Dockerizing PERL application using MySQL

Hi there,

I would like to insert my PERL application into Docker. I read the user guide and followed the simple example but my script is bit more complex hence I would like you to redirect me to a tutorial for it.

My application in PERL uses softwares for bioinformatics that I would like to include into my package (instead of downloading and install them) is it permitted with Docker?

The application creates a MySQL database the first time it is started. After the DB is existent it will just run some bioinformatics analyses.

The application executes bioinformatic analyses using a text configuration file which must be given in input each time it is executed.

How should I manage Docker with such configuration?

Thanks for your help, I think Docker is a wonderful idea and I’m glad to use it if I can
