We are pleased to announce the availability of OpenJDK 8 for Windows.

OpenJDK is a fully open-source implementation of the Java SE specification. It is comparable in performance to Oracle and IBM JDKs.

Red Hat distributes and fully supports OpenJDK in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7, for use with all Java applications. Red Hat has also taken on the role of supporting OpenJDK beyond the public EOL, and is the global maintainer for
OpenJDK 6 and 7.

Starting with OpenJDK 8, we are now making available Windows builds intended for development of Middleware applications with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. The Windows OpenJDK 8 builds provided by Red Hat are fully compatible with their counterpart RHEL releases, which means that you can be assured that your application behavior will not change when you develop and test on Windows with our OpenJDK build, then deploy the application on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
