Oracle: Load-Balancing EBS 12.2 Environments

You can use load-balancing routers (LBR) to protect your E-Business Suite 12.2 environment from system failures.  Load-balancers increase your environment's fault-tolerance and scalability by distributing load across a pool of servers. 

HTTP Layer Load-Balancing
HTTP Layer load-balancing is the most common method used in E-Business Suite environments. In this configuration, end-users navigate to a specific Web Entry Point that represents your E-Business Suite's domain name.  An HTTP Layer load-balancer routes all subsequent traffic for a specific user to a specific Web Node.
EBS LBR Architecture
HTTP Layer load-balancers may use heartbeat checks for node death detection and restart, and sophisticated algorithms for load-balancing.

DNS-Based Load-Balancing

When an end-user's browser attempts to access your E-Business Suite environment, your local Domain Name Server (DNS) can direct that user to a specific application server in a pool based on available capacity:

Traffic for that user's session will be handled by the application server, while other users' traffic may be directed to other application servers in the pool.  Like HTTP layer load-balancers, many DNS-based load-balancers use heartbeat checks against nodes and sophisticated algorithms for load-balancing.
Minimum Requirement:  Session Persistence

Oracle doesn't certify specific load-balancers or networking hardware with the E-Business Suite.  We've designed the E-Business Suite to be able to use load-balancers in general. Our instructions for configuring load-balancers should work for all standards-compliant networking solutions, whether they are hardware or software-based.

The minimum requirement is that a load-balancer support session persistence.  Persistence describes a mode where a client's initial HTTP connection is directed to a particular application server, and then subsequent HTTP requests from that client are directed to the same server.  As long as a load-balancer is able to handle session persistence (also referred to as "stickiness"), it's likely to work with the E-Business Suite.

Other load-balancing variations
EBS 12.2 can be deployed in a number of variations to handle specialized or advanced load-balancing requirements.  For details about implementing the following variations, see:
WLS Clusters: EBS 12.2 uses WebLogic Server.  It is possible to deploy multiple WebLogic Server instances in a cluster to increase scalability and fault-tolerance. A cluster appears to clients to be a single WebLogic Server instance. The server instances that constitute a cluster can run on the same machine, or be located on different machines. You can increase a cluster’s capacity by adding additional server instances to the cluster on an existing machine, or you can add machines to the cluster to host the incremental server instances. Each server instance in a cluster must run the same version of WebLogic Server.
Multiple Web Entry Points:  It is possible to configure the same EBS environment to have multiple web entry points (URLs).  For example, users might be able to access your EBS environment via the following different URLs:
Functional redirection:  It is possible to direct users to specific servers based upon the functional responsibilities that they chose.  For example, manufacturing end-users may be directed to a different pool of servers than, say, HRMS end-users.

Real-Time Integration Business Insight- Business Analytics: Friendly, Powerful, Immediate

We are very excited today to announce the availability of Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight, a new product in our integration portfolio that will dramatically improve the way that business owners generate and consume business analytics!

Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight gives business owners the ability to monitor key metrics of their enterprise in real time using pre-configured dashboards.  A differentiating feature of this product is its ability to extract these metrics even if backing data sources do not contain the raw data in a traditional store, such as a database.

Business users follow a simple three-step process to define, map, and monitor business metrics.
First, a model of the business is created using a simple browser-based designer.  The model defines concepts important to the business, such as milestones, measures, and dimensions.

Second, the model is mapped by an architect to application services and components so that business-level metrics can be extracted during normal business activity.  Architects can select services and components for mapping using simple visualizations of application structure in their browser.
Finally, the model is activated and the collection of metrics begins immediately.  Stakeholders can start tracking metrics using pre-configured dashboards, tables, and reports.  Customized dashboards and reports can also be created that let business owners prioritize metrics that are most important to their success.
Customers are demanding more direct control and customization for end-users of business applications and Oracle Real-Time Integration Business Insight offers the flexibility that business users are looking for.

Building hybrid-mobile apps with Oracle JET and MCS

Taking on board the fact that Oracle JET is capable of producing not just web applications, but Cordova hybrid-mobile applications too, within the Oracle mobile team we're keen to explore how Oracle JET can be extended to Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, to provide all the backend mobile services that mobile apps require.

