Shay Shmeltzer's Oracle Development Tools Tips

Extending Oracle SaaS with Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service - Simplified PaaS for SaaS

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

One of the focus area for us when developing the new Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS) was to create a tool that would make it very simple to enrich Oracle SaaS applications.

This integration is a key part of Oracle's PaaS for SaaS offering - where we have unique capabilities in our Platform as a Service offering for our Software as a Service customers.

With ABCS it is very easy to pick up objects from Oracle SaaS (through the built in service catalog) and then design new web and mobile interfaces that show data from those.

In addition you can then add your own custom fields and related objects with additional data you want to track.

Once your application is complete - you can then either run it as a stand-alone app, or embed it into an Oracle SaaS interface. 

I wrote two blogs and recorded two videos that show you the basics.

Embedding Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service Apps in Oracle Sales Cloud

These videos are part of the new Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service YouTube Channel

And the blogs are published on the Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service OTN Community

We have more tutorials there to help you go even further - so check them out!

    Good day!

    We are trying to extend with fusion SCM R12 version to Oracle application builder. We have the business requirement to capture the additional information in SCM, so that we are extending with ABCS. We created form in ABCS now we are not able to retrieve the data from ABCS to SCM.
    Could you please suggest how to extend with fusion SCM to Application builder.

    Thank you,

    When you create object in ABCS/VBCS they are saved in the VBCS database. If you want to access them from external applications logic you can use the REST interface they expose.
    I'm not sure I'm clear about what exactly you did and what was your aim - better ask on the VBCS forum: https://community.oracle.com/community/oracle-cloud/platform/visual-builder/

    I am working with VBCS version 18.4.5

    When I publish the app, the live link looks like this:

    I dont see #/{{home_page}} reference in the url. Appending ?nonav after the web_app_name isnt working either. What is the way to get a page with nonav with this version?

    Faisal - in visual apps you control the template of the page using the shell and index pages - you can simply remove all the surrounding chrome from a shell page to have an embeddable page with no "extra things".
