    Oracle provides ICS (Integration Cloud Service) as a simple means for citizen developers to do integrations in the cloud and between cloud and on-premises. On the Oracle Fusion Middleware Partner Community Forum I got a chance to get some hand-on experience with this product in one of the workshops. In this blog post I will describe some of my experiences. I’m not the target audience for this product since I am a technical developer and have different requirements compared to a citizen developer. I’ve not been prejudiced by reading the documentation

    I experimented with ICS on two use-cases. I wanted to proxy SOAP and REST requests. For the SOAP request I used a SOA-CS Helloworld web-service and for the REST request I used an Apiary mockservice. I will not go into basics too much such as creating a new Connection and using the Connection in an Integration since you can easily learn about those in other places.

    ICS: Calling a SOAP service on SOA-CS

    When you want to call a SOAP service which you have exposed on ICS, you require two sets of headers. The WS-Timestamp headers and the WSS-UserName token headers (with the password in plain text).

    This is required even when you have not specified a security policy (currently username/password token and basic authentication are supported). When you don’t provide them, you get Service Bus errors (as shown in the screenshot below) which indicates ICS is running on the Service Bus (in case you didn’t know this yet, it is no secret). This was not required when directly calling the SOA-CS service. Read the complete article here.

    During UKOUG 2016, this week, I learned a cool thing from my colleague Lyudmil Pelov—the response to the most frequently asked question from the Oracle JET sessions I have been doing around the world: "Isn't the 'js/views' and 'js/viewModels' structure a technical rather than a functional architecture? And wouldn't it be better to have both sides of an Oracle JET module in the same folder?"

    Well, take a look at this, the "navdrawer" template restructured based on functionality, e.g., in the "app/pages/dashboard" folder, both sides of the "dashboard" module are found, rather than the viewModel being in 'js/viewModels' and the view in 'js/views':

    If you prefer this structure over the default structure brought to you by the Oracle JET templates, take the following steps. I suggest you first get it working in the "navdrawer" template, before trying to apply this structure to your own application. 

    1. Set up the 'navbar' template, i.e., use the "Oracle JET QuickStart Basic" template in NetBeans IDE.

    2. Create a new folder named 'app', as shown in the structure above.

    3. Inside 'app', create a folder called 'pages', with a subfolder for each of the custom Oracle JET modules provided by the 'navbar' template, i.e., 'dashboard', 'incidents', 'customers', and 'about'. Move the 'dashboard.js' and 'dashboard.html' from 'js/viewModels' and 'js/views' into the 'app/dashboard' folder. Do the same for the other Oracle JET modules.

    4. Move the 'libs' folder into 'app' (and tweak '.bowerrc' and potentially other similar files, to download JavaScript libraries into the new location of 'libs'). In 'main.js', change all the paths to JavaScript libraries to reflect their new locations, i.e., they're no longer in 'libs'; they're in 'app/libs'.

    5. Move 'appController.js', 'main-release-paths.json', and 'main.js' into the 'app' folder. In 'index.html', correct the reference to 'main.js' to its new location in 'app' and do the same for 'require.js', which should now be in 'app/libs/require'.

    6. In the 'requirejs.config' section in 'main.js', change the 'baseUrl' to point to '.' instead of 'js'.

    7. In 'appController.js', change the router as follows and notice that you can also have a functional nested structure for your Oracle JET modules:
      function getPagePath(path) {
        return 'pages/' + path + '/' + path.substr(path.lastIndexOf('/') + 1);
      }
      self.router = oj.Router.rootInstance;
      self.router.configure({
       'dashboard': {value: getPagePath('dashboard'), label: 'Dashboard', isDefault: true},
       'incidents': {value: getPagePath('incidents'), label: 'Incidents'},
       'customers': {value: getPagePath('customers'), label: 'Customers'},
       'about': {value: getPagePath('about'), label: 'About'}
      });
      
    8. In 'main.js', as the new first lines in the 'require' block, override the default locations of the viewModels and views, i.e., rather than the default 'js/viewModels' and 'js/views', you now want them to both be found within the 'app' folder (in the location specified by the router in the previous step):
      oj.ModuleBinding.defaults.modelPath = 'app/';
      oj.ModuleBinding.defaults.viewPath = 'text!app/';
      

    At this point, you should be able to delete the 'js' folder, i.e., there should be nothing in it anymore.

