Date Mon, 06 Oct 2014 19:16:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BUILDS-25?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14160757#comment-14160757

Andrew Bayer commented on BUILDS-25:

Sorry, wasn't clear - gotta disconnect/reconnect the slaves once after we initially install
docker, to make sure jenkins logs out/logs back in to pick up the new group membership.

> Docker (https://www.docker.com/) provides a very powerful set of tools around extremely
lightweight container environments. This is extremely useful in situations where builds need
to be performed in presence of certain system-level build dependencies and on different flavors
of Linux.
> With Docker, one can simply execute the following command as an entry point into a build
> {noformat}
> docker run -v `pwd`:/ws $DOCKER_IMAGE bash -c 'cd /ws ; make foo'
> {noformat}
> and not require pollution of Jenkins slaves with system dependencies and installation
of new slaves. E.g. DOCKER_IMAGE=fedora would give you the latest fedora build environment.
> It would be extremely useful to provide Docker service on ASF build slaves. Please let
me know how can I help.
