Creates an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. Optionally, you can:

  • Enable a load balancer
  • Enable Oracle Coherence (that is, add a Coherence data tier)

The heap sizes for the Managed Server processes are determined automatically by the compute shape you specify for the WebLogic component type. See About Default Heap Size Settings for Oracle Java Cloud Service Instances in Using Oracle Java Cloud Service. When creating a service instance, you can define your own JVM memory configuration if you don’t want to use the computed values, and you can customize the Managed Server JVM arguments configuration.

Note: Oracle Java Cloud Service uses Oracle Database Cloud – Database as a Service to host the Oracle Fusion Middleware component schemas required by Oracle Java Required Files (JRF). Before you create an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you must have already created a database deployment on Oracle Database Cloud – Database as a Service. Read the complete article here.

To create a new Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, use the Provision New Java Cloud Service wizard as described in the following sections.

· Invoking the Provision New Java Cloud Service Wizard

· Defining the Subscription Type

· Selecting the Software Release

· Selecting the Software Edition

· Configuring the Service Details

· Confirming Your Oracle Java Cloud Service Instance Creation

Before creating an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, review the prerequisites described in Before You Begin with Oracle Java Cloud Service. Only a Java administrator can create a service instance, as described in About Oracle Java Cloud Service Roles and User Accounts.

When planning to use Oracle Coherence in Oracle Java Cloud Service: There are certain options you must select and specific configuration details for a Coherence data tier you must define in the wizard. See About Oracle Java Cloud Service—Coherence Instances for information about the choices and selections you must make so that an environment is properly created and configured for you. Ensure that you’re familiar with capacity units before you create your service instance. See About Capacity Units for Oracle Java Cloud Service—Coherence Instances for information about using a default capacity unit or defining your own configuration. Read the complete article here.

ANNOUNCING Application Development Platform 16.4.3 with updates and enhancements to Java Cloud Service, Application Container Cloud, Database Cloud Service, and an introduction to a new service, Exadata Express Cloud Service.
Java Cloud Service

  • Auto-scaling can now be configured in JCS to automatically scale a cluster in or out, based on CPU utilization, as explained in About Automatic Scaling in Using Oracle Java Cloud Service.
  • JCS can generate SSH keys and storage containers during service provisioning, so these prerequisites were removed from all Getting Started collateral (video, tutorial, etc).
  • When using AppToCloud to migrate an existing WebLogic Server domain, JMS and Java Mail resources are automatically captured from the source domain and imported into your Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. See Creating an Oracle Java Cloud Service Instance with AppToCloud in Using Oracle Java Cloud Service.
  • There are now two ways to access Chat for support. You can either use the Chat icon that appears at the top of the Oracle Cloud console to the left of the Preferences dropdown or you can click the Help icon (?) and, from the Help Drawer, select Chat with us.
  • A new Security chapter was added to Using Oracle Java Cloud Service.
  • A new Scaling tab was added in the JCS Help Center

Application Container Cloud

Database Cloud Service

Exadata Express Cloud Service
The recently-launched Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service will be included in future announcement messages. Exadata Express provides a low-cost, entry-level Oracle Database running on Exadata in Oracle Cloud. Developer benefits include a standard SQL interface, RESTful Web Services, documents and collections interfaces, drivers for popular programming languages, integrated Application Express (APEX) for rapid application development, and a range of free client tools and IDEs.

Events & Assets
Oracle Code
Oracle Code is being planned as a 20-city 7-month long event for developers, who build modern Web, mobile, enterprise, and cloud-native applications. Oracle Code will focus on the latest software developer technologies, practices and trends, including containers, microservices, API First applications, chatbots, AI, and machine learning, and DevOps tools and practices. Educational sessions for developing software in Java, Node.js, and other languages using Oracle Database, MySQL, and NoSQL databases will be included.

Custom applications with a user interface can be categorized along various dimensions. Is the user interface a front end for a system of record or a system of change or innovation? What about the users: trained power users or very occasional visitors? What is the purpose of the system, such as entice potential buyers or voters, inform and support users with knowledge and information, facilitate data entry and imageother data manipulation tasks? What are the channels and communication protocols through which a user experience should be provided: web browser, mobile device, email, telephone (voice response and SMS), chat, wearables? What are the non-functional specifications: volume, performance, availability, confidentiality. Will the system live for a long time, undergo frequent changes during its lifetime, be used in an international and multilingual environment? How is the change process to be organized, who needs to [be able to]make the changes?

Oracle offers a number of technologies to build custom applications along with a portfolio of cloud services that can be used to create or enrich a part of the end user experience.

The most prominent application development technologies offered by Oracle are presented in the matrix below, organized by programming language and delivery platform. Each of these technologies can be deployed on the Oracle Public Cloud and except for MAX and ABCS, they can also be run on premises. Except APEX, all of these technologies are used within the SaaS development teams at Oracle and as such guarantee a certain degree of strategic importance and continued evolution and investment for Oracle. The rate of evolution differs considerably between these offerings, with Forms at the mature end and JET on a fast innovation track. The arrows suggest migration paths – both within Oracle and for the rest of the world.

ADF on JCS-SX and ABCS are the two technologies promoted for doing SaaS extensions – for example on top of ERP Cloud or Sales Cloud, leveraging the quickly growing set of RESTful APIs available with the SaaS products.

Note that plain, standards and/or 3rd party framework based Java EE application development should be considered part of this matrix and the Oracle technology spectrum for application development. Read the complete article here.
