Using the Oracle Developer Cloud Service for Git version management for JDeveloper/ADF apps

The Oracle Developer Cloud Service (DevCS for short) provides a complete cloud-hosted development platform for your team. This makes it very easy to start adopting development best practices for your team, and adopt a more agile development approach.

If you haven't tried it yet, you should!

It's simple to get a free trial instance - just sign up for a trial of the Java cloud service (which, by the way, will take you through anOracle ADF based registration wizard) and an instance of the Developer cloud service will be provisioned for you as part of the trial. No need for any additional machines or installations on your side.

I'm going to write a couple of blogs about the various features that DevCS provides such as build and continuous integration, but let's start with the very basic feature we all should be using - source code management.

Every project needs to do version management - even if you are a single developer - and with DevCS there is no server and network setup required. Create a new DevCS project and 10 seconds later you have your git server accessible from any computer that has internet access.

The demo below is using JDeveloper 12.1.3 and the sample summit ADF application that you can get from OTN. 

In the demo I start from scratch and demo how to

  • create a new DevCS project
  • check code into the git repository
  • branch my code to work on fixes
  • submit the changes back
  • how to do code review by team members
  • merge fixes to the master branch

 

Go ahead try it out with your project and your team.

If you are new to git (which has quickly became the new standard for source management) - check out the Oracle A-Team blog entry that explains a good workflow for team work with git that you can adopt.

Deploying the Oracle ADF Summit Application to the Oracle Java Cloud

With the new Oracle Cloud offering you no longer need to install and manage the runtime platform for ADF applications. You can use a hosted instance of Oracle WebLogic and the Oracle Database to host your application.

Deployment to the cloud is quite straightforward, and you can do it directly from inside JDeveloper.

Here is a quick video showing you how to first create your database objects and then deploy your application to the cloud.

One small point, in the demo you don't see it but I also used the option to import the data into the tables.

To do that scroll the cloud cart to the right and check the check box for data.
