Hi Daniel,

Have a look at this link, it should have two artefacts that you can
download, the one referring to jdk/jre is what you need.

Unzip it in opt or wherever you place your JVM/JDK images and you should be
in business, let me know how it goes.

Just to let you know I haven't tested the images (trust OpenJDK ;) ), and
these have been built on a VM and not on bare-metal (in theory it should be
fine right?).
