In a previous series of blog posts titled Exploring Github DockerHub and OCCS I walked through how to setup your development environment, install Docker, create a git project, link Docker Hub and GitHub accounts, trigger a build of a docker image on Docker Hub and then deploy and run the docker image using the Oracle Container Cloud Service.
In this blog I wanted to do something similar but this time focus on a more simplified process so that a less technical user could follow the steps without the need for a development environment. The way I have structured this post mans that you can follow every step using a web browser. I have attempted to focus more on consuming the dockerised application that a developer has already built. For the purpose of this exercise I am using the example Medical Records application that some of you may be familiar with from some of my previous blog posts. For those not familiar with the application, it consists of a Node.js web application that interacts with a MongoDB database. The web application surfaces a number of REST APIs (eg Get / POST Patient , GET / POST Physician, GET/POST Observations etc), and uses Swagger UI so that the REST APIs can be quickly interacted with by the end user.
If you want to follow the steps in this blog post you will need a login for GitHub and Docker Hub and also a subscription or trial account for the Oracle Cloud in order to use the Oracle Container Service Classic (OCCS). Read the complete article here.
