As you start building more complex applications in Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service, you’ll might need to define more complex interactions between objects or validations on rows of data or specific fields.

In the new version of ABCS that we rolled out in February we added these type of capabilities.

There are several things you could do with the new Business Rules section of ABCS

  • Triggers – allow you create logic that will be executed in specific CRUD events such as when you insert, remove or update a record.
  • Object Validators – allowing you to define checks across multiple fields in your object
  • Field Validators – allowing you to define a check on specific field values.
  • Object Functions – reusable functions that can be called from the other points

Note that these logic points will be running on the server side of ABCS.

In the video below I demonstrate a couple of these capabilities. You’ll learn how to update one object when a specific value is set in another object’s field. You’ll also see how to check whether a combination of values in fields in a record is valid. Watch the video here.

A common use case for applications that have multiple pages is passing values between pages. For example you might want to pick up a specific record or value in one page and then use that as a parameter for a query in another page.

In the February release or Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service as part of the extension hook points that we provide, we added support for shared resources. These are JavaScript libraries you can add to your application – and that can be used across your app.

In the demo below I show you how you can use the built-in sample template for a shared resource to define a variable, and then how that variable is exposed in various places in the product through the expression builder allowing you to set its value in one page and use that value in another one. Watch the video here.

Oracle Partner RapidValue Solutions just released a whitepaper that discusses how to create a “unified mobile app,” integrating Oracle E-Business Suite, Taleo, Salesforce, Microsoft Outlook, and Kofax applications into one mobile solution.  In this sample integration, RapidValue used Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) to build, connect, and deploy a unified mobile app for Oracle customer Brocade.

Brocade, a data storage and networking products company, was running a customized version of Oracle’s E-Business Suite, making it difficult and untimely to run out-of-the-box EBS apps, and the company needed an integrated solution for its sales force, who relied on both Oracle and non-Oracle applications to perform in both the office and in the field.

RapidValue built this "unified mobile app" using MAF, and then used MCS to both integrate the app with Brocade’s backend systems, including non-Oracle applications, and to support the app with MCS’ Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) features. Some of these features included creating custom REST APIs for webservice orchestration within MCS, using engagement features like push notifications to reach employees more effectively, and authenticating users through MCS’ SSO feature.

As an integration/backend developer, when starting a project using Mobile Cloud Service, it is important to have some understanding of what this MBaaS (Mobile Backend as a Service) has to offer in terms of security features. This is important in order to be able to configure and test MCS. In this blog I will give examples on how to configure and use the basic authentication and OAuth2 features which are provided to secure APIs. You can read the Oracle documentation (which is quite good for MCS!) on this topic here.

Introduction

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service offers platform APIs to offer specific features. You can create custom APIs by writing JavaScript code to run on Node.js. Connectors are used to access backend systems. This blogs focuses on authentication options for incoming requests.

The connectors are not directly available from the outside. MCS can secure custom and platform APIs. This functionality is taken care of by the Mobile Backend and the custom API configuration.

Getting started

The first thing to do when you want to expose an API is assign the API to a Mobile Backend. You can do this in the Mobile Backend configuration screen, APIs tab.

You can allow anonymous access, but generally you want to know who accesses your API. Also because MCS has a license option to pay for a specific number of API calls; you want to know who you are paying for. In order to require authentication on a per user basis, you first have to create a user and assign it to a group. You can also do this from the Mobile Backend configuration. Go to the Mobile Users Management tab to create users and groups. Read the complete article here.
