Pipelines: gcloud datastore emulator as background process?


Hi all!

I would like to establish a Bitbucket Pipelines step that runs integration tests against an emulated database (Google Datastore).


This is the emulator, which can be started via the Google Cloud SDK:


Once the emulator is running, starting the tests should be as easy as calling

mvn verify -Pintegrationtestprofile 


I found an image where both maven and gcloud come preinstalled.

The question is: how can I start the emulator as a background process so that I can start the maven execution in the main thread? I haven't been able to set up the emulator as a pipeline service (it requires an init and a start command).
