Google Jib: build Java Docker images better

Introducing Jib — build Java Docker images better | Google Cloud Blog

"...Jib, an open-source Java containerizer from Google that lets Java developers build containers using the Java tools they know. Jib is a fast and simple container image builder that handles all the steps of packaging your application into a container image. It does not require you to write a Dockerfile or have docker installed, and it is directly integrated into Maven and Gradle—just add the plugin to your build and you'll have your Java application containerized in no time."
