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

· New Training:

· Developer Cloud Service Product Update for NAS, LAD, & EMEA

Partner Resources (community membership required)

· Sales Kits: DevOps: Agility for Dev / Test / Deploy & App Development and Deployment in the Cloud: Java EE Development & Testing & App Development and Deployment in the Cloud: Lightweight Web Applications & Reduce TCO through Consolidation&

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.

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.
