Fishbowl Hackathon 2016 Summary – Oracle WebCenter Innovations with Slack, Google Vision, and Email

This post comes from Fishbowl’s president, Tim Gruidl. One of Tim’s biggest passions is technology innovation, and not only does he encourage others to innovate, he participates and helps drive this where he can. Tim likes to say “we innovate to help customers dominate”. Tim summarizes Fishbowl’s Hackathon event, held last Friday and Saturday at Fishbowl Solutions, in the post below.

TimWhat an event! I want to start by thanking Andy Weaver and John Sim (Oracle ACE)! Without their passion, drive, leadership and innovation, this event would not be possible.

What a great event to learn, build the team, interact with others and compete. We also created some innovative solutions that I’m sure at some point will be options to help our customers innovate and extend their WebCenter investments. This year, we had 3 teams that designed and coded the following solutions:

  • InSight Image Processing – Greg Bollom and Kim Negaard

They leveraged the Google Vision API to enable the submission of images to Oracle WebCenter and then leveraged Google Vision to pull metadata back and populate fields within the system. They also added the ability to pull in GPS coordinates from photos (taken from cameras, etc.) and have that metadata and EXIF data populate WebCenter Content.

  • Slack Integation with WebCenter Portal and Content – Andy Weaver, Dan Haugen, Jason Lamon and Jayme Smith

Team collaboration is a key driver for many of our portals, and Slack is one of the most popular collaboration tools. In fact, it is currently valued at $3.6 billion, and there seems to be a rapidly growing market for what they do. The team did some crazy innovation and integration to link Slack to both WebCenter Portal and WebCenter Content. I think the technical learning and sophistication of what they did was probably the most involved and required the most pre-work and effort at the event, and it was so cool to see it actually working.

  • Oracle WebCenter Email NotesJohn Sim (Oracle ACE) Lauren Beatty and me

Valuable corporate content is stored in email, and more value can be obtained from those emails if the content can be tagged and context added in a content management system – Oracle WebCenter. John and Lauren did an awesome job of taking a forwarded email, checking it into WebCenter Content to a workspace, and using related content to build relationships. You can then view the relationships in a graphical way for context. They also created a mobile app to allow you to tag the content on the go and release it for the value of the org.

That's me explaining the email integration with Oracle WebCenter Content.

That’s me explaining the email integration with Oracle WebCenter Content.

Participants voted on the competing solutions, and it ended up being a tie between the Google Insight team and the Email Notes team, but all the solutions truly showed some innovation, sophistication, and completeness of vision. A key aspect of the event for me was how it supported all of Fishbowl’s company values:

Customer First – the solutions we build were based on real-life scenarios our customers have discussed, so this will help us be a better partner for them.

Teamwork – the groups not only worked within their teams, but there was cross team collaboration – Andy Weaver helped John Sim solve an issue he was having, for example.

Intellectual Agility – this goes without saying.

Ambition – people worked late and on the weekend – to learn more, work with the team and have fun.

Continuous Learning – we learned a lot about Slack, cloud, email, etc.

Overall, the annual Hackathon is a unique event that differentiates Fishbowl on so many fronts. From the team building, to the innovation keeping us ahead of the technology curve, to all the learnings – Hackathons truly are a great example of what Fishbowl is all about.

Thanks to all that participated, and remember, let’s continue to innovate so our customers can dominate.

Hackathon weekend at Fishbowl Solutions – Google Vision, Slack, and Email Integrations with Oracle WebCenter

It’s hackathon weekend at Fishbowl Solutions. Fishbowl’s consulting and development teams – the hackers – along with members of the sales and marketing teams join forces to collaborate on and develop new software applications. While the overall goal of the hackathon may be to produce usable software, the event also is a great learning opportunity for participants and results in a lot of fun.

This is Fishbowl’s 4th annual hackathon and previous events have produced “beta” software that eventually evolved into shippable software components that benefited customers. Here are recaps on the 2012 and 2014 events.

