Quick Start

This quick start will focus on running all dependencies and the MMS application as docker containers. This is most suitable for testing environments. For production deployments, we recommend the MMS Reference Implementation as a starting point.


We suggest using Docker to set up PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch. Installation instructions are found here: Docker documentation
Java SE Development Kit 11+
Installation instructions: JDK-11 download
Postgresql or Mysql 5.7

Install postgres (PostgreSQL) 11, instructions for Docker: PostgreSQL with Docker

docker run -d -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=test1234 -e POSTGRES_USER=mmsuser -e POSTGRES_DB=mms -p 5432:5432 --name=postgres postgres:11-alpine

Or mysql: Mysql with Docker

docker run -d -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=test1234 -e MYSQL_DATABASE=mms -p 3306:3306 --name=mysql mysql:5.7

Install Elasticsearch 7.8. If you use Docker instructions are available here: Setting up Elasticsearch with Docker

docker run -d -p 9200:9200 -p 9300:9300 -e "discovery.type=single-node" --name=elasticsearch docker.elastic.co/elasticsearch/elasticsearch:7.8.1

Install MinIO for artifact storage. Instructions for MinIO

docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -e "MINIO_ACCESS_KEY=admintest" -e "MINIO_SECRET_KEY=admintest" --name=minio minio/minio server /data

Running MMS

Configure the application
Each module of MMS can define configuration properties required to function. These properties can be defined in a single location, by default, called application.properties. Place application.properties in the classpath for MMS to use the defined values. For an example, see example application.properties Alternatively, the properties file can be given by defining the environment variable SPRING_CONFIG_LOCATION.
Run the application

First, create a container from an MMS image. In the example below, the container is using the host network for simplicity.

docker create --name=mms --network="host" -e "SPRING_CONFIG_LOCATION=/mms.properties" openmbee/mms:4.0.0-b5
Copy properties

If using the above command, copy the properties file to the defined spring config location.

docker cp mms.properties mms:/mms.properties
Start the container

Finally, start the container with the injected properties file.

docker start mms
