Oracle Fusion: Trubix Training Roadmap

Oracle Fusion blog topics include:
  • Oracle Fusion: Java
  • Oracle Fusion: Internet Development Tools
  • Oracle Fusion: JDeveloper 10gR3
  • Oracle Fusion: Trubix Training Roadmap
  • Oracle Fusion: Key Components
  • Oracle Fusion: The Oracle Fusion Technical Platform

If you are going to be working with Oracle applications in the future, Oracle Fusion is in your future as well. Using Java and open standards it is important to define a set of best practices and pick a solid architecture and framework. The nice thing is Oracle Fusion does this for you.
If you are going to go down the Oracle Fusion path, it is important you take the right training and in the right order. Generic training companies are not going to provide the correct Oracle perspective to make sure you are successful with Oracle Fusion when you need to implement it in an Oracle applications environment. Our Oracle Fusion training is designed to allow you to move into an Oracle Fusion development environment. Each class is customized heavily for an Oracle applications environment.

The base foundation of Oracle Fusion is Oracle JDeveloper. Oracle Fusion applications are written in Oracle JDeveloper. Oracle JDeveloper is not required but it greatly facilitates Oracle features and functionality. One question is, what skill set does someone need to modify Oracle Fusion applications? The answer is, "it depends". Oracle Fusion tools will hide some of the complexity of the Oracle Fusion Technology Platform. However, dependent on the type of change or addition being made a developer may need to have a strong background in J2EE, Web Services, SOA, SOAP, XML, ADF, etc.

If someone is currently modifying Oracle, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Retek and JD Edwards applications they need to start considering how those enhancements are going to roll into future Oracle Fusion products. One way to minimize enhancements to existing systems is to organize them so they can be integrated as a Web Service in Oracle Fusion applications.
The current Trubix Oracle Fusion Training Road Map will change over time as Oracle Fusion evolves.
Trubix Oracle Fusion Training Road Map:
  • Oracle Java Development using JDeveloper
  • Oracle Building J2EE applications using ADF
  • Introduction to Web Services using Oracle
  • Introduction to SOA
  • Introduction to Oracle XML
  • Advanced Oracle XML DB
  • Top Link

There seems to be some conFusion on the Fusion initiatives at Oracle. To clear up a few of them:
  • Oracle Fusion is the integration of Oracle applications (E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, Siebel, ...) into a set of modular next generation applications based on industry standards. This set of next-generation applications will be based on the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with loosely coupled software components organized by Business Process Execution Language (BPEL).
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware is the technical platform implemented with SOA using J2EE, Web Services, ADF, XML, etc.
  • Oracle Fusion Architecture is the organizational blueprint that ties together the Oracle applications, middleware platform and grid technology.

It is important that this Oracle Fusion Training Road Map is very involved and is going to take time to develop these skills. Oracle JDeveloper and the Oracle Application Server are key foundations for all of these classes. With Oracle Fusion Middleware being implemented with open-standard components, other webservers such as WebSphere and WebLogic can be used. If someone started with Eclipse and has been imprinted, they can still use Eclipse since Oracle is throwing a lot of support for Eclipse.

An important point to understand is that Oracle Fusion is an evolutionary process not a mutation process. Software as a service is going to continue to gain momentum. Oracle Fusion is part of this natural evolution of the softwware industry. Remember everything on this planet that does not evolve becomes extinct.

I look forward to your Fusion blogs. I've seen you present and I think you are one of the top presenters in the Oracle space. I hope you give more presentations at the next conference. Your presentation on Flashback Technology at Oracle World and your Build a RAC system in one day were two great presentations. You should offer them again.
Keep up the great work!
We need more on understanding Oracle Fusion. The more I read about Fusion on OTN the more confused I get.

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
