Teaching How DevOps can Locally Automate your SOA Workloads Deploying into SOA Cloud Service

This is a 3-part series blog that teaches 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 this 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.

Configure Oracle SQLDeveloper SSH connection to Oracle Public Cloud Database

Oracle SQLDeveloper SSH Configuration

Challenge


After provisioning an Oracle SOA Cloud Service and its related Oracle Database 12c Pluggable Database Cloud Service Instance, I then needed to connect to the Database in the Oracle Public Cloud in order to run some scripts for my demo tables. Obviously mixing customer data into the SOA Meta Data-Store (MDS) Database is not best practice but it was fine for my demo purposes.

In order to run the SQL scripts I had I was presented with a couple of choices (at least).

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 Build an Oracle Process Cloud Service to send Notifications

Recently I had to build a Human Workflow that sent SMS and Voice notifications using Oracle Process Cloud Services. The notifications are based on Twilio APIs exposed in Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) and Oracle Application Container Cloud Service (ACCS). After 10 minutes I was done. I was amazed how quickly I managed to create this Business Process using Oracle Platform as a Service (PaaS), so I decided to blog it to show others who are in similar situations.

The diagram below is a quick snapshot of what I will be covering in this blog:
