sidebar of the OpenJDK FAQ. Moreover, OpenJDK passes Oracle's TCK
tests, else Oracle would not permit it to be marked with the "Java"
brand. It runs a great many production boxes.

Nevertheless, if the client insists on obtaining a binary package
obtained direct from Oracle, then follow Michael's link to relevant
