The Eclipse Foundation reports that over the past three months, more than 12 million Temurin Java SE binaries have been downloaded.
It’s time to move over, Oracle Java. As of March 14, Eclipse Foundation’s Temurin Java SE binaries have received more than 12 million downloads, more than doubling from last year.
In February, Eclipse delivered more than 12.3 million downloads of its standard Java binaries. In fact, this volume of downloads has been ongoing for the past three to four months, according to Eclipse Executive Director Mike Milinkovich. The Eclipse Adoptium working group has adopted Temurin as the default Java option for the GitHub Actions CI/CD platform and multiple cloud container images, the company noted. Eclipse is confident that its Java distribution is being used by enterprises.
Although Temurin’s momentum predates Oracle Java licensing changes, which charge for Java based on employee numbers rather than actual users, Milinkovich believes Oracle’s shift has accelerated Temurin’s adoption. “The downloads indicate that people are becoming increasingly interested in a free version of Java,” Milinkovich explained.
Milinkovich noted that users are seeking a version of Java that offers quality, scalability, and security, and that is supported by a vendor-neutral community rather than by a single company. The Eclipse Adoptium project, which includes vendors such as Azul, Google, Microsoft, and Red Hat, provides Java distributions based on the OpenJDK source code. Eclipse reports that Adoptium binaries are used by Java developers across a wide range of platforms, including desktops, traditional servers, cloud platforms, mainframes, and embedded systems.
OpenJDK-based Temurin is available for download from adoptium.net in Java SE versions 8, 11, 16, 17, 18, and 19, with Java 20 on the way. Support for security vulnerabilities is provided by Eclipse. Also included in the Eclipse Adoptium Project is the AQavit quality verification test suite for Java implementations. As well as conformance with specifications, Java is tested for quality and security. Adoptium Marketplace offers Java runtimes from Alibaba Cloud, Azul, Eclipse, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, and Red Hat.
