    On Monday evening, we released Oracle Linux 6.8 to the Unbreakable Linux Network.  This release is the first ISO to incorporate Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 4 (Quarterly Update 1) and includes several improvements and features.  You can download this update from or from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.  For more information regarding the release or for details on how to update your system, please review the release notes located here.

     This is a great time to remind users of the channel features available with Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN).  Here are a few tips:

    1. If you are subscribed to the _LATEST channel, you will receive all the latest updates, including update releases like Oracle Linux 6.8.  This ensures your system is always up to date with not only the latest update release but also critical bug and security errata.
    2. For more control over patches and updates, you can also subscribe to the _BASE and _PATCH channel for your respective release.  These channel stays locked to a given minor release.  For example, if you have standardized on Oracle Linux 6.7 across your data center and only want updates released during the 6.7 maintenance window - subscribe to these channels.  Once you are ready to move to Oracle Linux 6.8, simply subscribe to the 6.8 _BASE & _PATCH channels.  Keep in mind, once a later update release is available, all errata updates will move to the latest channel.  It is always recommended users stay up to date on errata to ensure systems remain secure.  For more information about ULN please refer to the ULN User Guide.
    3. Finally, remember if you are an Oracle Linux Premier Support customer you also have access to zero-downtime patching with Ksplice.  For more information, please review the Ksplice User guide.

    Please send us your comments and feedback.

    In the Project Jigsaw: Module System Quick-Start Guide, a section is included on Services. Idioms such as "service consumer" and "service provider" are part of the set of solutions provided by Project Jigsaw.

    A full code sample is discussed in the section above, which I have successfully implemented in NetBeans IDE. Three Jigsaw modules make up the scenario—a service defined in "com.socket", a service provider defined in "org.fastsocket", and a service consumer defined in "com.greetings". 

    Read this document, about the fact that "'module', 'requires', 'exports', 'to', 'uses', 'provides', and 'with' are restricted keywords", which are used in the ways described in that document in the "" files below.

    1. Service (com.socket). Below, you see "NetworkSocketProvider", which is a pluggable API, accessed via "ServiceLoader.load" in "NetworkSocket". 

      The "" above is as follows:

      module com.socket {
          exports com.socket;
          exports com.socket.spi;
          uses com.socket.spi.NetworkSocketProvider;
    2. Service Provider (org.fastsocket). Below, you see an implementation of "com.socket.spi.NetworkSocketProvider" and notice that no packages are exported here.

      The "" above is as follows:

      module org.fastsocket {
          requires com.socket;
          provides com.socket.spi.NetworkSocketProvider 
                  with org.fastsocket.FastNetworkSocketProvider;
    3. Service Consumer (com.greetings). Below, you see a service consumer, which needs to have the other two modules on its module classpath (while it still has "org.astro" available, which applied to an earlier sample). In NetBeans IDE, right now, the Libraries node does not visualize modules on the module path if they do not export any packages, as is the case with "org.fastsocket".

      The "" above is as follows:

      module com.greetings {
          requires org.astro;
          requires com.socket;

    That's it—service provision and consumption natively built into the Java language for Jigsaw modules.

    clip_image001On Monday night we obtained access to the SOA Cloud Service here at Flexagon, where we hope to use it for on-demand capacity.  One of our goals with FlexDeploy is to make it easy to move components from one environment or instance to another, enabling a true “lift-and-shift” into the cloud.  Since the SOA Cloud Service is built on top of the same underlying Oracle infrastructure, configuring it as a FlexDeploy target is a breeze.

    In this blog article, I will cover how to deploy a set of projects that are currently used on-premise into this new SOA Cloud Service.

    Adding a SOA Cloud instance to FlexDeploy

    To deploy our composites we had a few steps to complete:

    · Added the required datasource and outbound connection pool entries

    · Created the SOA partition we deploy to (“order”)

    · Created customization and configuration plans for the new environment

    · Added the new endpoint and instance to FlexDeploy

    · Deployed the composites and OSB components into the SOA Cloud Service instance

    The screen below is the configuration screen for the SOA Cloud instance in FlexDeploy. This one configuration page handles the instance specific configuration. 

    Click image to enlarge.

    As an interesting note, the instance of FlexDeploy above is running on the Java Cloud Service.

    Executing the Deploy

    I have a FlexDeploy application that contains 5 projects I plan to deploy:

    · PackAndShipService (SOA Composite)

    · ProcessOrder (SOA Composite)

    · SBOrderEBS (OSB Project)

    Let's modulerize the Anagram Game using Jigsaw further than we initially did, using the Services idioms that are also part of Jigsaw, discussed in the previous blog entry.

