Oracle Java Cloud Upgrade to 12.2.1.2

We finished upgrade of our production Oracle Java Cloud instance to 12.2.1.2. This allows us to use new ADF BC REST features (16.5.2 What You May Need to Know About Versioning the ADF REST Framework).

Upgrade to newer version in Oracle Cloud is similar to on-premise upgrade. We need to create new service instance for software release 12.2.1.2 and later re-deploy our app, re-configure data source and setup security mappings:


12.2.1.2 instance is created in same way as it was before:


Instance is created in three simple steps, last step is just to review configuration:


Give it some 10 minutes to initialize:


And 12.2.1.2 environment is initialized - very simple and much more easier than to configure it by yourself on premise:


We can verify in Cloud EM - JRF 12.2.1.2 is installed, this means it includes full ADF 12.2.1.2 support:

Hi Andrejus,

I created a DB Cloud service, now when I try to create Instance for JCS, I get following error:

There are no Oracle Database Cloud Service instances available for Service Level: Oracle Java Cloud Service.

have you experienced issue like this? or am I missing any step.

Yes, I remember such issue. If I'm not wrong - you need to choose certain DB version and DB type (there was a hint - supported for Java Service). Also make sure both DB and Java are under same domain.

Regards,
Andrejus

Got the issue, I didnt opted for DB Backup intially, so I think its mandatory to setup a DB with backup. Now i can go ahead with JCS.

Thanks

Yes, exactly - this was the issue. You must use backup for DB.
