Let’s get started with the first step, building a container which contains the Scores-Service using Docker .
This blog post is all about building and running a docker container on a local machine.
Topics you will find in this post: my experience of learning how configure a Dockerfile along with my creation of the Dockerfile for the score-service, including following steps:
- Choosing the base image
- Installing the needed packaging tools
- Defining the source code location and copying the source code into the container
- Configuring a new user and group for Bower , a package manager
- Setting up the Score-Service
- Running the Score-Service container locally
Note: This is not a blueprint, this is just how I did it and I share my experience with you.
Architecture of the Scores-Service
This is the relevant architecture for building the Docker container. The Scores-Service UI and the Scores Core Service will run in the Docker container locally. The Cloudant service still runs on IBM Cloud.
