Let’s now deploy some apps and service that connect to the MySQL databases we just created. We start by deploying a Document Store from the Solution Marketplace, followed by deploying a sample Java app available as a docker image in DockerHub (in a public repository).
Head on again to the Marketplace Solution page, and select the EInnovator Document Store Solution. Selected the Dedicated Server plan and enter the resource settings as follow:
Confirm that the container running the Document Store starts. Use the status indicator to confirm that is Running (green). You can also check the logs by clicking on the Log tab, and the Meta-Tab tab. Click on the Routes tab, and button View App. Confirm that the SSO Admin setup page opens. Register the first user with your email/username/password. This user is assigned automatically the administrator role. Feel free to take a few minutes to explore the admin console of the Document Store, and then return back to this tutorial.
Back to the Cloud Manager, click on the tab Enviroment > Bindings. Notice that a set of Bindings have been automatically created when this service was deployed. Furthermore, notice that the Binding with selector mysql:sso is bound to the Connector you created early on. Don’t worry about the Bindings that don’t have Connectors bound yet. This service is prepared to be able to operated correctly even if those other Connectors are missing. Only the MySQL Connector is strictly required.
Click on the tab Enviroment > Connectors of the Document Store deployment. Confirm that a Connector was also automatically created with name
default. This Connector can be used for other apps deployed in this Space to learn about the HTTP base URL to make requests to this app — by defining a Binding with selector sso. The use of this Connector is shown when we deploy a sample app.
