DockerFile : Difference between ADD and COPY

As per this the following reference
I see no difference between ADD and COPY.
Please help me with a simple example explaining the difference.

  • Apache in Docker won't deliver sites
  • Docker Compose - Remove dangling service
  • Dockerfile for multiple Docker containers
  • Mount images with network volumes
  • Docker-machine cannot connect to default machine (Windows)
  • Is it possible to let ansible print each statement?
  • Docker: uwsgi service not recognised
  • Shared Memory with Docker containers (docker version 1.4.1)
  • Linking my custom docker container to another custom container
  • Getting User name + password to docker container
  • How do I access Windows eventlog of a Docker container
  • Docker-Squash command not working
  • One Solution collect form web for “DockerFile : Difference between ADD and COPY”

    Found the answer here: Docker COPY vs ADD

    • ADD allows <src> to be an URL
    • If the <src> parameter of ADD is an
      archive in a recognized compression format, it will be unpacked
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
