I am trying to run tests on a Windows runner where my application is installed. I also need a postgres database. Since there are no official postgres images for Windows Container I am out of luck. I tried to build one myself but so far it does not work.
I was wondering if there is any way to run the job image on Windows while a service of a job runs on Linux. Is that possible?
test windows: stage: test image: internal.registry/win-test-image:1 tags: # make sure this job only starts on runners with Windows - windows script: - ./gradlew test --no-daemon artifacts: when: on_success expire_in: "1 days" paths: - logs reports: junit: build\\test-results\\test\\TEST-*.xml
But when I add:
variables: POSTGRES_DB: pgsql POSTGRES_USER: pgsql POSTGRES_PASSWORD: password POSTGRES_HOST_AUTH_METHOD: trust services: - postgres:15.4-alpine
it fails. My guess is, that such a combination is not possible.
