Hackathon build a PaaS solution August 27th–31st 2018 Lisbon Portugal

clip_image002

This session is going focus around learning new products and innovating in a true “hackathon” style scenario. You may be a PaaS developer who wants to learn more about integrating with SaaS, or a SaaS Architect who wants to learn more about building a PaaS extension. Meet in the middle at this hackathon extreme stream.

Our Agenda will comprise of 2 days of quick intro training, mainly presentations and discussions on the various Oracle PaaS and SaaS Services. The topics will range from a quick intro to Integration with OIC Integration, Extending processes with Process Cloud, deploying code to an application container cloud and then finally exploring various SaaS APIs. Each Service will have a 1-2hr “quickstart” where you will learn the basics of developing, and deploying, with that service and understanding the SaaS APIs. We will give you tutorials for each of the services we discuss for you to complete at your own pace.

Then comes the fun part. We will then give you two days in “HackAThon” style. You will split into teams and come up with a PaaS4SaaS Scenario using some, or all, of the services we discussed in the previous two days. The rest of the time you will spend building a solution. On hand will be experts from the ATeam, Product Mgmt and your colleagues in your team . At the end of the final day we will have a presentation and vote on the solution.

August 27th – August 31st 2018 in Lisbon Portugal.

Trainers: Angelo Santagata & Dolf Dijkstra, Stefan Koser, Muhammad Abdel-Halim, Andy Knight, Dolf Dijkstra

Effective Use Cases for XQuery Library in OSB 12c by Sonal Sharma

image

During my recent engagements, working with SOA Suite 12c, I have realized the strength of the XQuery library feature (introduced in OSB 12c) to simplify SOA 12c implementations by avoiding copying code in various places, and instead centralizing it. In this article we will discuss following:

  • Overview of XQuery library
  • Effective Use Cases for XQuery library
  • Working Example: "Storing customer specific business logic"
    • Without using XQuery lib
    • Using XQuery lib – detailed steps involved
  • Summary
Overview of XQuery library

Creating an XQuery library was a new feature introduced in SOA Suite 12c. This feature provides functionality to reuse XQuery functions and avoid repeatedly coding the same logic, as logic can now be centralized at one place. This is a very handy feature and can be used to strengthen and simplify solutions implemented on the SOA Suite platform. Read the complete article here.

ICS On-Premise Monitor – Agent Ping by Greg Mally

image

The Integration Cloud Service (ICS) Connectivity Agent is a feature of ICS that helps with the cloud to ground (on-premise) use case that is common to companies who are moving into cloud technologies. The agent provides an ICS subscriber the ability to create ICS integrations that interact with on-premise resources like legacy applications, databases, etc. without compromising the on-premise resource. In an attempt to make the agent as simple and secure as possible, it is located behind the firewall where the on-premise resource is located and communicates to the Oracle Public Cloud (OPC) via HTTP only. This allows the agent to use existing firewall configurations without added requirements on the “typical” organization network. However, some networks are more secure, complex, and/or stable than others and therefore are less “typical”. When these types of networks are encountered, it prevents the Connectivity Agent from successfully communicating from ground to cloud (or ICS communicating from cloud to ground). This blog focuses on a scenario where the network that the agent is installed on is flaky/unstable.

Although the Connectivity Agent has gone through a fair amount of maturity due to exposure to a wide range of network environments, there are those edge-case networks that can introduce communication challenges from ground to cloud. Sometimes these environments impact communication such that the agent thinks everything is working fine when in fact messaging has broken down between the on-premise network and OPC. What do you do when you know the agent is not receiving messages and the various ICS/agent logs do not indicate any problem? To make the scenario more complex, the communication breakdown does not follow any type of pattern (i.e., it is random). The key to finding the root cause is to narrow the window where the problem surfaces. Once the window is narrowed down, things like tcpdumps and/or tools like Wireshark can be leveraged.

Decoding JWT using the API Platform Groovy Policy by Ricardo Ferreira

image

Introduction

With the explosion of APIs; most of the today’s computing challenges are being driven by it and therefore, new standards had to emerge to make sure that APIs can be used securely, while allowing developers to avoid having to reinvent the wheel every time they implement aspects such as authorization. One good example is JWT (JSON Web Token) which allows API developers to implement authorization – but without requiring that the user credentials be shared across systems. Moreover, JWT can also be signed (by using JWS) and encrypted (by using JWE) which brings even more robustness to the table.

JWT is widely used in the context of OAuth 2.0, which defines a protocol for authorization. Implementing OAuth 2.0 results in an API granting authorization for a given request as long as the request carries a valid token. If the token is valid, the API considers the request authorized and processes it accordingly. This design is simple but very powerful because it eliminates the need to authenticate every single request and more importantly – it eliminates the need to carry the user credentials with the request.

As shown in figure 1, the token is originally obtained from an authorization server that client applications have access to. Once the token is obtained, it can be re-used over multiple API calls as long the token remains valid. Tokens often became invalid due to expiration. Most authorization servers are configured to define an expiration value on every token created. In this context; the API outsources authorization aspects to the authorization server, therefore becoming free of that responsibility. However, the API is still responsible for performing token verification. That can be either implemented directly in the API or, it can be delegated to a gateway layer responsible for exposing the API to the outside world. While nothing can stop a developer from hard coding the token verification in the API code, it is considered a best practice to delegate that task to a gateway layer such as APIPCS. The reason is simple: that way you can promote better agility while building APIs; since this repeatable and error prone coding will be eliminated. Moreover, the APIs will inherit greater robustness regarding token verification since the gateway implements this functionality very efficiently. Read the complete article here.
