This reference documentation offers an in-depth description of the behavior and configuration options of the Paketo Java Native Image Buildpack. For explanations of how to use the buildpack for several common use-cases, see the Paketo Java Native Image Buildpack How To documentation.
The [Paketo Java Native Image Buildpack][bp/java-native-image] allows users to create an image containing a GraalVM native image application. The Java Native Image Buildpack supports the same build tools and configuration options as the Java Buildpack. The build must produce an executable jar.
For all native image builds, it is required that:
BP_NATIVE_IMAGEis set at build time.
For Spring Boot applications, it is required that:
