Hi @joko71 

Unfortunately that reply from DavisHale1 (now banned) was spam - I've removed the comment & also edited out the hyperlink in your copied response.

Re: How to deploy amps on dockered Alfresco?

I've exported these folders to my volumes folder which are key for web script deployment:

docker cp docker-alfresco_alfresco_1:/usr/local/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension ./volumes/webscript_context
docker cp docker-alfresco_alfresco_1:/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes ./volumes/webscript_classes
docker cp docker-alfresco_alfresco_1:/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib ./volumes/webscript_libs

I'll try to deploy Java code, JARs and XML in their respective folders and see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Again: I don't think this is the right way of doing that.

You could do easilier by following some of the recommendations we gave you before.

I appreciate what you're saying, but rebuilding image every time code is updated it seems like overkill to me. If this fails, I can always revert.

Update: This approach works.

I've made a test webscript and deployed it on my volumes and it works.

Only one has to be careful with Linux volume permissions, because Alfresco will complain and not work when docker-compose is started.

Hi @joko71 

Glad you've found a workable solution! If you think this would be useful to other people, would you be willing to write up your method, etc? 

Take care,

Maybe I will, it's still early to tell if this actually works. Everything is empty, Alfresco and a server which is to communicate with it.
