To deploy an application image when Docker Engine is in swarm mode, you create a service. Frequently a service is the image for a microservice within the context of some larger application. Examples of services might include an HTTP server, a database, or any other type of executable program that you wish to run in a distributed environment.

The Ultimate guide to DevOps Tools Part #2 : Docker

This article will continue the basic for docker which is consider one of the DevOps Tools after finishing these series i will choose another tools that could help DBA to automate their works.

In this post i will show you how to build your first application using docker, without docker if you need to programming using language first you should install that language on your PC and test it on your development environment and for sure the production should be ready to sync and test your code again on it seems a lot of work.😥

But now with docker you just pull/grab that image, no installation needed, and run your code on that image.🎉

But how we can control what happening inside the environment, like Accessing to resources like networking interfaces and disk drives is virtualized inside this environment which is isolated from the rest of your system all of this happening by something called Dockerfile.

Clone Weblogic Software from One Machine to another

Cloning is the process of copying an existing entity to a different location while preserving its state. Some situations in which cloning Oracle Fusion Middleware is useful are:

Creating a Middleware home or Oracle home that is a copy of a production, test, or development environment. Cloning enables you to create a new Middleware home or an Oracle home with all patches applied to it in a single step. This is in contrast to separately installing, configuring and applying any patches to separate Oracle homes.Preparing a "gold" image of a patched home and deploying it to many hosts. When you move a Middleware home, you create an archive of the source Middleware home and use the archive to create the copy of the Middleware home:
./ -javaHome /u01/jdk -archiveLoc /u01/test.jar -sourceOracleHomeLoc /u01/Oracle/Middleware/fmw_soa
After this copy the jar file to new location and run the following command :-
./ -javaHome /u01/jdk -archiveLoc /u01/test.jar -t…

Oracle API Gateway Installation as cluster and single node

I wrote this article because there is no much information about this product to configure it as cluster so i choose to write it step by step to help people around the world in case they need information about this product.

this article is fully details and working on Solaris but the same steps could be follow for Unix/Linux and windows.
