SOA Suite 12c in Docker containers. Only a couple of commands, no installers, no third party scripts by Maarten Smeets

For developers, installing a full blown local SOA Suite environment has never been a favorite (except for a select few). It is time consuming and requires you to download and run various installers after each other. If you want to start clean (and you haven’t taken precautions), it could be you have to start all over again.

Some Tips for Working with Visual Builder UI Components in Oracle Integration Cloud by Siming Mu

The 18.2.5 release of Visual Builder in OIC is more user friendly than prior releases. For example, in 18.2.5, users are not forced to write Javascript code to create a custom data type, and data mapping can be done with drag and drop.

Demystifying Blockchain and Consensus Mechanisms - Everything You Wanted to Know But Were Never Told by Andre Boaventura
