What is Zulu?
Zulu is a widely available binary distribution of OpenJDK. Zulu distributions are fully tested and compatibility verified builds of the latest versions of the OpenJDK 8, 7, and 6 platforms. Zulu is available free of charge for Linux, Windows, and MacOS platforms, with commercial support available upon request.
Zulu is built, tested, supported and made available by Azul Systems.
The Zulu repository azul/zulu-openjdk provides multiple tagged images. The latest Zulu OpenJDK 8, 7, and 6 versions are:
Earlier Zulu OpenJDK 8, 7, and 6 releases can be found at:
This Zulu repository supports multiple versions of OpenJDK-based Java SE JDKs. Zulu versions 8, 7, and 6 are compliant with Java SE 8, Java SE 7, and Java SE 6, respectively.
For example, you can run a Zulu OpenJDK 8 container with the following command:
docker run -it --rm azul/zulu-openjdk:8 java -version
Similarly, you can run a Zulu OpenJDK 7 container with the following command:
docker run -it --rm azul/zulu-openjdk:7 java -version
And you can run a Zulu OpenJDK 6 container with the following command:
docker run -it --rm azul/zulu-openjdk:6 java -version
Would it make sense to base these images on "debian:wheezy"? Does the "ubuntu" image provide any advantage? The debian image is 88MB while the ubuntu image is 199MB.
Thank you for making this images. I pull :8 and saw the correct version. However, when I use "azul/zulu-openjdk:7" it displays "1.8.0_25" as the version. It seems to be using the :8 image because "docker images" only shows one image.
