Subject Re: Activemq on Docker

HI Noel, is Docker"Link hostnames" an option for you?

With Docker 1.11

running your container with this syntax

docker run -i -t --name this_container --link other_container:
other_container any_image

Is supposed to inject for you an entry in "this_container" /etc/hosts
pointing to the dynamic ip of "other_container".
