Hi guys, Sreerag Nampoothiri here and this blog is a comprehensive account about the tool Oracle Policy Automation (OPA). I have been blogging since 2010 and my first blog SparklingSpur, is a technology blog. I even started couple of android related blogs to write about rooting, how-to’s , game and app reviews and mainly about the newly releasing phones. I love tech related things and write about them, share them among friends and discuss about them.
Now, I am a professional Software Engineer and it’s been 3+ yrs since I have entered the corporate world. Every now and then I tried updating the blogs and it didn’t really worked out. Sometimes the work get into the way and sometimes something personal.
I was a Java Developer in my office and there comes a new technology called OPA and Guess what? I am an OPA Developer now. Oracle Policy Automation is a great tool to work with and there is a lot! I mean it A LOT of opportunity out there waiting for you. Simply speaking its just a policy automation tool that is used to reduce the hectic job of analysing policy statements for each application that comes to the office. I know you are confused. Forget it! I will be teaching you in detail soon.
It doesn’t mean that OPA doesn’t have any technical aspect to it. It uses JAVA and .NET if you want to make some changes in the default runtime of the product or the creating your own addons for making the tool process like how you wanted to be.
This technology is really easy to learn, understand and implement. It will take only a couple of hours to understand the whole concept and couple of weeks for the technical aspect of the whole thing. I will be guiding you through that in parallel to what I am learning. I take this opportunity to make my knowledge in OPA better and also share the world what I am learning here.
OK. Here is the strategy. I will try to update everyday one post and you can go through it understand it and implement it. And if you have any doubts you can always mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be answering to the questions asap. There will be video tutorials that is coming soon. In order to get notification of what is going on please do subscribe via email so that you won’t miss your daily dose of OPA lesson.
One more thing, OPA is not a complete technical oriented tool. It has more functional and business elements incorporated into it so, it is very good tool for people who are more inclined towards the non-technical jobs. Also you will find it very interesting to learn about how business works in the IT field. After coming to OPA I had a epiphany ‘its not all about coding’. So guys, all the best. Please feel free to contact me at any time via email. Thank you for visiting OPATutorials.com.
