Java 8 - commercial license needed in 2019

Postby Bernd.N » Thu Apr 26, 2018 9:29 am

Oracle announced there will be no more free updates in 2019 for Java 8:
https://www.java.com/en/download/release_notice.jsp

Did anybody hear about the costs of commercial licenses?
Customers start to ask about it.

Here Oracle lists different Java releases with numbers 8, 9, 10 and 11:

Are releases with a number higher than 8 of relevance for Servoy?

Today I did an update to the latest Java version on one computer.
Oracle then showed a hint that from beginning of 2019, a commercial Java license will be needed for commercial users.
It showed this on this link:
http://java.com/de/download/release_notice.jsp

On that side are more links at the end, especially:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/eol-135779.html
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/javaclientroadmapupdate2018mar-4414431.pdf

Here are some informations regarding the costs:

And this is an older article from 2016 with relevance to this theme:
