CI/CD Automation for Oracle with Visual Builder Studio

Ci/Cd Automation for Oracle with Visual Builder Studio


The latest version of Oracle Visual Builder Studio adds the capability of automating the continuous deployment of Integrations developed within Oracle Integration across different instances to the next. It will allow teams to easily make changes to integrations available from their development instances to their production and test instances. In this blog, we’ll demonstrate how to achieve this.

Oracle Integration is a cloud-based service that allows you to combine data from multiple sources and create data APIs for other applications. For instance, many users creating user interfaces using Oracle Visual Builder rely on Oracle Integration to get the data displayed in the UI. Oracle Integration has adapters that allow you to connect and pull information from multiple systems easily.

Oracle Integration provides a web-based interface that lets developers create visually appealing integrations and can manage versions of these integrations. Suppose you want to streamline the process of moving integrations across instances (from development to production). In that case, Oracle Visual Builder provides a user-friendly solution that makes it easier to transfer and import for integrations.

Automating Integration of CI/CD

As we all know Oracle Visual Builder is a cloud-based software development platform as a Service and an environment hosted to develop your application infrastructure (PaaS). It is an open-source technology that is based on standards for developing collaboratively on, developing and deployment of Oracle Cloud applications.

Oracle has added some Oracle integration features to Visual Builder Studio in the Build and Environments sections. You can create different environments in the environment section and associate them with integrated cloud instances. We will scan the tenancy to find instances and give an identifier to other instances within other cloud Tenancies.

Once your environments are set, you can begin using the built steps they have included. You’ll find steps for exporting and import integrations on the Oracle Integration menu. In both cases, you’ll be pointed towards an environment.

In the Export Integration section, you’ll need to input the integration’s name and the version you’d like to export. A search box will assist you to locate this information by contacting your integration instance to find an inventory of integrations currently running there. In this integration’s version, you can utilize a build job parameter that allows you to reuse this step over several variations of your integration.

Following the export process, it is recommended to save the archive artifact after-build procedure to store the exported file for future use.

The import integration process will use a file you saved during the export task. Configure this in the section before building with a copy artifact. The import process will load it into the environment that you’ve specified. Specifying whether you’d like to enable the integration after the successful import is also possible.

Significant Advantages of Using Oracle Visual Builder 

  • Agility: It can construct the responsive software in just 24 hours, host it in the cloud, and even deploy it with single click highlights. The capability of this technology to adapt is something extraordinary. 

  • Secure: Get access to highly secure and Oracle-hosted infrastructure. 

  • Versatile: Gives you the ability to brand and customize the app’s user interface using the standard web developer toolkit. Making it one of the best visual builders of all time. 

We hope you have learned how to automate the process of taking the latest version of an integration that we created in our development environment before deploying it on another server.
