You have a given WebLogic Resource properties file stored in a Git repository. This properties file will define several datasources we want to deploy to a WebLogic server. The WebLogic servers we will be using in this tutorial are running Oracle SOA Suite, but this tutorial can be used for all WebLogic servers, regardless of installed technology. The goal of the tutorial is to automate the deployment of the configuration across multiple environments. This automation will include:
- Cloning the properties from a Git repository
- Deploying the configuration to multiple environments
- Utilizing property replacement to adjust environment specific passwords as deployments progress through the environments
We will walk through each of the FlexDeploy features that will be created/configured to accomplish this goal and have the resources deployed in a very short amount of time.
The tutorial does not cover every feature or configuration option available in FlexDeploy.
A Docker image containing a fully configured FlexDeploy instance for this tutorial is available here. Be sure to select the appropriate tag based the version of the tutorial. This image includes FlexDeploy running on Tomcat and an Oracle XE database with the completed configuration described in this tutorial. The configuration is pointing to private endpoints which you will not have access to. You can review the configuration without executing, or use the tutorial as a reference to configure endpoints pointing to your own instances.
