  • By Developer.com Staff

Amazon has unveiled Corretto, its open source, no-cost, production-ready distribution of the Open Java Development Kit (OpenJDK). The company promises that the current version, Corretto 8, will be supported at no cost until at least June 2023. Corretto 11, which is under development, will be around until at least August 2024.

"Java is one of the most popular languages in use by AWS customers, and we are committed to supporting Java and keeping it free," blogged Arun Gupta, principal open-source technologist at Amazon.

He added, "Amazon runs Corretto on thousands of production services. Patches and improvements in Corretto enable Amazon to address high-scale, real-world service concerns, meeting heavy performance and scalability demands. We’re making these available to customers with no-cost, long-term support, with quarterly updates including bug fixes and security patches. AWS will also provide urgent fixes to customers outside of the quarterly schedule."
