About the Interfaces to Oracle Java Cloud Service

The entire Oracle Java Cloud Service environment, including the WebLogic domain and cluster, and the storage volumes and network settings, is visible and customizable. The following table summarizes the key interfaces to Oracle Java Cloud Service:

Type of Access Description More Information

Web browser

Use the Oracle Java Cloud Service Console to create service instances, and to perform lifecycle operations such as backup, restore, and patch. You can also scale a service instance using the same console.

Load Balancer Console

If load balancing is enabled for an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you can use the web console of the load balancer to configure it.

REST API

Use REST API calls to manage Oracle Java Cloud Service from a terminal, script, or custom program.

Oracle Cloud Stack Manager

Use Oracle Cloud Stack to automate the provisioning of multiple cloud services as a single unit, called a stack. Oracle Cloud Stack includes a template to create both Oracle Java Cloud Service and Oracle Database Cloud Service instances in a single operation.

Secure Shell (SSH)

Access the nodes of an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance through SSH.

After you use SSH to access a node, you can run WLST and other command-line applications within the node.

Virtual Network Computing (VNC)

Remotely access the graphical desktop of a node in an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance with a combination of VNC client and SSH tunnel.

Connect to a Node with VNC

WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST)

Use WLST commands locally or remotely, in online or offline mode.

  • To use WLST commands locally, use SSH to connect to the node on which the Administration Server is running. Then, run the WLST commands from within the node.

  • To use WLST commands remotely, connect to the administration console through port 7002 (if enabled) or create an SSH tunnel to the node. Then, run the WLST commands remotely from your computer against the service instance.

Use WLST to Administer a Service Instance

Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

Deploy applications to an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance from an IDE such as Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse.

Oracle Developer Cloud Service (Not available on Oracle Cloud at Customer)

Oracle Java Cloud Service comes with a complimentary instance of Oracle Developer Cloud Service, which is a cloud-based software development and collaboration platform. It provides source control, issue tracking and continuous integration capabilities. You can use Oracle Developer Cloud Service to automate the deployment of applications to Oracle Java Cloud Service.

Using Oracle Developer Cloud Service

Note:

You provide a user name and password for the WebLogic Administrator when you create an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance. By default, the credentials used to access the WebLogic Server Administration Console and WLST are also used to access the Fusion Middleware Control and the Oracle Traffic Director console.
