Exercise 1 - Deploy the example application via one script
In this short exercise you'll deploy Kafka, PostgreSQL, and the Microservices of the reactive example via a script and test the example application.

Step 1: Deploy the example application

Invoke the following command:
1
bash ~/cloud-native-starter/reactive/os4-scripts/deploy-example.sh
Copied!
The deployment takes approximately 10 minutes.
The script console output shows links to the Microservices and the Web-App at the end of the execution.
The following 35 sec YouTube video shows a example execution of the script and the test of the application.

Step 2: Launch the web application

To launch the web application get the URL from the last output and open the application in a browser.
web-app-url

Step 3: Copy the curl command

Copy the curl command to create a new article and insert it into your current terminal session.
create-articles-curl

Step 4: Test the example application

Open the web application in a browser. Then invoke the curl post command. The web application should show the new entry.
