Virtual Technology Summit - Spotlight on Middleware

Register now for OTN's new Virtual Technology Summit - September 16, 2015. Hear from Oracle ACEs, Java Champions and Oracle Product Experts, as they share their insights and expertise through Hands-on-Labs, highly technical presentations and demos that enable you to master the skills you need to meet today's IT challenges. Chat live with folks and ask your questions as you attend sessions.

Middleware Spotlight: Middleware in the Cloud: PaaS Gets Real - The middleware track in the Fall 2015 edition of the OTN Virtual Technology Summit puts the spotlight on Oracle's Mobile Cloud Service (MCS), Process Cloud Service (PCS), and Java Cloud Service (JCS), three of the more than two dozen new services available on the Oracle Cloud Platform. In each of the three deep-dive sessions a recognized expert from the OTN community walks you through a technical how-to to demonstrate how you can use these PaaS services, and compares each to its on-premise counterparts. PaaS services loom large in the future for developers and architects, so if you're developing enterprise mobile applications, or working with Oracle BPM or WebLogic, you'll want to make sure these #OTNVTS sessions are on your calendar. There are three sessions in the Middleware track:

  • Mobile by Design: Developing with Mobile Cloud Service - In this session you will learn how to use Oracle Mobile Cloud Service to enable your enterprise applications and existing services for simpler, faster, more transparent and more secure mobile access. Learn how to build a robust Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) using Oracle Mobile Suite, and learn how to customize that MBaaS using one of many thousands of available Node.js modules.

  • Getting Started with Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS): Oracle's BPM on the Cloud - One of the great frustrations businesses face today is the time, money and effort it takes to solve their own business problems. Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) addresses this recurring issue by providing a Business Process Management (BPM) solution in the cloud. This session will show how PCS offers a more business-oriented approach to deliver automated process solutions. The demonstration will include tips on getting started, how processes are modeled, the use of business rule decisions, how user interfaces are designed and tested, the integration of services into the process, and how end users interact with the completed application.

  • Getting Started with Java Cloud Service: A WebLogic Administrator's View - Oracle's Java Cloud Service (JCS) is here -- not just the SaaS Extension flavor, but full-blown JCS: clustered WebLogic, Coherence (optionally) and Traffic Director, in the cloud yet under your full control. This session looks at full JCS from the WebLogic administrator's perspective: what it offers, how it's managed, and what sort of applications can be deployed. The session will include some serious digging around - logged into the virtual servers exploring how WebLogic is installed, how the domains are configured, and how to make the customizations needed for real-world applications.
