Dear Matt,

Thanks for bringing this up. I talked with our Tech Lead, Laney, and we discussed that we’ll likely be changing our releases to include OpenJDK, in conjunction with moving up to Java 9. We’ll be adding changing over to OpenJDK 9 to the roadmap (anticipated for fall 2018). Our hope is that there would be very little impact to the community, and that the move would be fairly seamless.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Oracle changing Java licensing

This came across another thread.  Oracle is quietly introducing changes to the Java 8 license.  After January 2019, updates will still be public but you will need a license for "business, commercial or production use".

I admittedly don't know what the ramifications would be for ASpace, but I thought I would pass it along just in case.
