Let us directly move into Running WSO2 Enterprise Integrator image on Docker.

  1. Run the WSO2EI-6.5.0 on the docker. Since this image is not available in the local file system, it will be pulled and the ports will be mapped as specified. You can see the server is getting started in the terminal since we are using ‘-it’ option here.
docker run -it \
-p 8280:8280 \
-p 8243:8243 \
-p 9443:9443 \

2. Open another tab instance and find the id/name of the container by using the following command which will list the currently running containers.

docker ps

3. You will get an output like below.

CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                    COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                                                              NAMESf7a69a128d41        wso2/wso2ei-integrator   "/home/wso2carbon/do…"   2 hours ago         Up 7 seconds>8243/tcp,>8280/tcp, 4100/tcp,>9443/tcp   condescending_borg

4. Now you can access the file system as below. Note that our container ID is f7a69a128d41.

docker exec -it <container name/ID> bash

It will be as below.

docker exec -it f7a69a128d41 bash

5. You will get the below output.

6. Now you can access folders as usual.

cd /home/wso2carbon/wso2ei-6.5.0
