At Azul, we have spent some time to create a little API that should help you to discover builds of OpenJDK from different distributions in a general way.

In this session, we will give you a short introduction on what the Disco API is and how it can help you finding the JDK/JRE of your choice.

At the moment the following distributions are supported: AdoptOpenJDK, Corretto, Dragonwell, GraalVM CE, Liberica, Liberica Native, Mandrel, OJDKBuild, OpenLogic, Oracle, Oracle OpenJDK, SAP Machine, Temurin, Trava, Zulu and Zulu Prime.
