Oracle recently introduced new licensing rules for their Java runtimes, requiring us to carefully consider our future use of Java. They are requiring a subscription license purchase to receive updates. The Oracle JDK or Java SE is the most commonly used Java product in our environment. Activating and using the Commercial features of JAVA will require a license. What else can we use?
Release : 12.1

Oracle Java JRE and OpenJDK
We do not specifically require the Oracle version of the JRE or JDK. We support a number of different types that are being used with Web Viewer 12.1 including IBM Java and Java supplied with the various distributions of Linux. We are not recommending any particular distribution. A number of our customers have asked about OpenJDK. Feel free to chose a different distribution - see the list under Additional Information below
