Which Java versions does JPedal support?

Compatible Versions

The minimum compatible version for JPedal is Java 8 until October 2024, when it will be raised to Java 17. We currently support JPedal running on Java 8, Java 11, Java 17, Java 21, and the latest Java version.

We review the Java versions supported every October and contact all our customers for their input. We will give a minimum of 12 months notice of any changes in our Java version support.

JPedal is a multi-release jar. It will run on Java 8 without module path and also supports the module path available in Java 11 and later.

A note about OpenJDK 8:

Whilst we support Java 8, due to bugs in the OpenJDK 8 JVM implementation, running JPedal with OpenJDK 8 can cause lower-quality rendering, missing image content, higher memory usage, and potentially JVM crashes.

If you are currently running JPedal using OpenJDK 8 we strongly recommend you update to at least OpenJDK 11 or use an alternative JDK provider.
