One of our main objectives with the Fn Project is to have a very easy and elegant user experience. From your first touch with our quickstart to building and deploying complex applications, we want to make the experience drop dead simple. Deploying a single function has always been easy — fn deploy — and now you can deploy an app consisting of any number of functions almost as easily.

First, make an app.yaml file and put it in the root directory of your application, eg:

name: myawesomeapp

You should organize your Fn application code in a directory structure that matches your endpoints, for example: Read the complete article here.

One of the strong features of Visual Builder Cloud Service is the ability to consume any REST service very easily. I have a video that shows you how to work with REST services in a completely declarative way, but that video doesn't show you what happens behind the scenes when you work with the quick starts. In addition, that video shows using the GET methods and several threads on our community's discussion forum asked for help working with other operations of REST.

The demo video aims to give you a better insight into working with REST operations showing how to:

  • Add service endpoints for various REST operations
  • Create a GET form manually for retrieving single records
  • Create a POST form manually
    • Create type for the request and response parameters
    • Create variables based on the types
    • Call the POST operation passing a variable as body
  • Get the returned values from the POST to show in a page or notifications

A couple of notes:

In the video I use the free REST testing platform at https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com

While I do everything here manually - you should be able to use the quick starts for creating a "create" form and map them to the post operation - as long as you marked the specific entry as a "create" entry like I did in the demo.

If the concepts above such as types, variables, action chains are new to you - I would highly recommend watching this video on the VBCS Architecture and Building Blocks, it will help you better understand what VBCS is all about.

The technologies of tomorrow have the potential to change the world for the better, whether it’s via planet-scale apps scheduled with Kubernetes Federation or blockchain-based trust with Hyperledger. These two examples are both enabled by open source software (OSS)—but OSS is only one facet of Oracle’s commitment to being open.

“When we say Oracle is open, we don’t just mean open source. We mean that we support non-Oracle technologies as well as the ability to work in an ecosystem that is broader than Oracle. We definitely believe that,” says Amit Zavery, senior vice president for Oracle Cloud Platform. Zavery describes a vision for Oracle that includes open source tools, databases, platforms, and languages; managed services to make OSS more intuitive to use; and open collaboration, innovation, and interoperability.

“We’re taking important open source innovations and providing automation, management, and enterprise-grade capabilities around them,” Zavery says, pointing to Oracle Cloud services for managing a plethora of OSS technologies, including Kubernetes (such as Global Multi-Cluster Management Fn, Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, the Cassandra NoSQL database (by way of Oracle Data Hub Cloud Service), TensorFlow, and Caffe (via Oracle Artificial Intelligence Platform Cloud Service), to name just a few.

As Robert Crames and me has developed some times ago a script set to install and configure Oracle Forms & Reports 12.2.1.2.0 completely silent and unattended, the next step was for me to port this all to Docker ;-)

§ Part 1: https://dirknachbar.blogspot.com/2017/05/how-to-install-and-configure-oracle.html

§ Part 2: https://robertcrames.blogspot.ch/2017/05/how-to-install-and-configure-oracle.html

Oracle has a really good GitHub Repository (https://github.com/oracle/docker-images) with several Oracle Products, but no Docker Image for Oracle Forms & Reports :-( So I spent some time and managed to port our above mentioned script set for Oracle Forms & Reports 12.2.1.2.0 to build a Docker image for Oracle Forms & Reports.
The complete set of Docker build files and a docker-compose sample can be found under my GitHub Repository https://github.com/DirkNachbar/Docker
My solution is mainly based on Oracle Images, but very modified:

§ OracleJava:

§ instead of pulling an oraclelinux:7-slim, I am using an oraclelinux:latest.

§ instead of using an Oracle Server JRE, I am using an Oracle JDK

§ OracleFMWInfrastructure:

§ within this Image, which is based on the above OracleJava Image, I am installing all required RPM's for Oracle Forms & Reports, eg. motif, compat-libstdc++-33 and so on and implementing the libXm.so fix directly for Oracle Reports
