Java Is Still Free

Starting with Java SE 11, Oracle provides their (OpenJDK based) JDK via

  1. Oracle OpenJDK builds — Under the existing Open Source GPLv2+CE license, and
  2. Oracle JDK — Under a paid commercial license (but free for development use), for those who do not wish to use the GPLv2+CE, or who are using an Oracle JDK with an Oracle product or service.
