What's Causing This Error

There can be many reasons why this kind of error arises when trying to run the DynamoDB Local service in a Docker container. For instance, it can be due to an incorrect image name, an issue with port mapping, volume mapping, or a network issue.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

The way to resolve this error depends on the root cause of the issue. For instance, you can start by rechecking and verifying the below points to determine the cause and take appropriate actions.

  • Ensure your docker run command contains the correct image name for DynamoDB Local (amazon/dynamodb-local).
  • Ensure that you are mapping the accurate host port to the container's exposed port. DynamoDB local uses port 8000 by default.
  • Run docker ps to check whether the container is running and ensure there is no network issue.

In addition, you can look for insufficient memory issues, volume mapping, and configuration issues to resolve this error.
