“Going to the Cloud” - what does this mean for databases, as well as database administrators?
The main difference between this new way and the previous way: the database storage and memory is not any more located “on premises” (that means locally located at my office or company site.)
The new approach uses a data center as storage location for the creation of a Database as a Service DBaaS, which is also named as Database Cloud Service (DBCS).
Each database also has it’s own shape, which is VM provided, with an eligible number of OCPUs and RAM.
Fig.1 : based on the Cloud Presentation of Jean Francois Verrier
Let’s examine the main components of this architecture to become more familiar with this new Oracle technology.
My intention is to describe only the basic functionalities, which helps guide us through the creation process of a database deployment.
The complete architecture is presented in this video of Jean Francois Verrier.
On the left hand side of Fig.1, there is the Oracle Cloud My Service environment, where I need to have a username like email@example.com and password to connect and moreover a data center and identity domain.
Oracle Cloud Terminology (Oracle Documentation):
|Data center||A facility used to house computer systems and associated components. Oracle provides data centers in various geographical regions. An identity domain and the services associated with that domain must belong to a specific data center.|
|Identity domain||Controls the authentication and authorization of the users who can sign in to an Oracle Cloud service, as well as which features they can access|
How to get such an account?
According to Oracle documentation:
“To register for a trial or purchase a subscription to an Oracle Cloud service, you must have an oracle.com account. If you do not have an oracle.com account, the system prompts you to create an account the first time you attempt to sign up for an Oracle Cloud service.”
The Database Console will be used to create the Database Cloud Service DBCS “Shape” which is a Virtual Machine (VM) containing as basic components the RDBMS Instance plus the File System consisting of mount points where max. 10 volumes can be attached.
The Compute Console positioned in the picture below the Database Console allows after creation of the “Shape” to add more volumes, if needed.
The following table shows the default sizing settings for a database deployment:
|Mount point||Type of data stored||Size (GB)|
|/u03||Fra (Fast Recovery Area)||1.7 x Data|
|/u04||Redo (Redolog Data)||10|
The maximum possible storage equals 2 TB (2048 GB) for the creation process.
After creation, you can add more storage - up to 4.6 TB with local backups or up to 12TB without local backup. This means backups sent to the Storage Cloud Container.
The public key saved inside the shape allows passwordless connect to the shape with the only open port 22 using SSH.
Other ports like 1521 or, for example, 5500 to use EM Express can be opened using the predefined access rules in combination with Security IP lists, which allows to configure something like a firewall.
The Creation Process
The Billing Frequency decision is the next step, but I am relaxed here because for me, it’s just a test case.
Next, I need to choose between the database versions 11gR2 (22.214.171.124) or 12cR1 (126.96.36.199). Standard Edition is only possible in the 11ggR2 version.
Beside Enterprise Edition 12c, Enterprise Edition 12c– high Performance or Enterprise Edition 12c– Extreme Performance is also offered, which includes all database options. So I take this.
All 12c Editions are Container Databases. Oracle Database 12c includes the Oracle Multitenant option for managing Pluggable Databases in the cloud.
Now I have to determine the configuration for the service: My Service_name is MYDBCS, for the shape (predefined pairs of OCPU and RAM) I take the pair : 1 OCPU, 15 GB RAM.
Then I select the correct time zone and now – very important – I need a public key.
I can generate a private / public key pair with e.g. puttygen saving the keys in file mykey.pub for the public key and in file mykey.ppk for the private key.
The easiest way is to copy the public key value from the open puttygen application directly (I am using Windows) and paste the value into the opening window of the database console.
The private key file will later be used to connect passwordless to the Database Cloud Service. Moreover, I provide the database and data file storage size, admin user password, DB name and PDB name. By default, every non-system tablespace is encrypted using TDE.
Regarding the Backup Recovery Configuration: it's easier to choose NONE, but in this case no backup can be created. If I want to run backups of my DBCS, I must first create a Cloud Storage Container.
But before I am able to use the Oracle Storage Cloud Service, I have to select a replication policy for the service instance in case my domain spans multiple data center.
To create the storage container, I use the utility Curl, which is installed on my windows laptop. Oracle Storage Cloud Service requires authentication for any operation against the service instance.
Therefore, I need to get authentication tokens from the service as a first step, using the curl command get provided with my Cloud Services user credentials.
During the second step, these authentication tokens are used as part of the curl command put to create the Cloud Storage Container. There are more possible configurations like creation based on backup, setting character sets, RAC, Data Guard and more options to use.
Now I am ready to start the creation process. The duration depends on the data center resources.
I finally get this:
Using the Cloud technology, I still feel I'm working as a database administrator, but with changing tasks.
The Tools EM Express, SQLPLUS etc. can be used as before. But in any case, the Database Cloud Service (DNCS) concept is really something new. I think it’s important to go on working with the Tool Oracle Cloud My Services to realize all possible features.
It's important to note the Oracle Cloud technology we have experiences very rapid development of new features, which makes it necessary to actualize frequently.

