Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure (ODSA)

by Juarez Junior


This blog post will explore the development of serverless applications with Azure Functions and the Oracle Database Service for Azure (ODSA).

It complements the series on developing Azure applications with ODSA, which includes the previous blog posts listed below.

Note that this guide is not supposed to be an exhaustive guide to Azure Functions. Its goal is to provide a quick tutorial on creating and deploying a FaaS application that connects to an Oracle Autonomous Database (ADB) instance provisioned by using the Oracle Database Service for Azure.

Please check the official documentation for Azure Functions for a comprehensive exploration of it.

Without further ado, let’s begin!


Azure Functions

Azure Functions is a serverless FaaS (Functions as a Service) solution that follows an event-driven approach to application development.

Developers can implement and run their code by using several different programming languages without being required to perform any platform-related tasks.
