Process of using docker images in tasks


Could anyone explain the process about HOW I can use docker with my tasks?

simple example: I have a maven 3.x task to build some code, I installed maven in the bamboo server and pointed the executable in bamboo. 

But HOW would I use the maven docker image to build the code without having to install maven in the bamboo server? 

I am looking for the how, not for articles that explain what bamboo and docker are.

Use a docker container to run your instead of regular agent which runs on bamboo server. Make sure you docker container has maven and docker installed. 


This is the solution:

- set up a build plan and under "Default Job" on tab "Docker" and there I added maven:3.6.1-ibmjava-8-alpine as "Docker image", left everything else as is and pressed the "Save" button.


- added "Maven_Docker" under Overview >> Executables setting path /usr/share/maven which determines the Maven 3.x path inside the above mentioned Docker container


- First Bamboo task of this build plan needs to be a Source Code Checkout task of a Java project that shall be utilized for a Maven build.


- As second task I added Bamboo task Maven3.x, set "Maven_Docker" as Executable on its task configuration page and "JDK 1.8" (which is set on my Bamboo instance as a Server Capability) as "Build JDK. All other settings are untouched. 


- Finally I run this build plan and it started loading the Docker container, built the Java project utilizing the Docker container's Maven 3.x executable and finished with success.
