Build the application locally
You can build and run the application as you normally would using
mvn for Java local development or
npm for Node. You can also build a docker image and run the application in a container to ensure consistent execution locally and on the cloud. Use the following steps to build your docker image.
- Ensure your local Docker engine is started.
- Change to the generated project directory.
cd <project name>
Build the application.
ibmcloud dev build --trace
This might take a few minutes to run as all the application dependencies are downloaded and a Docker image, which contains your application and all the required environment, is built.
