There is change in Java Development Kit (JDK) 8 licensing policy after January 2019.

Please suggest how to fulfill this prerequisites.

Can we use openJDK?





Downloading/Updating/Using Oracle JRE and/or Oracle JDK

Hexagon GSP, PPM, and SI Colleagues, 


This communication is being sent as a precaution to all employees about downloading/updating Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and/or Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) after January 2019.


PLEASE NOTE: this communication only addresses employee use of Java and not distribution of Java in Hexagon products. If you have questions about licensing and/or support of Java related to Hexagon products that are distributed, please contact Karen Paulukaitis & Pat Thompson.


Changes in Java Licensing


Beginning after January 2019, Oracle Corporation is changing its licensing for Java, including Oracle JRE and Oracle JDK, to a paid subscription beginning with:

  • Versions of Java 8 after 8u192 (free alternatives are listed below)
  • Oracle Java JDK 11 and later (free alternatives are listed below).

When this licensing change occurs, unless you are a “Commercially-licensed” employee or using Oracle technology software as defined in the Oracle Software Usage Policy, do not download Oracle JRE or Oracle JDK or updates thereof from Oracle websites or without management approval for purchasing a license.


Detailed information regarding the Java licensing change is here.


Which Employees are “Commercially-licensed?”


Commercially-licensed employees are those who are covered under existing Oracle commercial or partner agreements. Commercially-licensed employees include Siebel users and those employees using Oracle JDK related to product development, QA and product support.


Options for Obtaining Java for Non-Commercially-licensed Employees


Other than purchasing licenses and support from Oracle Corporation, here are other options for non-Commercially-licensed employees to obtain JRE and/or JDK licenses and updates:


  • Latest free versions of Oracle JRE and Oracle JDK, and licenses covered under the Oracle Software Usage Policy are located at \\\global\LMS\English\Oracle\Java. DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY JAVA SOFTWARE OR UPDATES FROM ORACLE’S WEBSITES


If you are using a source of Java other than Oracle Corporation, or no longer require Java, please uninstall from your computers all Oracle Java version(s) using Control Panel àPrograms and Features.

If you have Java licensing questions, please direct them to Karen Paulukaitis & Pat Thompson.


If you have issues uninstalling Oracle Java, or installing OpenJDK or Amazon Corretto, please open a ticket in ServiceNow.


Thank You,

Global IT