If you're a regular MCS fan you will know that MCS provides a number of client-side SDKs to make the task of working with MCS easier than writing what can be a huge amount of boiler-plate REST API code depending on the complexity of your mobile app.   The MCS client side SDKs include Android, iOS and Windows SDKs, as well as a JavaScript SDK for web applications and Cordova SDK for hybrid-mobile Cordova platform apps.  These exist to remove much of the bulk REST API code with just a few client side library calls, giving you time to focus on building out a compelling app rather than focusing on what is essentially a plumbing task of calling remote APIs.

It's with these last two SDKs that MCS builds a bridge to Oracle JET.  If you're building an Oracle JET web application, the MCS client-side JavaScript SDK is for you.  If you're building an Oracle JET hybrid-mobile application, the MCS client-side Cordova SDK is for you.

Oracle JET makes use of RequireJS to load 3rd party modules. In terms of integrating the MCS SDKs into an Oracle JET application, you can use RequireJS too.  There are plenty of good tutorials on how to use RequireJS including the excellent public Oracle JET MOOC.  However we would also like to announce a new video on the Oracle Mobile Platform YouTube channel that shows you specifically how to load the MCS SDKs into Oracle JET, entitled Configuring the MCS JavaScript & Cordova SDK on Oracle JET.

To be clear the MCS JavaScript SDK and MCS Cordova SDK are not just for Oracle JET.  You can use them in your own web or Cordova apps. Yet within Oracle we're seeing huge growth with Oracle JET, so we wanted to specifically focus on JET for this video.
Also if you also have time, check out these recent Dzone articles that will introduce you to how to get the Oracle JET tooling up and running for both web and hybrid-mobile app development:
Overall we hope you find this content useful.  Happy mobile JET-setting.

Integration Cloud Service 16.4.1 Fall Release available including free trials for Partners

We are pleased to announce the availability of 16.4.1 - Fall release of Integration Cloud Service (ICS) .
This October release continues to broaden it's connectivity portfolio 

in various segments. These include:
  • Oracle Utilities - New Adapter
  • Oracle Eloqua - Inbound (Trigger) Support
New Oracle Utilities Adapter:

imageA recent survey of 100 North American electric, water and gas utility industry executives completed by Zpryme and Oracle Utilities GBU shows that Utility Companies are embracing the Cloud. With 45% of organizations using the Cloud in some form today and another 52% planning to move to the Cloud. Nearly 97% of interviewees told us they have become involved with Cloud technologies or applications and computing resources delivered as services over a network connection instead of through in-house resources at a utility. This means integration is imperative to all Utility customers without doubt!

This release introduces the new Oracle Utilities adapter taking the list of total adapters closer to 50! This adapter enables you to easily integrate with Oracle Utilities applications that use Oracle Utilities Application Framework v4.3.0.0 or later and supporting Web Services.

For those Utilities Applications using JMS or DB integration services, you can continue to leverage the generic ICS adapters instead.
New Status and Usage APIs:
imageThe brand new /status API is now available that can be queried for system health status (runtime, storage, messaging, and security services). Similarly, the new /usage API returns metrics for system design-time (adapters, agent, application instances, lookups, integrations, packages, and runtime - messages and messaging system). Refer to the REST API documentation for more details.

Support for Service Callbacks:
Starting this release, you can configure outbound SOAP invocations to specify callback ICS flows for asynchronous conversations with external systems/web services.

For example, if you are invoking a credit rating service that responds to you asynchronously (One-Way with Async Call back), you can receive that callback as a delayed response. Remember that the callback flow will be specified within the SOAP adapter design-time as a separate ICS flow.

Inspiration is everywhere if you look for.

YES! Margaret Hamilton, whose handwritten code saved the moon landing in 1969🚀, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom today by Barack Obama at the White House.

Her code helped in prioritising the importance task to perform first. 

She was one of many forgotten and over-looked women in the scientific community, but articles in recent years and social media support have (thankfully) made her name mainstream. She rocked NASA & coined the term "software engineering". 

In first picture she is standing next to the navigation software that she and her MIT team produced for the Apollo project.

Introducing Oracle JET for mobile app development

In March this year Oracle proudly announced that we had open sourced the Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET), targeted at intermediate to advanced JavaScript developers working on client-side applications.  

Since then we’ve released new JET versions every couple of months.  
You can find out more about JET on the website.

Did you realize that you could use JET to develop enterprise mobile apps?

This is made possible through JET's integration with Apache Cordova.  In this post, I’ll describe some of what we’ve added to JET to enable you to use Oracle JET for mobile app development.
But first, I’ll start with an introduction to Apache Cordova.

What is Apache Cordova?

Apache Cordova is an open-source platform that allows you to use standard web technologies (HTML5, JavaScript and CSS) for cross-platform mobile app development. 
That means you can develop one app, using one technology stack and a single code base, for deployment to Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices.

A mobile app built using Cordova is a native mobile app that can be published to app stores and installed onto mobile devices. The application contains an embedded Cordova-enabled WebView, which is essentially a headless browser, and your code runs in the WebView.  Cordova also provides a JavaScript interface to native device APIs, via plugins.  There are 1000s of plugins to choose from and a plugin registry that you can search.

This type of app is called a hybrid mobile app, because it is a hybrid between a native mobile app and web technology. 

How does JET support hybrid mobile app development?

Utilizing the Apache Cordova command-line interface, Oracle JET tooling enables you to scaffold, build and serve JET hybrid mobile apps in exactly the same way as you would a JET web app.
The Oracle JET Yeoman generator has a hybrid sub-generator for scaffolding a hybrid app and supports Android, iOS and Windows platform options, along with the web platform.
The four JET starter templates are provided in both web and hybrid versions, which are optimized for web apps and hybrid mobile apps, respectively. 
Together, this allows you to scaffold a hybrid mobile as follows:
yo oraclejet:hybrid MyMobileApp --platforms=ios,android --template=navdrawer:hybrid
The Oracle JET Grunt tasks also support Android, iOS, Windows and web platform options so you can build and serve hybrid mobile apps to your desired platform. The 'grunt serve' task also supports deployment to different destinations, such as emulator, browser or device.  The following command line gives an example: 
grunt serve --platform=ios --destination=emulator 
Live reload is supported when your hybrid mobile app is deployed to a browser or emulator. This means you can modify your app’s source code and see the changes update in the deployed app instantaneously, saving you a long redeployment cycle.

Can I develop a web app and hybrid mobile app with the same code base? 

Oracle JET tooling enables you to take a “mobile first” approach to your web app design, based on a mobile-optimized template, then use the same source code to create your installable mobile app.  This is achieved by first scaffolding and developing a mobile web app with a hybrid starter template, then adding a hybrid target:
yo oraclejet MyApp --template=navdrawer:hybrid yo oraclejet:add-hybrid --platforms=ios,android
The scaffolded project contains separate src, src-web and src-hybrid folders, so that you can override any file within your source code to provide different web or hybrid functionality, as desired. 

What does a JET hybrid mobile app look like?

Along with Oracle’s Alta theme for web apps, JET also supports Oracle’s Alta mobile themes for Android, iOS and Windows, which closely match the native look & feel on each supported mobile platform.
The Oracle JET Cookbook enables you to view JET components and patterns in each of the available themes and sized for different form factors, such as phone, tablet or desktop.
Should you wish to develop your own custom theme and use this instead, the JET tooling facilitates this via SASS:
yo oraclejet:add-sass yo oraceljet:add-theme --theme=MyTheme grunt serve --platform=ios --theme=MyTheme

Is there a sample app that shows me how to do all this? 

The Oracle JET development team has provided a sample app called FixItFast that was developed specifically to demonstrate how to develop a JET hybrid mobile app.  It also demonstrates a number of mobile UX patterns and shows how to communicate with an Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) mobile backend.
You can find a live demo of the FixItFast web app here and instructions for how to scaffold, configure, build and serve it as a web or hybrid mobile app here

Where can I learn more about mobile app development with JET?

You can find videos about Oracle JET, including mobile app development, on the Oracle JET YouTube channel
In addition, the Oracle Mobile Product Management team have published a number of articles in Dzone, describing how to start out with the Oracle JET tooling for web and hybrid mobile development:
Following soon will be videos on how to integrate the Oracle Mobile Cloud Service JavaScript and Cordova SDKs into Oracle JET, watch this blog for an update!

In conclusion

Oracle JET supports hybrid mobile app development via enhanced tooling that supports the Android, iOS and Windows 10 mobile platforms, mobile-optimized starter templates, mobile-specific UI themes and mobile-specific patterns presented in the JET cookbook. 
For more information about hybrid mobile app development with Oracle JET, refer to the Oracle JET Developers Guide.
