First experience – Provisioning the Oracle Container Cloud Service

In December 2015, Oracle acquired the StackEngine, which provided (Docker) container management software and automation (DevOps) capabilities. According to Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StackEngine – “The StackEngine model-based Docker management software provided an integrated DevOps solution for end-to-end container application delivery and operation, all with an integrated GUI dashboard, service discovery, scheduling, and orchestration functions. StackEngine could be deployed into any on-premise, hybrid, public, or private cloud environments and scaled across thousands of hosts enabling users to start in the lab and scale out to full production.”

In November 2016, Oracle announced the general availability of the Oracle Container Cloud Service (OCCS) which had taken the StackEngine capabilities and transformed them into a Cloud Service.

Teaching how DevOps Automate your SOA workload using Oracle Public Cloud

This is a 3-part series blog that teach with plenty of detail how to automate building, assembling, deploying and testing SOA workloads into SOA Cloud Service either using a Local Development Environment or Oracle Developer Cloud Service, which is part of Oracle Public Cloud. The reason I decided to write these as a series of consecutive blogs is to allow a cohesive series of steps to ensure a completely brand new development environment could be fully configured to automate building and deployment of SOA Application.

There are 3 main ways you can build, package, deploy and test your SOA Applications in SOA Cloud Service using Oracle Developer Cloud Service and a series of technologies like Maven, Hudson, Git, Etc.

Teaching How DevOps Can Automate Testing of your SOA Workloads

This blog will teach you how to use Oracle SOA 12 Testing Framework to “Unit test” and “System test” your SOA workloads as part of an automated Continuous Integration approach. This will showing how powerful it is to use the out-of-the box SOA Test framework and automate with Maven the full cycle of a SOA Project, including SOA project cleaning, compiling, packaging, deploying, testing and reporting.

Teaching How to Provision an Oracle Java Cloud Service Environment Using REST APIs

We just covered in previous blogs how to provision environments with components such as: Database Cloud Service, Java Cloud Service, SOA Cloud Service (SOA, OSB, SOA & OSB, API Manager), etc. via the various Cloud Services Console web pages.

In this section I am going to demonstrate how to provision the same type of environments, this time a Java CS environment using REST APIs. REST APIs are very well documented for the vast portfolio of Oracle Cloud Services. For more information refer to http://docs.oracle.com/cloud

Notice that being able to script, version and test the creation of environments via REST APIs, can facilitate the life cycle of not only software, but also environments, which is a crucial aspect in devops.

Teaching how to run ICS APIs from a DevOps perspective

In this blog I am going to show you how to interact with ICS system APIs, in order to simplify the deployment of ICS Integrations being stored and retrieved out of version control repositories (e.g. Git). This can be applied as a Continuous Integration or Continuous Delivery task, removing with this, manual interventions to export, import, configure connectors, activate integrations, run tests, etc.

I am going to be running these APIs via CURL commands and JSON objects, so that these commands can be easily ported into shell scripts, perhaps part of a CI/CD step using Hudson or Jenkins, for example.