This year there were over 16 different ideas, and out of those 3 teams were formed to develop the following:

  • Oracle WebCenter Portal and Slack integration – Slack is a popular collaboration tool for the enterprise that enables members to communicate across channels (specific topics), send direct messages, and drag and drop files for sharing. Integrating Slack with WebCenter Portal brings its popular features and ease of use directly in context of a user’s portal session, ensuring that collaboration is easy and reducing the amount of switching between applications to communicate with others – leaving the portal to send an email, for example.

  • Oracle WebCenter Content and Google Vision integration – This integration would enable the tagging of images upon check-in. The Google Vision API enables applications to understand the content of images by encapsulating machine learning models in an easy to use REST API. Using this technology, images are auto-classified into thousands of categories (e.g., “sailboat”, “lion”, “Eiffel Tower”). For example, you might check in a picture of a knit hat and it would be tagged with xKeywords of “hat”, “knit hat”, and “fashion accessories” without any human tagging. To further automate image discovery, the GSA can be used to map related terms so that searches for “beanie”, “stocking cap”, or “winter hat”, could also return the image. This tagging automation would have great implications for Oracle WebCenter customers that are using it for Digital Asset Management.

WebCenter Content and Google Vision Integration Team – Kim Negaard and Greg Bollom

 

  • Oracle WebCenter Content Email Check in - This integration would enable emails with attachments to be checked in to WebCenter Content automatically. Instead of the user having to check in the email itself, and then relating each attachment to the associated email, which results in additional check in steps, the emails and attachments would be parsed out and sent to a user workspaces in WebCenter. From there, users can tag and validate that the email should be checked in with the appropriate attachments – either from their desktops or mobile device.

The hacking commenced at 3 PM today and will continue until 4 PM on Saturday, April 16th. Each team will then present their developed integration/component, and the other Fishbowl team members will vote on their favorite finished product. Check back on this blog next week to see who won.

Happy hacking!

Taking IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk for a Test Drive

Pas Apicella - Mon, 2016-04-11 04:27

OpenWhisk is a new event-driven platform that lets developers quickly and easily build feature-rich apps that automatically trigger responses to events. To read more about it view the link below. In this simple example we will explore it it's use from IBM Bluemix by returning Todays date.

https://developer.ibm.com/open/openwhisk/

Steps

1. Login to Bluemix using http://bluemix.net

2. Click on "Try OpenWhisk" as shown below


3. Once logged in to the new Bluemix Console you should see a screen as follows


At this point we can only use OpenWhisk from the command line

4. Click on "Configure CLI" button to install it

5. Once installed you can verify it's installed as follows

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk/actions$ wsk --help
usage: wsk [-h] [-v] [--apihost hostname] [--apiversion version]
           {action,activation,namespace,package,rule,trigger,sdk,property,list}
           ...

OpenWhisk is a distributed compute service to add event-driven logic to your
apps.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -v, --verbose         verbose output
  --apihost hostname    whisk API host
  --apiversion version  whisk API version

available commands:
  {action,activation,namespace,package,rule,trigger,sdk,property,list}
    action              work with actions
    activation          work with activations
    namespace           work with namespaces
    package             work with packages
    rule                work with rules
    trigger             work with triggers
    sdk                 work with the SDK
    property            work with whisk properties
    list                list all triggers, actions, and rules in the registry

Learn more at https://developer.ibm.com/openwhisk fork on GitHub
https://github.com/openwhisk. All trademarks are the property of their
respective owners.

6. Now lets Set your OpenWhisk Namespace and Authorization Key. They are provided when you are taken to the install CLI for OpenWhisk, I simply create a script for this as follows

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk$ cat set-namespace-key
wsk property set --auth your-rather-long-key --namespace "pasapi@au1.ibm.com_dev"

Once run you get output as follows

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk$ ./set-namespace-key
ok: whisk auth set
ok: namespace set to pasapi@au1.ibm.com_dev

7.  Now create an OpenWhisk JavaScript function as shown below

todaysdate.js

/**
 * Todays Date as an OpenWhisk action.
 */
function main(params) {
    var currentTime = new Date();
    return {payload:  'Todays date is, ' + currentTime + '!'};
}

