Chapter 5. Running .NET 8.0 applications in containers

Use the ubi8/dotnet-80-runtime image to run a .NET application inside a Linux container.

The following example uses podman.

Procedure

  1. Create a new MVC project in a directory called mvc_runtime_example:

    $ dotnet new mvc --output mvc_runtime_example
  2. Publish the project:

    $ dotnet publish mvc_runtime_example -f net8.0 /p:PublishProfile=DefaultContainer /p:ContainerBaseImage=registry.access.redhat.com/ubi8/dotnet-80-runtime:latest
  3. Run your image:

    $ podman run --rm -p8080:8080 mvc_runtime_example

Verification steps

  • View the application running in the container:

    $ xdg-open http://127.0.0.1:8080
