possible impact of java licensing change?

Saw this when I updated my java
https://www.java.com/en/download/release_notice.jsp

With most of the players in content suppliers weather data etc starting to charge for access will we have to go to a paid software license or subscription model to cover costs? I think that it would violate the open source licensing. Thoughts?

even still, it looks like consumers will have to start paying for Java at the end of 2020.

I don't think that's what it says. This article is related to Java 8 SE. However, according to this page, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ol-135779.html, it appears that Oracle is phasing out their consumer Oracle Java in favor of OpenJDK for the wider public. Java SE (OracleJDK?) it appears will be only for commercial or enterprise use beginning with Java SE 11.

I think for end users nothing should change. Looks like Java 8, if anyone is still using it by 2020 will still be receiving consumer updates till then. Developers of SageTV will need to use OpenJDK.

IMHO, to me it seems Oracle is attempting to refocus Java as an Enterprise technology. Possibly part of a response to the Oracle/Android legal debacle.

They are trying to monetize it, I get cold calls for support contracts all the time about it.
