I see this article being referenced on a June Redit thread: https://www.infoworld.com/article/3284164/java/oracle-now-requires-a-subscription-to-use-java-se.html Does this mean if you're using Oracle JDK, you now have to pay for it? We're using OpenJDK at the moment and will probably continue to do so
I have read it from this https://www.reddit.com/r/java/comments/86ce66/java_long_term_support/ From what I have read, you can still use OracleJDK for development. However for production you must pay. There are changes coming to OpenJDK, patches are only done in latest release and won't be backported to older version. There are some initiatives like AdoptOpenJDK which will do this. Also IBM and Red Hat may do the backporting for OpenJDK
Here is a short and a long explanation from Java Champions and vendors https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nFGazvrCvHMZJgFstlbzoHjpAVwv5DEdnaBr_5pKuHo/edit
thanks for the clarification
