Java 11’s Future

Hey guys, I am sure you all would’ve heard of the new JDK 11. Oracle has released it under the LTS banner. It has new features and improvements.

If you have heard of JDK 11 I am pretty sure you guys would’ve heard about the new licensing terms. In a nutshell it says “Hey, you can use JDK 11 for free during your development and testing but when you are deploying it to production you are supposed to pay Oracle”.

Considering that Java is one of the integral part of the Open-Source community what are your feelings about Oracle changing the licensing terms?

Will OpenJDK which wasn’t given much attention beat Oracle JDK to be the first choice of developers?
