In case you are looking for a secure and up to date distribution of the Open Java Development Kit, look no further.

Introducing Amazon Corretto, which is a no-cost, multiplatform, production-ready distribution of the Open Java Development Kit (OpenJDK). Corretto comes with long-term support that will include performance enhancements and security fixes.

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.

The Corretto 8 preview corresponding to OpenJDK 8 is available at this time for Amazon Linux 2, Microsoft Windows, and macOS platforms and Docker image. Preview builds can be downloaded by visiting aws.amazon.com/corretto.

Amazon will distribute security updates to Corretto 8 at no cost until at least June 2023, and to Corretto 11 until at least August 2024.

Amazon Corretto is certified to meet the Java SE standard and can be used as a drop-in replacement for many Java SE distributions. Also, Amazon Corretto lets you run the same environment in the cloud, on premises, and on your local machine.

Amazon Corretto sounds wonderful and is available for download and use at no cost.
