Zulu Mission Control is fully-tested build of JDK Mission Control, which was open sourced by Oracle and is managed as a project under the OpenJDK umbrella. Azul has back-ported the JDK Mission Control code and added support for production applications running on both Java SE versions 8 and 11.

Community builds of Zulu Mission Control are free to download and use without restrictions and will work with any Java 8 or Java 11 JVM that has implemented Flight Recorder technology as part of the JVM.

Today you can use Zulu Mission Control on Zulu Enterprise and Zulu builds of OpenJDK from Azul Systems, other compatible OpenJDK runtimes, and properly-licensed Oracle Java SE JVMs. 

Please note that a single version of Zulu Mission Control will support Java runtimes from both JDK 8 and JDK 11.

Think you may want support for Zulu Mission Control? Flight Recorder and Mission Control are already included with every Zulu Enterprise subscription.
