Docker for hosting Unified Views
Full Description

UnifiedViews docker

Docker for UnifiedViews 3.0.0 as a single entity.
There are variants in which the application is composed according to its natural components (feature/compactmodular branches).

The original master branch is now moved to 2.1.0 branch

Database setup

Unified Views requires an SQL database to store its configuration. If you want to run the SQL database in a Docker container, you can use MariaDB.

docker run --name my-mysql \
           -p 3306:3306 \
           -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=password \
           -e MYSQL_USER=unified_views_user \
           -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=unified_views_pwd \
           -e MYSQL_DATABASE=unified_views_db \
           -d mariadb

The following scripts must be executed on the SQL database to create the required tables and populate the Unified Views database before the Unified Views container is started:

Running your Unified Views

docker run --name unified-views \
    -p 8080:8080 --link my-mysql:mysql \
    -v /path/to/lib:/unified-views/lib \
    -v /path/to/dpus:/dpus \
    -e UV_DATABASE_SQL_URL=jdbc:mysql:// \
    -e UV_DATABASE_SQL_USER=unified_views_user \
    -e UV_DATABASE_SQL_PASSWORD=unified_views_pwd \
    -e MASTER_API_USER=master \
    -e MASTER_API_PASSWORD=mysecretpassword \
    -d tenforce/unified-views

Additional JAR libraries to be loaded on startup (for example DPU dependencies) should be mounted in /unified-views/lib. DPU JAR files mounted in /dpus will be installed automatically on container startup.

The Docker image exposes port 8080 (frontend) and 5001 (backend). The Unified Views GUI is available at http://docker-container-ip:8080/unifiedviews. The master REST API is available at http://docker-container-ip:8080/master.


All properties defined in and can be configured via the environment variables. The environment variable should be prefixed with UV_, in uppercase and all dots (.) in the property name should be converted to underscores (_). E.g. property should be configured as UV_FOO_BAR=BAZ.

The credentials of the master REST API can be configured via the environment variables UV_MASTER_API_USER and UV_MASTER_API_PASSWORD. They default to master and commander respectively.

If the SQL database is setup using a Docker container, the container should be linked as mysql to the Unified Views container. The SQL connection details can be configured using the following enviroment variables (default value between brackets): UV_DATABASE_SQL_URL (jdbc:mysql://mysql:3306/unified_views?characterEncoding=utf8), UV_DATABASE_SQL_USER (unified_views), UV_DATABASE_SQL_PASSWORD (unified_views).

Integrating Virtuoso

If the resulting RDF should be written to a Virtuoso running in a Docker container it might be helpful to link the Virtuoso container to the Unified Views container using the option --link my-virtuoso:virtuoso.

If you want to use Virtuoso instead of the local RDF store as RDF platform to run the Unified Views pipelines, you have to configure the following environment variables: UV_DATABASE_RDF_PLATFORM=virtuoso, UV_DATABASE_RDF_URL=jdbc:virtuoso://virtuoso:1111/charset=UTF-8/log_enable=2, UV_DATABASE_RDF_USER=dba, UV_DATABASE_RDF_PASSWORD=dba_pwd.
