JDK 17 is the latest Long Term Supported (LTS) version of the Java platform, released in September 2021. LTS versions will have regular releases for the coming years and you don't need to switch to a newer version after 6 months as you do with those 'interim' JDK versions.
The features in an LTS version are kept stable so it is ideal for running your enterprise applications. Once you switch to an LTS, you can safely update to any minor release to accommodate for security issues and bug fixes of the JDK platform, but without needing to perform a migration.
