We've moved!

Note that the maintenance of OpenJDK and the Jetty Docker images has moved to new GitHub repositories:


Complete code source of the Google App Engine flexible environment Docker image. It has 2 Java libraries, one generic for default servlets, filters and App Engine management, and one which is Jetty 9.x specific for Session management, App Engine APIs hook, and user login.

The dependent Java libraries are build, and used by the appengine-jetty-managed-runtime/src/main/docker/Dockerfile that build the Jetty9 Java8 GAE Compatibility image. To use the image, you need to build it with either a local docker installation or environment variables pointing to a remote docker instance:

      mvn clean install

This will create the following docker images:

The last of these images may be used as the basis for a Java Web Application Archive: put a Dockerfile at the top directory (for example, with a Maven build, create the Dockerfile in ./src/main/webapp directory) and from this Docker image, just add your Web Application content into the /app of the container:

FROM appengine-mvn-opensource:latest
ADD . /app

The Dockerfile may also be used to update the jetty configuration, for example the following will enable the gzip module:

RUN java -jar $JETTY_HOME/start.jar --approve-all-licenses --add-to-startd=gzip

If a custom image changes the Jetty configuration, then the Dockerfile must regenerate the script:

RUN java -jar $JETTY_HOME/start.jar --dry-run | \
    sed 's/^.*java /exec & ${ALPN_BOOT} ${DBG_AGENT} ${PROF_AGENT} \
    -Xms${HEAP_SIZE} -Xmx${HEAP_SIZE} ${JAVA_OPTS} /' >

Then, you can run this App Engine flexible environment container via the Cloud SDK
