A quick update on the status of our support for Azul JDK:
Our planned roll out of ColdFusion support of the Azul Zulu OpenJDK (including new CF installers) has been put on hold. We will continue for now with our regular update cycles, supporting the Oracle JVM (JDK or JRE).
We expect to provide further updates on Java support changes by December 2021.
Below was the original text of this post, now stricken out, but left to provide context.
To be clear: the pre-release remains open for now, with the planned updates for CF2021 (update 2) and CF2018 (update 12) that were also part of the prerelease, as well as the AWS Lambda support, and more.
Effective July 21st 2021, ColdFusion customers can develop and operate their CF applications with distributions of the Azul Zulu builds of OpenJDK, standards compliant with Java SE. Support for the Azul Zulu JDKs will be provided by Adobe to our CF customers.
On July 21st, ColdFusion installers for ColdFusion (2018 release) and ColdFusion (2021 release) with the Azul JDKs will be available for download from https://www.adobe.com/support/coldfusion/downloads.html. In the interim, we’ve set up a pre-release, where ColdFusion customers can try out the Azul based installers (https://adobe.ly/3zipSx2) . We encourage you to review the installation steps, try the build and share any feedback. The usage rights for the Oracle Java technology as distributed by Adobe will expire by in December 2022. We encourage our customers to plan and implement Azul Zulu JDKs sooner- to better leverage future ColdFusion updates, patches, and bug fixes. For more information about the usage of the Oracle Java technology please refer to the associated FAQ on our pre-release site (https://adobe.ly/3zipSx2)
