I searched and looked in the FAQ but didn't find this - can somebody let me know if there are Java clients for Windows other than those provided by Oracle? We are stuck on version 6 (which I believe is also called platform 1.6) due to an application we can't yet upgrade, and looking for alternatives. Oracle charges a pretty penny for ongoing support for this end of life version, and I'm trying to figure out what options we have for ongoing support, such as other vendors that provide Java clients for Windows.

Oracle (and formerly Sun) has always been extremely careful to ensure that new Java versions are backwards compatible with older versions. You should be able to run your application on Java 7 without modifications (you will not even need to recompile it).
