NOTICE: Zulu for Azure distribution has been End of Life (EOL)
On January 1st 2022, Azul’s Zulu for Azure OpenJDK-based distribution entered End of Life (EOL). As such, all support services and binary updates have ended. While Java applications can continue to use these open-source binaries in perpetuity (licensed under GPLv2 with Classpath Exception), quarterly bug fixes and security updates ended on December 31, 2021.
As such, Zulu for Azure users should move to Azul Zulu Builds of OpenJDK distributions (which has optional commercial support from Azul) as soon as practical in order to receive “secure and updated” binaries on a continuous basis.
Detail information on how users can seamlessly transition from Azul Zulu for Azure to Azul’s free and open-source Zulu Builds of OpenJDK for their Java deployments and container images is available HERE
