We encourage you to do the same, and invite you to explore open source Java alternatives like Zulu and Zulu Enterprise.
Azul’s Zulu products are 100% open source, certified builds of OpenJDK that are based on the same source code that Oracle uses for its proprietary Java SE offering. Zulu is compliant with Java SE specifications, and has identical performance to the Oracle offering, making it an easy “drop-in” replacement for Oracle HotSpot.
Zulu Enterprise brings the following advantages for Java SE users:
- Zulu is free to download and free to use, without field-of-use or any other restrictions
- Azul supports Java SE 8, 7, and 6 (and Java 9 in September 2017)
- Azul offers high-quality 24 x 7 x 365 support and timely access to security updates and other critical bug fixes for Zulu Enterprise customers
Java SE is critical technology for the enterprise. By working with Azul you can gain all the advantages of fully-supported builds of OpenJDK — the same Java performance and identical functionality as Oracle HotSpot, but delivered as 100% open source and with flexible Support plans that won’t break the bank.
