The story I heard was that you can use Oracle Open JDK “free” commercial from here: jdk.java.net/. However, when it comes to the new frequency of six-month publications, I was told that if you wanted support beyond the 6 months you had to pay (LTS indicates that it will receive support/patches, but once 12 is available, you would have to update the 11 to 12, unless they have a commercial license paid for 11). The reason I wrote this post is pretty much the same reason Stephen wrote his — to draw people`s attention to the fact that we should no longer download the JDK-Build Oracle (commercial), because the license says they have to be paid to be used in production. From that point of view, I think Stephen and I agree. Yes, yes. For more than a decade, Oracle has been taking care of the OpenJDK open source community and offers the latest stability, performance and security updates for the latest release. These include updates scheduled more than a year in advance; Additional updates, if any and two feature updates (which also contain important patch updates) each year under the new launch frequency. Our contributions can be carried, analyzed and used by anyone in open source. You can download the latest OpenJDK version of Oracle Java for free on an open source jdk.java.net license. Hey CT: Big question.
The answers are in the licensing agreements. If your app needs to install and update binary files and use them for commercial purposes, the use of web interfaces also requires a license. It`s best to check if Java is launched from your web application as a process. But don`t forget, Java copied the web launch of the apps. openwebstart.com/ for a good explanation. April 2019 Patch release available on java.com website will be another license that will not be commercial. It`s best to turn off automatic updates as a first counter-measure, to ensure that users are not asked to install it. Otherwise, it is important to note that Oracle has developed a licensing tool that requires a subscription. A brief summary of the main terms of the OBCL agreement is shown below: Although Oracle are perfect in their rights to change the license, this does not mean that there is no moving tail and doing something scum. I`m not quite sure that`s the case, I remember reading somewhere that only Java files are CPE, while the HOTSPOT is naked GPL that causes a problem.
There are certainly no standard repositories that contain this code. The whole point (and this is like this for years) is that you can`t download the Oracle jdk without clicking on a license.
