Thanks to the collaboration of several engineering groups at CERN, three production systems now make use of ORDS’s REST capabilities. These are CERN's access-management and distribution system, CERN’s system for handling digital documents, and the system CERN uses for car sharing). We carried out much work in this area in 2017, particularly in relation to setup automation, configuration, and upgrading the various ORDS installations.
The results of our evaluation of Oracle JET have been summarised in an extended post by one of the CERN openlab summer students on the blog of the CERN IT department’s group for database services. Regarding OMC, CERN engineers primarily focused efforts on extending capabilities related to the monitoring of application performance. Valuable feedback was compiled in a range of reports, with results being discussed with Oracle engineers and product managers at the Oracle Open World 2017 event in October.
