Welcome to the fifth edition of the SOA Magazine by SOA Community. This edition is focuses on Cloud Computing. More precisely, it highlights Platform as a Service (PaaS). Oracle is in process to launch three new PaaS Cloud Services: Process Cloud Service (PCS), Integration Cloud Service (ICS), and Java Cloud Service (JCS). JCS is the underlying foundation and enables you to build, deploy and run Java Applications. With ICS, partners and customers can build integrations between Applications. For example, an integration between Eloqua marketing and Salesforce CRM including an on-premises SAP system. PCS is the platform to build and execute BPMN process in the Cloud. Oracle’s key unique selling point is that the same software is available as on PaaS as on-premises. For example, you can start building your process in PCS export your application and run it on Oracle BPM Suite on-premises in a private Cloud. This enables customers to start and try a service in PaaS and, if required, move it to a data center of their choice.
The second major trend in IT besides Cloud Computing is Mobile. In this Magazine edition, Luca Jellema published an Tutorial to build a Flight application including mobile integration and application. This application is a great example for the complete Red Stack and we want to encourage your to make use of it! It includes all key components from the underlying WebLogic Server, SOA Suite and Service Bus for IT driven integration and BPM Suite for human based processes up to mobile integration with REST. With this application you will learn to utilize the stack and to gain productivity.
