Apache Archiva on Docker

I tried Apache Archiva in a Docker container this evening. I was hoping that it would be a good alternative to Nexus. Once I got it running in the container I realized that it really does not support all the features that I use in Nexus.

The container I used (I won’t bash the author) kept wanting to only publish on even though I was telling it to use the host IP address on 8080. After getting it up and running, I decided not to try and fix it though.

I wanted to play with it for a couple of hours, and I concluded that it would not work for me. There is a lot of promise though. I will come back and examine it at a later time.
