Oracle in its Spring 2024 roadmap for Java SE (Standard Edition) reconfirmed it will extend support for Java 11 through January 2032, and will support Java 8 and Java 11 on the Solaris operating system until at least December 2030 and January 2032 respectively.

The Java SE Spring 2024 roadmap update, published May 13, also notes the company’s continued commercial support of JavaFX and its planned sunsetting of the Advanced Management Console (AMC) after October 2024. AMC users should be migrating to Java Management Service (JMS), Oracle said.

Solaris is the longtime Unix OS Oracle acquired with Sun Microsystems in January 2010. Oracle said it remains committed to providing support for Java on Solaris. This currently means support for Java SE 8 until at least December 2030 and Java SE 11 until at least January 2032. These terms represent an extension of Java support by an additional six years past dates announced in 2019, Donald Smith, Oracle vice president of product management, wrote a blog post. Oracle also plans to support the WebLogic 14.1.2 application server on Oracle Solaris/Sparc servers in the future.
