CI, DevOps and ALM for Oracle SOA Suite with Oracle Developer Cloud Service by Shay Shmeltzer

imageWe have a lot of developers who are using JDeveloper to develop applications with Oracle SOA Suite, and in this blog I wanted to show them how the combination of JDeveloper along with Oracle Developer Cloud Service can help automate their whole development and delivery lifecycle.

One unique aspect of Developer Cloud Service is that it has an instance of JDeveloper available in the build environment. This allows customers who are building Oracle SOA artifacts to leverage the OJDeploy mechanism to package their applications as part of a continuous integration cycle just like they do during development time.

With the improved DevCS integration that we added in JDeveloper 12.2.1, developers can go beyond integration with the Git server offered by DevCS and can now interact with the DevCS task tracking system directly as well as associate code changes to specific tasks they are working on. 

In this 10 minutes video I show:

  • Creating Ant based builds for Oracle SOA artifacts
  • Automating Continuous Integration build and packaging for Oracle SOA from Developer Cloud Service
  • Managing SOA project code with Git and Developer Cloud Service
  • Tracking tasks from JDeveloper and monitor agile development in Developer Cloud Service
  • Read the complete article here.

PaaS Services Explained: The Most Common SaaS Use Cases by Richard Bingham

image

 
Introduction

This article summarizes our selection of the Oracle Cloud Platform Services (PaaS) with specific focus on use with an existing Oracle Cloud Applications (SaaS) environment. In other content the term PaaS4SaaS has been used for this context.

This is the first of a series of articles in which we will use examples to demonstrate some of the key functions and features inside the Oracle PaaS services, and indeed many will be derived from real implementations. Again the focus is on getting value for use with an existing Oracle Fusion Cloud (SaaS) environment, as opposed to a general feature overview.

Clearly all services evolve of time, and as such the information provided is accurate at the time of writing, and where possible links to updated content will be provided.

Use-Cases

In order to organize this series of articles, and at the same time portray the most-common use of each of the services, we’ve selected the following four broad categories within which to place each of the PaaS service offerings.

  • Build custom extension applications
  • Host your existing extension applications
  • Integrate your existing custom and packaged applications
  • Enhance your solution by adding ready-to-go features.

Obviously there may be some overlap between categories with some services. The following table shows how the PaaS Services which are mostly likely to complement a SaaS environment fit into the categories above. Read the complete article here.
