What is Maven?

Apache Maven is a software project management and comprehension tool. Based on the concept of a project object model (POM), Maven can manage a project's build, reporting and documentation from a central piece of information.

How to use this image

Create a Dockerfile in your Maven project

FROM maven:3.2-jdk-7-onbuild
CMD ["do-something-with-built-packages"]

Put this file in the root of your project, next to the pom.xml.

This image includes multiple ONBUILD triggers which should be all you need to bootstrap. The build will COPY . /usr/src/app and RUN mvn install.

You can then build and run the image:

docker build -t my-maven .
docker run -it --name my-maven-script my-maven

Run a single Maven command

For many simple projects, you may find it inconvenient to write a complete Dockerfile. In such cases, you can run a Maven project by using the Maven Docker image directly, passing a Maven command to docker run:

docker run -it --rm --name my-maven-project -v "$PWD":/usr/src/mymaven -w /usr/src/mymaven maven:3.2-jdk-7 mvn clean install

Image Variants

The maven images come in many flavors, each designed for a specific use case.

maven:

This is the defacto image. If you are unsure about what your needs are, you probably want to use this one. It is designed to be used both as a throw away container (mount your source code and start the container to start your app), as well as the base to build other images off of.

maven:onbuild

This image makes building derivative images easier. For most use cases, creating a Dockerfile in the base of your project directory with the line FROM maven:onbuild will be enough to create a stand-alone image for your project.
