Alpine Musl Containers: Now Upstream

Container images based on Alpine Linux have been around for some time. You can calculate the real cost savings from using small containers, which we will do. And now it's time to have them as an official flavor of Java Runtime with new JEP 386: Alpine Linux Port. The new port has its own subtleties, which we will consider in the context of microservices development.

BellSoft is the company behind JEP 386 and we would like to share our work in the OpenJDK community. We have long been providing Liberica JDK Docker images on top of Alpine Linux. It really helps our users and therefore remains the most popular choice.
