Introducing the Oracle Parcel Service–Example/Reference Application
By jeffreyawest on Mar 08, 2011
Over the last few weeks the product management team has been working on a webcast series that is airing in EMEA. It is a 5-episode series where we talk about different features of WebLogic and show how to build applications that take advantage of these features. Each session is focused at a different layer of the technology stack, and you can find the schedule below.
The application we are building in this series is named the ‘Oracle Parcel Service’. It is an example application and not a product of Oracle by any stretch of the imagination. Over the next few weeks we will be finalizing the code and will be releasing it for you to check out. For updates, request membership to the Oracle Parcel Service project on SampleCode.oracle.com: https://www.samplecode.oracle.com/sf/projects/oracle-parcel-svc/.
Here are some of the key features that we are highlighting:
- JPA 2.0 (new in WebLogic 10.3.4) with EclipseLink
- Coherence TopLink Grid Level 2 cache for JPA
- JAX-RS (new in WebLogic 10.3.4) 1.0 for RESTful services
- Lightweight JQuery Web UI for consuming RESTful services
- JSF 2.0 (new in WebLogic 10.3.4) utilizing PrimeFaces
- EJB 3.0
- Spring-WS Web Services
- JAX-WS Web Services
- Spring MDP’s for Event Driven Architectures
- Java MDB’s for Event Driven Architectures
- Partitioned Distributed Topics for Event Driven Architectures
