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.

Running with Maven

The plugin provides two Maven goals related to starting and stopping containers. This will be docker:start and docker:stop. Containers are created and started with the docker:start and stopped and destroyed with the docker:stop. If you need to run the container during the integration tests, the typical use case will be to include those goals in Maven build phases: the docker:start will be bound to the pre-integration-test and docker:stop to the post-integration-test phase.

Plugin configuration

The plugin uses the configuration from the <run> sub-element of the <configuration> in the pom.xml file. The list of the most important configuration elements is as follows:
