Michael Vorburger commented on FINERACT-830:

Resolving, as the main goal here is now reached. [~xurror] and [~ptuomola] 
could I encourage you to open new issues more specific to Kubernetes (your 
discussion above), if any?

> Use distroless base image instead of bitnami/tomcat in container

> https://github.com/GoogleContainerTools/distroless is a great alternative.

> Your mission, should you choose to accept it and work on this issue, would be 
> to raise a PR modifying our Dockerfile, but then still have the related test 
> at the end of .travis.yml pass - everything (container, Docker Compose, 
> Kubernetes) should, obviously, still "work as is", even if you go for 
> changing the base image. Makes sense and sounds fair?
> PS: What we really should do at some point is move away from 1990s style 
> WAR-in-Tomcat, and make java -jar fineract.war work instead (and then use 
> that in the container)... people working on this could also contribute, 
> before or after, to FINERACT-730.  (On a related front, there's also 
> FINERACT-764, but both are probably independent enough from each other to be 
> tackled separately.)
