Application Development Platform — 16.4.3 is available



ANNOUNCING Application Development Platform 16.4.3 with updates and enhancements to Java Cloud Service, Application Container Cloud, Database Cloud Service, and an introduction to a new service, Exadata Express Cloud Service.
Java Cloud Service

  • Auto-scaling can now be configured in JCS to automatically scale a cluster in or out, based on CPU utilization, as explained in About Automatic Scaling in Using Oracle Java Cloud Service.
  • JCS can generate SSH keys and storage containers during service provisioning, so these prerequisites were removed from all Getting Started collateral (video, tutorial, etc).
  • When using AppToCloud to migrate an existing WebLogic Server domain, JMS and Java Mail resources are automatically captured from the source domain and imported into your Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. See Creating an Oracle Java Cloud Service Instance with AppToCloud in Using Oracle Java Cloud Service.
  • There are now two ways to access Chat for support. You can either use the Chat icon that appears at the top of the Oracle Cloud console to the left of the Preferences dropdown or you can click the Help icon (?) and, from the Help Drawer, select Chat with us.
  • A new Security chapter was added to Using Oracle Java Cloud Service.
  • A new Scaling tab was added in the JCS Help Center
