Building mobile apps can be as challenging as using a certain 1990s cult workout routine in order to get into shape… that is to say, it can be pretty difficult!  IT departments often will be tasked with building and maintaining complex mobile applications, and therefore, other types of apps sometimes are de-prioritized. While widely used consumer-facing apps and upgrades/maintenance to back end infrastructure supporting those apps always will be a priority, simple apps serving useful but specific purposes for employees, or niche uses for consumers, sometimes can be overlooked. Yet for marketers, sales personnel, service reps, and others who need simple mobile solutions for their everyday business needs, this can be a problem.

What are business users to do? Should they wait patiently as their mobile programmers address other technical issues before focusing on line-of-business needs? Should they outsource their mobile projects to third party developers, or to agencies, (potentially) speeding up development time, while increasing costs? Or is there an easy and quick way to develop, in-house, the apps that business users require to make their jobs more efficient?

In the September-October issue of Oracle Magazine, Oracle Senior Product Manager Chris Muir answers this question and explains how the Oracle Mobile Application Accelerator (MAX), as part of Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS), can help business users to build, test, and deploy simple mobile apps… in under eight minutes!

When we want to create a new Custom API, we have to define the each of the endpoints and, if we want to consume them from Oracle MAX, we have to define the schemas and then add some mock data. Since version 16.4.1 (v3.0), there is a new feature, Express API, where we can create the resources and the schemas easily and declaratively.
I have to say that we can still create the APIs in the old way. But if we want to use Express API, we just have to select that option when creating an API.

The creation popup is the same as in previous versions.

But the API page is different. We no longer see endpoints, schema, security, types and traits menus, and instead of those we have resources menu option.

After creating a resource, we can see 4 tabs.

In the first one we can change the configuration of the resource and we can also define child and parent relationships between resources. Read the complete article here.

imageAs we can implement our Custom APIs using node.js, we can almost use any of the available node modules like for example Oracle MCS: Creating PDF files in Custom APIs.
In a project we are developing we have the requirement to display a twitter timeline of a hashtag.
Today is the OTN Appreciation Day and in this post we are going to make a #ThanksOTN twitter feed using Oracle MCS and Oracle JET.
First of all we are going to start with the API design. We are going to create an API called TwitterAPI and a GET method inside feed endpoint.

The next step is to implement the API. To get the twitter feed we are going to use node-twitter module.  To install the module we have to execute npm install twitter  in the folder where our package.json file is.
After that we need to include the module as a dependency.

Moving to the javascript part, this is the implementation.

To get the consumer_key, consumer_secret, access_token_key and access_token_secret we need to create a twitter application. We are just returning the json that the module returns but we could implement something that caches the json and we just call the module every certain amount of time.

To finish the MCS part we have to upload the implementation zip file to MCS.

Moving to JET side, first we need to manually install the MCS library that can be find in your MCS instance.

Then the JET implementation looks like this: Read the complete article here.

Remember the Oracle Mobile Challenge at OpenWorld 2016? Well, it looks like a good idea is worth duplicating. Our friends over at Avanttic created a similar app using Oracle Mobile Cloud Service – but instead of using Oracle MAF as the client, they decided to use Oracle JET.  This was developed for the Oracle Digital Day 2016 that took place recently in Madrid. Unlike the Mobile Challenge app used at OpenWorld, they tweaked the game to encourage visiting specific booths, tweeting with specific hashtags and meeting specific experts. The app used Estimote beacons to leverage the new location services in Oracle MCS and a web dashboard to display some analytics about the location of the attendees and to give away the prizes.
According to the Avanttic team:

"The backend is fully made with Oracle MCS, storing the data in MCS db and using analytics. We also used some node modules like twitter to track tweets and then we cache them and evaluate the hashtags to know if the user completed the challenge. It was a total success!"
"The cool thing about the development is that we made the whole application and the backend in just 3 weeks (it was after work, so we just spent like 2-3 hours a day)"

What do we say about Oracle Mobile? Build better apps faster! Say it with me and hallelujah mobile brothers and sisters! Build better apps faster!
Some screenshots are attached but you can also download the app from apple store and google play store in this links: Read the complete article here.

In this post, we will see an overview about all the knowledge learned in the Lisbon summer camp – Mobile section. There we go:

Building AuraPlayer web Services

First, we created REST web services to manage the Forms summit application using AuraPlayer’s Service Manager. We used IE to launch the summit Forms.

We created several services, pushing the button “record services.

Then we defined the service name an the form URL. The URL form is connected to a Forms Server where AuraPlayer is installed. We have some options that we can use on AuraPlayer Manager in the record time. Read the complete article here.
