Two of my favorite Oracle Cloud services are Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service (Exadata Express) and Oracle Application Container Cloud. Exadata Express is a fully managed Oracle Database service at an entry-level price point for small-to-medium-sized data, and Oracle Application Container Cloud is a lightweight infrastructure that provides an easy way to deploy apps in Docker containers. In this article, I’ll demonstrate how to connect these two at the most basic level.
What do I mean by “the most basic level”? The demo app will be minimalistic. Typically, I might use Oracle Developer Cloud Service to create a Git repository with an automated build process—but not here. This article will focus only on what’s needed to get Exadata Express and Oracle Application Container Cloud connected. At a high-level, the steps are
- Create a test app
- Add Exadata Express client credentials
- Deploy the app to Oracle Application Container Cloud
- Add some environment variables to get everything working
Create a Test App
The rest of this article assumes that you have an Oracle Cloud account with access to both Exadata Express and Oracle Application Container Cloud. (If you don’t already have an Oracle Cloud account, you can sign up for a free cloud trial.
To connect and use Exadata Express and Oracle Application Container Cloud, start by creating a new directory named connection-test-app on your local machine.
Now create two files in that directory. Read the complete article here.
