    Hello Oracle Cloud User,

    Major releases are the primary vehicle for delivering new product functionality to the Cloud Applications fleet. In addition, the fleet receives a monthly update. As you would expect, monthly updates address product issues discovered mid-release. But, they can also serve as a vehicle for communicating new functionality delivered off-cycle via monthly updates.

    Specifically, this communication describes new SaaS functionality added in the last 30 days and it only includes product areas that had changes.

    Your Action:  If you are live or implementing one of the product areas below, check out the associated content to learn about the recent changes. The Revision History section at the beginning of each document will serve as your pointer.

    Fusion Applications Release 11 

    Human Capital Management

    Customer Experience

    FA Release 10 & Additional SaaS Product Lines  

    Enterprise Resource Planning

    Human Capital Management

    Talent Management

     Enterprise Performance Management

          While implementing an Oracle Process Cloud Service PoC we had the requirement to allow users to start an instance using a form in their custom mobile application and also using the workspace.

          We have a 'Form Start Event' so users can start the instance thought the workspace. We also added a 'Message Start Event' in order to publish it as a web service.

          Having that process deployed, if we head to 'Deployed Applications' in workspace main page.

          And click on the button in 'Actions' column.

          We can see the web services exposed.

          If we use that wsdl url in soapui we see that we have 2 operations, one for each of the start events.

          Executing both, we can see that even using 'Form Start Event' we can start a process instance remotely as an operation is automatically created in the web service, so we can remove the 'Message Start Event' as we can meet both requirements just using the 'Form Start Event'.

          I attended Luciad User Conference 2016 in Brussels over the past days.

          I attended to represent Oracle JET, Oracle's new JavaScript platform, used throughout Oracle and beyond as the basis of enterprise JavaScript frontends, solving a range of complex problems out of the box, while providing a range of components such as graphs and charts. And all for free.

          I attended together with my colleague Hans Viehmann, from Oracle Spatial and Graph, who did a session on Oracle DB, as well as Oracle's graph database features, in combination with 3DCityDB and Luciad. He included a nice slide about Oracle JET:

          Furthermore, the Luciad team have been doing experiments with Luciad map components in combination with Oracle JET. They also had a very impressive demonstration, which also includes a range of Oracle JET components:

          It was a really interesting conference, hopefully I'll get to go to it again in future, many interesting new people and the social events were great. Many thanks to the organizers of this event!

          More on Luciad and Oracle JET:

          With the release of NetBeans IDE 8.2, here are my favorite features!

          1. The Release Itself. It's always great to have a new release, a fresh start, new development environment, and to me a new release always feels faster and snappier than the last. Maybe because I simply hope this is the case or maybe because it simply is true. Well, with bunches of bugs fixed, and performance standards to comply with, a new NetBeans release should at least be as performant as the previous, and with the bugs fixed and so on, could justifiably be presumed to work even smoother and snappier than the previous release. So far, to me, it does feel even smoother and snappier than before.

          2. Multiple Cursor Support. I don't know how often I'm going to need to have multiple cursors, I can't imagine needing more than two at the same time. Still, great to have them, it certainly makes NetBeans even more fun and versatile, and, at the same time, this was one of the top P1 issues in NetBeans that users have been asking for for many years (and some even abandoned NetBeans specifically because of lack of multiple cursor support). So, hurray!

          3. Oracle JET Features. No more need to install a plugin to use Oracle JET. For the first time, Oracle JET is now a full feature of NetBeans IDE. The project templates, especially, "Quick Start Basic", and the code completion for Oracle JET components, are very helpful and it's great to not have to do anything special to get these features.

          4. Bling Bling. OK, so I'm not a heavy Docker user, nor do I use ECMAScript 6 (and even experimental ECMAScript 7) features right now. Still, though, it's great to have the latest cutting edgiest things, which really is just mostly bling bling for me, though nice to have available as needed when needed. :-)

          5. Darcula. I love the Darcula plugin and I use it all the time. While it's not available in the Plugin Manager right now, yet, for NetBeans IDE 8.2, you can go to the NetBeans Plugin Portal and just download the 8.1 version and it will work fine in 8.2: Not all the NetBeans IDE 8.1 plugins will work as simply as this, though some will, just give it a try.

