TL;DR I will show you that the MedRec sample application for WebLogic can be used for deploying Java artifacts and configuring WebLogic resources on first boot of a WebLogic Docker image. We can do this with a 5 line Dockerfile and a script which customises the WebLogic domain. This example is available to play with on Github at this link.

In previous blogs, we showed how to run WebLogic with Java Applications on Docker both locally and on Oracle Container Cloud Service. We achieved this by extending the official WebLogic image from Oracle Container Registry either directly or by linking up the WebLogic autodeploy directory from another container to deploy our applications.

In this article we are going to:

· Discuss what the official WebLogic image does on first-boot followed by options for configuring custom WebLogic resources in a WebLogic Docker Container at the first-boot stage.

· Show an end-to-end example of Application Deployment and WebLogic Configuration using the MedRec Sample Application running on WebLogic in a Docker container

· Discuss the drawbacks of data that is managed outside of containers. We will show that we can specifically seed the data for the MedRec application outside Docker and discuss how it could be improved to better suit the Docker deployment models. Read the complete article here.

In an earlier article, I discussed the creation of a generic Docker Container Image that runs any Node.JS application based on sources for that application on GitHub. When the container is started, the GitHub URL is passed in as a parameter and the container will download the sources and run the application. Using this generic image, you can your Node application everywhere you can run a Docker container. One of the places where you can run a Docker Container is the Oracle Container Cloud Service (OCCS) – a service that offers a platform for managing your container landscape. In this article, I will show how I used OCCS to run my generic Docker image for running Node application and how I configured the service to run a specific Node application from GitHub.

Getting started with OCCS is described very well in an article by my colleague Luc Gorissen on this same blog: Docker, WebLogic Image on Oracle Container Cloud Service. I used his article to get started myself.

The steps are:

  • create OCCS Service instance
  • configure OCCS instance (with Docker container image registry)
  • Create a Service for the desired container image (the generic Node application runner) – this includes configuring the Docker container parameters such as port mapping and environment variables
  • Deploy the Service (run a container instance)
  • Check the deployment (status, logs, assigned public IP)
  • Test the deployment – check if the Node application is indeed available
Create OCCS Service instance

Assuming you have an Oracle Public Cloud account with a subscription to OCCS. Go to the Dashboard for OCCS. Click on Create Service. Read the complete article here.



Two of my favorite Oracle Cloud services are the Exadata Express Cloud Service (Exadata Express) and the Application Container Cloud Service (ACCS). Exadata Express is a fully managed Oracle Database service at an entry-level price point for small to medium sized data and ACCS is an easy way to deploy apps in Docker containers. In this post, I’ll demonstrate how to connect these two services at the most basic level.
What do I mean by “the most basic level”? First, I’m not going to demonstrate how to create an Oracle Cloud account with these two services – I’ll assume you’ve already done that. Also, the demo app in this post will be minimalistic. Normally, I might use the Developer Cloud Service to create a Git repo with an automated build process – not here. This post will focus only on what’s needed to get these two services connected.


Create test app

Create a new directory named connection-test-app and add the following two files. Read the complete article here.

There’s a few examples on the net about how to deploy a JET app to Application Container Cloud. All of these seem to either create an express app and then add oracle code to it later (eliminating the benefit of using grunt serve) or taking the compiled web folder and putting it into a new express application (making your devops or build automation slightly more painful). Let me show you an alternative.

This uses the basic http module in Node to create a very simple http server to serve our JET code from the web directory. If you run this using node server.js you should see your node app running, just like if you used grunt serve. Read the complete article here.
