Microsoft Build of OpenJDK

Microsoft is now offering a free and maintained OpenJDK package!

The Microsoft Build of OpenJDK is a no-cost distribution of OpenJDK that's open source and available for free for anyone to deploy anywhere.

It includes Long-Term Support (LTS) binaries for Java 11 and Java 17 on x64 server and desktop environments on macOS, Linux, and Windows, AArch64/ARM64 on Linux and Windows, and binaries for macOS on Apple Silicon (AArch64/M1). Additionally Java 16 is also provided (non-LTS).

The Microsoft Build of OpenJDK binaries are based on OpenJDK source code, following the same build scripts used by the Eclipse Adoptium project and tested against the Eclipse Adoptium Quality Assurance suite (including OpenJDK project tests).
