    There are a number of ways, usually involving an external script or other such system to collect information (such as port mappings) from one container, by parsing the json info or getting the port mappings, and passing that into a new container that would use it to connect to the first. There are examples of that in the documentation and examples section.

    With v0.6.5, released 2013-10-31, Docker is adding the ability to coordinate some of this within itself. For now (2013-11-01), the blog post has most of the information on how to use it, but keep you eye on the documention for more.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
