Almost one month ago, Oracle released Oracle Mobile Application Framework 2.3 that allow us to build Windows 10 applications. After building or migrating our application it is time to distribute it.
Fist you have to prepare you development environment. You can check how to do it here:  Oracle MAF: configuring Windows 10 development environment
In this post I will show how to deploy and install an UWP executable
We are going to use Workbetter application that can be found in the next path (change ‘C:\Oracle\Middleware1221’ with your JDeveloper installation path):
‘C:\Oracle\Middleware1221\Oracle_Home\jdeveloper\jdev\extensions\oracle.maf\Samples’
One we have opened the application we have to deploy it as we usually do todeploy it to iOS or Android, but selecting Windows profile. Read the complete article here.

So let’s say we’re cool with the whole Grunt-for-a-JET-project thing and now want to extend the scripts by adding a new plugin.

We’ll add something simple first. I like time-grunt because I’m always curious about the metrics. Adding it to our project will display the elapsed execution time of all of the tasks whenever we run Grunt.

First we need to download and install the plugin. Then we need to configure our Grunt scripts to fire it up.

Grunt plugins are installed via npm and registered in the package.json file in the root of your JET project. Execute this command to download and install time-grunt:

npm install time-grunt --save-dev

The npm install part pulls down the code needed for time-grunt and puts it in your node_modules folder. The --save-dev part adds an entry to your package.json file.

Now we need to add it to the Gruntfile so that it will run on every invocation of grunt. Because it’s watching over everything Grunt does and measuring the time it takes, time-grunt loads differently than normal task modules and we don’t use the load-grunt-config pattern of adding a scripts/grunt/config file like a task. Instead, we put it directly in the Gruntfile, despite the fact that the generated JET code leans on the load-grunt-config approach for all of its other plugins. Read the complete article here.

These past days we had the oppportunity to give Oracle Jet a try. Coming from the javascript world, I was really happy to discover that Oracle had started using Javascript for their own products and even released Jet as an open-source library.

The challenge

As our Middleware team is running performance tests for SOA/BPM nowadays, one of the areas of focus is the use of Weblogic Data Sources. So a colleague asked me if we could perhaps use Oracle Jet to plot data obtained from MBeans, thus allowing us to monitor these in real-time. We developed a quick API for exposing MBeans as REST services using Jersey (we are using 11g for this) and deployed it to all targets, including the Admin server.

The JMX API

The REST API has 3 methods:

· [GET] /get/{mbean}: returns all attributes from the mbean attribute

· [GET] /find/{filter}: lists all object names found using the filter

· [POST] /query/{filter}?key=Name: returns specific stats from target object names and attributes, grouped by the Name attribute

Getting started

Following the getting started guide, it was really easy to create a project to test. At first, we used the Netbeans approach to quickly start up, but then we moved on to the second approach (the one listed in the quickstart guide) and used yeoman, grunt and bower instead.

The Frontend API client

After yeoman created our project, we developed our client module with all the functions needed to access our backend service: Read the complete article here.

I almost missed that Developer Cloud Service has been updated to 12.2.1. Great news as we now can use JDeveloper 12.2.1 to access the agile capabilities like

§ Interact with Tasks/Issues in JDeveloper

§ Leverage the Team view in JDeveloper (tasks, builds, and code repositories)

§ Connect to DevCS and its projects from inside JDeveloper

§ Create Agile boards and manage sprints in Developer Cloud Service

§ Associate code commits with specific tasks

§ Monitor team activity in the Team Dashboard

§ Handle Git transactions

For more information about how JDeveloper and the DCS are integrated watch this video ‘Agile development with Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle Developer Cloud Service’.

This was possible since last year. So, what’s new?

New is that the JCS is also available in 12.2.1 and that we can use the whole continuous integration scenario. For this we have to configure a 12.2.1 JCS instance which then can be used for deployment. When we select to create a new instance of a JCS we see the new wizard which allows us to select a WebLogic Server 12c in version 12.2.1

On the ‘Edition’ page we don’t find anything new so we skip it and go to the Details page where we specify the needed information for the service, database configuration, backup and the WebLogic user. Read the complete article here.

Oracle has always been quick to point out that they are the only ones who can offer an entire stack from hardware over platform to applications. So far, they have only leveraged that strength in public cloud offerings, where you can buy as many levels of Cloud from Oracle as you want (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS).

But with the recent announcement of the Oracle Cloud Machine, you can now get your own Oracle hardware inside your data center, alleviating a big concern in many highly regulated industries. You get the same experience (same user interface, same deployment options, same management by Oracle, same price) as in the public cloud – the only difference is that the physical hardware is placed in your data center. And of course, you don’t get the elastic scaling you get in the public cloud – after all, get a machine of a finite capacity.

The initial version that you can buy today only offers the Java Cloud Service and Integration Cloud Service -  notice all the little "coming soon" asterisks in the Oracle Public Cloud Machine data sheet .Read the complete article here.
