During the last two years, a lot of rumors and questions regarding the new Java roadmap and changed license terms have been circulating through the community. Today, it is no longer possible to just download the Java runtime from Oracle and use it in your company – you have to choose between several providers.

One of these is AdoptOpenJDK. But who or what is behind AdoptOpenJDK? And how do their Java distributions and licenses differ from those of other providers? With more than 100 million downloads, we can at least be sure that we are not talking about a niche product.

Karakun expert Hendrik Ebbers is member of the Technical Steering Committee of AdoptOpenJDK. During his upcoming talks at W-JAX and Developer Week Swiss, he is giving an overview about the development and the intentions of AdoptOpenJDK.