    Run the application and everything should work exactly as before!

    There's often a need to create standard forms for different purposes in an application, such as these, an incident entry form and a customer feedback form:


    Imagine if all that would be needed for creating the two forms above would be this in each view:

    <json2form json="{{jsonFile}}"/>

    For each view containing the above, the viewModel would load a file such as this for the form on the left above:

    [
        {
            "key": "incidents_form",
            "title": "Incident Entry Form",
            "description": "Enter Incident Details",
            "message": "We want incidents fixed fast!",
            "properties": [
                {"name": "Type", "options": ["Serious", "Minor"]},
                {"name": "Description"},
                {"name": "City"},
                {"name": "State"},
                {"name": "Country"}
            ]
        }
    ]

    And this for the form on the right above:

    [
        {
            "key": "customer_form",
            "title": "Customer Feedback Form",
            "description": "Enter Customer Feedback",
            "message": "We love our customers!",
            "properties": [
                {"name": "Name"},
                {"name": "Feedback"},
                {"name": "Rating", "options": ["Excellent","Good","Bad"]}
            ]
        }
    ]

    To achieve the above, we need to make use of the composite component architecture, described here:

    http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/jet/jetCookbook.html?component=composite&demo=basic

    I have blogged about a simple getting started scenario for composite components architecture here:

    https://blogs.oracle.com/geertjan/entry/minimal_oracle_jet_composite_component

    We also need to make use of the metadata-driven dynamic form functionality described here:

    http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/jet/jetCookbook.html?component=controlcombos&demo=formdynamic

    In this case, what we need is a structure like this:

    See yesterday's blog entry if you want your applications structured like the above.

    Here's the definition of loader.js:

    define([
        'ojs/ojcore',
        'text!./view.html',
        './viewModel',
        'text!./metadata.json',
        'ojs/ojcomposite'],
            function (oj, view, viewModel, metadata)
            {
                oj.Composite.register('json2form', {
                    view: {inline: view},
                    viewModel: {inline: viewModel},
                    metadata: {inline: JSON.parse(metadata)}
                });
            }
    );

    Here's the definition of metadata.json:

    {
      "properties": {
        "json": {
          "type": "Array"
        }
      }
    }

    Here's the definition of viewModel.js:

    define(['ojs/ojcore', 'knockout',
        'ojs/ojinputtext',
        'ojs/ojradioset', 'ojs/ojbutton'],
    function (oj, ko) {
        function CompositeModel(context) {
            var self = this;
            context.props.then(function (props) {
                self._props = props;
                _initProperties();
            });
            function _initProperties() {
                self.descriptors = ko.computed(function () {
                    var mapped = self._props.json.map(
                            function (json) {
                                var def = {
                                    title: json.title,
                                    description: json.description,
                                    message: json.message,
                                    properties: json.properties
                                };
                                return def;
                            }
                    );
                    return mapped;
                });
            }
        }
        return CompositeModel;
    });

    Here's the definition of view.html:

    <div data-bind="foreach: descriptors" class="oj-panel-alt2 oj-margin oj-flex-item">
        <div class="oj-flex-item oj-panel-alt2 oj-margin">
            <h1 data-bind="text: title"></h1>
            <h3 data-bind="text: description"></h3>
        </div>
        <div class="oj-flex-item oj-panel-alt2 oj-margin">
            <!-- ko foreach: $data.properties -->
            <div class="oj-flex-item oj-panel-alt oj-margin">
                <label data-bind="text: $data.name"></label>:
                <!-- ko if: $data.options -->
                    <!-- ko foreach: $data.options -->
                    <div data-bind="ojComponent: {
                            component: 'ojRadioset',
                            value: $data}">
                        <span class="oj-choice-row">
                            <input type="radio" value="$data">
                            <label><span data-bind="text: $data"></span></label>
                        </span>
                    </div>
                    <!-- /ko -->
                <!-- /ko -->
                <!-- ko ifnot: $data.options -->
                <input id="inputcontrol"
                   data-bind="ojComponent: {
                       component: 'ojInputText',
                       rootAttributes: {style:'max-width:100em'}}">
                <!-- /ko -->
            </div>
            <!-- /ko -->
        </div>
        <div class="oj-flex-item oj-panel-alt2 oj-margin">
            <b data-bind="text: message"></b>
        </div>
    </div>
    <hr>

    And, finally, here's how the files are loaded and used in all the viewModels that need to make use of it:

    define(['text!./customers.json',
        'ojs/ojcore',
        'knockout',
        'jquery',
        'ojs/ojcomposite',
        'app/jet-composites/json2form/loader'],
            function (file, oj, ko, $) {
                function CustomerViewModel() {
                    var self = this;
                    self.jsonFile= JSON.parse(file);
                }
                return new CustomerViewModel();
            }
    );

    There is more to be done to complete this scenario because right now we're only rendering the forms and not processing the input. That will be the next step of this series.

    Right now, based on the above, you're able to transform a JSON file into a form, which is the first step in this scenario. Thanks to my colleague Max Starets for providing a similar scenario to this recently.

    This blog provides a quick tip for implementing file upload into Oracle Document Cloud Service (DOCS) using java in Oracle SOA and Oracle SOA Cloud Service(SOACS)

    The DOCS upload REST service requires POSTing of multipart form, a feature that is currently unavailable in the REST cloud adapter. This POST request to upload a file contains 2 body parts. The first being a json payload and the second containing the actual file content.

    The request format looks as shown here in the Oracle Documents Cloud Service REST API Reference.

    The section below shows a java embedded block of code that can be used within a BPEL process to achieve the file upload. This can be used in Oracle SOA and SOACS – BPEL composites. A valid DOCS endpoint, credentials for authorization, and a GUID of the folder location for the file upload are required to execute this REST call.
    In this sample, a pdf document file is being uploaded into DOCS. The media type should be appropriately changed for other content formats.
    Also, It is recommended to access the authorization credentials from a credential store when developing for production deployments. This section is only intended as a demo. Read the complete article here.

    Microsoft Office 2007 logoMicrosoft is ending support for Office 2007 on October 10, 2017.  The official announcement is published here:

    Microsoft will stop producing security updates and non-security updates for Office 2007 after that date.

    Office 2007 included Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint and others.  EBS integrations with these products are certified for desktop clients accessing the E-Business Suite today.  Our general policy is that we support certified third-party products as long as the third-party vendor supports them.  When the third-party vendor retires a product, we consider that to be an historical certification for EBS.

    What can EBS customers expect after October 2017?

    After Microsoft desupports Office 2007 in October 2017:

    • Oracle Support will continue to assist, where possible, in investigating issues that involve Office 2007.
    • Oracle's ability to assist may be limited due to limited access to PCs running Office 2007.
    • Oracle will continue to provide access to existing EBS patches for Office 2007 issues.
    • Oracle will provide new EBS patches only for issues that can be reproduced on later Office versions that Microsoft is actively supporting (e.g. Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 2016).

    What should EBS customers do?

    Oracle strongly recommends that E-Business Suite customers upgrade their desktops from Office 2007 to the latest certified equivalents.  As of today, those are Office 2010, Office 2013, and Office 2016.

    The migration to cloud causes enterprises, work teams and individuals to work differently.

    Cloud application typically offers a more efficient workflow, streamlined access or seamless data integration; however, the enterprise can only realize those benefits if its employees adopt the new processes - and that almost always requires new skills.

    In a recent blog about why Cloud applications require training, I described the reasons why training is essential to experience the the benefits of any new application, cloud or on premise.

