Re: Probably the end? Java requires a license by Jan 2019
Java doesn't require a license - it's the support from Oracle for the Oracle JDK that does. OpenJDK is more or less the same thing, maintained by Oracle engineers, and is under an open-source license. The Oracle JDK on the other hand is targeted at big businesses, probably using old systems, and it's those that Oracle are looking to take license fees from.

Further more, the way I understand it, this is largely for end-of-life support on previous versions of Java. This should in no way effect Grey Havens so long as they're not relying on old versions of Java to be updated.
