Oracle LiveLabs are self-guided hands-on lab exercises that enable you to explore services before enabling them in your environment or serve as learning resources for various capabilities of our OCI services.

We are delighted to announce that a set of new workshops for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Application Performance Monitoring (APM) are now available in Oracle LiveLabs. The workshops provide lab exercises that can enhance your experience with tracing spans from microservices applications built on the Helidon framework, or from traditional J2EE applications deployed on WebLogic-on-Oracle Container Engine of Kubernetes (OKE). You can access these workshops with your paid Oracle Cloud account, or with the Oracle Free Tier with a 30-day free trial.

APM Available Workshops:

Monitor Traces for WebLogic on Kubernetes utilizing Oracle Application Performance Monitoring 

This 90 minutes workshop demonstrates how to configure a WebLogic-on-OKE for monitoring with the Oracle APM service. The configuration enables automatic OpenTracing instrumentation and metrics collection that are used to provide full, end-to-end monitoring and diagnostics for the application. You will learn how to create an APM domain, how to add the APM Java Agent on a file system mounted in the Oracle Cloud, and use APM Trace Explorer to search and view traces and spans.

PREREQUISITE: Completion of the Migrating WebLogic Server to Kubernetes on OCI workshop, labs 1-4.

Use OpenTracing for Microservices with Helidon Utilizing Oracle Application Performance Monitoring

This is a 60-minute workshop that shows you how to enable OpenTracing for a Java microservice-based Helidon SE application using Oracle APM. You will learn how to build Helidon microservices with a Maven project, configure the APM tracers, and trace the workflow within a single service and across multiple services.

Trace a Native Cloud App Utilizing Oracle Application Performance Monitoring

This 70-minute workshop walks you through how to trace a Java microservice-based application deployed on OKE.  You will learn how to configure APM Tracers on the front end (ReactJS), and the back end server (Helidon) of the application. It also includes an advanced topic adding custom spans to capture traces for SQL executions, from the Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) Database.

PREREQUISITE: Completion of the React+Java+ADB = Native Cloud App Workshop, labs 1-3.
