Azul Zulu Review

It is based on OpenJDK so you obtain practically the same performance compared to Hotspot.


Valuable Features:

I've been using Zulu on Windows and OSX, and although it has many other features, I can mention 3:

- It is based on OpenJDK so you obtain practically the same performance compared to Hotspot;

- Azul offers options to embed it on your apps; and

- It only packs JDK and excludes the web plugin.

Improvements to My Organization:

The project maintains a set of back ports for Java 6 and 7, allowing us to extend the transitions on our applications.

Room for Improvement:

It needs a better update daemon. At this time the process is manual and could be an issue on multiple desktop deployments.

It does not include the Java Web Plugin. Although it will be discontinued in future JDK releases, this could be a problem for actual users.

Use of Solution:

2 years

Deployment Issues:

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

We've had no issues with stability.

Scalability Issues:

We've had no issues with scalability.

Previous Solutions:

We switched because basically Oracle discontinued the Java 7 release and I was accustomed to use OpenJDK in Linux.

Initial Setup:

Not really. It only makes it easy to deploy OpenJDK.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