    Beyond that imperative of training to use an application, the impacted roles must adopt the new process and avoid falling back on old ways of doing business.

    The goal of almost all business related training isn't simply to transfer skills or knowledge, but rather to get the learner to use that knowledge to adopt the new process or tool.

    But adopting new processes is at its core, a change management exercise.

    Cloud user training reinforces the critical elements of change management to support adoption. These elements include:

    The benefits to the enterprise and specific audiences. Change management professionals maintain that the most effective way to create organizational change is to help the effected organization understand the benefits of the new approach. Understanding the expected vision helps create shared expectations and a common purpose throughout the organization.

    How processes or relationships are expected to change.While training often focuses on the new “to be” workflows, it's essential to acknowledge and bridge from the activities the organization is leaving behind. This establishes and reinforces the benefits, but also explicitly describes how the expected workflow differs from the prior workflow.

    Describes target performance standards for groups and individuals.With every new process, individuals will be concerned that they won’t be able to live up to the new expectations or they “won’t be able to change.” Part of that worry comes from ambiguous expectations.

    Combining training with change management elements creates a powerful, multi-dimensional state-of-the-art approach to effective user adoption.

    But two elements require a bit more explanation: leveraging performance standards and maintaining skills to sustain benefits.

    Leveraging Performance Standards to Target Training 

    Performance standards are scary.

    Just like key performance indicators (KPIs), or service level agreements (SLAs), performance standards are inherently judgmental – an organization (or individual) either meets the standard or does not.

    Properly calibrated performance standards help an organization communicate organizational expectations and target training to support achievement of those expectations.

    IDC research has found that increasing project spending on training and adoption from 4.5% to 6% of project budget improves the chances that the new application will meet its performance targets by 30%.

    But spending by itself is insufficient. Training and change management communication must target the right populations of users. 

    Understanding the expected standards are important to help determine when training is appropriate for each individual.

    At the same time, well defined performance standards can help the enterprise intelligently intervene when performance changes.

    Enterprises are using adoption monitoring tools in cloud based applications to identify when individuals or teams are not on track to meet performance expectations.

    Enterprises that cannot monitor performance have higher-than-necessary error rates or inefficiencies. And, users are frustrated; either frustrated because they can’t meet the performance standard, or frustrated because they believe the performance standards are not achievable and unrealistic.

    When an organization effectively monitors team or individual performance, it can then provide targeted remediation – office hours, Q&A sessions, individual or team training, or even change the process flow – to improve performance.

    By monitoring adoption, the application management teams can effectively identify:

    • Errors caused by a breakdown in training delivery
    • Errors caused by "difficult" steps
    • User adoption of new processes
    • User efficiency of completing complex tasks
    • Specific training needs for users, groups or locations

    Maintain Skills to Sustain Benefits 

    But once an organization is “trained” on a new cloud-based application, the job is not done. Skills and performance degrade over time without ongoing training. This is due to:

    • Processes changing: Cloud-based applications are constantly changing processes, features or capabilities of the application.

    • New hires coming onboard: a new team member is typically not fully trained for their new role.

    • People changing roles: individuals get promoted out of roles they are completely familiar with and take on roles with which they are less familiar.

    • People forgetting: for tasks or processes that are not done regularly, it is easy for staff to revert to old ways of completing a step, as they forget the subtleties of particularly workflows.

    All of these combine to cause “knowledge leakage” in organizations that don’t regularly train their teams.

    Knowledge leakage can cause a team to lose up to 60% of its original capability in just 3 years. And a team can lose up to 75% of its capability in 6 years without continuous ongoing training.

    The remedy involves taking a new approach to training:

    • Training needs to be continuously updated and continuously available
    • Updates need to be easy to consume and focused on the new content

    • Team members must be able to monitor their own performance against organizational standards

    The benefits of training are worth it.

    75% of well-trained teams that use cloud-based enterprise applications (finance, supply chain, HCM, etc.) report improved workflow, compared with 55% of teams that are not well-trained. 

