Using gradle

Chainguard gradle images come with different versions of OpenJDK, ensure you choose the correct image tag for your application needs. In these examples we will use a Chainguard gradle image based on OpenJDK 11.

NOTE: if you are running Docker on Mac M1 you may experience intermittent container high CPU and container / JVM crashes. There have been reports of this behaviour and also affects non Chainguard images. It is expected that using arm based images will address the problem which is in development for Chainguard images. When running the examples below you might experince gradle builds hanging. If you do, you can docker ps and docker kill $PID and retry. This is not an ideal experience and will be improved.

Check the gradle version

 % docker run gradle --version
