Azul Webinar: What JDK to Use in the Future

Presenter: Azul Deputy CTO Simon Ritter
August 2018

With public updates to JDK 8 ending in January 2019 now is a good time to consider what version of the JDK you will use after that date.

On August 22, Azul Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter presented a webinar reviewing the options available:

  • Should you stay on JDK 8 or move to a new version of the JDK, like 9, 10, or 11?
  • Should you use a Feature Release or Long Term Support Release; and what do these terms actually mean?
  • What are the options for different binary distributions?

The JCP Executive Committee recently ran a poll of what users’ plans were, and Simon looked at the results of this poll to help you decide on the best strategy.
