    Oracle charging for Java; OpenJDK


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    Campus IT has alerted me to this article from Oracle: 

    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 .


    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.'
