    RESTify your Backends for Mobile Access - Now Faster with OSB 12.1.3

    Yesterday Oracle released the new Oracle SOA Suite 12.1.3.

    One of the key areas of interest for mobile developers is the all new Oracle Service Bus 12.1.3.

    One thing that will make many of the mobile developers who are using Oracle's tool to develop mobile apps is that the service bus design time experience has been integrated into the all new JDeveloper 12.1.3. So now you have a single tool that allows you to build mobile back-ends as well as mobile front-ends.

    In addition new features further simplify creating REST interfaces for your existing APIs. Check out some of the cool new REST capabilities in this video

    Why Use a Service Bus in Oracle Mobile Suite?

    Recently, Oracle announced the new Mobile Suite product. Mobile Suite includes the ADF Mobile product for designing mobile applications that can run on both Android and iOS devices. Mobile Suite also includes the Oracle Service Bus (OSB), something that decidedly does not run on mobile devices. So naturally customers are asking me, “Why use Oracle Service Bus?”

    The short answer is this: for mobile-enablement of the enterprise. There is more to mobile than just mobile devices. There must be support for emerging and future trends in mobile computing. The last thing anyone wants to do is to have to re-write their enterprise systems to support mobile technologies. Rewriting your existing systems to support mobile, cloud and future technologies is simply not practical.
