Java with Docker: How to Make it Work

Ever tried developing Java applications in containers?

Of course not. You're a sensible person.

From a small footprint to a super-fast spin-up time, the reality of containers is a far cry from the reality of an OpenJDK binary execution.

So how do we bring these two disparate visions closer together?

Simple! We jlink the required JDK modules to generate a smaller footprint, then leverage alternate JVMs for performant startup!

I promise, the reality is simpler than that sentence. :)

Drop by and see what I mean.
