The easiest way to start publishing and subscribing with PubSub+ Standard is by launching a Docker container, so before you start, you need to have Docker installed on your host machine.
Don’t have Docker? Go to Docker – Get Started.
Already installed Docker? Proceed to step 2.
Pull the message broker image from the Docker repository and start a container instance using these two steps:
docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 55555:55555 -p:8008:8008 -p:1883:1883 -p:8000:8000 -p:5672:5672 -p:9000:9000 -p:2222:2222 --shm-size=2g --env username_admin_globalaccesslevel=admin --env username_admin_password=admin --name=solace solace/solace-pubsub-standard
This command starts a message broker container named solace, using the latest PubSub+ Standard image pulled from Docker Hub, creates an admin user with global access permissions, and publishes the following message broker container ports to the same ports on your host machine:
