And yes the image is big, we can modify the Dockerfile to remove some maven stuff and make
it smaller.
Maybe even just run the jar like Ian has done for devcloud.

Correct. I just did it for devs…this is not meant for any type of prod

You can create a mgt server image and then link it to two or one mysql containers.
the mgt server image can be setup with the packages.

I ran into problems with IP tables etc. since our setup scripts are not meant for containers.

you could have dockerfiles and an auto  build in docker hub.
Just use the build trigger in docker hub to setup a hook in the jenkins job that builds the
latest packages.

You could put the dockerfile in /tools or something
