Using SMS is a very convenient way to communicate with someone these days and most people prefer to use SMS instead of email. SMS also gives you a history of the conversation while, for example, the context of a phone call can be easily forgotten if you don’t take notes.

In the same way that you text someone these days, you could also apply the same idea to business communications. The convenience, flexibility and speed of SMS can dramatically improve customer service. On top of that, several business tasks could be easily automated. Just imagine that you can get the status of something you order without waiting in line or having to download a particular mobile app by just texting the business’ phone number.

Having the capability of serving your users using SMS with an Intelligent Bot performing the interactions is the exact scenario we are going to explore in this article. Read the complete article here.

The key to building a successful chatbot is to ensure that the bot and the user can have a conversation that both sides understand.

How well the bot understands the conversation depends in part on the quality and amount of end user utterance data. In Oracle Intelligent Bots, sample utterances define a base set of phrases (which would be regarded as typical phrases for that intent) that are used to train the bot to resolve user intent.

In this article we offer some general guidance for designing the utterances for your intents, with specific attention to the case when you do not have access to a set of actual end user utterances. Read the complete article here.

In my previous post, I have explained creating a custom MBean in WebLogic using Shell/Batch script using WLSDM. This post is the continuation of my earlier post, about creating a WebLogic MBean from an SQL query. We don’t require to write a single line of Java code or follow any MBean rules to create and register an MBean. All we need is SQL Query skills and navigation knowledge of WLSDM.

In this post, we are going to register a WebLogic MBean using WLSDM. After that, we can view the MBean attribute dynamically at runtime in WLSDM smart dashboard. Also, we can access this MBean attributes in external Java application. Let’s begin with an example

Here we are going to Create an MBean which read the total salary of IT Programmer.

MBean Name = SALARYBYJOB

MBean attribute name = TOTAL_SALARY

This week I got to do a SAML2 implementation again for APEX against ADFS. Actually the same setup as last year. One pitfall I fell into with open eyes, was the Redirect URI on the ‘Web SSO Partner Provider’. I entered /ords/f*, but it had to be with out the wild-card: /ords/f. But that aside.

At one step in the setup of a SAML2 configuration is that you have to publish the metadata, by clicking a button. Some SAML2 capabable middleware solutions can publish the metadata over an URL. ADFS does support a URL to get the metadata from the Service Provider, being Weblogic12c servicing your application. This prevents that you need to hand over the xml file every time you change/update your configuration. For instance because of expired certificates. How nice would it be if Weblogic supported this?

Well, actually, you can! Sort of… Weblogic does support to service a document-folder, like the htdocs folder of Apache. To do so, you need to create a war file, with only a weblogic.xml file that couples a context-root to a certain folder. And apparently Glassfish can do so too!

When you install ORDS on Weblogic, following the steps, you generate an i.war that is actually the example for this post. You could extract that file and adapt it for this purpose. But I wanted to be able to generate it. Doing so I could reuse this for several other purposes if I would need to. Read the complete article here.

We are pleased to announce the release and open sourcing of the Technology Preview version of the Oracle WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator! We are releasing this Operator to GitHub for creating and managing a WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3 domain on Kubernetes. We are also publishing a blog that describes in detail how to run the Operator, how to stand up one or more WebLogic domains in Kubernetes, how to scale up or down  a WebLogic cluster manually or automatically using the WebLogic Diagnostics Framework (WLDF) or Prometheus, how the Operator manages load balancing for web applications deployed in WebLogic clusters, and how to provide integration for managing Operator logs through ElasticSearch, logstash and Kibana.

A Kubernetes Operator is "an application specific controller that extends the Kubernetes API to create, configure, and manage instances of complex applications".

We are adopting the Operator pattern and using it to provide an adapter to integrate WebLogic Server and Kubernetes, allowing Kubernetes to serve as a container infrastructure hosting WebLogic Server instances. And so the WebLogic Server Kubernetes Operator is an operator that extends Kubernetes to create, configure, and manage a WebLogic domain. Read the complete article here.
