Is java-docker DooD and DinD

I have considered using docker-java to launch a container from inside a java springboot container. But then I found Docker inside of Docker (DinD) and Docker outside of Docker (DooD) which make it clear to not do this in production.

I can’t figure out if docker-java is DooD/DinD.

If anyone knows for sure it we be very helpful to me.


What makes you think that a java client library for the docker-api would provide docker engine functionality?
