The Remote console works with the OpenJDK JRE and the
browser plugin. Tested on OpenJDK6 build 18 and
1.x and 2.x can compile OpenJDK using GNU Classpath-based solutions such as GCJ and optionally bootstraps itself using the HotSpot Java Virtual Machine and the javac Java compiler it just built. For now, building
3.x requires using
2.x or 3.x, or an OpenJDK 7 or 8 build from another source.
Since then, a number of patches from
have made their way into OpenJDK.
has become popular among package maintainers for the following Linux distributions.

On November 5, 2007, Red Hat signed both the Sun Contributor Agreement and the OpenJDK Community TCK License. The press release suggested that this would benefit the
project. Simon Phipps suggested the possibility of
being hosted on openjdk.java.net, and Mark Reinhold noted that signing the copyright assignment could allow Red Hat to contribute parts of
to Sun for inclusion in the mainstream JDK.
From June 2007,
was able to build itself and pass a significant portion of Mauve, the GNU Classpath test suite. In May 2008, support was added to
for running the Sun jtreg regression tests. Availability on several Windows editions still remains unstable and unofficial.
Following the announcement, the
project was started and was formally announced on June 7, 2007, with a build repository provided by the GNU Classpath team. The team could not call their software product ""OpenJDK"" because this is a trademark which was owned by Sun Microsystems. They instead decided to use the temporary name ""
The OpenJDK compatible version of JamVM is supported by
packages of JamVM are included in both Debian and Ubuntu. This enables JamVM to be installed as an alternative Java Virtual Machine to hotspot when using OpenJDK. When using Ubuntu on ARM, JamVM was the default VM. Now, HotSpot Zero is used on armhf.
In June 2008, Red Hat announced that the packaged binaries for OpenJDK on Fedora 9, built using
6, had passed the Technology Compatibility Kit tests and could claim to be a fully compatible Java 6 implementation. In July 2009, an
6 binary build for Ubuntu 9.04 passed all of the compatibility tests in the Java SE 6 TCK.
provides a free-software Java Web browser plugin. It was the first to work in 64-bit browsers under 64-bit Linux, a feature Sun's proprietary JRE later addressed. This makes it suitable to enable support for Java applets in 64-bit Mozilla Firefox, among others.
also provides a free Java Network Launching Protocol implementation. Sun has promised to release their plugin and Web Start implementation as part of OpenJDK, but so far have not done so, despite pressure from the community. Development on the
plugin continues, with the latest version of the next-generation plugin supporting Google's Chromium in addition to Firefox.
Historically, the initial goal of the
project was to make the OpenJDK software, which Sun Microsystems released as free software in 2007, usable without requiring any proprietary software, and hence make it possible to add OpenJDK to Fedora and other Linux distributions that insist on free software. This goal was met, and a version of
based on OpenJDK was packaged with Fedora 8 in November 2007. April 2008 saw the first release of a new variant, IcedTea6, which is based on Sun's build drops of OpenJDK6, a fork of the OpenJDK with the goal of being compatible with the existing JDK6. This was released in Ubuntu and Fedora in May 2008. The
package in these distributions has been renamed to OpenJDK using the OpenJDK trademark notice. In June 2008, the Fedora build passed Sun's rigorous TCK testing on x86 and x86-64.
2, the first version based on OpenJDK 7, was released in October 2011.
3, the first version based on OpenJDK 8, was released in April 2016. Support for
1 was dropped in January 2017.
On November 5, 2007, Red Hat signed both the Sun Contributor Agreement and the OpenJDK Community TCK License. One of the first benefits of this agreement is tighter alignment with the
project, which brings together Fedora, the Linux distribution, and JBoss, the application server, technologies in a Linux environment.
provided free software alternatives for the few remaining proprietary sections in the OpenJDK project.
also provides a more familiar build system by providing a wrapper around the OpenJDK makefiles using the GNU Autotools. This removes the need to remember numerous environment variables for configuring the build. (The current
builds set roughly forty such variables for the underlying OpenJDK build.) It has also provided a place for early work on features which will eventually appear in the main OpenJDK builds such as Gervill and for work on ports to other platforms.
Since 2011, development takes place in the separate
-Web project. As of April 2013, Oracle has kept the codebase of the Java plugin fully proprietary, in contrast to the remainder of OpenJDK.

As of March 2008, the Fedora 9 distribution has been released with OpenJDK 6 instead of the
implementation of OpenJDK 7. Some of the stated reasons for this change are:
