Functions-as-a-Service – What SOA Should Have Been by Sherwood Zern

Introduction

It wasn’t that many years ago that service-oriented architecture (SOA) was the hot, new, bleeding edge enterprise computing paradigm. Most organizations and vendors jumped on that bandwagon and everything became “service-oriented”. Organizations and vendors both made great claims about how SOA would revolutionize the way applications were built, the amount of reuse that would be achieved, and how application time to market would be greatly reduced. In addition, applications built with SOA technology were supposed to be easier to scale dynamically and those businesses that embraced SOA would see vast improvements in the relationships between IT and the business.

First steps with Docker Checkpoint – to create and restore snapshots of running containers by Lucas Jellema



Docker Containers can be stopped and started again. Changes made to the file system in a running container will survive this deliberate stop and start cycle. Data in memory and running processes obviously do not. A container that crashes cannot just be restarted and will have a file system in an undetermined state if it can be restarted. When you start a container after it was stopped, it will go through its full startup routine. If heavy duty processes needs to be started – such as a database server process – this startup time can be substantial, as in many seconds or dozens of seconds.

Announcing GraalVM: Run Programs Faster Anywhere by Thomas Wuerthinger and the GraalVM Team


Current production virtual machines (VMs) provide high performance execution of programs only for a specific language or a very small set of languages. Compilation, memory management, and tooling are maintained separately for different languages, violating the ‘don’t repeat yourself’ (DRY) principle. This leads not only to a larger burden for the VM implementers, but also for developers due to inconsistent performance characteristics, tooling, and configuration. Furthermore, communication between programs written in different languages requires costly serialization and deserialization logic. Finally, high performance VMs are heavyweight processes with high memory footprint and difficult to embed.

Displaying the Top 3 Runner-Up Intents in case of Unresolved Intent Resolution by Frank Nimphius

Randomizing Responses from your Bot with Oracle Intelligent Bots by Grant Ronald

One element to the success of your bot is the tone and voice your bots uses. Informal and “chatty” response may be a more engaging and better fit with your brand. In line with this approach, you would probably want to ensure your bot replies are not formulaic and predictable. In this article I demonstrate how you can easily randomize the responses from your bot.

A Simple Guide and Solution to Using Resource Bundles in Custom Components by Frank Nimphius

A common requirement for bots is to support multiple languages. To address this requirement, Oracle Intelligent Bots provides the ability to configure translation services from Google and Microsoft to auto-translate user input messages and bot responses. If you don't want bot responses to be auto-translated then a second option is to use Resource Bundles instead.

Building Oracle Jet applications with Docker Hub by Eugene Fedorenko

In this post I am going to show a simple CI solution for an Oracle Jet application basing on Docker Hub Automated Builds feature. The solution is container native meaning that Docker Hub is going to automatically build a Docker image according to a Docker file. The image is going to be stored in Docker Hub registry. A Docker file is a set of instructions on how to build a Docker image and those instructions may contain any actions including building an Oracle Jet application. So, what we need to do is to create a proper Docker file and set up Docker Hub Automated Build.

First steps with REST services on ADF Business Components by Jeroen Rijnboutt

Recently we had a challenge at a customer for which ADF REST resources on Business Components were the perfect solution.

Our application is built in Oracle JET and of course we wanted nice REST services to communicate with. Because our data is stored in an Oracle database we needed an implementation to easily access the data from JET.

Garbage First in JDeveloper by Martien van den Akker



At my current customer we work with VDI's: Virtual Desktop Images, that at several times a day very, very slow. Even so slow that it more or less stalls for a minute or two.

JDeveloper is not known as a Ferrari under the IDE's. One of the causes is that by default heap settings is very poor: 128M-800M. Especially when you use it in SOA or BPM Quickstart then at startup it will need to grow several times. But very soon working in it you'll get out of memory errors.
