Implementing Oracle API Platform Cloud Service

By: Andrew Bell, Sander Rensen, Luis Weir, Phil Wilkins

Overview of this book

Implementing Oracle API Platform Cloud Service moves from theory to practice using the newest Oracle API management platform. This critical new platform for Oracle developers allows you to interface the complex array of services your clients expect in the modern world. First, you'll learn about Oracle’s new platform and get an overview of it, then you'll see a use case showing the functionality and use of this new platform for Oracle customers. Next, you’ll see the power of Apiary and begin designing your own APIs. From there, you’ll build and run microservices and set up the Oracle API gateways. Moving on, you’ll discover how to customize the developer portal and publish your own APIs. You’ll spend time looking at configuration management on the new platform, and implementing the Oauth 2.0 policy, as well as custom policies. The latest finance modules from Oracle will be examined, with some of the third party alternatives in sight as well. This broad-scoped book completes your journey with a clear examination of how to transition APIs from Oracle API Management 12c to the new Oracle API Platform, so that you can step into the future confidently.

Structuring the design approach

To move forward, MRA determined that they need to adopt some strategic approaches and design models. In doing this, MRA are trying to ensure that industry good practices get incorporated into the future IT landscape.

To this end, MRA looked at several different reference architectures such as IT Strategies from Oracle and Open Modern Software Architecture Project (http://OMESA.io). As OMESA reflects the current thinking and is relatively lightweight, it recognizes the fact that there is an existing IT environment that needs to be accommodated. OMESA is also vendor agnostic.