WebADI and Report Manager need a digital certificate to integrate with Microsoft Office. This digital certificate is used to sign the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code.
A new SHA-256 digital certificate is now available for EBS 12.1 and 12.2. This replaces the previous certificate that expired in August 2016.
There are four different updates available -- you should pick the patch that corresponds to your EBS version:
Office 2007 does not recognize documents that have been digitally signed using SHA-256 certificates. In such cases adding the documents storage location to 'Trusted Locations' can be used to avoid this issue. Further information is available through the Microsoft document:

Let's use JShell to learn about Paths and Files and Streams... here we go... this seems to work, since the Output window prints out the content of my file, which has two lines "hello" and "world":
Sweet documentation explains everything:
Next, let's put that useful code snippet to some use... i.e., we'll move it into a new Java source file in my application:
And there it is, all the verbosity/expressiveness of Java wrapped around our little snippet:
Hmmm. This will be pretty useful for anyone teaching and/or learning Java.
On September 6, 2016, Oracle announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire LogFire, a provider of cloud-based warehouse management applications. LogFire's built-for-the-cloud solution provides an integrated warehouse, inventory and workforce management platform that easily scales with increased volume and complexity.
Supply chain organizations are under enormous pressure to capitalize on evolving business trends such as omni-channel fulfillment, integrated logistics and dynamic sourcing, while simultaneously increasing efficiency and reducing costs. To meet these challenges, Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud offers a broad suite of innovative applications that enables organizations to modernize their supply chain processes.
The addition of LogFire will complement the logistics functionality of the Oracle SCM Cloud by adding cloud-based warehouse management capabilities.
In my previous article I discussed the fall updates of Integration Cloud Service. One of the features in this update is the possibility for content-based routing within integrations. I came across this feature during UKOUG Tech 15 in the beginning of December. In an two our hands-on lab I had some time to play with the content-based routing feature. The amazing thing is that it did it all on my iPad. In this article I will describe the feature and the steps to implement a common use-case.
What does Content-Based Routing mean?
The fall updates introduced content-based routing, which essentially mean that based on a value in the payload a different flow is executed. A use-case for this type of routing is the possibility to retrieve data from a different application based on the country code. With Integration Cloud Service is as easy as adding a filter on the request operation of the source connection.
Step 1: Adding a filter to route on
The first step is adding a filter to route the request on. To demonstrate this I’m using an already existing integration. This integration receives a GET request for retrieving the information of an organization. The current integration always retrieves the organization from the US site.
To add a filter a user would click on the funnel
icon. Clicking on this icon will open the Expression Builder. In the
Expression Builder a user can set an expression to filter requests on.
This can simply be done by drag n drop the field to filter on. Read the complete article here.

In addition to the generic JShell integration in NetBeans, discussed yesterday, there's more finegrained support enabling project-specific JShell snippets to be run.
Each project, whether Maven-based or Ant-based, will have an "Execute Java Shell" menu item, which is shown below. When that menu item is clicked, a new VM is created, which has access to the project's path, including project-specific JShell snippets, as discussed below.
Below you see a folder "nbproject/private/jshell-snippets", which contains JShell snippets that I know will be handy for experimenting with in the context of my project:
Also, note that there's a folder called "startup", within "jshell-snippets", above. Anything in there will be executed automatically when the project-specific JShell starts up. In the case of Maven, you'll set a property in your POM, "org.netbeans.jshell.snippetsRoot", which points to a folder in which your snippets, including the optional "startup" folder, are found.
Once the project-specific JShell has started, there's a small drop-down that shows an item for each of the JShell snippets, which can be run by clicking on them:
Alternatively, you can do a Run/Debug project and then Run | Open Java Shell for Main Project, which connects to the VM where the project is run/debugged. The difference is the startup procedure. "Execute Java Shell" only starts the machine and waits for interaction from JShell, while "Open Java Shell" works with an existing process which starts as a regular application.
Hyperscale public clouds are at the center of attention in the tech industry, and rightfully so, as they are the new normal for deploying many system-of-record applications – the lifeblood of enterprises.
However, there are a multitude of applications that aren’t necessarily suitable for centralized hyperscale cloud deployment. Instead, these applications thrive in distributed computing environments.
Robert Shimp, group vice president of Linux and Virtualization Product Management, discusses systems of engagement and systems of control and why you need to consider a cloud infrastructure that extends closer to the edge to deliver on the needs of a real-time enterprise.