8. Create the OpenWhisk action as shown below

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk/actions$ wsk action create todaysdate todaysdate.js
ok: created action todaysdate

9. Invoke the action as shown below

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk/actions$  wsk action invoke todaysdate --blocking --result
{
    "payload": "Todays date is, Mon Apr 11 2016 10:14:56 GMT+0000 (UTC)!"
}

10. Invoke it again this displaying the full Response Object as shown below

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk/actions$  wsk action invoke todaysdate --blocking
ok: invoked todaysdate with id dbb447b65b06433a8b511187011f5715
response:
{
    "result": {
        "payload": "Todays date is, Mon Apr 11 2016 10:19:07 GMT+0000 (UTC)!"
    },
    "status": "success",
    "success": true
}

11. We can view our current actions using a command as follows, you can see we have added the "todaysdate" function

pasapicella@pas-macbook-pro:~/ibm/bluemix/openwhisk/actions$ wsk list
entities in namespace: pasapi@au1.ibm.com_dev
packages
actions
/pasapi@au1.ibm.com_dev/todaysdate                            private
/pasapi@au1.ibm.com_dev/hello                                     private
triggers
rules

12. Now lets return to the Bluemix Web Console and click on "Inspect activity metrics and logs"
Here you can view what you have invoked


There is clearly more to OpenWhisk then just this BUT for more information the IBM Bluemix docs have some more demos to try out.

Tomcat Runtime added to Web Console of IBM Bluemix

Pas Apicella - Thu, 2016-04-07 00:05
I almost always use the tomcat buildpack within IBM Bluemix for my Java based applications. By default IBM bluemix will use the IBM Liberty buildpack for java apps unless you specify otherwise. The buildpacks on Bluemix can be viewed using "cf buildpacks" and the tomcat buildpack is referred to as "java_buildpack"

So to use the tomcat buildpack in a manifest.yml you would target it as follows

applications:
- name: pas-javaapp
  memory: 512M
  instances: 1
  host: pas-javaapp
  domain: mybluemix.net
  path: ./passapp.war
  buildpack: java_buildpack

Now the Web Console catalog for "Runtimes" shows Tomcat for those creating an application from the Console itself. This was done for those who wish to use Tomcat on Bluemix can cleary see it's an option as per the screen shot below and don't have to start with the Liberty Buildpack if they don't wish to do so.

A Designer’s Introduction to Oracle JET

I’m thrilled to be presenting at Collaborate 2016 with my colleague John Sim, on the recently open-sourced Oracle JET! We front-end developers had been seeking a better UI/UX solution from Oracle for quite some time, and they have delivered in a big way.

graphs

Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) is a powerful and intuitive framework that provides a modular toolkit for front-end developers. Rather than re-inventing the wheel, Oracle JET integrates tried and tested open-source frameworks and libraries like jQuery, KnockoutJS, and RequireJS with JET-specific pre-built UI components. Oracle JET is a flexible client-side framework that can integrate with a variety of back-end services. The combination makes for speedy assembly of client-side applications that integrate with Oracle products and services, especially Oracle Cloud services.

libraries

While Java may be the leading language in the industry, JavaScript has quickly gained popularity, especially for developing client-side user interactions. JET was initially built for Oracle in-house use, but Oracle customers and partners continued to ask for JavaScript-based UI development that could interact with existing Oracle platforms. JET provides the capabilities and flexibility of JS UI development, while complying with Oracle standards (internationalization and accessibility, for example) for product delivery.

Part of the beauty of JET, is in its modularity. It allows developers to use as much or as little as they need for a particular project. In addition, different libraries can be incorporated. As JS libraries evolve, and new frameworks are developed, the idea is that they can be incorporated, as well. Oracle JET’s flexibility ensures that it can change with the JS development world.

