Windows server application (automated test environment)

Hello! Happy to finally check out what all the fuss is about!

I get some conflicting information when I read throughout the internet about putting Windows application (no GUI) in a Docker image, possibly because the Windows May Update was just released and with that a new(?) version of Docker. Is it possible to store a Windows application in a Docker image along with a MS SQL database?

The end goal is to mount/insert a snapshot of a database when executing something like docker run our-windows-server path-to-full-database-backup.bak, then the server would start with the database backup, otherwise a minimal “empty” database would be used (possibly stored in the image).

Decide what Test Cases to Automate.
Test Early and Test Often.
Select the Right Automated Testing Tool.
Divide your Automated Testing Efforts.
Create Good, Quality Test Data.
Create Automated Tests that are Resistant to Changes in the UI.

Thank you for your answer, but that was not at all what I was asking for.
Maybe I choose my words poorly, I should have written “automated setup of demo or development environment and testing before delivery”.
