Docker compose Dotnet Core and MySQL example system

Example docker-compose system, based on .NET Core project and MySQL database (accessed with Dapper).

Dotnet Dockerfile and basic Docker setup based on SoftwareDeveloper.Blog introduction to Docker.

Docker-compose configuration used in this example is explained line by line in SoftwareDeveloper.Blog introduction to docker-compose.

Docker-compose up

if you want to see this example running, you can just type docker-compose up from solution directory.

Docker-compose up -d

If you want run this example but without attaching console, run docker-compose up in detach mode - docker-compose up -d.

Docker-compose up --build

If you have already composed system up, but then changed source code, you need to pass --build parameter, when running docker-compose up next time: docker-compose up --build. Of course it can be used along with detach parameter.

Docker-compose down

When you want to clean up containers and networks created by docker-compose, just type docker-compose down from solution directory.

Check if system works

If you want to see if this example system works properly, just access in your browser following GET address - http://localhost:8080 and you should see following results taken from database:

    "id": 1,
    "name": "Dependency Injection Principles, Practices, and Patterns",
    "description": "Book by Steven van Deursen and Mark Seemann"
    "id": 2,
    "name": "Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices",
    "description": "Book by Robert C. Martin"

If you see empty result, wait a while and try again - maybe MyQSL database is not fully initialized yet.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
