What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

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

What needs 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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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

What is Azul Zulu?
