Over the last 4 months I've been working with some of my US friends to create a eLearning version of the PTS SaaS extending PaaS workshop I co-wrote....., Well the time has come and we've published the first 4 eLearning seminars, and I'm sure there will be more coming.
Check em out and let me know what you think and what other topics need to be covered.
If your generating SOAP proxies using Apache Axis/2 you may find yourself hitting strange errors.. Whats even stranger is that you can generate proxies using JDeveloper and it works fine in tooling like SOAPUI.. Well help is at hand..
The most common error is
IWAB0399E Error in generating Java from WSDL: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unknown element _value
I'm not sure if this is a bug in Fusion Sales Clouds base tech (ADFBC SDOs) or a bug in Apache Axis but there is a workaround and engineering are looking into this.
For a workaround you have two options
- Use adb binding and set the flag –Eosv to turn off strict validation.
- Use JDK xjc command to generate the JAXB classes:
e.g. xjs -wsdl http://<salescloudsoapendpoint/opptyMgmtOpportunities/OpportunityService?WSDL
Enjoy and let me know if this works for you :-)
Good resources from the UX Team
If you’re building or integrating the Oracle Applications Cloud or building SaaS through PaaS, use the User Experience Rapid Development Kit laid out here to get the guidance you need and point you to the right tools to use.
The Oracle Applications User Experience team has released a User Experience Rapid Development Kit on simplified user interface (UI), the same user experience design in Oracle Applications Cloud release 8. The kit is designed to help Oracle ADF developers get up to speed quickly so they can start designing and building the Oracle Applications Cloud simplified UIs, which are the tablet-friendly UIs for Oracle Sales Cloud and Oracle HCM Cloud, in a matter of hours.
The User Experience Rapid Development Kit contains the following tools:
- Coded ADF page templates.
- Coding tips from Oracle’s developers.
- ADF screen overlays showing the use of components in the simplified UI.
- An eBook on user experience (UX) design patterns and guidelines(right), and example wireframe stencils of page types and components in Microsoft Visio and Balsamiq Mockups formats.
- Sample wireframe of a simplified UI page flow.
How would you like to get started?

Full Disclosure I received this from an email from Apps Developer Relations but its soooo good I wanted to share it with all. Bottom line if your integrating your product/package/system with Sales Cloud after you've perused the standard documentation (which we are evolving rapidly) this is a treasure trove of articles/blogs/viewlets you can use..
Obviously use this in conjunction with the standard Oracle Cloud Documentation (http://docs.oracle.com/cloud/latest/salescs_gs/index.html)
