Oracle Java Licensing


As of April 16, 2019, Oracle Java made changes to their licenses. All applications, including software provided by third-parties, using Oracle Java for university businesses must now obtain a paid commercial license in order to run and to receive patch updates without fines. Without patching, systems will not receive the latest security updates, which is a significant security risk to the university. In addition, end users are also expected to upgrade to the latest version to ensure they meet security requirements.


  • Oracle Java licensing changes do not impact systems using Oracle Java for instructional and personal use.
