Many Java software developer are talking about containers like Docker, but be aware that it takes discipline to use container technology. It may not be as secure nor as optimal as you thought it would be. Although it is relatively easy to create a new immutable container image to run everywhere, you may have fallen into many of the caveats. Is it running as the root user? Why are the images taking so much space? Why did your containers run out of space in the first place? Most importantly, your container images may not be as immutable nor repeatable as you thought, and your Java process might be overutilizing assigned resources. Learn how to best address these issues when building your Java container images.
