Till now we are using Oracle Java 8 for our Tomcat based Web Application (running on SLES 11 SP4). In SLES 12 SP2 we are looking to migrate to SUSE supported Java so that we can deliver the Java security updates along with OS patch instead of delivering a separate Oracle Java.

We have observed SUSE supports two flavors of Java - OpenJDK and IBM Java. So we want to know which is better in terms of support provided by SUSE and ease of migration and development. We use Windows machines for development.
