Oracle Java SE 7 End of Extended Support (Doc ID 2809708.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2022

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 to 7 [Release 7]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Oracle Java SE 7 (Oracle JDK 7 and Oracle JRE 7) Extended Support period ended after July 2022. For more details, search for “Oracle’s Java Releases” in the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for Oracle Fusion Middleware.

When a product’s Extended Support period ends, the product goes into Sustaining Support mode, as defined by the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy. That is, no further patch updates (no bug fixes, security fixes, or feature implementations) will be provided, and only limited support will be available after the end of the Extended Support period. See Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap for additional information.

With the end of Extended Support for Java SE 7, certain older versions of various Oracle Fusion Middleware products will no longer have a certified JDK available. See the Java SE End of Life and Oracle Fusion Middleware Policy for more information.  Contact the appropriate Oracle Support group if you have more questions.


Support customers using Java SE 7 should upgrade to a supported version of Java SE, such as Java SE 8 or Java SE 11, for comprehensive support of their Java Runtimes.  If you have a Java SE Subscription, are running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, or you use Java SE with another Oracle product that requires a Java Runtime, you can download patches from My Oracle Support:

If you have not purchased Oracle Java SE Support or an Oracle Java SE Subscription for your custom or third-party Java applications, download the latest JDK from:

This website includes specific use restrictions.

Java SE 7 users migrating to Java SE 8 are encouraged to read the JDK 8 Adoption Guide. Those who are migrating to Java SE 11 should read the Oracle JDK Migration Guide for Java SE 11. And for those migrating to JDK 17, we encourage you to read the Oracle JDK Migration Guide for JDK 17.
