JRockit is Now Free

Announce in Henrik's blog. Check his post

Quoting key points:

Q: Does this mean I can now use JRockit with any Java application?
A: Yes, under the same terms as you currently use the Oracle (Sun) JDK. You don't need to inform us and you don't need to pay anything.

...

Summary (check the license for details):
  • JRockit is now free (gratis) for development and internal production use on general purpose computers. Clarification: I stole this wording from the license text. These are the same terms that have been used for the Sun JDK for the last ten years or so.
  • Commercial features continue to require a commercial license. This includes most features currently in JRockit Mission Control, JRockit Real Time and JRockit Virtual Edition. Previously, it was only possible to get a commercial license for these features as part of Oracle products (such as WebLogic Server), they can now be purchased standalone for use with any Java application.
  • No other major changes. Specifically, redistribution of the JDK is permitted, now also applicable to JRockit.
