The situation discussed in this article is as follows: a rich client web application (JavaScript based, could be created with Oracle JET or based on Angular/Vue/React/Ember/…) is embedded in an ADF or WebCenter Portal application. Users are authenticated in that application through a regular login procedure that leverages the OPSS (Oracle Platform Security Service) in WebLogic, authenticating against an LDAP directory or another type of security provider. The embedded rich web application makes calls to REST APIs. These APIs enforce authentication and authorization – to prevent rogue calls. Note: these APIs have to be accessible from wherever the users are working with the ADF or WebCenter Portal application.

This article describes how the authenticated HTTP Session context in ADF – where we have the security context with authenticated principal with subjects and roles – can be leveraged to generate a secure token that can be passed to the embedded client web application and subsequently used by that application to make calls to REST APIs that can verify through that token that an authenticated user is making the call. The REST API can also extract relevant information from the token – such as the user’s identity, permissions or entitlements and custom attributes. The token could also be used by the REST API to retrieve additional information about the user and his or her session context.

Note: if calls are made to REST APIs that are deployed as part of the enterprise application (same EAR file) that contains the ADF or WebCenter Portal application, then the session cookie mechanism ensures that the REST API handles the request in the same [authenticated]session context. In that case, there is no need for a token exchange. Read the complete article here.

It’s very easy to define a field in a custom object in Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service to store a date, but when it comes to doing calculations and queries based on this date you’ll find that you need to resort to a little bit of JavaScript calculations.

Here are a couple of useful things to know if you are trying to do that.

Calculating Age (or time passed from a date in years)

Let’s assume you are storing information about employees and one of the pieces of information you have is their date of birth – the Birthday field in the image below.

How do you show their actual age in years on a page?

You can define a calculated field in your business object – and have VBCS use the "calculate value with formula" as the source for this field. Read the complete article here.

A couple of threads on the Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service forum asked about writing code in buttons in VBCS that compares values entered in a page to data in business objects and perform conditional navigation based on the values. In a past blog I showed the code needed for querying VBCS objects from the UI, but another sample never hurts, so here is another demo…

For this demo I’m going to show how to do it in a login flow – assuming you have a business object that keeps usernames and passwords, and you want to develop a page where a user types a user/pass combination and you need to verify that this is indeed a valid combination that exist in the business object.

(In reality, if you want to do user authentication in VBCS – you should use the built in security frameworks and not code it this way. I’m just using this as an example.)

Here is a quick video of the working app – with pointers to the components detailed below. Read the complete article here.

Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS) makes it very easy to create custom objects to store your data. A frequent request we get is for a way to load and export data from these business objects. As John blogged, we added a feature to support doing this through the command line – John’s blog shows you the basic options for the command line.

I recently needed to do this for a customer, and thought I’ll share some tips that helped me get the functionality working properly – in case others need some help skipping bumps in the road. Watch the demo here.

The task tracking system in Oracle Developer Cloud Service (DevCS) helps your team manage your development priorities and process. DevCS offers a simple web interface for working with the system. However, in some cases you might want to build your own interfaces to interact with the issues. For example, you might want to build a system for end-users to report bugs in your app and you don’t want to give them direct access to the DevCS web insterface. In the August 17 update of DevCS  we introduced a set of REST services that will let you build a custom interface that will interact with our issues repository.

The official documentation for the DevCS REST services is here.

I wanted to share some tips to help you get this going in your project. The results are in this short video demo, and the details are below. Read the complete article here.

Amid the hype and discussion around chatbots, people are actually diving in and developing chatbot services.  Chabot development comes with a unique set of requirements and considerations that may prove challenging to those making their first excursion into this new breed of services. This podcast features a panel of developers who have been there, done that, and are willing to talk about it.

The panelists for this program were part of a pilot program that provided early access to the Intelligent Bot platform, which is now available as part of Oracle Mobile Cloud, Enterprise. Listen to the webcast here.
