A few months ago Szabi created start and stop scripts for docker-compose,
to run 3rd party DBs for the 3rd party tests, which is great ( it's
intention is to make the integration testing of Sqoop much easier ).
Though the version of docker-compose file is 3+, thus it's only usable with
the quite recent docker-compose+docker versions.
And here comes the problem:
The latest version of CentOS (7.4) by default comes a much older
Docker+Docker-compose version, which is incompatible with the compose file
version. So out of the box, this solution won't work on the latest CentOS
version for example (I've discovered it b/c one of my test servers runs
I'm not telling it's impossible to install it from the net (first docker
and then docker compose), but it's just not the standard/convenient/stable
solution which would come from the RPM package.
Here comes my question:
What do you think: is it possible, and would it make sense to rewrite the
docker compose file to version 2, and thus providing an EZ way to use this
feature by the majority of the Linux users? Is there any vital feature in
version 3 what is required for this task?
Keeping it simple:
Would it be possible to provide a much wider usable version of this docker
based testing solution, or would we like to keep and handle it as an
experimental testing feature?
