Is Java 17 really free?

As of September 13, 2021, Oracle Java 17 is available and is the first Java version licensed under an Oracle No-Fee Terms and Conditions License (NFTC), essentially free.

Java 17 offers thousands of performance, stability, and security updates, as well as 14 JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEPs) that further improve the Java language and platform to help developers be more productive.

Has anything changed in 2021 with the Oracle JDK license?

Yes. After initially deciding to only make Oracle JDK available to paying customers from 2019 onwards, at least for production use, Oracle has announced yet another change for Oracle JDK 17 onwards.

In September 2017, Oracle announced plans to distribute the JDK under the GPL as “Oracle OpenJDK” and also as the Oracle JDK under an Oracle Technology Network (OTN) license. Providing Oracle OpenJDK builds under the GPL was much appreciated, but feedback from developers, academia and businesses was that they wanted the reliable and robust Oracle JDK also with an unambiguous license. Oracle appreciates the feedback from the developer ecosystem and is pleased to announce that starting with Java 17 we are meeting exactly that demand.
