Building the Web Application Docker Image
If you want to run the web application as a docker container, you can build it as follows:
./mvnw -Pdocker install
This will build a Docker container for the webapplication and will make it locally available to be run by docker.
docker image ls REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE isas/mztab-validator-webapp 1.0.8-SNAPSHOT b87d4683db50 About an hour ago 472MB
Please note that the base image we use is quite large (for details, see
web/Dockerfile), but also includes monitoring utilities and automatic scaling and limiting of the
internal JVMs memory based on the amount of memory allocated for the container by Docker.
To run the web application as a Docker container, type in the following (replacing <VERSION> with the current project version, i.e. the TAG version displayed by
docker image ls):
docker run -it --rm --name mztabvalidator -p 8080:8083 -m 150M isas/mztab-validator-webapp:<VERSION>
This project is based on and uses code that was developed for the original jmzTab project:
