What is Amazon Corretto

Corretto is a reliable build of OpenJDK with the assurance of long-term support provided at no cost to you.

In simple sentence Amazon Corretto is nothing but #OpenJDK. Then how is Corretto different from OpenJDK. Corretto is a distribution of Open JDK with patches included by Amazon that are not yet integrated in the corresponding OpenJDK update projects. They focus on patches that improve performance or stability in OpenJDK, chosen based on Amazon's observations running large services.

Corretto is a build of the Open #Java Development Kit (OpenJDK) with long-term support from Amazon. #Corretto is certified using the Java Technical Compatibility Kit (TCK) to ensure it meets the Java SE standard and is available on Linux, Windows, and macOS. It includes patches from Amazon that have proven useful in running our own services.
