Subject Re: quick docker image startup?
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2018 13:34:02 GMT
Oh .. that would be hard to debug without further analysis. Essentially
Java is not seeing libraries in the classpath. The classpath is defined
_inside_ the jar file with pointers to where the gradle cache is located.

So it could be many things, maybe you did not make a first run with gradle
to download the cache, or maybe you have different users inside the
container each with their own cache directory. Another possibility is that
you mounted a volume on top of the downloaded cache.

Thanks Taher, for the extended reply.

currently I have tried the most simple one:
java -jar build/libs/ofbiz.jar

this works outside the docker image, however within the running container
it gives the error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
        at org.apache.ofbiz.base.start.Start.main(Start.java:60)
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.commons.cli.ParseEx

        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:357)
        ... 1 more

perhaps you have a suggestion for me?

thanks again for your help.
