IBM Integration Bus on Docker - Story of a tinkerer

Following this recipe: -

I started by pulling the Git repo: -

and then built the Docker image: -

cd iib-docker/

ls -al

total 32

drwxr-xr-x  4 davidhay  staff   128 10 May 13:33 ..

-rw-r--r--  1 davidhay  staff  2611 10 May 13:33

docker build -t iibv10image .

and spun up a container: -

docker run --name myNode -e LICENSE=accept -e NODENAME=MYNODE -P iibv10image

Running - stop container to exit

and then checked for the listening ( and mapped ) ports: -

docker port myNode

4414/tcp ->
7800/tcp ->

and then hit up IIB: -


Having deployed a Broker Archive (BAR) file to the Integration Server, I was able to hit my flow: -

Nice !

leads me to believe that I could use other versions of IIB or even AppConnect Enterprise (ACE), which is kinda like IIB v11: -
