When you need to extend your SaaS application you may use PaaS solutions to do it!
In this blog post I will use Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) and Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX) to create a mobile application for my Oracle Sales Cloud.
Download the packages: paas4saas-with-mcs-and-max.zip.

First of all we need to create a new Mobile Backend.
Go to Menu > Applications > Mobile Backends.
Click “New Mobile Backend” button to create a new Mobile Backend and name it as SalesMB.

To create a new Connector, go to Menu > Applications > Connectors.
Click “New Connector” button to create a new SOAP Connector and name it as SalesConn.
Don’t forget to provide the WSDL of ContactService. Read the complete article here.

In case you have multiple Oracle WebLogic Server Domains on one Server running, you might realise the following problem:
Opening 2 or more WebLogic Consoles in one Browser and switching the Browser tabs between the different WebLogic Consoles, you have to re-login all the times for your different WebLogic Consoles. This is really annoying …
The problem behind is really simple, its the WebLogic Admin Console Cookie, as for all Oracle WebLogic Admin Consoles the default Cookie Name is identical, its named "ADMINCONSOLESESSION".
In order to avoid this permanent re-login to your multiple WebLogic Admin Consoles, you simply have to configure for each Oracle WebLogic Server Domain running on the same server unique Cookie Names.
I prefer the following naming convention: Cookie Name = Domain Name.
Open your WebLogic Admin Console and navigate to the Domain Configuration. Read the complete article here.

imageOracle provides the Dynamic Monitoring Service (DMS) as part of WebLogic Server which is extremely useful if you want to obtain aggregated data of an environment in case of for example a performance test. The data which can be obtained from DMS is extensive. This varies from average duration of service calls to JVM garbage collects to datasource statistics. DMS can be queried with WLST. See for example here. On example script based on this can be found here. You can also directly go to a web-interface such as: http://<host&gt;:<port>/dms/Spy. The DMS Spy servlet is by default only enabled on development environments but can be deployed on production environments (see here).

Obtaining data from DMS in an automated fashion, even with the WLST support, can be a challenge. In this blog I provide a Python 2.7 script which allows you to get information from the DMS and dump it in a CSV file for further processing. The script first logs and uses the obtained session information to download information from a specific table in XML. This XML is converted to CSV. The code does not require an Oracle Home (it is not WLST based). The purpose here is to provide an easy to use starting point which can be expanded to suit specific use-cases. The script works against WebLogic 11g and 12c environments (has been tested against 11.1.1.7 and 12.2.1). Do mind that the example URL given in the script obtains performance data on webservice operations. This works great on composites but not on Service Bus or JAX-WS services. You can download a general script here (which requires minimal changes to use) and a (more specific) script with examples of how to preprocess data in the script here.

How to work with the DMS

The dynamic contents of the DMS tables (like average service response times) are reset upon server restart. Static contents such as deployed composites, remain comparable even after a restart. The contents can also be reset by a script. See for example here. An easy way to work with the DMS is to first reset it, perform some tests and then collect data. After collecting data, you can again reset it and start with a next test. Read the complete article here.

The RESTFul Management Services within Oracle WebLogic 12c is one of the greatest features and my personal favorite.
You can achieve a lot of things with the RESTFul Management Services, like creating DataSources, perform deployments, startup and shutdown Managed Servers and so on.
But you also can access the different WebLogic Server Logfiles 🙂
Let’s say your developers needs access to the Logfiles of your Oracle WebLogic Server, but you don’t want to give them access to your Server which is hosting your Oracle WebLogic Server.
Just create a new User in your WebLogic Admin Console and give this new User the Group "Monitor". With the Monitor Group you can access the WebLogic RESTFul Management Services.
Now your developers can retrieve the Logfiles with a simple cURL command from their desktops: Read the complete article here.
