For commercial use of  Oracle Java you will 2019 need to get from Oracle a commercial license. I suppose this has also impact to the cost of running ColdFusion server or  ColdFusion Builder? Or is it Adobes headache?

Hi All,

The JDK licensing is still under discussion at Adobe. Will announce the decision, once taken.

Regards,

Hi Suresh,

Thank you very much. +1 to Sean's question ("OracleJDK 11 or OpenJDK 11?") and Brad's questions (esp: "What Java providers will Adobe be supporting?").

Thanks!,

-Aaron

Hmm. That table (which Bardnet found had been shared on Slack) sure looks familiar. 🙂

On ColdFusion and its support for Java 9, 10, and 11


I hope whoever shared it offered some acknowledgement of where they got it. Don't worry, Bernhard, I'm not asking you to confirm that. 🙂 I'm just speaking rhetorically.

On Anit's subsequent reply, that's great to hear. Would be wonderful if someone would address the topic at CFSummit next week.

FWIW, since the opening of this thread (in July 2018), Adobe have created a blog post on the topic (in Oct 2018), though for now (Nov 15 2018) there is as yet no clarification on the matter. They say "We are currently exploring various alternatives within Adobe to handle this change. As soon as we are ready to communicate publicly about our future path, we will keep you posted on this very portal.":

Oracle's Java policy change - ColdFusion

It is interesting to note that Amazon will be providing a free long term support version of OpenJDK which that is used at Amazon  "internally on thousands of production services": Amazon Corretto Production-ready distribution of OpenJDK

You might wonder how does that differ from OpenJDK that is also free - the difference is Corretto will have Long Term Support (LTS) for each version - whereas OpenJDK will only get fixes in the latest version.

Just wanted to post that so people are aware of it, since it does look like an option I am looking into and hopefully using personally.

It seems Coretto will be available as Version 8 while OpenJDK (JDK 11.0.1 GA Release )  does not come as 8 for Windows.

I guess it will be hard for Adobe to make CF11 support JAVA 11, 12 or what ever is latest.

Same might be true for 2016.

Since posting my pointer to the Adobe blog post on the topic yesterday afternoon, I then published a pair of blog posts with more info, first on the whole Oracle licensing issue (for those wanting to understand it all better):

https://www.carehart.org/blog/client/index.cfm/2018/11/15/on_CF_and_commercial_use_of_java_going_for...

And then I posted another right after it about Corretto, the openjdk implementation from Amazon (which others here had also mentioned). See my more about it, and my successful brief testing of it with CF2016 (and why not yet 2018), and more:

https://www.carehart.org/blog/client/index.cfm/2018/11/15/considering_amazon_corretto_open_jdk

I'd welcome comments from folks there, or of course any corrections or additions.

An update: Yesterday, I received an e-mail from a member of Adobe ColdFusion Support, informing me that even the latest version of ColdFusion 2018 doesn't yet support Java 11. He reminded me of the time-line Suresh mentioned earlier: Jan/Feb 2019.

I am therefore resuming my tests with the last Oracle JDK 10 release, namely, JDK-10.0.2. I realize of course that Oracle Java SE 10 has reached ‘End of Support’.