Our session is targeted at front-end developers looking to leverage their Javascript, CSS3, and HTML5 front- end design skills to create modular single page applications with JET. We’ll include an overview of the JET framework, and discuss the features and benefits along with a quick comparison with ADF (Application Development Framework). We will walk through and explain JET’s integrated open source libraries and frameworks, and then take developers through the creation of a simple JET application using Oracle DoCS REST API.

Please join us at 10:30AM on April 11 in Jasmine D for a dive into this flexible, open-source(!) and exciting new JS framework, and please come see all of the Fishbowl Solutions gang at Booth #1028!

IBM Bluemix NodeRed Demo using Twitter and Telstra SMS API

Pas Apicella - Mon, 2016-03-21 20:48
In this example I integrate Twitter Feed with Telstra SMS API to send an SMS based. It is based on the wrapper application which exposes the Telstra SMS API on Bluemix as per a previous Post.

http://theblasfrompas.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/integrating-telstra-public-sms-api-into.html

It is assumed you have NodeRed NodeJS application running on Bluemix and are at the Editor as shown below.



Steps

1. Drag a "Social -> Twitter" node onto the editor
2. Double click on the Node and ensure you add your twitter credentials and authorize twitter to work with NodeRed itself. Also use a FOR TAG you wish to receive as part of the feed from twitter, in this demo it is "#telstrasmaapi-pas"



3. Once done it will look as follows



4. Drag a "Function -> HTTP Request" onto the editor
5. Double click on the HTTP Request item and add details as shown below.

Method = POST
URL = http://pas-telstrasmsapi.mybluemix.net/telstrasms?to=0411151350&body=tweet sent about telstra SMS API
Name = Any name of your choice

Note: Ensure URL is changed to the mobile number you wish to use and a BODY you wish to send as part of the TEXT.


6. Connect the twitter node to the HTTP Request node as shown below.



7. Click the "Deploy" button
8. Now log into your Twitter account and send a Tweet using the TAG you identified above as shown below. You must use the TAG name you said your looking for in this case "#telstrasmaapi-pas"


9. It should then send an SMS to the identified mobile number you used (Australia Mobiles Only) as shown below.

Something Amiss

Greg Pavlik - Wed, 2016-03-16 23:02
Looks like this curious non-review of the novel Laurus seems to have been referring to "Brahmins" as "Brahman" - I suppose republished to correct the mistake:​Russian Brahman by Alan Jacobs | Articles | First Thingswww.firstthings.com/article/2016/04/russian-brahmanFirst Things​Russian Brahman. by Alan Jacobs April 2016. Laurus by eugene vodolazkin translated by lisa hayden oneworld, 384 pages, $24.99. Eugene Vodolazkin's ...​Russian Brahmin by Alan Jacobs | Articles | First Thingswww.firstthings.com/article/2016/04/russian-brahminFirst Things​Russian Brahmin. by Alan Jacobs April 2016. Laurus by eugene vodolazkin translated by lisa hayden oneworld, 384 pages, $24.99. Eugene Vodolazkin's ...

Whatever his grasp of Hindu concepts, it's obvious Jacobs knows little to nothing about the tradition of Russian yurodivy, which makes this review overall kind of silly at best. Interested readers can refer to the hagiographies of Xenia of Petersburg or Feofil of the Kiev Caves Lavra to become acquainted with some of the conceptual background to the novel, both published by monastery press in Jordanville, NY in English. As a complement the Pavel Lungin movie Ostrov is worth watching carefully - the film is based partly on Feofil, though like the life of St Xenia, it explores the theme of vicarious repentance. (It was not until the third time I saw the film that I fully grasped it - the visuals are stunning and in many respects a distraction.)

All of that aside, what continues to trouble me in general is the fact that most of the reviews of Laurus that I've seen have been oriented toward theological critiques - endorsements or arguments revolving around the reviewer's reading of what the author might want us to think about religion. And yet it is obvious that Vodolazkin did not write a religious apologetic (Jacobs invokes Karamazov, which is simultaneously a religious argument and a humanistic work - but Laurus is anything but the former). Laurus deserves a review as a work of notable - even great - world literature: which is to say first and foremost an exploration of what Vodolazkin is attempting to accomplish as a writer and what that has produced as a work of literature. The lack of serious analysis is particularly puzzling given the devices Vodolazkin uses to deal with language, identity, personality, relationship, and - yes - time. We could do with a few less sermons and a bit more thought.

