Abstract

Java 8 (LTS) and Java 11 (LTS) will no longer be distributed by Oracle in the same $free and free (as in use) way that the industry is used to. There are $free and free (as in use) ways you can get OpenJDK/Java from Oracle and also production ready OpenJDK builds by other OpenJDK/Java providers such as IBM, Red Hat, Amazon, and AdoptOpenJDK.  Come to this panel to ask the gnarly questions about costs, freedom of use, who governs Java/OpenJDK and what providers you can bet your Java infrastructure on for the next 5, 10, 15 years!
