If you want a much smaller image, try delitescere/java for Zulu Embedded JRE "compact3" profile at just 73MB, or delitescere/jdk for full Zulu OpenJDK at just 165MB.

Thanks to Azul for supplying me the Zulu Embedded compact3 for Alpine Linux!

@medined: Please note there is a separate repository for debian based images:

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.
