start with a few questions. How many applications do you have on
your smartphone? Which one do you use the most? On average, based
on current surveys , Americans spend more than five hours a day
on their phones. Their top two apps are Facebook and Instagram. I
have more than 100 apps on my phone, and my most used ones are
instant messenger apps, such as Whatsapp, which seems to be the
top messaging app for users worldwide .
can be displayed using the System.List, System.CommonResponse and
SystemResolveEntities component in Oracle Digital Assistant. A
challenge for developers that is addressed in this article is how
to sort entity derived lists. Lets use a simple example in which an
entity is defined that contains "Yes" and
"No" as a value. By default, the sorting of the list
values is ascending, which means that the list of "Yes"
and "No" values will be displayed with the "No"
option first. This order doesn't change if you provide the
"Yes" value option first when defining the entity.
GURU - A
cutting-edge Digital Assistant designed to enhance and elevate
student experience for Campus Solutions applications. GURU is a Chatbot exclusively designed
for Students to enhance interaction with the PS Campus Solutions
application. Essentially, it works as a student self-service app
by effectively simulating human conversation, which, in turn,
improves student experience, resulting in increased enrollment.
Some of the key business drivers for Chatbot adoption are the
need for an elevated instant response to queries with quicker
resolution of complaints, and detailed answers to complex
questions - in the end, all leading to a satisfying customer
when working with custom components or webviews (also known as
Instant Apps), you may need to add external system
configurations, such as server URLs, tokens, Oracle Identity
Cloud service, Oracle Digital Assistant instance URL, and more. Of course, you can directly set these
dependencies in the dialog flow (BotML) when defining the dialog
flow state that references a custom component or webview.
However, this has an impact to reuse of skills, and certainly
would not follow best practices. As an example, when cloning a
skill or when loading a skill from the skill store (a Fusion App
feature only at current), you would need to be aware of and know
how to find the code lines to change in the BotML code.
recent Oracle TechExchange article, Upload Documents in an Oracle
Digital Assistant Conversation with Messengers like Facebook or

In this article I now explain the opposite, which is how to
download of documents like audio, video, image and document files
within a bot conversation. Basically, to download documents in
Oracle Digital Assistant conversations, you have three implementation

Assistant select components and that is followed when users enter
free text instead of selecting a value from a choice. For example, in a retail bot, if the user
is prompted to select the size of a shirt to buy and the user
instead types "I like to buy a pair of shorts", then
the textReceived action would allow the bot designer to stop the
current conversation flow and navigate to a System.Intent
component state to discover the new intent and extract the new
Builder has built in lifecycle for applications that supports
hosting the development, test, and production instances of an app
on a single server. But many companies prefer to separate their
dev instances from their production instances - this allows them
to separate the users accessing each instance, separate the
backends that they are accessing, and guarantee that there is no
development load on the production server. If that is the
approach taken, you'll need to promote the app from the
development VB instance to the production VB instance, and also
take care of subsequent changes to the app.
article, I’m going to show a beautiful use case which I encounter
in my project. In this article, I’ll show how to call OIC REST
service from VBCS. Some useful links Basics of Oracle Visual Builder Cloud
Services Create a simple web application: Visual

below use case: • Create an OIC REST service which
accepts the file, JSON payload(First Name, Last Name) as input
parameters and returns the JSON response(Greeting) • Create Service connection in VBCS

have text box (First Name, Last Name), file picker and Submit
Oracle JET Model/Collection structure to render table, you should
be careful defining ID attribute. This attribute must have unique
values only, if there will be duplicates in ID, then table rows
will be rendered incorrectly. Take as example below structure for
Employees REST endpoint. EmployeId attribute provides unique
values and it should be defined as ID for JET model:
app runs in a single thread. This means if there is a
long-running resource-intensive operation - the thread will be
blocked and the page will stay frozen until operation completes.
Obviously, this is not user-friendly and such behavior should be
avoided. We can use Web Workers, through Web Workers we could run
long-running operations in separate threads, without blocking the

HTML. In previous Oracle JET versions, we were using $root to
access parent appController module. Syntax $root looks a bit like
magic, it is better to reference module through a predefined
variable. I will show you how.
interesting question came up in the JDeveloper & ADF ODC
space. A user asked how to display a button which shows a long
text in multiple lines. The image above shows an af:button with a
longer text. If you don’t have enough space in your layout to
show such a long text in a button, you can shorten the Text. If
this is not a acceptable, one solution is to break the long text
into multiple lines. Think about an af:panelSplitter which should
show the same button. but the space i for the left pane in the splitter
s limited. The result will be that the text of the button can’t
be read. In other layouts the button might overflow the given
space. his can crumble your whole page layout.
pleased to announce an exciting new Oracle Forms 12c (126.96.36.199)

Linux 7 and is a ready-to-run image that allows you to rapidly
provision an Oracle Forms environment in OCI. By deploying the
Oracle Forms image in OCI, you can dramatically reduce the time
and cost to develop, test, and deploy Oracle Forms applications. In just minutes you can have an Oracle
Forms 12c environment up and running, ready to receive your
application or create a new one.
We're pleased to announce the
general availability in all commercial regions of Oracle
Functions, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s functions-as-a-service
(FaaS) platform. Oracle Functions makes it easy to build cloud
native applications by letting developers focus on writing code
rather than managing infrastructure. With Oracle Functions, you
simply write, deploy, and call your function. There are no servers
to provision, monitor, or upgrade—it’s serverless! Functions—What Are They Good For?
The general availability (GA) of
Oracle Functions and Events on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure begins
a new generation of simplification and openness for cloud users
and developers. Oracle Functions is a managed
functions-as-a-service (FaaS) cloud service based on the open
source Fn Project, and it provides a fully managed serverless
platform for Oracle Cloud users. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Events is a managed event-routing platform based on the Cloud
Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open CloudEvents standard.
With it, cloud users subscribe to changes and automatically react
to them using a variety of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services.
Oracle Functions and Events work together to provide an
event-driven serverless platform for cloud native application
In my last few posts we took a
look at how to create serverless functions which interact with an
Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) instance - first with
Java, then with Node. We invoked those functions using the Fn
CLI, which was handy for testing, but obviously not so helpful
when it comes to integrating these functions into our
microservice applications. There are in fact several ways to
invoke Oracle Functions, but in this post we'll focus on calling
them via the OCI Java SDK.
I've covered quite a few different
topics related to Oracle Functions recently on this blog, but
today I'll cover what probably should have been the first post in
this series. In my previous posts, I showed you how to set
configuration variables for your applications and functions, but
I have yet to show you how to keep those variables secure. In
this post, we'll look at using Key Management in your Oracle
Cloud tenancy to encrypt and decrypt your configuration to do
We are pleased to announce the
1.2.0 release of Helidon. This release adds support for
MicroProfile 2.2 and includes additional bug and performance
fixes. Let’s take a closer look at what’s in the release. MicroProfile MicroProfile is now a de-facto standard for
Java cloud-native APIs. One of the main goals of project Helidon
is to deliver support for the latest MicroProfile APIs. The
Helidon MicroProfile implementation is called Helidon MP and
along with the reactive, non-blocking framework called Helidon SE
it builds the core of Helidon.

GraalVM Native Image tool
rightfully attracts a lot of attention as it offers significant
improvements in terms of startup speed and overall memory usage.
However, if you create some benchmarks to evaluate peak
performance you may observe that the native image sometimes
doesn’t offer better throughput too.
