VIVO Docker

This project contains code for dockerizing VIVO. In particular, it supports creating the containers to compile and deploy the VIVO application; to extend the application with GWU specific configuration, including a local ontology, for use as an example for extending the app image for local setting; to instantiate a MySQL db; to instantiate an instance of Tomcat for the app to run in; and to provide an environment for loading VIVO.
