Understand the complexities of Oracle Java Licensing

Gain clarity over your Oracle Java License estate

In April 2019, Oracle significantly changed the commercial and licensing impacts for Oracle Java SE. At the time, this represented a significant change as Oracle Java SE licenses were historically considered ‘free’ by businesses.

As of January 2023, the introduction of Oracle Java Universal subscriptions has changed the metric by which Java is priced, impacting future Java subscription purchases.

These changes impact all commercial Java users and represents another level of Oracle license complexity that can often trip up those responsible for license compliance within their organisation, particularly if you are approached by Oracle for an Oracle Java Audit.
