Cloud-Based-App-Development-Is-Brought-To-Business-Users-By-Oracle-Visual-Code-300x129 Cloud-Based App Development Is Brought To Business Users By Oracle Visual CodeOracle is taking a swing at the Salesforce in the application department based on a cloud with the Project Visual Code Platform. For building extensions for existing applications or standalone applications the low-code development provides the platform. Geared to “citizen developers,” Visual Code is a straight opponent to the Salesforce Lightning component-based development platform.


With users able to integrate with third-party data from a source like Google Maps or Facebook the advantage of visual code over Lightning is in extending applications said Bill Pataky, vice president of mobile development and developer tools at Oracle. Oracle Cloud Marketplace’s pre-built components can be used to create applications which can be enhanced with a little use of JavaScript coding. Pataky said business users to meet the needs when they come up without depending on in IT is the target. A UI design system, a business object for building applications over REST based service, a UI component architecture and a visual tool for building and hosting mobile and web based applications. Back-end data access can be set and components can be dragged onto the UI. Pataky doesn’t praise the use of a smartphone but applications can be built on any device with a browser.
