Getting up and running with local development for Red Hat Mobile Application requires that you run MongoDB and Redis locally. Doing so isn’t particularly difficult if you follow online guides, but it would be much more straightforward if you could just get these pieces of software up and running in a single command and not need to worry about versioning, creating data directories, setting permissions, and compiling some things such as Redis from source. It would be even better if you could easily switch versions. This is where containers shine.
In the next few paragraphs, we’ll demonstrate how you can run any almost any version of MongoDB and Redis with a single command on a machine that has the Docker service installed.
NOTE: This is not an extensive Docker CLI tutorial; just enough to learn basic commands that will allow you to get MongoDB and Redis up and running easily.

Expanding on Tristan’s blog, where he spoke of enabling security for JBoss Data Grid caches, in this post we will cover how to add LDAP based security to the JDG caches. The principles and techniques remain defined by Tristan, but there are some minor changes that I will be highlighting in this blog for a successful working configuration of JDG enabled with LDAP security.

I like Node.js and I like Docker. While I am not an expert on either, I do pretend to be one at work.
Lately, I’ve been looking at Openshift CDK and how I can develop Node.js apps against it. Specifically, I was looking at the MSA Hello World Demo and the Bonjour microservice.
I also recently wrote about setting up a CDK environment on a freshly re-installed MacBook Pro. I would check it out; it’s some good writing.
My initial goal was to figure out how to “containerize” a Node.js application and then put it on my local openshift VM, but when I started to look at it little deeper, I found a few different ways of doing it. Hopefully, this post will go into the different ways.
