Minimal Docker image with Java

Warning - This image is currently in hiatus, as the base Busybox image cannot run its package manager any more, so I cannot publish any updates. So please use jeanblanchard/java instead, which is based on Alpine Linux, and is almost as small.

Basic Docker image to run Java applications.
This is based off Busybox to keep the size minimal (about 25% of an ubuntu-based image).

Please note that I had to recreate this repository to allow publishing from a continuous integration build. This means that your previous stars, and the download count, have been reset.
