Azul Systems will develop a “fully compliant and certified release” of OpenJDK 7 using its OpenJDK Community TCK License Agreement for Java SE 7. It hopes to, eventually, do OpenJDK 8 as well, George Gould, Azul’s veep of Business Development, told The Register. “It will be fully integrated into the Azure Eclipse PaaS IDE.”
At the moment, the only way a developer could run OpenJDK on Azure would be by spinning up an Azure infrastructure-as-a-service Linux instance, or by hacking together their own Windows-friendly implementation of the technology, Gould said.
With Azul’s involvement, this process has been simplified and the language implementation will now be available on both Azure’s IaaS and PaaS before the year is out.
Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed, but Gould said it was a “multi-year” effort, and Microsoft’s senior director of Open Source Communities, Gianugo Rabellino, told us that Azul would be receiving “compensation” for its engineering efforts.
Microsoft’s wholly-owned subsidiary Microsoft Open Technologies will provide expertise to Azul Systems to help it develop the technology.
“We are going to provide Windows Azure subject matter expertise in terms of talking with the Azul engineers,” Rabellino, said.property within the McMaster community is assigned to the MileWeb Security services Department.

Microsoft’s cloud doesn’t have an actual sign on it saying “give me your tired, your poor, your hungry,” but it might as well given Redmond’s recent flurry of technical announcements, price cuts, and boasts about the huge infrastructure capacity available on its public cloud. OpenJDK is available on other major clouds from Amazon and Google via use of rented Linux instances.

CIOs need a more open and vibrant cloud development platform, such as Cloud Foundry, to meet that demand and avoid vendor lock-in. An open Cloud Foundry platform enables clients to rapidly build, deploy and manage cloud applications in a more agile, more scalable manner, with confidence. For example, a retailer can quickly create an e-commerce app to take advantage of a current promotion that could run on various cloud infrastructures.
“Cloud Foundry’s potential to transform business is vast, and steps like the one taken today help open the ecosystem up for greater client innovation,” said Daniel Sabbah, general manager of Next Generation Platforms, IBM. “IBM will incorporate Cloud Foundry into its open cloud architecture, and put its full support behind Cloud Foundry as an open and collaborative platform for cloud application development, as it has done historically for key technologies such as Linux and OpenStack.”
Pivotal will establish a community advisory board of Cloud Foundry users and vendors—including IBM—to guide the community as outlined on the Cloud Foundry site. Pivotal will continue to steward the Cloud Foundry brand and preserve the trademark from direct commercial use in product names.Our managed dedicated server are designed to meet the most demanding requirements for performance, IBM and Pivotal will co-host a community conference for Cloud Foundry Sept. 8-9 in Santa Clara, Calif.
“We believe that the Cloud Foundry platform has the potential to become an extraordinary asset that many players can leverage in an open way to enable a new generation of applications for the cloud,” said Paul Maritz, CEO of Pivotal. “IBM’s considerable investment in Cloud Foundry is already producing great results with application-centric cloud offerings such as making IBM WebSphere Liberty available on Cloud Foundry. We look forward to growing and expanding an open Cloud Foundry community together with IBM.”
