Setting up your project
Next you need to specify a local target. It's most likely a simple WLS installation you have to refer to. So I took what I have and pointed the wizard to my 11gR1 (10.3.5) install for that. I did somehow expect to be able to select a target domain with this dialog, too. But it was not asking for that. Some other weird stuff happened, and I am not sure if it is meant to work like this for the final version what probably will be out in the next OEPE (188.8.131.52 ?).
Your first Oracle Java Cloud App
Access logs and control panel
You can access the control panel of your cloud in the same way as you can directly jump to online log viewers for your application and the java service.
This is integrated with the server panel and you can simply "open" the dialog.
It will also be possible to test your applications before deployment with integrated whitelist scans. The whitelist tool can be called explicitly on a project (on demand scans to highlight coding violations). If configured with the full Cloud SDK correctly it will also support as-you-type validation, project build validation. You will see that the errors are reported in application source, the Problems view, and a new Whitelist violations view.
Some classes that OEPE is missing in my dilettantish setup contain the Name Niviaq in it. According to google this is the East Kalaattisit name for "cloud". You hardly find any references to details on the net. Only some job offers in the bay-area telling your, that
...pre-packaged PaaS enablement offerings that we provide such as Nuviaq ...I'm not sure why Oracle is releasing OEPE and it's obviously unusable Public Cloud features at this state. It makes me believe, that it could be a sign of a very tough timeline all related projects have to fulfill. The JDeveloper and NetBeans integration is announced and I personally am waiting for the Cloud SDK. So, let's stay hungry and foolish for clouds ;)
