Fair enough. Thanks

information to bind to an app. the service bindings are capable of
expressing more than just where the host is located, but also credentials,
ports, and other information relating to the service instance.

the cf diego networking team has service discovery on it's list of items,
but docker links assume certain things about service discovery that likely
will not work in other runtimes like cloud foundry or kubernetes.

Does Diego support Docker Container linkage?

For example, my current vanilla docker container is running with 2 linked
containers namely postgres and rabbitmq. If I have to maintain this linkage
on CF, should I drop the linkage in favour CF services or it'd just work

Appreciate your response

Thank you,
