Hey folks, I’ve got to find a way of translating my database which is housed in a CentOS vm with oracle EE and tomcat to Docker. Essentially I need a container which I can make API calls to.
Now I know that the 2 ways to tackle this are by:
- Creating my own Docker image with a CentOS base, and oracle, java, tomcat, etc on top
- Moving over the entire VM in a Docker image and maintain the same functionalities.
I’m really stuck because I looked at Rancher, and VBox images which just didn’t let me open up my .vmx file (p.s. They only let me use existing vm images). Another issue was that I couldn’t find a good base image which had normal cli functionality like sudo/yum/rpm.
Any recommendations or images that I should use to get this task done? I could really use the help!
