Oracle Java 19 available

Effective September 20, 2022, Oracle Java 19 JDK is available.

Oracle delivers a new Java Feature releases every six months via a predictable release schedule.

Java 17 LTS is the current long-term support release for the Java SE platform. JDK 19 and JDK 17 binaries are free to use in production and free to redistribute, at no cost, under the Oracle No-Fee Terms and Conditions (NFTC).

Even though, new versions of Java appear every six months, in March and September, they are only supported until the next one arrives. Hence, JDK 19 will receive updates until March 2023 when it will be superseded by JDK 20.

Java 17 LTS is the first long-term support (LTS) release since Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) 11 three years ago. With JDK 21 Long-Term Support (LTS) release due in September 2023, that means JDK 17 (LTS) users will see their NFTC license revert to a chargeable Oracle Technology Network (OTN) license in September 2024 – one year after the release of the next LTS.

Oracle will also continue providing Oracle OpenJDK releases under the open-source General Public License (GPL), as it has since 2017.
