Containerization

Jolie programming language does not directly deal with the containerization process, but it layers upon other technology frameworks in order to deploy jolie microservices inside a container. At the present, we only investigated the integration with Docker. In particular, we investigated the integration with Docker following two different approaches:

  • Deploying a Jolie microservice as a Docker container.

  • Using Jolie as orchestration language for controlling Docker. To this end we developed a Jolie wrapper for the Docker API which is called Jocker. Thanks to Jocker it is possible to call the Docker APIs using the protocol sodep.
