Network Channels with Java Cloud + SOA Cloud has become a little easier

The cloud services are rapidly changing and are becoming easier all the time. This blog is an example of that.

One of the things that has changed is the network configuration of Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle SOA Cloud Service. It’s been a common task to create communication channels with these services to administer the environments. So that means creating specific security rules and typically it is a usual practice of creating different ports specific for the administration network traffic. Now, this already been done for you.

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 Configure JDeveloper to deploy into SOACS

Creating an Application Server connection in JDeveloper to any SOACS environment is slightly different than doing it against a traditional WebLogic and SOA environment. The main difference is that the SOA CS environment is governed by Oracle Compute Cloud Service (IaaS), which by default establishes a few network restrictions.

There are multiple ways to open access from SOACS Compute Cloud Service to allow connectivity from JDeveloper, but in this document we have mentioned what we believe it is the easiest and less intrusive way. If this approach is not applicable to your situation, feel free to contact and discuss other ways with the owners of this document.
