At Oracle Open World 2016, Larry Ellison demoed the upcoming Oracle Intelligent Bots Cloud Service (IBCS), if you haven’t seen the demo, you can watch the recording on youtube.

Chatbots employ a conversational interface that is both lean and smart, and if designed properly is even charming. Chat helps people find the things they want and need, as well as delivering great services and information directly into an interface they already know and love.Think about how much work it takes to compare and decide on which app to download. Then actually downloading it is never as easy as it sounds, and then the anxiety of where on your home screen to put it on, and then learning yet another new interface. Chatbots are the singularity that smart devices have been waiting for, the streamlined experience that will finally unshackle us from the burden that our apps put on our devices. For most of what we do on our mobile devices, the chatbot and chat interface are ideal.

FlexDeploy’s WebLogic plugin provides various operations to automate the management of domain configurations. Similar to build and deploy of J2EE applications, you can utilize SCM repositories like Subversion, Git, TFS, CVS etc. to maintain configuration files and setup Build and Deploy workflows in FlexDeploy.

Let me show you show it works: 

See a very simple Data Source configuration file below, which defines two Data Sources.

Notice the use of variables like ${{FLX_DB_PASSWORD_FDADMIN}}, which will be automatically replaced when the Deploy workflow executes for a specific environment. You can also override specific values for each environment by providing override files, see the below variation of the file for DEV and PROD environments. You can just provide values that you would like to be different from the main configuration file. See more details on property file details at Read the complete article here.

Introduction

Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud. It offers best-in-class services across software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and even lets you put Oracle Cloud in your own data center. Oracle Cloud helps organizations drive innovation and business transformation by increasing business agility, lowering costs, and reducing IT complexity. The workshop content shows different aspects of Application Development in the cloud with different set of Oracle Cloud Services.

Prerequisites

The workshop is intended to work with an Oracle PaaS trial account. To get an account look into here. Get the following account details ready to complete the tutorial and replace to your values when it is required:

  • Oracle Cloud account username and password
  • Oracle Cloud identity domain
  • Data center/region

NOTE: Before you start to use your new Oracle Public Cloud services make sure that the replication policy has been set for your account. Otherwise you can not create storage container which is necessary for most of the services. See Selecting a Replication Policy for Oracle Storage Cloud Service.

Important

During the execution you will create several public cloud service instances what will be available on the world wide web. Even if these instances are for demo purposes keep in mind it is not a best practice to use weak or known (stored here in the tutorial) passwords especially in such open environment. Thus this workshop content does not recommend any password so you need to define those. You will be asked to provide password at certain points and please remember them for later usage.

The content contains several independent modules that cover different aspects of the application development in the Oracle Cloud. These modules could be executed independently unless you find in the Prerequisites that they are dependent on each other.


Support SpringBoot application development lifecycle using Oracle Developer Cloud Service, Application Container Cloud Service and Oracle Enterprise Pack For Eclipse
