Dockerfile for the New Java 9 REPL

October 5, 2017 Jonahlyn Gilstrap

I wanted to play with the new Java 9 REPL jshell without upgrading to Java 9 so I created a simple Docker image to help me do just that.

To use it, all you need to do is install Docker, pull and run the image with these commands:

docker pull jonahlyn/java9-repl
docker run -ti jonahlyn/java9-repl

There are links to a few good tutorials on how to use it in the readme file.
