Overview of this book

Imagine creating and testing Java EE applications on Apache Tomcat Server or Wildfly Application server in minutes along with deploying and managing Java applications swiftly. Sounds too good to be true? But you have a reason to cheer as such scenarios are only possible by leveraging Docker and Kubernetes. This book will start by introducing Docker and delve deep into its networking and persistent storage concepts. You will then proceed to learn how to refactor monolith application into separate services by building an application and then packaging it into Docker containers. Next, you will create an image containing Java Enterprise Application and later run it using Docker. Moving on, the book will focus on Kubernetes and its features and you will learn to deploy a Java application to Kubernetes using Maven and monitor a Java application in production. By the end of the book, you will get hands-on with some more advanced topics to further extend your knowledge about Docker and Kubernetes.

Volume drivers

The same as with network driver plugins, volume plugins extend the capabilities of the Docker engine and enable integration with other types of storage. There are a ton of ready to use plugins available for free on the Internet; you can find a list on Docker's GitHub page. Some of them include:

  • Docker volume driver for Azure file storage: This is a Docker volume driver which uses Azure file storage to mount file shares on the cloud to Docker containers as volumes. It uses the network file sharing (SMB/CIFS protocols) capabilities of Azure file storage. You can create Docker containers that can migrate from one host to another seamlessly or share volumes among multiple containers running on different hosts.
  • IPFS: Open source volume plugin that allows the use of an IPFS filesystem as a volume. IPFS is a very interesting and promising storage system; it makes...
