Compatibility with the CUBA platform
On July 18, 2019 BellSoft reported that they together with Haulmont and carried out cross-testing of the products and technically confirmed that the CUBA platform is completely compatible to Liberica JDK. It means that all products created on the CUBA platform with guarantee work at the import-substituting environment of execution Java - Liberica JDK.
CUBA Platform is the platform aimed at effective development of corporate applications on Java and other languages compatible to JVM. The platform is developed by the Russian company Haulmont and extends according to the open license Apache 2.0 that means the actual lack of license restrictions on its use and also on the software products founded on this platform. Moreover, all development process is conducted openly, and source codes are available to the international community on the GitHub resource. All components used in the platform also meet the necessary requirements. The technology is used by tens of thousands of developers worldwide and maintained by the large companies of the Russian and export market: Rosoboronexport, Russian space systems, Robert Bosch, IKEA and others.
In spite of the fact that the ecosystem of Java is open, with it everything is not so simple. OpenJDK has about 20,000 known defects and to have confidence that assembly meets all Java SE specifications, it is necessary to undergo verification using Technology Compatibility Kit, and it is already extremely uncommon tasks. Oracle considerably toughened license policy of the commercial assembly (Oracle JDK) for which technical support is provided. Free assemblies (including from Oracle) have very short lifecycle, are delivered without technical support and are intended rather for enthusiasts than for commercial operation.
Since recent time the unified register of the Russian software was replenished with Liberica JDK - it is the supported development environment and start of Java programs which completely answers the principles of import substitution. The Russian company BellSoft which provides this assembly is one of participants of development of Java of the platform and only of the Russian companies enters the five of third-party contributors of OpenJDK, along with giants of the world market of software, such as SAP, Google, IBM. Thus the necessary quality level, competences and technical support meeting the requirements of digital sovereignty is provided.
