Can the developer freemium edition of ThingWorx be run inside of docker?
I did a search of the forum and got a small number of hits but nothing directly on the developer version that does not use Postgres.
It is very easy to run tomcat in a container but I am not sure of the installation of ThingWorx. There is a need to have a self-signed certificate for example.
Has anyone done the installation of the developer edition this way?
One of the discussions in this forum had a message with an attached file of instructions for docker and ThingWorx but that link is broken now. And I think this applied to a full version of ThingWorx rather than the developer version.
Any pointers appreciated.
I will try to muddle through with an attempt to do this and will report back any success I have.
I don't want to build my own dockerfile but use a docker-ized Tomcat container and then map folders on my host to the container filesystem using volume bindings; e.g. user a docker-compose yaml file.

I would agree that docker is a great approach for testing, teaching, and learning ThingWorx. You can spin up a test ThingWorx instance in a matter of seconds (literally) with a quick `docker run` command and can even spin up PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc to pair with ThingWorx for testing various scenarios.
We use docker build files instead and then push the image to a private repository for other people in our organization to use. For them, it's a one-line command to run a new ThingWorx instance.
