  • Hello,  this is a quite nice article. Microapp and docker concepts are really popping up and your article tends to describe a quite easy process to "dockerize" an old app.

    I will have some little concerns that don.t look that much obvious in your post:

    * how docker figures out the version of Windows server (actually 2003) that the app runs in?

    * how the version of sql server dependency is specified ? Because there could version specific sql out there?

    * and finally how docker itself is obtained on the host machine?

    Thanks for your feedback

  • KSharkey, how does it work if my app needs (for example) SQL Enterprise edition? I understand there's a public SQL Express image on the hub, but I'm curious about the non-free versions. How do I obtain an image like that, and how does the licensing work?
