Hi folks,

I'm considering using a Docker agent for some Jenkins builds I manage to get more control on the environment, and also to have this environment explicit somewhere and reusable so everything should be more portable. What would you recommend as Docker image for testing SWT/Platform-based applications? As far as I remember, this requires gtk, a window manager with X or wayland, java and that's about all. Which image should I get started from? Do some projects already use similar images?

We've recently started working on this in Sirius. Our current version can be seen at

It's based on Debian 9.4 and uses tigervnc with Metacity (no Gnome or other descktop env.). It can certainly be improved, but it seems to do the job for the time being.
