Pros of Jib
No docker files to maintain
Build is faster than Docker
Coder friendly with Maven and Gradle plugins
- Fast - Deploy your changes fast. Jib separates your application into multiple layers, splitting dependencies from classes. Now you don’t have to wait for Docker to rebuild your entire Java application - just deploy the layers that changed.
- Reproducible - Rebuilding your container image with the same contents always generates the same image. Never trigger an unnecessary update again.
- Daemonless - Reduce your CLI dependencies. Build your Docker image from within Maven or Gradle and push to any registry of your choice. No more writing Dockerfiles and calling docker build/push.
