THE CHANGING JAVA LANDSCAPE – OpenJDK for Linux & Windows
As of January 2019, Oracle has announced that Java SE public updates will no longer be available for “Business, Commercial, or Production use” without a commercial license.
Java has been one of the key technologies in the enterprise for decades and it is relied upon for the flexible and extensible architecture that can scale across almost any device or platform. It has a vibrant Open-Source community that spans across the entire planet.
Oracle has recently brought instability and uncertainty to the Java ecosystem with their new non-open-source licensing model which has many Java users evaluating their needs and their increasing reliance on Oracle.
