OpenJDK 17 LTS on RHEL8, when is it expected ?

Latest response

Currently the RHEL8 appstreams seem to support only openjdk8 and openjdk11. OpenJDK17 (the next LTS release) was GA'd on 14th Sept 2021. Wondering as to when it might be expected to be released on RHEL8 and made available as AppStream.


This is expected in Q4 2021 with the release of RHEL 8.5

Hi Banibrata,

RHEL 8.5 Beta has been released yesterday - and OpenJDK 17 packages are available from the
rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-beta-rpms repository, which confirms what Lami told you. :)
