Oracle SOA Suite 12c Docker Image
tags:
oracle soa docker packer

After find some limitations on building SOA Docker image using Dockerfile (as volume access, default size image) I researched on how to improve building process and I found Packer (from the same guy that creates Vagrant).

To check why using Packer instead of Dockerfiles, go here.

I also moved OracleSOA directory from my forked oracle-docker repository to an independent repository: github.com/jeqo/oracle-soa-12c-docker.

Improvements

Basically Dockerfile scripts were moved to shell scripts and are called from Packer.

  "provisioners": [
    {
      "type": "shell",
      "scripts": [
        "scripts/create-user.sh"
      ]
    },
    {
      "type": "file",
      "source": "./files/",
      "destination": "/u01/"
    },
    {
      "type": "shell",
      "scripts": [
        "scripts/install-java.sh"
      ],
      "environment_vars": [
        "JAVA_RPM=/data/{{user `java_rpm`}}"
      ]
    },
    {
      "type": "shell",
      "scripts": [
        "scripts/install-soa.sh"
      ],
      "environment_vars": [
        "SOA_ZIP=/data/{{user `soa_zip`}}",
        "SOA_PKG={{user `soa_pkg`}}",
        "SOA_PKG2={{user `soa_pkg2`}}",
        "JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/default",
        "MW_HOME=/u01/oracle/soa"
      ]
    }
  ]

After provisioning, you can save your image, and if you want push it to Docker Hub:

  "post-processors": [
    [
      {
        "type": "docker-tag",
        "repository": "jeqo/oracle-soa-12c",
        "tag": "12.1.3-dev"
      },
      "docker-push"
    ]
  ]

Very simple and straightforward JSON configuration.

Now you have a Docker image with SOA installer, ready to create your domain as this sample explained on my previous post.
