Docker File No such file or directory – Absolute Path issue

  directory, docker, dockerfile, file

Writing because I have a stranger problem with Docker File process

The problem is regarding Docker File Context. As far as I understood the directory context that I can access from Dockerfiles is one directory up and one directory down

Example Directory Tree

A – B – C – D – E

If my docketfile is on C
I can access B D
But I can’t access A E

I have a problem because this is my case

My Docker file is on C
And I need to access files from B D E
And I really don’t know how to do it

I need to access it
Becaiuse my target jar is on E
And I need to do an ADD to this file to implementing docket hot deploy with Spring Dev Tools

Somenthing like on Docker

ADD .DEjar.file jar.file
ENtrypoint xxx
Expose xxx

And I still need to access B to get some other files.

Was Clear?

Sorry I know is strange
