I think it's a good idea to have it, just not to require it.

We do this in another project, it's nice in that you get consistent
Maven and JDK version and that the Docker image can be auto-built on
changes to the code, and can depend on native stuff (e.g. Python
scripts called from Java)

It's not so convenient in that the result of the compilation is trapped
inside the Docker image - but that's not an issue if the goal is to make
a web-server or command line container.

See for instance:

(Apache license, feel free to borrow)

There we actually use that again from Docker Compose because it needs a
database etc - but that is presumably not needed by the petstore app.
