If you want some low cost JDK provider where you need the frequent updates as well, you can go ahead for Azul Zing instead of OpenJDK. But if budget is not a concern, I would recommend going for some well known company such as Oracle. Also if you are using Azul for production, make sure to use it for Dev ENV too so as to reproduce issues.

The CLOUD development integrating web applications with web databases definitely needs a fast and memory-efficient platform like Eclipse OpenJ9. The garbage collector and SHARED CLASSES between processes make possible a fast response to the web client and API requests. Eclipse OpenJ9 needs better documentation to explain to the programmers the advantages over other JAVA implementations like HotSpot.

IBM released the Eclipse OpenJ9 under the Eclipse Foundation and open source thinking about the need for CLOUD development efficiency. Eclipse OpenJ9 could be more suitable if want to develop an API with cloud databases like MariaDB using AWS. The memory management of Eclipse OpenJ9 makes the web performance of API faster. The capacity to run shared CLASSES in a memory partition between processes gives Eclipse OpenJ9 a design advantage over other JAVA SDK platforms.
