Daily Dose - Oracle to Sell "Premium" JVM

  • submit to reddit
Tweets coming out of the weekend's QCon conference revealed Oracle's plan for a premium JVM that comes with a price tag.  Adam Messinger, the Oracle VP of development made the announcement saying that Oracle still plans to develop a free and open source version of the JDK.  "There will always be a high-performance gratis JVM," he said.  The premium version will be a product of both Sun's HotSpot JVM and Oracle's JRockit JVM, but we don't know if the free version will see the benefits of that merger.

The premium refers to Misson Control, JRockit RealTime, and Java for Business and enterprise support.

And "Java for Business" (Java with a price tag) is nothing new, it's been there for years (if anything the "premium" term is the new part).

I'd like to add a plea for validating sources on stories, and a request to look extra carefuly at stories from TheRegister.  As far as I can see, that story is all based on a single tweet which just talked about "JDK premium".  Adam was just repeating the announcement from JavaOne.

Thanks!  Eduard/o

This language also allows programmers who are familiar with the MapReduce framework to be able to plug in their custom mappers and reducers to perform more sophisticated analysis that may not be supported by the built-in capabilities of the language. - Joe Aldeguer
