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.

Teaching how to run VirtualBox VM in a new Oracle IaaS Environment

This section shows you how to use Oracle IaaS in order to create a new OEL environment. For this, it is assumed that you already have access to Oracle IaaS, if not, either go to cloud.oracle.com and request a trial account or contact your local Oracle representative directly.

Oracle VirtualBox allows running a machine image on a virtualisation layer. Given Oracle IaaS is itself a virtualisation layer (Xen based) you cannot simply install VirtualBox on an Oracle IaaS VM and upload your VirtualBox VMs. That won’t work, as you cannot run VirtualBox on top of a Xen based virtualisation.

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.
