Issue/Introduction



1 Will Broadcom/CA provide Oracle JRE/JDK support and quarterly updates under their own licensing agreement with Oracle to <Customer>, or package Oracle java with software updates?
If not, <Customer> may incur Oracle Java costs for 100's of Oracle java instances across hosts with the engine (AWI GUI or Java CallAPI installed), depending on their system configuration.

--

2 As Broadcom will support OpenJDK in future, will Broadcom also support Azul on this basis? Azul Java is built from the OpenJDK source and is a certified build of OpenJDK

--

3 Will Broadcom be supporting Azul Java directly in the future?
 

Environment

Release: AUTWAB99000-12.2-Automic Workload Automation-Base Edition
Component:

Resolution

**1A) No. Oracle changed the terms of Java, not Broadcom/CA. It is the customer's responsibility to decide if they would like to receive the updates from Oracle and to purchase an appropriate license.
We will add OpenJDK support to V12.3 (scheduled GA June 28th, 2019) to help customers to run without this additional cost.

**2A) Broadcom will support Oracle Java 8, Oracle Java 11 and OpenJDK 11 builds from jdk.java.net/11. Azul Java is not on the list.

**3A) There is no current plan for this - however, an idea has been posted in the Community Ideation system and support/compatibility testing could be considered for a future release, with enough requests:
