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

2- Download Putty from and create public and provate keys as stated here

3- Create a DbCS instance with “backup to both” option (needed for JCS instance creation later on). See instructions here

4- Create storage container for JCS backup following or alternatively using this link

5- Create JCS instance following this link

6- Download WorkBetter Alta UI demo from

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

8- Deploy to JCS instance using Fussion Middleware Control



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

    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.

      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?
