Adoptium is the successor project to AdoptOpenJDK. As part of the move, AdoptOpenJDK will no longer produce new builds. It is therefore recommended that:
We have kept the API usage identical between the AdoptOpenJDK V3 API and api.adoptium.net for ease of migration. We plan to continue to maintain it as backwards compatible with the AdoptOpenJDK API.
The Vendor list in the AdoptOpenJDK API (at time of writing) is as follows:
adoptopenjdk, openjdk, alibaba, ibm, eclipse
In the past we distributed both Hotspot and OpenJ9 under the
When requests were made that did not explicitly state which Vendor was required,
the Vendor would default to
Now that AdoptOpenJDK will no-longer produce binaries, in order to keep delivering
updates to those depending on the AdoptOpenJDK API, the Vendor
adoptopenjdk has been
made synonymous to
eclipse. Requests that explicitly
adoptopenjdk, or do not specify a specific Vendor, will return
assets that are produced by either
adoptopenjdk (legacy) or
synonym only works one way, requests asking specifically for
eclipse will ONLY
return builds produced by Eclipse Adoptium and NOT builds that were created at AdoptOpenJDK.
The addition of the
ibm vendor is to support the new Semeru project who will
be distributing OpenJ9 builds.
With the exception of legacy binaries, most requests for Hotspot JVMs should ultimately return an Eclipse Temurin binary.
eclipse has become the new default (and currently only) Vendor at api.adoptium.net. New releases will
have the vendor
eclipse. api.adoptium.net will only distribute binaries produced
The jvm_impl list in the AdoptOpenJDK API is as follows:
hotspot, openj9, dragonwell
At api.adoptium.net (at time of writing), we are only distributing
this has therefore become the one and only
jvm_impl at api.adoptium.net
Download statistics at Adoptium will only show downloads of Temurin binaries.
The AdoptOpenJDK API will only show download statistics of the legacy AdoptOpenJDK binaries.
