Source-to-Image builder image for Nuxeo projects
Full Description

S2I builder image for Nuxeo projects

Getting started

This builder image allows to run Source to image on a Maven Nuxeo project.

Basically, given a Nuxeo project on Github, you can directly build a Docker image of your project with

s2i nuxeo/s2i sample-project
docker run -ti -p 8080:8080 sample-project

Environment variables

Some environment variables may be passe with the -e option to s2i to configure the build

Variable Name default Description
ARTIFACT_DIR target define the directory to find JAR to be deployed in the bundle directory
NUXEO_PACKAGE define a package to be installed in the image (ex: marketplace/target/mymarketplace-*.zip
NUXEO_SMOKE_TEST false define if a smoke test is run at the end of the build

Additionnaly you can put a .nuxeo-s2i file in your project to set the value of those variables instead of using -e flag of s2i.

Files and Directories

File Description
Dockerfile Defines the base builder image
s2i/bin/assemble Script that builds the application
s2i/bin/usage Script that prints the usage of the builder
s2i/bin/run Script that runs the application
s2i/bin/save-artifacts Script for incremental builds that saves the built artifacts
test/run Test script for the builder image
test/test-app Test application source code

Create the builder image

The following command will create a builder image named nuxeo-s2i based on the Dockerfile that was created previously.

docker build -t nuxeo-s2i .

The builder image can also be created by using the make command since a Makefile is included.

Once the image has finished building, the command s2i usage nuxeo-s2i will print out the help info that was defined in the usage script.

Testing the builder image

The builder image can be tested using the following commands:

docker build -t nuxeo-s2i-candidate .
IMAGE_NAME=nuxeo-s2i-candidate test/run

The builder image can also be tested by using the make test command since a Makefile is included.

Creating the application image

The application image combines the builder image with your applications source code, which is served using whatever application is installed via the Dockerfile, compiled using the assemble script, and run using the run script.
The following command will create the application image:

s2i build test/test-app nuxeo-s2i nuxeo-s2i-app
---> Building and installing application from source...

Running the application image

Running the application image is as simple as invoking the docker run command:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 nuxeo-s2i-app

The application, which consists of a simple static web page, should now be accessible at http://localhost:8080.

Using the saved artifacts script

Rebuilding the application using the saved artifacts can be accomplished using the following command:

s2i build --incremental=true test/test-app nginx-centos7 nginx-app
---> Restoring build artifacts...
---> Building and installing application from source...
