Microservices and SODA: JSON Data Stored in an Oracle Database Accessed through​ REST or Java


Simple Oracle Document Access SODA (Simple Oracle Document Access) is a non-SQL style of storing/retrieving JSON data in an Oracle database. It's so easy to work with SODA! Let's get started. First, enable ORDS schema in your database. Second, deploy ORDS in K8s (you can also deploy ORDS standalone in your laptop or in a container … Continue reading Microservices and SODA: JSON Data Stored in an Oracle Database Accessed through​ REST or Java

Enabling HR​ (or other) Schema for ORDS Oracle REST Data Services


Once we have configured ORDS, we must enable a schema for REST operations. Let's do it for HR schema. If the database doesn't have the HR schema created, google for it or follow this doco. Anyway, you can use the schema user you want. And now let's enable the schema, first, execute the following as … Continue reading Enabling HR​ (or other) Schema for ORDS Oracle REST Data Services

Setup ORDS in a PDB


ORDS utilizes several schemas for working properly. Follow these steps just in case your database hasn't been set up. NOTE: you need DBA privileges as well as 2 tablespaces created before proceeding, ask your dba or get this info before starting (although you can also manage it on the fly if you have a few … Continue reading Setup ORDS in a PDB

The Increasingly Important Role of API Management in the Adoption of Integrated SaaS Solutions Together with the Onprem and Third-party Systems


As the adoption of the cloud by companies progresses, we see how an ecosystem of cloud providers is being formed that must be integrated with each other and with the legacy systems of our customers. That is, it confirms what was already intuited, the cloud will be hybrid and multi-provider. In this order of things … Continue reading The Increasingly Important Role of API Management in the Adoption of Integrated SaaS Solutions Together with the Onprem and Third-party Systems

Creating a Java Microservice with Helidon/Microservice Archetype Deployed in Kubernetes


With Helidon you can create Java microservices easily. In this blog, we are creating/exposing a REST service that gets a JSON document stored in an Oracle database and retrieves it to the requestor. For retrieving the JSON document from the database we are using ORDS and SODA but you can use JDBC as well, we'll show … Continue reading Creating a Java Microservice with Helidon/Microservice Archetype Deployed in Kubernetes

Weblogic Kubernetes operator or how to run WebLogic​ clusters in k8s


There are lots of WebLogic clusters running around the globe every day. When you withdraw money in the ATM, buy lettuces in the supermarket or make a phone call there is a WebLogic server (and probably an Oracle database too) is executing some logic for you. Computing paradigms today tend to new standards and Kubernetes … Continue reading Weblogic Kubernetes operator or how to run WebLogic​ clusters in k8s

Deploy ORDS (Oracle Rest Data Services) to Kubernetes Cluster


ORDS is a piece of software that acts as an intermediary between Oracle Database and the layers where business logic is implemented and/or consumed. NOTE: If your database hasn't been set up for ORDS just google for it or take a look at this post. With ORDS you expose database objects as REST. ORDS can be … Continue reading Deploy ORDS (Oracle Rest Data Services) to Kubernetes Cluster

Pushing a Container to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry (OCIR) and Pulling it from OKE


OCIR is a Docker v2 compliant private registry provided by Oracle in their OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) offering. Let's have a look at it. First log in to the repository this way: docker login <region-code>.ocir.io, where <region-code> is documented here. Then, you'll need a user/password. For the user, provide an existing user in the OCI tenancy. … Continue reading Pushing a Container to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Registry (OCIR) and Pulling it from OKE
