I need to install Java 6 (preferably OpenJDK vs Oracle) in Alpine docker (latest) and I can't find an Alpine repository containing it. Any ideas?

    Why do you explicitly need Java 6? Java 6 reached its end-of-life almost 7 years ago. You're not likely to find what you're looking for. – Andy Dalton Nov 25 '19 at 20:55
  • For backwards compatibility perhaps? We still use windows XP to talk to very old PLCs. Assume it is a legit question. – captcha Nov 25 '19 at 20:57

    @AndyDalton - for a legacy app that is not upgradeable to Java 7+ for various reasons, starting with no longer supported database drivers and like 100 other reasons. That app does not run on Java 8, even in legacy mode. – Andrey Nov 25 '19 at 21:57

    Get it here (from Oracle): oracle.com/java/technologies/… – ajgringo619 Nov 26 '19 at 0:22
