Progress product team has now published OpenEdge RDBMS container image on Docker Hub at https://hub.docker.com/_/oe-db
This can be used as part of CI/CD pipeline, in particular to speed up the development cycle where team members can instantly bring up a fresh, pre-configured OpenEdge database for any form of validation/testing.
Hi, thank you, do you know if OE RDBMS in docker is supported for production environments?
[mention:eba10a36c99443059eebc1db4eb1d944:e9ed411860ed4f2ba0265705b8793d05] using RDBMS on Docker container in production is not supported and is not recommended.
The key reason our team introduced this capability is to help developers cycle through fresh test environments faster, stand up new/additional test environments (e.g. for performance or security testing) and on-board new developers joining the team.
Are there any plans to release an 11.7.x version of this Docker Image?
Thank you Oleg and OE team. We're looking forward to integrating this capability into our pipeline. Right now we're building unit-test DBs from scratch each time so I expect using containers will be a big improvement.
We've been using the PASOE Docker image with 11.7.5. But we needed to use hotfix 11 to address the HTTP 204 bug and it was a pain. We had to manually add the hotfix files to the existing image, rather than being able to download it from Docker Hub. Also, the resulting image was considerably larger than the original. I hope that in the future PSC will have the ability to deliver not only releases but also hotfixes in Docker images.
that's good to know Rob, thank you, we will look into this.
