With more than half of the American people living along our Nation's coasts, extreme beach and cliff erosion can dramatically alter coastal ecosystems, cause billions of dollars' worth of coastal development, and even threaten human life.

Through projects like the National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards and regional studies of nearshore processes, the US Geological Survey is uncovering the science behind coastal change hazards and providing data, tools, and scientific knowledge to help coastal planners, resource managers, and emergency operations as they work to reduce risk along our coastlines.

Using Docker

This project has support for running locally via Docker. The first step in getting the projcet to run in docker is to create the SSL certificate keystore and trust store that the project needs.

Setting up the Docker Containers

1). Creating the keystore

  1. In the project Docker directory run the following command where <your docker IP> is replaced with the IP address of the docker container that your CCH Portal service will be deployed on.

    keytool -genkey -noprompt -keystore key-store.jks -validity 999 -keysize 2048 -alias cch-portal -keyalg RSA -storepass changeit -dname "CN=<your docker IP>, OU=owi, O=owi, L=middleton, S=WI, C=US"

    Note that the keystore password -storepass can be changed from changeit to another value of your choice.

  2. Copy key-store.jks into coastal-hazards/coastal-hazards-portal/docker directory.

  3. Copy key-store.jks into coastal-hazards/coastal-hazards-geoserver/docker directory.

  4. Copy key-store.jks into coastal-hazards/coastal-hazards-n52/docker directory.

2). Modifying configuration

The compose.env file located in the project root directory contains example values for all of the necessary configuration variables when running the docker containers. If you launch CCH using docker-compose then this file will be automatically picked up and applied to the containers.

Several of the configuration values in compose.env may need to be changed if your docker vm does not have an ip address of

3). Building and running the docker containers

  1. If building from local sources, prior to building the docker containers the CCH Maven project must first be built so that the WAR files are placed into the targe directories. There should be a total of 3 WAR files created, 1 in each of coastal-hazards-n52, coastal-hazards-geoserver, and coastal-hazards-portal.

  2. There are 2 build arguments that can be supplied which will modify the built containers. The first is required when building your images, the second is optional and only needs to be supplied if necessary.

    • KEYSTORE_PASSWORD - [REQUIRED] This should be the password that you gave the keystore you created previously. This must be supplied even if you used the default keystore password changeit.

    • doi_network - [OPTIONAL] Set this to true if you are having trouble pulling the necessary files for the docker containres during build and you are behind the DOI network. It's possible that the SSL inspection certificate is casuing problems.

    When running the docker-compose or Docker build commands these arguments can be passed in as follows: KEYSTORE_PASSWORD=newpass docker-compose up

  3. Navigate to the coastal hazards project root directory and exectue the following command (note if you are on Windows this must be exectued from the Docker Machine context).

    docker-compose up

    This should being the process of building and then launching all of the docker containers needed for this project. This process will take some time, possibly in upwards of 15 minutes.

  4. Once the portal has finished building and starting it should be accessible from <your docker IP>:8080/coastal-hazards-portal/

Stopping the docker containers

In order to bring down the running cch stack run the following command:

docker-compose down

This will bring down all of the running CCH services defined in the docker-compose.yml file. Note that running this command will also REMOVE the associated docker containers meaning all data stored in them will be lost.

An alternative method for only brining down select services is to run docker ps to find the container ID of the service that you'd like to bring down. Once you've found the container ID run docker stop <container ID> to stop that service and then, if you'd like to also remove the container, run docker rm <container ID>.

Modifying the docker images

When you launch a service using docker-compose it does NOT always re-build the docker image for the service it is trying to launch. If there is already an existing image for the service you'd like to launch then it will use that rather than building a new one.

In order to build a new docker image for a specific service you can either remove the existing image (which will force docker-compose to rebuild it), or you can overwrite it with a newer image using docker build.

If you remove the existing image note that the entire image building process will need to run again, but if you simply run docker build and overwrite the existing image Docker will re-use the parts of the existing image that have not been modified.

In order to use docker build first navigate into the directory containing the Dockerfile of the service that you would like to rebuild. In this directory open a terminal and run docker build -t <image name> . where <image name> matches the name of the image for that service as defined in the docker-compose.yml file. Build arguments can be passed into the docker build command in the same manner as the docker-compose up command (described above). Example: KEYSTORE_PASSWORD=newpass docker build -t cch-portal .

Any re-built services can then be brought up via the service-specific version of docker-compose described in point 1 under Additional Important Notes below.

Building from local sources vs building from artifacts

Several of the sub-project docker files support buildling from local sources instead of pulling a specific artifact version from the CIDA Nexus. The sub-projects that support this are coastal-hazards-n52, coastal-hazards-liquibase, coastal-hazards-geoserver, and coastal-hazards-portal.

These projects have local-source building enabled by default. In order to switch to building from a pre-built artifact open the Dockerfile in each project, comment out the Local Build section, and uncomment the Artifact Build section. Additionally, check that the desired artifact version is correctly specified in the ARG at the top of the Dockerfile.

Additional Important Notes

  1. It is recommended that you primarily use the docker containers for running the Rserve, PyCSW, and PostgreSQL portions of the application. Due to the large size of most files that are uploaded into the portal it requires a very large Docker VM to store a decent number of items. In order to launch only a subset of the applications services run a command similar to the following (you can find the service names in the docker-compose.yml file in the project root directory).

    docker-compose up cch_postgres cch_pycsw cch_rserve

  2. The ports that are described in the compose.env for the different services are the ports that they will be exposed on from Docker, not necessarily the ports that the services themselves are running on within the containers. The ports in your compose.env file should match up with the ports on the left of side of the ports argument for that service in the docker-compose.yml file. The ports argument is defined as <port to be exposed on from the Docker IP>:<port service is running on within the container>. For example, the cch_n52_wps service runs on port 8080 in the container, however it is being exposed by docker on port 8082 (as shown by 8082:8080 being its port argument in the docker-compose.yml file) and is thus accessible from <your docker IP>:8082 and not accessible from <your docker IP>:8080. <your docker IP>:8080 is serving the cch_portal service, which is also exposed on port 8080 within its container as shown by its port argument being 8080:8080.
