New Beta Feature: Deep Dive into GitHub Actions Docker Builds with Docker Desktop
Docker Blog
by Colin Hemmings
3d ago
We’re excited to announce the beta release of a new feature for inspecting GitHub Actions builds directly in Docker Desktop 4.31.  Centralized CI/CD environments, such as GitHub Actions, are popular and useful, giving teams a single location to build, test, and verify their deployments. However, remote processes, such as builds in GitHub Actions, often lack visibility into what’s happening in your Docker builds. This means developers often need additional builds and steps to locate the root cause of issues, making diagnosing and resolving build issues challenging.  To help, we’re int ..read more

Develop Kubernetes Operators in Java without Breaking a Sweat
Docker Blog
by Alex Stockinger
2w ago
Developing Kubernetes operators in Java is not yet the norm. So far, Go has been the language of choice here, not least because of its excellent support for writing corresponding tests.  One challenge in developing Java-based projects has been the lack of easy automated integration testing that interacts with a Kubernetes API server. However, thanks to the open source library Kindcontainer, based on the widely used Testcontainers integration test library, this gap can be bridged, enabling easier development of Java-based Kubernetes projects.  In this article, we’ll show how to use Te ..read more

We are excited to announce that the latest BuildKit release, v0.13.0, contains experimental Windows Containers support. BuildKit has been around for many years and has been the default build engine on Linux since Docker Engine 23.0.0.  BuildKit is a toolkit for converting source code to build artifacts (like container images) in an efficient, expressive, and repeatable manner. BuildKit introduced the following benefits as compared with the previous Docker Builder: Parallelize building independent build stages and skip any unused stages. Incrementally transfer only the changed files in yo ..read more