Fishbowl Solutions at Collaborate 2016: Demos and Discussions on Oracle JET, ADF, Documents Cloud Service, Controlled Document Management and Portals

fbweb_003105
Fishbowl Solutions is looking forward to Collaborate 2016. We have another full list of activities planned, and we are always excited to meet with customers and discuss their initiatives around enterprise content management and portals, the cloud, as well as front-end user design and experience. With the release of Oracle WebCenter 12c back in October, customers are also eager to understand more of what the new version has to offer. Fortunately for WebCenter customers attending Collaborate, Fishbowl Solutions will be covering all these topics across the 5 presentations we will be giving, as well as one-on-discussions in our booth – #1028.

We are also privileged to be joined by two WebCenter customers who will give presentations on their WebCenter use cases. The first customer, ICON plc (www.iconplc.com/) based in Dublin, Ireland, will discuss the process of improving the front-end experience of the WebCenter-based portal they use to manage the clinical trials process.

The second customer is Rosendin Electric (www.rosendin.com) based in San Jose, CA, and they will share how they implemented Fishbowl’s ControlCenter solution to automate the contract management process within WebCenter.

The best part and biggest benefit of attending Collaborate is hearing stories from actual customers, like ICON and Rosendin. Collaborate is truly a user group conference, and hearing case studies on WebCenter deployments, enhancements, integrations, etc., are invaluable for other customers looking to do the same or similar. Less marketing speak and sales pitches, and more learning. As you plan your schedule for Collaborate, look for Session Types denoted as Case Studies.

Here is a preview of what Fishbowl currently has planned for Collaborate 2016.

Booth: 1028

Demos of our WebCenter Portal Solution Accelerator, User Experience (art of the possible) demos of portal and websites, and ControlCenter (controlled document management for WebCenter).

A Few of My Favorite Things for Ultimate Productivity with Oracle WebCenter

As an Oracle WebCenter consultant at Fishbowl Solutions, I have a number of tools that I use that keep me happy and productive. Whether or not you are a software developer, these tools can do the same for you and your business.

 

Slack

slack

Unless you’ve been hibernating for the last year or so, you’ve probably heard of Slack. Haven’t adopted it for your business yet? Here’s why you should.

Slack facilitates contextual, transparent and efficient communication for teams. Slack helps organize your communications into “channels.” Working on a project with Fishbowl Solutions on a WebCenter project? Create a Slack channel and centralize your communications. Quickly share files with the entire team, and “Slackers” can give instant feedback. On the go? Slack goes with you via mobile, of course. Slack provides direct messaging and private channels, too.

Even better, Slack lets you integrate dozens of apps, so that you can centralize all of the services you and your team use. Send calendar reminders and events, search for documents, even start a Skype call. Slack is team communication for the 21st century (with custom emojis!).

 

Twitter and Evernote

Evernote

Twitter and Evernote are my number one/two combo punch for staying on top of all things development. Twitter allows me to keep up to date with the latest news and trends in the web development world. I can peruse dozens of articles every day with information I want to store for later use. I save links to the best articles in my Evernote account, which I have organized into different notebooks for various topics. For example, I’m working on a presentation for Collaborate 16 on Oracle JET, Oracle’s new front-end JavaScript framework. Anything interesting I see on Twitter re: Oracle JET goes right into my Evernote notebook. It makes keeping track of news and information a breeze.

 

Trello

trello

Trello is the application for list-making over-achievers (like me). I organize my to-dos into different “boards”, depending on the project. I have a different board for each project I’m working on at Fishbowl. As I think of something I need to do, I can quickly add it to the appropriate to-do column. When I’m busy with a task, I put it in the “doing” column, and then slide it on over to “done” when finished. I can keep up with my task flow, it’s motivating, visually appealing, and goes with me where I go. Trello also allows me to share tables with others for easy collaboration. Oh, and did I mention I can integrate Trello with Slack (insert custom Slack emoji here)?

