Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?

What is the current behavior?
Jest doesn't watch for changes in files from a docker container. In tools like nodemon or babel-watch we have legacy or pooling mode, that doesn't seems to exist in jest cli.

If the current behavior is a bug, please provide the steps to reproduce and either a demo through or a minimal repository on GitHub that we can yarn install and yarn test.
github repo:
docker build -t jest_docker .
docker run --rm -it -v "./src:/app/src" jest_docker

If you want to try with watch you should create an github repo first. see here
docker run --rm -ti --entrypoint /bin/bash jest_docker
yarn test --watch

What is the expected behavior?
Re-run tests if source code was changed.

Please provide your exact Jest configuration and mention your Jest, node, yarn/npm version and operating system.

Docker version
Docker version 17.06.2-ce, build cec0b72

Yeah, this is unsupported right now but it's unlikely we'll be adding this feature from our side anytime soon. The watch code is all in jest-haste-map, feel free to send a PR to fix this but for now I consider this a wontfix.