    Recommendations

    Cloud and cloud-based applications may offer many benefits, but are highly disruptive to existing processes.

    IDC analysis has determined that even small amounts of additional training can improve a team’s performance. The addition of just an hour of training per significant process or workflow over the course of a year can dramatically improve a team member's understanding of his or her role and others' roles on the team.

    IDC believes that with the dramatic increase in the use of technology for many roles, knowledge workers should get a minimum of 10 hours of job-role related training every year to remain current.

    And additional training is necessary when organizations are changing applications – like moving to cloud-based applications.

    Additionally, enterprises should do the following:

    • Incorporate change management components within user training to facilitate smooth adoption of new tools.

    • Establish and communicate performance standards and fully prepare users to meet those objectives. This is most effective during the early stages of migrating applications to the cloud.

    Fully train new team members, new hires, promotions or transfers on their responsibilities and expectations early in their orientation to the new role.

    Version numbering for Oracle Database, Enterprise Manager, and Fusion Middleware products began to change after November 2015. The new version format makes it easier to see which bundle patches are from which time-frame, and in particular which patches are from the same Critical Patch Update release. 

    This change is documented here:

    Some bundles may continue to use a numeric 5th digit in the short term, but will transition to the new format over time.

    What changed?

    The new format replaces the numeric fifth digit of the bundle version with a release date in the form  "YYMMDD" where:

    • YY is the last 2 digits of the year
    • MM is the numeric month (2 digits)
    • DD is the numeric day of the month (2 digits)

    The "release date" is the release date of the main bundle / PSU / SPU. In some rare cases, for example where the same bundle is released on multiple platforms, the patch for a specific platform may not be available until some days after the "release date".

          This blog focuses on new feature released with ‘Oracle Cloud Adapter for Salesforce.com’ on ICS starting from 16.1.5. On- Prem SOA Suite will have same feature coming up down the line.

          In this blog will walk you through the features of new options; Custom WSDL Support and also how to leverage CUSTOM WSDL (Apex WSDL) of force.com to do the integration between force.com and external system with Salesforce adapter on ICS.

          Before we proceed we should know answers of following questions – (If you aware of these terminology)

          1. Why Custom WSDL?
          2. What is Custom WSDL?
          3. How to Generate & Download Custom WSDL?
          Why Custom WSDL:

          Though Salesforce, by default, provide rich connectivity through standard SOAP and REST API, but there still be a need to extend / enrich the built in functionality in order to support business specific requirement. There could completely new business requirement that by default does not exist. Again all these things can be achieved through Apex coding / custom coding on force.com. Read the complete article here.

          We bet when reading the title to this blog, you hoped you'd get some comprehensive notes from Product Hub Development, with clear, concise examples for importing data. You would have been right, you data loader you!

          Let's start with, Importing Data into Oracle Product Hub (Doc ID 1504980.1).Doc ID 1504980.1 helps with FNDLOAD, iSetup, APIs, Excel load, Interface tables, Web Services etc are various approaches you could load the entities. Doc ID 1504980.1 also provides examples on how to use methods for various metadata entities like Item Catalog Categories, Attribute groups, Attributes, Item pages, Item page entries, Value sets, Functions, etc.



          In addition Doc ID 1504980.1 also discusses examples for loading data entities like Items, User-defined Attributes, Roles, Structures etc. A few limitations are also listed on the note.

          During every bulk load process, there arises an additional task of tuning performance to manage the process efficiently.  Loading Items and User-defined attributes are usually performance intensive, especially due to the volume of data. It is well known that Interface table approach is the best when repetitive / batch bulk loads need to be performed, as the users have control over tuning the environment.   Product Hub Development has provided various recommendations to tune and manage performance for bulk loads when using significantly. This is covered in note, Optimizing Item Import Performance in Oracle Product Hub/Inventory (Doc ID 1208945.1).

          These quick recommendations can help you migrate or setup Product Hub instances more effectively in a manageable time-frame.
