docker pull jenkins
More information about this image can be found in the Jenkins website Official Jenkins LTS docker image blog post by Michael Neale. Curiously this post also has a link to cloudbees/jenkins-ci.org-docker GitHub repository which contained a lot of useful information.
Running the official Jenkins image could not be simpler:
docker run -p 8080:8080 jenkins
At this point I decided to implement a Data Volume Container to provide simple back-up capabilites and to experiment with extending the official image to include some plugins via the core-support plugin format.
