Welcome to this module on getting started with Fusion Metadata Registry and specifically how to run the software in Docker.
Fusion Metadata Registry (FMR) is a free to use software tool for working with SDMX structures and data.
You’ll need two things to start working effectively with FMR:
FMR is a Java web application so it will run on a range of computing platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux. However, it requires a number of other software components including a Java runtime environment, a Java web application server and a SQL database service such as MySQL or SQL Server.
Fortunately there is a simpler way to get working in less than 10 minutes - running FMR as a Docker container.
This module will help you learn about what FMR is, the use cases it serves, SDMX information model fundamentals and the how to run FMR in Docker.
A basic understanding of the core SDMX concepts and the key metadata structures would be helpful including: Data Structure Definition, Concept, Codelist and Dataflow.
