VideoThis tutorial is explained in the below Youtube Video.
- Create a Spring Boot Web Application.
- Create image for starting this application.
- Run the above image as container to start the jar.
Unlike previous tutorial where we used external tomcat,we will be using embedded tomcat for running this application. The project we will as follows-
Run maven command - clean install, and a jar file gets created in the target folder. Next we will start docker and deploy this jar using docker.
Create the dockerfile. Docker file is a list of commands that we want the docker engine to execute. Go to the spring boot project folder and create a docker file as follows-
From openjdk:8 copy ./target/employee-producer-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar employee-producer-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar CMD ["java","-jar","employee-producer-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar"]
Open the terminal and start the docker
systemctl start docker
Now open the terminal and go to the Spring Boot project folder.
Next we will build an image with the name producer.
docker image build -t employee-producer .
Next we will run the above image as a container. Also we will be publishing the docker port 8080 to centos port 8080. This command is same as the previous examples only difference is we will be using an additional command parameter name.
Until now we made use of the unique container id when we created a new container. Instead now we can give an name to the container and use it for referring the container.
docker container run --name producer -p 8080:8080 -d employee-producer
Here we have started the container with name as producer. Now using the following command check the logs
docker container logs producer
The application has started successfully. Go to localhost:8080/employee, we will see that our application is deployed successfully.
