Here is a question that I have for you all.

In the past, I always downloaded the JDK from Oracle. In fact, I'd go to http://java.sun.com which I can remember, and it redirects to https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index.html.

But nowadays, the Oracle JDK changes every 6 months, and it soon becomes unsupported. And I can't use the Oracle JDK in production without paying some kind of fees. I never bothered to find out what I would have to pay. Right now, I go to http://adoptopenjdk.net to get a free JDK 8 or JDK 11. But there is also Amazon Corretto https://aws.amazon.com/corretto/. And other options.

Where do you see yourself getting your JDK in 2019 and beyond?

Thanks,

Cay

I'm currently on OpenJDK 11, which I got from https://jdk.java.net.

My Java 8 is from http://adoptopenjdk.net/, my Java 11 is from https://jdk.java.net/. I think I'll use the latter for any new releases as well.

I do too, but I keep a copy of Oracle's Java 8 around so that I can do simple JavaFX apps -- just tests really.  Without that, I would have to create an entire Maven project for one simple app.
