Video: How To Work with an External Oracle Database

At OutSystems, we recognize that while developers may prefer to create our own data models, we don't always have that luxury. Sometimes we have to create applications on top of existing data in a relational database outside the OutSystems platform. And our training team has a course specifically talking about just that.

This How-To video, which is a supplement to that course, demonstrates how to connect to an external Oracle database, how to create an Extension that allows you to have controlled access to tables (or views) in the external database, including changing how the entities and/or attributes are named, how data types are mapped between the native and OutSystems types, etc., and how to deploy the Extension to your OutSystems environment, and use it to create applications and scaffold data-bound screens and UIs.

We'll have a similar How-To for MySQL posted shortly...I'll update this post with the link once it is ready.

Nice Work. Congratulations

Thanks for your contribution.

Just a suggestion, maybe it's better to have a separated post for the MySQL instead of updating this one.

Absolutely. That's the plan. But I also will cross-link each of the videos, to make it easier for folks to find.
