Oracle recently made their ‘Kafka on Cloud’ service available: the Event Hub cloud service – offered as part of the Big Data Compute Cloud Service. In this article, I will briefly show the steps I went through to get up and running with this service. To be frank, it was not entirely intuitive – so this may be handy the next time I have to do it or perhaps when you are struggling. One obvious (more...)
As part of the Soaring through the Clouds demo of 17 Oracle Public Cloud services, I had to integrate SOA CS with both ACCS (Application Container Cloud) and ICS (Integration Cloud Service).
Calls from Service Bus and SOA Composites running in SOA Suite 12c on SOA CS to endpoints on ACCS (Node.js Express applications) and ICS (REST connector endpoint) were required in this demo. These calls are over SSL (to https endpoints) and for (more...)

This article is a sequel to EBS on Oracle Cloud Terminology - Part I. The last article introduced the tools employed in the new and improved automation that was released in early March. In contrast, this article focuses on the specific capabilities of the tools.
These terms are used throughout our Oracle by Example tutorials, and will also be employed in communications such as future blog articles.

In this article, we tell you about some terms used in the new and improved EBS on Oracle Cloud automation that was introduced in early March. These terms are used throughout our Oracle by Example tutorials, and will be employed going forward throughout all our communications, including future blog articles and training material.
In this "Part I of II", we define some of the key tools and constructs (more...)

Implementing DevOps and Agile Methodologies in Oracle Projects This
session will present Oracle's solution for managing development teams
and project and for automating the code to deploy cycle. Learn how
Oracle Developer Cloud Service - which is available for free with most
of the PaaS services - can help you achieve productive agile development
Oracle PaaS Service Manager (PSM) provides a command line interface (CLI) with which you can manage the lifecycle of various services in Oracle Public Cloud. This opens the door for scripting (recurring) tasks – such as (re)deployment of applications on ACCS to provisioning new environments. PSM makes performing admin operations on the Oracle Public Cloud a lot easier and efficient, compared to using the the GUI.
Note that the CLI is a thin wrapper over (more...)
To push an application on the Application Container Cloud Service (ACCS) from the terminal, you can use the Oracle product 'PaaS Service Manager Command Line Interface' (PSM CLI). PSM CLI is a tool to help you with scripting tasks you want to do against several Oracle Clouds. The steps to push your application to the Oracle Cloud are not that complex, in short:
We create a container in Storage Cloud for our application.
firm IDC estimates that the market for platform as a service (PaaS)
solutions will have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30 percent
and reach $14 billion by 2017. PaaS provides application runtime,
database, integration, messaging, and other services in the cloud,
accelerating application development and reducing infrastructure
acquisition and maintenance costs. Here are five best practices for
maximizing the business value of your PaaS solutions. Get the report here.
This post provides a fairly detailed introduction to registering and creating a trial instance of Oracle Messaging Cloud Service. We have written this as in our book Introducing Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) we use Oracle Messaging Cloud Service(OMCS) in chapter 8 to illustrate message based integration outside of ICS. Whist we describe the process for […]
Oracle Process Cloud Service is a PaaS (Platform as a Service) offering which centers around designing and managing (stand alone) business processes in the cloud. The focus is once again on business analysts and other non-technical people to automate business processes. Oracle has keyed them “citizen developers”. One of the features is the option to create forms that fulfill the “human task” interaction in the BPM process.
With my recent role as CTO/Advisor with www.analytos.com, during most of my conversation with Analytics leaders within the company, all are concern over security. At a recent conversation with another entrepreneur friend, one of his solution was stalled due to SQL injection issue on the cloud ( a valid concern , but is it valid ?) .
During my recent startup sting, cloud Allergy word was coined, and it did make sense, because allergies do exist and (more...)
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...)
When you’re using SOA Suite to run round the clock services you need to give a fair bit of thought to your deployment configuration so it becomes possible to perform rolling patches and other maintenance tasks not only to SOA itself but all the way down to the hardware – and at the low levels you have no control on the maintenance process. Although it is very easy to think that the moment you’re using (more...)
Do you want to lower the costs of your database estate? Are you trying to stay inside the license purchases you’ve made? Maybe looking to simplify the admin across servers, storage, networks and DBA?
It’s a question we get asked over and over in a world where there are great advantages in adopting the next generation of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Next Generation database platforms. Seeing AWS park its tanks on Oracles lawn (more...)
When continuing to adding components to the website, I added a Map component. Open your component palette in the Sites Cloud and drag and drop the map component to your site.
To make sure the maps shows the right place, we need to add the location. The easiest way to do this is to go to google maps, click on the location you want to display in your map and copy that location.
