Oracle JDK 8 on Apple M1 macbook


Is Oracle JDK 8 available for New Apple MacBook M1?

If no then how soon can we expect for it to be available?

    No message has been released about whether Oracle JDK will support M1 chip.And, it has passed 6 months nearly since Apple m1 chip has been released.I think maybe jdk8 will not support m1 chip , and , we may wish jdk11(LTS) and jdk16/17 in the feature

    That's a completely different question (JDK 11 vs JDK 8).

    There are many companies that have business-critical applications which require Oracle JDK 8 in order to be supported by the vendor, and the developers are unable to work on their local Macbooks to support those applications until Oracle issues a JDK 8 build for the M1 chip.