    Here's the use case, i.e., a small Anagram game: 

    The category can be switched via the drop-down: 

    The point of this blog entry is that "Technical" and "Animal" are both made available via service providers, each made available by a different Jigsaw module, "org.wordlibrary.technical" and "org.wordlibrary.animal":

    Each of the service providers serve up an implementation of the same service, "com.wordlibrary", consumed by "com.toy anagrams".

    The point is that the application is now pluggable. Simply introduce onto the module path new Jigsaw modules that implement the service and register them using their "" class, as discussed earlier. It's all very similar to META-INF/services, except that here we're using modules instead of libraries, with all the advantages that modules bring over libraries, in particular the ability to hide the internals of a module from unintended access.

    Pretty cool to have applied all the concepts discussed in the previous blog entry to a real example and it works.

    HCM Atom feeds provide notifications of Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) events and are tightly integrated with REST services. When an event occurs in Oracle Fusion HCM, the corresponding Atom feed is delivered automatically to the Atom server. The feed contains details of the REST resource on which the event occurred. Subscribers who consume these Atom feeds use the REST resources to retrieve additional information about the resource.

    For more information on Atom, please refer to this.

    This post focuses on consuming and processing HCM Atom feeds using Oracle Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Cloud Service. Oracle SOA Cloud Service provides a PaaS computing platform solution for running Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus, and Oracle API Manager in the cloud. For more information on SOA Cloud Service, please refer this.

    Oracle SOA is the industry’s most complete and unified application integration and SOA solution. It transforms complex application integration into agile and re-usable service-based connectivity to speed time to market, respond faster to business requirements, and lower costs.. SOA facilitates the development of enterprise applications as modular business web services that can be easily integrated and reused, creating a truly flexible, adaptable IT infrastructure.

    For more information on getting started with Oracle SOA, please refer this. For developing SOA applications using SOA Suite, please refer this.

    Main Article

    Atom feeds enable you to keep track of any changes made to feed-enabled resources in Oracle HCM Cloud. For any updates that may be of interest for downstream applications, such as new hire, terminations, employee transfers and promotions, Oracle HCM Cloud publishes Atom feeds. Your application will be able to read these feeds and take appropriate action.

    Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub) allows software applications to subscribe to changes that occur on REST resources through published feeds. Updates are published when changes occur to feed-enabled resources in Oracle HCM Cloud. These are the following primary Atom feeds:

    Employee Feeds

    New hire
    Employee update

    Assignment creation, update, and end date

    Work Structures Feeds (Creation, update, and end date)


    The above feeds can be consumed programmatically. In this post, Node.js is implemented as one of the solutions consuming “Employee New Hire” feeds, but design and development is similar for all the supported objects in HCM. Read the complete article here.

    Here's what I'm working on in the context of Jigsaw, which kind of proves the awesomeness of the NetBeans APIs, since this is provided by an external NetBeans module. Take a look at the icons on the packages in the Projects window. Two of them have an unlocked lock icon ("com.wordlibrary" and "com.wordlibrary.spi") while the other two have a locked lock icon. The unlocked lock icons indicate that those packages have been exported via the "" file:

    Yes. Those locked/unlocked icons, and the analysis of the "" file, all that, can be done externally via a NetBeans plugin. That's pretty awesome.

    I recently (last week) participated in JavaCro, a great Java conference in Croatia. I have participated in that event since its inception in 2012. Here are the titles of the keynotes I presented at JavaCro over the years:

    • "Unlocking the Java EE 6 Platfom" (29 - 30 May, 2012, in Tuhalj)
    • "Unlocking the Java EE platform with HTML5" (3 - 5 June, 2013, in Tuhalj)
    • "Consuming Java EE Backends in Desktop, Web, and Mobile Frontends" (12 - 13 May, 2014, in Poreč)
    • "Everything a Java EE Developer needs to know about the JavaScript Landscape" (11 - 12 May, 2015, in Rovinj)
    • "Oracle JET: Enterprise JavaScript for Visualizing Cloud Data" (18 - 20 May, 2016, in Rovinj)

    More clearly than the above, the transition from fullblown Java EE to an increasingly HTML/JavaScript-centric frontend technology is hard to imagine! I think I can predict what my keynote session next year will be focused on—hybrid mobile development with Oracle JET, and related Cloud services, including REST endpoints via Java EE on the backend.

    Now to think of a suitable title—maybe something like "Unlocking Mobile Devices with Oracle Cloud Solutions".

    clip_image002In order to support a more agile project environment, OPITZ CONSULTING developed a Java/JUnit based SOA Unit Testing Framework. Among others, the framework was capable of using the Oracle libraries to run XQuery tests locally and verify their correctness. Over the course of time, Oracle released 12c and with it, changed its xquery files. A new extension (.xqy instead of .xq) was introduced and with it additional syntax. Oracle added a(:: OracleAnnotationVersion "1.0" ::) . After this, the testing framework needed to be updated to support such tags. Without an update, executing a query with the above annotation gave the following error: Read the complete article here.

    Written by Nicole Fornacon, Marketing Director OU EMEA/APAC 

    Being young these days has a lot of perks: from access to evolving technology and free information to borderless labor markets.

    But despite all these opportunities, young people often experience difficulty finding a job after they graduate. Some might even say telling a young person to “just get a job”is like going to the Sahara desert and yelling “just rain!”

    What is Causing this Epidemic Unemployment?

    What can young people do to avoid becoming "Generation Jobless?"

    According to a study conducted by McKinsey & Company, employers are dissatisfied with candidates’ poor skills, calling them "Generation Unprepared."

    Many employers prefer to leave a vacancy open, as they struggle to find candidates with the right skills. The lack of skills is also causing major business problems, in the form of cost, quality, or time.

    So why are young people not developing the skills employers need?

    Your High School Education isn't a Secure Ticket to Employment

    The accelerating pace of technological, demographic and socioeconomic changes is transforming industries and business models, changing the skills employers need and shortening the life of employees’ existing skill sets.

    Current technological trends are creating an unprecedented rate of change in the core curriculum content of many academic fields.

    Nearly 50% of subject knowledge acquired in the first year of a four-year technical degree is outdated by the time students graduate, leading to a growing need for continuous training.

    Meet the Employer's Skills Expectations

    In such a competitive labor market, sometimes having a university degree is not enough to set you apart in the candidate pool. Today’s job markets and in demand skills are very different from those of 10 or even 5 years ago - and the pace is only going to accelerate.

    As a result, it's essential for those who want to get a good job to update their skills through continuous, hands-on training and certification courses.

    Ask yourself this question: if you were given the choice between two different pilots - one took hands-on training and the other did not – but both had the same diploma, which one would you choose? The pilot with more training, of course!

    This is exactly how employers look at hiring candidates. Investing in the right professional training is key to getting the job you want!

    Get Ahead of the Trends - Develop Your Knowledge of the Cloud

    And if the job you want is in the tech industry, Oracle University can help prepare you. 

    Themove to the Cloudis on!

    Industry trends for 2016 revealed a huge demand for both hybrid cloud architecture and skilled staff on this technology. More and more organizations are modernizing their databases and moving them to the Cloud. 

    The Computer and Mathematical job family is going to experience very high growth centered on data analysis and software and applications developers– as a result of the digital transformation every industry is experiencing.

    Our lives are becoming increasingly connected to our devices and other people.

    Smart machines get smarter, the Internet of things will be the great next trend, and a new IT reality must evolve with technology architectures and platforms to support the advancement of a digitally connected world.

    • Computing power and Big Data Analytics will be significant driver of employment growth.
    • Individuals who can process, analyze, visualize and present data will continue to be in demand.
    • If you're passionate about databases and want to develop in demand skills, Oracle Database training courses will empower you in the job market.

    Get your head in the Cloud, fulfill the need for Big Data analysts and get playful with Java to get on the track to professional success.

            Implementing a fully-fledged hypermedia-driven REST API in your Java enterprise application enables more flexibility and resilience. Sebastian Daschner asserts in his new article that many developers claim they are using REST when, in fact, most web APIs are something between "RPC style" and "basic resources with HTTP semantics," except they are built without hypermedia.

            Using real-world examples, he proves his point and shows how to accomplish a main goal of REST: having the server alone be in control of URLs and actively guide the client to the needed resources. Another REST benefit he discusses is having business logic reside only on the server to avoid duplicating the logic on the client. To accomplish that, he explores hypermedia-aware content types, such as Siren, that not only allow you to define links but also so-called actions--to describe how resources are accessed in ways other than by using simple GET calls.

            Building on his examples, Daschner shows how to use the UriInfo component of JAX-RS to programmatically create URIs with information derived directly from JAX-RS classes and to construct the protocol, host, and ports depending on a given HTTP request. Finally, he shows how to use JSONP to programmatically create JSON structures, which enables you to be in full control of how a response can look and what content type is used.

            To see these examples, learn about some important upfront choices, and access more examples he provides on GitHub, read the article.
