals can develop mobile applications quickly and visually through their web browser.

Voila! Enhanced Oracle Mobile Application Framework + Oracle Mobile Security Suite. To simplify secure mobile application development, Oracle is deepening the integration between Oracle Mobile Application Framework and Oracle Mobile Security Suite as part of the mobile application lifecycle management process. This integrated approach makes it easier for developers to create a seamless user experience, without compromising security.

Are you developing with Eclipse?  These two were announced prior to OpenWorld, and worth repeating - a new version of Oracle Mobile Application Framework development is now available on the latest update of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse!

And as with the continued adoption and use of Oracle Mobile Application Framework throughout Oracle and its customers, there are 14 New mobile apps for Oracle E-Business Suite!

Need to go hands on with mobile?  Mobile Application Framework Challenge - The Oracle Mobile Application Challenge invites developers to demonstrate how the Oracle Mobile Application Framework can be used to create and/or extend an enterprise application through mobile technology and then deploy that application to a handheld device. 


If you weren’t able to make some of these great sessions, don’t worry.  Oracle Technology Network is sponsoring a Virtual Technology Summit covering mobile topics and more. 

Phew! More mobile? Go to Oracle.com/mobile and then follow us on Twitter @OracleMobile

Inside the OOW Session CON8363: Enabling Multi-Channel Service Delivery

By: Harish Gaur, Director, Oracle Fusion Middleware

According to Forrester, U.S. mobile phone and tablet commerce is expected to reach $293 billion by 2018, up from $114 billion in 2014. No wonder, mobile enablement of ERP, CRM, SCM and multitude of enterprise apps is a high priority for every IT organization. Its imperative organizations don’t create a fragmentation of enterprise architecture (and underlying data & processes) while doing so.

To ensure a consistent architecture across multiple channels (mobile, tablet, desktop, smart sensors), Multi-Channel Service delivery could be a key strategy - a strategy that could eventually lead to better customer experience & reduced operational costs.

Oracle Application customers rely on Oracle Fusion Middleware platform for extending their applications. We are now starting to see Oracle Fusion Middleware being leveraged by e-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, RightNow, SalesForce.com customers to realize the vision of multi-channel service delivery.

Figure 1: Fusion Middleware is the foundation for multi-channel service delivery

As customers embark on their respective mobile strategy, enterprise architecture should be able to address the following requirements

  • How do you offer consistent customer self-service to customers/partners/employees across mobile, tablet, desktop?
  • Can you enable unified architecture to ensure developers are not duplicating business logic for different channels?
  • What is your strategy to ensure channel interactions are secured through a common identity management infrastructure?
  • Do you have centralized set of APIs across different channels to integrate with backend applications and processes?

To learn answers to these questions, please check out OpenWorld session “Bridging Mobile and Desktop: Enabling Multichannel Access to Oracle Applications” on Tuesday Sept 30th 10:45AM. You will see live demonstration of multi-channel self-service scenario across two enterprise applications (JD Edwards Enterprise One and RightNow Service Cloud) and the underlying architecture supporting it. We are also planning to invite a customer to share their journey of multi-channel service delivery.

Developer Friday: Sessions To Watch For at OpenWorld 2014

Author: Jens Eckels, Principal, Technology Product Marketing

OpenWorld is coming fast! But, with much of the developer attention focused on JavaOne down the road, what is an OpenWorld attendee focused on development to do? We're glad you asked, as we've got plenty for you to consume - it's not ALL about Java code, after all. You're worrying about interoperability, integration with popular technologies, cloud deployments and much more.
Sessions
Just for you, we have a ton of OOW sessions focused on developing for Fusion Middleware. These don't just focus on Oracle products, but also how using popluar OSS tools and frameworks can help you acheive your goals faster.

A Guide to Team Development in the Cloud with Oracle Developer Cloud Service [CON5031]
Wednesday, October 1, 12:45pm, Moscone South 270
Whether you are working on the web, mobile devices, the cloud, on-premises, or a combination, a software development platform as a service (PaaS) can transform the way your applications are built and deployed. The new Oracle Developer Cloud Service PaaS is focused on simplifying and accelerating the entire Java application lifecycle (including Oracle Application Development Framework [Oracle ADF]), making it easier and faster than ever to build, run, and manage your applications. In this session, you’ll see how to go from project creation to task management/resolution and true team collaboration with code review, build, and deployment—along with multichannel access to services—through web-based/mobile solutions.

Innovating in the Core: Development with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c [CON7840]
Tuesday, September 30, 5pm, Moscone South 270
Developing applications that can interact efficiently with mobile and HTML clients has become a major focus of many development organizations. This session reviews the latest capabilities of Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.3 for building the REST, WebSocket, and server-sent-event services required by modern client applications. The presentation covers new APIs, such as JAX-RS 2.0, WebSocket 1.0 API for Java, Java API for JSON Programming 1.0, and JPA 2.1; new WebSocket emulation capability; and Project Avatar, for creating JavaScript-based services and clients. It also highlights the out-of-the-box development experience, the advances in support for working with Maven environments, and IDE integration and support. Oracle WebLogic developers and architects should attend.

Mobile @ Oracle OpenWorld and an Interview with Suhas Uliyar

A couple of mobile related items you should check out today.  

First, if you're attending Oracle OpenWorld this month, you must attend this key session for mobile by Suhas Uliyar, Oracle VP of Mobile Strategy and Product Management entitled: Time for You to Rethink Mobile? Oracle Mobile Strategy and Roadmap. It's on Monday, Sept 29, 10:15AM, Moscone South, 103.  Suhas has a long history in mobile and does a great job presenting and explaining Oracle's mobile strategy.  Seriously, don't miss it.

Focusing on Mobile @ Oracle OpenWorld

Plenty of exciting trends in the industry today: Cloud, Big Data, Mobile, etc. The first two are amazing of course, but for me, it's mobile, mobile and... MOBILE.  

Why? Think back to the mozilla browser (Marc Andreessen's mozilla, not today's mozilla.org), Netscape and the nascent beginnings of the World Wide Web. Amazing times. Companies were just starting to set up their home pages, basic HTML, hyperlinks, images, ooooh, aaaah.  Yahoo! was *the* search engine back then. :-\   Anywhoo, I would pose that mobile today, we are in a similar junction. Sure, there's millions of apps on Apple's App Store and Google Play, but within the enterprise, it's just getting started. I'm talking about going beyond the simple, tactical apps such as calendaring, contacts or directory service lookup. And while mobile first a common mantra, I'm referring to mobile plus which includes and looks upon the whole enterprise holistically and adds new parameters, such as your GPS location, perhaps even your vital signs. (Apple's health kit?)  Everything is going mobile. Everything connected. But with the enterprise - scalability, security, integration, app management, user management, etc. Amazing times ahead. Ok, got that off my mind.

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 - Going Mobile!  If you're coming to the big dance, I've highlighted some key mobile sessions below. And if you see me around, and there's a bar within reach, high five me for a beer. I mean, if you read this far, and didn't already jump to the list below, I think you deserve one.   Cheers!
