Oracle is embracing Docker – just like many other companies – as the de-facto standard in Container technologies. It has resulted in the certification of various Oracle products for running in Docker containers and even Oracle supported Docker images are available. Furthermore, Oracle offers 2 Cloud Service around containers: the Container Cloud Service is a generic service that offers a platform for running your containers. Next to that, Oracle offers the Application Container Cloud Service that is targeted to running Java SE, Node.JS, php and python applications. The Application Container Cloud Service is left out-of-scope.
This blog series shows how to get started with WebLogic and Docker – in 3 different Clouds:
- Docker and the Oracle Images
- Create and run a WebLogic Docker Image on a local machine and upload the WebLogic Docker Image into the Docker Hub registry
- WebLogic Docker Container on Oracle Container Cloud Service
- WebLogic Docker Container on Microsoft Azure Container Service
- WebLogic Docker Container on Amazon EC2 Container Service
All cases describe the minimal steps to get a WebLogic container up and running: nothing fancy, very minimalistic, just to get you going.
The approach for the Cloud use cases is similar for all 3 Cloud providers:
- get your container platform up and running (the ‘Container Service’ in the cloud)
- start a WebLogic container from the image that we have first put on Docker Hub
Some findings of the work done can be found at the bottom of this article. Read the complete article here.
