Is Docker truly that easy to use? What are the limitations when faced with docker? What is already available to start with? Overcome the rush of encountering a new technology and start fighting the muck. Or isn't there any?

Goal of this project is that get a feel how easy it is to use Docker in practice. To do this we will create and spin up containers with:

  • an application container (WebLogic 12), containing a simple Hello world webservice
  • an application container containing a Hello {prince}, where the princes name is stored in a database contained in another container
  • gradle (or alternatively mvn) to build our Hello world war

To conclude we'll set up a Jenkins workflow, combining the creation of the war and the Weblogic container and combining them in a Docker container to be stored in a (private) Docker repository.
