On April 16, 2019, Oracle officially announced commercialization of Java products. These are available under a new license termed as OTN (Oracle Technology Network) and are free for personal individual desktop use and  for development, testing, prototyping, and demonstration purposes.

Prior to this announcement, there were a few builds for version 5,6,7 which were only available to Oracle licensed customers. These builds were not available publicly. i.e for version 5, builds after 1.5.0_23 are only available to Oracle Customers version5reference.

Similarly, for JDK 6 has reached end of public updates. Releases after 1.6.0_45 are only available to Oracle Customers version6reference

For Version 7, JDK 7 has reached end of public updates. Releases after 1.7.0_80 are only available to Oracle Customers version7reference

What is changed?

To accommodate above changes, Flexera is going to update the Java applications for version 5, 6, 7 in ARL

Evidence will be separated based on build information into free and commercial application. Hence new application will be created, and all the free builds will be associated to it. Commercial builds will be kept as part of existing application by updating classification as commercial.
