The JDK code can run on a number of platforms, using vastly different compilers and build tools. We at BellSoft, as a leading OpenJDK contributor, stay in close touch with the open source community and intend to support any hardware or OS that is maintained within it.
The table below summarizes the build platforms and operating systems expected to be supported by one or multiple versions of BellSoft’s flagship product, Liberica JDK. It is a 100% open source binary distribution verified by TCK for the Java SE specification. Our engineering team ensures its smooth operation for every configuration. The packages are guaranteed to succeed under normal conditions. If you face any problems compiling Liberica JDK on the listed platforms, please report a failure to BellSoft.
Derived from Open JDK, Liberica JDK is built against all currently available JDK levels, including the most widespread JDK 8, and JDK 11 up to the latest JDK 17. It is thoroughly tested and supported 24/7.
Liberica’s builds are receiving the most extensive platform support and are compatible with the majority of known operating systems, which means:
- no need for installation workarounds,
- it will always have the same Java runtime when you deploy or develop,
- a one-size-fits-all JDK solution to cut down on costs.
The developers’ favorite build tools, such as Gradle, Maven, sbt, and Apache Ant, work perfectly with our packages. Besides, Liberica JDK powers all kinds of large deployments, including banking systems, social networks, trading, and retail. Their deployment architectures use public or private clouds and typically provide very high uptime and flexible scalability.
The Liberica JDK release dates are aligned with those of Oracle Java SE and other major vendor distributions. We are committed to providing a secure and bug-free JDK experience to our customers with each new version. No matter which build a client uses, their application should never run into major problems on our watch; but if it does, our support team will resolve the issue at a moment’s notice. Producing quarterly releases, BellSoft delivers fixes, enhancements, and security updates in a timely and consistent matter. Dates of future Liberica releases and expectations regarding their support depend on the OpenJDK project, and on how it evolves and develops through communal efforts.
