Introduction to Docker for Java Developers

Docker—a leading software container platform—can simplify the overall application delivery experience by providing a common platform for collaboration. Docker integrates seamlessly with existing tool chains, making it easier to deliver software rapidly if you’re running a Java application. In this course, instructor Mary Ellen Bowman helps you discover how to get started with Docker, with tips and tricks tailored specifically for Java developers working with the platform.

Learn how the Docker engine provides an easy-to-build runtime environment, a must-have for Java developers. Explore the magic of using Docker to build and run a java application without installing Maven, Tomcat, or the required version of Java. Along the way, Mary gives you pointers on best practices for containerization and using dockerfile alternatives such as Cloud Native Buildpacks and plugins for Google Jib and Spring Boot.
