Oracle Mobile Cloud Service is a so called ‘cloud native’ product in the Oracle PaaS offering: it runs in the Oracle Public Cloud and there is no on premise variant in the Oracle Fusion Middleware stack.
In our current MCS project we have set up a number of things to make sure that we can achieve the same quality in our software development lifecycle (sdlc) as we have in our ‘traditional’ projects. One of the measures is the ability to run unit tests locally before deploying the code.
MCS is a cloud service that is based on node.js. It offers a number of platform APIs that you can use when creating custom APIs for mobile developers. The figure below shows these platform APIs: storage APIs to store files, Database APIs to store relational data, notifications etc. When you write a custom API, you use the platform APIs and you call connectors in the implementation.
When you use a tool like Netbeans (or any other javscript tool), these platform APIs are not available, which makes it hard to test your code without installing it on MCS. To solve this problem, MCS offers MCS custom code test tools. Read the complete article here.
