Hi,
we are using ANT build tool to build our application, our build.xml script file have multiple input parameter when we ran ANT then it asks multiple times yes/no questions..
But same application we build using docker file then it do not ask any question.
Please see my dockerfile sample below:

FROM openjdk:6

MAINTAINER Rama

ENV CATALINA_HOME /usr/local/tomcat
ENV PATH $CATALINA_HOME/bin:$PATH

RUN mkdir -p "$CATALINA_HOME"
WORKDIR $CATALINA_HOME

# Tomcat folder creation inside Docker container
COPY tomcat   $CATALINA_HOME

ENV ANT_HOME /usr/local/ant
ENV PATH ${PATH}:/usr/local/ant/bin

# Added ANT tool from host to docker container
ADD apache-ant-1.7.0 /usr/local/ant

# Added application from host to docker container
# TempProject contains build.xml , src and webroot
ADD TempProject /usr/local/TempProject  

WORKDIR /usr/local/TempProject 

RUN ant

so when ANT run inside docker file then it do not ask any question at console whereas in normal it asks.

we are using docker build command as below to build application (it makes images)
docker build --tag=myApp .

Please guide us in which way we can get console input for images.

Thanks
Rama
