Episode 362 – OpenJDK offering security and cost efficiencies

Azul is the largest provider of commercial support for OpenJDK, supporting more versions of Java than any other vendor, including Oracle.

The University of Sydney has recently selected Azul as the institution’s sole Java provider, switching from Oracle Java. The announcement takes place amid major changes to Oracle Java pricing and a rapid increase in the adoption of OpenJDK-based Java runtimes. By some estimates, usage of Oracle Java has fallen from roughly 75 per cent in 2020 to 34 per cent in 2022.
