What’s Inside Oracle Cloud for You

By Roger Smith

Cloud Services for Developers

“Time is the greatest savings that you get from moving your development environment to the cloud,” said Oracle’s Bruno Borges, in his JavaOne presentation “Cloud Services for Developers: What’s Inside Oracle Cloud for You?” “If you have had to set up an on-premise Oracle database, or any other database, you know that it takes time to do that and you always ask yourself ‘Is these production-ready?’”

In his fast-paced, hands-on demo, Borges showed how developers can quickly get up to speed using Oracle’s pooled, shared, and elastically scalable software development platform, which gives organizations the ability to develop new applications in a quick and cost-effective way. He explained how developers can use their favorite IDE (Oracle JDeveloper, Eclipse, NetBeans) and build systems like Maven and Gradle to develop and deploy applications to the cloud.

Target different JDK Versions

Developers also have the option of choosing either Java SE 7 or 8 to leverage the particular language and JVM features their applications need. Since Oracle Java Cloud is an open platform, developers can also use any available open source or commercial Java library or framework in their applications.

Database Integration

Borges next walked through how to connect to Oracle Database Cloud Service to persist and manage application data as well as how to use Oracle Messaging Service to message between Java Cloud applications, on-premises applications, and Java EE and Node.js applications deployed in the Oracle Cloud. He then demonstrated how you can profile Java applications using Java SE Mission Control and Flight Recorder, in addition to the Oracle Application Performance Monitoring Cloud Service.

He also announced a new Docker Container Service that will soon be available from Oracle to help developers deploy applications into Docker containers.

In response to an audience question about Oracle Cloud scalability, Borges said that you can choose to run your application on your choice of compute size (i.e. the number of cores), and it will scale out dynamically on demand. He said they were also working on giving developers the capability to add scale programmatically using business logic, for example, in an e-commerce application that needs to scale up during the holiday season.

JavaOne Track Highlights: Java, DevOps, and the Cloud

By David Lopez

The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where do you start looking? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each track tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the fourth post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what each track has to offer. Last week, we looked at the Emerging Languages track. Today, let’s look at the Java, DevOps, and the Cloud track and a few featured sessions. 

Java, DevOps, and the Cloud is your stop for service-oriented development technologies. From big data to microservices, this track has you covered. Topics include software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), DevOps, continuous delivery, and container application architectures. Sessions will also cover the role that Java has to play in the development and improvement of the cloud, from increased portability to microservice deployment. 

On this track, Antoine Chambille from Quartet Financial Systems and Amir Javanshir from Oracle will be presenting “Operating a 16-Terabyte JVM. . .and Living to Tell the Tale.” Though the typical limit set on the JVM by most people peaks out at about 100GB, Antoine and Amir will tell you how they got it to work with 16TB of memory using an M6-32 SPARC’s 384 cores to run a large credit risk use case. Also offered on the Java, DevOps, and the Cloud track is “Writing Microservices in Java: Best Practices and Common Mistakes” by Derek Ashmore from the STA Group. Attend this session to learn how to make more resilient and supportable microservices by learning tips and tricks and how to avoid common mistakes. All examples in this session will be shown in Java.

In cloud technologies, Mark Heckler from Oracle and Jose Pereda from Gluon are hosting “Autonomous Vehicles: Build Cloud-Connected Robots with Java.” See off-the-shelf components become a robotic vehicle, and then learn to use Java Embedded and JavaFX to integrate sensors, add autonomous capability, and add monitoring capability to your Android or iOS device by using the cloud. At the end of the session, you’ll hear about the presenters’ current work with these technologies and where they are headed. 

To check out more on this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Java, DevOps, and the Cloud. While you’re there, be sure to check out the hundreds of other great sessions and events at this year’s JavaOne Conference, and register while the Early Bird Discount  is still in effect!
