Docker Jboss/wildfly: How to add datasources and MySQL connector

I am learning Docker which is completely new to me. I already was able to create an jboss/wildfly image, and then i was able to start jboss with my application using this Dockerfile:

FROM jboss/wildfly

CMD ["/opt/jboss/wildfly/bin/", "-c", "standalone-full.xml", "-b", ""]

ADD mywebapp-web/target/mywebapp-1.0.war /opt/jboss/wildfly/standalone/deployments/mywebapp-1.0.war

Now i would like to add support for a MySQL Database by adding a datasource to the standalone and the mysql connector. For that i am following this example:

Following is my dockerfile and my script


FROM jboss/wildfly:latest

ADD customization /opt/jboss/wildfly/customization/

CMD ["/opt/jboss/wildfly/customization/"]

execute script code:


# Usage: [WildFly mode] [configuration file]
# The default mode is 'standalone' and default configuration is based on the
# mode. It can be 'standalone.xml' or 'domain.xml'.

echo "=> Executing Customization script"


function wait_for_server() {
  until `$JBOSS_CLI -c ":read-attribute(name=server-state)" 2> /dev/null | grep -q running`; do
    sleep 1

echo "=> Starting WildFly server"

echo "JBOSS_CLI   : " $JBOSS_CLI

echo $JBOSS_HOME/bin/$ -b -c $JBOSS_CONFIG &

echo "=> Waiting for the server to boot"

echo "=> Executing the commands"
$JBOSS_CLI -c --file=`dirname "$0"`/commands.cli

# Add MySQL module
module add --name=com.mysql --resources=/opt/jboss/wildfly/customization/mysql-connector-java-5.1.39-bin.jar --dependencies=javax.api,javax.transaction.api

# Add MySQL driver

# Deploy the WAR
#cp /opt/jboss/wildfly/customization/leadservice-1.0.war $JBOSS_HOME/$JBOSS_MODE/deployments/leadservice-1.0.war

echo "=> Shutting down WildFly"
if [ "$JBOSS_MODE" = "standalone" ]; then
  $JBOSS_CLI -c ":shutdown"
  $JBOSS_CLI -c "/host=*:shutdown"

echo "=> Restarting WildFly"

But I get a error when i run the image complaining that a file or directory is not found:

Can someone let me know how can i access the filesystem so i can check which file or directory is complaining? Is there a better way to debug this?

I believe that is something related with the bash which is referred on first line of the script because the following echo is not printed

Thank you so much

You should try to remove this for the debugging purpose. This file is probably missing / somewhere else and docker is not able to find it.

I am not familiar with Wildfly - Is it correct that you first run the standalone command and than add the warfile? And the cp is comment out.

Thank you for your response.

Yes i commented out the cp to try to find out what is going wrong. I found something strange:

  1. On my 1st Docker file that is working, with the ADD command i copy the war file and then i start the application server, and it works fine.

  2. I tried to copy to the deployments directory (yes it is stupid but it was just for test purpose) the file and then execute from there because i know that i can copy the war. But when i try to execute the file i get that same message: “no such file or directory”.

Basically i dont know what’s going on when i copy these files.

I made it to ssh the container.

  1. ssh to the docker machine: docker-machine ssh default
  2. checked the container id with the command: docker ps -a
  3. ssh to the container with the command: sudo docker exec -i -t 665b4a1e17b6 /bin/bash
  4. i can check that the “/opt/jboss/wildfly/customization/” directory exists with the expected files

The customization dir have the following permissions and is listed like this:

drwxr-xr-x   2 root    root    4096 Jun 12 23:44 customization
drwxr-xr-x 10 jboss jboss   4096 Jun 14 00:15 standalone

and the files inside the customization dir

drwxr-xr-x  2 root  root    4096 Jun 12 23:44 .
drwxr-xr-x 12 jboss jboss   4096 Jun 14 00:15 ..
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  root    1755 Jun 12 20:06
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  root  989497 May  4 11:11 mysql-connector-java-5.1.39-bin.jar

if i try to execute the file i get this error

[jboss@d68190e4f0d8 customization]$ ./
bash: ./ /bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

Does this bring light to anything?

Thank you so much again

I found the issue. The file was with windows eof. i converted to UNIX And start to work.

Thank you very much for your attention

I tried the exact scripts and steps shared here.

I am getting commands.cli not found
