It seems people are skittish enough now about Oracle that they are using OpenJDK instead at record rates, Oracle now only has 35% of the JVM install base. I made the "OpenJDK or bust" decision for any project I had sway over after watching a customer go through a licensing bait and switch with Oracle that cost them countless millions of dollars. After that I would never recommend their databases, Java, or cloud offerings. The problem though is that Oracle represents the overwhelming majority of the effort keeping OpenJDK and Java going. The more people run into the open source arms the more draconian I imagine Oracle will be. I'm mostly not using the JVM for projects right now but it is something to watch out for. #Java #openjdk #oracle https://sdtimes.com/software-development/eclipse-foundation-finds-significant-momentum-for-open-source-java-this-year/
