    Today I spent some time with Oracle colleagues in presenting Oracle JET to a company in the Netherlands. The company was using a technology stack that included a front-end technology that needs to be modernized for various reasons and Oracle JET was presented to them as the way to bring the front-end of an application into the modern world of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

    Of course, many small demos were done to make the key points of the benefits of Oracle JET. And those demos were all done in NetBeans IDE, with the great Oracle JET Support plugin!

    Does your company want to modernize web front-ends? Take a look at Oracle JET, it's all open source and free, and available at We're doing company presentations on Oracle JET all over the world, if you're interested, let me know!

    I met with Cojan van Ballegooijen who is involved with the Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization project. Read about that here:

    I'm interested in setting up a scenario where Oracle JET could provide a dashboard on top of a VDB (virtual database).

    Here's the steps we took to get started.

    1. We started by downloading the 6.3.0 Beta of JBoss Data Virtualization:

    2. After running "java -jar" on the JAR downloaded above, we had installed the product and had a folder named "EAP-6.4.0".

    3. In the folder "quickstarts/dynamicvdb-datafederation", there's a folder "src/teiidfiles", which we copied into the root, i.e., into the "EAP-6.4.0" folder.

    4. In the folder "standalone/configuration", there's a file named "standalone.xml", where we tweaked the reference to "jboss.dir" so that it pointed to the hardcoded location of the EAP-6.4.0 folder, i.e., there was a problem with slash escaping on Windows of the "jboss.dir" reference and to workaround that we hardcoded the path, for the data source with the jndi-name "java:/accounts-ds".

    5. Then we ran "bin/standalone.bat", the process started, the "teiidfiles" were loaded, and at this location we saw the JSON payload: http://localhost:8080/odata4/Portfolio/Accounts/CUSTOMER?$format=json

    OK, great, we have the JSON, which provided the data from the VBD. Once we have JSON, the step to an Oracle JET dashboard is trivial, since Oracle JET has all kinds of hooks for working with JSON.

    However, there's one stumbling block at this point and that is that authentication is needed for accessing our data. It seems that Keycloak is needed in this scenario:

    That's the next step. Once that's done, then we have here a nice scenario for creating user interfaces on top of virtual databases created via JBoss Data Virtualization.

  • 07/22/16--01:56: OAuth and Oracle JET
  • OAuth is an open protocol to allow secure authorization in a simple and standard method from web, mobile, and desktop applications. Oracle JET includes OAuth and there is documentation for the combination in the Oracle JET Developer Guide, in a chapter named Using oj.OAuth in Your Oracle JET Application.

    In your "define" block, you need to include "ojs/ojmodel", since that's where the OAuth class is provided. The OAuth class provides the methods you can use to initialize the oj.OAuth object, verify initialization, and calculate the authorization header based on client credentials or access token.

    Once you have included "ojs/model", you initialize "oj.OAuth", as described in the chapter, e.g.:

    self.myOAuth = new oj.OAuth('X-Authorization');

    When you use the Oracle JET Common Model, you'll find the "oj.Collection.extend" enables you to reference your "oj.OAuth" object. Also see the related JavaScript documentation:

    Here's all the code for a real "define" block that includes OAuth for working with Twitter. Take note of the bits in bold below, which are the statements relating to OAuth:

        function (oj, ko, $) {
            function HeaderViewModel() {
                var self = this;
                self.TweetCol = ko.observable();
                self.datasource = ko.observable();
                self.serviceURL = '';
                self.myOAuth = new oj.OAuth('X-Authorization');
                self.parseTweet = function (response) {
                    return {
                        id_str: response['id_str'],
                        text: response['text'],
                        userName: response['user']['name']
                var Tweet = oj.Model.extend({
                    urlRoot: self.serviceURL,
                    parse: self.parseTweet,
                    idAttribute: 'id_str'
                var myTweet = new Tweet();
                var TweetCollection = oj.Collection.extend({
                    url: self.serviceURL + '?q=NetBeans',
                    model: myTweet,
                    oauth: self.myOAuth
                self.getData = function () {
                    self.TweetCol(new TweetCollection());
                        success: function () {
                                new oj.CollectionTableDataSource(self.TweetCol())
                        error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
                            console.log('Error in fetch: ' + textStatus);
            return new HeaderViewModel();

    In "main.js", the "credentials.js" file is loaded:

    var prop;
        url: 'js/credentials.json',
        dataType: 'json',
        async: false,
        success: function (data) {
            sessionStorage.setItem('credentials', JSON.stringify(data));
        error: function (req, status, err) {
            console.log('something went wrong', status, err);

    The "credentials.js" file has this content:

        "client_id": "blabla",
        "client_secret": "blabla",
        "bearer_url": "",
        "access_token": "blabla"

    Above, Codebird is used. Codebird is a library that is commonly used to manage OAuth2 connections to Twitter. And, instead of setting up your own code, you can use Codebird's proxy service.

    In the "define" block above, notice the "self.getData" at the end, which ties everything together, and is called from the view:

    <button data-bind="click: getData, 
                       ojComponent: { 
                           component: 'ojButton', 
                           label: 'Get Data'}">Get Data</button>
        data-bind="ojComponent: {
                component: 'ojTable', 
                data: datasource,
    	    columnsDefault: {headerStyle: 'text-align: left; white-space:nowrap;'}, 
                   {headerText: 'User ', field: 'userName'},
                   {headerText: 'Text', field: 'text'}

    That's it. A complete sample scenario that uses OAuth with Oracle JET.

      In my "bower.json" file, I have a dependency set like this:

      "codebird-js": "2.6.0"

      That enables Codebird to be installed.

      Next, I went to and created a new application, so that I now have a Consumer Key (API Key) and a Consumer Secret (API Secret).

      <script type="text/javascript">
          var cb = new Codebird;
                  function (response) {
                      var statuses = response.statuses;
                      for (var i = 0; i  
                  }, true);

      The point of this blog entry is really to come to a point where you can see how to parse Twitter. Above, in bold, is the code needed for that. Printed out into the console you'll now see names/texts of those who have tweeted about NetBeans.

      clip_image001With businesses adopting more and more cloud applications, mobile apps, and devices, integration has never been more important. Integrating these apps and tools with the rest of the systems is the key to a connected enterprise— one that supports real-time responsiveness, instant collaboration, and streamlined innovation. To keep up with these new integration demands, a new breed of solution has emerged—cloud-based integration platforms (also called integration platform as a service, or iPaaS for short). For businesses looking to gain all of the benefits of a connected enterprise, while also simplifying administration and accelerating time to market, they’re a game-changer. They’re fueling a hybrid approach to integration—one that combines on-premises integration with iPaaS

      to respond to business requirements faster—but that’s just the start. Read on and discover five key ways cloud-based integration platforms are transforming the way organizations integrate, making innovation simpler than ever before. Get the whitepaper here.
