Como me mantenho atualizado sobre a onda Containers, Docker e afins…


Neste post quero compartilhar algumas referências que venho utilizando para, não apenas aprender, mas principalmente me manter atualizado sobre o tópico Containers, Docker, Kubernetes (orquestração) e afins…

Como tudo tem um início, segue alguns links interessantes pra quem está començando no assunto. O site é uma excelente fonte pois reúne o que há de mais relevante no mundo Open Source. Abaixo alguns artigos para conhecer Docker:



O Site CenturyLink Labs também disponibiliza artigos exelentes escritos pelos principais especialistas no assunto.centurylink labs

Para quem está interessando em desenvolver aplicações nesse novo paradigma de Cloud e Containers sugiro seguir o Blog do Arun Gupta:

Installing the OpenJDK 7 in a RHEL 7 Docker Image: systemd dep issue

Hello guys!


Maybe you are thinking… WTF! Why have this guy written this post in English?!

I think this is my first blog post in this blog written in en_US. The motivation is simple. The subject (Docker and all the related things around it) is attracting almost all the attention of IT at this moment. So the basic idea is to help more people that might face the same issue described in this post.

So, please ignore any language/typo mistake.



For those trying to build a RHEL 7 Docker Base Image with Java 7 support (OpenJDK 7 packages), the openjdk pkgs depends on systemd. When you try to install the openjdk via yum you may see the following error:

bash-4.2# yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64 java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel.x86_64

'Transaction check error:

The rhel7 official base image includes a fakesystemd (from @koji-override-0/7.0 repo) instead of full systemd. I’m not sure if this fafesystemd pkg is shipped with rhel 7 docker base image (I have to check to confirm). I saw some blogs posts saying it is used to avoid a number of bad implications with running full systemd on Docker Containers. I thik it come as a dependence with the openssh-server pkg I’ve installed before. This fakesystemd provides only some fake files to satisfy some other pkgs requirements that depends on systemd service:

bash-4.2# rpm -ql fakesystemd-1-14.el7.x86_64

The workaround I’ve found for now is to remove the fakesystemd in order to be able to install the openjdk packages.

bash-4.2# yum remove fakesystemd-1-14.el7.x86_64

As I mentioned before to avoid the issues with the full systemd inside Docker containers I followed this approach:

Well, I hope this could help you.
