Add support for ARM based processors (Apple M2) using a Docker Linux container with the odbc driver
When developing locally in a linux docker container that uses the IBM i Access ODBC driver the application has to be emulated and uses QEMU by setting platform: linux/x86_64 in the docker-compose.yml file. The docker daemon memory has to be increased to support it and all packages now have to use QEMU and the build process runs slowly. I believe the IBM i Access ODBC driver would need to be compiled for ARM64 Linux.
Here is the part of the docker build that fails and the error that comes back when the platform is not set to linux/x86_64. I'm assuming its because you don't support IBM i Access ODBC Driver on Linux on arm64 processors ?:
