SOA Suite on containerized platform – Docker by Michel Schildmeijer


In this post I am exploring the sense of configuring and running an Oracle SOA Suite 12.2 domain on docker and managed by Kubernetes, to discover if SOA is a good candidate to run on Docker.

The server where I will install it is running Oracle Linux 6.8; unfortunately Kubernetes now is supported on Linux 7, so my next post will handle that subject.

  1. export DOCKERURL="" 
  2. rm /etc/yum.repos.d/docker*.repo 
  3. yum-config-manager –add-repo "$DOCKERURL/oraclelinux/docker-ce.repo" 
  4. yum-config-manager –enable docker-ce-stable-17.05 
  5. Read the complete article here.
