In the May Update, Developer Cloud Service adds over 30 new features including; a new top-level feature to track Releases, tools to provision Oracle Cloud services in Builds, new webhooks for external build systems, enhancements to Agile tools, and language aware Code Search.
Organize Developer Cloud Service project artifacts into software releases through the new top level Releases feature. Releases can associate git repositories, branches, and tags, Maven artifacts, build artifacts, wiki pages, and more. Using releases makes it easy to track the progress, version, clone, and distribute related artifacts.
PSMcli Tools in Build
Oracle PaaS Service Manager (PSM) provides a command line interface (CLI) with which you can manage the lifecycle of various services in Oracle Public Cloud. The PSMcli is now integrated into the DevCS build tools which enables you to incorporate new administrative and provisioning operations for Oracle PaaS services into your build pipelines. The PSMcli build plugin also allows you to use Oracle Stack Manager. More interesting end to end build pipeline flows are possible through PSM such as; checkout a stack template file from git, provision a stack consisting of JCS and Database, compile the application code, deploy the app code to the new stack, run tests, tear down the stack environment.
Epics and User Stories in Agile
Epics and User Stories are now supported as Issue types and tracked appropriately in Agile Sprints and Burndown Charts.
Webhooks for External Jenkins & Hudson
Enhanced webhooks for external Jenkins and Hudson now support both inbound and outbound communication from Developer Cloud Service projects. Configure outbound git triggers to invoke build jobs on external Jenkins servers. Setup inbound notifications from Jenkins or Hudson so that build statuses are properly reflected in the Project Activity Stream.
