Java Platform, Standard Edition 7 Reference Implementations

The official Reference Implementations for Java SE 7 (JSR 336) are based solely upon open-source code available from the JDK 7 Project in the OpenJDK Community. Binaries are provided for both the linux-x64 and windows-i386 platforms.

The binaries are available under two different licenses: The Oracle Binary Code License and the GNU General Public License version 2, with the Classpath Exception. For a given platform the binaries under different licenses are built from exactly the same source code and are functionally equivalent; the only real difference is the license itself. Which license you choose will depend upon your particular business and legal requirements.

These binaries are for reference use only!

These binaries are provided primarily for use by implementors of the Java SE 7 Platform Specification and are recommended for reference purposes only. The Reference Implementations have been approved by the JCP and will receive no further updates, not even for security issues. Binaries for development and production use will be available from Oracle and in most popular Linux distributions.

International use restrictions

Due to limited intellectual property protection and enforcement in certain countries, the JDK source code may only be distributed to an authorized list of countries. You will not be able to access the source code if you are downloading from a country that is not on this list. We are continuously reviewing this list for addition of other countries.
