Published date: May 25, 2021
The Microsoft Build of OpenJDK is a Long-Term Support (LTS) distribution of OpenJDK, the free and open-source reference implementation of the Java SE Platform. The Microsoft Build of OpenJDK is open-source and free for anyone to deploy anywhere and is fully supported by Microsoft for customers with qualifying Azure support plans. It includes binaries for Java 11 based on OpenJDK 11.0.11, on x64 server and desktop environments on macOS, Linux, and Windows.
Microsoft will look for opportunities to recommend optimizations to customers running Java-based workloads from its own experience using the Microsoft Build of OpenJDK at scale, across services like LinkedIn, Minecraft, Yammer, and other internal needs.
