Oracle JDK follows the same cadence as OpenJDK, with a 6-month rapid-release cycle (since the release of Java 10) and a new LTS release every 2 years (since OpenJDK 17, previously every 3 years).

Oracle JDK follows the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy, which defines 3 support levels:

  • Premier Support: includes minor improvements, bug and security fixes for a minimum of 5 years from the general availability.
  • Extended Support (LTS releases only): includes minor improvements, bug and security fixes for an additional 3 years from the end of Premier Support.
  • Sustaining Support (LTS releases only): includes assistance from Oracle for an indefinite period, but with no bug nor security fixes.

Oracle JDK is free of charge for development and testing, but may not be for production depending on the release. In 2021, Oracle announced that Oracle JDK 17 and later will be free for production, but you should be cautious as the situation is not that simple. For example support for LTS releases is limited to a year after the next LTS release.

Oracle JDK is one of the many builds of OpenJDK. For recommendations on which JDK build to use, check out whichjdk.com.

This page also lists deprecated releases 1.0 to 6 of the JDK for information purposes. Those versions were released under the Sun Microsystems umbrella, before its acquisition by Oracle in 2010. They were not based on OpenJDK and were following a different support policy.

More information is available on the Oracle JDK website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
java -version

You can submit an improvement to this page on GitHub :octocat: . This page has a corresponding Talk Page.