          Other features and complete list are here:

          clip_image001In Oracle BPM it is possible to use Oracle ADF to implement Human Tasks, but in Oracle Process Cloud Service you can only create a form using web forms. Creating a form is an easy task and it offers us to define rules that it gives us a lot of flexibility to achieve complex requirements.
          Having this simple form. We can navigate to rules clicking on the marked button.

          For each of the elements we have a number of properties or events that we can manage,
          For example we can manage form load event, or get if a field value is valid...

          To build the rules we have to use JavaScript and we can get code snippets if we click on the button next to each of the properties.

          Let's build a couple of rules so you can see how easy it is.
          Having this combo with this value.

          We can build a rules that populates that combo and also add some kind of value change listener so if its value is "Spain" we can set the country code in Telephone field.
          If we have any syntax errors, will be displayed in the bottom of the editor. Read the complete article here.

        • 10/04/16--04:46: NetBeans and Apache
        • Now that NetBeans is in the Apache Incubator, here are some feelings from my side on the process and on where we currently are.

          1. Philosophically always Apache. I've been involved with NetBeans since about 2004, when I joined Sun Microsystems in Prague. It was always the case that with NetBeans we were trying to do something bigger than serve the interests of a specific commercial entity—NetBeans has always been a platform for innovation and sharing. It's always been free and open source and it has always focused on enabling software developers all over the world to simply get started quickly and easily with Java, primarily, and over the years with other languages and technologies too. While there have been benefits to being tightly coupled to specific commercial interests, that coupling has never been part of the DNA of NetBeans. Philosophically, NetBeans has always been an Apache project and has always behaved in that way, i.e., it's always been primarily about individuals rather than commercial interests.

          2. Continual demands for more open participation. Over the years, there's been a clamoring from the community for the commercial interests behind NetBeans, i.e., Sun Microsystems and then Oracle, to open up the contribution and governance models of NetBeans to enable direct and equal participation, almost as if its users have seen NetBeans as something that always should have been treated by its commercial sponsor like an Apache project all along. The contribution and governance models have been opaque, to say the least, and it's always been the commercial sponsor (i.e., Sun and later Oracle) that has driven the NetBeans roadmap—and in the cases where community interaction on roadmap etc was slightly opened up, for specific releases, it was always the commercial sponsor that made the decision to enable that to happen. However, amazingly, despite all that, NetBeans has built up a very active and enthusiastic community all over the world, with mailing lists, forums, an advocacy group (NetBeans Dream Team), monthly NetBeans events around the world, broad usage across the industry, high usage in education, etc. In NetBeans, its users have always seen a range of high quality free tools and technologies, and an inspiring philosophy of sharing and innovation, beyond those that the commercial sponsor has found it important to promote.

          3. Shared leadership, shared responsibility. Oracle's interests are broad and diverse. Within its specific scope of interest, it is not a tool provider. Nevertheless, Oracle has a range of investments in a variety of different tools, all at the same time. That makes perfect sense, when you examine each instance of that. In some cases, the investments are historical and in others strategic. Together with that, consider how the community has changed over the years and how much stronger and cohesive open source has become. Would it not make sense to share the leadership of projects across multiple entities rather than having it locked into one specific commercial sponsor? And is that train of thought not exactly in line with the clamoring for more involvement and engagement with the community? What better way, then, than to open up the contribution and governance model via the Apache Software Foundation? Everyone who is invested in NetBeans continues to be invested in NetBeans, while its roadmap, governance model, etc, are shared between all those different entities within a model that has proven to work well.

          And that's where we are right now. The NetBeans proposal has been accepted and NetBeans is now in the Apache Incubator. Many things need to happen before NetBeans graduates and becomes a Top Level Project. The hurdles to cross have been examined on all sides and none seem unsolvable. There's a long journey ahead (many months at least) at the end of which the philosophy underpinning NetBeans will match the structures used to govern it. Sometimes there are win/win situations in the world and this surely is one of them.
