Apptimize supports server-side experimentation and release management through several server-oriented SDKs including Java.

Our server-side SDKs support programmatic experimentation (Dynamic Variables and Code Blocks) as well as Feature Flags.

Note: The Apptimize Java SDK officially supports Java 8 and above. Please contact us if you want to use the SDK but are on an earlier version of Java.
