Java and Java-Lite

Oracle tee’s up its plan to start sqeezing more profit out of Java.   Its the Freemium model, so now you can pay for your JDK (if you want it to work alright) or if you’d rather, you can take the free version, spuce it up yourself so that it does what you need and then get sued by Oracle anyway.

Oracle cooks up free and premium JVMs • The Register


Adam Messinger, Oracle vice president of development, told QCon that Oracle plans to offer a “premium” edition of the JDK in addition to the open-source JDK.

Both, it seems, will be based on a converged JRockit VM and the Hotspot JVM from Sun Microsystems. The converged JVM will be released under the OpenJDK project.
