Look out, Oracle Java. The Eclipse Foundation is opening an online marketplace that will give developers access to standard Java binaries from multiple sources.
Eclipse in collaboration with its Adoptium Working Group is establishing the Adoptium Marketplace, which will provide Java SE Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) certified and Eclipse AQAvit (Adoptium Quality Assurance) Java binaries, all based on OpenJDK. While the TCK tests for Java compatibility, AQAvit adds testing for performance and scalability.
Organizations planning to participate in the Adoptium Marketplace include Eclipse, with its Temurin runtime; Microsoft, with the Microsoft Build of OpenJDK; IBM, with its Semeru Runtime Certified Edition; Huawei, with Bi Sheng; Alibaba Cloud, with Dragonwell; Red Hat; with its build of OpenJDK; and Azul, with Zulu Builds of OpenJDK. Builds from Alibaba Cloud and Microsoft are not expected to be available until July.
