5 things I wish I’d known when I started developing PaaS Extensions for Oracle SaaS Applications by Kashif


5 Points to consider before you start working to develop PaaS extensions on Java Cloud Service -SaaS Extension for your HCM, ERP or CX Cloud, these are based on my experience working on JCS-SX. Just to reiterate, Java Cloud Service is a PaaS component to use for development of any additional functionality required to meet business requirements while implementing Oracle SaaS/Cloud Applications HCM/ERP/CX.

1 – RESTFUL API Catalog

One of the important element of building PaaS extensions for Oracle SaaS Application is how it will talk to SaaS application (HCM, ERP) weather through Web services or any other method is available? When I started working on this, it took me some time to understand so here is my recipe for you to cook quickly and save your time.

Each SaaS application has exposed set of web-services to communicate to external applications and we should be aware about these available web-services, this is very important as any PaaS extension require call to the SaaS application.

You should have a comprehensive info on exposed web-services from Oracle SaaS products, refer these links to find out REST APIs

a – API Catalog to find out all exposed web-services. A place to find out all info on APIs for Applications, Platform and Infrastructure.

b- Go to https://docs.oracle.com/cloud and go to your desired Application, like HCM Cloud or ERP and click on Integrate (left side), you will get link to “Connect with REST APIs”. Read the complete article here.
