Recently Oracle announced massive changes to how Oracle Java is licensed. These changes impact everything from how Java is licensed to how the patches and update system works.
Given that Oracle has a history of aggressive audit practices and Java is everywhere, many organizations are very concerned. Companies are worried about what’s deployed on their networks and the possibility of a non-compliant finding worth potentially millions of dollars.
We have not seen official Oracle Java audits yet but given Oracle’s history with auditing it’s only a matter of time before they move to monetize Java. You don’t want to learn about a licensing gap during an audit.
We recommend getting ahead of the issue by performing a self-assessment of your environment to determine your potential Java licensing exposure. The challenge is that licensable Java titles are not always easily identified, and it can be time consuming.
