Have you heard about Oracle’s new Java SE rules? Starting in 2019, what used to be free isn’t any more. This means you will have to pay for continued support on your Java SE and its later versions. If you’re using advanced commercial features of older versions of Java SE, you’ll also be required to pay. The licensing implications of these Java usage changes for you could be huge.
The bigger you are, the bigger your risk of license misuse and financial penalties. In many companies —perhaps yours too — deployments on desktops, servers, and clients are spread across a huge IT environment of data centers and virtualized machines. Does this sound familiar?
