I suspect that due to Docker-in-Docker scenario, it will be easier to use java+jar (+local docker) instead of running the jar in a container.
Today you can start the jar with only java <jar>, but you will need a bunch of parameters (probably different per OS?) to run it in a container, I think. Local docker client is switched per OS here https://github.com/apache/openwhisk/blob/231e739373ef681c44b5647a6956d5838a87db2e/core/invoker/src/main/scala/org/apache/openwhisk/core/containerpool/docker/StandaloneDockerContainerFactory.scala#L37 I guess this wouldn't apply if running in a container, but it arguably makes running the jar simpler than running the container IMHO. I also suspect you won't get the behavior of launching playground ui to browser either, which I would miss. Tyson On 11/9/19, 5:38 AM, "Michele Sciabarra" <mich...@sciabarra.com> wrote: Wow. I missed those evolutions. So I guess it should not be hard to package it as a docker image. To be able to say to people: execute "docker run -p 8080:8080 openwhisk/standalone" and enjoy... If it is possible I can volounteer to write the dockerfile do that... I have a question: does it use the local docker?

So I wonder: is it now possible to run (for development purposes of course) OpenWhisk as single docker image if we add also couchdb to that one? Because I have an use case where even a docker-compose can be inconvenient... > > -- > Michele Sciabarra > mich...@sciabarra.com
