Looking for any further comments, either company statements or anecdotal logs, regarding the charges/changes with Java 8 anticipated in December. Has this been discussed anywhere with the user group or in any particular logs? Our campus IT is looking for a "statement of responsibility", in essence, including additional charges or costs that we may have to assume. I know this is embedded, but any one have any insight as to how III is going to handle this?

I've submitted a ticket to III as well asking for clarification. They have not responded.

Just in case you have not had a reply or someone comes along later, I have this response from a technical lead via our customer rep:
"“We do install a “dedicated” (to the Sierra desktop SDK) Java with the initial installer, and when we need to update that major version, we do so by pushing a new JRE installer with the Sierra Java jar update and invoking it automatically.

Our use of the JRE does not extend to any of the “advanced” capabilities which trigger a different license and obligation than the base JRE. The base JRE functions are still under the same terms as they have been for many years.

Our customers do not need to worry about Oracle Java licensing at this point. Any upgrades required will be delivered as needed in a regular release when possible, or perhaps via a patch if expediting is needed.”"

Thanks Jacob. Campus IT were looking for a statement and I guess we can use a log / support response, but I guess this will have to do other than something more formal. Appreciate it, and yes we have actually removed java from several workstations and it appears Sierra can do "without" by using its own. Appreciate your responding. -- Susan
