Until January 2019, over 70% of commercial Java applications used the Oracle JDK JVM. However, Oracle’s new licensing requirements for Java SE (Oracle’s JDK runtime) updates and support has many application development and delivery teams sizing up their options.

The least disruptive option is to keep using Oracle Java and manage new fees. For many organizations this means paying million-dollar Oracle invoices or risk licensing compliance fines. Industry analysts, such as Gartner and Forrester are recommending OpenJDK adoption with supported builds of OpenJDK from other vendors, such as OpenLogic.

Why Is OpenLogic Qualified to Provide Java Support?

OpenLogic has a long and rich history of OpenJDK community contributions. We believe in and support the open source community development model, and that is reflected in our contributions.

In August 2019, OpenLogic recognized that the current state of Java WebStart technology in OpenJDK was not as capable as the Oracle JDK equivalent. The build was missing critical functionality such as site exceptions, jar key matching, Windows Proxy settings, and other functions.

OpenLogic added functionality to IcedTea-Web to bring parity with Oracle’s WebStart distribution. These upgrades were accepted into IcedTea-Web 2.0.
