You want to create Docker containers with Java 9. How do you create a Docker image to make containers with Java 9 installed in them?
These directions were updated on 12/26/18.
This assumes that you have Docker installed. If you need assistance with this, see these postings depending on your operating system:
1. Create a filed called Dockerfile with the following content:
MAINTAINER NAME EMAIL
RUN apt-get -y update && apt-get -y upgrade && apt-get install -y build-essential openjdk-11-jre-headless
2. Run this command:
docker build -t "java:java" .
# You should see an image ID. If you need to find out later, use "docker images" to find it.
# You are now done.
3. This step is optional if you want to create a container and enter it. Run these commands:
docker create -it <ImageID> bash
# You should see a container ID. If you need to find out later, use "docker ps -a"
docker start <containerID>
docker exec -it <containerID> bash
If the above directions do not work with RHEL, please post a comment. You do not need to use your real name.
