According to the statement of the company, the API service will be available through ‘Oracle Mobile Cloud Service’ platform, which an ambitious cloud computing platform of the company. “Initially, this project will focus on the internal IT organizations that will be allowed to set up their BaaS platforms to integrate mobile computing applications with multiple back end systems that run on the Oracle software”, said Suhas Uliyar, the vice president Mobile Strategy Product Management at Oracle Corporation.
It was further elaborated by the Vice President Mr. Suhas that along with this visionary strategy, Oracle will develop its own cloud services that will allow the developers to access Oracle Mobile Cloud Service platform for purchasing the suitable APIs for their mobile application development or can place orders for specific APIs on this innovative cloud computing service. “This mobile platform of Oracle would take the concept of BaaS to new heights in the domain of cloud computing based application development” he added.
While speaking about the technical aspects of this new idea, Mr. Suhas told the audience that the developers would be able to access Oracle SOA services to connect to back-end enterprise application via the API gateway of Oracle. The developers can use both the RESTful APIs and Java Script Object Notation JSON to get access to the Oracle SOA service. The Oracle’s API gateway will manage different aspects of accessing the service and security, such as – authentication, authorization, security and encryption of the data et cetera.
This new idea of selling APIs online would allow the developers to take advantages of Oracle Mobile Application Development Framework ADF to develop mobile applications by using HTML5 and Java. In Suhas words, “Oracle Mobile Cloud Service Platform is the first step towards activating the BYOT (Bring Your Own Toolkit) in the clouds”. And, this new idea will also help to develop a federated service that will run both in the cloud and on the premises in near future.