Toggl

toggl

Toggl is a fantastic little desktop timer tool my colleague Nate Yates introduced to me. We consultants at Fishbowl Solutions need to keep very accurate timing of the hours we spend on different projects. Toggl allows me to input my different projects, and then just click the appropriate button when I start working on it. It keeps track of my time for the week on each project. It makes keeping track of my time simple, so that I can focus most of my time on creating responsive single-page applications for Fishbowl Solutions customers.

Bluemix CLI Installation and Use on Bluemix PUBLIC

Pas Apicella - Thu, 2016-02-18 04:53
We recently announced a seperate CLI for Bluemix known as "Bluemix CLI". You can find out more about it at the following link

https://www.ng.bluemix.net/docs/cli/reference/bluemix_cli/index.html

The Bluemix command line interface (CLI) provides a set of commands that are grouped by namespace for users to interact with Bluemix. Some Bluemix CLI commands, which are called bx commands, are wrappers of existing cf commands, and others are unique for Bluemix. The information that follows lists all commands that are supported by Bluemix CLI and includes their names, options, usage, prerequisites, descriptions, and examples.

Pas Apicella - Tue, 2016-02-09 17:09
The ability to view usage data from a billing perspective on IBM Bluemix Public is available as a REST based API. To use it follow the steps below.

In order to use the API you have to have the Billing Manager Role or be the Account Owner of the organization as shown below.



Steps

1. Log into the PUBLIC Bluemix region as shown below

pasapicella@Pas-MacBook-Pro:~$ cf login -u pasapi@au1.ibm.com -p ***** -o pasapi@au1.ibm.com -s dev
API endpoint: https://api.ng.bluemix.net
Authenticating...
OK

Targeted org pasapi@au1.ibm.com

Targeted space dev

API endpoint:   https://api.ng.bluemix.net (API version: 2.40.0)
User:           pasapi@au1.ibm.com
Org:            pasapi@au1.ibm.com
Space:          dev

2. List all your Organizations as shown below

pasapicella@Pas-MacBook-Pro:~$ cf orgs
Getting orgs as pasapi@au1.ibm.com...

abentley@au1.ibm.com
shawmale@au1.ibm.com
ANZ-Innovation-Lab
pasapi@au1.ibm.com
NAB Experimentation
Telstra-CustomerA

3. Determine the GUID of the Org you wnat to get metering usage from

pasapicella@Pas-MacBook-Pro:~$ cf org pasapi@au1.ibm.com --guid
e270a605-978e-45fc-9507-00a50dec2469

4. Determine the region name for the PUBLIC instance your connected to as follows

pasapicella@Pas-MacBook-Pro:~$ curl http://mccp.ng.bluemix.net/info
{
  "name": "Bluemix",
  "build": "221004",
  "support": "http://ibm.com",

  "min_cli_version": null,
  "min_recommended_cli_version": null,
  "api_version": "2.40.0",
  "app_ssh_endpoint": "ssh.ng.bluemix.net:2222",
  "app_ssh_host_key_fingerprint": null,
  "app_ssh_oauth_client": "ssh-proxy",
  "routing_endpoint": "https://api.ng.bluemix.net/routing",
  "logging_endpoint": "wss://loggregator.ng.bluemix.net:443",

  "console_endpoint": "https://mccp.ng.bluemix.net/console",
  "region": "us-south"
}

5. Determine the OAUTH token for your connected session as follows

pasapicella@Pas-MacBook-Pro:~$ cf oauth-token
Getting OAuth token...
OK

At this point we are ready to invoke the Billing/Metering API. The format is as follows

Bluemix Endpoint:

https://rated-usage.ng.bluemix.net/v2/metering/organizations/us-south:ORG_ID/YYYY-MM

