Oracle Cloud Service enables you to use the cloud to develop, collaborate, and deploy your OEPE applications from one central source.
Currently OEPE supports only the Java Cloud Service, which includes the WebLogic server, and optional Oracle Cloud database services

To add an Oracle Cloud Service to your application use the Cloud view, from the Java EE perspective.
To add a Cloud Service:
In the OEPE application Cloud view, choose Connect. The Oracle Cloud dialog appears, as shown in Figure 5-1.
Enter the details in the dialog fields. When you sign up for an Oracle Cloud Service, the configuration details are emailed to you.
Click Test Connection. You can also test with Perform whitelist scan prior to publish. This does a local test to determine if your application deploys successfully to Oracle Cloud.
Add and manage your cloud services using the Cloud view. Right clicking from the Cloud node gives you options to open your browser-based cloud portals, as well as Cloud connection properties, as shown in Figure 5-2 and Figure 5-3.
Right-clicking from your service node gives you access to a variety of features including Service Instances, Service Jobs, and the Service web-based console, as shown in Figure 5-4. For more information see Viewing the Java Cloud Service Jobs Log, and Viewing the Java Cloud Service Instance Log.
With the Oracle Java Cloud Service you can manage the backend infrastructure of your OEPE applications without exposing the runtime to its service users. When you sign up for the Java Oracle Cloud Service, you get a deployment target for your OEPE application using a set of Java EE release 5, Java EE release 6, and Oracle WebLogic Server capabilities, in addition to a My Services web-based interface to manage your cloud tools.
For more information on the Java Cloud Service see,
To add Java Cloud Service to your OEPE application:
Subscribe to the Java Cloud Service at
http://cloud.oracle.com. You will get an email with the service details, which you will need to configure your OEPE application for the cloud.
Open your application.
Follow the steps in Adding Your Oracle Cloud Services.
The Oracle Java Cloud Service Jobs log, shown in Figure 5-5, provides comprehensive information on the jobs being executed by the Java Cloud Service, including Id, status, duration, and nature of your operation.
To view the Oracle Java Cloud Service - Jobs log:
Right-click your service in the Servers view and select Java Cloud Service Instance Log.
You can filter jobs shown in the window by clicking the Filter icon in the toolbar to open the Jobs Filter, shown in Figure 5-6.
The Oracle Java Cloud Service Instance log provides detail on the performance of your services, as shown in Figure 5-7.
To view the Oracle Java Cloud Service Jobs log:
Right-click your service in the Servers view and select Java Cloud Service Jobs.
You can select the Filter icon in the toolbar to filter service instances using the Events Filter dialog, shown in Figure 5-8.
The whitelist scan feature enables you to locally ensure that your application is valid for deployment to Oracle Cloud. Whitelist scanning can be invoked in three ways:
As you Type whitelist scan: Occurs on source files that are currently open in the workspace, for example, Java class, or JSF/JSP pages.
Whitelist Builder: When you select File > Save, the Whitelist Builder validates all files in the project, and reports violations in the Markers View, Problems View, and Whitelist Problems View.
On Demand whitelist scan: To perform an on demand whitelist scan, right-click the project in the Project Explorer and select Oracle Cloud Whitelist Scan. An On Demand whitelist scan adds an additional level of scanning to everything on the project build path, for example, jar files. This type of scan is also automatically performed before deployment. Because it is a more expansive operation, it does not occur automatically during file operations like edit, save, or build.
OEPE enables you to deploy your project to Oracle Cloud or Oracle WLS, depending on your preference.
To deploy to Oracle Cloud, use one of the following methods:
Right-click the project you want to deploy, and select Run As > Run on Server. Then select Oracle Cloud on the Run on Server page and click Finish.
Right-click the Oracle Cloud configuration in the Servers view and select Add and Remove to add the project you want to deploy to Oracle Cloud.
