Azul’s commercial product releases are designated with one of two different support lifecycles: Long Term Support (LTS) and Medium Term Support (MTS).
- Releases designated as LTS are those same LTS releases as designated by Oracle and the OpenJDK community. For LTS releases, Azul provides at least 8 years of access to bug fixes, security updates, and other (“Production Support”) fixes as needed plus 2 years of additional support intended to advise and assist users to migrate to a newer JDK version (“Extended Support”).
- For those releases designed as MTS, Azul provides Production Support for at least 1.5 years after the general availability of the next LTS release, plus an additional 1 year of Extended Support.
- For other Java feature releases, Azul will make feature preview or community builds available on its download page for 6 months.
