Some of our associates had the pleasure of attending the Summer Camps organized by Jürgen Kress in Lisboa. A bit thanks for the excellent organization of the event and allowing us to participate. And also congratulations for all the speakers for their amazing work.
Below are some of the highlights of the tracks they attended.
Weblogic 12c – Valentín Borrego
New features and improvements around the 12c version, including domain partition, resource groups, and virtual targets. The availability of these features will allow us in the future to maximize the utilization of the domains and distribute resources accordingly for each application. Last but not least, the labs practices around zero downtime patching were very useful.
Integration Cloud Service (ICS) – Manuel Alvarez Vicente
The main goal for ICS is to simplify the way we build integrations in the cloud, allowing the connection between Cloud and on-premise applications and services. In this track we reviewed the tools to manage the life-cycle, for monitoring and error management, as well as learning about the Adapter SDK to build our own adapters. We've also explored service orchestations, which allows to perform validations and enrichment of data fetched from different backends.
Process & Document Cloud Service (PCS, DCS) – Pablo Montalvo González
In this track we have reviewed both Process and Document Cloud services as well as integration through ICS. I was particularly happy to see DCS as it brings the power of DMS without its complexity. From PCS I liked Task Collaboration feature a lot, along with the Dashboards and the current support for Mobile devices. We’ve also reviewed the REST APIs which are fundamental for building solutions.
Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) – Jesús Mari Saso
In this track we reviewed the different technologies that allow connectivity with cloud services and its integration with mobile devices. One of the items reviewed was the Aura Player, which is a solution that allows modernization of Oracle Forms. We reviewed how MCS helps build APIs for mobile devices with backend service composition and protection of back-end channels. MAX was also presented and we had to build an app using it along with an API created in MCS.
Internet of Things (IoTCS) – Daniel Biedma
The IoT Cloud Service we tested during this track was version 16.3.3, which adds the ability to analyze data from the various devices and provides fixes to various issues. In this track we learned how to use the IoTCS REST APIs to define and register models, as well as managing the life-cycle of devices. We were able to stream data and trigger alarms based on the data received. Last but not least, I feel I would have liked more in-depth knowledge around analytics using Apache Spark, which seems to be quite promising.
