Commercial

OpenJDK implementations are available from popular vendors including Red Hat, Ubuntu, SUSE, Azul, and others. Arm is a big contributor to OpenJDK, which ensures excellent performance on AArch64 platforms.

Library ecosystem

The Java library ecosystem is very mature. With a continued investment from Arm and the community, developers can include one or more of the tens-of-thousands of open-source libraries and be confident that they will work on AArch64. Arm continues to work with the community to ensure libraries work best on AArch64.
