    Description

    Campus IT has alerted me to this article from Oracle: 
    https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/overview/oracle-jdk-faqs.html 

    Does this affect licensing for the Java Virtual Machine / Saxon8.jar that the Aleph clients require for printing? 

    I'm being urged to switch to OpenJDK so that we don't need to buy a license for Java SE .

    Resolution

    Please see the Cross-product article:  Ex Libris response to Oracles Java license change   .

    OpenJDK will be released with Aleph V23.3 (June, 2019) .

    NOTE:   One site decided to license Java, noting:  "It's quite affordable.'
