Oracle's Java as a Service

I've been in San Francisco at Oracle Open World 2013 for the past few days.  It's been a great conference so far with some interesting sessions, some America's Cup racing, and lots of exhibitors to see.

One of the most interesting items to be announced by Oracle at Open World this year was their new Cloud offerings.  They've been talking a lot about the cloud for the past couple of years but it seems this year they are finally releasing some interesting products based on the cloud.

Not only do they now have an Infrastructure as a Service offering, much like Amzaon's EC2 or Microsoft Azure, but they now have a Database as a Service offering and a Java as a Service offering.

This being a Java-focused blog, the Java as a Service product is what I found most interesting and I was actually able to attend a Hands-On-Lab that demonstrated the service.  The usage is very simple, it basically exposes a managed Weblogic Server for you to deploy to.  If you want to have fine-grained control over the environment, this isn't for you, as the only control you have is what you can accomplish via the Weblogic Management Console and the interface to the JaaS itself.

As far as being able to quickly get a application up there and running, it couldn't be simpler however.  The lab demonstrated 3 different ways to do it, one with an IDE plugin (we used Eclipse, I believe there are others), one via the command line, and one via Maven.  You can also deploy and undeploy using the Weblogic console itself.

Most likely you will need more than a JaaS instance if you wanted to do anything worthwhile, for instance you will probably want a database for your application and you will need to use their DBaaS for that, but it does let you easily deploy and run Java applications (including ADF applications!) to the cloud.
