Just in time for Oracle Open World 2015, a new tutorial is now available that teaches you how to use Oracle MAF to consume and test mobile backend services from Mobile Cloud Service.
Before getting started with this tutorial, you will need to complete the Mobile Cloud Service: Putting It All Together tutorial at least through Associating APIs with the Mobile Backend section. This will setup your first mobile backend based on the FIF_incidents.raml sample API. From there you can consume that FiF_incidents with the MAF application that you develop in Eclipse.
In the first part of the tutorial, you will use the Oracle Cloud view to connect to and browse your API catalog in Mobile Cloud Service. This is an easy way for the mobile app developer to see which mobile endpoints are available for consumption.
Next, you will introspect into the RAML definition, test using the REST Test Client, and create client APIs for the mobile application.
Finally, you will develop an Incident Tracker app using Oracle MAF in Eclipse. Data Controls will simplify the bindings between the UI components and REST client APIs.
