altauideploy

This is a compilation of tutorials that aims to show how you can deploy a ready to run demo application built with the Oracle ALTA UI user interface look&feel.

You are creating a lot of infraestructure and software elements in a few clicks such as a database instance, a complete weblogic cluster ready to deploy java applications and with a load balancer on top. Provission times for OPC instances may vary from half an hour to a couple of hours more or less. You can dedicate this iddle time to prepare the next steps of the tutorial.

1-Download jDeveloper 12c from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/downloads/index.html

2- Download Putty from http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.zip and create public and provate keys as stated here http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/tutorials/obe/cloud/javaservice/JCS/JCS_SSH/create_sshkey.html

3- Create a DbCS instance with “backup to both” option (needed for JCS instance creation later on). See instructions here https://apexapps.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=44785:112:0::::P112_CONTENT_ID:10799

4- Create storage container for JCS backup following https://apexapps.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=44785:112:0::::P112_CONTENT_ID:10888 or alternatively using this link https://www.dropbox.com/s/13t9gzpyqzhk2zg/BACKUP%20TO%20DBBS%20HANDS-ON.pdf?dl=0

5- Create JCS instance following this link https://apexapps.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=44785:112:0:::112:P112_CONTENT_ID:10021

6- Download WorkBetter Alta UI demo from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/index-098948.html#alta

7- Open the application with jDeveloper and package it as EAR.

8- Deploy to JCS instance using Fussion Middleware Control

fmwcontroldeploy

9- Test your deployment https://<yourpublicotdip>/WorkBetterFaces/faces/index such as https://160.34.11.101/WorkBetterFaces (the link may not work in the future, demo account is being utilized courtesy of Oracle Corp)

Enjoy 😉

  1. Hi. I’ve tried deploying it and am currently getting the error ‘Object HRService of type DataControl is not found.’ Do you need to configure a connection to the HR schema on the Cloud database? Thanks.

    1. Hi,
      The sample application does not use any database schema, I’ve checked the link in step 6 just in case it changed but it seems is still not using database. The project has got a datacontrol called HRService but it is created from POJOs in the model project. Have you tried to execute the app in the embedded weblogic in jDeveloper?
      Regards
