Introduction

To build functional and performant mobile apps, the back-end data services need to be optimized for mobile consumption. RESTful web services using JSON as payload format are widely considered as the best architectural choice for integration between mobile apps and back-end systems. At the same time, many existing enterprise back-end systems provide a SOAP-based web service application programming interface (API). In this article series we will discuss how Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) can be used to transform these enterprise system interfaces into a mobile-optimized REST-JSON API. This architecture layer is sometimes referred to as Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS). A-Team has been working on a number of projects using MCS to build this architecture layer. We will explain step-by-step how to build an MBaaS, and we will  share tips, lessons learned and best practices we discovered along the way. No prior knowledge of MCS is assumed. In part 1 we discussed the design of the REST API, in part 2 we covered the implementation of the “read” (GET) resources, in part 3 we discussed implementation of the “write” resources (POST,PUT and DELETE). In this fourth part, we will look at how we can use MCS Storage collections to cache payloads, and while doing so, we will use some more advanced concepts like chaining promises to execute multiple REST calls in sequence.

Main Article

In this article we will implement the GET /jobs endpoint which returns a list of jobs. This list is static, and as such can be cached within MCS to reduce the number of backend calls and speed up overall performance. Obviously, app developers can also choose to cache this list on the mobile device to further enhance performance, but that is beyond the scope of this article. We will use the MCS Storage API to store and retrieve the cached list of jobs. We will use a boolean query parameter refreshCache to force an update of the jobs list in storage.

Setting up the Storage Collection

To store files in MCS, a so-called storage collection must be created. Access to a storage collection is handled through roles. When creating a new storage collection, you assign roles that have read and/or write privileges. Users with the appropriate role(s) can then store files in the collection and/or retrieve them. So, we first create a role named HRManager, by clicking on the Mobile User Management menu option, select the Roles tab, and then click on New Role.

After creating the role, we select the Storage menu option and click on New Collection to create the collection. Read the complete article here.

clip_image001I’m going to share few more tips, how to implement CRUD in JET and call ADF BC 12.2.1 REST service. You are going to learn how to implement table row selection and how to call REST PATCH method to update data through ADF BC REST service. Why very practical? You can take sample application code and use it in your project. Less theory and more practical hints – this is my approach.
This is how it looks JET table (with pagination control – Oracle JET Collection Paging Control and ADF BC REST Pagination Perfect Combination) and form. Download sample application – JETCRUDApp_v2.zip. User can select row and edit data in the form:

I’m going to change salary value for Alexander Hunold and invoke PATCH method with Update button click:

Through network monitor in NetBeans we can check REST method execution. PATCH method is executed for employee ID 103 with Content-Type set to Oracle ADF resource item: Read the complete article here.

Dear WebLogic & Developer Partner Community

Thanks for the huge interest in the Fusion Middleware & PaaS Partner Community Forum 2016! With more than 225 registrations and 180 confirmed attendees the conference is booked out! We are in process to try to get additional budget to host more attendees. In case you want to attend please register online here. We will add all new registration to the waiting list and decide after my holiday beginning of March 2016. For the lucky ones who got a seat feel free to join our Facebook event page here.

The conference always have been booked out. This time it sold out in record time, we opened the registration 100 days in advance and in less than 50 days before the conference there is no seat available. This proofs the interest in Oracle Middleware & PaaS is huge and our community is stronger & more active than ever before! Thanks to all speakers and attendees who will make also the 22nd conference in Valencia a super success!

For all the attendees who will not make it to Valencia we consider to live stream the conference. We consider either to use YouTube streaming or twitter Periscope. We would like to get your feedback please send us a tweet @wlsCommunity and #ofmForum.

WebLogic 12.2.1 continues to gain momentum read the latest post from Java Rock Star Adam Bien. Key feature of the new release is the Multi-Tenant functionality. Make sure you read the WebLogic 12.2.1 Multi-Tenant and Resource Consumption Management with WebLogic Multitenant articles. One of the easiest ways to try WebLogic 12.2.1 is on Docker. The other option is to try Java Cloud Service. Thanks to Lucas Jellema for the great articles part I and part II. We continue to offer free JCS trial accounts for Community members. Thanks to the community for all the excellent WebLogic 12.2.1 articles: UKOUG Application Server & Middleware SIG & FlexDeploy 3.1 & IoT Available

Across EMEA we run PaaS partner workshops for partners, make sure you attend them to get ready for the cloud. A great example it the Mobile Cloud Service 3 Days Workshop which took place in Madrid. Thanks to the community for all the excellent development tool articles: Handling ADF BC 12.2.1 REST Validation in Oracle JET & Push Notification to delete local data & ADF: Filtering parent and child nodes & Automatic ADF Logout on Browser Close with WebSocket & Close the containing parent popup component & Add and delete values in POJO & Edit Use Case for ADF 12.2.1 Dashboard & Consuming a SOAP Web Service & Database Change Notification Listener & DOAG DevCamp
