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.

Actually, from a software engineer's point of view, JDK is nothing fancy to think of / talk about. It's just there & it works. Until he/she has to set up a project from scratch, together with the build tool, a JDK has to be chosen. Also, when doing deployment work, having a reliable, readily available JDK to install to target systems is a blessing. Still, Oracle could have done a better job supporting OpenJDK, especially for commercial usage.

Oracle was costlier whereas OpenJDK had less frequent updates. Azul was average of both of them, so it was choosen.

OpenJDK is comparable to Oracle Java SE in most cases and you get away with significantly lower costs. Oracle Java SE have some advantages in performance on some native platforms but in most cases the OpenJDK performance is similar or at least good enough.
