1.1 Oracle Internet Directory on Docker

Docker is a platform that enables you to build, package, ship and run distributed applications. You can package your applications and any dependent libraries or files into a Docker image.

Container images are portable artifacts that can be distributed across environments. Images that have been distributed can be used to instantiate containers where applications can run in isolation from other applications running in other containers on the same host operating system.

You can install Oracle Internet Directory container images in the following ways:

  • Download a prebuilt OID image from My Oracle Support by referring to the document ID 2723908.1. This image is prebuilt by Oracle and includes Oracle Internet Directory and the latest PSU.
  • Build your own Oracle Internet Directory container images either by using the WebLogic Image Tool or by using the dockerfile, scripts and base image from Oracle Container Registry (OCR). You can also build your own image by using only the dockerfile and scripts. For more information about the various ways in which you can build your own container image, see Building the Oracle Internet Directory Image.

After you install the Oracle Internet Directory container image, create and configure Oracle Internet Directory Docker containers as described in Creating Oracle Internet Directory Containers.
