Chapter 1. Support policy

Red Hat will support select major versions of OpenJDK in its products. For consistency, these versions will be the same ones that Oracle designates 'LTS' for the Oracle JDK.

A major version of OpenJDK will be supported for a minimum of six years from the time it is first introduced.

OpenJDK 8 is supported on Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux until May 2026.

Note

RHEL 6 has reached the end of life in November 2020. Due to this, OpenJDK is not supporting RHEL 6 as a supporting configuration.
