Brief explanation of TestProject's docker container.
A Docker container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application, starting from code and system tools to even system libraries and settings.
Containerized software will always run the same, regardless of the infrastructure. Containers isolate software from its environment and ensure that it works uniformly.
The TestProject Agent docker container can be used in two distinct ways:
The first one being as a Permanent Execution Engine - In this scenario the agent is registered once, and then can be used to execute tests and jobs from the TestProject web application.
The second one being as a Ephemeral Instance - In this scenario the agent is started up in order to perform a specific task, and will self terminate upon completion of said task.
The operation mode of the agent is controlled by environment variables that are passed to the container upon creation.
