The CMD command we saw earlier followed the Shell syntax:

  CMD executable parameter1 parameter2

However, it is better practice to use the JSON array format:

  CMD ["executable", "parameter1", "parameter2"]

A CMD command can be overridden by providing the executable and its parameters in the docker ​run command. For example:

  FROM ubuntu
RUN apt-get update
CMD ["echo" , "Join CloudNativeFolks Community"]