  1. ORG_ID : Account GUID
  2. YYYY-MM: Year and month for which usage is required
Format as follows:

curl -v -X GET -H "Authorization: bearer {oauth-token}" "https://rated-usage.ng.bluemix.net/v2/metering/organizations/us-south:e270a605-978e-45fc-9507-00a50dec2469/usage/2016-02" | python -m json.tool
 
6. To invoke using curl we should do it as follows

Output:

pasapicella@Pas-MacBook-Pro:~$ curl -v -X GET -H "Authorization: bearer {oauth-token}" "https://rated-usage.ng.bluemix.net/v2/metering/organizations/us-south:e270a605-978e-45fc-9507-00a50dec2469/usage/2016-02" | python -m json.tool

ServletContextAware Controller class with Spring

Pas Apicella - Mon, 2016-01-25 03:55
I rarely need to save state within the Servlet Context via an application scope, but recently I did and here is what your controller class would look like to get access to the ServletConext with Spring. I was using Spring Boot 1.3.2.RELEASE.

In short you implement the "org.springframework.web.context.ServletContextAware" interface as shown below. In this example we retrieve an application scope attribute.
  
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
import org.springframework.boot.json.JsonParser;
import org.springframework.boot.json.JsonParserFactory;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.ui.Model;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;
import org.springframework.web.context.ServletContextAware;

import javax.servlet.ServletContext;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

@Controller
public class CommentatorController implements ServletContextAware
{
private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(CommentatorController.class);
private static final JsonParser parser = JsonParserFactory.getJsonParser();

private ServletContext context;

public void setServletContext(ServletContext servletContext)
{
this.context = servletContext;
}

@RequestMapping(value="/", method = RequestMethod.GET)
public String listTeams (Model model)
{
String jsonString = (String) context.getAttribute("riderData");
List<Rider> riders = new ArrayList<>();

if (jsonString != null)
{
if (jsonString.trim().length() != 0)
{
Map<String, Object> jsonMap = parser.parseMap(jsonString);
List<Object> riderList = (List<Object>) jsonMap.get("Riders");

for (Object rider: riderList)
{
Map m = (Map) rider;
riders.add(
new Rider((String)m.get("RiderId"),
(String)m.get("Cadence"),
(String)m.get("Speed"),
(String)m.get("HeartRate")));
}

//log.info("Riders = " + riders.size());
model.addAttribute("ridercount", riders.size());
}
}
else
{
model.addAttribute("ridercount", 0);
}

model.addAttribute("riders", riders);

return "commentator";

}
}

New Continuous Integration tutorial published

Lynn Munsinger - Mon, 2012-07-02 09:44
Hot off the press – a new continuous integration tutorial. It’s really not just about continuous integration, though! You’ll find it useful even if you aren’t using a continuous integration server like Hudson. It’s useful if you are doing any part of the scenario it documents: Setting up Team Productivity Center for your team and [...]

Advanced ADF eCourse, Part Deux

Lynn Munsinger - Tue, 2012-06-19 15:11
In February, we published the first in a series of FREE(!) online advanced ADF training: http://tinyurl.com/advadf-part1 The response to that course has been overwhelmingly positive as more and more people are moving past the evaluation/prototype stages with ADF and looking for more advanced topics. I’m pleased to relay the good news that the 2nd part [...]

Fun with Hudson, Part 1.1

Lynn Munsinger - Tue, 2012-06-05 09:19
Earlier I posted that I had used the following zip command in the ‘execute shell’ action for my Hudson build job: zip -r $WORKSPACE/builds/$JOB_NAME-$BUILD_NUMBER * -x ‘*/.svn/*’ -x ‘*builds/*’ This zips up the content of the exported source, so that I can send it on to team members who need the source of each build [...]

New ADF Insider on Layouts

Lynn Munsinger - Mon, 2012-03-26 13:22
I’ve published an ADF Insider session that helps de-mystify the ADF Faces components and how to work with them (and not against them), when building ADF applications. There’s also some great information on building ADF prototypes. Take a look here: http://download.oracle.com/otn_hosted_doc/jdeveloper/11gdemos/layouts/layouts.html
