AOT Compiler to Shrink Docker Container

Is using an AOT compiler such as GCj or Excelsior Jet appropriate if we’re aiming to shrink the size of a Docker container?

The largest part of the container is the JRE, and we’re looking for ways to trim this down. Our microservices are kb in size, it seems odd that we’re having to deploy 110MB containers.

    From version 11.3 onwards, Excelsior JET supports Compact Profiles, which may help.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
