I develop sample applications pretty often. I try out some ideas, play with some techniques and share the result of my investigations with my colleagues and blog readers by the means of sample applications. When someone wants to see how the technique was implemented they just look into the source code and that’s enough to get the idea. But if they want to see how it actually works and play with it, they need to find the right version of JDeveloper, start it, run the sample application and, probably, dance a little with a tambourine to get it working. Too complicated and not fun. What would be fun is to have a lightweight Docker container with deployed sample application which everyone can easily run on their Docker environment. In this post I am going to show what I did to create a preconfigured docker-image-template which I will use to create images with deployed sample applications.
Since the key is to have a lightweight container and since my sample ADF applications rarely go beyond essentials functionality I decided to create a Docker container running Tomcat with ADF Essentials on top of that.
So, let’s start: 1. Pull and run Tomcat image from Docker hub. Read the complete article here.
