How difficult are most OpenJDK migrations? 

For many smaller organizations with less complex infrastructures, an OpenJDK migration can be very straightforward. “In fact, migrating to certified builds of OpenJDK can be very straightforward and simple for the vast majority of enterprises,” I wrote in OpenJDK Migration for Dummies. “If you’re migrating server applications, you’re not likely to encounter any challenges.” 

But as anyone with experience in big software projects knows, things rarely go as simply as teams hope they will. It’s good to know what to expect before starting a migration. 

  • How difficult is a migration really? 
  • What can teams do ahead of time to mitigate those challenges? 
  • What should a migration team know to migrate successfully from Oracle Java to an OpenJDK distribution? 

Every migration is unique, so it’s critical to understand your goals. After you’ve identified your goals, the methodology we suggest for migrating from the Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) can be broken down into three stages: 

  1. Discovery. Identify which versions of Java are being used by which applications and on which machines within your organization, including cloud instances.
  2. inventory to create a migration plan. Execution. For each machine that requires a Java runtime, install the same version (or versions) of the OpenJDK distribution you choose. 
  3. Validation. Test your applications to verify that everything works as expected.
