Full Description

This Dockerfile is a trusted build of Docker Registry.


docker pull sath89/oracle-xe-11g

Run with 8080 and 1521 ports opened:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 1521:1521 sath89/oracle-xe-11g

Run with data on host and reuse it:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 1521:1521 -v /my/oracle/data:/u01/app/oracle sath89/oracle-xe-11g

Run with customization of processes, sessions, transactions
This customization is needed on the database initialization stage. If you are using mounted folder with DB files this is not used:

##Consider this formula before customizing:
docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 1521:1521 -v /my/oracle/data:/u01/app/oracle\
-e processes=1000 \
-e sessions=1105 \
-e transactions=1215 \

Run with custom sys password:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 1521:1521 -e DEFAULT_SYS_PASS=sYs-p@ssw0rd sath89/oracle-xe-11g

Connect database with following setting:

hostname: localhost
port: 1521
sid: xe
username: system
password: oracle

Password for SYS & SYSTEM:


Connect to Oracle Application Express web management console with following settings:

workspace: INTERNAL

In case of using DMP imports dump file should be named like ${IMPORT_SCHEME_NAME}.dmp
User credentials for imports are ${IMPORT_SCHEME_NAME}/${IMPORT_SCHEME_NAME}
