Docker Containers to develop (micro)services with WSO2

A set of Docker scripts useful to compose Systems/Architectures containers layouts for (Micro)services development purpose using WSO2 and other products as ActiveMQ, Qpid, RabbitMQ, Monitoring tools, etc.


The configuration/functionalities not changed for each WSO2 container are:

  • Log4j configuration
  • The User/Password for Admin Web Carbon Console
  • H2 database

The idea is creating several base docker images where we can compose complex architecture to implement (micro)services.
Then, the available scripts to create a base docker images are:

  1. WSO2 Enterprise Server Bus
    • version 4.8.1
    • version 4.9.0 (latest)
  2. WSO2 API Manager
    • version 1.8.0
    • version 1.9.1 (latest)
  3. WSO2 Data Services Server
    • version 3.2.1
    • version 3.2.2
    • version 3.5.0 (latest)
  4. WSO2 Governance Registry (wip)
    • version 5.1.0
  5. WSO2 Microservice Server (wip)
    • version 1.0.0-alpha
  6. Message Broker (wip)
    • RabbitMQ
    • WSO2 Message Broker
    • Apache ActiveMQ
    • Apache Qpid
  7. Data Persistence (wip)
    • MySQL
    • PostgreSQL
    • Redis
    • Cassandra
  8. WSO2 Business Activity Monitor
    • version 2.5.0
  9. WSO2 Data Analytics Server (wip)
    • version 3.0.0
    • version 3.0.1 (latest)
  10. Wiremock Server
    • Standalone version 2.0.6-beta
    • Standalone version 2.0.7-beta
    • Standalone version 2.0.7-beta (latest)

Getting starting

In each WSO2 container are being copied the carbon.xml and web.xml files, where carbon.xml has updated parameters and they are a new ServerRole, Offset and ServerName. Change them if you require it.

Building and Running base images.

1) Download docker scripts:

$ git clone
$ cd docker-wso2-dev-srv

2) Create an image:

$ docker build --rm -t chilcano/wso2-esb:4.8.1 wso2esb/4.8.1


  • chilcano/wso2-esb:4.8.1 is the tag of the new image
  • wso2esb/4.8.1 is the PATH where Dockerfile is located

3) Check created images:

$ docker images
REPOSITORY          TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             VIRTUAL SIZE
chilcano/wso2-esb   4.8.1               254476f8c58e        6 seconds ago       1.393 GB
java                openjdk-7           a93511e8921b        12 days ago         589.7 MB

4) Create, run, attach and stop a new container:

Create and run new container:

$ docker run --detach -t --name=wso2esb01a -p 19449:9443 chilcano/wso2-esb:4.8.1


  • --detach or -d means to run the container in detached mode
  • wso2esb01a is the name of container
  • 19449 is the external port for the port 9443
  • chilcano/wso2-esb:4.8.1 is the tag of image
  • -t creates a pseudo-TTY, if this parameter is not provided, then when attaching the running container you will neve can release the shell session.

Stop a running container:

$ docker stop wso2esb01a

Check if container is running:

$ docker ps -a
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                     COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS                       PORTS               NAMES
259a3d3eb8e0        chilcano/wso2-esb:4.8.1   "/bin/sh -c 'sh ./wso"   26 minutes ago      Exited (137) 3 minutes ago                       wso2esb01a

Now, restart the existing container:

$ docker start wso2esb01a

... and check again if container is running:

$ docker ps -a
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                     COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                               NAMES
259a3d3eb8e0        chilcano/wso2-esb:4.8.1   "/bin/sh -c 'sh ./wso"   36 minutes ago      Up 32 seconds       8286/tcp,>9443/tcp   wso2esb01a

5) Go to WSO2 Carbon Web Console

If container is running, just open this URL (https://<WSO2_HOST_IP>:19449/carbon) in a browser.
The <WSO2_HOST_IP> in my case is You can get it running this command:

$ docker-machine ls
NAME           ACTIVE   DRIVER       STATE     URL                         SWARM   ERRORS
default        *        virtualbox   Running   tcp://
machine-dev    -        virtualbox   Running   tcp://
machine-test   -        virtualbox   Running   tcp://

Where default is the active machine (is marked with *), then the will be the IP Address to be used as <WSO2_HOST_IP>.

6) Attach to a running container:

$ docker attach --no-stdin=false wso2esb01a

Where --no-stdin=false means to enable the pseudo-TTY and to release shell, just send Ctrl+C.

7) Get a Shell/SSH session from a running container:

$ docker exec -i -t wso2esb01a bash
root@4689e1574550:/opt/wso2esb01a/bin# ls
README.txt  ciphertool.bat                tcpmon.bat            version.txt    wso2carbon-version.txt  wso2server.bat
build.xml    chpasswd.bat   org.wso2.carbon.bootstrap-4.2.0.jar            wsdl2java.bat  wso2esb-samples.bat
carbondump.bat    java2wsdl.bat   tcpmon-1.0.jar                tomcat-juli-7.0.34.jar       yajsw

... and tailing the wso2carbon.log:

root@4689e1574550:/opt/wso2esb01a/bin# tail -f ../repository/logs/wso2carbon.log
