Since the ARL update #2424 on June 3, I find a number of "Java Development Kit" applications in FMNS that only have evidence containing "update" in the names. "Oracle Java Development Kit 8.0.211 Standard" is one of several examples.
Is that really according to the Oracle licensing rules?
Other JDK versions have more "substantial" evidence indicating that they might be possible to launch.

The Java Development Kit 8.0.x applications have been changed to "Commercial" classification, as noted above in the updates.
How about Java Development Kit 8 Standard, Java Development Kit 9 Standard and Java Development Kit 10 Standard?

Hi @sohbinong , as you've correctly pointed out, certain minor versions of Java 8 are commercial (namely 8.211 and 8.212) but Java 9 and 10 are technically classified as freeware but out of free support. Anyone on Java 9 and 10 is expected to upgrade to Java 11 at least.

Hi @INgrid , in the evidence details, the version is an indication of whether it's free or commercial. But you're better off checking in 'Installed applications' for the 'classification' field to check for 'freeware' or 'commercial' against the JDK.
There is an ARL update coming soon to address the commercial minor versions of JDK 8 (namely 8.211 and 8.212).

thanks so much for this reponse, it brings some light, but i am still slightly confused on how to create a Java license in Flx and which applications i should add to track compliance.
