“Works with OpenJDK” Campaign

September 03, 2021

OpenJDK powers millions of applications and services around the globe. The OpenJDK project is where Java is developed and maintained, and provides the reference implementation for Java SE specifications. A multitude of reputable, compatible, and interchangeable OpenJDK distributions are available to power Java applications that work with OpenJDK.

Use the "Works with OpenJDK" badge to indicate that your project, library, application, or service is known to work with OpenJDK. Or uses OpenJDK. Or is tested on OpenJDK. Or is generally happy with or likes OpenJDK.

Let's celebrate OpenJDK!

To join in with this campaign to celebrate OpenJDK, badges are found at Foojay's GitHub: github.com/foojayio/badges

And here, for example, is an img tag to be added to the top of the README.md of GitHub projects—or any other place, such as Java technology websites and Java User Group meetup announcements—that work with OpenJDK:

<a href="https://foojay.io/today/works-with-openjdk">
   <img align="right" 
        src="https://github.com/foojayio/badges/raw/main/works_with_openjdk/Works-with-OpenJDK.png"   
        width="100">
</a>

Join in too and let the world know that you work with OpenJDK!

    And here’s the schedule, note that it will change as more meetups are confirmed, and if your JUG is missing, i.e., you’d like to still be included in the tour, no worries, let’s see what can be done!

  • Virtual Foojay OpenJDK 17+ JUG Tour

    To celebrate OpenJDK 17 and Foojay.io as a community platform for its users, we’re kicking off the Virtual Foojay OpenJDK 17+ JUG Tour. Ari Waller, JFrog’s Event Manager, well known to many JUGs, will continue to wear a second hat—that of Foojay Event Manager.

    During September and October, contributors to Foojay will be making a whistle stop tour through as many JUGs as possible, via their virtual meetups! (And if you’re not holding virtual events or don’t have the facilities for this, we can support by making these available as needed.)

  • Foojay Status Report: January – June 2021

    The 1/2 year mark of 2021 is a good moment to reflect on the current status of Foojay.io, a place for friends of OpenJDK, and to look at where we are and where to go next!

    The Foojay.io site is under heavy development right now, a new homepage will be released over the next weeks. After that, there are several directions we can go in together—how about a forum, job board, a newsletter, a code exchange, and Foojay Awards?

I think in its current state, this campaign is confusing to the Java community. My newsletter says why: https://bpfnl.substack.com/p/how-to-build-java-applications-today-f21

Geertjan Wielenga

Hi Karsten, just join in. Let’s spread the word that millions of applications are using the OpenJDK, it’s not hard: the OpenJDK is frequently hidden, let’s instead bring it to the surface and show all the places and people working with it. You’re simply saying that you or your project work with OpenJDK when you attach that badge to yourself or your project.
