Java Se Bcl License Agreement
Starting with java version 11 (specifically JDK version 11), Java Standard Edition is no longer available under the OBCL agreement. Instead, the rights of use (and the restrictions attached to them) are subject to the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) license agreement. These programs were sold on a named User Plus and/or processor measure (Java SE Advanced Desktop was only licensed on a named User Plus-Trik) where you paid a net license and a net support fee. As of January 2019, this licensing model is no longer available. Oracle only provides its Java Standard Edition programs on a subscription basis: Java SE Subscription and/or Java SE Desktop Subscription. My recommendation, start checking the license agreement instead to see if you are compliant. This should be done before considering the need to update security or business functions. They do not ensure that Oracle JDK has been released as part of a licensing agreement. (BCL for old Java or unpatched or later Java OTN SE) Many make the mistake when they start checking the Java license, they start checking if they need security updates/support or if they have used any commercial features. Oracle has continued to offer free use of Java SE under the Oracle Binary Code License (OBCL) agreement since the acquisition of Sun Microsystems. This use was limited and free only if certain conditions were met. F.JAVA LIMITATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY.
