Here is a transcript of the relevant discussion:

With the change in the Oracle license, I want to know if it is possible to
use OpenJDK instead of Oracle Java on Mac OS X . And if so, which
distribution should I use: Correto, AdoptOpenJDK, Zulu or an other one? And
is there a difference between them?Wich version should I use : 8, 9, 11, 12
or 13?

@ricounet67 All the different flavors of OpenJDK I have tested work. But
there are three important considerations for Fiji right now: 1) Java 8
works best; 2) a JDK is preferred over a JRE if you want to develop Java
code from within the Script Editor; and 3) a few plugins use JavaFX, so an
OpenJDK including OpenJFX is needed for that, at least when using Java 8.
My favorite distros meeting these requirements right now are:
Zulu JDK 8 + OpenJFX
JBRSDK8 from JetBrains
We are planning to update the Fiji bundled Java very very soon to use
JBRSDK8 across all platforms.
An advantage of JBRSDK8 over the Zulu OpenJDK is that the JetBrains runtime
includes some backported fixes from later versions of Java, including some
graphical improvements that make Scenery + SciView work better.
