Context: Using Nomad to orchestrate Java applications (Tomcat, using
exec), with Consul providing the service mesh.
How do sidecar proxies (specifically Envoy) work without containers? I’d like to run a group of Tomcat servers using Nomad’s
exec driver. Following the service mesh idioms I should have a sidecar running with each instance of Tomcat. Is this possible at all, given that Tomcat will not be running inside containers?
I’m very new to Nomad and Consul. Do point me in the right direction if this has been answered elsewhere.
Thanks in advance.
