During this week’s Oracle OpenWorld Conference, we were given some sneak peeks into the short term future of the Oracle SOA Suite. During various roadmap sessions, on the demo grounds as well as in the keynote session by Thomas Kurian (the replay of which you can see here: http://medianetwork.oracle.com/video/player/2687033686001), new features were described and demonstrated, allowing us to get a fairly good overview of what is going to come for SOA Suite – later in 2013 and sometime in 2014 (probably the first half of that year).
The SOA Suite plays an important part in the three themes Thomas Kurian set down for the Fusion Middleware suite of products: support for mobility, cloud and business user empowerment.
Some of the highlighted new aspects of Oracle SOA Suite are:
- Adapters to connect from on-premise to in-the-cloud – specifically targeting SalesForce, RightNow and also providing an SDK to create custom integrations into the cloud (the first cloud adapters will be released on 11g, before the end of the year)
- Mobile enablement by exposing RESTful services that communicate using JSON as well as adding the capability to call out to such services (12c functionality)
- Enhanced More >
Dit is de zomer van de 12c-lanceringen. Na de database zijn sinds vorige week Oracle ADF 12c, Oracle JDeveloper 12c, en Oracle WebLogic 12c beschikbaar. Met zoveel nieuwe mogelijkheden dat AMIS op 14 augustus een gratis seminar organiseert waarin we de nieuwe versies introduceren, becommentariëren en vooral ook demonstreren.
Maar liefst tien specialisten verzorgen presentaties: Steven Davelaar van het A-Team van Oracle en Aino Andriessen , Betty van Dongen, Edwin Biemond, Jonathan Damen, Luc Bors, Lucas Jellema, Marcel Oldenkamp, Niels Gorter en Paul Swiggers van AMIS.
De onderwerpen die in het programma aan bod komen zijn:
- Oracle JDeveloper 12c – de vernieuwde IDE
- Software engineering met Maven, Git e.a.
- Oracle WebLogic 12c
- REST-services en JSON support
- ADF Faces – nieuwe en verbeterde componenten
- Implementatie van UI patterns met Oracle ADF 12c
Vanaf 16:30 bent u van harte welkom. Om 17:00 start het seminar. Tussendoor komt ook de beroemde AMIS frietkar nog langs. Reken op veel demonstraties, uitleg en levendige discussies.
We hebben ruimte voor 80 mensen. Bij overschrijving openen we een wachtlijst. Schrijf je daarom hier snel in.
Last week – just when I was at the far end of a narrow internet connection – Oracle released JDeveloper 12c (12.1.2) along with ADF 12c and WebLogic 12c (12.1.2). Hot on the heels of Oracle Database 12c (12.1.2), which was released on June 25th – about two weeks earlier. The next figure gives an overview of recent new releases. It is clear that we are in a turbulent period right now – which also includes Java EE 7 (about a month ago) and the upcoming Java SE 8 release (next month). All in all there will be plenty to talk about at JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld in September.
What is the significance of this ADF and JDeveloper release? What are the important themes and key features? Wow, that is a big question to ask and even more so to answer.
The attraction of APEX has increased tremendously with the recent launch of the Oracle Cloud. APEX already supported departmental development and deployment of business applications with minimal involvement from the IT department (only a database needed be made available). Positioned as the ideal replacement for MS Access, APEX probably has managed better to capture the eye of developers and was used for enterprise application development at least as much as for the kind of tactical applications that Oracle strategically positioned it for.
With APEX as PaaS & DevaaS from the Oracle Cloud, a leap is made to a much higher level of business value. Now the IT department is not even needed to make infrastructure available with a database running on it. All the business needs is a credit card. And the business application that is developed, managed and used from the cloud through a standard browser can now just as easily be accessed by users from around the world as by users from the business department itself. As a bonus – the development of the APEX application is also done in the cloud – with no special demands on the location or the enterprise access privileges of the More >
The show is over, the visitors are on their way home. The process of digesting the announcements, roadmaps and rumors – confirmed or not – can proceed in full swing. What has become of last year’s plans, what are this year’s plans (for next year and beyond) and what has materialized in terms of Oracle’s product portfolio. For everyone, the answers to these questions and the conclusions will be somewhat different – depending on focus, expectations and requirements. However, some conclusions will be shared by most who attended Oracle Open World 2012.
Without a doubt, some of the important themes were and will be: cloud – and at respectable distance – the next generation of database technology (12c) and of engineered systems (Exa… X3-v2), of mobile availability of both standard applications (Fusion Applications and other Oracle Applications products) and custom Portals and applications (through ADF Mobile on iOS and Android)Facts and Opinions
The Facts may seem the easy part – since these are more or less objective – but as soon as interpretation and clarification enter the fray , the absoluteness of the facts is not assured. For example around availability: is the Oracle Cloud More >
Review of Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook (Packt Publishing) by Edwin Biemond, Guido Schmutz, Eric Elzinga et. al.3
Recently I gained access to an electronic copy of the just released Oracle Service Bus 11g Development Cookbook, written by five authors – all experts on OSB and three personal acquaintances of mine. I was very interested in learning about the final result after hearing many intermediate comments during the writing process as well as reading the occasional remark on Twitter. Knowing Guido, Eric and Edwin and assuming the same expert level for the other two authors, I anticipated a very interesting read.
Below I will share my impressions from browsing through this solid 500+ page volume. Note: the homepage for the book can be found here: http://www.packtpub.com/oracle-service-bus-11g-development-cookbook/book .
