ANNOUNCING Application Development Platform 16.4.5 with useful new updates, enhancements, and relevant announcements to a vast range of services in the Application Development portfolio, including Java Cloud, Application Container Cloud, Developer Cloud, Application Builder Cloud, Database Cloud, Exadata Express Cloud, and more.

Java Cloud Service

· A streamlined Creation Wizard has 3 pages instead of 5.

· The Topology page was removed. To scale an instance or to add a load balancer, use the Instance Overview page or the instance menu.

· Use the new Cloud Stack Manager console and template to create both DBCS and JCS in a single operation. See this tutorial. This is an alternative to using the JCS creation wizard.

· A new security chapter was added to the documentation.

· Two new compute shapes are available.

Application Container Cloud Service
You can now use the new internal networking support to deploy clustered applications to Application Container Cloud. With this support you can, for example, deploy clustered Tomcat applications with replicated session state, so you can scale in without losing the user session. See Preparing a Clustered Application for Deployment in Developing for Oracle Application Container Cloud Service.

· In Getting Started with Chatbots, Tamer Qumhieh provides a step-by-step guide on how to get started with chatbots by building a Facebook chatbot that is implemented using Node.js running on Oracle Application Cloud Service.

Developer Cloud Service

· New Entitlements:
Developer Cloud Service is now provisioned with the following PaaS and IaaS services:

· Application Builder Cloud Service

· Exadata Express Cloud Service

· Database as a Service

· Any metered IaaS, including metered Compute, Oracle Container Cloud Service, etc.

· New blog posts:

· Enabling Continuous Delivery with Developer and SOA Cloud Service

· Microservice Approach – Using Oracle Developer Cloud to Build and Deploy Node.js and DBCS REST Service Projects

· Developing Dropwizard Applications for Application Container Cloud Service with Developer Cloud

It passed almost two years since my previous post about Oracle Java Cloud and ADF – End-To-End ADF Cloud Deployment Process. There is huge improvement in Oracle Cloud, great progress done in these two years by Oracle. Access and management of Oracle Cloud environment is so smooth now, it is even hard to say you are working with your own on premise servers or cloud machines. This is great, I’m impressed – well done Oracle.
I have implemented ADF BC REST application with JDEV 12.2.1.0 and deployed it to Java Cloud. You can access REST service yourself from this URL: http://140.86.3.179/restapp/rest/1/Employees (username: redsam, password: welcome1).
I can monitor deployed application with ADF BC REST through Enterprise Manager in the Cloud. ADF BC REST request/response is going through Oracle RESTServlet, this is visible in the statistics:

There are no changes required to ADF application to be deployed to the Cloud. Simply make sure to provide correct datasource name, to be able to load data from Database Cloud. I have created jdbc/HrDS data source in Java Cloud, to point to Database Cloud. Using the same data source for AM configuration, this AM will be responsible to return data from ADF BC for REST requests: Read the complete article here.

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.

The Cloud has become an integral part of the IT Ecosystem. Organizations are moving their huge physical IT infrastructure to the Cloud for better governance, lower TCO and better ROI. This article showcases the simplicity of using Oracle Java Cloud Service (JCS), Oracle Database Cloud Service (DCS) and JDeveloper 12c  to develop, deploy and test Web Applications

Use Case

I have taken a simple use case of creating an HR Application to show and modify employee information.

In this exercise,

  1. Create Database Cloud Service
  2. Connect DCS using SQL Developer
  3. Set up HR User in DCS, create tables and populate data
  4. Develop HR Application using JDeveloper 12c
  5. Create datasource in JCS to connect HR Schema
  6. Set up Putty to tunnel JCS connection
  7. Set up JCS Connection using JDeveloper 12c
  8. Deploy HRApplication to JCS using JDeveloper 12c
  9. Access diagnostic logs using Putty

Solution

Create Database Service

Log in to Oracle Cloud Service at https://myservices.oraclecloud.com/mycloud/faces/gDashboard.jspx


Supply Identity Domain, User Name, User Password and Sign In.

This dashboard page will open:

Click "Open Oracle Database Cloud Service" to open the page below:

Click the “Create Service” button to create a new Oracle Cloud Database Service. The page below will open. Select Service Level.

The first option, Oracle Database Cloud Service, will be enabled only if the associated Oracle Cloud Storage Account has a container created and available.

Otherwise, choose the Oracle Database Cloud Service-Virtual Image option.

Billing Frequency needs to be specified even if you have a trial account. I have selected “Monthly."

Click “Next.” You’ll see this screen, where you can specify the database version:

Click “Next” and select your Software Edition. I have selected Enterprise Edition.

Click “Next.”

Assign values to the required attribute:

  • Service Name – Specify Database Cloud Service Name
  • Compute Storage – Select configuration you would like to use
  • VM Public Key – Supply Public Key (created as part of prerequisite)
  • Usable Database Storage – Specify storage requirement for the database service
  • Total data file storage – Specify total data file storage
  • Administration Password – Specify Password for the SYS user
  • Confirm Password specified above
  • DB (Database) name – Automatically populated. User can modify if required.
  • PDB (Pluggable Database) Name – Automatically populated. User can modify if required.
  • Backup destination –  The “Both Cloud and Local Storage” option will  be available only if container is configured. Otherwise, user can select “Local Storage Only.”
    If backup destination is “Both Cloud and Local Storage,”  user will have to supply:
    • Cloud Storage Container – e.g., identityDomainName/containerName
    • Cloud Storage User name – cloud admin user name (normally email id)
    • Cloud Storage Password – cloud admin password.

Click “Next.” Confirm on the landing page to start creation of DBaas Service. Read the complete article here.
