Hello All,

If I use OpenJDK8 from RedHat and JRE 8 from Oracle, will I be charged for patches that need to be applied to JRE 8?  We are developing code locally, and then deploying the product to a server at another site that we do not own or maintain.

Thanks in advance.

Ravi

The answer is in here somewhere, but it's hard to understand (for me at least).  It seems that you can continue to develop software for free, but commercial users will have to pay a licencing fee if they use Oracle Java.

Who pays for the Oracle JRE, the developer or the end-user?
Surely the end-user has the choice to use another JRE !?!

That's a matter to be determined between those two. If I'm developing Java code for another organization, then paying the licence fee for Java may be something that my business does. Or I might charge the fee to that organization. It all depends on how the relationship is structured.

Surely the end-user has the choice to use another JRE !?!


That's also a matter to be determined between them. If I'm developing Java code for somebody else than I might want them to use the same JRE, to avoid potential problems. Or they might want me to develop under the same JRE which they are already using. Again, it depends.
