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.

imageOracle JET Hybrid enabled with Cordova Push plugin can receive notifications sent from Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). You should read how to setup infrastructure in this article – Your first Push notification based Oracle JET Hybrid application!. I will focus on implementation steps and will provide working sample app for download.
Sample JET hybrid application provides login functionality. During login we register device ID with MCS service, this allows to receive notifications:

After login is completed, default dashboard page is displayed. At this point, application is ready to receive notification (even if application will be closed or mobile device screen is locked):

Notification from MCS can be sent programmatically from API implementation. I will show this in the next posts. For now we can use MCS UI to test if notification is working. Mobile Backend provides functionality to send notifications. I can target notification to specific user: Read the complete article here.

In this 3-part post series I will show how to build an Oracle MAX Application that will display the medal standing in Rio 2016.
This is what we are going to do in order to achieve our goal.
First we are going to use Oracle MCS internal database to store the urls of the flags that we will display in the application and we will also create a custom API to retrieve the records from the database.

Rio2016 Medal Standings (Part1): Using MCS internal Database

The second step is to design and implement the API that we will consume from the MAX application.

We will get the rankings using rio2016 node module that can be found in github.

Rio2016 Medal Standings (Part2): Designing and implementing rankings custom API (Coming soon)

And the last step we have to do is to build Oracle MAX application

Rio2016 Medal Standings (Part3): Building MAX application (Coming soon)

Let’s start! The node module that we are going to use to retrieve the standings doesn’t give us the flags url so we need to get them.
At this moment we can display either static or remote images in Oracle MAX, but the source of the image has to be its absolute url, we cannot display images from MCS Storage. This would be a great feature to have.
I stored in a server lots of flags, but we need to know what url corresponds to each country and we will use MCS Database to do it.

First we are going to create a custom api ‘RankingCountries’. Read the complete article here.

We already learned how to deploy and access ADF BC REST services from Oracle Java Cloud – ADF BC REST 12.2.1.0 Running Live in Oracle Java Cloud. It’s time to see how ADF BC REST can be consumed by Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS). In my point of view, key benefit of MCS is ability to simplify Web Service access for mobile clients, by aggregating these Web Services from different sources and simplifying them. I will try to describe it in very structure way, how to define MCS interface based on ADF BC REST.
Let’s start from the top – MCS Web Service interface visible to mobile clients. I have defined four endpoints in MCS, based on ADF BC REST service – list of employees, new employee, employee by ID and update employee. As you can see from MCS tester, implementation details are hidden from the user and you would not know there is ADF BC REST is working in the background.
POST
Create new record. Data is supplied through Body: Read the complete article here.

Oracle Forms, as technology, underpins tens of thousands of applications across the globe and in particular in the Nordic region if you pay tax, use the railways, eat fish, use a phone, transport goods by truck, book into a hotel or even if you furnish your home with particular brand of popular furniture then in all likelihood there is an Oracle Forms system keeping that business running.

Whilst we all recognize the importance of stable data-driven enterprise applications we can’t fail to recognize that mobile devices dominate our personal lives; and through a process of osmosis, those mobile demands are more and more finding their way into our day-to-day Enterprise IT systems.

So what might mobile IT bring to the party? Could you improve your business by taking your current, traditional processes out of the back office and into the hands of users at the point they need it? Can you still use the IT assets and services that underpin your core business, but surface them to users in a modern mobile user experience? What are the components of a successful mobile strategy?

I’m pleased to confirm that the Oracle User Groups in Denmark and Finland will be hosting me speaking at dedicated events in November on Mobile, on how you can reuse existing IT assets such as Oracle Forms. Each session will explore the mobile "art of the possible" and introduce the technologies that underpin a successful mobile architecture. The agenda will follow:

  • User Group Introduction
  • Oracle Forms State of the Union (Michael Ferrante, via webinar)
  • Why Mobile is Important
  • Oracle Forms and Mobile: The art of the possible
  • Building a successful mobile architecture
  • Customer stories
  • Open discussion and Q&A

The roadshow will continue in the new year (January) with events in Sweden and Norway. To register to attend this event, please click the link below.

  • 29th November, DOUG, Denmark, Oracle Ballerup
  • 30th November, OUGF, Finland, Radisson Blue Seaside Hotelli, Helsinki

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service allows you to implement Custom API using node.js. This is a powerful feature as it allows you to use any of the existing node.js modules in your implementation.
In this post I am going to show you how to create and download a PDF file that will contain the weather information for the provided city, that we will get calling a REST Connector.
If you don’t know how to create a REST Connector check this post: Oracle Mobile Cloud Service: Create an API that calls a REST web service
First we need to create a connector. This is the URL we are going to use:

http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/forecast/daily

Openweathermap is a free rest api where we can get the weather forecast.

We have to create some rules as we need to pass some parameters into the url. These are default values that we can override when calling the connector.

The next step is to create a Custom API. Read the complete article here.
