Oracle will require an organization to purchase a Java License for every single employee
There is a publicly available price list located here. In it, you will see that Oracle has adopted a new metric, “Employee for Java SE Universal Subscription”, and a new cost structure.
Essentially, what Oracle wants to do (or has done) is license every employee in the organization for both workstations and server access (regardless of whether they access Oracle Java on those platforms or if they are development-only).
This might be good for some organizations and be more costly for others. Miro is not recommending that this new method of licensing be adopted. We are attempting to learn more about this by asking numerous questions.
Our Java sources within Oracle have not responded so far. So stayed tuned.
But consider this new licensing model. Miro can assist with determining if this or the former metrics are correct for your organization.
