What is SonarQube?
SonarQube is an open source platform for continuous inspection of code quality.
How to use this image
The server is started this way:
$ docker run -d --name sonarqube -p 9000:9000 -p 9092:9092 sonarqube
To analyse a project:
$ On Linux: mvn sonar:sonar $ With boot2docker: mvn sonar:sonar -Dsonar.host.url=http://$(boot2docker ip):9000 -Dsonar.jdbc.url="jdbc:h2:tcp://$(boot2docker ip)/sonar"
By default, the image will use an embedded H2 database that is not suited for production.
The production database is configured with these variables:
$ docker run -d --name sonarqube \ -p 9000:9000 -p 9092:9092 \ -e SONARQUBE_JDBC_USERNAME=sonar \ -e SONARQUBE_JDBC_PASSWORD=sonar \ -e SONARQUBE_JDBC_URL=jdbc:postgresql://localhost/sonar \ sonarqube

sonarqube images come in many flavors, each designed for a specific use case.
This is the defacto image. If you are unsure about what your needs are, you probably want to use this one. It is designed to be used both as a throw away container (mount your source code and start the container to start your app), as well as the base to build other images off of.
This image is based on the popular Alpine Linux project, available in the
alpine official image. Alpine Linux is much smaller than most distribution base images (~5MB), and thus leads to much slimmer images in general.
This variant is highly recommended when final image size being as small as possible is desired. The main caveat to note is that it does use musl libc instead of glibc and friends, so certain software might run into issues depending on the depth of their libc requirements. However, most software doesn't have an issue with this, so this variant is usually a very safe choice. See this Hacker News comment thread for more discussion of the issues that might arise and some pro/con comparisons of using Alpine-based images.
To minimize image size, it's uncommon for additional related tools (such as
bash) to be included in Alpine-based images. Using this image as a base, add the things you need in your own Dockerfile (see the
alpine image description for examples of how to install packages if you are unfamiliar).

As with all Docker images, these likely also contain other software which may be under other licenses (such as Bash, etc from the base distribution, along with any direct or indirect dependencies of the primary software being contained).

As for any pre-built image usage, it is the image user's responsibility to ensure that any use of this image complies with any relevant licenses for all software contained within.
