Getting EAP Container image

Once that you have a Red Hat account (paid or free subscription), you can also pull EAP Container image from Red Hat Container Catalog.

$ docker login registry.redhat.io
Login Succeeded!

This will allow you to pull the EAP image as follows:

$ docker pull registry.redhat.io/jboss-eap-7/eap74-openjdk17-openshift-rhel8:7.4.11-3.1687184251

Then you can run it with:

$ docker run -it --rm registry.redhat.io/jboss-eap-7/eap74-openjdk17-openshift-rhel8:7.4.11-3.1687184251
