Adopt Open JDK support by Pega

We are planning to switch to Adopt Open JDK for our application. Currenty we use Pega 7.1.9, (Java 8u131-b11, and Tomcat 8.0.53) but potentially we might upgrade to 8.x.

Now we´d like to know if there is any support given from Pega regarding Adopt OpenJDK. We are already aware of the "Platform Support Guide" for 8.x or 7.x but these documents unfortunately don´t give any information on Adopt OpenJDK. Also I found the following posts which also don´t give a clear answer:

Can you please clarify if and for which version Pega can guarantee Adopt OpenJDK support?

Many thanks in advance.

I will forward the question to the relevant team to see if the support of Adopt OpenJDK on the product roadmap or not. Stay tuned.

Hi, here is the reply from our SMEs:

Pega does not explicitly test with AdoptOpenJDK or Zulu OpenJDK or any of the other variants, but the Platform engineers feel that it "should" work. Please move forward and do your testing (especially if you want to run this for mission critical applications); if you run into issues, we will work with you.

Hi, Has anyone tried any of the OpenJDK variants (AdoptOpenJDK/RHEL/Zulu/etc)?  Any insight is really appreciated. Xx

Response to Raj Marni1

I have run some of the internal systems using AdoptOpenJDK on Pega 8.3 (JDK 11). Have not seen any issues so far but we have NOT run any exhaustive testing either.
