Oracle Developer Cloud Service is included as a free entitlement with Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle Messaging Cloud Service. The Developer Cloud Service includes all the tools you need to support the team development lifecycle. There are popular open source tools such as Git, Maven and Hudson. There's also task management, code reviews and a wiki.
The easiest way to experience the Oracle Developer Cloud Service is through a trial of the Oracle Java Cloud Service - SaaS Extension (click the "Try It" button).
In this article I will introduce the Developer Cloud Service by using Maven to create a new web application, Git to manage the application source and Hudson to build and deploy my application to the Java Cloud Service.
If you plan to follow along, this tutorial also assumes you already have Maven and Git installed. I will be using the Git Console from my desktop to interface with the Developer Cloud Service. The tutorial also assumes, of course, that you have access to the Developer Cloud Service!
As a first step, log into the Developer Cloud Service and create a new project. Read the complete article here. & Watch the online training Developer Cloud Service: Git Integration with Oracle JDeveloper
