An open source alternative to Oracle JDK

An estimated 15 billion devices run Java worldwide. Until January 2019, no one had to pay for access to a current Java Virtual Machine (JVM), but Oracle implemented a significant change to its release cadence and support model.

Oracle JDK is no longer free for production workloads and patches, leaving organizations with a choice to either pay Oracle for continued production support and updates for Oracle JDK, adopt OpenJDK and upgrade every 6 months, or migrate to an alternative OpenJDK implementation.

In this datasheet, you'll learn about the features and benefits of the Red Hat® build of OpenJDK, including its:

  • Open source innovation.
  • Cost savings.
  • Multiplatform support.
  • Long-term support.
  • Frequent releases.
