About using docker

A new docker image and container will be created once users right clicking on the liferay gradle workspace project and select init portal docker bundle, as well as a liferay docker server in servers view.


Same as starting a liferay server, users can click the icons to start the docker server in normal mode or in debug mode.

Right clicking on the project and selecting liferay > Docker Deploy to deploy a project to the docker server. Users can check the related messages in console once the project is deployed, they also can open gogo shell through right clicking on the docker server and select open gogo shell option.
