Platform support matrix

Our supported Operating System platforms are a subset of those supported by Java.

Production use of Master is only supported on Linux OS, see details below.

JDK support

Master has been tested and verified to work with Oracle JDK 8 JVM 8u171+ and Azul Zulu Enterprise 8, downloadable from Azul Systems.


On previous versions of Corda only the Oracle JDK 8 JVM 8u171+ is supported.

Other distributions of the OpenJDK are not officially supported but should be compatible with Master.


In accordance with the Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap which outlines the end of public updates of Java SE 8 for commercial use, please ensure you have the correct Java support contract in place for your deployment needs.
