Description

  • Impact of the Oracle Business Model Change on PTC Products
  • Java support by PTC from January 2019
  • Oracle has announced changes to their Java support policies effective January 2019 that affect many PTC products that use Java
  • After January 1, 2019, PTC will no longer be authorized to distribute non-publicly available versions of Java JRE (Java Runtime Environment) or the JDK (Java Development Kit) with product installations or in maintenance updates
  • Post-January 2019, PTC will no longer distribute Java for any new product releases or any maintenance update, except for free trial and freemium products
  • For products released prior to January 2019, PTC may continue to distribute a publicly-available version of Java with the product release only
  • It will be necessary to retain support contracts with Oracle starting in January 2019 to receive updates to Java for PTC products and to install new versions of products
  • Is OpenJDK supported?
