Oracle Java can reduce costs, drive innovation, and improve application services as the programming language of choice for IoT, enterprise architecture, and cloud computing. When technology visionary Marc Andreessen penned his famous essay “Why Software Is Eating the World,” businesses everywhere acknowledged the importance of developing software applications that can accelerate business processes and differentiate services. However, if software development is not a core competence, building an entire data center doesn’t make sense. Hence, many businesses are turning to the cloud to develop and run their applications and information systems. Businesses value the ability to develop and test their apps in the cloud, and then run production workloads on premises. In addition to shifting development and testing (DevTest) to the cloud, some of these businesses have made the decision to migrate applications to the cloud as well — including on-premises apps, packaged apps, web-based apps, Oracle Java Enterprise Edition apps, open source-based apps, and many other traditional applications.
Once migrated, these applications can be integrated with other on-premises and cloud apps. Businesses are also choosing to mobile-enable and extend their existing apps. In addition, many businesses are building new applications in the cloud — commonly called cloud-native applications. Typically, these apps are developed based on microservices architecture and run in containers. Moreover, many IT shops have formed DevOps teams in which application developers collaborate with operations personnel to create, test, troubleshoot, and improve applications as part of a continuous application development and deployment process through the entire application lifecycle. In conjunction with these initiatives, line-of-business owners and citizen developers are demanding a development and publishing platform that allows them to create new web and mobile applications and extend SaaS applications.This brief explains how you can utilize Oracle Cloud to accelerate the development of web, mobile, and enterprise applications while dramatically simplifying your IT environment.
Oracle Java — Accelerate Application Delivery With DevTest On Oracle Cloud
Oracle Cloud represents the industry’s most comprehensive cloud-based application development offering. It spans the infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS), and application (SaaS) layers and includes private, public, and hybrid cloud deployment options, with the same underlying technology in each category for easy interoperability among them. Oracle Cloud supports many different applications, languages, operating systems, tools, utilities, and data types, including open source technology. It’s ideal for developing and deploying both Oracle Java and third-party applications — and you can migrate finished apps from Oracle Cloud to your own data center and back again, unchanged.With Oracle Cloud, you can create a highly responsive development organization while reducing capital costs and operational expenses. Oracle Developer Cloud Service for professional programmers provides a streamlined team development and delivery platform. At the touch of a button, you can create a fully provisioned development platform, complete with infrastructure.
Increase Efficiency And Productivity With DevOps
Oracle Cloud facilitates the DevOps model by enabling software developers to collaborate with quality assurance and operations personnel, streamlining application development and delivery. For example, your developers can commit changes to a shared Git repository, create tasks and assign them to team members, define and collaborate on projects through wiki services, and continuously build and deploy applications with Hudson. You can use Oracle Management Cloud to monitor deployments and prevent production problems, maintaining conceptual consistency across production environments via metrics, logs, and topological flow maps. Cloud-native applications are specifically developed for cloud platforms, to run on cloud platforms. Oracle Java allows developers to build application components or microservices using the tools and technologies they are comfortable with. applications and services can be deployed on containers — and these containers can be created much faster than hypervisor-based instances.
