Oracle MCS with ADF BC REST Connector

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).

Provisioning backend services to mobile with Oracle MCS

MCS, or Mobile Cloud Services, is Oracle’s relatively new PaaS tool for provisioning your data to mobile devices or IoT  devices. And actually, it’s a pretty simple tool. MCS aims at simplifying the creation of mobile API’s (especially REST API’s) on existing or newly build web services. It delivers an enterprise Mobile Backend-as a-Service (MBaaS).
On top of that, mobile applications can be created. MCS supports natively build apps, hybrid apps or one of the no-code app development (more...)

If you guessed that a new PeopleTools (more...)

Sticker Shock

A little off-subject, but still felt this experience was worth sharing.  I'll get back on track next post.

My smart phone is an iPhone 5.  My carrier is ATT.  It's been a great relationship since the iPhone first came out.  Sadly, I think it's coming to an end.

My two-year contract expired on June 1st...ATT informed me immediately that I was eligible for a phone upgrade and a new contract.  Exciting news, as I've (more...)
