Why Replace the Oracle JDK with OpenJDK?

May 5, 2021, 11am PDT | 2pm EDT

About the Webinar:

The way Oracle licenses its Java Development Kit (JDK) has changed for all versions Oracle distributes since April 2019. The effect of this is that users are now looking for alternative distributions of Java built from the open-source OpenJDK. In this webinar, we'll explore the various factors that should be considered when choosing an OpenJDK distribution. 

You'll Learn

-What are the critical properties of an OpenJDK distribution?
-The importance of TCK testing for compatibility.
-Why are security updates important? 
-How to evaluate the best OpenJDK option for your environment.

Azul Zulu was a drop-in replacement and migration has taken less than three months. Had we known how seamlessly and smooth the process would be, we would have switched from Oracle Java to Azul much earlier on.
