Based on jeanblanchard/java these images contain essential additons not found in the normal JDK/JRE's.
At the current moment in time this consists of the LetsEncrypt CA Certs in the trust store, necessary for ourselves as we use LetsEncrypt ourselves and the standard JDK/JRE's don't support them yet.
There's three images:
- area51/java:jdk-8 The full JDK
- area51/java:jre-8 Just the Java Runtime Environment
- area51/java:serverjre-8 The server JRE
In most instances, you'll want to use area51/java:serverjre-8 for server side applications.
As of July 27 2015, the latest version is running Java 8 update 102 build 14
Note: This image is for Intel/AMD processors (i.e. most docker installations). For the Raspberry PI please see the area51/rpi-java image
- Java 8 update 92 build 14 is available by appending .92 to the tags, e.g. area51/java:serverjre-8.92
