Short Description
Oracle Java 8 (and 7) with GLIBC 2.23 over AlpineLinux
Full Description

Minified Docker image with Java

Basic Docker image to run Java applications.
This image is based on AlpineLinux to keep the size down, yet smaller images do exist.
Includes BASH, since many Java applications like to have convoluted BASH start-up scripts.


All tags upgraded to alpine:3.4
Latest tags are based on alpine:3.7.


To allow selection of specific Java version, a major retagging is taking place.
Old tags will remain for compatibility sake, but are no longer documented.
:8,:7 and :latest are all valid, but are not "locked" to any specific Java version / patch set - i.e. depending on when you pull the :8 tagged image, for example, you might end up with 8u102b14, 8u112b15, 8u121b13, etc..
Well, :7 no as much, since it's EOL and no more patches are released.

However specific :8uXXXbYY tags (such as :8u102b14, :8u112b15) will guarantee particular MAJOR-MINOR-BUILD Java versions.
