Sure it would. Might be a bit slow starting up because the java is loading remotely but it works.

Subject: RE: Question on use of Amazon Corretto instead of Java for i

I'm guessing this wouldn't work if running ACS from a network folder?

It might be against the spirit of using tested software, but it might
also be palatable for the IT guys. You don't actually want JAVA
available for intruders to use, you just need it to run your applications.

This is what I always recommend.

Once you find a JRE that works well with it, make that part of the distribution package.

FWIW: I haven't tried the Amazon JDK ... but I've had great success with the OpenJ( implementation.
