This tutorial covers how to set up the Oracle Enterprise Pack
for Eclipse (OEPE) integrated development environment (IDE) for
use with Oracle Cloud.
Time to Complete
Approximately 30 minutes
Oracle Cloud is a public, enterprise, platform-as-a-service (Paas) offering. Two services provided by Oracle Cloud are particularly interesting to Java applications developers: Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle Database Cloud Service. You can configure these services through a web interface, a command-line tool, or an IDE such as OEPE.
In this tutorial, you configure OEPE with a local instance of Oracle WebLogic Server 11g (10.3.6) and with a remote instance of Oracle Cloud. Next, you deploy a simple Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application locally, and then you deploy the same application to Oracle Cloud.
Before starting this tutorial, you should:
- Have an Oracle.com account.
- Have already completed the Oracle by Example tutorial titled Signing Up for a Java Cloud Service.
- Have installed Oracle
Enterprise Pack for Eclipse (OEPE) 22.214.171.124 Runtime Bundle (OEPE
12c + WebLogic Server 10.3.6 + Oracle Application
Development Framework [Oracle ADF] 126.96.36.199).
- Have downloaded the Oracle
Cloud Software Development Kit (SDK) and unzipped it to
a directory (for example,
- Have downloaded and unzipped the ajaxguessnumber.zip project.
Adding WebLogic Server 11g
Oracle Java Cloud Service is powered by WebLogic Server 11g with some specific additions and exclusions (white-listed APIs and services). As an application developer, you may want to create and test applications locally before deploying the application to Oracle Java Cloud Service.
(Optional) Configuring OEPE to Use a Proxy
This section is optional. If your machine is behind a firewall or inside a corporate network, you must configure OEPE to communicate with the Internet through a proxy.
Adding an Oracle Java Cloud Service Instance to OEPE
In this section, you add your Oracle Java Cloud Service
instance to OEPE.
Deploying and Running the Sample Application Locally
Deploying the Sample Application to Your Oracle Cloud
In this section, you deploy the ajaxguessnumber project to your Oracle Cloud instance.
Monitoring Your Oracle Java Cloud Service from OEPE
Through OEPE, you can monitor your Oracle Java Cloud Service.
In this tutorial, you learned how to:
- Add a local instance of WebLogic Server 11g to OEPE
- Configure OEPE to use a proxy host
- Add your Oracle Java Cloud Service to OEPE
- Deploy a sample application locally to your WebLogic Server instance and remotely to your Oracle Java Cloud Service
- Use OEPE tools to access your Oracle Java Cloud Service job
and instance logs
