At the current moment in time this consists of the LetsEncrypt CA Certs being included 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 four images, three for Intel/AMD servers and one for the Raspberry PI:

area51/java:jdk-8The full JDK
area51/java:jre-8Just the Java Runtime Environment
area51/java:serverjre-8The server JRE
area51/rpi-java:8The full JDK for the Raspberry PI

In most instances, you'll want to use area51/java:serverjre-8 for server side applications.

Latest version is running Java 8 update 92 build 14 on Intel/AMD and update 91 on the Raspberry PI.

The docker files are in the main github repo: [1] and the PI at [2]


To use simply use them as the base image within your Dockerfile

FROM area51/java:serverjre-8


FROM area51/rpi-java:8

See build versions

You can also see the current build from the command line:
