Eclipse Temurin 21 and 22 Available on RISC-V

In the ever-expanding tech landscape, compatibility and accessibility are key. Today, we’re excited to announce a significant advancement in the Java ecosystem: the availability of Eclipse Temurin 21 and Eclipse Temurin 22 on RISC-V. This achievement stems from a collaboration between Eclipse Adoptium and RISE, aimed at extending Java’s reach to new platforms and audiences.

Collaboration with RISE

Rivos’s membership in both the Adoptium Working Group and RISE Project enabled this implementation. Our collaboration with the RISE Project, an initiative to promote and advance commercial software readiness in the RISC-V ecosystem, has been pivotal in bringing Java to RISC-V. By combining our expertise and resources, we’ve tackled technical challenges and paved the way for Java to flourish on this emerging platform.

Next Steps: Java 17 and 11

As we celebrate Eclipse Temurin’s availability on RISC-V, our focus shifts to the future. Eclipse Temurin 17 and 11 availability on RISC-V are in the works, and we’re committed to ensuring smooth compatibility and performance optimization for RISC-V systems. These upcoming releases will further solidify Java’s presence on this architecture, offering developers new avenues for innovation and growth.

How to Get Started