Written by Nicole Fornacon, Marketing Director, EMEA/APAC, Oracle University
It's the 2020s. You've commuted to the office in your titanium flying car, to be greeted by a robotic receptionist. You’ve traveled to your virtual, interactive desk which serves you a tall coffee and scans the morning's to-do list onto your retina.
Or maybe not.
Just as we're still waiting for the paperless office to arrive, the workplace of the foreseeable future will probably still be an open-space, with a wood or metal desk, as well as human colleagues.
But according to futurists, and human resource specialists, there's a strong chance that in 5 years' time, your job will be very, very different.
So, what better time than now to figure out how the IT industry is changing and what kind of growth each role is destined to experience? Let's examine how the Cloud is changing the way IT departments work.
A few years from now, staff and managers will need to adapt to a cloud-driven environment.
Next Stop: the Cloud
The IT train is traveling at high speed towards the next big station: the Cloud.
If you haven’t already jumped in, you still have some time left. But hurry, things are going to change quickly within the next 5 years.
The pace of change can be dizzying!
Keeping up with everything emerging in IT today can drive even the most devoted tech worker to distraction.
But IT professionals who don't take the time to lift their heads from the PC and evaluate the IT landscape may be asking for career trouble 5 years out.
Because one fact is clear: organizations of all stripes are increasingly moving IT infrastructure to the Cloud.
Cutting the Wires
When you step off the elevator at the office or data center five years from now, what will you see?
Fewer servers and fewer co-workers, most likely. Maintaining on-premises data centers is a costly effort, much more so than connecting to the Cloud.
If the current trend toward moving infrastructure to the Cloud is any indication, organizations that haven't already done so will carefully consider those expenses - and many will ultimately decide to trim them over the next five years.
The Evolution of IT Skills
Ten years ago, if IT staff were plugging special cables into special switches, today we are facing a completely different scenario. Cables and switches are replaced by virtual storage volumes across the network, while applications that do their own storage allocation via APIs.
The future is about:
IT Professionals as Strategic Planners & Business Analysts
Instead, IT professionals can spend more time as strategic planners and business analysts who ensure their organizations are structured appropriately to support cloud-based office communications.
The need for server/storage engineers, systems
administrators, or data center managers will decrease.
The result will be a fundamental shift in IT's overarching mission at most organizations, with the support-and-maintain mind-set giving way to a more strategic, software-centric vision for IT.
The IT staff of the future is likely to need the skills of a business-person to stay current, as their company's software requirements and the options for satisfying them will be deep, varied, and changing quickly.
IT Roles in Flux
At this point, you must be asking yourself: as the Cloud continues to gain terrain, will companies need a fully staffed IT department?
As you may have guessed, only few believe the IT department will disappear. Companies will still require talented staff who can, at the very least, manage systems integration.
But an IT department five years from now will need to keep pace with nearly constant change and the main switch will be towards a strategic mindset.
IT will no longer be the people who try to manage the database; they'll be the people who are thinking of new ways to monetize, share, and use data for organization-wide success.
As more workloads shift to the Cloud, the construction of the IT department, by necessity, must change away from traditional roles to those more focused on vendor, business, security, and service management.
The more complex and interconnected the cloud environments become, the higher amount of a general understanding and knowledge of how it all works together will be required from IT teams. The days of simple technology verticals are over.
If you want to build it, maintain it, or fix it, you have to be able to see and understand how it all connects together.
Projecting the Future
Some experts see the Cloud benefiting the IT department by paving the way for staffers to expand their roles, doing more development work, coding, tying systems together, and creating flexible applications that resemble platforms.
Also, in the years to come, everyone in the IT industry will experience a rising need for security skills, due to IT’s expanding role in development and automation projects.
Changes will occur not only within the roles, but also surrounding the structure of the IT departments. In five years, they'll look more like miniature software companies, with staff dedicated to solving their customers' problems. IT departments will be more fluid, solving co-workers' problems with an architecture that's adaptable to changing requirements.
Position Yourself for Long-Term Growth
Smart companies have corporate road maps that spell out where they'd like to be 3, 5 and 10 years out, how they're going to get there, and how technology fits into that vision.
As a smart IT professional, can you say how your skills and position figure into your company's plans, or the industry's plan as a whole?
Everything is moving to the Cloud.
There has never been a better time to invest in yourself and to train for the Cloud.

In the last few months I mentioned that Oracle is developing an Agent. The Agent easily integrates your on-premises application(s) with the Oracle Cloud Services. The Agent is rolling out on all production instances next week. It was publicly announced by Bruce Tierney on the 3rd of January. He is the Director of Product Marketing for Cloud Integration and SOA. You can read his announcement on the Oracle Integration blog.
In this first article about the Agent I will go into the architectural basics, which components are included and how it will connect Cloud to On-premises applications. The article is based on information I presented about during OpenWorld 2015.
Current / classic integration approach
The current approach for connecting Cloud / Internet hosted applications with On-premises applications is usually through one or more firewalls, and the use of a reverse proxy, Oracle API Gateway or OHS. For this a variety of expertise is needed for example to open up inbound ports in the firewall, expose a private SOAP/REST service and configure the network routing. The SOAP/REST service can for example be implemented with SOA Suite to for example communicate with the CRM to retrieve customer data.
Let look at the current / classic approach in the diagram below:
This is going to change a lot when using the Agent. It will simplify above diagram.
Common Cloud to On-Premises Integration Patterns
there are three common patterns for Cloud to On-Premises integrations.
They are 1. using messaging, 2. through a proxy and 3. using an agent. Read the complete article here.
