Red Hat Introduces Commercial Support for OpenJDK on Windows
December 18, 2018

Red Hat announced the availability of long-term commercial support for OpenJDK on Microsoft Windows.

By adding to its existing support for OpenJDK on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat is further enabling organizations to standardize the development and deployment of Java applications throughout the enterprise with a flexible, powerful and open alternative to proprietary Java platforms.

As one of the most popular programming languages in use today, Java is used by developers across industries to create modern applications that are at the heart of digital infrastructure. Today, these applications are extending from the desktop and datacenter to the cloud, and span multiple operating systems and platforms. Red Hat OpenShift brings commercial support for OpenJDK to all major cloud providers.

A Red Hat subscription provides the latest enterprise-ready software, trusted knowledge, enhanced product security, and technical support from engineers making software the open source way. Red Hat’s support organization and deep roots in the Java ecosystem position Red Hat as a valuable partner for organizations building and deploying business-critical Java applications wherever they choose to deploy them. Red Hat has been an active member of the OpenJDK community since 2007 and has contributed to and led various aspects of the project, such as the 64-bit ARMv8 port, AArch64 for OpenJDK, and development of the Shenandoah garbage collector. Red Hat has also served in stewardship roles for both OpenJDK 6 and OpenJDK 7.

In addition to distributing and providing life cycle support for OpenJDK, the Red Hat Middleware portfolio of open source Java products also support OpenJDK on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Microsoft Windows. These products are used by customers to create, integrate and automate modern business applications and processes, giving users full-stack support from the operating system through to application services from a single vendor.
