I have a basic understanding of Docker. I understand it to be more than an application and less than a virtual machine. And I have questions about where to discover the small bit that I need to know to decide if Docker is a solution to my problem. There is so much available and I don’t think I understand enough to even ask intelligent questions.
I have a moderately complex application that installs on Windows 7 and runs, and installs on Windows 10, but will not run. This application cooperates with Word and Adobe PDF Reader and all three are necessary.
1 - Can I bundle all three applications in one container?
2 - Will each application present it’s own set of native windows or will they “packaged” by a Docker window, like a remote desktop?
3 - Is “containerizing” an application similar to installing it, meaning if I “containerize” on Windows 7, do I get all of my Windows 7 context, or is this dependency resolution a manual process?
Thanks for the help,
