docker-composeDocker-compose multi-container example with default network


By default Compose sets up a single network for your app. Each container for a service joins the default network and is both reachable by other containers on that network, and discoverable by them at a hostname identical to the container name.

Links allow you to define extra aliases by which a service is reachable from another service. They are not required to enable services to communicate – by default, any service can reach any other service at that service’s name.
