Ubuntu Local Starter Projects Setup

System Setup

Below are the minimum setup steps required to get the Backend Flex Package API Starter Project running on a fresh installation of Ubuntu (tested against Ubuntu 20.04 LTS: 4 vCPUs + 16 GB memory and 8 vCPUs + 32 GB memory [recommended] machine types)

1. Install Java

$ sudo apt install openjdk-11-jre-headless

2. Install Docker

$ sudo apt-get install \
   apt-transport-https \
   ca-certificates \
   curl \
   gnupg \
$ curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg
$ echo \
"deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \
$(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
3. Install Docker Compose
$ sudo curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.29.2/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

4. Setup Broadleaf Microservice Nexus Credentials

$ cd ~
$ mkdir .m2
$ cd ~/.m2
$ vi settings.xml
<settings xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/SETTINGS/1.1.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/settings-1.1.0.xsd" xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/SETTINGS/1.1.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

5. Setup Broadleaf Microservice Docker Registry Credentials (type in provided user and password)

$ sudo docker login repository.broadleafcommerce.com:5001

6. Configure /etc/hosts local workarounds to support Microservices Starter Projects setup. 

$ sudo vi /etc/hosts

Make sure to add the following in your /etc/hosts if not there already. Note: see https://ms-support.broadleafcommerce.com/article/71-unable-to-connect-to-host-docker-internal for more details around host.docker.internal, this can be updated or removed if providing a different workaround as mentioned in the article. localsolr host.docker.internal
$ sudo touch /etc/hosts
