For Oracle JDK will need to pay. What are the options now?
The debate on the relevance of Java continues. Some people say that it is becoming obsolete and more advanced languages are replacing it. Others disagree, citing the number of specialists who choose Java their profile skills year after year. In any case, one cannot ignore the fact that most of the existing software is written in Java, and customers, both internal and external, continue to use it.

What do you do? Use OpenJDK or pay for Oracle JDK? This is a question of profitability and how important Oracle support is for you. If your business cannot afford to support Oracle JDK, because you are a startup, a rising star with a brilliant product idea, but a hole in your pocket, it means your needs correspond to OpenJDK. You do not need to pay for it. And besides, if you are a startup, it’s not so critical for you, if your servers will not work for several hours until the technical specialists solve the problem. If you cannot afford downtime, you are more likely to work in a mature company, and therefore you should use Oracle JDK and subscribe to support. You can also decide to combine different models and install on some product servers that should be available 24/? Oracle JDK, and OpenJDK for internal applications that are not so critical for business.
In any case, you can continue to use Java further.
