Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Docker feature in Karaf container
Date Thu, 18 Jan 2018 10:13:55 GMT
Hi JB,

I think it's a good idea !

I'm agree with adding docker as a dedicated module in Karaf container
because it just use docker.

It would be also interesting to be able to create an image of Karaf from
the running instance :)
