CircleCI 2.0

Your CircleCI configuration should use a dedicated VM for testcontainers to work. You can achieve this by specifying the executor type in your .circleci/config.yml to be machine instead of the default docker executor ( see Choosing an Executor Type for more info ).

Here is a sample CircleCI configuration that does a checkout of a project and runs maven:

# Check https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/language-java/ for more details
#
version: 2
executorType: machine
jobs:
  build:
    steps:
      - checkout

      - run: mvn -B clean install
