OOW'19 stands up from recent years OOW conferences with important announcement - Oracle Cloud Free Tier offering. This offering includes two free DB instances and two free compute VM instances. What else you could wish for the side and hobby projects? This is a strong move by Oracle and it should boost Oracle Cloud. Read more about it in Oracle Cloud Free Tier page.
It was interesting to test how to deploy Oracle JET app to Oracle Always Free instance of compute VM. I will not go through the initial steps, related how to create VM instance and enable internet access (for the port 80). You can read all that in a nice write up from Dimitri Gielis post.
Assuming you already have created Oracle JET app and want to deploy it. One way would be to set up Node.js and Nginx on the compute VM and pull app source code from Git. I prefer another way - to go through Docker container, Nginx would act as HTTP server to redirect requests to Docker container port. But in this post for simplicity reasons, we are not going to look into Nginx setup - will focus only on JET deployment through Docker container. Read the complete article here.
