Using the Dockerfiles

To use these Dockerfiles you will need a copy of the Apama 10.3 core installation from Unpack it into this directory under a folder named 'core'.

Next, choose one of the following Linux distributions to use as your base image:

  • CentOS 7 (Installs Python from EPEL repository)
  • Ubuntu Bionic (Installs Python from main repository)
  • Debian Buster (Installs Python from main repository)
  • OpenSuse Leap 15 (Installs Python from main repository)
  • Ubuntu Xenial (Installs Python from a PPA)
  • Debian Stretch (Builds Python from source)
  • Debian Jessie (Builds Python from source)
  • OpenSuse Leap 42 (Builds Python from source)

Once you have chosen the distribution and release to use as a base image, build the image with:

docker build -t projectimage -f Dockerfile.distribution:release .

Once that has completed you can run the demo project in the docker image with:

docker run --rm -t -i projectimage
