Shay Shmeltzer's Oracle Development Tools Tips

CI, DevOps and ALM for Oracle SOA Suite with Oracle Developer Cloud Service

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

We have a lot of developers who are using JDeveloper to develop applications with Oracle SOA Suite, and in this blog I wanted to show them how the combination of JDeveloper along with Oracle Developer Cloud Service can help automate their whole development and delivery lifecycle.

One unique aspect of Developer Cloud Service is that it has an instance of JDeveloper available in the build environment. This allows customers who are building Oracle SOA artifacts to leverage the OJDeploy mechanism to package their applications as part of a continuous integration cycle just like they do during development time.

With the improved DevCS integration that we added in JDeveloper 12.2.1, developers can go beyond integration with the Git server offered by DevCS and can now interact with the DevCS task tracking system directly as well as associate code changes to specific tasks they are working on.  

In this 10 minutes video I show:

  • Creating Ant based builds for Oracle SOA artifacts
  • Automating Continuous Integration build and packaging for Oracle SOA from Developer Cloud Service
  • Managing SOA project code with Git and Developer Cloud Service 
  • Tracking tasks from JDeveloper and monitor agile development in Developer Cloud Service

By the way, for those who rather use Maven to automate their builds - this is totally possible and supported in DevCS as well. There is a set of videos that show you how to do that here

(If you haven't seen how quick and easy it is to create a DevCS project, create a git repo, track tasks and create agile team boards - see this video and this one too).

Note that developers get access to Developer Cloud Service with every subscription to the Oracle SOA Cloud Service. 

Here are the two ant files used in the video:

Note that in the build.properties you'll want to change the application and project names to match the ones you are working on.

As you see in the video the build.xml is generated for you automatically and you just need to add the line:

<property environment="env" />

build.properties

oracle.commons=../../../../oracle_common/
oracle.commons=../../../../oracle_common/

    Great Info Shay. we're looking for the similar setup for 12.1.3
    do we need to do any additional steps for 12.1.3?

    Thanks,

    Bhanu

    Bhanu,

    Yes this should work for 12.1.3 also, you'll need different environment variables though - look at the details at the end of this blog pos:

    Thanks Shay for the response.

    After following the steps, I'm getting the error "a deployer could not be located for the sequence Deployment.ASSEMBLY_SEQUENCE" when i just used the environment variables directly.

    oracle.home=${env.ORACLE_HOME_12C3}

    workspace=${env.WORKSPACE}

    middleware.home=${env.MIDDLEWARE_HOME_12C3}

    If i manually initialize them as mentioned in the other blog, i'm ending up with different error: "/opt/Oracle/Middleware12c3/jdeveloper/jdev/bin/ojdeploy": error=2, No such file or directory

    oracle.home=/opt/Oracle/Middleware12c3/jdeveloper

    Thanks,

    Bhanu

    Hi All,

    We are facing the same issue in 12.1.3, however we didn't get this issue in 12.2.1.

    Please share the solution to this issue if solved.
