Oracle Continues Long-Term Support for Amazon Linux
Posted on November 7, 2018
On October 30, Oracle announced that both OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11 will continue their long-term support for Amazon Linux until June 30, 2023.
Since the announcement that Oracle will no longer provide long-term support for the OpenJDK beginning January 2019, this has sparked a lot of interest in the Java community over support for Amazon Web Services. Oracle and Amazon wanted to reassure devs that OpenJDK 8 and OpenJDK 11 LTS will continue for Amazon Linux until mid-2023.
