Keeping Java current: Licensing & Upgrading Options

Presented by

Simon Ritter, Deputy CTO, Azul * John Abbott, Co-Founder & Analyst, 451 Research

About this talk

A conversation with Simon Ritter, Java Champion and Deputy CTO of Azul, hosted by John Abbott, co-founder of 451 Research. Simon and John will discuss the evolution of Java, how it is licensed today and what options and alternatives are available to customers, now and in the future. Java is still one of the most popular languages in current use, but many companies running Java as a platform for their enterprise applications are still on very old versions, with some 15 percent of developers still using JDK 7, released over a decade ago. Support for Java 7 from Oracle ended in July 2022, leaving customers with choices to make. What are their options? What are the risks of remaining unsupported? How readily can organizations transition to OpenJDK? And how should organizations plan their longer term migration and upgrade strategies?
